Legends of Tomorrow is a show displaying absolute confidence as it heads toward its mid-season finale. This week featured the absolute insanity of Hank (Tom Wilson) singing some James Taylor to lull a minotaur to sleep and next week will see the team facing some killer dolls. At least, that what we’re gleaning from the preview.
Presumably, this is part one of the show’s two-part finale, which will pit the team against puppets at some point. The switch from dolls to puppets makes sense and, perhaps, whatever is possessing the dolls will find puppets are a more natural fit.
In the meantime, it’s getting harder to get a read on Hank. The Project Hades call seemed so menacing, but this week’s episode saw him mostly concerned with his budget and his relationship with Nate (Nick Zano). It also, oddly, established that Nate will not be returning to the Waverider anytime soon and we hope that does not mean Zano is also headed out the door. He and Nate helped pushed the series away from the serious tone of the first season to its current format: which allows for so much silliness. But I suppose part of Legends strength is its ability to find new misfits.
Hopefully, Nora (Courtney Ford) will get to transfer out of that cell at some point as she seems like a good fit for the team. She’s damaged, but with a good heart; and there are only so many ways to explore that while she’s stuck in the prison facility. That said, the bonding with Ava (Jes Macallan) and Mona (Ramona Young) was often more interesting than the minotaur plot and I’d love to see Nora earn Ava’s trust.
