The Legends of Tomorrow have a plan to get Ray (Brandon Routh) back from the clutches of Neron, but as this preview of next week’s show indicates, it is all a trap to disable the Waverider. Is this the final end for their timeship? Considering how much time the Legends spend at the Time Bureau these days, that may not be the worst of all outcomes.
Meanwhile, this week was strangely slow for all that was going on. The dance between Ray and Neron lacked a certain energy, as did Gary’s (Adam Tsekhman) betrayal. That said, I’m glad the show acknowledged the way the Legends treat him. Hopefully, it isn’t too late to pull him back from the darkness.
The Indiana Jones inspired date between Zari (Tala Ashe) and Nate (Nick Zano) was also strangely paced, even if those two dorks are sort of charming together. And the strange, plodding of the story also infected the romance convention despite the unmasking of Mick Rory (Dominic Purcell). It’s nice to see him own his more sensitive side, though.
Add in the book club — a continuation of the bonding night Ava (Jes Macallan), Nora (Courtney Ford) and Mona (Ramona Young) shared a few months back — and you get an episode with lots of stuff happening, but all of it occurring much slower than the audiobook Sara (Caity Lotz) listened to on the treadmill. Hopefully, it means the last handful of episodes will be a little more thrilling, what with the dragon egg about to hatch and Neron’s plan about to unfold. Or maybe this is just a week where all of television leaves us a little unsatisfied.
Legends of Tomorrow airs Mondays on The CW.
