By no means concern, although, as despite the fact that all appears misplaced, an surprising serving to hand comes from The Riddler. Regardless of that he and Harley have been at odds this season, he desires to flee Arkham greater than he desires to see his foe trapped so he concocts a really creative scheme. Fortunate for this fan of Chris Meloni’s bonkers Jim Gordon, it facilities round Gordon’s obsession with besting Batman. See, if Ivy and Kite Man are getting married then there’s probably going to be tons of of villains sitting fairly within the previous Gotham Corn Manufacturing facility, simply ready for somebody to bust them.
Meloni’s Gordon has been a pleasure to look at all through each seasons of Harley Quinn; he’s a horrible cop and utterly unhinged and it’s possible probably the most lifelike model of a cop who’s persistently proven up by a person in a large bat go well with that we’ll ever get. It is a sensible solution to play on these insecurities in addition to organising a killer showdown at Ivy and Kite Man’s marriage ceremony. It’s additionally an ideal inciting incident for Harley to make her break from Arkham to attempt to save her buddy. In spite of everything, as she states: “If I can’t break my greatest buddy’s marriage ceremony then nobody can.”
In an interview with EW earlier this yr, showrunner Halpern shared the staff’s emotions about the best way they finally determined to cope with the connection on the heart of the present, explaining that they “needed it to be messy, not clear, sort of painful, however finally attending to a very good place.” This episode is a good instance of simply how profitable the present is at doing simply that. Harley and Ivy do finish this season on a excessive word, in a spot the place it appears that evidently they may simply get that glad ending, but it surely isn’t straightforward and it isn’t clear. It hurts folks and it places them at risk. And that feels proper and actual, and it makes the lead up really feel utterly and completely price it.
However earlier than the pair can each figuratively and actually drive off into the sundown, Harley has to face down indignant bridesmaids, Gordon in disguise, and even her personal guilt round hurting Kite Man. For those who’ve been studying these opinions you’ll know I’m not the world’s biggest Kite Man fan, which is why I’m giving this episode further props for letting him have a very highly effective second of company that highlights simply how a lot he was harm by Harley, Ivy, and their betrayal. After their vows are disturbed by Gordon and his goons, Harley tries to save lots of the day by providing to marry the pair within the wreckage of the Corn Manufacturing facility. To his credit score, although, Kite Man lastly sticks up for himself, realizing that Ivy has been utilizing him to settle and that he deserves higher. Not solely is it a surprisingly shifting second but it surely additionally provides the lovers a clear break.
In order the episode involves the tip we get what we’ve all been ready for as Harley and Ivy drive by way of a destroyed Gotham in a beautiful automotive with a Simply Married signal on the again. When “The Finish” rolls throughout the display, it’s straightforward to think about this as the ultimate episode of the present. Though this reviewer would like to see one other season of Harley Quinn, this could be an ending that I'm completely glad with. However after such a stellar season it could be a disgrace if we didn’t get to see what Harley Quinn can do subsequent!
