What I’m Watching: Legends of Tomorrow

Legends of Tomorrow: Season 6, Episode 10 “Bad Blood” (B-)

I did not particularly care for Constantine’s adventure with Spooner, and that’s partially because he’s far from my favorite character and I’d rather this show focused more on superpowers than on magic, though I do admit that they’re not all that different in concept. The notable takeaway, of course, is that Constantine didn’t succeed in finding what he was looking for, and when Spooner tried to point that out to him, he transfixed her so that she won’t be able to tell anyone about it. That’s sure to have negative consequences down the line, but of course we may not see those right away. The vampire that Constantine casually invited into his house seems to have put him in a more precarious position than the one that he tricked her into entering, and that’s another can of worms that will surely follow Constantine and the legends. Aboard the ship, I enjoyed the antics of Mick being pregnant and having to be told by his daughter that he’s not making responsible choices. His resistance to even being examined by Gideon was the first real obstacle to making sure he was doing what he needed to, and I have a feeling that he and Lita are going to go on this baby journey together, which could be entertaining if decidedly a bit far-fetched since pretty much everything involving Mick is. I wondered whether Gary losing his glasses was a long-term thing and if actor Adam Tsekhman was leaving the show, but naturally it’s just another example of Gary being Gary, or in this case, being his alien self.
