For all of it's crazy cool poo poo that's happening, Mick screaming and pushing his kid who's in a stroller? down the hall was amazing. Makes no sense now, but will be perfectly understandable at the time.

Office chair, and she's pregnant, which would explain Mick's rage.

They put the trailer up on YouTube if you don't want to deal with EW's site.

Explains his rage, but truly just brings up more questions. Goddamn this show is goofy as hell but so enjoyable.

They did skip the last crossover, so I'm assuming they've been ducking any calls.

Mick is still amazing, and the checklist Ava had was loving amazing. I honestly think that could be used to write an episode.

Well, "present" with heavy air quotes. I think the only ones present were like, Sara, Constantine, and Rory (plus kinda sorta Captain Cold as the alternate Waverider's AI)

I mean Constantine's a team member now so I assume Ava's gotten way over Sara's history.

So Gary being an alien is a thing and I'm okay with it honestly. Give's him something more to do that isn't just being Constantine's apprentice.

Spooner Cruz feels like their own version of either Jessica Cruz or Jaime Reyes. Maybe more the latter. I do like her version of the tinfoil hat. That's actually extremely clever.

He's had his glasses off numerous times before - there is nothing to "make sense" of in this. They retconned this in for this season, it is not anything they planned before.
We've always known his surname. Why is it hilarious?

It makes him a Little Green Man. And yeah, it's a total retcon, but he was already the most cartoonish character on a show about time traveling wizards. It's about time he got a hook to go along with it.

Oh, no, I just thought it was funny that someone else had brought it up to her. I knew she was handling it just fine, the wording of "Swing a dead cat" just hit me in the right spot for some reason.

Gary being an alien is one of those retcons that actually makes no sense on its head, but for a show like Legends it's JUST dumb enough that it works perfectly.

Season 1 Legends is hard to recommend because all the legitimately good episodes come at like the very end of the season. Everything from 1x13 onward is pretty good and where the show starts to develop the identity it would eventually come to fully embrace in Season 2. Also Star City 2046 and Marooned are decent too. Everything else is kinda garbo.

Sara Lance's story started with her getting marooned on an island with Crixus, so getting stranded in space with Spartacus had a kind of symmetry.

Well he went evil for "reasons" a couple of seasons ago. And I'm pretty certain he has been on the waverider med bed a bunch of times.

The character has always annoyed me and I think the character makes the show worse, so I guess "he;s an alien now also" just rubs me even more the wrong way. I can think of a dozen other ways that they could have given Sara a companion for her lost on her own bit (the reason the writers have given for the Gary is an alien)

Actually, the cocoon is probably the reason. He shifted into a regular human and when he had to go back to abduct Sara and join his fiancee, he had to cocoon and morph his body back to normal and get his shape shifter glasses out to keep up appearances just in case.

I keep thinking about when they used Gary as the virgin to lure a unicorn and he asks Constantine "Did what we did count?" and John says "No."

I have even more questions about that than I used to.

He wasn’t dead back when Gary first arrived though. Since he never even attempted to hang around him we must assume he considered Sara a more valuable target than Oliver.
