Great Episode
24 July 2017 | by rolltide-68634See all my reviews

This was a great episode as far as Lord of the Rings goes. There are so many references, some harder to notice than others. The overall plot is sort of a repeat of previous episodes, but it is fun to watch as a hardcore LOTR nerd. Some of my friends have watched it and enjoyed it even though they don't watch Legends of Tomorrow. There are enough LOTR references to keep you watching to find them all.
