Legends of Tomorrow - Lucha de Apuestas television review

Legends of Tomorrow returns from hiatus with an episode that gets too serious for its own good (forgetting that the show is best when in joyously embraces the absurdity of its premise). There’s certainly some fun to be had as the Legends travel to 1961 to Mexico in search of the fugitive Konane (Darien Martin) who is working as a Mexican wrestler, but the episode bogs down at times with the relationship drama between Sara (Caity Lotz) and Ava (Jes Macallan) who work at cross purposes for much of the episode, secret conspiracies inside the Time Bureau that foreshadow future heartache and betrayal, and tragic love. Even the closing twist involving Moana (Ramona Young) is depressing as there are certainly no happy endings for anyone this week.

Supergirl - All About Eve television review

Lex Luthor (Jon Cryer) may not appear in “All About Eve,” but the episode deals primarily with the fallout from his escape. Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) enlists the help of Alex (Chyler Leigh) and Lena (Katie McGrath) in a hunt for Eve (Andrea Brooks) who they believe can lead them to Lex. The trouble for Supergirl is Lex has already thought of that and uses Eve as bait to lure Supergirl to the time and place of his choosing to enact the next part of his plan. Despite the discovery of Lena’s secret experiments, the episode doesn’t further the rift between Lena and the Maid of Might as the two find common ground (which is a good thing because Supergirl is going to need all the help she can get). Has Lena’s villainous turn been shelved for good this time? Hopefully.

Legacies - There's Always a Loophole TV review

The First Season finale of Legacies features an invasion of the Salvatore Boarding School for the Young & Gifted by Triad Industries, which could only have been executed by the safeguard plans already put in place by Alaric (Matthew Davis) and a big hero moment for Hope (Danielle Rose Russell) in leaving the school’s protection to her friends and rescuing Landon (Aria Shahghasemi) from Malivore. Both look to have large implications on the show’s sophomore season.

The case involves a string of high-end robberies and murder, the true motives for Will and Frankie only discover after going undercover as part of the crew. However, when someone betrays them Frankie is all to eager to point to the doe-eyed Emma (Lovibond) whose chemistry with her partner Frankie has trouble processing.

FBI - Apex television review

The focus of the latest episode of FBI is split as Maggie (Missy Peregrym) and OA (Zeeko Zaki) hunt for a serial killer who has drugged, raped, and murdered ten women. While half of the episode focuses on the investigation, the other half centers around the Deputy Mayor of New York (Sandrine Holt) getting in the FBI’s way in order to manufacture another obstacle for the Maggie and company to overcome. Under the premise of not wanting to hurt the city’s tourist economy, coming off like the Mayor in Jaws who thought it was great for vacationers to swim with a killer shark, the unseen Mayor makes (some pretty outrageous) demands of the team that nearly allow the killer to claim another victim.
