Last week’s 2nd season premiere of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow began as all things should… with Stephen Amell. Sigh… Nick Zano‘s Dr. Nate Haywood, historian, completed the handsome party, when he went to Oliver Queen for help in finding the legends. Apparently, the Waverider was destroyed by a nuclear bomb. They find the ship, but only Mick (Dominic Purcell) aboard in stasis. Mick told them the story of the last mission. Damian Darhk did it. So happy that Neal McDonough is back! Darhk was working with the Nazis and set it off. Rip ended up scattering the crew and leaving Mick in suspension.

Spoilers below.

Legends of Tomorrow 2.2 “The Justice Society of America” review: “We’re the Justice Society of America, and you’re coming with us.” Ray is geeking out (me too), and getting attacked simultaneously. They battle. These guys have cool powers, and even sharper duds. They are brought to JSA Headquarters, 1942. They bicker in jail, as expected. Everyone assumes the old-er white dude is the leader.

Nate meets his grandfather, Commander Steel, and shows him his (grandpa’s) dog-tags. “Your son passed them down to his son – me.”

Eobard Thawne is dealing with the Nazis. He is a total time rogue now.

Heatwave: “Haircut’s in love.” I’m in love, Mick Rory. Your comments are the best. I’ve always

Rex Tyler (Patrick J. Adams) warned them in 2016 to never come back to 1942, which is exactly what they do. It’s for a good cause, they just like to muck things up.

Dr. Haywood is not happy about the way the meeting with his grandfather went. He is even sadder when his dog tags disappear off of his neck. His research now says that the mission causes the JSA’s death. “We have to go back!” (See what I did there, fellow Losties?)

Haywood is definitely Sarah’s new love interest – not a spoiler, just a feeling.

Stein fakes being Hitler’s favorite singer: “Watch me for the changes and try to keep up.” Yaaaasssss!!!!! He sings “Edelweiss” damn well. Until the gang gets into a bar fight… again. The JSA shows up and they look like kids who got caught throwing a party – “We’re rescuing you.”

Vixen: “If it’s any consolation Dr. Palmer, you’re not really a hero.” She may has well have winked at him – flirt. Hmmm… can Ray finally have some luck with the ladies?

They attack the convoy but the mission gets bungled. Sarah tries to kill Darhk, who recognizes an assasin when he sees on. Ray and Vixen are left behind. She is about to be killed, when Ray makes a science deal.

Nate and “You don’t have to be a soldier to be a hero.”

Super Krieger looks a bit fake, but quite scary.

Nate saves Grandpa and then a bomb hits them. He is almost dead, and Ray gives over the serum to save them, which wins him a lady’s favor. Nate wakes up and his dog tags reappear.

Eobard Thawne shows up and kills Rex Tyler. My brain imploded with the implications this has on the space-time continuum. Great Scott! He and Darhk are also BFFs.

This show is just a bunch of fun. The Justice Society of 1942, which is sans Hourman (Rex Tyler), for now (damn you alternate timelines!), also includes Commander Steel (Matthew MacCaull), Doctor Mid-Nite (Kwesi Ameyaw), Stargirl (Sarah Grey), Vixen (Maisie Richardson-Sellers), and Obsidian (Dan Payne).

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow airs Thursday nights at 8:00pm ET on The CW.

The CW’s synopsis:

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow
The Justice Society of America (Ep# 202)
TEAM WORK — The Legends travel to Nazi-occupied Paris, but find themselves surrounded by the Justice Society of America (AKA JSA.) The Legends discover a time aberration that threatens the JSA, but the JSA wants nothing to do with them or their help. Nevertheless, the Legends force their way into the JSA’s mission to intercept and seize a mysterious package. Nate (Nick Zano) is desperate to prove that he should be part of the team, but he has a secret that he shares with his grandfather Commander Steel (Matthew MacCaull) that might make it difficult. Ray (Brandon Routh) is so focused on impressing the JSA, he puts himself and Vixen (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) in danger. Meanwhile, Stein (Victor Garber) has stepped in as the leader with Rip (Arthur Darvill) gone, but when decisions aren’t being made Sara (Caity Lotz) seems to be the one calling the shots. Dominic Purcell and Franz Drameh also star. Michael Grossman directed the episode written by Chris Fedak & Sarah Nicole Jones (#202). Original airdate 10/20/2016.
