What I’m Watching: Legends of Tomorrow

Legends of Tomorrow: Season 4, Episode 12 “The Eggplant, the Witch and the Wardrobe” (B-)

This episode wasn’t as enticing for me since I enjoy the team getting dressed up and traveling to new places that did really exist in history, and Sarah journeying through Ava’s purgatory of superstores and life decisions just doesn’t really hold a candle to it. I’ve never been as fond of the fate-related or demonic elements of this show, but those remain front and center thanks to the very predictable final scene which found Ray as the new host for Neron, whistling knowingly. It seemed too easy for Nora to succumb to the influence of Neron, but then Ray had to go and mess up the plan she and Constantine hatched to scare him out of his body and get rid of him for good. There are still four episodes left this season, and so Neron couldn’t be gone just yet. Nate turning into steel to stop his father’s prized idea from being destroyed was perfectly orchestrated so that he could destroy his cell phone just in time to not see the text from Zari, and I think it’s about time the two of them got together since they’re evidently both interested. I thought for a moment that Mikey T was played by the same actor who plays Mikey the construction worker on “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” but that was not the case. Ava and Sarah obviously have many differences in opinion that they’ll have to get through, but at least they’ve surmounted a few of them for now and gotten back to a relatively good place.
