That's pretty much what I was thinking throughout that episode. Her fighting scenes are great, well choreographed and not cut to a stuntwoman mid-movement. She also has the physique to pull it off in a believable way.

Yes, Legends of Tomorrow definitely canít afford a Firestorm.



My only real issue with that episode was that the away team of Nate, Rory, Sara and Ray were targeted by ARGUS tracking missing metahumans. The only metahuman in that team was Nate, and when he disappeared from his timeline he wasn't a metahuman yet.

Ralph Dibny is the best thing to happen to this show in a long time, and the council of Wells delivered on its promises. Now this is starting to feel more like the show I used to love. It seems like they also keep putting the Dibny actor in ill-fitting suits with too short sleeves to accentuate his natural lankiness.

Think that was supposed to go in The Flash thread, but I agree 100%.

I have no idea how that happened! I was just reading the Flash thread!

Anyway, this show is also strong as ever, and I really like Zari as a fresh recruit who can be the "straight man" for a while until the stupidity rubs of on her. This is really one of the best overall CW combined Arrowverse seasons, and the crossover looks promising.

I liked that while the crossover was a more consistent thing this year, the story of each episode still centered a little more on the protagonists of that show. Also, having just binged the UK series Being Human, I was pleasantly surprised to see Russell Tovey as the Ray, and would love to have him on the waverider next season.

This crossover was everything I could have hoped for and more, but I still found it pretty weird that of the Coldray couple, the one who's from earth 1 went back to fight for earth X and the one from earth X had some business to attend to on earth 1.

Dibny. As in Ralph Dibny, the elongated man.
Probably a brain fart morphing him with John Diggle.

Who knew that a fun show that doesn't take itself seriously would be a million times better than one that is extremely depressing and 100% nonstop drama?

I'm fine with my superhero shows having different tones, actually I prefer it that way. It's possible to write great comedic shows and great dark and dramatic shows.

I think the first two Arrow seasons were pretty good, but I also liked the first Flash season, how tonally different it was from Arrow, and how the characters clashed when they crossed between shows.

In the early crossovers you got the contrast between the silly superfast hero battling colorful supervillains who were given silly nicknames by the team, and the dark and brooding parkour archer with five years spent in hell who killed rich people who "FAILED THIS CITY", and scenes like Ollie training Barry by unsuspectingly shooting him in the back with remote controlled arrow turrets and telling him to get over it.

Its too bad there probably isn't a budget, but a Space Cop Green Lantern Arrowverse show would be awesome. Because its on TV they can focus on someone other than Hal. Guy Gardner

Fixed.

This just made me want a musical episode. A proper one, not that sorry excuse for a musical Flash episode.

I honestly expected a duet when Constantine and the fairy godmother had that confrontation on the ship. Constantine even lets out a little rhyme at first when he hears the laugh:

"Aywell Ah know yer there, ya old bat
Why don't ye show yeself an 'ell 'ave ourselves a little chat!"

Also Matt Ryan is just perfect for the part as Constantine, exactly how I imagined him from the old Hellblazer comics (except maybe a few years older). I still can't wrap my head around that someone thought Keanu Reeves was the best pick for the part (I still haven't dared see that film).

I agree with points 1 and 2. Mona is a character I currently like, but she's also the sort of character who could become annoying if they overuse her or lean too far into the quirky.

Well, there's a thing called character development, and it wouldn't be very reasonable at all to have her character stay exactly the same unless she's brain damaged.

Right now she's geeking out over seeing all the mythical creatures she's read about all her life and working alongside time traveling superheroes, neither of which she knew existed a few days ago when she was just just a delivery girl constantly being called out to a particular office building because a dweeb who worked there had a crush on her and ordered food just to meet her. Some of that may pass when she gets more jaded from being around magical creatures daily.

For example, Ava used to be cold and distant because she never had a childhood or a family and later even discovered that she was grown in a lab and her memories were planted. While the show still has her uncomfortable about kid stuff like birthdays and summer camps, her girlfriend and co workers make it their mission to "humanize" her, something that often leads to her showing the persona of the giggly schoolgirl she never got to be. This last episode had another turning point where the lockdown forced her into having a birthday party with her new BFFs and chat with Nora about the boy who likes her and sent her a note in class.

I was actually just wondering about that (and the other cat scenes)! Love that they actually went to the trouble of training a cat instead of using CGI or camera tricks with prosthetic paws or whatever.

This episode had excellent choreography. The dancing conversation between Sara and Ava was pretty well done, but the luchadore stuff was amazing. That last royal rumble had my jaw on the floor.

The way they handled that was pretty great. ďIím not your ex, I just look like her for really dumb reasons.Ē / ďOkay. Cool. You wanna go do fun platonic history poo poo?Ē / ďSure.Ē

Agreed, I would hate to have Nate pining about his lost love for seasons to come. I actually donít mind Nate/Zari, theyíre two hot, single people sharing a destiny and spending time together (even having to actually pretend to be a couple) where they discover likable features about each other and start seeing each other with different eyes. Itís how relationships start, I think it was as organic as a show about time traveling unicorn hunters could tell a romance plot.



Also agree on the statement last page that Zariís faith is handled well. Itís her personal faith, she keeps it to herself and itís just a fragment of her identity, along with everything else. I love that she doesnít have to be a parody or anything, and the religion just is a thing that comes up naturally in lines like the one about a hindi and a muslim getting a christian wedding.

Natari isnít bad, but I think Mona should have gone with Zathan instead.

While itís hard to top the Bollywood number with Zari in a Sari, it was fun to watch Sara rescue Ava from IKEA.

Hahaha I was thinking the exact same thing.

Me too, I was like: Hey, is that Mikey the construction worker (from unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) as Mikey the construction worker?

So I had to check on IMDB, but of course he was uncredited on Legends...

Then I noticed the actor is also named Mike

...and he also played in a movie called "construction", a character named....

...Mike.

Is this some kind of running joke? casting Mike Carlsen as construction workers named Mike?

So....was that a future version of Zari where she transitioned to a man, or an entirely different person?

Her brother, who died in the original timeline, forcing Zari to take over the wind totem and go into hiding because of the anti-metahuman laws. Because of the time idiots the entire world became a giant Kum Ba Ya-land instead, the anti-meta backlash didn't happen, her brother lived, and Zari never became a superhero who was recruited by the legends.
