What I’m Watching: Legends of Tomorrow

Legends of Tomorrow: Season 4, Episode 13 “Egg MacGuffin” (B-)

Things are getting a bit silly now, as if they weren’t already, though I guess it’s important to recognize the power of demons in being able to sway those on the margins of society. Gary has been this show’s go-to punching bag for every other character, and being offered back his nipple by someone who was validating him has now transformed him from a harmless nuisance to a vessel that Neron can likely use even more effectively and destructively than Ray. Nate took quite a beating after his Indiana Jones-inspired time date with Zari, and that was the perfect opportunity for them to finally kiss after so much buildup. It was funny to watch Sara try so hard to read the book for book club, ultimately settling on listening to it sped up while running on the treadmill, and she was the one who had come closest to actually reading it. I’m glad that Ava is most set on protecting humanity and was up for bringing Nora onto the team officially, which is a bit questionable given her previous illegal and even murderous behavior, but she seems to have been completely rehabilitated as a character. Charlie posing as artist Rebecca Silver was entertaining, and while I’m not sure that Mick being revealed as the truest feminist author there is supports any sort of modern ideals, it was still fun to watch and to see him reveal his softer side. This was the first mission that the two of them seemed to be truly invested, which is something.
