Legends of Tomorrow Season 1 Episode 8
“Night of The Hawk”
The team tracks Savage to a small town in Oregon during the 1950s. Upon arrival, they discover there have been a recent string of murders and they suspect Savage is involved. Professor Stein and Sara go undercover at a psychiatric hospital, where Savage is working as a doctor, to find out his plan. While there, Sara meets a nurse named Lindsay and sparks fly. Meanwhile, Ray and Kendra pretend to be a married couple to gain the neighborhood's trust, but an interracial couple in the '50s isn't something that goes unnoticed. Soon, Savage is at their door.
The team travels back to 1958 where the trail for Savage leads. Team splits up to investigate missing people which they believe is the result of Savage. While pretending to be a married couple Ray and Kendra learn their neighbor is Savage, and Sara and Stein learn that he has a restrictive wing in a mental hospital.
The team learns fast that Savage has been performing experiments on trying to create himself a army of Hawk People. With Jax being captured by the local Sherif and has the same experiments done to him its up to Stein to find a cure.
With the setting being 1958, Legends of Tomorrow didn’t shy away from the issue of the time. Obviously touching on the issues with Bi Racial couples and racism. For a comic book show this was done in a way that showed the ridiculousness of the time but without taking away from the main purpose of the show.
Another amazing performance from Stein, stealing every scene he was in and at the same time bring Sara to another level. We also got a little blow back from the ending of the last episode as Jax’s takes issue with Snart removing Rory from the team. This was an issue through out the episode only to have Snart being the hero and saving Jax.
By far the most interesting part of the show has to be the ending with the team being split apart due to Chronos jumping on board the Waverunner and time jumping. Where does this leave the team and how will they come back together?
This would have been a great Halloween Episode, just my own opinion. I give this episode Two Thumbs Up. Let us know what your thoughts of the episode are and leave your comments below.
