Turns Out Legends of Tomorrow's Time-Traveling Bounty Hunter Has a Secret

Illustration for article titled Turns Out iLegends of Tomorrow/is Time-Traveling Bounty Hunter Has a Secret

When we last left the Legends of Tomorrow, the time-traveling bounty hunter Chronos had tracked down the team yet again, forcing Rip to beat a hasty retreat in his timeship, and leave a few of his teammates behind in 1958. Last night we learned that the man behind Chronos’ mask is a bit more familiar than we expected. Spoiler!

It’s Mick Rory, a.k.a. Heatwave, who recently betrayed the team, then was seemingly taken out by his partner-in-crime Captain Cold. Turns out the Time Masters have a sense of irony, and they picked him up immediately after he was abandoned to be their eternal time enforcer. They’ve turned the hotheaded pyromaniac (no pun intended) into a merciless, stone-cold killer (okay, that time the pun was intended, especially since the main part of Mick’s remaining personality seems to be 100% devoted to hating his former partner).

By the end of the episode, Mick/Chronos is in the Waverider’s brig, and theLegends are going to try to deprogram their ex-teammate. Seeing as the pre-programmed Mick was still the jerk that betrayed them to a bunch of space pirates, I’m not sure how good an idea this is...

Yeah, let me know when more fan service characters show up, becuase I’m sure as hell not going to watch for the awful storyline.

But since there’s no place else to discuss it, how surprisingly entertaining was Arrow this week? Great lines all over the place (“We’re living Die Hard with bees”) especially from Captain Lance (“That’s an army of robot bees. Yep, this is my life now.”) and broken up angry Oliver was still more fun than angsty but-I-still-love-you Oliver. Getting rid of that relationship was the best thing ever. And Damian Darhk is more interesting now as an underdog working with the loyal-only-to-himself-Merlyn. Every time I think it makes no sense for Merlyn to still be alive, Barrowman makes me remember why they keep him around.
