On Saturday, May 30th, at 3:22 PM, I I tuned in on YouTube and on my TV as millions of people watched live as SpaceX’s Falcon 9 launched at Cape Canaveral, bound for the International Space Station. It’s the first time since 2011 that Americans have launched from our own soil. And if all goes well, it’s the first step to returning to the Moon by the middle of this decade.
So, it may be because I’ve been really busy now that I’m back at work, but I just couldn’t get into this week’s episode of Harley Quinn. Last week, we saw Harley Quinn try to bury her feelings for Ivy by doubling down on being a villain. However, that ended as well as I thought. Steven Universe Future taught me that it’s not healthy to bury your emotions in denial. Just when Harley’s about to confess to Ivy, though, she sees how happy she is Kite Man and can’t go through with it. As a result, this episode sees Harley try to pull the “I want my beloved to be happy” trope and support Ivy. But Star vs. The Forces of Evil also taught me that bottling up your feelings can lead to heartache.
