Legends Of Tomorrow: Out of Time (S2, Ep. 1 | Spoilers)

“When a new threat emerges, Dr. Nate Heywood seeks out Oliver Queen to help find the scattered Legends; once reunited, they go to 1942, to keep Albert Einstein from being kidnapped before the Nazis destroy New York City with a nuclear bomb.” (IMDB)

Quick Thoughts

  • I love that Sara Lance is the tank of the team – not the Atom, or Firestorm, or Mick Rory, or even Rip, all of whom could easily be written that way. It’s Sara that you have to worry about in a fight.
  • I also love that Sara’s kind of a Captain Kirk-style dog when it comes to women. You always see men written this way, and it’s fun to see a woman written like that for once. Also, Caity Lotz is clearly having a tremendous amount of fun playing her that way.
  • Oliver Queen’s cameo was a hoot, and his scene with the new historian guy, Nate Heywood, and Mick Rory in stasis might have been the highlight of the episode. “How do you know he’s in stasis?” *Ollie points at the computer screen, which reads “STASIS”* 😂
  • It seems like Legends will be keeping the same style as last season, where “plot” is basically the wafer thin excuse that carries them from punchline to action set to punchline. They move fast and don’t get bogged down in pesky details or trivialities like plot logic. It’s both irritating and hilarious.
  • Man, I miss Captain Cold.
  • I just noticed that our new historian, Nate Heywood, is also credited as “Citizen Steel” on IMDB. Iiiiintersting. Citizen Steel is tied up with Vandal Savage, the Hawk Couple and the Justice Society of America.
  • Also, the Justice Society of America!
