Season 6 Episode 10 “John and Spooner travel back Spain 1935 to find the Fountain, while the Legends deal with an adolescent Gus-Gus.”
What I Liked?
1. Constantine pretty much took every single point in this section, all 4 likes came from him this episode, I’ll just tell you now. We get to see Constantine open the episode by searching for a way to find the fountain which will grant him his magic back. He finds a vial of Crowley’s blood which he keeps as a “last resort”.
2. Constantine then ropes in Spooner, they head to 1935 Spain, they stumble upon a man who tells them about this other man who drank from the fountain and can survive death, although he leads them astray and tells them the man is in the next village over. We then learn that Hitler is also looking for this man and the fountain.
3. After a short scuffle, Constantine returns as a priest, he then gets Spooner to speak to the kid about where the fountain is, this goes on for a few minutes until everyone starts shooting which gives Constantine, Spooner, and the kid a chance to escape.
4. Later on after a few more scenes in the woods, we find the trio at the dried-up fountain, Constantine asks Spooner for her help in transferring the magic from the kid to him, when they do this, the magic goes into the stones and disappears because of the prophecy. Constantine then gets a dumb idea of drinking Crowley’s blood which causes him to go into a trance-like state and kill the German soldiers before passing out.
What I disliked?
1. The rest of the Legends took a backseat this episode, essentially Nate, Behrad, Original Zari, and Astra were all promoted to being a nanny for the pink teddy bear Gus, while Sara and Ava were in the episode for a total of 20 seconds if that, oh and Mick was “in labor” which was a false alarm.
2. The story for the Legends was absolutely bad, while the story for Constantine actually saved the episode a lot. Although I saw the direction he was going from a mile away in the episode, It’ll be interesting to see what happens with him going forward.
My favorite moment came from Constantine when he was explaining his background and upbringing to Spooner, that he used to get beat by his father and without magic, he’s nothing, that with magic he could break the rules and stick it to the rich and powerful.
Constantine, no shocker. No one else deserved it or even came anywhere near deserving.
This episode was by no means in any way shape, or form the best episode of the entire show’s history but for me, it was one of the stronger episodes this season, and this episode was only saved by the Constantine storyline. The episode was alright, had its moments with Constantine and the rest of the cast were not even well acted or even had an interesting story.
