Remember that scene in ‘Batman Returns’ when The Penguin (Danny DeVito) is eating fish, resulting in a fish blood and innards smeared across his face?

'Arrow' fans were thrown a 'Dark Knight' curve ball when famed Batman villain Harley Quinn made a brief appearance (well, at least her voice did) in the "Suicide Squad" episode, which saw folks like Bronze Tiger and Deadshot teaming up at the government's behest.
