What I’m Watching: Legends of Tomorrow

Legends of Tomorrow: Season 2, Episode 7 “Invasion!” (B)

I think the best part of this whole crossover was the merging of four logos at the start of the episode. That doesn’t say much about it, and it’s unfortunate that the action didn’t really start until the ten-minute sequence we got towards the end of the episode with everyone in play. I’m still happy that it happened, and I like that Cisco gave Kara a gift which allows her to open new breaches and could well create another crossover. It was fun to see two characters that don’t star on this show, Cisco and Felicity, get such a kick out of traveling through time with a few of the Legends, with one of them doing a much poorer job of holding in her stomach contents and adjusting to the effects of traversing the space-time continuum. It’s a circular problem that them saving a Dominator’s life sixty-five years earlier made them guilty of messing with the timeline the same way that they wanted to punish Barry for, and I guess it was important so that they could all get behind Barry and forgive him, especially his best friend Cisco. Stein getting to know his daughter after some convincing from Caitlin was sweet, and I wonder how that will affect the show going forward given that they’re sure to head to another time. I like that Oliver managed to get Kara mad in a way we really haven’t seen, and of course they ended up making up and bonding. The moments I enjoyed most in this episode were the comic ones, particularly Mick and Sara agreeing that the new president is hot.
