IT'S LEGENDS O'CLOCK AGAIN! Somehow, each episode of this season keeps getting better and better! Holy sh*t! I feel like I’m at Season 3 level of Legends of Tomorrow! Are we finding a new glorious peak on our favorite mess of a show??? Let’s get into this newest episode and discuss!
After last week’s MARVELOUS 100th ep, it’s back to furthering the plot of the season! Still stuck in the 1920’s, and on the run, Avalance (I’m gonna count them as one when it’s valid, aight? :D), Zari Tarazi, Nate, Behrad, and Gary are still racing to get to New York. And, well… They are still on the run since Avalance are wanted for being the BULLET BLONDES BABY LETS GOO!
*ahem* anyways, so they are on the run and, of course, had to end up in 1920’s Chicago this ep! Iconic!!
They seem to have a simple plan: buy three train tickets, have Avalance hide out in Constantine’s (Zari’s??) pocket dimension, and get to New York no problem! Whelp, as always, there’s not only one problem, but two problems- Gary spent too much of their money tipping people (agh a great cause Gary but not the time!) and Ava and Sara are too recognizable as The Bullet Blondes, especially with robot Hoover right on their tail. Time for some bad wigs and some frantic running!
They find a door they think they can put the key into their handy dandy pocket dimension, but, oops, it's the door to a speakeasy, and Mr. Eddie needs that password before they can go in!
Of course, the password is password. Once the Legends are in, we see and hear a GLORIOUS trumpet player playing BEAUTIFULLY and Behrad joins him with some solid guitar playing. I am INVESTED IN THIS!!
Don’t think we forgot our other Legends though! Astra, Spooner, and GIDEON (bless) are on a train trying to get to New York still. They end up smuggling themselves onto the train successfully after a kind woman covers for them not having tickets.
Sara and Ava are trying to think of a new plan on how to get their kids (let's be real, the other Legends are their kids) and themselves to New York. Not only are they on the run still, but… the public thinks they are sisters??!?! Oh god. Sapphics, if you’ve ever dated another woman, you might know this horror.. I know I do D:
Sara comes up with a good starting plan to make some money: sell some of the never-ending booze from the pocket dimension to Eddie, our new friend who runs the speakeasy, and hope it’s a great turnout for the night! Well, good news folks: it's a fantastic turnout, and a great time for Zari and Eddie to bond.
Back with our two future captains and their child???, Astra, Spooner, and Gideon are still on the train. They’ve now not only learned Maude is in a band, but that she has a terrible manager, and Astra is hell-bent on fixing that. With Astra’s encouragement, Maude fires her manager, and Astra takes over. Do you feel the Mama Bear Astra vibes, peeps??? Oh, just you wait! Unwittingly, our group of three ends up tangling themselves up in a performance with Maude that night- they’ll have to wait the next morning for the train. Isn’t it just a beautiful coincidence?
It’s the end of the night and the other Legends head off to their pocket dimension for the night, all comfy and cozy. But Eddie, on the other hand.. Not so comfy and cozy. The mobsters who allowed Eddie to rent out the space heard that he got another supplier for alcohol, and well, they aren’t happy. They beat him and put him out of the speakeasy for working with The Bullet Blondes and, unfortunately, Eddie completely blames the Legends for this. Well, Legends screw things up, but they screw them up for the better, right?? Zari reminds the team that they are obligated to make this better, and thus Zari brings Eddie into the pocket dimension and tells him “guess what? I’m going to throw you the biggest fundraiser of the season! You’re getting a Zari party!”
And you know what the main event of the night is about to be??
The greatest show from The Bullet Blondes, of course!
AVALANCE PERFORMANCE LET'S GO GAYS, LET'S GO!
As our group of three helps Maude get ready for her performance that night, they meet Maude’s boyfriend, who just happens to be a mobster that Astra knew in hell. Astra KNOWS things can’t end well for Maude if she doesn’t leave the man, and Gideon confirms it when she recounts Maude’s homicide. With some reluctance from Spooner, they all agree to help Maude get away from this man.
The rest of the team is getting ready to party and, while Zari runs around trying to make sure every detail is right, Nate and Gary trade-off call-outs: Nate tells Gary that he's attracted to Zari because he likes women who can boss him around and wreck him (honestly, a mood), while Gary reminds Nate that he continues to put himself in relationships that “can’t go anywhere”. I live for how ridiculous and real Legends makes their characters!
This whole ep is about to pay off in the best way y’all, here we go! Just as the party is about to start with The Bullet Blondes, Astra and Spooner successfully get Maude to leave her abusive boyfriend, while Gideon fills in for her performance. Remember how I said that you could watch this episode for the music alone? Here’s the main course for your ears my friends- Gideon is singing 20’s music and I CAN’T BELIEVE IT! We found out she could sing last episode, but this is a whole new level!
It’s time to PARTY and we now have the main course for your eyes too-
THE BULLET BLONDES PERFORMANCE! LET'S GO GAYS, LET'S GO, FRONT ROW!
Okay, so, in between my hyperventilating and this PERFECTION of a performance, robot Hoover is STILL chasing the team (I know, I almost forgot too) and, well, he’s caught up. Nate and Gary try to fight him off, but they get stuck fighting his goons, while robot Hoover sneaks into the party. But guess what??? The party will NOT be stopped!
This entire action sequence is magnificent and, y’all, it ended in the PERFECT gay-as* Legends fashion-
I’m on the floor y’all and I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to get up.
Between the hotness of that entire performance and scene, and Astra, Spooner, and Gideon being a total family in of themselves, I don’t think this episode could’ve been any better.
As the episode is about to end, Astra, Spooner, and Gideon learn that they are in the same area as the other Legends, and they RACE to try to catch them in time!
But of course, they don't catch them in time. The other Legends are on the train to New York- well, Gary is, while he carries the rest of the team in the key to the pocket dimension. Zari Tarazi decides it’s time for Zari Tomaz to come out of the totem to help the team figure out what to do with robot Hoover, and well… it’s clear she also needs to have a talk with Nate as well.
And that’s it folks- we got some Zari Tomaz time coming up!! Woohoo!! Honestly, hoping that Nate and Zari mutually agree to break up. I don’t hate them as a ship, but Gary was kinda on the nose in this episode… Nate and Zari haven’t been working. Maybe they will figure it out though, who knows!
Are you still alive after all the WOMEN in this episode??? I’m not! This is all being typed by someone listening to my ghost! What do you think is going to happen next episode? Come yell at me about it on Twitter @FriendlyNBHDBi!
