DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – Season 3 Episode 9

“Beebo the God of War” DC’s Legends of Tomorrow takes the team to England to battle toy worshipping Vikings as they deal with the recent loss of a team member. You might be forgiven for expecting this episode to be more on the glum side considering the recent loss of Martin Stein. As I said…

“Helen Hunt” DC’s Legends of Tomorrow heads back to 1930s Hollywood as the team track down an anachronism in the form of Helen of Troy herself.

“Fellowship of the Spear” DC’s Legends of Tomorrow heads to World War I to recruit J.R.R. Tolkien (Jack Turner) to help them destroy the Spear of Destiny before it falls into the hands of the Legion of Doom. Everything about that summary seems completely ridiculous yet it is swiftly becoming the norm for this show….
