Review by Kendra Hale
Congratulations! You’re Doomed
“A Seat At The Table” is here and it gives us what Harley wanted most. As a member of the Legion Of Doom, Harley faces the one person who can take her down… Joker. The thing is, he isn’t acting as she expected and this is throwing her off her game. With her crew relying on her help, as well as Ivy expecting her to keep her word… a lot rides on her shoulders this episode. Whether she will she make the right choices remains to be seen.
Has Harley found herself truly alone? “A Seat At The Table” truly gives viewers a heady mix of both serious and hilarious. Bane, voiced by James Adomian, gives us some really great moments with his vendetta against Todd, the cashier at a local smoothie bar. It’s hard not to feel bad for Harley in this one as even Batman takes pity on her. The Harley/ Joker battle has been building, of course in other mediums, through this season – with Harley fighting tooth and nail for him to see her as an equal – it remains to be seen if she’ll be able to stand strong on the rebound of her actions.
This finale has been one of the best parts of the whole series because it’s delivered on all the moments and stories that led up to it. Yes, there have been jokes and puns, but there have also been relatable moments, which is what has always been the main draw for Harley Quinn herself, and all her supporting characters. Everything has been in sync and has unfolded with more impact, episode by episode.
Did you enjoy “A Seat At The Table” as much as I did? Leave your predictions for the finale or favorite moments in the comments below and we’ll see you next episode!

"Batman Universe #4"
Writer: Brian Michael Bendis Artist: Nick Derington Color Artist: Dave Stewart Letterers: Josh Reed and Tom NapolitanoReview by Steve J. Ray Batman Universe #4 feels like the ultimate tribute to Bat-Lash, Jonah Hex, and all the other wonderful DC Comics western characters, from back in the day. It’s also the Back To The Future tribute I never knew I needed. I love this silly, fun, guest star-packed, universe hopping, time-jumping craziness sooooo much. From Faberge eggs to fantastic fashion choices, this issue delivers. Both Hal Jordan and Bruce Wayne look great in clothes from the old west… in fact, this could be one of the coolest Batman looks ever! Nick Derington and Dave Stewart must have had a great time designing and coloring those threads. There are no lantern or bat symbols to be seen anywhere, but you just know that we’re looking at Hal Jordan and Batman.
