Even though I gave Legends of Tomorrow‘s fourth season premiere a glowing review not long ago, I can’t help noticing how the show is at risk of spiraling out of control when it comes to pushing the silliness envelop. Really, after seeing cheaply costumed monsters chowing down at the Time Bureau last week, it became all the more difficult to accept that this series takes place in the same universe as Arrow.
Of course, we’ll have to wait and see how next week’s offering, “Tender is the Nate,” does in this regard, but we’ve been given some assurances of being treated to some drama along the way. In fact, we have a newly released gallery to assist in illustrating just that.
Seen below, the relevant slideshow teases a meeting between Nate and Charlie, something I’m intrigued to see play out. If you’ll recall, Citizen Steel himself got pretty hot and heavy with Vixen in past seasons, so one has to wonder how he’ll react having someone else sharing her visage around the Waverider. I doubt he’ll go for the rebound, but you never know.
Also of note is that of Nate’s dad, Hank, keeping the Legends company on their next adventure. It’s probably safe to say that he wants to see what they do in the field for himself before allocating any more funds to the Time Bureau. Plus, it’d be nice to find out more about this “Project Hades” he’s cooking up unbeknownst to his son and his teammates.
For more on “Tender is the Nate,” be sure to check out the official synopsis:
SHOCKED BUT NOT FORGOTTEN — When Hank Heywood (guest star Tom Wilson) confronts Ava (Jes Macallan) about the spending habits of the Legends, Nate (Nick Zano) steps in to try and smooth things over by inviting Hank on to the Waverider. The Legends then show Hank what they do by visiting 1920s Paris, trying to capture the newest Fugitive. Meanwhile, Mona (Ramona Young) is trying to make a good impression with Ava, but her over eagerness gets her and Ava stuck in a cell instead. Caity Lotz, Matt Ryan, Brandon Routh, Dominic Purcell, Tala Ashe and Maisie Richardson-Sellers also star. Dean Choe directed the episode written by Phil Klemmer & Matthew Maala wrote the episode (#406). Original airdate 11/26/2018.
