How do you save your younger self?
This week’s Legends of Tomorrow places the team into an interesting situation. Do to the team making short work of the Hunter’s. The Time Lords sent a greater threat known as as the Pilgram. The Pilgram is the Time Masters greatest assassin. So the team has no other choice but to go back in time and kidnap there younger selfs. This leads to some interesting scenes with each character. While some seemed a little cheap (Stein’s scene was groin inducing as his parents just have him away) a great moment was Jax meeting the father he never met. As Jax is probably the character who has had the least bit of development it’s good to see some focus on his character. And the end result was a touching great moment.
One of the interesting things about this episode is that it immediately ruled out Kendra and Rip Hunter. Rip ruled out due to his importance to the timeline and Kendra because killing her would make no difference because she reincarnates. One of the interesting things that the show is doing is creating a rift between Snart and Hunter by Bringing back one of the biggest mysteries of he show, Rip Hunter’s past. One of these questions was answered as we were introduced to Rip Hunter’s mother. We also find out that his name is Micheal and a little history on how time masters are found. We also got to see a younger version of Rip Hunter which was a bad ass so that was cool.
The action scenes in this episode seemed adequate enough but not on par with what we usually see on the show. Even the final fight while cool just didn’t live up to the hype of what the character was suppose to be. Overall a solid episode but didn’t quite live up to the hype.
Score 7.0 out of 10
