Episode 2 – “Riddle U”
Electricity is in short supply, except for Riddle U where The Riddler has created a green-themed electricity universe paradise … or so it seems.
Harley and her crew go undercover to kill the Riddler and steal the power. Two-face’s crew sidetracks Dr. Psycho and King Shark as they try to find a water filter (so the crew doesn’t have to eat water with rodents swimming around in it). They modify some cars and tear up the henchemen.
Also, undercover a hairy-chested Commissioner Gordon joins his daughter. A bit of a gross-out moment as he picks out chips out of his “captured chest hair.” Gordon’s daughter tells Harley & Ivy that kids are missing from the university and she wants to see The Riddler taken down.
Tune in and find out the disturbing, yet funny secret behind the Riddler’s power source. Will Harley & company expose the scheme and beat down The Riddler and his goons?
This episode is a little bit like Harley Quinn meets Mission Impossible with an environmentalist themed twist. How does Ivy disguise her green-tinted skin? Does she have some sort of flesh-toned makeup? Harley’s undercover disguise is pretty much a preppie dress outfit and not having colored hair. Logic tongue-firmly-in-cheek aside, loved this one. Great jokes, a fun adventure, excellent writing and it stays pretty much on task.
It seems like this season, at least in part, is going to be about going after the former Legion of Doom supervillains and trying to restore some sort of order to Gotham. I’m down for that storyline. Another great, recommended episode. If you aren’t watching this series, get this in your watchlist ASAP.
Overall episode rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
