See what I did there?

That would make me so very... very happy.


We'll see come the end of this season. I'm sure it will be revealed who the man in the Iron Mask is.


With season 2 featuring the Justice Society I might be reeled back in - provided they can tone the stupids down. I left feeling that the amount of plot induced stupidity required for one episode if Legends was the same needed for 2 episodes of Flash AND Arrow. I can understand a little, but when I start to question the base competence of every cast member it's too much.


Well, they've gotten rid of two of the worst bits of stupid. The ones with wings.


Now if they could just make it so Ray isn't stupid and Firestorm is more...Firestorm.

Plus you know, more JSA is nice. *think Doctor Mid-nite and Sandman might be showing up*

Well their stupid was explained by the occulus and the time masters manipulating them.

Firestorm will never consistently be Firestorm. His CG is too expensive.

Honestly they should cut him if they can't come up with a cost effective way of keeping him around.

I kind of agree with Feral. Get someone else if you need more power. Like POWER GIRL!

Re-watching Scott Pilgrim vs The World, and maybe the whole Legends of Tomorrow crew should go vegan.

Legendary sci-fi actor Lance Henriksen to play JSA hero in Legends of Tomorrow

Not the role I would have expected....


Yeah if nothing else I'd expect him to play Hawkman or hell, Alan Scott.

Well it's not THAT bad just REALLY weird...


I think Season 2 is off to a pretty good start.

Our heroes are still the Worst Defenders of Time.... Ever
but the feel of things is a bit different now. Little more fun.

plus damn

The JSA

oh yes


Good start.
More Ray and Stein is good in my book.
And I'm looking forward to seeing the JSA in action, and hearing what sort of reason they give (if any) for why these weren't famous in the Arrowverse (you'd think someone like Stargirl would be rather noticeable)


Bjorn,

Maybe they gotten written out of the history books after the Johnson administration. Or someone did a timeline wipe.


I liked it, but am not enthralled with the new "leader", who seems "generic CW actor #535" so far. Would have preferred Rip Hunter stick around.


MMC,

There's no indication that Rick Heywood will be the one in charge. If anything I'm betting on Sara taking the reins.

you know...when you think about it Mick has the most experience of the group


Grey,

Maybe but I see him more as the Jayne of this group. Willing to do what it takes to see the mission through, not necessarily the most moral of guys. Ethical probably, but morals...not so much.

I still think Sara is going to lead this team against the Legion of Doom/League of Doom. Mostly because she wants Darkh's head on a spit.

What that means after that? Who knows...

Dark Archive

I think Ray would probably step up to lead. Mick is too much of the "hot head" (no pun intended) and Sara is too blinded by revenge.


Marik,

Not sure Ray is ready yet. He might be next season but I keep seeing Sara running things this season. Until she screws up big time.

Dark Archive

Given that he's now the fixer-of-the-ship, and less likely to go off into flighty distractable science-mode than Gilligan or the Professor, or psycho-vengeance mode than Mary-Ann, or let's blow s*++ up mode than not-Jayne-Cobb, perhaps Jefferson will end up taking on an unexpected leadership role.


Hm!! Now there's an idea. Not sure about it but it's more sensible than the other suggestion, Set. I just wonder since he's one half of the Firestorm matrix, how that will work out...


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I don't know what it is, but when Mick calls Ray "Haircut" in the middle of a fire fight, it just gives me such hope for the show and its potential.

Also, Damien and Eobard are my two favorite villains from CW DC shows so far, and seeing them together was delightful. I hope those two get a good deal of screen time this season, because I don't know how they could go wrong.

Liberty's Edge

I'm gonna guess Stein makes a play for leadership in the next episode or two, but it quickly becomes apparent that Sara is the one stepping up to take charge in crisis situations. Longer term... hard to say. I doubt they are done introducing new characters for the season, so there will be a lot of unknown variables which could influence who is calling the shots in the medium and long term.

Dark Archive

I'm not sure how the dynamic is going to play out, or if it is anything but a disaster in the making for this particular band of jokers to have access to a time ship. (Granted, they can't be any more of a danger to the timestream than Barry Frikkin' Allen...)

I'm just glad that Rip is gone, at least for now. I could not stand that guy, and his daily voice-over reminding us of his dead wife and child.

