What I’m Watching: Legends of Tomorrow

Legends of Tomorrow: Season 6, Episode 7 “Back to the Finale Part II” (B+)

This could have become a bit tedious if clones kept just killing clones, and I’m glad that, by all indications, that plotline has now been resolved and Sara made it back to the team. Bishop killing Sara as a response to her getting too agitated was a frustrating concept, and the idea that he could just regenerate any time he needed made him far too powerful, especially when he uploaded his consciousness to a digital platform that luckily they managed to fell and explode. The Ava clones proved to be quite useful, and even Gary did his part to help in the escape. Mick really has fallen hard for Kayla, and I hope that, even though I don’t need Bishop to stage an unexpected return, she’s out there somewhere and might find him again soon in her human form. Sara being part-alien is definitely an issue that will come up soon, but fortunately she is back home and that’s good enough for now. I like that the team tried to come up with a plan to save Sara from being abducted in the first place, one that got derailed quickly when an eyepatch-wearing Nate in Constantine’s coat came back from the future to tell them how horribly they had screwed up. Ava from that night realizing that they weren’t her legends and that they were up to no good was also very funny. It’s obviously an attitude that Sara also espouses, suggesting on that night that, if there had been an actual timeline problem, she’d just go back and fix it with her timeship later.
