Did You Know?


When Jax meets the image of Gideon as a female human in Rip Hunter's mind, he remarks that he pictured her as a redhead. This is possibly an allusion to Arthur Darvill's previous role in "Doctor Who", where redheaded actress Karen Gillan played his wife. See more »


When Swigert is talking to the NASA doctor, he says "He just wants to be on that shuttle", but Apollo 13 had only a Command/Service Module and a Lunar Excursion Module. No shuttle. See more »


Dr. Martin Stein: [after the Waverider crashes] How many times must I tell you people Mick Rory is not to pilot this ship?
Sara Lance: It wasn't Mick. It was Gideon.

Why is Rip Back
9 March 2017 | by ThomasDrufkeSee all my reviews

I'm not sure when this season became more about Rip Hunter than it did the Legion of Doom. Doesn't it feel like they have barely gotten their chance to do anything this season? Was anyone asking for Rip to come back? I was enjoying this season until it started heading in a questionable direction.

Rip somehow was able to say three words and shut down the entire Waverider through Gideon. I'm sorry, why didn't he do this the first time he tried to take the Legends out on the ship? What is the point of having him back anyway? Especially now that he's no longer a villain and a "Legend" again. Why aren't we getting more Doom centric episodes? I like this show the most when it's not taking itself too seriously and exploring the depths of time travel in weird and goofy ways. Having an entire episode centered around Rip's mind and how it works is not how I would like to spend 42 minutes.

Gideon made a real-life appearance in Rip's subconscious and Amaya, Ray, and Nate all had a run-in with a prehistoric dinosaur. It was quite the episode, but nothing I wouldn't expect from Legends. I would just like to know the point of Rip's side arc. The focus isn't really on the journey to avenge Rex Tyler anymore. There were some cool moments and surprises to this episode, but as of right now, I'm starting to question whether or not this show is worth watching. Making Rip's walk back into the bridge slow-motion and "epic looking"? No, just no.
