    The episode actually acknowledged that legends was skipping the big crossover. The line "we are getting a call from Oliver Queen and Barry Allen", "Must be the annual crossover", "hard pass". Very funny!

    This ep was crazy!

    I think Ray's dialogue is getting way too metatextual lately. "Sounds like another wacky Legends adventure," "This will be great for our ratings," and now this. He's supposed to be the Atom, not Deadpool!

    Yeah, it was super metatextual. But I think that is just part of how Legends is. It's a very meta show.

    What Else World?

    The time shenanigans of the Legends could have easily usurped Mar Novu completely. They could have left the timeline in disarray, and he would have been unicorned, mauled by a cat with a totem, chased by serial killer Puppets of Tomorrow, done in by the Sirens of Spacetime, and obliterated by Heatwave and his Fairy Godmother.

    No, seriously, Constantine messing with the timeline and Rory messing with reality at that very time should have been pretty annoying for the Monitor, and vice versa. And Rory also has a book.

    In the background as Charlie is searching the ship for Zari you can hear either Ray or Nate say "I bet this year they'll swap costumes"

    "Wanna bet they switch costumes this time?"

    (Or words to that effect.)

    Could Neron be "The Darkness"? Constantine made it sound like they had some history before what happened to Desmond, so could the NBC show be part of that history?
    That was hilarious.
    I loved this one, each alternate universe was better than the one before it.
    Looks like you were right. Although I did not expect it to turn out that he was working with Hank Heywood.
    I wonder if they're going to eventually just give Gideon a body? They seem to be find more and more excuses to get Amy Louise Pemberton on screen, and at this point an Andromeda style android connected to the ship really wouldn't be that out of place.

    Oliver doesn't wear underwear.

    They might retcon it that way, since the NBC show never explained what it was. But if so, they haven't specifically established it yet, which is what I was saying. I was answering the question about what connections there have been to the NBC show. Of course they might make other connections in the future, but we don't know that yet.

    I understood that, I was just wondering if there were any direct contradictions between what Constantine's shows established about The Darkness, and what we know of Neron.

    I don't think so, since the NBC show established very little about "the Rising Darkness," as I said. Basically it was some kind of growing evil that was making magical phenomena, especially dark ones, more powerful and dangerous. And apparently it was a threat to humanity's existence. Heck, it could've been Mallus for all we know.

    I have to say, as a Cat person, the cat they used was super cute. Gotta wonder though how much of the Cat was real vs. CGI? ;)

    There was a moment when I hoped the transformation would be permanent.


    I think the only CGI was digitally erasing the trainer and the objects the cat was reaching for. Or maybe stitching different shots of the cat pawing at things together into a continuous shot to make it look like she was operating the console.

    That cat’s eyes were a colour I haven’t seen before on a cat.

    I have at times called Morrison's DC work as Gardner Fox on acid.

    I think it was pretty much all a real cat, I don't recall it doing anything, other than change into a person, that you couldn't train a real cat to do.

    Someone posted a tweet a couple of pages back that had a video of the cat filming the scene in the jump ship where it operates the controls.
