Bad Legends. Stop teasing us like that. You should be ashamed of yourselves. It's not nice to imply that you're going to hook jumper cables up to certain visible parts of Nate's anatomy and then do a bait and switch and just give him wires to hold. Not nice!

Overall, this left me flat. Even with Charlie's departure (which I wasn't expecting) and the way they handled the double Zari issue, I just couldn't get emotionally involved.

Same. I guess the whole 'Thong Song' fight scene was supposed to be this year's giant-Beebo over-the-top hilarious sequence but I don't think I actually laughed out loud once in the finale. And while I understand there was no way logistically for them to keep both Zari's around, losing Zari 1.0 was a bummer. And Behrad is fine, but so far he's no Brandon Routh.

Exactly. That Thong Song bit was such a waste. It had no tie-in to anything. It was so stupid and random. I was hoping we could get a blended Zari as opposed to strictly 2.0. Speaking of Brandon Routh, I couldn't believe they brought his wife back for the episode after they dumped him. Ouch!

So all the 1984 no-villainy stuff was left in the timeline and not reset-buttoned? I'm interested in how the other Arrowverse locales reacted to that happening in the middle of the battles against Leviathan, Alice, etc.

I actually enjoyed it. But I was left really disappointed that they vanished Zari 1.0. I wish they'd found a way to keep them both, even if it meant (because of the challenges of shooting a double role) they were going to swap places frequently. Heck, that could have been HILARIOUS, if they swapped unpredictably! And really difficult for the sex lives of four characters!

There were 15 extra minutes of this show that they had to cut. I'd like to see the full version.

Legends of Orphan Black, yes please.

They can both be in reality at the same time for short periods, yes? And/or Zari 1.0 can inhabit Zari 2.0's body?
