  • Two-Face Vs Rupert Thorne Vs Batman What better can you get?

    As mostly of all the 2 part episodes, this one do not begins right after the other one ends. Two-Face is now an almost expiernced criminal decided to take down Rupert Thorne. Grace was a nice character but a little annoying. This episode is the only one that we see an emotional side of Two-Face....and I'm sure...if this show were 100 darker, Grace would have died and Two Face would become a super angry criminal. That would have been so cool. Finally...well I said most of what I think about this episode in the review of part 1...but well, a classic episode and one of my favorites that I can't get tired of watchingmoreless
  • Follows up from part one

    This is the second part of the "Two-Face" two parter, it follows up from part one as we finaly get to see Two-Face as an official criminal, we get to see at how depressed Bruce was after what had happened to Harvey, and how obsessed he was with trying to save him as we see about a dozen phsycology books on his desk. It was also interesting to see Bruce's dream and find that he actualy blames himself for, not only what happened to Harvey, but what happened to his parents as well. A highpoint in the seriesmoreless
  • Part Two! Hooray!

    Harvey Dent has become Two-Face. This accident has caused his 'Big Bad Harv' persona to intensify and now he is after Rupert Thorne once again. However, complicating matters is Batman himself, who wants to help what was once his friend and Harvey's love for his fiance.

    This was a great follow-up to the first part. I actually did enjoy the ay Two-Face was portrayed here. He wasn't really a villain here, he was just a poor soul trying to seek solace. Once again, his duality is shown in great effect and it did lead to some great moments, such as when Batman is confronting him and reminds him of his love. It's a shame that most portrayals of Two-Face eschew the duality and show him with one personality, though (even some later episodes of this show have him falling into this trap.)

    There was one scene I particulary enjoyed; Batman's nightmare. He's chasing Harvey Dent, trying to help him; but Harvey doesn't want Batman's help. Harvey turns into Two-face and viciously slanders Batman until he falls and screams 'Why didn't you save me?' Then Batman comes face to face with his parents dying under a streetlight, who ask him 'Why didn't you save us?'

    This is why Batman is such a great hero; he actually feels guilt.

    Both Part 1 and Part 2 were extremely enjoyable and a must watch for every TAS fan.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Whenever Two-Face makes a decision by flipping his coin, when the marred side is up he acts as Two-Face, but when the clean side is up he acts as Harvey would act.

    • When Two-Face is putting the stolen cash in his wallet, we see a card on the right side of his wallet. The name on the card is TWOFACE. What kind of company lets people get cards with names other than legal names? Response: One could assume that he had it made to fit his new persona. He's become a criminal and certainly could have found someone to forge one.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Bruce: So, what are you dreaming tonight, Harvey? Peaceful dreams? Nightmares? Maybe both at once. Sleep well, my friend. Where ever you are, whatever you've become, I will save you. I swear.

    • Rupert Thorne: (to Two-Face) At last we meet. Face to face... to face.

    • Rupert Thorne: Spread the word: I'm putting on a contract. One million... No... Make it two million. A million dollars a face to the man who brings me Two Face.

  • NOTES (10)


    • Two Face: Don't bother adjusting your TV set for the next five minutes I am in control.

      This is an allusion to the Outer Limits 1963 or 1995 which featured the phrase "Do not try to adjust your Television set, We are in control."
