What I’m Watching: Legends of Tomorrow

Legends of Tomorrow: Season 7, Episode 12 “Too Legit to Quit” (B+)

This episode felt a whole lot like disbanding the team and heading towards its end, and it turns out I was completely wrong about what I thought was this show’s secure future. Typically, it’s been renewed by this point in its run each year, but the less than six-week gap between seasons six and seven has made it feel like this had been going nonstop for a while. I also had no idea that the next episode is the last of this season, and while none of the CW’s shows have been renewed yet, this might well be it. It didn’t feel right that everyone would just agree to retire and never see each other again, but it’s not clear how they’d be able to reach each other even if they do all have those duplicated keys. Gary getting jettisoned by the evil Gideon after the good Gideon confessed that Alun was a robot feels like a move that won’t be permanent given his likelihood of survival as an alien in the temporal zone, something that both Gideons should have known he’d be able to do. Gwyn killing the robot and vowing to save Alun is an interesting development, one that I hope will somehow unite the team for an epic finale. I do hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of this show, and the fact that there’s no word at all suggests that it will in all likelihood be renewed, which I’d be happy to see, even if its format may be new given recent plot points.
