Legends of Tomorrow Recap ‘Legends of To-Meow-Meow’
Thanks to Constantine, time is fractured. The only person not affected by the change is Charlie, who was aboard the jump ship with Zari. Unfortunately, Zari was turned into a cat. Charlie doesn’t really care about the changes, taking the jump ship to Las Vegas where she poses as Marilyn Monroe. Her party is cut short when the the Custodians of Chronology crash the party and kill a leprechaun. Ray, Nate, and Mick compose this new time travel group and have a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to mythical creatures. Charlie realizes just how bad the timeline is and decides to infiltrate the Waverider, posing as Sara. The Custodians instantly know she’s a shapeshifter because Sara was killed by the unicorn at Woodstock. Know that she knows where history has gone wrong, Charlie locates Constantine, who is in prison at the Time Bureau. With ZariCat, Charlie goes to his aid. With some help from Mona and a depressed Ava, they bust out of the Time Bureau and narrowly escape the Custodians. They fly to Woodstock, kill the unicorn, and celebrate their success. But it didn’t quite work.
Round two, Ray, Nate, and Mick were killed by the Fairy Godmother at Salem, creating the Sirens of Space-Time comprised of Sara, Ava, and Gideon. Once again, Charlie is recognized as a shapeshifter and the three attack. She escapes, they fly off to Salem, save the boys, and see what’s happened now. And if Charlie and Constantine didn’t think things could get any worse, they do. After being released by Prudence, the Fairy Godmother attaches herself to Mick, who calls the rest of the team the Time Bureau’s puppets, and that’s what they become. After Constantine endures a musical number by puppets of Sara, Ray, and Mick, he and Charlie are off to fix things again.
Zari keeps trying to tell them that they have to return to New Orleans, but Constantine is determined to save Desmond. He will go to the ends of the earth to do so. Everything they try fails, however. Someone has died in pretty much every timeline and the Legends are ruthless killing machines. After a long talk with ZariCat, Constantine decides that he has to let Desmond be dragged to Hell. They return to New Orleans and the Legends pick up on the multiple magical signatures of Constantine. They think that he is the shapeshifter that has been alluding them. Charlie poses as Ava to try and persuade Sara not to pull the trigger on the Constantines, but Sara figures out the truth. Luckily, Constantine has enough time to set things back the way they are supposed to be. His past self and Desmond are happily in love for the moment and restore time with a kiss.
After, Constantine tells Sara the truth of the whole ordeal. She assures him that they will always be there to back him up and will figure out a way to save Desmond. Charlie had some soul-searching of her own during the episode and came to the realization that she is the missing piece in all of the timelines they explored. Without her, the Legends don’t see that some mystical beings are good. They aim to kill. She admits to Zari that the reason she still wears Amaya’s face is because that’s who she was when she joined the Legends. They have become like a family to her. The timeline is saved, for now, but we are ramping up to an emotional second half of the season as the final scene has Hank Heywood playing golf with a man, telling him that Project Hades will work. And who is his golfing partner? Desmond. A Desmond who is more than likely possessed by Neron.
This episode was so goofy, but oh so good. I am so glad that Maisie Richardson-Sellers was able to come back to Legends even though Amaya’s story was done. Her and Matt Ryan were fantastic this episode. Each of the new timelines they visited were hilarious and I would watch any of those if they were an actual series. I laughed so hard when they revealed that Mick left his puppet team to pull heists with the Fairy Godmother. Legends continues to find ways to make things even crazier. Never change.
Legends of Tomorrow returns for the second half of the season in April.
