Episode 12 – “Devil’s Snare”
Harley and her crew, Clayface, Dr. Psycho, King Shark, Sy and Poison Ivy try to stop the maniacal tree army from killing all of Gotham at the Jazz festival. That’s right, Ivy can’t control these twisted trees.
The Justice League shows up and assumes that it is Harley and her crew’s diabolical doing. Wonder Woman and Superman threaten to entrap them in The Phantom Zone.
Just as they are about to be sucked into the zone, Ivy grabs Wonder Woman’s golden lasso and wraps it around her, forcing her to tell the truth. Ivy admits that they had nothing to do with the tree army. It is Scarecrow and the Legion of Doom. Superman and Wonder Woman let them go just as another villain appears to claim responsibility:
Queen of Fables. She traps the Justice League in the book.
Then she “beanstalks” Harley & crew leaving them prey for the giant in the clouds. Ivy calls the one man who can save them in the skies: Kite Man. Harley finally learns that Kite Man and Ivy are dating.
You’ll have to watch the rest of this action-packed adventure to learn if Harley & company escape the one-eyed Giant and cloud city. Learn the shocking answer behind Kite Man’s on one knee request. Find out what happens when something else emerges from the Legion of Doom and see just what the Joker has to say as the ultimate criminal mastermind behind it all.
This episode has it all: cameos of the famous superheroes: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, a powerful menacing threat, nonstop action for the entire 22 minute episode, drama, reveals, shocks and surprises. It’s the perfect episode of the season so far.
Why wasn’t this the live action movie made instead of Birds of Prey? This is fantastic TV. I can’t compliment it enough. Awesome writing, animation, voice acting, it’s the perfect package. Best episode of the series so far!
Next week is the season finale.
