Legends of Tomorrow 2.08 “The Chicago Way” Top 5

Nick Zano as Nate Heywood and Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer - The CW

Welcome, loyal readers, to your weekly Top 5 run-down for Legends of Tomorrow. I’m pinch-hitting for Brianna this week, but she’ll be back after the winter hiatus. Fresh off of saving the world from aliens last week, the Legends return to chasing Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough) and Eobard Thawne (Matt Letscher) through time this week, heading to prohibition-era Chicago and tangling with Al Capone.

Bourne) made an appearance as a merc for hire, who had the metahuman ability to pull tattoo cards off his body and throw them fast enough to do some real damage.
