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.
Okay, here's the thing: I love Mick Rory. I feel like I haven't gotten to talk much about him this season, but he's basically my favorite Legend—maybe even my favorite #DCTV character as a whole. I also love military history. Vietnam and WWII, specifically. So, you can probably imagine my delight with…well, all of this.
Have you ever had a surprise party thrown for you? Or been given a sudden, unexpected gift. This episode kind of felt like that. Except with more flamethrowers and a giant, telepathic gorilla.
...You know, the usual.
I have a confession to make, guys. I am really, shamelessly in love with body swap comedy. I can't help it. I know it's goofy and a trope that we've all seen about a billion times before, but c'mon. You all had to know it was only a matter of time before the Legends ran into a predicament like this, right?
Hey there, Legends fans! Welcome back! We have a ton to get into this week so I'm just going to cut right to the chase. Honestly, I think this was my favorite episode of the season so far, and I'm not just saying that because I like vampire stories...though that certainly didn't hurt.
Okay, but seriously, let's unpack what we learned:
Alright, we've got a lot to get through this week, Legends fans, but before we can do anything, we have to acknowledge the most important thing to happen this week.
How cute was baby Ray?!?!
Oh my god. We've run into child versions of the team before, of course, but this one? This one. What a precious little nerd with great taste in classic movies.
...And listen, if I'm being totally honest here, baby Gumball was pretty cute too, in a horror movie kind of way.
Welcome back, Legends fans! We’re three weeks and three episodes into season three. Time really does fly, even if it’s completely broken and full of anachronisms, huh? This week is a pretty big one—not only did we get our first look at Kuasa in action, but we got to meet a new potential crewmember for the first time and she’s kind of a doozy.
Alright, alright, before we even get started this week, can I get a show of hands? Who here was totally expecting Amaya to rejoin the crew right away? I was definitely banking on it, even after we learned that she and Nate had a pretty rocky breakup last week. I mean, c’mon. You don’t save the world by traveling through time just to suddenly give it up out of the blue, right?
Welcome back, Legends fans! Long time, no see...Though I guess that’s probably a pretty subjective thing to say, considering the show we’re about to jump back into, huh? If there’s one thing you can’t count on in Legends of Tomorrow, it’s time working the way it’s supposed to.
And speaking of time not working the way it’s supposed to—how about those dinosaurs, huh?
