Very good episode. One of my favorites so far, & as Bat Dan said i like Batgirl& what she brings to the show. Poison Ivy is now (to me) an A list villian with Pierra Copolla's realistic & fantastic rendition of Ivy. The plot i feared would be mundain, but i was surprized with it. It was the usual Ivy out for revenge/ Ivy+Plants+Gotham=Plant City. But I loved it. & The way she replaced the citizens with plant people was very inventive. Instead of kidnapping them she sent them evil flowers that attach themselves to their faces via Alien style. & then put them in pod thingies. The Batman/ Evil Plant Batman fight was great. & Batgirl ran over Evil Plant Batgirl with a lawnmower! ;D ;D ;D & The inclusion of whom we think is the Penguin was great. Overall a great episode. A 4.5 out of 5

Good episode. I liked how Batman puched out that plant florist. It kind of reminded me of a Simpsons Halloween show, where everyone in town was becoming zombies and Homer shot Flanders, and he was like "He was a zombie?" Was Penguin really needed in this episode? I don't think so. Batgirl was alright. But I think some of these episodes need a better ending.

I missed this episode. Could someone give a full-spoiler filled rundown of what happened!
- Mayor Grange is planning on demolishing Gotham Park. He then recieves a flower that attacks him (Alien Style).
- Grange has a conference saying he will not demolish the park and then starts a new act calling it "Greening Up Gotham"
- Commisioner Gordon then recieves a flower.
- Penguin steals some parts making a rain-making machine. Batman and him battle and Penguin turns into a pile of mulch.
- Gordon and the police arrive and attempt to arrest Batman for crushing the same kind of plants. He escapes.
- Alfred recieves another plant and before it attacks him, a throws it into a fire place.
- The Gordon Clone shows up at home and Barbara already knows it's not him. He tries to give her a plant, and she fights back. Gordon then turns green and attacks Barbara. Batman shows up to finish the job. Barbara changes into Batgirl.
-They go to the flower shop where the flowers keeps coming from. Batman punches out the old florist(don't worry, she was a plant clone), and they find a secret passage, where they find many people inside pods. Poison Ivy then shows up and captures them. Ivy then goes to the surface to work on the rain machine.
-The Batwave helps wake Batman up and he escapes and cuts Gordon and Batgirl out. Gordon gets the rest.
-Batman and Batgirl then battle their plant clones. Batman blows his up. Batgirl runs hers over with a lawn mower.
-Ivy starts the machine, and Batman then injects it with weed killer. All the plant people and her plants are killed. And Ivy said "My babies!" finally.
It was a good episode /\/\att. Too bad it won't be shown this Friday. Replace Batman with Megaman huh? Bastards.
I really liked this episode. Changing the setting quite a bit helps the show move really well (mayor's office, park, gordon's residence, city hall, batcave, Ivy's hideout, etc...) That always helps add a "mini epic" feel (if you will allow me the term) to a show that is basically around 20-22 minutes. Nice work.
Pierra has somewhat of a "dreamy" type of voice, and I think it works well for Ivy. Catwoman and Ivy both have their own little mystique that help add an extra dimension to the show.
I was rolling when he punched the florist. I am not sure if it is because I didn't watch it until 1:30 a.m. here, but that took me completely off guard.
I miss Yin. I hope that Gordon does not serve as the single link to the police force.
i enjoyed watching this episode. it reminded me of House & Garden, which is fine, same basic premise of Ivy replicating people with plants but this plot was of a grander scale. this is also the first episode where i didnt mind Batgirl. it actually seemed like a team in this episode. i also didnt mind seeing Penguin, yet again, due to the fact that he was just a small cog in the overall machine. i looked at it as Ivy using him to throw Bats off the trail of the real mastermind, her. i also liked how Ivy really stepped out as a dangerous villain in this one, and also how they showed the tragedy. i liked very much the ending scene where she just kind of slumped there in the rain dwelling in the fact that not only was her plan foiled, but her plants were dead.

(WAVES ARMS WILDLY IN AIR) [glow=red,2,300]DOES ANYONE ELSE HERE CARE ABOUT THE AMAZING WAY IVY SCREAMED :"MY BABIES!" ? HUH, CAUSE THAT WAS AWESOME, AWESOME! & I do agree with your WB + MEGAMAN - Batman= Bastards[/glow]
[shadow=purple,left,300]I really enjoyed this episode. I think the job the crew has done with Ivy is perfect. The episode featured an interesting plot combined with cool action and some bits of dark humor. Piera does a great job voicing Ivy. Plus, it seems as if Batgirl is finding her place on the series (huge improvement over her previous appearances in RPM and Brawn).
Only a couple of things didn't add up. I know I could have done without the Iodine rain plot. Not only did it seem a bit far fetched, but there has to have been a better way for Ivy's master plan to come full circle. Either way, it was still a great ep.

wouldnt that make an interesting grande finale? well, like, they JUST added batgirl, and it would just be cheesy if they brought forward Robin before maybe late season4* or 5* just think. when the last episode shows, it will end with a whole new bat family, there newest member being robin of course...
I hate to say it, but Batgirl has sort of grown on me, over the last few weeks. But I still think they should have Robin on the show at some point though.
I don't have anything against Robin, but I think it would be good for them to run with just Batman & Batgirl for a little while. Of course they could bring in Yin, but she wouldn't be a new character that would need an intro.
Have their been any other incarnations of batman that have brought batgirl into the picture before Robin?
(Check my history, please) Batman and Robin work together in detective comics Batman and Robin appear in 60s TV series. Batgirl I (Barb) added to TV series & comics.
90s movies: Batman Forever (Enter Robin) Batman & Robin (Enter Batgirl)
90s cartoons: Robin eventually joins Batman in animated series (1992) Batgirl brought into 90s cartoon (when did this happen?)
Check me. But my point (again) is that I think this is the first time Batgirl has sidekicked with Batman without Robin even having been introduced yet.
I think "The Batman" is working great as is with the Dynamic "Bat-Duo."
I finally sat down and watched this one today. I can't believe I waited so long. This is my favorite one from season 3. It kind of had a Matrix feel to it. None stop action and my favorite scene was when Batman knocked out the woman at the Flower Shop.

When he knocked out the lady in the flower shop I actually had the same thought as Batgirl,"You did know she was a plant right?" Although I did laugh allot through that episode especially when Penguin was leaping through the field of flowers. I give the episode a 9 out of 10.
