The gang finally gets the epic faceoff with the Dominators. It’s silly, but pretty great. They beat back the alien invaders (shocking, right?), and everyone holds hands and hugs (literally) in the end.
Barry gets all the heroes together to take on aliens. Most of them get brainwashed, but Barry tricks Supergirl into stopping it. (Future) Barry’s message from Legends of Tomorrow is to not trust (Young) Barry. Uh-oh.
The CW has somehow avoided cramming pretty much the entire Arrow-verse into one glorious scene up until this point, but all that is about to change. Supergirl, meet the Arrow-verse. Arrow-verse, meet Supergirl.
The gang picks up an anomaly in 1874, which leads them right back to their old pal Jonah Hex. An opportunistic businessman is mining dwarf star, and takes over half the country in the future. The team goes full-on wild, wild west to stop him.
The short version: The gang travels to the 1980s to stop Damien Dhark from making the Cold War a lot hotter. Ray tries (and fails) to be Snart. Sara tells Damien Darhk his entire future, so Eobard Thawne lets him travel through time. Uh-oh.
We had a feeling it was going to happen, and this week it’s official: Legends of Tomorrow is probably the most crazy fun show on television. If you gave up during the stilted first season, it’s time to come back. For real. You’re missing something truly unique on network television.
The crew of the Waverider is heading to Feudal Japan in tonight's episode of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow (“Shogun”), and The CW has released a new sneak peek that sees the debut of Nate Haywood (Nick Zano) as Citizen Steel.
The first season of Legends of Tomorrow was a lot of fun, but also a total mess. Stories that could’ve been wrapped up in an hour stretched into two-parters, while the interesting arcs were crammed into an episode or less. The season-long narrative of hunting down Vandal Savage also left a lot to be desired.
