What I’m Watching: Legends of Tomorrow

Legends of Tomorrow: Season 4, Episode 6 “Tender is the Nate” (B-)

This episode was fun, to be sure, but I’m not sure that this show is living up entirely to its potential. Nate’s dead is definitely taking on a more central role, getting very into their latest trip with a chance to meet his favorite author and then orchestrate a victory for the team in the unexpected form of a guitar performance to put the beast to sleep. I’m glad that Nate was able to get his dad on board with supporting the legends, though there was no mention of what we saw at the end of last week’s episode indicating more nefarious activities on his part. I did enjoy the overview of the legends and the egregious money that they spend putting together all of their antics, most of which I would have assumed were covered by Gideon creation rather than actual money. We didn’t get to hear any of the ensuing conversation, but I like that Mick identified himself as an author and was going to have a chat with a true literary legend I can’t imagine he had heard of previously due to his criminal past and likely lack of concentrated schooling. Sara tried to give Ava a birthday to remember before having to jet off to do damage control, but she ended up having a memorable day trapped with Mona and Nora is a truly inappropriate situation that led to a slight possibility of Nora soon being released and joining the legends, something I’m hoping is going to happen soon since she would be a helpful troublesome asset who would make even Charlie and Constantine seem like they fit.
