We feel like we’ve made some of our thoughts clear on “Legends of Tomorrow,” but we really cannot state enough how much we love the Jonah Hex character. He may not be a time-traveler like many of the other characters, but he is a critical part of the DC Comics world and he’s got such a loyal following from that. We’re happy to see him at any chance we can here, even if it’s just for an episode.
That seems to be precisely what we’re getting for next week’s “Outlaw Country,” though what is somewhat interesting about this particular story is that this is an opportunity for us to see this character in the midst of a new conflict, and without the common link between him and the Legends in Rip Hunter. We’re still waiting to see precisely when Arthur Darvill is going to return to the show — though we have to think that he will eventually.
Synopsis – “The Legends are still reeling from the news that their time travel-nemesis is a speedster when they are alerted to an Aberration in the Old West. When the Legends arrive they find their old friend Jonah Hex (guest star Jonathan Schaech) in trouble with his arch-nemesis, Quentin Turnbull (guest star Jeff Fahey). The team soon discovers that they need to stop Turnbull and his gang from conquering the West and branding it his own lawless territory. To Hex’s surprise, Sara (Caity Lotz) is in charge and dispatches the team. Rory (Dominic Purcell) is ecstatic to be in the Wild West, but Sara makes Amaya (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) work with him to keep him on task, which is easier said than done. Meanwhile, Nate (Nick Zano), Ray (Brandon Routh) and Jax (Franz Drameh) try to infiltrate Turnball’s gang, but find themselves in a shootout leaving Nate’s confidence shaken.”
This episode sounds fun, even if the synopsis doesn’t really say too much about anything when it comes to the main villains of the season. It’d certainly be fun to see either Damien Darhk or the Reverse-Flash in this timeline; if they are going to show up, we presume that it’ll be a pleasant surprise.
Promo – Maybe this doesn’t have a whole lot to do with anything, but at the same time, should you really even care? The big takeaway here, at least for us, was that this was a heck of a lot of fun to watch and should make for an entertaining hour.
