In Review: Legends of Tomorrow – Nip/Stuck

When Sara hesitates to make a tough call, Rory steps up creating a wedge in the team.

Synopsis: When Sara hesitates to make a tough call, Rory steps up creating a wedge in the team. Meanwhile, Ava gives Gary the responsibility of handling the Bureau performance reviews for all the Agents.

Review: Neron’s plans are revealed, and it is down to Constantine to do his magic to try and fix things.

The Story

Picking up from where last week left off. Neron has given Gary his nipple back and placed him back at the time bureau with a renewed confidence.  As far as Constantine goes Neron has other uses for him such as using him to bait the Legends back to the ice age in order to get them out of the way so that he can use Constantine to help him get Tabitha out of hell.

The Acting

Matt Ryan steals the show this week by playing two versions of Constantine. One being his ancestor from the year 55 B.C.E. the cruel and calculating King Constantine who is responsible for driving a wedge between humans and magical creatures.  And of course regular Constantine. We get a great supporting performance from Brandon Routh who plays Neron who has taken over Ray Palmer’s body and banished him to hell.

We also get a fun performance from Adam Tsekhman who gets to show us a more confident version of Gary who has been possessed by a corrupted version of the nipple, which Neron has returned to him.

Overall

This was another fun episode, which advanced the story arc and revealed a large part of Neron’s plan to us.

The Legends arguing amongst themselves while trapped in the Ice Age made for some fun as Rory and Sara slowly come to recognize that they will be the only two originals left on board if they fail to get Ray back.

The scenes between Constantine and King Constantine are lots of fun and lead to the reveal of who Tabitha is at the close of the episode.

But the most fun is Gary being able to hypnotize the entire time Bureau with his nipple.
