SaraVision gets an appropriately epic test run when the Legends go Greek
There are some reliable greatest-hits in the Legends repertoire. Tributes to other films and television shows, nearly always top-notch. Lots of good zombies in their past. Basically anytime Sara Lance has to kick her own team’s ass, that’s excellent, especially if she’s also kicking her own ass. But some of the very best episodes have something richer common: A new (or not-so-new) member of the team is mistrustful, resentful, or otherwise on the outside in some way, and oneor more of the other team members butts heads with that person before finding a way to draw them into the fold. Arguably the best episode of Legends belongs in this category. The end of the second season hinged on this arc for Mick. Charlie got one. At the beginning of this season, Ava got one (sort of). “Freaks And Greeks,” credited to writers Ubah Mohamed and Matthew Maala and playfully directed by Nico Sachse (a frequent First Assistant Director for the show, here making his TV direction debut), firmly belongs in this category—because it’s time to bring Astra into the fold.
