Settling in to their newest quest, the Legends of Tomorrow are trying to find time-lost aliens, keep them from causing trouble, and find leads for their missing leader, Sara Lance. They also have to deal with evolving relationships on the team, Mick’s amazingly bad attitude, even for him, and settling their newest recruit, Spooner, as part of the team.
The Legends of Tomorrow are settling in to their new status quo for the season, hunting aliens that have been scattered in time while searching for their missing leader, Sara Lance. There are some issues to be worked out with the newest recruit, Spooner, and the usual problem of balancing characters with actual powers with talented (and less talented) normals.
Between the show being a mid-season slot and all the COVID issues, it’s been a year since we saw the Legends of Tomorrow. The last thing we saw was the defeat of the Fates, a big celebration after, and then Sara unexpectedly kidnapped by aliens without the others seeing.
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.
The Legends have finally got all the pieces of the Loom of Fate, so everything should be good, right? Well, of course not.
Last episode, the Legends finally gathered all the pieces of the Loom of Fate. Mission accomplished, right? Well, nothing’s ever that easy. Not only do they not really know how to use it, there’s some disagreement about what to try first.
We’ve known it was coming for a while now, and it’s been controversial since it was announced, but the time has come. Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) and Nora Darhk (Courtney Ford) are leaving the show.
The Encores, villains of history returned from Hell, have been pretty firmly established as the big problems for the season. It’s hard to deal with immortal bad guys, and the first two were taken out in fairly unique ways that are hard to repeat.
Aside from the new opening, the Legends’ big challenges this season seem to be the “Encores,” some of the worst of Hell being back on Earth, and uncovering what happened when Zari changed history and wrote herself out of the Legends’ memories.
