EPISODE ONE (12/13/14)

SUMMARY:  On the 55th day of the trial of the Joker for repeated attacks on Gotham, he is freed on a technicality due to lack of testimony from the Batman. The Joker tells reporter Barnabas Bixby that Batman is not an urban legend because he's had his teeth knocked out by Batman multiple times and has the dental records to prove it. As he leaves to prepare for the opening night of his new nightclub, the Ha-Hacienda, the creepy Junior, son of the Joker and Harley Quinn, stalks Barnabas, intending to kill him.  Meanwhile, at the Ha-Hacienda, Harley Quinn, tired of the Joker neglecting and devaluing her, announces that she's leaving him to make it on her own.  But after a duet on "Wrecking Ball," the Joker claims to have realized just how much he needs her; he'd die without her in his little family.  Harley is overjoyed, and leaves to start preparing for the club's debut.  As the Joker's goons tell him that was really sweet, the Joker - with a smile, as always - suddenly shoots them both dead.  As he cackles insanely, he announces that it's time to book an opening act for the club...
