What I’m Watching: Legends of Tomorrow

Legends of Tomorrow: Season 3, Episode 3 “Zari” (B+)

I like that time travel on this show isn’t limited just to the past, and going to 2042 proved to be a real adventure for the legends. The Metahuman Act of 2021 seems like very bad news for anyone we know with powers, but fortunately that didn’t hinder their ability to try to get the job done. Gary is truly inept and is in good company with the legends, who, thanks to Ray, immediately revealed to Zari. Fortunately, this show is adding a new cast member to its regular roster, and that’s Tala Ashe as Zari, who, like a few of the legends, didn’t have the smoothest introduction to the group but should do just fine, especially since Mick likes her, which is no small feat. I think Amaya will be equally happy to have her on board, since Nate helping her hallucinate was a kind gesture but won’t do much for her in the long run. I’m pleased to report that Kuasa, the meta created by or summoned by the witch at the end of the last episode, is turning out to be a cool villain, capable of awesome manipulation of water to her advantage and able to hold her own in hand-to-hand combat with Sara. Is she the one who has just met an all-too-eager young Ray years earlier? That doesn’t seem like it’s going to play out well. Sara demonstrated her resilience in this episode with one hell of a performance in a game of chicken with Agent Sharpe.
