The collection exhibits Ivy and Harley’s first assembly and it’s much like canon; Ivy was an inmate at Arkham Asylum first and Dr. Quinn got here in as a younger, optimistic psychiatrist.

Season 2 confirmed extra of Ivy’s first assembly with Harley, and the way she was actually hostile towards her, as she is with everybody. Harley provides her a flower, which Ivy might simply use to flee and even kill Harley. But Harley exhibits that she’s trusting Ivy, which is the primary act of kindness the inexperienced eco-terrorist has seen. 

So on Twitter, a fan requested showrunner Patrick Schumacker if the flower Ivy has all through the collection is similar one. And it’s.

To be clear, the flower truly simply finally ends up being one thing Ivy pulls out of her jacket in one other episode, years after Harley gave it to her in Arkham. Schumacker adopted up and defined that due to “continuity” points with Ivy having earrings, it was modified to that little private merchandise. But nonetheless, it seemed the identical, and with this affirmation, it’s an endearing tidbit to know Ivy saved the flower together with her all this time.

In Season 1, they’re finest associates who look after one another. Harley has to essentially dig into her selfishness and impulsive nature that generally has her select the Joker over her associates, together with Ivy. But by the tip of that season, she realizes that Ivy and her crew are a very powerful issues to her. Along with selecting herself, at the beginning. 

By Season 2, the 2 besties don’t know their emotions are rising but, however after experiencing Mr. Freeze’s loving sacrifice for his spouse and making her personal sacrifice for Ivy at Bane’s pit, it clicked. And although it took Ivy longer to belief Harley together with her coronary heart, the 2 drove off collectively on the finish of the season. 

Season Three was confirmed and can concentrate on holding these two a pair

Going into Season 3, although, followers don’t have to fret about Harlivy taking any regressing steps. While Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy have been companions because the ‘90s when Harley was first launched in Batman: The Animated Series, there have solely been a handful of instances within the comics that they’re formally a pair. It’s irritating for followers, however Schumacker guarantees this collection will do it otherwise. 

“If we’re lucky enough to get a Season 3… we’re not going to walk it back. They’re a couple,” Schumacker instructed Syfy Wire in June. “Any stakes that we want to build into the season moving forward are not going to involve [the question of] ‘Will they be able to stay in a relationship?’ They’re going to be a couple.”

Justin Halpern, the opposite showrunner, acknowledged that they don’t need the 2 to really feel just like the “stakes are [whether] Harley and Ivy stay together.” There will, in fact, be battle and obstacles, however they’ll face them as girlfriends. 

“It’s much more interesting to do a show about how you navigate these very different personalities being in a relationship.”
