Storyline

When the Legends track down an anachronism in 1930s Hollywood, they discover it's none other than a time-displaced Helen of Troy and she's just started a war between two film studios. As the Legends try to fix history and return Helen to the Bronze Age, things get complicated when they are blindsided by the appearance of a former enemy. Sara contemplates an offer she is made, which would make the Legends leave the anachronisms be. Meanwhile, Stein and Jax find themselves in an unusual predicament. Written by sarah_l91

Freaky Friday
21 November 2017 | by ThomasDrufkeSee all my reviews

Hey, why not have an episode centered around the Legends saving Hedy Lamarr and Helen of Troy from Hollywood madness/sexism. I mean, at this point, as long as the show entertains me, they can have a whole episode in one location about taking down a pesky insect. Oh wait….

For the most part, this was just another ridiculous entry into a long- running list of Legends episodes taking a particular time period and subject, and fitting it well enough into an episode to put a smile on my face. It also helps that I'm a big old time Hollywood guy, I find all of the drama behind some 30's and 40's movies to be fascinating. Helen of Troy obviously didn't walk through Warner Bros lot and steal Hedy Lamarr's job, but I found it to be just the perfect amount of stupid fun to suffice.

Meanwhile, Jax and Stein had their own issues as they continue to deal with their desire to split Firestorm apart. The whole freaky-Friday switcharoo just added to the chaos as they got a chance to live out a day in the other person's body. Which obviously doesn't feel as meaningful considering they spent a lot of time as one brain, but the payoff of having Stein actually suit up as FIrestorm was more than worth it.

Amaya uncovered some shocking, or maybe not-so-shocking news. Kuasa is in fact Amaya's granddaughter. Perhaps more interesting is what Zari's relation to this entire thing? Why is it that she's in this season anyway?

But maybe the best part of this episode is the fact that they dropped off Helen of Troy at Themyscira in 1253. A cool easter egg to end off a pretty cool episode with old Hollywood. I don't particularly care for Damien Darhk's return, or his daughter?? But if it stays fun I'll stay tuned.

7.5/10
