Part 2 of Two-Face was first broadcasted on September 28, 1992 with a script by Randy Rogel and directed by Kevin Alteri.

Harvey Dent, now calling himself Two-Face, resurfaces and starts robbing Rupert Thorne’s illegal businesses, preparing for a final confrontation with the crime boss, and Batman must stop his former friend before he and Thorne kill each other.

I will say right at the top that I do not think this is as strong of an episode as part one and that is one of the big things I can say about Batman: The Animated Series that is not great is that with most of the two parters, one half of the episodes are usually are stronger than the other half and very rarely do you get a two part episode that’s good all the way around, there’s a couple of them but not a lot of them are great all the way through.

But let’s talk about the positives of this second half, I think it started off really strong with the scene where Bruce has a nightmare about not being able to save his friend and then it ends with his parents asking him “why couldn’t you save us, son?” I mean, that’s an intense and chilling way to start off an episode, it’s also kind of a parable to the opening of the first part where it starts with Harvey having a nightmare about his greatest fear, his split personality taking over his persona.

The story itself is decent but not quite as strong or as intense as the first part was and there’s a little more predictability into what happens in the episode than there was in the first half.

But still, the voice work is still great, the animation is still really good, the action scenes are still very well done, there’s good drama, there’s decent storytelling, my overall feeling with this episode is that it’s still really enjoyable but it’s not up to the caliber level that the first part set up. Certainly not a bad episode by any means but not anywhere near as strong as the first part was.
