 Joker, was abusive and put Harley in the hospital multiple times.


I  believe, however, that he did love her. He beat her and pushed her away because, he didn't want to.  He didn't want to be in love and go through that all again. Didn't want to believe that he could feel, that would mean he had an understanding of right and wrong he'd been denying for so long. He  blamed her for "making" him fall in love.  A quote  from Mark Hamill, "Expressing emotion in any way that's real and meaningful is Alien to the Joker, but he's learning those parts of himself, however unconsciously, through Harley."

Harley loves Joker because,  she knows he loves her and needs her.  Arleen Sorkin once said, "Everyone else sees the Joker laugh, only Harley has ever seen him cry. It's the only reason she stays with him."  She has left him on multiple occasions had other lovers and relationships, but always seems to go back. I Hope someday she leaves him for good.

I think they both really love each other and were meant to find each other, but not last forever in a sense. I think she should leave him and never come back. She has to let him see what he lost and never getting back. She doesn't need him anymore. She's crazier than Joker for a reason, she chose it, for love.

She shouldn't kill him in the end, his end, either. That's one of the things he wanted was to push her to that point, or beyond that point  if you understand. She should always love him, but cease to be in love with him. There should be a point where she explains to Joker what happened like he's begging her to come back and tell's him she's happy, with whomever she may be with at this point, and done playing his games. Explain to him everything about why because, then he'll understand she'll always love him, but doesn't need (want?) him anymore. Maybe she could even mention their secret daughter if she's all grown up and stuff or not if Harley's too worried about what he might to to corrupt the little girl.

She should be there in the end when he dies, he shouldn't be killed by batman or anyone because, that would only cause Harley to feel a need for revenge that shouldn't exist. HE should be his own downfall, whether by accident or on purpose, but I think Harley should be the first to see it. She should be there one for the necessary closure, and two for proof that no one else is guilty. She needs this for more than just herself, but for everyone. I think Joker needs to cause his own death because, it makes sense if you think about it he created his empire and he should be why it crashes, for not letting himself be happy and for losing the only person who truly understood him for who he was.

This is all based off of my own opinion and of course versions of Joker that are the most realistic and show us just how complex he really is, how his love for Harley is why he tries so hard to hate her. One of my other favorite quotes to their relationship is:

" He loves her as much as he can. He loves her in his way."- Paul Dini
