In short....It was a mess
28 November 2017 | by louiethepittSee all my reviews

I didn't knew there was gonna be an event, so when it came up, I was intrigue... and the show didn't loose time to start mixing into the series their identity politics and ideological War...sad... very soon thing started with the cliché "hey there are 2 lesbians in the scene, therefor they must have sex immediately" and that is exactly what happen, next day she felt some remorse and said "I'm as dirty as a Guy"...supergirl corrected "Nope your a healthy strong Female"...because she femsplains that if a guy does it he is a dirty guy but if a female does the same thing then she is just strong and healthy...Double Standards anyone? lets not forget the inevitable predictable and boring at this point punch to President Trump "they wan't to make America Arian again" and then you have the things that just don't make sense in the continuity... Oliver is Arrow? but in the show he is undergoing an investigation can't leave the city and his friend is currently the Arrow...Oliver is not currently the arrow and under an investigation it would be impossible for him to leave the city to go to a wedding...then you have felicity one minute she is dreaming of one day getting marry to Oliver and next she is publicly dumping him....the legends that are fixing anachronisms find themselves beating the hell out of some guards with no connection to the continuity..and as usual take the back seat...funny thing is that there is not 1 word on the missing legends...where is Ray Palmer, Amaya, Nate and ISIS... like what is happening guys did they fell of the wave-rider.

other than that turning your brain of to the identity politics and the continuity nonsense, the bad guys look good, the idea is good (one universe expanding into the next universe) so that saves just a little bit this episode.
