The Emerald Archer Returns
26 February 2016 | by ThomasDrufkeSee all my reviews

As up and down as the series has been, the last few episodes have been going in the right direction and ending up in Star City 2046 was a good way to keep the momentum going. The success of Legends can largely be attributed to the added fan base of Arrow and The Flash and I think in order to keep that fan base they may need to have these occasional crossovers every so often. It's already been a week of crossovers for CW as Diggle showed up on Flash, Vixen was introduced on Arrow, and now with Oliver on Legends. I also think Legends has been developing their characters better over the last few weeks that perhaps we will care enough about the characters on the show and won't need the appearances of Arrow or Flash. But for now, I loved this crossover, and would welcome a trip to future Central City.

I think about half the team knew Green Arrow's identity already, but whoever didn't, found out within seconds as Sara, Ray, and Rip spoiled it. Then again, everyone in Star City 2046 knew who Oliver was, including Slade Wilson's son, Grant Wilson, who took on his father's role as Deathstroke. Even though I thought Guggenheim said they couldn't use Slade anymore, it was nice having this be the central arc of the episode as Slade, Sara, and Ollie have quite the history. It really felt like I have was watching an extra episode of Arrow season 2 (easily the best season of any superhero show). Even Blake Neely used the same Deathstroke theme music to set the same mood.

I understand that this future isn't actually set and we won't ever truly see this future again, but it was interesting to hear about where all of the characters ended up. According to Ollie, everyone is gone. Either dead or left before Deathstroke's uprising. I'm still holding out hope that we get one more Slade arc on Arrow and it would be interesting to see if they took it in a similar direction to this episode. John Diggle apparently had a son, who now goes by the name Connor Hawke. Can this at all be an indication that he won't die on Arrow this season considering he hasn't had another child yet? Doubtful.

As far as the rest of the team goes, most of them took a back seat to Stephen Amell. Kendra was all of a sudden romantically sought after by Ray and Jax in what was pretty much the first hint of any romantic arcs happening on the show. I was glad to see that the conclusion to this story line actually made logical sense with Kendra deciding to not involve anyone in this hectic time. I mean just in the past few months she had a relationship with Cisco and sort of Carter hall, let's let her breathe first before we bring another love interest into her life. Or perhaps let her improve her fighting as well?

As this version of Star City was like "World War 3", Cold and Heatwave enjoyed their time being on top of the criminal world briefly. Cold came to his senses with the mission at hand but Heatwave seemed to take issue with that. From the preview for next episode it seems these issues come to the forefront with Mick taking his anger out on the team. The character has improved so much over the past few episodes that I would hate for him to take a big step back next week.

Sara and Rip also had their fair share of disagreements tonight in regards to the priorities of what the team should be focusing on. The way Rip was talking seemed to sound a whole lot like the mission to take out Savage will be the only mission each of them go on, at least on this show. Could this open the door for some of the characters to go back to Arrow or Flash in the future? I've always thought Sara works best alongside Oliver so perhaps the cast will rotate every season like the producers have been saying. Overall though, this was the best episode Legends has had to offer so far. The one-off performances from Joseph David-Jones as Connor Hawke and Jamie Andrew Cutler as Grant Wilson worked extremely well inside the devastated version of Star City. It's always great seeing Amell appear in this universe in a new way (that beard though). And it brought back memories of season 2 of Arrow. A job well done overall, now hopefully Legends can contain that momentum.

+Felt like season 2 of Arrow
