  • Shows us the transformation of the tortured Harvey Dent into Two-Face.

    We have seen Harvey Dent in several previous episodes of "Batman," but fans of the comic book know it was all leading up to this episode, and his transformation into Two-Face was definitely dramatic. This is perhaps one of the saddest episodes of the series’ run, with Batman’s reaction to Dent’s transformation an especially sad moment. This episode also introduces the crime lord Rupert Thorne, who would become a recurring character throughout the series. Using psychology, and more specifically dissociative identity disorder, the show provides us with an entertaining and halfway plausible explanation for Two-Face’s origin. This is one of the most memorable episodes of the series. Well written and well animated.
