Harley Quinn’s second season comes to a very bizarre end, but then, what else would you expect from this show?
Harley’s second season is almost over, and things come to a head on many fronts. There’s the army of Parademons, the returned Justice League, a looming wedding, and the unresolved issues between Harley and Ivy.
After a long string of not managing to take responsibility for things she’s done (arguably running headlong from it), Harley is finally getting some self-awareness after the chaos of the “Bachelorette.”
Harley is good at a lot of things, and avoiding dealing with her feelings is way up on that list. She led an invasion of Earth, or least Gotham, to not think about her and Ivy kissing, and now she’s throwing herself into a new distraction.
there’s a lot of chaos as Harley confronts her “Inner (Para) Demons.”
They manage a decent storyline in spite of their constant jokes, and continue another story from B:TAS in “Thawing Hearts.”
The new status quo in Gotham continues to look ugly, and Harley is bound and determined to make it worse. She’s made her list, checked it twice, and now is going up against the ice.
There’s a new status quo, such as it is, in Gotham, and Harley is absolutely not accepting it. Echoing the major No Man’s Land story from the Batman comics, Gotham has been given up on by the government and divided up by many of Batman’s major foes.
Season Two begins with “New Gotham,” which is an interesting little mess. As a quick recap: the Justice League is trapped in the Fairy Tale Realm, Joker is MIA possibly dead, Batman is missing, and Gotham is in ruins.
Last episode ended with the shocking death of Poison Ivy, the triumph of the Joker, and things looking horrible for the crew. Now they need to figure out how to get back on top in “The Final Joke.”
