What I’m Watching: Legends of Tomorrow

Legends of Tomorrow: Season 5, Episode 3 “Miss Me, Kiss Me, Love Me” (B)

I liked that this episode started with a longer opening featuring shots of each of the characters we know best, though the content of this hour was a bit on the silly side, which I don’t always love. It was jarring to hear Constantine slip into an American accent to pretend to be an old-school private eye, while Sara was the bait and Ray got the chance to be the one honest cop left after making a friend who turned out to be deeper in with the mob than any of the others he had met earlier. It’s clear that Ava needs more of a sense of purpose than she currently has, and no one was nearly as entertained by her distracting musical performance as she was. Sara finds her endearing at least, and hopefully she’ll work to give her a more substantial role on the team. I’m never overly fond of hell-centric episodes, but at least the Bugsy connection made it more interesting. After the episode-ending revelation Nate got about Zari’s existence, I didn’t expect us to meet a different version of her right away, and certainly not in the form of an airheaded social media star. Fortunately, she was smarter than she appeared, and managed to piece together that her stalker Nate wasn’t actually a professor. Behrad wasted no time in bringing her on board the Wave Rider, and it’s hard to know what will happen next. I keep thinking that Sara and Ray should remember her, but I guess not since that was altered at Heyworld not as a result of the crisis. Also, where the hell is Charlie? Is she coming back? I certainly hope so.
