Episode 4 – “Thawing Hearts”
Harley and team equipped with the stolen flamethrower from episode 3 are entering Mr. Freeze icy lair to enact revenge.
While traveling through the tunnel entrance, they learn via text message (really?) that Ivy has accepted Kite Man’s marriage proposal.
They dispatch the frosty henchmen easily, with King Shark chomping heads and Harley using the razory edge of her ice skates to decapitate at will.
Mr. Freeze arrives and easily freezes and captures the crew. We learn that Mr. Freeze is experimenting on mice trying to find a cure for his dying wife. His new plan is to graduate from mice to humans and use Harley and her crew as the first human experiment (the mice are glad! lol).
Harley strikes a deal on the table.
Ivy is a genius biochemist, she can find a cure, begs Harley.
Meanwhile, Kite Man is obsessed with having their wedding at the Old Gotham Corn Factory that his nemesis Condiment King is also trying to secure.
You’ll have to tune in to find out what happens with Mr. Freeze’s wife as well as if Harley & crew escapes. Also, will Kite Man secure his coveted wedding venue? Will Harley understand what true love is about?
This episode showcases a lot of what makes this show outstanding. A simple story about revenge turns into an exploration of what true love means. Harley learns a lot about her relationship with Joker and what it truly lacked, even though he’s not even in the episode. We see Mr. Freeze as diabolical, but having a loving motive. This is one of the better episodes of the series and my favorite of season two so far.
Overall episode rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️½
