It was a final page that Green Arrow fans won’t soon forget. Ferociously battling against the Ninth Circle, Malcom Merlyn, and his own mother, Oliver Queen was saved by his sister as she leapt in front of the arrow that had been fired directly at him. It was the most personal blow struck against Ollie yet in his ongoing battle with the powerful forces that have destroyed his life and city.
Tonight was a conclusion (of sorts) to the slow burn ignited by Prometheus at the beginning of this season.
You might need to bear with me a bit on this one, folks.
A long time ago—my first blog, actually—I wrote about how I’m a newcomer to Arrow. As such, some of the references in episodes require me to do some (usually a lot) of research to connect the dots from other seasons.
After tonight, I found myself doing quite a bit of digging to understand who Malcolm Merlyn is and how he connects within the Arrowverse.
Well, Legends fans, here we are. Finale time.
Before we start this week, I just want to thank all of you for coming along on this adventure with me! It’s been an incredible (and incredibly eventful) season across the board and I’ve had an absolute blast getting to talk about it here every week. I hope you’re as excited as I am to see where Season 3 goes because...man, for all the solutions the team may have come up with this time around, they definitely have no shortage of new problems to tackle.
So, the time has finally come. Our up close and personal look into the Legion of Doom is here and it’s...well, pretty intense, if I’m being honest. The Legion is anything but a well-oiled crime machine, but that’s to be expected, really, considering the desperation that pulled them all together.
And speaking of that desperation, let’s kick off this week by diving a little deeper into the source of Eobard’s fears: the Black Flash.
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.
And they thought they had their hands full with Vandal Savage! In today’s panel for DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, the producers of the hit CW series dropped some tantalizing hints for what lies ahead for the crew of the Waverider in Season 2.
