    Real talk: my showrunner #PhilKlemmer shared with me the storyline of the last few eps of the season and I requested #JohnCena arms...
    Two weeks later I received an email for an appt to have my arms molded… 3 hours of molding and 3 weeks of fabrication later our effects team used #JohnCena actual arm measurements to create these gems for me… Lastly I would like to apologize to everyone on our cast and crew for constantly calling all their arms ‘chicken wings’…… #mastersfx

    Well, apparently as buff as Cena anyway. :)

    A fun episode from the villains perspective.

    My new prediction is that one of the robot doppelgängers becomes part of the real crew by the end of the season. My money is on Zari.

    Why, because they already have two Zaris and you think they'd want to add one more? That would be a very Legends thing to do.

    But Zari was the one who found out the truth and still chose to side with Evil Gideon. If anything, that makes her unlikely to be redeemable.

    I thought that was a really interesting twist myself. Lots of goofy humor to start, VERY dark at the end, then the funny "ad" to keep it from being too dark.

    I have to assume 1) the actors had fun and 2) LOTS of cracking up!

    John Cena, in his "Prime" was ridiculously "Jacked".


    Android Zari that was created by Evil Gideon sided with "Evil Gideon".

    So, you're saying it was Legends?

    That was a pretty good episode. Nate’s jacked arms just made me laugh every time he was on screen.

    It’s obvious that eventually the evil Waverider will replace the Legends destroyed Waverider.

    And I really dug the outfit Sara wore when she went to assassinate the scientist.

    I didn't enjoy this one, since I hate reality TV, so mimicking its tropes was just annoying to me. I'm sure it was satirizing them to an extent, but satire works best with a genre you know well, which I don't. I'm also not a fan of stories about characters having artificially generated or amplified conflicts, rather than ones that arise organically. Okay, presumably the intent was a "Naked Time" deal (hi, Spooner) where the outside influence just amplifies what conflicts and tensions the characters already have, but it didn't really come off that way -- it was more like DS9: "Dramatis Personae" where the characters have stock personality types superimposed on them so they aren't really expressing their true conflicts. I mean, why is Sara the ditzy vacation girl? Why is Gideon not merely cool and calculating, but actively malicious?

    Also, if this is a Hell broadcast and they censored references to God and heaven, why did they also censor nudity? If the morals are inverted, you'd think they would've shown everything.

    Gideon is playing the actively malicious trope. There's usually one who comes across that way, either for real or through editing.
    As for Spooner, show's on the CW not HBO, the nudity was gonna blur. in hell or not. Spooner was the "out there and unpredictable" contestant.

    Yes, I know, but that's exactly the problem. It's forcing Gideon to fit a stock trope of reality TV. It's not something that arises from Gideon's own personality. Why would she, specifically, adopt that role? How does it have anything to do with who she is as a person and what motivates her? They tried to connect it to her wanting to close off her emotions, but it doesn't logically follow from that, because malice is an emotion. She didn't just become cold and detached, she became actively cruel, and that has no connection to her. Tropes and gimmicks should be used to serve the characters. This was warping the characters to serve the gimmick.

    Were any of the characters on point once the curse took over? Even totem Z felt compelled to act out of character after a few seconds in the curse.

    Well that was amazing! Best part was censoring every reference to God and Christianity since it’s a broadcast in hell. They even managed to get in some good character work with Behrad.
