"Fail-Safe" is the show's best episode so far for many reasons, but high on that list is the decision to sideline Kendra, who has proven to be a weak point.
Who knew the "legends" could accomplish something for once? After a series of failures, they finally managed to prevent the worst from happening.
"Fail-Safe" is the first time it feels like there's a true sense of unity among all eight of them.
The show takes steps in the right direction with "Fail-Safe", but the bland ongoing story arc continues to disappoint.
This week proved that the Legends of Tomorrow works best when all of the pieces are on the board, working together against a common enemy.
It's looking rather apocalyptic, but if course, where there's a Star City, there's a Green Arrow... and in no time at all he arrives on the scene, and he's not Oliver Queen.
If anything, its improvements over episodes prior came in the form of giant leaps forward in tone, dialogue and plotting, although it may have come at a cost.
This episode was ultimately serviceable, with the ending being a real jaw-dropping affair. I wouldn't quite put it at the level of our past entries, but still, the show is moving at a nice clip and promises to get even crazier next week.
For the first half of the episode, Legends of Tomorrow finally felt like it was hitting its stride.
Jeez, I'm not sure I understand the logic of this show at all. But still, there's something very likeable about Legends regardless.
It wouldn't do for Legends of Tomorrow to completely abandon the humor that is so crucial to The Flash's success, but there's nothing wrong with the occasional darker episode like this. "Fail-Safe" made the most of its dramatic premise.
