What I’m Watching: Legends of Tomorrow

Legends of Tomorrow: Season 2, Episode 6 “Outlaw Country” (B)

There are so many characters on this show that I find it’s often hard to keep track. The only reason I recognized Jonah Hex was because of the scar on his face, though I still can’t recall exactly how he fits into all of this. Nearly getting hung in the 1870s was a great reason for the crew to come back to save him, and the notable guest of the hour was Jeff Fahey from “Lost” as Turnbull. I think the best part of the episode was, after Mick burned money in front of Turnbull to start a fight with him, they ended up drinking together and liking each other. Amaya’s comment that they might end up getting matching tattoos was very entertaining. The conversations Mick and Amaya had about unleashing their inner animals and controlling them were interesting, and I think she’s a great addition to the show for a number of reasons. Nate had a superb episode of growth as he drew a superhero costume and then earned it in real life by stopping a train with his steel skeleton after getting shot. The new memories that Stein is experiencing are cause for concern, and I’m not sure how the team will be able to rectify that. This impending return to 2016 should be fortuitous to fill in what has changed, though I suspect there may not be time for too much of that given what’s sure to be an epic four-series crossover which I can’t wait to experience.
