Legends of Tomorrow S6E2 Review – Secret Sauce
Never ask what's in the secret sauce. Never. It never ends well and you're never going to want to know the answer. As always, what makes Legends of Tomorrow so good is that it's able to be absolutely ridiculous, while also having serious moments. Sure it's easy to focus on the ridiculous things like the not-Mothra Mothra (complete with Godzilla roar), the not-so-subtle shots at McDonalds or Sara & Gary following a dog on an alien planet with a scarf. But there are other things that actually connect to the ongoing themes and story on the show:
- Nate has actually been really enjoyable this season. Nate is at his best when he's not just blindly following behind his latest love. He actually seems content and accepts what's happened to Zari and that just makes for a better character. Also, he's a good character to be the number 2 to Ava and remind her that it's okay to not be okay with Sara being gone
- Ava's actually becoming a good Captain because she's leaning into the disorganization of the legends and recognizing that that is what makes them work. This is what Sara wanted her to understand last season and she's doing it. Also, as a whole, the Legends have been pretty competent so far this season and part of that is that Ava is leaning into their strengths
- Sara has always been special but it seems we might be getting more information on that and why Gary was told that she was the one to capture
- Spooner is this season's misfit that is joining the Legends and well, can't argue with her plan: Save Sara and shoot as many aliens as possible. We can work with that
We don't know where this season is going but we're all on board for whatever it is.
