Episode 11 – “Harley Quinn Highway”
The title graphic gives away the outcome of the obvious resolution to the cliffhanger last episode.
We don’t know how it happens, though, which tunes us in to find out how and why. That is the basis of this episode: Harley patching it up with the crew and working together to break Ivy out.
Oh, and Frank the Plant! He’s seriously one of the greatest animated supporting characters ever.
Pretzel wrap wieners! “It’s like eating my childhood.”
But Scarecrow is on the prowl, making a vicious fear toxin based on Ivy’s DNA that he wants to unleash on the world. Watch this and find out whether or not the plot is foiled and how/if Ivy is rescued.
This series is strongest when Harley is leading her crew of Clayface, Dr. Psycho, King Shark, Ivy (even though she doesn’t feel like she’s in the team) on missions as well as the relationship with Ivy. Stories involving uniting the team against the worst of the worst DC villains. In particular, I’d like to see more of them spending foiling the most heinous Legion of Doom plans. Looks like that might be the direction this is headed. Sure, they can and should do side stories here and there — just to mix it up — profiling specific characters as long as Harley is involved.
This episode is in the top three for me so far. Sy’s Transformer-transformation is his best moment. An amazing 22 minutes of fun and entertainment.
