During the Final showdown Rip decides to step and dual with Jeb Stillwater, While Rip ends the threat for the town the team ends up coming under attack by the bounty hunters.
This was one of my most anticipated episode due to the inclusion of Jonah Hex. I love the idea that this these CW shows have been able to include so many different DC Comics Characters. Johnathon Schaech does a fantastic job playing Jonah. It was also interesting that Jonah and Rip had a past together and now we have an idea about why Rip’s weapon looks like a six shooter.
with each time travel, the show puts the characters into different environments and I for one love it. It give the show the excitement that I used to get while watching Quantum Leap when I was younger.
This show didn’t really advance the story much, but this one wasn’t suppose to. The show was for the fans of DC Comics and we were introduced to another character in Jonah Hex. I love this universe, manly due to the fact that they are doing it right. Maybe its time for Zack Snyder to take some advice from Greg Berlanti and make the movies more like the shows.
I give this episode Two Thumbs Up, let us know what your thoughts were and leave you comments below.
