Harley Quinn: Here's How Season 4 Brings in Talia al Ghul

Harley Quinn's fourth season sees longtime DC favorite Talia al Ghul return to Gotham.

The first three episodes of Harley Quinn's fourth season are now streaming on Max, and they feature the return of many fan-favorite characters in addition to some first-timers who are straight out of DC Comics. The second episode of the new season, "B.I.T.C.H," sees Poison Ivy meeting Talia al Ghul, who is being voiced by Aline Elasmar. The duo connects at a luncheon for women in powerful business positions, and they hit it off immediately. Talia gives Ivy some great advice on how to deal with Joker, who is now the mayor of Gotham. However, things get messy when Ivy learns why Talia has returned to Gotham. 

At the end of last season, Bruce Wayne was sent to jail, which promoted Harley to join the Bat-Family. While Harley is training at Wayne Manor, Talia shows up and reveals she's there to take over Wayne Enterprises while Bruce is in jail. Turns out, he left her in charge due to their romantic past. While Harley doesn't mind the change in regime, Batgirl and Nightwing are both annoyed by Talia's presence. Talia is also confirmed to be Robin's mother, and it's clear she hasn't seen him since he was a baby. In fact, she later tries to buy him a pacifier, asking a store clerk which type is better for a 12-year-old. While Talia may be a surprise to the Bat-Family, she is a bigger problem for Ivy...

One of Ivy's first plans as the new leader of the Legion of Doom is to replace all of Gotham's male trees with female trees, which will end allergies and force Wayne Enterprises' pharmaceutical division out of business. Ivy is initially conflicted when she learns her new friend is in charge but goes ahead with the plan anyway. Talia confronts Ivy, and while she's mad that her business has been tanked, she's also excited to finally have a worthy adversary.
