Leviathan is the 13th episode of Legends Of Tomorrow, first broadcasted on April 28, 2016 with a script by Sarah Nicole Jones & Ray Utaranachitt and directed by Gregory Smith.

The team travels to London, 2166 to try to eliminate Savage just before he finally takes over the world. While investigating Savage, Kendra notices that one of his female officers is wearing a bracelet that she originally wore when she first died in ancient Egypt. The team plans to retrieve the bracelet, knowing that it will help them kill Savage. They also join forces with local rebels. The officer turns out to be Cassandra, Savage’s daughter. Snart kidnaps her and manages to convince her to assist them. Rory helps Kendra melt the bracelet down and coat Carter’s mace so that it can be used to kill Savage. Savage’s giant robot called the Leviathan attacks the Waverider. While the others go after Savage, Ray reverses the polarity of his suit so that he can grow in size and takes out the Leviathan. The mace works, but Kendra refuses to kill Savage when she learns that he has brainwashed that generation’s incarnation of Carter to be his soldier. To save Carter’s mind, she and Rip imprison Savage on the Waverider.

A much better episode in terms of action, character development and an overall story compared to the previous episode.


Blind Spot, the 34th episode of Arrow and the 11th of season two, was first broadcasted on January 22, 2014 with a script by Wendy Mercie & Ben Schwartz and directed by Glen Winter.

Blood visits his mother and kills her after learning that she told Laurel the truth. Oliver continues his search for the man in the skull mask and receives help from Laurel, who suspects that it is Blood. Fearing that he will be discovered, Blood has Laurel arrested for drug possession by his disciple, Officer Daily. Afterwards, he has her kidnapped to lure Arrow out. The latter comes to rescue her; but during the fight, Laurel kills the masked man, who is revealed to be Daily, unknowingly throwing suspicion off Blood. Laurel is cleared of charges, but is fired because of her addiction. It is revealed to have been Slade’s plan for Blood to get intimate with Laurel in order to hurt Oliver. Slade is revealed to be wearing a specific suit and mask. Meanwhile, Roy and Cindy attempt to use his new powers to stop a murderer, but Roy goes overboard and puts the man in the hospital. Arrow convinces Roy to train him in order to control his new powers as well as his change in mental state. In flashbacks, Sara initially considers an offer from Ivo to return the Mirakuru for safe passage off the island, but changes her mind eventually.

Yeah, Blood’s plan was not planned out well at all, in fact nothing about this episode is written well, they just create all these different plans that when you really stop to look at them, don’t make a whole lot of sense and also creates plotholes for the rest of the show going forward. Still got some nice action and characters to work with but yeah, that plot is just all over the place.
