Legends of Tomorrow - Stressed Western TV review

Sara‘s (Caity Lotz) first mission back is to the Old West where the Legends search for an alien in the peculiar town of Fist City in 1891 where outlaw Levi Stapleton (Nic Bishop) has become sheriff and turned the town into a violence-free zone by controlling a giant space worm. While not getting too angry (an emotion that draws out the worm), the Legends work together to take down the sheriff, remove the alien, and return the town to normal. Sara initially hides her new alien makeup from the rest of the crew, but her ability to survive getting shot through the head turns out to be a pretty big clue something has changed with her captain. Other than her healing abilities, and sudden love of cherries, we don’t see much unusual behavior from Sara… at least not this week.

Legends of Tomorrow - Back to the Finale: Part II television review

Sara Lance (Caity Lotz) is dead. Well, sort of. It’s complicated. You see, on an alien world an evil scientist (Raffi Barsoumian) has cloned Sara and spliced in a little alien DNA as well. His plan is to create an army of hybrid Sara’s to conquer the galaxy. The clone, it turns out, isn’t so keen on that plan. As Sara works to escape, with the help of Rory (Dominic Purcell) and clones of her girlfriend, light years away her actual girlfriend grieves for her loss and her teammates prepare to do something stupid.

Legends of Tomorrow - The Ex-Factor television review

Legends of Tomorrow follows up a horror episode with a goofy story featuring the team battling an alien assassin to win the future’s most popular singing competition. Returning to her own time, the episode takes advantage of Zari‘s (Tala Ashe) celebrity who tricks the unstoppable alien with a fleet of invading warships behind him that the only way to win the planet is to win the competition, a competition run by her ex-boyfriend (Ryan Bell) who is more or less a walking s’more. “The Ex-Factor” has some fun lampooning reality-TV competitions, which are really game shows, while stealing bits from various current shows to create “Da Throne.”

Legends of Tomorrow - Meat: The Legends television review

The search for the missing Sara Lance (Caity Lotz) continues as the Legends track an alien to 1950s San Bernadino in the hopes that Spooner (Lisseth Chavez) can communicate with it and lead the team back to their missing captain. There’s strong horror vibes in the creepy “Meat: The Legends,” without ever capturing that old 50ss sci-fi B-movie vibe, as the search for the alien leads the team to a local burger joint and the secret sauce which turns out to be made from the secretions of a giant alien wasp gestating in a cocoon. The episode’s B-story picks up with Sara and Gary (Adam Tsekhman) who have crashlanded on an alien world where they meet Amelia Earhart (Jen Oleksiuk), or some monster pretending to be her, while searching for answers about where they are and how they might make it home.

The Sixth Season of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow kicks off with Sara Lance (Caity Lotz) missing in action after being abducted by aliens, who apparently include Gary (Adam Tsekhman), from 1977 London leaving Ava (Jes Macallan) to rally the troops and find her girlfriend. While searching for a lead, the Legends enlist the reluctant help of former abductee Esperanza “Spooner” Cruz (Lisseth Chavez) and the episode also introduces the idea of alien magic which Constantine (Matt Ryan) attempts to use to help locate Sara.
