"Moonshot" strayed a bit from the tight team dynamic, but it did give some food for thought.

"Moonshot" shows how effective the series can be when it finds a way to tie its central conceit to meaningful character development and genuinely tense plotting.

While the storyline in 'Moonshot' doesn't offer too much insight into Ray, it does give viewers a chance to see Reverse-Flash away from his fellow villains in the Legion of Doom.

Legends has always been inconsistent with its time travel logic as well as tone and both weak spots showed up in a major way.
