Ahoy, Legends followers! You’d higher consider that if I have been higher at speaking—er, typing like a pirate, this complete publish can be executed in dialect. So rely yourselves fortunate that pirate-speak isn’t one thing I might embrace on my specific listing of expertise.
In my protection, it is actually not one thing I might embrace on Amaya’s listing of expertise both, and she or he appears to have completed fairly okay.
This week’s episode was actually type of a three-for-one deal. The pirate journey was undoubtedly probably the most motion packed, for positive, however on the similar time we had Sara and Ava’s date and Rip and Wally’s…uh, karaoke extravaganza, so that you know we have gotta speak about these issues too.
But earlier than we get into any of that, we should always in all probability tackle the urgent, Mallus-related stuff happening. The excellent news is, we have now received the Earth Totem locked down. The dangerous information is the Earth Totem is seemingly some type of parasitic entity that may simply overtake whoever is sporting it. So…that is probably an issue, contemplating these totems are doubtless going to must be used by some means to ensure that anybody to take Mallus on. We additionally discovered this week that the Fire Totem is, apparently, destroyed—a minimum of for now. So it isn’t a urgent difficulty in the meanwhile. That’ll in all probability change contemplating on a regular basis journey happening, nevertheless it’s not looming over us proper now.
Unfortunately, we nonetheless haven’t any actual concept what the mysterious sixth totem is or what it does. A pair weeks in the past, I guessed it might be one thing like metallic, however I am revising my guess now. And no, I’m not altering it to “heart,” for any of you Captain Planet followers, although I suppose my new principle isn’t too far faraway from that.
I feel, perhaps, the sixth totem is not a necklace or a gem, however some type of individual or mixed power from the opposite 5. I do not actually have a ton to base that guess off of and there is a good probability I’ve simply seen The Fifth Element a number of too many occasions, however actually, if the sixth totem actually have been simply one other piece of jewellery, why would not Amaya’s tribal historical past speak about it in any respect?
Am I loopy? And if it is one other gem, what would its component be? Do you guys have any guesses? While the spirit/Anansi totem and the wind totem each have some supply materials to name from again within the comics, the remaining of these are distinctive to the #DCTV universe, so they might actually come from anyplace or be something. This is my newest conspiracy concept pot to stir, I assume. (But do not assume I’ve forgotten about Lily Stein and her mysterious child—I hope you have not both. I am simply ready for that to return again and chew us.)
So Amaya’s pirate expertise sort of left one thing to be desired, however unsurprisingly Mick’s have been fairly prime notch. I am completely in favor of this new, enjoyable Mick-and-Amaya friendship which will or will not be blooming (which is fairly welcome, contemplating how over Amaya and Nate’s entire factor I’m. Please give her another individuals to work together with!).
But all of that being stated, the actual takeaway from the pirate half of the journey tonight has much less to do with the Dread Pirate Jiwe and extra to do with Ray, who could not reside with himself killing Nora, regardless of…properly, every part. It’s fairly loopy how sympathetic Nora has turn into to me since she’s been launched as a result of I can not even be mad at Ray for making this name. Sure, her dad is evil and she or he’s possessed by a demon threatening to tear actuality aside, however she’s actually a sufferer in all of this too.
To actually ice the cake of this ethical quandary, Wally and Rip are on the market having perhaps the perfect trip ever, whereas Sara and Ava attempt to fail to be regular individuals on a traditional date. So, you realize, a daily Monday for the Legends, actually.
But hey, with Wally sufficiently satisfied to hitch up with Rip, and Ava and Sara giving issues an actual go, I’m feeling fairly good concerning the crew’s roster of allies for the remaining of this season. I imply, on the very least, even when they fail with the entire Mallus factor, a minimum of we all know some of them have a reasonably nice karaoke profession forward of them.
