LEGENDS Episode 105 "Rogue" Summary & Brief Review

Martin is put on leave after the confrontation with The Colonel. He begins looking into his own past and The Stranger's assertion that "Martin Odum" is a legend. This off-book investigation leads him to a mysterious smuggler in Houston named Kyle Dobson, who may have the answers he needs. Martin assumes the legend of a Southern outlaw named Len Barlow in order to infiltrate the smuggling operation and get close to Dobson.

SPOILERS AHEAD!!
The episode opens with Martin back on the FBI psychiatrist's couch, another debrief after a blown operation. How many more of these can Martin do without cracking? Has he already cracked? Martin is tired of the questions, and after being told to take a break from work, decides to continue pursuing his own problem. Why the nightmares? Why the memory losses?
Sonya shows up to have a chat & eat a meal with him. Martin finds that he likes it, but still more questions are raised when Sonya tells him about the care accident that left him in a coma for awhile.
Whilst doing research on this, Martin remembers he got a book from the dying vet Robert McCombs, the one who told him he wasn't Martin. He looks for clues and finds some page numbers marked which he gives to Maggie for investigation. She comes back with a list but it's obvious it's a phone number. Martin remembers what happened to Bobby, tells her very strongly to watch out.
Martin investigates the phone number owner, Dennis Evans. He is scared that Martin found him, doesn't want to talk but Martin pries out info, along with a damning photo of him & McCombs & this guy in Iraq, same time as the car accident. Is this right? Evans insists their problem is a cover up. He tells Martin to look for Kyle Dodson. Maggie gets Martin a few bits of info, enough to jog a bit of memory, and investigate.
Martin needs to assume an old legend, Texas cowboy Len Barlow, in order to find this Dodson. Maggie sets documentation up for him, and Martin/Len goes to Houston to follow up the lead. There he meets another old contact, and they troll a bar, connect with the guy's girlfriend who takes Len where he wants to go, see a lot of stuff there. But of course there's a bit of a hitch...
In the meantime, Tony Rice is still at his investigation into McCombs' death. He now hits up Crystal, whom he convinces that looking further into Martin's involvement is a good idea. They pursue some new angles, but there's a problem when they arrive at Evans' house after Martin. They have a look at Martin's apartment and discovers he's using the Barlow legend. Gone rogue.
Len: "I never lost a gunfight for lack of shooting."
I thought I liked Dante best but new legend Len Barlow ups that ante! Sean doing a Texas cowboy! This was terrific, this is what I was hoping the main push of the series would be, to Martin & who he might or might not be. I like Tony Rice & the cases in order to see new legends but it's almost a distraction. I liked Maggie a lot better this time. With Sonya Odum, some of my suspicions were confirmed by this episode, and I hope this tale keeps being chased!
The writers on twitter @LegendsWriters made a jest that included something about a 2nd series, I hope this is going to be true!
