Critic Consensus: An entertaining cold war caper, "White Knights" finally makes good use of the show's time travel elements.

Episode Info

Nuclear scientists mysteriously disappear when Vandal Savage retreats behind the Iron Curtain in the early 1980s. The team follows Vandal's trail in an effort to find his next target, while Ray bonds with a beautiful Soviet scientist. Meanwhile, Stein pushes Jax to be better, which frustrates Jax and ultimately threatens the Firestorm matrix; and Rip asks Sara to train Kendra.

Critic Reviews for White Knights

It seems as though Legends of Tomorrow is embracing serialized stories as opposed to standalone episodes, and that worked out in its favor this week.

Legends of Tomorrow found the fun in some classic heist work, while continuing to develop the Firestorm relationship.

"White Knights" offers more than a few great scenes, thanks to one simple fact: when you give great actors time to act, they really don't need special effects.

There were some things to gripe about within "White Knights," but the episode created a bit of subtext text in a way that I really appreciated.

Still, I guess it's important to look at how many times the "legends" did succeed, and they succeeded fairly quickly as a team in this episode.

Unfortunately, "White Knights" as a whole made for the series' weakest outing so far, with the morally-muddled Stein at the forefront of tonight's action.

Finally, a sense of cohesiveness in the writing .

What's really impressing me right now is the lengths this show is willing to go to in order to surprise me.

No hint of Vandal Savage other than his name. I can dig that.

Legends of Tomorrow is beginning to find solid ground. It feels more cohesive, the character arcs are gaining clarity, and Vandal Savage's villainous behavior is developing in curious ways.
