Events are really picking up steam as so many plotlines crash into each other in this episode. There are questions about allegiance, honesty, the future, and the past, as characters deal with some very wrenching discoveries on many fronts.
The entertaining misfits that make up the Legends of Tomorrow are a lot of fun to watch. They’re not exactly a serious show, breaking the fourth wall at random, making all sorts of in-jokes, yet still managing to save the world, history, or time itself on occasion.
The Legends have found their groove of entertaining silliness, and this episode is crammed full of that. It’s also the directorial debut of Marc Guggenheim, long-time producer for Arrow and the Legends themselves.
Nothing goes to plan, even by Legends standards, and a lot of weirdness happens as they try, borrowing a phrase, “To put right what once went wrong.” They give a nice nod to a classic sci fi novel (and less classic movie) with the title “I Am Legends.”
The Covid-shortened season of Supergirl comes to an end with episode 19 out of what was supposed to be 22. Like Flash and Batwoman, they were forced to end production early (although unlike those shows, the whole cast is coming back as far as we know), and improvise a finale out of what they had.
just after the season wrapped, there was the surprising announcement that Ruby Rose, Kate Kane/Batwoman, would not be returning for season two, a very rare case of the star of a show leaving, and rarer still that now, weeks later, there’s still no real explanation about what led to her decision.
The Legends have finally got all the pieces of the Loom of Fate, so everything should be good, right? Well, of course not.
Some things even superheroes are powerless to stop. In this case, the coronavirus has brought season six to an early end. “Success is Assured” is episode 19 out of what was supposed to be 22, but they couldn’t finish filming. This has changed the pace of the impromptu finale, the nature of the cliffhanger, and…
Events have been building to a head since the Crisis rolled through and changed the world and people’s memories. Lex is nearly unassailable, Leviathan has tentacles everywhere, and Brainy convinced himself to work for one of the nastiest villains on the planet.
Things have been getting more and more complicated, especially last episode, where it was hard to keep track of who was lying to who. Batwoman was betrayed a few times over, losing the journal of Lucius Fox which has become a serious McGuffin.
