For a web production that is thematically referencing the take of Creator/ChristopherNolan on [[Film/TheDarkKnightSaga a realistic Batman mythos]], WebVideo/TheJokerBlogs does [[ParanoiaFuel a great and very creepy]] job at portraying the incarcerated Joker in [[NightmareFuel a very disturbing light]]....and not only often making him [[UpToEleven even more disturbing than usual]], but showing [[HannibalLecture the]] [[HeWhoFightsMonsters impact]] he has on quite a few other prominent characters.

Added DiffLines:

** Hell, the whole scene itself is nerve-wracking and scary because you have no idea what the Joker is gonna do through most of it.


** The ending of S2E1 is equally terrifying. "You realize, of course, that this means war!" Also a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for the Joker.

** Batman appearing in general. Up until then, Joker had been completely calm and calculating throughout his whole murder spree... [[LightsOutSomebodyDies but the second the lights in the church go out]], [[OhCrap Joker knows he's screwed]].

Added DiffLines:

*** Thus far, many viewers have, via the video's comments section, proclaimed the episode (effectively "Harley's awakening") to be the absolute best of the entire series.


*** At 3:03 in the episode, something rather chilling, upon multiple viewings: [[spoiler:the first ever close up shot of the new, Nolan-esque re-imagining of Harley Quinn. Between the room's shadowy lightning, background music momentarily giving a distant, high-pitched tone reminiscent of the "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aSzr119dYJs sound of anarchy]]" track from the movie, and a somehow [[EmptyEyes vacant-yet-calculating expression]] fleetingly (before reverting to "normal") on her face not dissimilar to those commonly reported in RealLife [[http://www.amazon.com/Without-Conscience-Disturbing-World-Psychopaths/dp/1572304510/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8 clinical analyses of psychopathy]], gone is the comparatively harmless, family-friendly 'crazed pixie' of the [[BatmanTheAnimatedSeries animated series]] where the character got her start. In her place? ...[[UncannyValleyGirl It's hard to say yet]], really.]]

*** The gory surgery scene for Mrs. Arkham is bad enough, but at the end of the scene, [[spoiler: Dr. Elliot tells Arkham that they need pressure on the left ventricle. Before anything else can happen though, a gun is suddenly placed onto Mrs. Arkham's new heart and the camera to pans up to reveal the gun's owner as none other than the Joker. The episode then ends with a creepy hello from the clown, a bang, and a flatline.]]

** Joker continues his twisted story of the Three Little Pigs with the guard and after tricking the guard into thinking he knew where the Joker is. The Joker ends up closing the door onto the guard's hand and breaks three fingers off. He then uses one of the fingers to, of course, smear the bloodly finger across his face to finish his smile.

*** And prior to this, [[spoiler: Pearl was the only person to be on the receiving end of one of Joker's scar speeches, start to finish, and survive. And the look in Pearl's eyes as Jeremiah has the gun to her head shows she's fully aware she used up the last of her luck on the Joker.]]

** Not to mention [[spoiler: Scarecrow [[JumpScare sneaking up on Harleen]] and gassing her during Dr. Arkham's announcement.]]

Added DiffLines:

** And then when Joker goes to leave the car with Arkham and Pearl handcuffed, they begin screaming for help, only for Joker to mock them and point out that they're in [[Film/BatmanBegins the Narrows]], which aside from them, is completely desolate.
