The Legends are back on ‘Legends Of Tomorrow’ – third season – still as funny as ever. I for one have missed the shenanigans of the band of misfits gracing my screen. Considering how the shows in the Arrowverse have grown in complexity and story, LOT has been good, especially in its sophomore season. So, you can imagine why I’m happy.
The season three premiere spends a lot of time with Julius Caesar. A pleasant surprise considering how last season ended. The speed with which the time paradox cliffhanger was resolved was alarming, but it made sense. Rip Hunter had spent five years building a new time order, called The Time Bureau, but in ordinary time he was gone for only 15 minutes. Haha! The episode showed how The Legends adjust to ordinary lives after rejection from Rip, because he said they were non qualified to time ride now, and how they try to fit into the new world Rip has created. I enjoyed it.
So far, no central villain has been introduced, but news report gossip it’ll have something to do with Amaya in Zambesi, Africa. PS: Amaya has returned to her timeline in 1942.
One thing this episode got right was spiking my emotions, I was naturally anxious, afraid, thinking how the world would be if Julius Caesar knew too much about the future to effect a change of it for himself. Luckily, it was a one episode plot, and history was preserved and the future untampered with. Excellento! The premiere also gave us what could be shots of Sarah fighting side-by-side another female, something we haven’t seen since her time on Arrow.
I really enjoyed the episode, and I hope this season surpasses the second – I really enjoyed the second season. Welcome back Legends. Welcome back Waverider. Here’s to hoping Mick Rory and Sarah get it off this year… they’ve got mad chemistry!
DC’ Legends of Tomorrow airs on a new timeslot at 9p.m., Tuesdays on The CW.
