Some Thoughts on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: Superhero Saturday

The Satisfying Finale of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow

A few weeks ago I talked about DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and the fact that I like the characters of Ray Palmer, Sarah Lance, and Rip Hunter.  I also like the idea of an ensemble show about a team of heroes who travel through time to save humanity. This week capitalized on those things – my favorite twist was that the team had to kill the villain (who I have not been crazy about) simultaneously at three separate moments in history.  All three deaths were satisfying conclusions (a grieving and pissed off Sarah completing the task by hand was particularly impressive), and thankfully freed the show from an ancient Egyptian based plot that managed to be both convoluted and laughable. To further that end they also said goodbye (at least for now) to Hawkman and Hawkgirl who were bogged down by that same faux Egyptian nonsense, among other things.

I always like it when season finales manage to both bring the season to a satisfying conclusion, and make you excited to tune in next year – and this episode did that.  I’m actually more excited about this show then I’ve been since it started.
