What I’m Watching: Legends of Tomorrow

Legends of Tomorrow: Season 4, Episode 5 “Tagumo Attacks!!!” (B+)

This was an episode where silliness prevailed over all. It’s always interesting to me to see who stays on the ship and sits out a particular mission. Having Charlie sort of volunteer to go on the latest one worked out decently, though the legend who ended up being most useful was a very surprising choice. I did like that the demon wasn’t the monster that was attacking Tokyo but the book that brought its artist’s stories to life. Mick being an author has always been a strange subplot, but here it ended up saving the day, with him being accepted as the new author of the book. His swashbuckling heroine was quite the character, and he wrote quite the happy ending for himself. Ava coming over to Nate’s home for Thanksgiving was a recipe for disaster, and it still doesn’t make sense to me that Nate was the one who had to go help the eternally hapless Gary contain the hangry prisoners instead of her. I was pretty excited to hear Hank make what I sincerely hope won’t be the last “Back to the Future” reference, suggesting that they make like a tree and leave. He’ll obviously be sticking around for a while since a renewed relationship with his son isn’t the only thing he’s trying to accomplish, moving forward also on the nefarious-sounding Project Hades. Nora helping Constantine was merely the precedent for what I hope will be her repentance in the form of joining the legends.
