First of all the recap from Frank: Perfect.
So basically Ivy’s wedding to Kiteman is what Harley unleashing the parademons onto the world was for Harley. She’s running away from her feelings and using Kiteman (yes,using),to hide behind and avoid these intense scary feelings that she has for Harley it’s just not as apocalyptic as what Harley did (but I guess in a way Ivy’s impending wedding is an apocalypse of sorts) I don’t know what makes her think that a wedding and a piece of paper that says “you’re married” is going to change what she truly feels inside, what are you going to do avoid Harley for the rest of your life? You’re just changing the scenery honey not the situation.
Fate’s calling Ivy, and I need you to pick up the phone.
and this is the second time I said this but poor chuck lol. Ivy losing it because they messed up an 18,000 dollar Vera Wang dress and Ivy’s string of cursing followed the “hold my hair” bit had me cracking the f*** up.
“ hold my hair”
“ yeah, sure honey.”
Kiteman! thinks Ivy is rushing things and when he thinks you’re moving too fast you’ve got a problem. He is starting to notice something is wrong with Ivy and I half expected Ivy to say: “I’m fine, the bachelorette party was fine, me and Harley slept in separate beds!”
Joker coming back I think was handled very well and I was honestly surprised. I liked Harley and Jokers dynamic this time around. Glad to see Harley thought ahead about controlling him. Their fight scene with the parademons is officially one of my favorite fights hands down. Sooo surprised how motivating Joker was for Harley to go and fight for her girl. When I say SHOCKED…
Loved the “Batman Returns, Batman Begins” bit
And Psycho how does your backstory lead to the distaste for women? enlighten me please lol
Psycho mind controlling Ivy was a fleeting thought I had in the back of my mind back in episode 10 when he took control of Clayface and King Shark. And I just thought wouldn’t it be messed up to put the one person that Harley cares about more than anything against her. To not only use her as a human shield but also force them to fight, make Ivy kill her because Harley would never hurt her best friend. So evil.
And then it happened and then wow things just got interesting. Harley vs. Ivy is something I want but also really don’t want because this is going to hurt. I don’t know if I’m ready for next week. Harley has been hurting a lot these past few episodes and then Psycho went and did this. Good god.
Honestly I feel like “the power of love” is what’s gonna be the solution to this problem but I hope they don’t completely go to the clichéd route of Harley kissing Ivy and then everything is back to normal. I don’t really want this to just be a “quick fix” and done so easily.
Great episode the next one feels like a heartbreaker.
