(Comic Canon only) Clayface, as Steph, called up Barbara Gordon to see if she had any intel on Harley and Ivy. King Shark asked Steph what Barbara Gordon was saying on the phone. Steph countered she was going to lose, not her then asked what was new. Barbara Gordon concluded he gave up on chasing them since they were in Detroit but noted they looked so cute together. Steph was confused. She clarified she saw them on TV and lied her father was calling her then hung up. King advised Steph to come clean she was really Clayface unless a vacation to Arkham Asylum was preferred. Steph didn't believe she would do that to her since they were besties. Steph shifted back to Clayface and admitted it was nice having someone who didn't see him as a villain, who's a friend that cares and doesn't make fun of him. King understood but pointed out he was instead being a bestie that's been tricking her for information on Harley and Ivy. He implored Clayface to tell her the truth before it went too far.

Doctor Psycho vented his frustrations with his son at Noonan's. He worried he would end up a freak like his mother, Giganta. Joker told him kids were the worst and listed off the things they needed. He found it hard since he spent the majority of his adult life making sure things died. Psycho could relate. Joker asserted he was in it for the long haul with Bethany but mused a manual for fatherhood would be nice. Psycho speculated he was a bad father. King apologized for minimizing his anguish and making it about him then reckoned he would make a great father. Joker questioned how he would know since he had no children. Psycho announced happy hour was over. Joker brought up the fact to King that he didn't even talk to Tabitha about children yet and had no place to talk. King thought his generally agreeable demeanor combined with his fierce protectiveness and penchant for doting on those he loved strongly suggested he would be an excellent father. Joker suggested he have some shark babies first before he flaps his jaws about fatherhood.

King warned he didn't have to qualify them as "shark" babies. Suddenly, a portal appeared outside Noonan's and sucked the trio up. They were trapped in nightmares based on horror movies. They found themselves in a crazed killer's cabin. King commented it bordered on copyright infringement. Joker noticed a touching tribute to a mother and father. King thought that was wishful thinking. Joker retorted he recognized a child's tribute because he had children, to King's chagrin. King pointed out the killer could be a woman. Psycho told them to shut up. The killer burst in with a chainsaw and chopped King's fin off. They were transported to another room in pitch black darkness. King wondered if it was Shark Heaven. Joker grumbled he could say "Shark" but King said that wasn't the same thing. Psycho told them to shut up. They realized they were strapped to chairs. The lights turned on and there were devices above them designed to decapitate. King reckoned someone saw one too many scary movies.

Psycho realized his son was doing this and Herman Psycho appeared and admitted he developed metahuman powers but thought they were stupid. King suggested they focused on escaping from having their heads popped open like meat balloons. Psycho placed a hand on his son's arm and concentrated. King and Joker ended up in a different nightmare than them. It was loosely based on Squid Games. King admitted he was ready to have the talk with Tabitha about having children but he would limit their screen time based on current events. Joker's cold heart was armed. The buzzer went off and they fought. Eventually, Psycho returned them to reality. King and Tabitha sat in the audience for the live taping of the first episode of Tawny Talks. They were both excited. During the Batgirl interview, King Shark found the segment boring but liked Clayface's idea to turn into whoever Calculator named was Batgirl. He perked up. During Clayface's segment, he was accused of abandoning both Annie and the Arm. King Shark tried to explain they were on the run from the police after a failed heist and his creation was an accident but Tabitha told him to sit back down. Arm took offense to King calling them accidents. Annie launched Arm and he punched King then yanked his tongue.

King Shark and Clayface were aghast when Harley passed on band practice with them for The Blackened Pains of Zeerathan. Clayface wondered if they were even a crew anymore. Harley assured them they were but they were suspicious with how unusual she was acting. Clayface and King Shark followed Harley Quinn on foot. Clayface admitted he was still upset he did not get the spotlight at the premiere of A Hard Wayne's Gonna Fall and wanted a legion of fans. A woman got into it with Clayface over his drama and attacked him with one of her crutches. He took offense at being called "Mudboy" and wondered why nobody knew who he was. King tried to comfort him and also suggest a therapist in vain. Clayface admitted King Shark was right about the stakeout being terrible. Marabunta rushed past them. King yelled in anger at her. They were surprised to run into Harley. She lied she was just working on some cardio like Riddler once suggested. Clayface decided he would impersonate Lady Marabunta to get Harley to chase him. King thought it would easier if they just asked her to tell them the truth but Clayface proceeded with his plan. King opted to support him from home.

Ivy tried to brush Frank off but he brought up how she was kept meeting up with her ex-girlfriend a secret from Harley. King Shark returned home and revealed Harley was keeping a secret from Ivy, too. Frank could not wait for the drama to come. Harley returned to the penthouse to find Ivy, King Shark, and Frank waiting up. King alluded to her cover story and remarked her calves looked good. Ivy mistook it as another Sharkley adventure and wanted to go on one next time but Frank refused to schedule it until he got paid. He then advised Ivy and King to take acting classes. After an incident at Blackgate Penitentiary, Harley and Ivy told King Shark, Clayface, Sy Borgman, and Frank The Plant about the latter' activities as an anti-hero with Batman's team. King Shark didn't think associating with Harley would do any good with his standing in the villain community. He quit the team. Ivy hoped they could all remain friends and support Harley. Clayface and King Shark left to process the news.
