What I’m Watching: Legends of Tomorrow

Legends of Tomorrow: Season 3, Episode 16 “I, Ava” (B+)

We knew some big reveal about Ava’s past was coming when Rip had Gideon delete her file a few weeks ago, but I’m not sure why it was supposed to be such a big secret that she couldn’t know and that Sara couldn’t find out since it seemed to go over with both of them much better than it could have. Sara quickly deduced that the people playing Ava’s parents were actors, and their visit to 2213 demonstrated just how commonplace Ava’s face was. It was nice to see Sara and our Ava work together to take out all of her clones, and this may even be a positive step in their reconciliation after a breakup that clearly wasn’t good for either of them. Things with Mallus went considerably more poorly, as Nate and Wally briefly teamed up with Kuasa only to have her double-cross them to protect her grandmother and then return to sacrifice herself when she saw that Amaya was in trouble and at risk of being killed by Mallus in Nora’s body. It was strange to see Dahrk and Nate bond over his affinity for his daughter and his desire not to lose her to a demon, and I’m curious if we’ll ultimately see him teaming up with the Legends against Mallus as the season comes to a close. This show does like to cover diversity, and therefore showing Zari trying to observe Ramadan with Mick constantly offering her pork was informative and entertaining, resulting in an unexpected bond that doesn’t quite leave them seeing eye-to-eye, but comes as close as it could for these two.
