Goofs

The Legends travel to 1862 because of a distress call from a Time Pirate that has crashed. They find the ship... get sidetracked by a whole lot of changing history stuff... and then leave. Without ever finding the Time Pirate- or even looking for him, after the initial capsule burning. Which is especially ironic considering the entire episode is dedicated to the concept of "staying on mission, don't stray from why you are here" theme. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Martin Stein: Are you homesick?
Jefferson 'Jax' Jackson: You checking up on me Gray?
Dr. Martin Stein: Given what you've witnessed, what you've endured, would that really be so bad? You know you just witnessed the very worst of humanity. We share a psychic connection, yet I still can't even begin to fathom what you must be feeling. Must be like your heart is broken.
Jefferson 'Jax' Jackson: Yeah, it is. But I saw something in those people's eyes I didn't expect to see. I saw hope, I saw dignity. Those men and women? They were treated worse than animals, but they never let ...

Legends vs The Walking Dead
4 November 2016 | by ThomasDrufkeSee all my reviews

For so long I have been hoping for this show to find its way. I wasn't entirely sure how it was going to do that, however, especially with Vandal Savage's presence overtaking a lot of the fun ideas the first season presented. But with him gone and a much better team overall this year, Legends is finally beginning to feel like the mindlessly entertaining show we all had hoped for when they announced it nearly two years ago.

Tonight saw 3 separate pairings that were executed surprisingly well, including Ray & Stein, Jax & Vixen, and Sara & Nate. Perhaps more so than any other Legends episode, this one took its time and ended up flowing very well. Of course, the episode was fronted by the promise that zombies would be taking over Confederate Civil War Zombies. That was more than enough for me to get amped. And as goofy as that premise may seem, the show took did a good job of balancing the craziness with a nice underlying message. Plus, the fact that this episode came Halloween week made it all the more fitting.

Being that it's Civil War era, Jax and Vixen had a difficult time getting around without getting questioned or beaten, but this also served as a nice time for both of them to see the horrors of not only this time period, but the lesson that sometimes you can and should change history. I was surprised the CW tackled such a huge issue as slavery in an episode, but I found most of that material to be fittingly chilling. Well done CW, well done.

Sara and Nate had to confront Ulyssses S. Grant about the horrors him and his soldiers were facing. It was definitely the least memorable of the 3 stories, but Sara had a necessary leadership arc with helpful advice from Grant. As well as Nate having to do another heroic and gutsy thing taking down a bunch of zombies and in turn winning the battle. It's also just fun to see different combinations of Legends share scenes together as Sara and Nate did tonight.

Last but not least was the most Halloween-ish thing about the episode as Ray & Stein were forced to deal with a zombified Mick inside the Waverider. While it wasn't clear exactly how that situation resolved so quickly, the very fact that this entire sequence felt like an installment in the Alien franchise, made it worth while. For me, this was the most fun Legends has been since they went to future Star City last season. Let's just hope they can continue this once the Legion of Doom finally make their way on the show officially.

+Zombies on Legends. Count me in.

+3 separate arcs each worked in their own way

+Some chilling slave material

+Grant's advice to Sara

+Alien on the Waverider

8.6/10
