What I’m Watching: Legends of Tomorrow

Legends of Tomorrow: Season 4, Episode 14 “Nip | Stuck” (B-)

I can give this episode the most credit for its clever title and for Ava’s casual coining on the phrase “nip-notized” to describe the “Gary is all the man we need” effect. It’s not always a good idea for these characters to act unlike themselves, but in this case, it was worthwhile to see Ava and Nora fall under his nip-spell and then get knocked out of it when Mona’s Wolfie bashed their heads together. For the first time, Mona managed to conjure up her alternate personality at just the right moment, though now it appears she’s been taken prisoner by Neron, Gary, and Tabitha the fairy godmother. I wasn’t impressed by Neron’s trip back in time with Constantine to show him how his ancestor was responsible for creating a rift between humans and magical creatures, and I’d like to hope that the focus on Neron means that season five won’t deal as much with Constantine and all these spells. I like that Mick and Sara started to argue after he made the call for Gideon to fire, and that they reminisced and acknowledged that the two of them and Ray were the only originals left. I do like the team as it stands right now, especially with Nate and Zari finally getting together and Charlie having a blast. Going into hell to rescue Constantine is sure to be a dark journey, but if there’s anyone who can do it, it’s this crew. It will certainly be messy, but they’re up for the job.
