Review by Kendra Hale
“L.O.D.R.S.V.P.” starts with Harley and the crew up to shenanigans again. This time they’re stealing Atlantean jewels from Aquaman. First thing? Horrible puns… such horrible puns. However, Harley and the gang are successful, thanks to kelp from Ivy. This successful venture gets them an invitation to visit the Legion Of Doom, which is what Harley’s been waiting for. My last review can be found here. All set? Let’s go!
Reluctantly Ivy goes along with Harley and the gang to the Legion, where they’re treated to a tour by Scarecrow, voiced by Rahul Kohli, who hones in on the crews’ desires. Everything seems to be too good to be true, expect for Ivy, who’s rightly suspicious of the whole thing. She corners Lex, voiced by Giancarlo Esposito, who drops a truth bomb that could drive a wedge between Harley and Ivy.
The revelation doesn’t sit well with Ivy, but what is she to do? Harley’s her best friend and this has been shown brilliantly throughout the whole series. L.O.D.R.S.V.P begs the question, what can happen when there’s a break between two besties? We also see Harls on her own dealing with the League member she was most anxious about… Joker
“L.O.D.R.S.V.P.” gives us an overlapping story instead of an all-in-one. Harley Quinn has given us many important storylines, but this one sets up to one of the most important so far, in my opinion. What will Harley do, now that she has what she has worked so hard for? Is the Legion Of Doom really all she has wanted for herself and her crew? Or, should she be far more careful of what she wishes for?

Review by Steve J. Ray
This show is barking mad... and I love it. We left last week's episode on a cliffhanger, with the Decreator - a huge disembodied eyeball - high in the sky, disintegrating everything that met its gaze. Had our band of misfits failed, was Cloverton and the world doomed? Again? It's Snow JokeWith Jane and Cliff stranded in a magical realm inside a snow-globe (yes, you read that right) Larry, Cyborg, Rita and Kipling (guest star, Mark Sheppard) are left in a world that is slowly being, well... de-created.
Arch villain Mr. Nobody still has the Chief in his clutches, but how can his plans for world domination succeed, if there's no world left to dominate? Can this evil, bonkers, jigsaw-puzzle of a man put his …
