Batman: The Animated Series 25th Anniversary #61: The Demon’s Quest, Part 2

The Demon’s Quest, Part 2 was first broadcasted on May 4, 1993 with a script by Len Wein from a story by Wein and Dennis O’Neill and directed by Kevin Alteri.

After freeing Talia from her father’s clutches and escaping from an avalanche, Batman and Robin follow the only clue they have – the word ‘Orpheus’. After discovering that ‘Orpheus’ is Ra’s private satellite that will orbit over the Sahara, the duo travel to the Demon’s desert stronghold. There, Batman learns that the satellite is actually a weapon which will explosively destroy all the Lazarus Pits simultaneously throughout the world, destroying all the life that exists.

This is the final two parter in the original Batman: The Animated Series run and boy, does it go out with a bang.

Batman fighting Ra’s Al Guhl in this episode leads to some of the more epic and action packed animation the show has ever done and the fight scenes in this episode are top notch, this is TMS doing the animation once again for the series and they really let it come together as well as you could expect.

The music by Harvey Cohen works really well in this episode and fits the tone of the entire episode very well.

Part 2 of The Demon’s Quest does a great job of concluding the story set up in the previous episode to make this the most epic adventure Batman & Robin had to go through up to this point and it’s one of the few perfect two parters the show has done and a good way to end the two parters the show would do in this incarnation.
