It’s the end of what has been a wonderful season – DC’s Legends of Tomorrow has been one of the most entertaining shows on air this season, and it didn’t disappoint with its season finale.
When the sophomore season of LoT premiered late 2016, many felt it was a waste of time mainly because of how messed up and all over the place its first season was. The only reason I continued with it was because of how awesome The Flash was: that was the reason I was willing to give it another shot, and I’m glad I did.
The Legends witnessed a lot of changes to effectively push the story forward. Rip had to vacate the position of captain, and Sarah became Captain Sarah; boy, did she make a good captain.
The villainous focus of the season was a band of men that made LoT’s mother shows awesome during their time there. We had the Legion of Doom – Malcom Merlyn, Damien Dahrk, and Eobard Thawne. All three men wanted something in common: to rewrite history; something only possible with the use of The Spear of Destiny. As expected, this mystery drags throughout the season, coming to a near halt towards the penultimate episode.
When the penultimate episode of the season began, all hope happened to be lost because the Legion of Doom had successfully rewritten history. Along the line, most of The Legends regain their memories and someone had the (brilliant but not so brilliant) idea of breaking the number one rule of time travel just to save themselves (The Legends); to redeem reality at least back to what we know it, the Legends have to revisit a time period they already have, damning the consequences (which turned out damning at the end).
There were a lot of things I loved about this season’s finale; in fact, there were lots of things I loved about the season. The Legends have turned out to be very entertaining to watch. Over their two years on air, things have been very intriguing.
After defeating the Legion of Doom, the Legends are faced with the new reality that their actions had borne – the whole of present day flooded with dinosaurs.
The cliffhanger of showing the repercussion of breaking time-travel’s number one rule as the infestation of dinosaurs in modern day is more than enough to keep we the viewers continuously anticipating the next season.
How will The Legends set things right? How will their actions affect the entire Arrowverse? These and many more are questions I can’t wait to see answered.
