Harley Quinn S2E8 Review: Put Gotham On the Map

Literally.

Light spoilers:

This week’s episode picks up after Harley (Kaley Cuoco) and Poison Ivy’s (Lake Bell) kiss last week with everyone wondering what this means for the series going forward. For right now not a whole lot. Harley is acting her usual self by going completely in the opposite direction and reminding anyone who would listen that she’s just a bad ass babe who kisses people randomly and for no reason. Compensating poorly.

For the main plot we have James Gordon (Christopher Meloni) cleaning up and getting ready to put Gotham back on the map, literally. In order to accomplish this the President tells him that he will need to take out every remaining supervillain and that means Harley must go. After a warning from Batgirl, Harley decides her best chance at survival is to go raise a demon army. In turn Jim raises an army of his own. Sure to be a bloodbath.

Over on the b-plot, Poison Ivy is finally meeting Kite Man’s (Matt Oberg) parents ahead of their wedding. It’s another chance at seeing Poison Ivy in her rebellious anti-authority state but otherwise more of a set up than a payoff.

It’s nice to see Dr. Psycho (Tony Hale) playing more of a supporting role this week instead of his normal state of hating whatever Harley and her crew are cooking up. Psycho is so happy at the idea of taking over the world that he is literally hard and he’s going to help as much as he possibly can in order to see his dream of world domination come true.

Harley and Ivy’s potential relationship is going to take some heart to heart in order to come to fruition and that’s not going to be fixed in a half an hour. With five more episodes left in the season, it may be another month until this plot detail is resolved.
