Episode 8 – “L.O.D.R.S.V.P”
Harley & crew of King Shark, Clayface and Dr. Psycho rob the Atlantian jewels only to have Aquaman appear and try and foil their thieving plot.
Aquaman almost succeeds in getting the jewels back, only to have the arrival of Poison Ivy ensnare him in poisonous kelp (“Did somebody ask for kelp?” — lol!).
The successful heist draws an invite from the Legion Of Doom (L.O.D) and Harley’s crew. Harley is ecstatic and they visit the L.O.D lair in hopes of Harley getting invited.
You’ll have to watch the episode to see if Harley and her crew make it into L.O.D officially or this is just another tease, whether or not there is an advance in the Kite Man and Ivy subplot, if Aquaman reclaims the stolen jewels and more in this 22 minutes of adult animated goodness.
This episode introduces a couple of new conflicts involving the main characters. With next week being episode #9, we’re closing in on the third act of the first season. The stakes are appropriately getting raised.
This episode wasn’t as funny as some of the others, sort of a middle of the road view for me. Enjoyable and entertaining, yes, but likely not to be in the top 5 episodes by the end of the first season. I do like the twisted Aquaman portrayal.
