What I’m Watching: Legends of Tomorrow

Legends of Tomorrow: Season 4, Episode 7 “Hell No, Dolly!” (C+)

It’s not as if this show is too much at risk of being cancelled, so wasting time on unfortunate demonic detours like this one aren’t nearly as lamentable as with other shows like “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” that are swiftly remembering their finales. I’m really not too big on crazy killer dolls, and I’d rather not comment on any part of that here other than to say it was weird to use the term “dybbuk” in the same scene as a doll wielding a knife. The Professor Stein doll scene was particularly odd. What I did enjoy more was the building camaraderie between Ava and Mick, which is probably just tolerance of each other more than anything else after Sara tried to set them up so that they could play nice. I love that Ava is secretly obsessed with serial killers, something that came in very handy in this hour as they went to search for an unleashed killer in New Orleans. As Zari tries to monitor the B-team’s activities and Ray experiments with facial hair, it’s good to see friendships forming between the likes of Charlie, who now may be able to shape-shift once again, and Constantine, who spent the hour mourning his lover who he had to send to hell along with a demon. I don’t know what to make of the episode’s ending with everyone frozen in time and Zari apparently turned into a doll? Who would have thought that Charlie would be the one to have to save the day?
