This week’s Legends of Tomorrow picks right up from the Kronos attack. What an intro did this episode had! This episode did a great job with establish Kronos as a threat as he easily dispatched the team and kidnapped Snart. And the big reveal on who Kronos is was an excellent surprise. I love who Kronos is and his motivations on capturing the team make adds to the drama on the show. The final battle and reveal to the team was an awesome moment to see.
On the other side of things the show did a good job of showing the remaining team members building a life in 1958 which turned to 1960. So what have the other three members been doing? Ray and Kendra have been building a life together and Sara has rejoined the League. The episode didn’t waste anytime with getting Ray and Kendra back on the team. Too bad that Ray didn’t want to come back as he was getting adapted to the past. On the other side of things Kendra is more than happy to be back with the team. The team gives her purpose, something that she was clearly lacking in her life in the 50s. My only knock was how hard she was on Ray then to turn around and be like ok I love you. This could’ve have been established a little bit better.
Sara went back to the League of Assassins and more importantly the great Matt Noble as Ra’s Al Ghul. We got some great callbacks to the comics and to Arrow. One of them just happens to be the first appearance of a young Talia Al Ghul. While I suspect it was only a Easter egg it was cool nonetheless to see. The trial by combat also worked well as it was not by Ra’s Al Ghul but Sara vs Kendra which is a great callback to a previous episode. Overall an excellent episode that shows why Legends of Tomorrow is a show you should be watching!
