Fact: Sara, Ava et al. were in Time Police custody, if anything Legends of Tomorrow‘s last season came to an end.
Fact: The Lightning is the last remaining Arrowverse series whose characters regularly interacted with the Legends.
Suggestion: What happened if The Lightning The next season was a sort of “crossover” where Barry & Co. get wind of their friends being imprisoned and stage a superhero prison break?
Of the 19 dramas The CW has aired this TV season, legends 9th place in the audience and only behind All Americans, The Lightning and Superman & Lois in the demo. The Arrowverse series ended Season 7 with a finale featuring DC Comics character Booster Gold (played by scrubs Vet Donald Faison), who told the Legends they were being arrested for time crimes. “It’s going to have a big impact on a potential season 8 because they’re going to be in prison,” co-showrunner Keto Shimizu previously told TVLine.
Elsewhere in the episode, Sara learned she was pregnant with Ava’s baby, what that means legends Fans would surely love at least some sense of closure.
And so would TVLine. So during a recent chat with flash Showrunner Eric Wallace, I just pointed out that the Speedster series does what is suggested above and saves them legends! (And hey, maybe even bring an incarnation of Prison Breakers/Arrowverse alumni Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell along for the ride.)
Wallace was enthusiastic about the idea. The thing is, The Lightning itself (based on quotes from several actors) was on course to become a bye run for the current season until the stars lined up for a renewal in January. That means season 9 could be tagged instead The Lightning‘s own swan song, and as such every minute will be precious.
“I don’t even know what my order is,” as for the Season 9 episode count, Wallace told TVLine earlier this month. “I will save the legends… As much as I’d love to do that, it’s not very easy in a season where I might have to complete my own story. I want to be honest and not give anyone hope!”
