Legends of Tomorrow – S5 Ep10 – The Great British Fake Off Review

After the devastating loss of Behrad the Legends are in a race against time to find the last piece of the Loom of Fate. Charlie briefs the team that she gave the Loom piece to Enchantress to hide in a place that won’t be easy to find. Zari is angered by the lack of progress and challenges Constantine a.k.a Magic Man to find a way of locating the loom piece as soon as possible.

Constantine decides to cast a spell that will harness all of their energy to draw the loom piece out. Just as the piece is in arms length Sara faints and the circle of energy is broken. Constantine and Zari lunge for the piece and are transported back in time when Constantine’s place was a boarding house. Constantine and Zari check-in while they plan their next move. The chemistry that has been bubbling under the surface comes to the fore as insults. Someone finally criticised and pointed out that Constantine ony has one outfit and in my view an outfit in serious need of a deep clean!! However it isn’t long before they have a plan.

Meanwhile back on the Waverider Sara is still unconsious and it appears that she is suffering the unknown consequences of surviving Atropos attack. While Sara is out of action Captain Ava has to take charge and try to find Constantine and Zari. The team have assembled and it appears that Astra has sent all of the encores in Constantine’s direction. However before they can get a fix the locator crashes because it cannot track Encores travelling through time. This means a trip to hell is on the cards.

Constantine and Zari have tracked the energy to the Doctor room who checked-in behind them. Zari is meant to use her influencer skills to keep the doctor busy while Constantine searches his room. However it doesn’t go to plan and Zari heads to the doctor’s room only to find it empty with no sign of Constantine. She turns to leave and discovers that the path is blocked by the Doctor who advances with a knife. Constantine to the rescue who kills the doctor but the doctor is infact Jack the RIpper and an Encore. Zari and Constantine knock out the doctor and are just in time to see all the other guests check-in and what an infamous bunch they are – King Henry VIII, Black Ceaesar, Brutus and Bonnie and Clyde. The clock chimes 8pm for dinner but what are Constantine and Zari going to do? Of course Constantine has a plan to join the encores for dinner while Zari stays in their room.

Constantine takes Jack the Rippers identity and it isn’t long before all the Encores realise that they have been promised their freedom if they can get the ring so effectively they are in competition with one another. It looks as though Constantine is going to hell as he may be about to reach a sticky end. However Constantine’s end is averted by a glamorous Zari posing as Cleopatra. Zari or perhaps Cleo manages to buy them some time in the form of a temporary truce. All of the Encores scatter to go an look for the ring.

On the Waverider Ava has arranged for Gary to teleport herself, Gary and Mick to hell to challenge Astra and to find out where the Encores have gone. Astra pleads her innocence until she discovers that all of her soul coins are gone and only one person could have taken them – the coin maker. Ava and Astra head to the coin makers and it looks as though Ava may be getting through when two Astra’s men grab Ava and take her back to the club. Astra heads to confront the coin maker alone. It turns out the coin maker is Charlie’s elder sister – Lachesis. Lachesis ingroduces Astra to Atropos and makes the offer if Astra helps them to become the third fate and their sister. Astra accepts and leaves with Constantine’s soul coin. Astra rushes back to the club and tells the team to leave. Ava somehow persuades Astra to go with them and fight against Charlie’s sisters.

Constantine and Zari are stll searching for the ring when Constantine realises that Enchantress would have made it that those who seek the ring will not be able to find it. So what else do you do when you aren’t looking you go for a drink. The temporary truce is in a fragile state as Bonnie and Clyde are sneakily picking off the competition. Zari starts opening up to Constantine about her life and the things she has heard and ignored about herself but Behrad’s loss will never be something she can overcome because he died protecting her. Bonnie and Clyde find the real Jack and all of the Encores go in hunt for Constantine. Constantine tells Zari to go and it looks like he is about to be tortured when Zari returns and manages to harness the totems power in time to save them both and send the Encores back to hell.Constantine’s cocky bravado drops away as he checks on Zari and they are about to have another moment when Conatantine spots the loom piece. Just at that moment the team burst in and are reunited and what’s clear is that Constantine and Zari make a formidable team. Back on the Waverider Constantine comes face to face with Astra.

So the season is hotting up in more ways than one. The team now have all the pieces of the loom.WIll they be able to save Behrad and bring back Astra’s mother? How will they defeat Charlie’s sisters? What fate awaits Astra who has seemingly turned on her mentor or is this just a way of getting the loom for them? Will Zari and Constantine finally get it together? Will Sara recover and what power does she now possess?
