Fairly depressing finale. Yet another variation on the same overall themes that "Supergirl" is spouting, only dopier. I wonder if there's a message they're trying to get across. Hmm....
The producers hinted at big changes to the crew, but the actor that exits will be back as a different character.
They're really going to have sell me to get me anywhere near next season.

I think I’m finally bailing on this series. There are fun moments but the goofy has generally overwhelmed everything too much for my tastes, to the point where if I watched this blind I wouldn’t even know it was “based” on DC Comics characters. The Gary and Mona have taken over the series.

The writers even made some meta-commentary on some fans criticizing the show for not being enough about superheroes during this episode. By itself, the finale wasn't bad. But the episode reminds everyone this show has really become something much different than what Legends was first intended.

The only characters working for me on Legends are Sara and Nate, mostly due to the actors playing them. Everyone else just seems to be collecting a paycheck. I know this has always been an ensemble, but they should have leaned much more heavily on Caity Lotz being the focal point.

Unfortunately, Sara started out as a badass, but now she's portrayed as a suburban mom, stressed by her make-shift family.I like Dominic but he's essentially used to deliver the occasional punch-line.

I wasn't rooting for it, but it seemed logical since it seemed his character arc had ended. Apparently the writers felt differently.

The most ludicrous thing about this episode was that anyone child bearing age or younger would know a James Taylor song.

Not bad as season finales go, but this show has veered off course to a kind of silly I can't get down with anymore. Hopefully a fix is in store.

Unless there's a new showrunner I wouldn't count on it, -they seem pretty committed to the direction they're going.

I hope it gets sillier next season.

Whilst Constantine was a good addition, this was a weak season

Can't stand the asian girl

Indeed. They need to get rid of her post haste. They almost certainly won't, of course.