Sovereign Court

Damien Darkh is by far my favorite CWverse villain. I mean he finds out they stole the idol. His response? "Well, that just happened". I mean come on.

Plus you can just SEE Neal McDonough having a freaking BLAST eating all of the scenery he can get his hands on.

Dark Archive

I like him as Damien Darkh far better than as Dum Dum Dugan, in the Captain America/Peggy Carter appearances. He's totally wasted when he can't chew up the scene and be over-the-top.

They just haven't given him enough chance to develop Dum Dum Dugan.


Agreed. Dum Dum wasn't given enough to work with. I'd love to see Neal McDonough to run some more Dugan especially now that LMDs are a thing.


So thoughts on last night's episode?


1 person marked this as a favorite.

My continuing gripe with LoT is that the action is kinda of half-arsed compared to the Marvel shows and even the rest of the Arrow-verse. Powerhouses like Firestorm basically just fly around and are forgotten most of the time. Fire from him or Mick doesn't actually hurt anyone. Much though I like Stein he seems to be destined to be consistently and constantly wrong about things. Let him be right and teach other people something for once, you damn writers!

Fun to see the JSA in action, however briefly, and I'm enjoying RF is rushing about messing things up.

Still, this season is so far seems promising.


Firestorm SHOULD be the team's powerhouse. Instead, most of the time, the team splits in two, with Jefferson and Stein being on different teams. And like Bjorn said, e,ven when they're together, he mostly just flies around without actually doing anything. I know it's because of the cost of CGI, but at least give a better excuse for it in-show than just utter stupidity.


Yeah I feel the same way since in the comics, Firestorm had actual abilities to compete with the same level as freaking Superman and Wonder Woman or even just Green Lantern.

At least the JSA is doing alright...barring that kill by Thawne.

I do wonder what the hell his plan is...

Liberty's Edge

I think the inclusion of Firestorm as a core member is generally a bad idea. Using him on the regular will cripple the budget but consistently coming up with reasons for him to 'sit out' just feels contrived. The best answer is to just omit him and bring him in on special occasions.


Is this show less stupid now than it was last season where they ran around trying to figure out how to find Vandal Savage in time while knowing full well exactly where he'd have been at the time of the Flash/Arrow crossover and having a team member who had been killed by him numerous times throughout history?

Liberty's Edge

It's still plenty stupid but there's certainly less stupid.

The hawkpeople are gone. This both helped with the cast bloat and reduced the highest concentration of drama/idiotball. Captain Cold and Rip are also gone - the latter also being a nexus of drama.

There's still plenty of silly time travel stuff but otherwise what's left is shamelessly comicbooky in a way that works pretty well.


What Feral said. I will also add that it's less stupid now that they have a strong foil in the form of the Legion of Doom versus one guy.

So at the end of the episode

Spoiler:
when Reverse Flash killed Hourman, did that create an alternate timeline and or time loop? Since Hourman was killed and erased from existence before he was sent to 2016 to warn the Legends not to come to 1942, he never goes, they never get the warning, and thus never show up saying they know him? I hope this at least gets mentioned in the next episode.


Joel,

I think that will probably be addressed down the line. At least I hope so.

Liberty's Edge

Bring in Booster Gold!


Phoebee,

I think they're saving him for a Blue Beetle team up and their own show.

I could be wrong though!

I thought I read somewhere that it will potentially be a movie now rather than a show.


Joel,

It might be. I forget things after a while.


I like Mick so much. He was an absolute treat this episode.
"What he meant was, 'thank you for your hospitality, but we have to go'."
<flat, deadpan Mick voice> "No. I didn't."

Also, Ray and Nate were great as well.

All in all, I'd say I probably enjoyed this episode of Legends more than any other thus far.

Yeah, Mick's ninja fascination was one of the series's high points so far over both seasons.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Indeed, the whole ninja thing was pretty awesome to add in.

Even if this was essentially a filler episode.

Liberty's Edge RPG Superstar 2008 Top 32, 2011 Top 16

I wouldn't say it was a filler episode, since it really was an introduce Steel and Vixen to the team episode.


Well it didn't advance the plot all that much, Joel. But yes it did do the steel intro pretty well. Vixen was kind of a known quantity to me.
