Critic Consensus: By leaning into its sillier side, "Destiny" sidesteps the show's lesser elements -- though the writing still leaves something to be desired.

Episode Info

What happened to this show?

Yet another disappointing mess of an episode for the show, and one that gives me little faith in next week's finale delivering a satisfying conclusion

While this wasn't a comedic episode, it did have more humor, and this small bit of joy goes a long way to making the show the madcap adventure it was advertised as. Hopefully, that's a sign of good things to come for the revamped season 2.

"Destiny" was a really fun episode.

The writers behind Legends of Tomorrow just don't know their strengths. Which explains why the show's best character was killed off in the most pointless way.

The journey has been a little labored at times, and sometimes slides by on the charm of the cast, but I'm glad they got us here. Let's see if that finale can deliver!

Despite some shortcomings, "Destiny" was one of the stronger episodes of the season, heading into next week's finale.

Well, that hurt.

The bridge between dialogue that works on paper and on screen is now bridged for good, and Miller's ability to combine operatic texture with tangible ethos is the reason why.

"Destiny" works incredibly well, completing the character's journey from villain to sacrificial hero and adding weight and stakes to the show as it moves into the season finale.
