TV Review: DC’s Legends of Tomorrow S2E14 Moonshot

legends-of-tomorrow-season-2When the Legends track Commander Steel to NASA Headquarters in 1970, they discover where Nate’s grandfather hid the last fragment of the Spear of Destiny; tension grows between Rip and Sara over leadership of the team.

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow does its best Apollo 13 impression as the team heads to the doomed mission in hopes of grabbing the last fragment of the Spear of Destiny.

The episode is an interesting one in that it allows Nate to really explore his family dynamic as he interacts with his grandfather and contemplates changing the timeline in hopes of fixing his family dynamic. There’s something touching, but predictable about it all.

The episode is generally fun with Ray Palmer giving off his general excited vibe as he heads to the moon and a small musical number breaks out at one point (it works). There’s also tension between Sara and Rip and Sara’s leadership over the team. Where does that leave Rip in it all? We’ll find out.

The episode is entertaining and as usual throws it all out there in the crazy that is this series. You can tell everyone is enjoying themselves and the stories, like this episode, are over the top in plot and action. The end of the episode is where it’s at though. I’m not spoiling it, but it connects the dots in so many ways and again adds fun to the CW DCverse.

Overall Rating: 6.85
