Recap: 100th ep of Legends of Tomorrow!



IT HAPPENED NERDS, IT REALLY HAPPENED! Legends Of Tomorrow made it to 100 episodes and its 100th ep was the perfect celebration of the best show in the Arrowverse and one of the best superhero shows yet! Let’s get into it!


Those of us that keep us with behind-the-scenes stuff- we all KNEW this was going to be a Gideon-centered ep. It’s absolutely PERFECT for the 100th ep because, while Sara may be the last “OG Legend” left… she isn’t. Gideon has been there since the start as well and she’s seen, heard, and felt it all. Sara Lance may be the beating heart of the Legends, but a heart can’t beat without blood pumping to it. Gideon is the blood of the Legends!


We start off with Astra, Spooner, and Gideon back where they were last ep: attempting to travel to New York to catch up with the other Legends. As we saw last ep, Astra is basically Gideon’s mom now after “resurrecting her” but, well… she’s not really a great parent. Not yet, at least. She continues to try to order Gideon around, makes a big deal out of a pie, and tries to make Gideon get it for her even though she could get it herself??? Wasn’t really sure what the grounds for this were, but in the end, it was absolutely necessary to somehow have Gideon become overloaded and shut down. Once Gideon shuts down, Astra and Spooner hop into her mind to try to put it back together. See how they set this whole seeing Gideon’s memories up? It’s like, they actually found a reason for it to happen or something ;)

and Gideon keeps calling them captain??? Like??? Are they gonna take over the ship when this show.. Ends?! Oh my god im gonna cry

Also, if you missed the opening credits for this ep, go watch them right now, no other Arrowverse show could ever. WOW!

Back in the future, we see Bishop-last season's villain- hanging out with one of the early AVAs. He’s starting to remember stuff he shouldn’t, the things that happened with the Legends. Welp, guess we are getting a two-seasons villain peeps!

Hold up, is that Jax?!?! And they let Franz use his British accent on the show?? LIVING FOR IT! Of course, no matter how good with technology and Gideon the others can be, Jax is the only one that truly knows Gideon’s systems best. He tells Astra and Spooner that they have to put Gideon’s key memories back together- the ones that make her, her.


The first memory we see is a recent one, one that, time-wise, happened last season. After the Legends kidnapped Spooner, in hopes that she could help them find Sara, Ava sits with Spooner’s unconscious body in the med bay. She talks with Gideon about how, even if it’s the smallest chance in the universe, she HAS to do this. She has to take a chance on Spooner if it means she can have Sara back. Ava admits it’s not logical- LOVE is not logical.


And y’all, I’m already crying because you know what Gideon said right after that?

“I understand. I really miss Sara too.”

IM SOBBING!. AN ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE KNOWS WHAT LOVE FEELS LIKE AND UNDERSTANDS ITS VALUE EVEN THOUGH IT DEFIES LOGIC. AN ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND A CLONE ARE BONDING OVER THE PAIN OF LOVE. I AM CRYING IN THE CLUB YALL!


If you couldn’t already tell, I barely survived this ep y’all, and we are only 10 minutes in.


After this first key memory, Gideon is back online enough to be herself! At least, while she’s still in her own mind. How did THIS key memory do that? Well.. it was when Ava convinced Gideon love was more important than logic.


I’m sorry, I’m crying again. Moving on!


Gideon’s memories are popping up like jackrabbits now and Astra, Spooner, and now Gideon have to get all of them unlocked properly. They have to go WAY back to get them all- time to go back to Season 1 baby!

RAY! SNART! MY BABIES! LOOK AT THESE HUFFY AGGRESSIVE DORKS! I’VE MISSED THEM SO!

And then there’s Hawkman, coming in like a wrecking ball that not many have truly missed. (Sorry Hawkman fans, we’re getting a better version of him soon in the DCEU!)


AND THEN THERE'S SEASON 1 SARA LANCE MY PEEPS, GOD BLESS I AM FEELING MANY THINGS

“Which one of you threw that?” I DID MAAM IT WAS ALL MY FAULT BREAK MY ARM PLEASE

Astra and Spooner look onto the chaos between these OGs and it's hysterical hearing Astra judge Sara’s original costume and seeing how Gideon can’t remember these Legends yet.


The OG’s continue to all bicker and argue until Gideon pulls a major mom over them. Hearing them all immediately stop and go “Yes Ma’am” “Won’t happen again” brings me SO MUCH JOY!!! And I get even more joy from hearing Sara
