What a journey we were taken on last night. The Legends of Tomorrow: Freakshow, took us on a wild ride at  a circus. Here we met a very desperate and unscrupulous ring master, who was played by Billy Zane. He was willing to do anything to produce the weirdest and abnormal people in his circus. I loved the role Billy Zane played, his circus is completely failing, but he has such faith in it. He of course, has no problem kidnapping any of the team! Which puts the Legends in a bit of a ridiculous situation.

The show kept things pretty light throughout the episode. There was a lot of humor and sloppy drinking going on. I definitely enjoyed where the guys went to the bar and did some male bonding. Which, of course, is what you do when your ex-girlfriend vanishes on you, then reappears. Hopefully the two of them can put the past behind them and still be able to work together.

Let’s talk about the cat fight between Sara and Agent Sharpe. I thoroughly enjoyed this scene. The two have such a strong dislike for each other, which is kind of understandable. The Legends are notorious for screwing things up, but Rip for some reason, still has a little faith in them. So, we see that the two ladies finally take it to each other in quite the showdown. The fighting was pretty awesome, but the part that sticks out the most is that they both need to take a break. So, we see these two women, who strongly dislike each other, call a truce and take a quick coffee break. It was absolutely hilarious!

The whole circus story line was pretty fantastic. Which was made even better when it comes out that Mick Rory is scared of clowns. Who would have guessed that tough, ex-criminal, would be scared of clowns. I was laughing so hard when he took off and left the professor because he was too close to the clown. I enjoy that the show really plays on their weaknesses and failures, which makes it really funny. Fear not, though, Rory managed to pull himself together and come back to take down the scary clowns!

Yet, there is still a more serious and darker side to the show. We definitely got a glimpse of some darkness, that is definitely coming. At the end of the episode we saw someone summoning up a dark creature from the water. A very evil looking moment, if I do say so myself. What looks like some weird glob turns into a woman. I definitely got some bad vibes from this chick. Is she the new evil that Rip is worried about? Why is Rip and the organization keeping this all a secret? If there is a big storm brewing, you would think that they would want everyone to know. Especially, if he believes the Legends are possibly going to save the world.

I’ll say it again, The Legends of Tomorrow, offers us so much as a series. It’s funny and also has some dark to it, with a bit of romance tossed in there. The main basis of the show,is that they are trying to stop temporal anomalies, but I really enjoy that they have so much other things going on. Now that we have a glimpse of the darkness that is coming, the team is going to have to prepare themselves and stay united, if they plan to succeed. So, if you love this show as much as I do, make sure you tune in next Tuesday at 9/8c, on the CW for another great episode! Trust me, you do not want to miss it!
