Warning Spoilers Ahead
He’s finally back. Ever since it was announced at SDCC that Snart would be joining the Legion I’ve been eagerly awaiting how the team would react and while it wasn’t all about Snart it gave Mick a chance to shine.
This week The Legends discover a way to destroy the Spear of Destiny but they need the help of J.R.R. Tolkien. Meanwhile, the Legion recruits Leonard Snart into their ranks and this causes Mick to rethink his role on the team.
I’ve felt that Mick has been underused this season so I was glad to see how substantial his role was this episode. He is right in his believe that the team doesn’t trust him and seeing him question his place was very interesting.
I was shocked when Mick actually betrayed the team and joined the Legion. This sets up a much more interesting conflict for the rest of the season.
My only negative of the episode is I felt like Mick was the only character who cared that Snart was back. I feel like Sara especially would have a visceral reaction to his return.
Snart returned in a great episode that focused on Mick and his place on the team. The only negative I can think of is that there should have been a more team-wide reaction to Snarts return. 8.6 out of 10.
Amaya’s conflict with the injured soldiers worked very well. I’m very curious to see what her role is going forward now that she knows her future.
If the Spear is so dangerous why did you assemble it in the first place?
