This is it, Legends fans. It's all come down to this. All six totems, Mallus—wait, I mean Malice—free from his prison, the crew caught in an impossible gambit, old friends returning, a giant mystically powered plush doll named Beebo storming in to save the world… You know, the usual.
Alright, Legends fans, I know I say this a lot, but there was SO MUCH going on this week. I feel like it may have actually set some sort of Legends of Tomorrow record for the amount of plots intersecting all at once. From Obama to Lord of the Rings (?!) to Amaya in Zambezi to the Darhks to Ava and Rip. Phew!
And with only one more episode left in this season, I don't think things are in any danger of slowing down now. So, with that in mind, let's break this one down piece by piece, starting from the beginning.
Welcome back, Legends fans! Hopefully you're not all shook up from meeting Elvis this week, or, you know, too unsettled by the music of a haunted guitar capable of summoning the dead. Actually, you know what? Maybe we'd be better off not searching our feelings regarding meeting the king of rock 'n' roll this time around. The circumstances really weren't ideal.
Ahoy, Legends fans! You'd better believe that if I were better at talking—er, typing like a pirate, this entire post would be done in dialect. So count yourselves lucky that pirate-speak is not something I'd include on my particular list of skills.
In my defense, it's really not something I'd include on Amaya's list of skills either, and she seems to have done pretty okay.
It took three seasons, but we finally did it. We got the time travel story trope I've been waiting for from day one. We got the Groundhog's Day episode and I couldn't be more excited.
But of course, it wouldn't be Legends of Tomorrow if it were just a simple time loop scenario. There's just gotta be some weirdness, right? And boy howdy, there was plenty of it to go around this week.
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:
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.
You can say that Zari Adrianna Tomaz, the newest person to climb aboard the Waverider in tonight’s DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, is resourceful and bright. When we meet her, she’s living underground in a dystopian Seattle in 2042, keeping herself off ARGUS’s radar through her formidable hacking skills. You can say she’s fast-thinking, managing to deftly evade both the Legends and the water-wielding villain who seems to have targeted her.
