They have to protect a young JK Rowling, because as Constantine explains, somehow, inexplicably, she got the intricacies of magic exactly right and now something wants her dead.

But they fail and reality is restored to the way it should have been.

This is 100% going to happen and somehow it's going to culminate in one of the Harry Potter spell words being important to the story, or at the very least used as a zinger when they beat the bad guy, giving Rowling the idea for the spell in the first place.

Also, the episode itself won't make reference to their orientation, but after they leave JK will tell everyone she knows that Sara and Constantine were bisexual all along.

and no one as Nate, because the producers don't think is integral to the story

Well you just used up the budget of all 5 dc shows all the way until 2022.

It'd totally be a commentary on the dc comics industry if in the legends movie the studio threw Batman in the team for no reason and gave him credit for 99% of the stuff they accomplish.

He plays for the dreamers that forgot how to dream, and the lovers that forgot how to love.

I like that when they say "They aren't heroes, they are legends" they are right on 2 levels. They aren't heroes because they are monumental gently caress ups, that's the surface layer. But they have appeared throughout history - there are probably stories from ancient times of a Warrior Goddess clad in white and her Entourage, the Steel Colossus, the Shrinking Man, the intense man who controls fire like it were a pet, and the woman who fought with the savagery of every animal on earth. They have entered the realm of Actual Historical Legend.

Hey, maybe the Flash writers learned their lesson from this. "Treat Wally properly this year, or Legends is going to take him away again."

Also Jared Leto got a solo Joker movie greenlit today, so DCTV is still lightyears behind the DCEU in terms of amazeballs suicidal boneheaded choices.

Honestly, contract-wise, they should just treat all four shows (and maybe Black Lightning) as one single production and give the cast more freedom to cross-pollinate between shows at either their or the writers' convenience. It's probably insane and unfeasible and would be a logistical nightmare, but as a fan in terms of character interplay, I kinda want them to treat every episode as a potential Earth-X level crossover.

Like, I want an episode where the Legends crash the Waverider in National City and Winn needs to help them fix the thing. Or Ollie calls in Caitlin, Cisco and Ralph to help him deal with a weird-rear end meta. Or Barry calls Kara for help with something, but she can't make it, but hey Clark's available, and they celebrate afterwards by running the World's Finest race. Or Ollie breaks out of prison and instead of going back to Star City he lays low in Freeland for a few weeks and decides to try and figure out what the hell's up with this Black Lightning dude everyone's talking about.
