Tonight, Legends of Tomorrow seems to be bringing to the table its own version of a classic summer-camp movie. Moving into next week, their objective seems to be shifting towards the idea of Godzilla.

The next new episode of the series carries with it the title of “Tagumo Attacks!!!” — there are three exclamation points in there, which we like to think is the perfect thing for the writers to be very deliberate about. Apparently, one exclamation point was not even enough to signify how big this next episode is going to be!. This is a story that will bring the team all the way back to the 1950’s in Japan where they have to take on a rather unusual fugitive. Could this be some sort of giant monster? We’re not ruling it out, though we’re not sure just how much the show would give us of that with its budget in mind.
For now, just take a look at the Legends of Tomorrow season 4 episode 5 synopsis with some more insight on what’s ahead:
SOMETHING’S FISHY – A new fugitive is on the loose in 1951 Tokyo and Sara (Caity Lotz), Zari (Tala Ashe), Rory (Dominic Purcell) and Charlie (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) try to capture it. As Constantine (Matt Ryan) struggles to recover, Ray (Brandon Routh) knows that magic might be the only thing that can save him but must look outside the team for help. Meanwhile, Ava (Jes Macallan) joins Nate (Nick Zano) and his family for an unconventional Thanksgiving dinner. Courtney Ford and Ramona Young also star. Lexi La Roche directed the episode written by Keto Shimizu & Ubah Mohamed wrote the episode (#405). Original airdate 11/19/2018.
We do think that it’s nice that there is some actual element of Thanksgiving within this episode, given that it is airing a few days before the holiday (does Thanksgiving feel super-early this year to anyone else?). It’s been interesting to see the Nate-away-from-the-team storyline last as long as it has, given that this is certainly not something we anticipated. Yet, he’s come to be a very fun inclusion to the Time Bureau and while there, it has helped the show to differentiate him from Ray further. Both of these guys are super-likable and are a big part of the reason for the show’s success. Yet, we do understand some of the criticism out there from people who think that they are fairly close to being the same character. The more ways for them to stand out individually, the better it is for the series as a whole.
