Sarah aka White Canary was flawless last night! Her fight scenes were on point last night. I love Rip’s question as she was fighting, “How many knives do you have?” Sara faced her blood lust problem and found the strength to restrain her from killing. Leonard Snart aka Captain Cold like Rip was trying to fix his past by stealing the “kryptonite” inspired jewel so his father didn’t have to. It was also revealed that Snart did this so that his father could avoid jail. I appreciate what they are trying to do with Leonard Snart’s character. It appears that Snart doesn’t want to lead the life of crime he’s accustomed to. He’s trying to fix his past like Rip and like Rip he is not succeeding. There’s no doubt that destiny seems set on Snart fulfilling his destiny as the villain Captain Cold. Ray and Dr. Stein had a nice heart to heart while removing fragments of the dagger from Hawkgirl’s arteries. I look forward to Ray moving beyond his guilt, insecurities, and remorse so that he can become the hero he is destined to be.
The highlight of the episode was the showdown with Vandal Savage and his cult. Vandal was seen drinking the blood of Carter Hall aka Hawkman and offering it to his followers which prolonged their life by 100 years. Vandal steals the show every time he is on screen. The show used his cultic followers to affirm how much of threat he is. I also like how Vandal threatened Rip at the end of their battle by letting him know that he is going to kill his wife and son.
I love the direction the show is heading in. I hope we get to see a glimmer of the Dark Knight or Man of Steel since Rip made a reference to them last night. Hawkgirl at the end of last night’s episode appeared helpless standing at the grave of Carter. I think it would be awesome if she learned how to fight from Sarah. Finally, I wish we had a cameo from somebody in the shared TV universe. Stephen Amell teased via his Facebook page that he would be in episode 1.6 of the season with one arm and a full Goatee. Can’t wait to see more Legends!!!!
