What I’m Watching: Legends of Tomorrow

Legends of Tomorrow: Season 5, Episode 4 “Slay Anything” (B)

I probably would have appreciated this episode a bit more if I was a fan of teen horror movies, though I do get the appeal of sending up 1990s fashion and music. I’m intrigued to know more about Ava’s side gig as a serial killer podcaster, which had a bit too excited about going back to the site of a number of killings. Their initial efforts weren’t successful, and I’m glad that they finally did what I’ve always thought would be a good idea, to go back further to change history before they screwed it up again. Nora getting summoned as Freddy’s fairy godmother to make his wishes come true was convenient, and she was extremely useful in assuring that his dance performance wasn’t upended by the angry bullies trying to get their way even after their initial plot was foiled. The twist that his mother became the killer was unexpected, and Behrad showed up to save the day after Zari cluelessly got in a limo with high school students going home from prom. She did have one flash to her old life when she used the computer to hack Gideon’s locked door, and having her stick around should be a good thing for the team overall. I’m glad that Charlie was hiding out at Constantine’s old home and not gone from the show, though whatever’s going on out there isn’t good. Mick being recognized by an old flame was fun, and I enjoyed his clarification at the end that she was in fact feeling his gun.
