For not knowing much about pirates, Amaya certainly was the greatest, and most inspiring, pirate of all time.
I'll admit, I wasn't particularly keen to tune into DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 3 Episode 12 because stories about pirates are, more often than not, dreadful, terribly written, and just all-around boring to watch. That said, this episode quickly became my favorite of the season.
Perhaps it was Amaya's most interesting performance since being introduced to the team that made this episode so compelling.
Amaya: Why’s everyone staring at me?

Added: February 27, 2018 This performance is possibly the greatest we've ever seen on Legends of Tomorrow, or any of the DCTV shows for that matter. It was raw, real, and it surprisingly wasn't oversold. Often, the worst part of pirate-themed anything is the overkill of the performance.
It was nice to see Amaya have to use her other skills to get by. Her totem—as much as it is a part of her—has become something she's relied on in every fight, but Amaya is a great fighter and has a vast amount of skills in her repertoire.
Also, Amaya's only stories seem to have Nate (and/or Kuasa) involved, so it was quite refreshing to get to see Amaya as a character of her own, rather than a plot device for someone else's story.
Could Amaya be the one to bear the earth totem? Yes, she uses the spirit totem primarily, but she's lost that and there's not really anyone else to use the totems, especially because no one could control them.
Changing Amaya's abilities, temporarily, could be interesting and lead to silly, confusing, regular Legends of Tomorrow antics that make the show so unique, but we could also see Amaya in a different light. How would different powers impact her?
I hope the show attempts to have Amaya use abilities she's unfamiliar with and pushes her character further outside of her box with it because, at this point, she's getting kind of bland. (Other than in this episode, of course, but this won't last.)
Nate: It’s the devil’s triangle.
Ray: It’s just a myth.

Yes, Ray hasn't killed anyone personally, so it's kind of an adjustment, but he did it to save Amaya's life. It's not like Nora dying is a big loss to them, any way, and it could have solved a lot of their problems.
It's infuriating this would happen because this is something that would've happened in the first season.
Not now after everything Ray has seen aboard the Waverider. This entire side plot was j..
