Wow. Truly a solid episode of Harley Quinn this time out. I really dug how the drama was paced like a comic in this chapter of the series. Lots of moving pieces to the story that totally drew me in- part comedy (Bats/Dent/Jim), part thriller (the bombing sequence at Arkham with Joker’s subsequent escape), part buddy story (Pam and Harl). Good stuff all the way around.
“F*ck off Narc!”
“You still alive? Guess I owe Riddler a twenty.”
Pam was the quintessential visage of badassery in this eps. Love. her.
“I want to eat a normal meal like a normal person in a normal insane asylum!” Joker had some funny lines and some very compelling dialogue to deliver in this episode. Although it was another of his fake outs he did manage to make up a pretty intriguing origin story about himself this time.
Harvey Dent’s unbridled greed for voter turnout rather than concern for public safety shows us that he had some baddie in him long before Maroni threw the acid in his face. Makes sense as he would go on to struggle with a huge angel/devil duality complex later in life.
Dent: “Licorice Batman?”
Gordon: “I thought you were out?”
Dent: “I found more.”
Poor Jimbo. Just can’t ever seem to get that break he so desperately deserves. Christopher Meloni is sooo good as Gordon.
Really, really loved watching Harl and Pam’s first moment of bonding here. So good and so authentic. Now we can see how and why they were destined to become true BFFs.
Pam: “Alright, alright, I guess I was wrong. I guess the acid did change him.”
Psycho: “Which is why I just smoke joints. Hahaha! F*ck you- that was good one. Papa needs his nap.”
Once again Psycho’s got jokes and they’re good ones.
Such a great episode. Thanks again team HQ. You bring it every time and I couldn’t ask for more- you totally ROCK.
