Alright time readers we had another great episode brought to us tonight. We had an important Constantine storyline play out, we had a lot more happen that we will talk about. So let’s get to this review!
So in this episode we saw the writers of the series about to play into a really important Constantine (Matt Ryan) storyline only to dabble in the story. By playing a little bit of the beginning and then skip right to the end of the comic story. But given that it would take at least three episodes for them to play out the whole storyline, I guess they would have to shorten the story by playing it short.
Although if they revisit this story I hope they cast Death next time to actually visit Constantine and try to take his soul to hell rather than having Astra (Olivia Swann) be the one doing the job. Other than that, I thought Constantine’s story for this episode was the best so far. It really did make Constantine think long and hard and it looks like he might need to do some changes to his will. Never tell someone especially Gary (Adam Tsekhman) that your considering giving him something important like a house.
On the actual storyline of the episode it looks like the Legends face off against Genghis Khan (Terry Chen) who was wreaking havoc in the 90’s which is way after when Khan has died. I think out of all of this part of the episode was the final confrontation between Behrad (Shayan Sobhian) using his wind totem to stop bullets from moving. Literally that was the only part from this side of the episode that I actually enjoyed seeing happen.
Out of the Constantine side of the episode there were so many things I enjoyed. Like they had Constantine hallucinate the Bulldog (Robin Atkins Downes) head on his cane just speak a whole conversation with Constantine. I laughed and giggled at that whole scene. Then Constantine’s love advice to Ray (Brandon Routh) was adorable; you can tell Constantine really cares about Rays happiness. The little easter egg they threw in about Archangel Gabriel. And when Constantine was revived and went happy like he is never regretting life again. All of those moments and more were amazing.
Now this was Caity Lotz first time directing an episode. And I have to admit, she did a phenomenal job with directing and with cinematography. I hope she decides to direct more episodes in the future cause like acting she’s really good at directing too. If Caity Lotz does read this, she should know she was phenomenal and I enjoyed her episode quite a lot.
