Well, here we are Legends fans. It's the midseason finale. We're about to go on hiatus until 2018, so make sure you give yourself a lovely holiday full of wild hypothesizing and conspiracy theory crafting because, man, things are getting weird this time around, huh?
All right Legends fans, you made it. You're completely through this year's four-part crossover event…or, at least you should be. If you missed Supergirl, Arrow or The Flash this week, maybe wait to read this post! Legends was the finale of the event, so all spoilers are fair game here.
Sound good? Do I need to place a SPOILER ALERT bolded, underlined and in all caps here? No?
Great! Let's go.
I don’t know about you, readers, but I have been having an absolute blast watching this year’s “Crisis on Earth-X” four-part crossover event! I was a big fan of last year’s “Invasion” crossover, but thought it would be a huge bar for the teams behind these shows to have to clear. First, let’s acknowledge how awesome it’s been having all four shows completely involved in the quest to punch Nazis.
On paper, you can break down the difference between heroes and rogues in black and white words. But is it really so simple as a checklist? It's not like a determined number of actions cancel out evil deeds. There's not an official table that says one person rescued makes up for committing a robbery and wrecking property. People have to decide whether others have changed by going with their guts and their hearts. It's something I considered as I read the first pages of THE FLASH VOL.
Killer Frost has been kicking around The Flash this season in a big, bad way! We’ve known since Danielle Panabaker was cast to play the role of Caitlin Snow that there was potential for Killer Frost to emerge as an important villain for Barry Allen to face, but it’s taken three entire seasons for her to ascend to her true villainess glory—and that new costume really is everything!
Welcome back, Legends fans! Talk about having to go there (and back again) this time around, huh? And, man, things are...not looking all that great for the future of the world.
I can’t say I’ve ever really thought about ways to make World War I bleaker than it already was, but losing the literal Holy Grail in the middle of the battlefield on the Somme is pretty effective, all things considered. But, hey, at least we got to hang out with J.R.R. Tolkien for a little bit while we were at it. That’s a definitely a silver lining if ever there was one.
Welcome back, Legends fans! It’s been awhile! Hopefully you’ve had enough time to recover from last week’s “Invasion” before we hit the ground running tonight because, man alive, there is a ton to talk about.
With the Dominators out of the way, the Legion of Doom has rocketed to the forefront of the team’s agenda—and not a moment too soon because we’ve finally got some answers about their plans. Turns out Thawne has been recruiting people to go on a quest for the Spear of Destiny—a mythological artifact with all sorts of terrifying powers.
Welcome back, Legends fans! This week, our heroes managed to avoid prolonging the Cold War, so that’s certainly something. Good work all around, especially considering a few rogue elements (I’m looking at YOU, Young Dr. Stein) who seemed to bend over backwards to try and bring about nuclear war.
