Storyline

The Legends travel to Nazi-occupied Paris, but find themselves surrounded by the Justice Society of America (AKA JSA.) The Legends discover a time aberration that threatens the JSA, but the JSA wants nothing to do with them or their help. Nevertheless, the Legends force their way into the JSA's mission to intercept and seize a mysterious package. Nate is desperate to prove that he should be part of the team, but he has a secret that he shares with his grandfather Commander Steel that might make it difficult. Ray is so focused on impressing the JSA, he puts himself and Vixen in danger. Meanwhile, Stein has stepped in as the leader with Rip gone, but when decisions aren't being made Sara seems to be the one calling the shots.

Goofs

When our heroes are trying to infiltrate a bar full of Nazis they overhear "Herr Krieger" talk to another person. In the ensuing dialogue he says "oh ten hundred tomorrow", the mistake is quite clear when you write it out in numbers (0 10:00), two digit numbers aren't prefixed by a 0, even in military/24 hour time format.

Quotes

Baron Krieger: [admiring the Atom suit] I must admit, it's a feat of engineering far beyond anything I've ever seen, or expected from you Americans.
Ray Palmer: Well... maybe you Germans should just stick to your luxury cars.

Sara Takes Charge
21 October 2016 | by ThomasDrufkeSee all my reviews

While I was entertained by last week's Legends, I knew that it was only a matter of time before the series started to feel a little clunky and goofy. This week didn't come anywhere the silliness of last year, but it was definitely more jumbled and convoluted.

Enter JSA, the supposed "secret" group of superheroes helping the U.S. government in this universe, which includes an older Vixen, Rex Tyler AKA Hourman, Commander Steel, Stargirl, Dr. Mid-Nite, and Obsidian. It's not shocking that both teams didn't mesh, especially after the Legends lost their "captain" last week. But as silly and borderline cheesy the line delivery got, I still had some fun with this episode.

I was glad to see Sara step up and take on the new leadership role for the team as Stein simply could not handle it. Seriously though, we don't need Stein and Jax locked up in the Waverider any longer than they already are. Get them out in the field.

It's hard to keep track of all that's going on in the show, since there are now close to a dozen main characters, and the pairings we got didn't help all that much to amp up the excitement. The show always relies on crazy action sequences and that's all fine, but I would like to see Ray Palmer do something other than get a love interest. Granted, I don't really know if they are going to have him and Vixen shack up, but that sure seemed like that's how they were positioning them.

Commander Steel and Dr. Heyward had some quality time together, but I also found it hard to connect with them as a duo as well. I'm sure as the series goes along I feel a connection, but I didn't find myself caring when they almost got killed by a Nazi explosion. It's still weird that I'm discussing Nazi's in a show in the same universe as Arrow, but I guess that's the universe they live in now. Speaking of which, I got a giggle every time that Nazi "super soldier" appeared on screen.

Overall, it's nowhere near as dense of a show as Arrow or Flash, so I don't really expect much week to week. The one saving grace here was the last scene having Reverse Flash kill Rex Tyler. Did we really even see Rex do anything anyway? That was a bada** kill, but I wish I would cared a little bit more for Tyler. Felt a whole lot like Hawkman from last year.

+Clash of teams

+Reverse Flash' cameo
