[Episode 3 Spoilers] Is John playing everyone to come out on top?
What do you think? Personally, I don't think he's nearly as clueless or benign as he sometimes acts. I think there's more of the Joker we know from other media in there than we've seen outright. Episode 3 in particular gave me this impression. For how loyal and in love John claims to be with Harley, it didn't take too much for him to agree to steal her laptop for Bruce. Except...no. He planned to give it to Batman instead.
I also wonder if there's something to him going through the same motions he did with Bruce with Batman (the handshake and the picture). What if he's actively trying to compare?
