Legends of Tomorrow - Lucha de Apuestas

Legends of Tomorrow returns from hiatus with an episode that gets too serious for its own good (forgetting that the show is best when in joyously embraces the absurdity of its premise). There's certainly some fun to be had as the Legends travel to 1961 to Mexico in search of the fugitive Konane (Darien Martin) who is working as a Mexican wrestler, but the episode bogs down at times with the relationship drama between Sara (Caity Lotz) and Ava (Jes Macallan) who work at cross purposes for much of the episode, secret conspiracies inside the Time Bureau that foreshadow future heartache and betrayal, and tragic love. Even the closing twist involving Moana (Ramona Young) is depressing as there are certainly no happy endings for anyone this week.
