Thanks to John Constantine’s (Matt Ryan) rash decision — and Charlie’s (Maisie Richardson-Seller) prompting — time has fractured. Now, they are the only two Legends who can see the splintering effects in time. In one reality, Sara (Caity Lotz) and Ava (Jes Macallan) are danger spies at the Time Bureau. In another, everyone is as much a felt puppet as the mysterious Martin Stein simulacrum Mike the Spike (voiced by Paul Rubens) possessed this week. And when Comicon visited the set a few weeks ago, a cast member let slip that there may also be a reality where the rules of movies musicals are enforced. Which means Legends of Tomorrow may have uncovered the most Legends of Tomorrow way to enter its winter break.
Hopefully, Charlie can restore Zari (Tala Ashe) from her current cat form quickly so she can help out. But I’ll be honest, I cannot wait to see the puppet reality. While I was on the set, I got to spend the puppet Stein and he was amazing.
Meanwhile, we finally know the name of the demon hunting John. It’s good ol’ Neron, the DC Comics devil who infamously bargained with the villains for a shot at taking down
Captain Marvel Shazam. He and John have since become antagonists thanks to several reshapings of reality. But back on Legends, the mention of Neron’s name makes me wonder if Project Hades isn’t an all-out assault on Hell itself with the magical creatures the Time Bureau is housing as an army. Maybe we’ll get a hint of that next week.
Legends of Tomorrow airs Mondays on The CW.
