Spoilers for 'DC's Legends of Tomorrow' Season 5 Episode 12 'Freaks and Greeks'
Yet another spectacular episode of 'DC's Legends of Tomorrow' Season 5 is here with all the college comedy fun you could ask for. Episode 12 'Freaks and Greeks' saw the Legends returning to Nate Heywood's (Nick Zano) alma mater to steal a magical cup that grants immortality from Dionysus (Drew Ray Tanner).
The episode was an excellent homage to frat movies, complete with rush week, wild parties and beer pong. The fans have gathered on Reddit to discuss the episode and here's what they're saying: "For any other show, a frat movie homage where the literal fate of the world is decided by a game of beer pong between Dionysus and a time-traveling blind assassin would be one of the craziest things I had ever seen... But for the Legends, it was Tuesday," a fan declared.
Another fan wrote, "We need more Dude Bro Nate... Sorry, SHOTGUN NATE! SHOTGUN NATE!"
The episode also featured some nice father-daughter bonding between Mick Rory (Dominic Purcell) and his daughter, Lita (Mina Sundwall). It looks like Lita's becoming part of the Legends family and the fans are all for it.
"I love that Lita has just sort of unquestionably been included as an honorary Legend and part of the family and everyone just goes with it," one fan commented. "And I like Astra as resident bad girl. But when she and Mick inevitably wind up on a mission together someday, it's a guarantee something is gonna get burned down."
"Lita is getting that big extended family that just loves you on sight and is willing to lay down their lives for you even though they barely know you," another fan added. "When she smiles you can just tell that it's because Mick didn't just give her a dad...he gave her an even bigger gift that she didn't even know she wanted. I really hope in the next crossover she gets to meet Barry and Kara and Kate and they tell her about all the times where Mick really did do the selfless things he doesn't talk about."
Yet another fan joined in suggesting, "Instead of that being a crossover, I think it'd be a great middle/filler/bottle episode to have the Legends telling Lita stories about Mick (from their PoVs, of course)."
It looks like Legends is going to be as wild as ever and in the next episode, we'll be seeing the team drop into a total zombie apocalypse. It's going to be night (of the living dead) to remember!
'DC's Legends of Tomorrow' Season 5 airs on Tuesdays at 9 pm ET on The CW.
