What I’m Watching: Legends of Tomorrow

Legends of Tomorrow: Season 4, Episode 10 “The Getaway” (B-)

There’s no denying that this episode was fun and stylized, but I’m not sure I’m loving the direction and silliness of this season at this point. The truth bug flying around and being swallowed by each of the legends despite their best efforts was hard to take seriously, and it felt all too convenient every time they said something they really didn’t want to say. It was funny to open with Nixon admitting freely that he was indeed a crook, triggering everyone to realize that there was definitely something amiss. I’m not too happy that Mona is becoming a regular player, though I guess her ability to hulk out, now that it’s in the open, might prove useful if the legends need brute force on their side. Nate was totally oblivious to the fact that his dad was smarter than he gave him credit for, and it was nice to see Hank opt to trust his son and embrace his trust of the legends rather than continue mindlessly serving Neron. That bonding should have been fair warning that Hank wasn’t long for this world, and it was quite brutal to watch the life literally sucked out of him. I’m happy that Nora has been brought back in after being ignored while in Time Bureau custody for a while, and I do hope that she’ll be able to talk her way out of this mess that totally looks like it’s her fault. And Ava better get back to being in charge since Neron has a great opportunity to take over the Time Bureau in the aftermath of its acting director’s demise.
