Harley Quinn s2e4: Thawing Hearts

Air Date: April 24, 2020

Rating: 9/10

After gaining a way into Mr. Freeze’s section of the city, Harley is immediately captured by Freeze and held captive with the rest of her crew. Meanwhile, Ivy and Kite Man try to find a wedding venew.

I thought Mr. Freeze was amazing and they captured his essence while also making him just as much their own character fit for this show as everyone else has been. I hope that he can come back for later episodes at some point, even if that doesn’t make any sense at all. I was just very impressed by Alfred Molina’s performance in this role.

I was less impressed with the side story here, though it does tie in well at the end of the episode. But the middle of it with Kite Man stressing out about not getting the location he wants for their wedding just feels like it drags on for a very, very long time, even in a half-hour episode.

SCORING:

+9: Still a great episode but is lacking in a point or two

-1: Side plot has a few funny moments but not enough to make up for how much time it steals from a much more interesting main plotline

+1: I do appreciate when the side plot comes together with the main plot, otherwise it feels kinda pointless
