What I’m Watching: Legends of Tomorrow (Season Finale)

Legends of Tomorrow: Season 4, Episode 16 “Hey, World!” (B-)

Well, that’s a wrap on a weird season of this show that was definitely entertaining even if I wasn’t so taken with its focus. I like the solution that they came up with to have the many magical creatures who were aboard the Wave Rider be housed in Hayworld, and it was fun to see Sara, Nate, and Gary dress up as Supergirl, Green Arrow, and the Flash in an ad. I had seen that photo in an article about the upcoming Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover and thought it was from another world in which they had different identities. The appearance of the Monitor in the audience was definitely indicative of something, and as long as it’s not hell on earth, I’m fine with that. Discovering that to be Neron’s goal made some sense, and it looks like Constantine’s brief ally may now cause many problems for him. Finding Ray in hell playing Jenga with a much nicer Vandal Savage was quite an amusing fate, and it’s good to see that everyone managed to survive. I don’t quite understand or buy that the power of song managed to revive Nate after he got the chance for a bonding moment with his father, but I guess on this show death is relatively negotiable. The legends are starting to couple up, with Nate and Zari official and Ray very happy to see Nora upon his return to the land of the living. I’m still up for more of this show, and I’m hopeful that we’ll get a chance to see the legends during the fall crossover before their show returns during mid-season.

Season grade: B
Season MVP: Maisie Richardson-Sellers as Charlie
