Legends of Tomorrow Season 2: Episode 9, Rip Hunter is back, our critic!

Cinema 27 January, 2017

While Legends of Tomorrow’s Season 2 Episode 9 has just been aired on the CW, back on the main events of “Raiders of The Lost Art”!
Finally! And yes the meltynauts, after long believing that Rip Hunter was lost forever, he was finally back. A wonderful news for those who had never been able to accept the disappearance of this captain as charismatic as it is intelligent. While the editorial ‘of melty proposed to discover the Wentworth Miller of confidence for the return of Captain Cold in season 2 Legends of Tomorrow , back to the main events that have marked “Raiders of the Lost Art” aired last night on the CW . And the least we can say is that the spin-off continues on its course clearly assuming its crazy side, sarcastic and devilishly daring. Let it be said, there is only Legends of Tomorrow to dare to stage a film recounting the fight of Rip Hunter and Vandal Savage through actors to say the least bad. A way to make a nose to those who have not stopped criticizing the very first Big Bad of the series? And what a pleasure to see Rip Hunter even if the latter does not remember any more of his true identity. It must be said that its presence brings a plus to the undeniable series. Cunning and courageous, the Rip Hunter of our memories knew how to gather his team and brought his experience of Time Master of the Legends still novices in this field. Finding him was saving but equally frustrating since the Legion of Doom kidnapped him. Let’s hope our heroes can quickly save him.
But this episode was also an opportunity to meet the young version of George Lucas. And while we thought Nate and Ray practically invincible, the fact is that their knowledge first manifested through the films of the director to whom we owe Star Wars and Indiana Jones. So it was completely lost that the two scientists of the band were launching in the battle against a Legion of Doom more determined than ever to seize the famous wand that will allow them to rewrite the story. And we are eager to know the precise goal of the villains of this new season. What do they want to change exactly? Should we expect consequences in the entire Arrowverse series? One thing is certain, John Barrowman brings a real bonus to the Legion of Doom. As manipulative as Arrow, Merlyn offers a collaboration just plain frightening with Damien Darhk and Reverse Flash. We are therefore eager to discover what they have been preparing for now several episodes.
In addition, Rory asked Stein to help her stop Cold’s visions. If we never thought Mick could be crazy, we would have loved to see Wentworth Miller in the flesh. But according to Stein’s conclusions, Mick questions his position on the team. Does he want to return to his occupations as criminals? We hope not so much his character became indispensable in the Team. Finally, Jax takes more and more assurance and acquires wisdom and intelligence. Her speech to restore courage to Sara was perfect and one feels it matured over the missions. Far from Stein, Jax evolves individually and becomes a cornerstone of the series. In short, the Winter Premiere was solid and still funny. Wacky and full of reference, that’s how we like episodes of Legends of Tomorrow . After an absence of several weeks, the series will not disappoint us and we look forward to seeing Rip Hunter again. Will it retake its leading position? We will have to wait in order to be clear. Pending more information, be aware that iconic character will be recurring in Arrowverse on melty. What did you think of this episode?
