Synopsis: The Legends track a Time Aberration to 1927 Chicago and realize they’ve been set up by Eobard Thawne, Damien Dahrk and the newest member of the Legion of Doom – Malcolm Merlyn.

Review: The team go back to 1920’s Chicago where they have opportunity to lend some aid to the legendary FBI Agent Elliott Ness in his quest to bring down Al Capone.

Once again the relationship between Mick and Vixen gets explored, but this time round we get to enjoy a guest appearance from Wentworth Miller as the ghost of Leonard Snart. 

It was particularly enjoyable seeing Mick get to out gangster some of Capone’s henchmen and yes. Being a bad girl really does suit Vixen.

Elsewhere we get to see further repercussions of Steins aberration as he is forced to confess his error to Sara, which is pretty tough on him because she holds him in such high regard.

The period dress in this and the cars were fantastic. I just have to wonder how much of the shows budget has been splurged on these episodes.

John Barrowman as ever was excellent value as Merlyn. Especially when it came to trying to tempt Sara with a life in which she was never stranded on the island with Ollie.

If I have one criticism for this episode it would be to many villains. While the addition of Merlyn was a lot of fun. It meant that Damien Dahrk was kind of relegated to the sidelines while Merlyn and Reverse Flash did pretty much most of the heavy lifting.

As far as the friendship between Steel and Atom. Their friendly little rivalry is getting more and more ridiculous, but lots of fun.

By the close of the story. All that was once wrong is put right again, but we get a great teaser for the next episode, which we’ll see in January. It looks like we could finally be seeing the return of Rip Hunter, but not as we know him if the finale scene is anything to go by.

This series scales new levels of ridiculousness with each passing week, which is one of the reasons I’m sticking around.
