Ray Palmer: Does Gray... I mean Marty, know that you wanna break up with him?
Jefferson Jackson: No clue. But if he did, he'd say it was too dangerous.
Ray Palmer: Well, if you're really determined to do this, severing your psychic connection could give us some much-needed mental space to figure out how to untie the nuclear knot.
Jefferson Jackson: Well, let's do it.
Ray Palmer: Okay. Here goes.

Vampires and Mark Morrison
8 November 2017 | by ThomasDrufkeSee all my reviews

Leave it to Legends to have an episode based around vampire hunting and the Mark Morrison song, Return of the Mack. Yep, sounds like a usual day around the office.

Where last week's episode was a nice character piece for Zari and Ray, this week's episode featured some fun vampire related material, even if the return of Damien Darhk is completely random and just a tired plot thread at this point. There's not a single part of me that needs to see more of Darhk on this show. Neal McDonough has done a great job as that character for a long time, but I just feel like it's dead at this point.

Jax decided last week that they need to get rid of him and Steins connection as Firestorm so that Stein can go back to his daughter. And while the whole "keeping Stein out of the loop" thing was completely unnecessary and convoluted, I do appreciate something of consequence actually happening on this show. Yes, Stein should be with his daughter, and there's no denying that the show needs a bit of a switch up at any rate with its cast.

Speaking of the cast, new member Zari continues to play a pivotal role in each episode as she dealt with a mind-reader/witch/whatever the heck she was, who used Zari's amulet to bring Darhk back. I think the idea of amulets and communicating with the dead is going to continue to be a plot point this season, and I'm starting to become fascinated with Zari's character. There's just enough mystery left untouched so far that is keeping me locked into her character. Tala Ashe has been a wonderful addition to the crew thus far.

The return of Rip Hunter was less than welcomed. In fact, he's another character that I just don't understand why this show keeps bringing back. It's just as big of a mystery as it is why the Waverider still obeys his commands? How has the team not figured out a way to override anything Rip says to Gideon? It's honestly the most frustrating thing to see the team constantly be fooled by Rip's misplaced confidence in the Legends.

Overall, this episode was a bit jumbled with plot. There wasn't nearly enough vampire goodness to be memorable in that area and we even had a random Curtis sighting as the team found Oliver Queen's fingerprints on the watch. Only a few more weeks until I don't have to get upset with the lack of quality for the individual shows and hopefully be thrilled with the outcome of the crossover.
