Episode 9 – “Bacherlorette”

Harley has arranged an elaborate bachelorette party on Wonder Woman’s Amazonian all-women island. They take the invisible plan and en route, of course, birds crash violently into the plane and splatter violently.

Once on the island, they take an invisible car to the hotel. Catwoman makes sure to put Harley on the spot on her and Ivy, “you two hooked up” — Harley admits that they just kissed.

Meanwhile, the bachelor party aboard is on a ship with Frank The Plant, Kite Man.

King Shark gets a fairly detailed side story underwater where he’s part of a forced marriage. His bride is Tabitha, a hammerhead sharkette that can chainsmoke underwater lol.

Naturally neither one wants to get married, but it’s part of a family tradition.

Meanwhile, Harley tries to convince Ivy that their relationship, now intimate, can add a new dimension to their friendship.

Animated pillow talk, no. More like horror (from Ivy) and delight (from Harley)

Ivy is plagued with guilt and wants to escape the island. Harley convinces Ivy to enjoy the rest of the bacherlorette festivities she has planned, including some killing and foiling an eco-terror plan on the island.

You’ll need to tune in to this episode to learn what Ivy thinks of Harley’s plan to take their relationship to the next level, whether or not they successfully foil Lex Luthor’s diabolical plan on the Amazonian island and if King Shark gets married.

Summary

No other episode of Harley Quinn to date has been as provocative before it has aired based on a thumbnail screencap as this one showing Harley and Ivy in bed and looking very much like, “um, what are we doing here?” The title of the episode suggests there was a party, perhaps numerous libations and the end result was sleeping in the same bed together. Is that what happened or just what looked like what happened?

This episode takes us there — and then some — with Harley and Ivy’s complicated, yet loving relationship. It also gives King Shark an odd, but charming side story, oh, and can’t forget the off the chain bacherlorette party, complete with Catwoman, Mr. Freeze’s wife and some gal named Jen, that doesn’t want to be called Jen.

I love this wild, crazy show. The great stories just keep coming every week. Taking a half star away for the King Shark story which was less compelling than the bizarre bachelorette story. Would rather have seen something involving Kite Man a little more interesting instead of him just putting a puzzle together with Frank The Plant and Clayface.

Overall episode rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️½
