Well, I could have done a better job with my hyperlinks there.

Like Den of Geek says, this is a good table-setter. That performance of Poison was FABULOUS. And awful! They did both!

I'm glad they are showing the challenges Ava is having adapting to her new role.

Ray pulled a gun on someone! Not like he'd ever use it, but wow! I was shocked.

I looooooved Constantine's terrible American accent.

Poor Nate. Also, exactly how many drugs do he and Behrad do? I'm going with "all of them." Great performance on Tala Ashe's part. She's not our Zari, but somewhere in there she IS our Zari. Really good nuance.

Also, where is Charlie? I want her back!

They should do an episode where they're all talking about Charlie, and where Charlie goes off to, and how some of them think they could do more to try to make her feel like a part of the team but others think she's fine, why bother, she seems like she doesn't need other people anyway, meanwhile they're all taking turns sitting in the big comfy wingback chair in the Ready Room or whatever they call it, then they all leave, and the chair morphs into Charlie and she hasn't actually been leaving, she's just been camouflaging herself as ordinary objects on the Waverider because she doesn't feel like people want her around. With a very touching and heartfelt resolution, of course.

Except for the too-long-for-regulation hair, Ray looked great in that uniform (and he looked very Christopher Reeves Clark Kent in that hat and suit), and John's regular look fit really well into that noir, detective milieu (and so did his scruples).

I assume the Moore was for Alan Moore, but I've been stumped about the Webb.

I keep wanting more for Mick--more action, more respect, more everything. He deserves it.

Both Ray and Nate are both such suckers where it comes to pretty women. Yes, Nate, Zari was playing you (not that I blame her).

If the Waverider crew sticks all of the encores into that one containment/holding area, things are going to get really dicey really quickly. I hope they've got a plan B in mind for encore control

I wonder if Webb was a nod to Jack Webb, or maybe Jack Webb.

It could be either one. I was just trying to mine the comics world for the reference and was drawing a blank.

I don't know if it was intentional, but I got definite He's My Pal (Meryl Streep, Ironweed 1987) vibes from it.
