"Legends Of Tomorrow" Season 7 Review: The End Of The Line For My Favorite Superhero Show


Season 7 opens in 1925 Odessa Texas. When we last saw the Legends they had just fought off an alien invasion (the Zaguron army) and Sara and Ava finally got married. But we know our crew couldnt be happy for too long. Soon after, another Waverider appeared and destroyed their ship. Uh oh. Now they're stuck.  

The team devised a plant to get to New York and Dr Gwyn Davies (an expert in time travel). He is played by Matt Ryan (who was previously Constantine). Zari 2.0 is still heartbroken at John's departure last season. 

Off go Sara, Ava, Nate, Behrad, and my favorite alien Gary. They encounter J Edgar Hoover, Thomas Edison, and Rosie The Riveter along the way. In a separate dimension Nate and Zari try to figure out what makes android Hoover tick and discuss their relationship goals. Nate impersonates Hoover but with unexpected results. Irritating Bishiop is still around for some of this season. Gideon becomes human. I glad the actress got a larger role this season. Gideon, Astra and Spooner develop a bond. Astra and Behrad get closer. 

Gwyn is devastated because his boyfriend Alan was killed in WWI. He was working on a time machine in order to save him. But it turns out Alan's death is a "fixed point: (which means it cant be altered). 

We have some cameos from previous Legends in the 100th episode-- Ray Palmer (the Atom) and Norah Dark, Leonard Snart (Captain Cold), Jax Jackson and Martin Stein (Firestorm) and Rip Turner. The team encounters a crew of doppelgangers-- Robo Legends who are set on killing them all. They are led by the evil AI Gideon. 

One of my favorites of the season is "Lowest Common Denominator". The group ends up in John's Manor dimension. What they dont realize is a cursed TV crew is causing their emotions to spike and that they are in a reality TV show. Great episode. I especially enjoyed Sponner running around naked pretending she's on "Survivor". 

At the end of the season Sara learns she's pregnant (with Ava's baby). Not sure how the specifics of that works. But just roll with it, It's something about the Kriblix (alien) DNA that she merged with last season.  

Nate loses his powers while rescuing  Alan. He then goes to live with Zari 1.0 in the totem. We of course know that the actor wanted to leave to spend more time with his family. 

And after once again saving the world (for the umpteenth time), the Legends are now about to be arrested by the Time Police.  A new character from the comics is introduced. He starts out as just Mike (who is there to protect fixed points and play a ground of golf). He is later revealed to be Booster Gold. 



Grade: 4 1/2 Monsters (out of 5). It appears (baring a miracle) that season 7 will be the final season of "Legends of Tomorrow". CW is about to be purchased and thus got rid of a number of shows including: "SuperGirl", "Batwoman" and of course "LoT" The only DC show I believe remaining is "Flash". I'm actually surprised "Legends" lasted as long as it did. I think it's success lies in the large cast of very quirky characters. A key ingredient is also the writers willingness to throw caution to the wind and just go for it. 

It's been a great ride. Over seven seasons we watched our ragtag group cause more trouble to the timeline than they actually fixed. But their hearts were always in the right place. 

There have been more crazy moments that I can recall. See my previous reviews here My favorite non-Legends character is definitely Bebo God of War. Who ever came up with Bebo seriously deserves a big raise. I love him so much, he's my screensaver. 

I also very much appreciate "Legends" inclusion and diversity. Sara and Ava's wedding, pregnancy and love for each other is treated with respect and dignity. People of color make up a large part of the cast compared with other superhero shows. The show also didnt shy away from social justice issues and proved that TV shows can both educate audiences (in this case about historical inequalities) and still be tons of fun. Way to go "LoT". You're definitely one in a million.
