Quotes

Damien Darhk: [lifts Sara in the air with his magic] The very first thing I did in this reality was acquire my magic. I'm gonna miss you, Miss Lance. Having you around to attend to my every whim was too enticing to pass up. Plus, it's so hard to find good help these days.
Leonard Snart: Really? Now's the time for a bad guy monologue?

A Brave New World
31 March 2017 | by ThomasDrufkeSee all my reviews

Most of the complaints I usually have with Legends were washed away with one of the best episodes of the season. Perhaps unironically, the best episode happens to be the one that is the most different.

The formula Legends usually executes was nonexistent as the Legion of Doom took over this week. Even more so than the episode titled 'Legion of Doom', this was very much a showcase of the team of villains as a whole. Thawne put Stein and Jax to work on a reactor that would blow up the spear for good, Darhk was Star City Mayor, and Mick, Snart, and Meryln controlled the city. This gave the writers a chance to give us different versions of each respected Legends. Felicity Smoak was put in a mask and costume and seemed to take up crime fighting after the apparent deaths of all the beloved heroes from Star and Central City.

I think what made this episode feel so different wasn't so much the 'Doomworld' idea, but the fact that this week gave us every character and used them all effectively. It was a real ensemble piece. The only one that I feel had a questionable presence was Rip. How was it that everyone on the team seemed like they were in a different universe, except for Rip. He still ended up on the Waverider with access to Gideon? I know he's needed as a MacGuffin for after the spear is destroyed, but it felt a little too easy.

Then we get to the most shocking part of the episode, Amaya's death. I wasn't sure if the show was going to kill off anybody this year, and I definitely didn't see Amaya's demise coming. Of course, with time travel being a major component in the show, it's not a guarantee the death is going to stick. But I worry more that with the Legends inevitably traveling back in time next episode, that the whole season will be wiped away and none of the events actually happened at all. I've had some fun with this season in what has been a big improvement on last year, but it needs to cap off with a bang next week for me to think of it as a success.
