Synopsis: The Legion of Doom rewrites history after obtaining the Spear of Destiny, potentially changing the Legends forever.
Review: Things get messed up in this episode as the Legends have all had their memories erased and are subservient to the whims of the Reverse Flash who has used the Spear to mould his idealised world.
It soon becomes apparent that the other members of The Legion of Doom are not as united as you’d think. Malcolm Merlyn and Damian Dhark are not happy with the arrangement and use the help of Leonard Snart to try and sabotage reverse flashes plans.
There is some great stuff in this such as seeing Mick Rory and Leonard Snart working as a team once again, but also seeing how much Mick has grown in terms of his eventual realisation that he is respected more by the legends than he ever was by Snart and tries to win their trust back when the opportunity presents itself.
We see the death of Vixen in this episode by the hands of Snart, which only serves to further enrage Mick given that she seemed to be the one Legend that had any kind of faith in him.
The legends all wake up from their respective delusions accept for Stein who is still under the thumb of reverse flash.
The things that made this episode stand out for me was the Legion Of Doom and their respective infighting. Also Dominic Purcell’s performance as Mick Rory really felt like the glue that held this episode together.
We had a fun flash of Felicity Smoak running around as a hero at the start of the episode, but it was far to brief for us to become overly invested to care to much about it.
I look forward to seeing how everything is resolved in next weeks season 2 finale.
- The Good: The Legion Of Doom and Mick Rory
- The Bad: Felicity Smoak hero moments were fun, but there wasn't enough for the audience to become invested in.
