My mind went straight to L&O too, but then someone mentioned that Hudson is actually in the comics and Martin Stein was a student there. So I’m disappointed we didn’t get a reference to that.
I really enjoyed the episode, so I didn’t even realize there was no time travel until after the episode was done. I don’t want this to become an ongoing thing, but I didn’t mind taking a break from the usual because the episode was really enjoyable. Tonight Charlie got to give the “I hated it when I first joined the Legends but they grow on you” speech to Astra. Paring up Charlie and Astra worked well since they clashed, but Charlie still seemed to understand where Astra was coming from.
I can’t believe it but Mick’s storyline is one of my favorites this season. I love that he got his name on the building and cared about doing better for Lita.
Maybe it’s just me, but it feels like they’re setting up Ava to take Sara’s place, if CL ever decides she wants to leave. Ava is practically a co-captain now. And where was Constantine this episode? He had that flirty moment with Zari then disappeared. Has the budget shrunk so much that every episode one Legend is going to go missing like Ralph or Nia?
