Aside from a few issues I liked this episode. It was fun and breezy and pretty much what I wanted from this show last season. Without having to track down one person throughout time the Legends can have more fun adventures like this.
I totally agree with you about Vixen getting on board. It makes absolutely no sense and does not work with the timeline established last episode. Short of magic or a teleportation device, Vixen could not have been on the Waverider.
Nate basically falling in love with the Japanese woman also irritated me because it's a trope we've seen so many times and it was easy to see that they would not end up together.
Nate trying to become Citizen Steel and then getting his butt kicked by the samurai was priceless.
I have no problem with the Atom suit being blown up if it means we get a more comic book faithful suit down the road. I never liked the Iron Man rip off they did with Atom.
What secret could a future Barry send to the Legends that would have Rip hide an entire room and have both Jax and Stein agree to keep it a secret?
Mick's love of ninjas was a great little plot running through the episode.
When Mick was in the forest, being surrounded by Ninjas, was I the only one thinking: "Perhaps having heat wave, with his flame gun, in the middle of a forest, isn't such a good idea. Forest fires have been started with less.
Well, it's not like his heat gun has really ever acted like it would in real life. When he shoots flames at people it usually just knocks them back instead of setting them on fire. The flames haven't really caught anything on fire that I can recall, at least not when Mick didn't want them too.
Vixen being on the team was fun. She shook up the dynamic a little and it's just nice to see another female hero on the team now since Hawkgirl is gone.
