Legends of Tomorrow Review: Season 2 Episode 4 "Abominations"

Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 Episode 4

Victor Garber, Brandon Routh, Caity Lotz, Franz Drameh, Maise Richardson-Sellers, Nick Zano, Dominic Purcell, John Churchill, Warren Bell, Alex Barima, Dean S. Jagger

When the Legends discover a time Aberration in 1863, they find themselves fighting for survival during the Civil War with Confederate soldiers who have been turned into zombies. With the Civil War outcome hanging in the balance, Jax must participate in a daring mission by going to a slave plantation with Amaya. Meanwhile, Sara begins to feel the burden of the decisions she has to make as the leader, and Ray struggles to find his purpose on the team.

Final Thoughts:
It’s funny how this show is able jump from one storyline and inject something so very different when needed. This episode was exactly that, while the main story of Reverse-Flash and Damien Darhk was put to the side for an episode, we did get an episode worthy of Halloween. Yes, the legends had to go up against Zombies.

The episode put the legends up against many different scenarios, while Ray continued to struggle with his worth to the team. Professor stein had to deal with his now rational fear of zombies when Rory turned into a Zombie and started to terrorize the Waverider.

Also an interesting theme is being used during this season and was really touched upon in the 5th episode. Obviously with the show touching on time travel, there will be a need for the creators to touch on racial issues. This has been well done and really has set Jax apart in many ways from the rest of the characters, and he really has been one of the best parts of the show.

Episode’s like this don’t really leave much with suspense, before the show even ends we know that the Legends will succeed. This might be the only downfall to Legends of Tomorrow, but outside of this the episode itself was fun and exactly what we need. The best part of the episode has to be with Ray getting Snart’s Ice Gun, this will be a fun pair to watch going forward.
