It finally happened! The latest episode of DC Universe's Harley Quinn featured the long-awaited first kiss between Harley and Poison Ivy. Last night, ComicBook hosted a Quarantine Watch Party of the two most recent episodes, and we learned a lot of behind-the-scenes info from the show's executive producers. While there were a lot of fun tweets about the new episode circulating Twitter yesterday, no moment received the same amount of attention as the big kiss. While it was no secret that a romance between the characters was coming, the kiss managed to feel like a well-earned surprise. This is proven by the reactions from fans on Twitter.
Recently, the series' showrunners talked about the hopeful couple and shared their vision of transforming the characters from best friends to lovers. "We tried to play the reality of how messy, uncomfortable, and awkward it would be to figure out that you're in love with your best friend. It's messy, it takes a while, and it's not smooth at all. And there are definitely a lot of two steps forward, one step back kind of thing going on," Justin Halpern explained. You can check out the epic first kiss in the tweet below:

So Much Love
Ivy loves Harley soooo much... she had risked her life, saved her ass innumerable times, never ever left her behind, even when doing so would have been easy... 😭♥️#Harlivy💋 #HarleyQuinn #PoisonIvy pic.twitter.com/7xDzBmkiWz— Eden Singer (@edensinger) May 15, 2020
okay but the way harley and ivy hold each other is so desperate, tender and full of emotions. Their hands just naturally find their way to make the embrace more strong...I'll cry again. The body language speaks for itself. Harlivy was something else since episode 1. #HarleyQuinn pic.twitter.com/zvo6C9z6HG— 𝙩𝙖𝙢𝙞🦋#𝙍𝙚𝙣𝙚𝙬𝙃𝙖𝙧𝙡𝙚𝙮𝙌𝙪𝙞𝙣𝙣 (@tamaraWEH) May 16, 2020
