    I'm hoping Canada and Alaska got better, and they restored all of the planets in the trophy case...

    The dialogue made it sound like all the planets turned into balls were killed. There’s probably nothing left.

    It was a little ambiguous. When the "Redshirts" were sucked into their planet-ball, I took that to mean they were being imprisoned there along with the rest of their planet, Kandor-style. But the dialogue did imply otherwise.

    It's all cute and fun but I find myself wanting a little more meat to chew on or perhaps going even more all in on the madcap. Once again, it feels a little lazy to me, harmless but just not very engaging.

    Got a bit confused how they got out of the game. Seemed very rushed

    Okay, they've done two episodes in a row revolving around the Legends being trapped playing a game. Maybe they could've mixed that up a bit more.

    They kind of faked us out, though, since I was expecting an episode spanning the whole three weeks with a series of vignettes of the crew going more and more stir crazy, but then it veered off in a totally different direction just three days in.

    Why would growing hair be a symptom of pregnancy in Gary & Kayla's species when they don't actually have any hair?


    By killing the Beast, as per the rules.

    They do now. Or at least when they're pregnant.

    Oh, poor Zari 2.0! John is going to break her heart, one way or another. :weep: Some really nice acting on Matt Ryan's part.

    Mick with hair is just... wrong. I have to assume the wig was that bad on purpose. Nice to see Kayla alive, but apparently working with Bishop because he saved her life. Watching Gary lose to a tentacle was hysterical. :lol:

    I wonder if it was more out necessity than story. Maybe they were going on a break after shooting this episode and Purcell had started letting his hair grow?

    It'd take a while to grow that much.

    Anyone with a semi-functioning brain would understand that I'm talking about the bad wig covering his real hair. So what does that say about you?

    @StCoop - there is no need to go personal like that, nor is such a comment germane to the conversation. Please do not go there again.

    Eh, with all the deaths at the end of this episode (John, Rory, the fountain), I assume we'll be getting a temporal-reset finale where the survivors go back and undo what happened here. This show has done that before.


    Okay, so if the Fountain of Imperium is a shield against alien invasions of Earth, how do you explain the Dominators? Or in the merged history, all the alien invaders in Supergirl? Or the Kryptonians in Superman & Lois? Must be a pretty leaky shield.

    I guess they're not considered "invasive" species. Whoever left it behind had a loose definition. I speculate
    that the Legends themselves left it behind with enough gaps for history as they know it to proceed.

    Ah, John. Always his own worst enemy. :sigh:

    Not this time. Matt Ryan will be playing a different character next season because DC/WB wants to do something else with Constantine. And I'm pretty sure Dom Purcell isn't coming back.

    He'll apparently be back once and a while, he's just not going to be a series regular anymore.

    Yes, I know that, but that doesn't necessarily mean he has to stay dead. After all, his death isn't the only disaster the Legends are currently facing, which is why a temporal reset seems likely (also the line in the description of the finale about "breaking the rules" seems to point that way). Constantine and Rory could be brought back to life but still choose to leave the Legends. After all, Constantine was just saying (albeit under the influence of the drugs) that he's never really been one of them. And Rory's a dad multiple times over now, so he has other responsibilities. Neither character has to stay dead in order to leave the show.
