Comicbook – In the trailer for next week’s episode of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, the team finds itself pitted against a murderous doll.
Shades of Child’s Play aside, fans have already seen in trailers and on social media that puppet versions of some of the Legends will play a role in an upcoming episode, and during a recent visit to the set, series stars Brandon Routh and Caity Lotz teased a little bit of what to expect over the next two weeks.
“We have a fun episode with puppets in a few episodes, which are really fun,” Routh teased. “I have a lot of interaction with the puppets — different puppets, we have many different puppets on the show — and then also, we have a fun alternate reality episode, which will be the one that’s the finale before the midseason break….Not mystical creatures, necessarily, but some of the creatures from the past come back and make an appearance in that episode and we get to be crazy in different versions of ourselves, which is always fun.”
While Routh explains the two as separate entities, other members of the cast, including Lotz, described the episodes as a two-part midseason finale, with the puppets being one of a number of alternate-universe takes on the Legends that fans will see between now and the 2018 finale in two weeks.
“I’ve been to the recording studio twice this season, which is hilarious,” Lotz said. “There’s some music-like episodes. Episode 8 is a lot of fun. I wish you guys could just see it now. You see a different version of everyone, like a different version of the Legends for a couple different versions, and it’s really wild, and seeing a puppet me was pretty cool.”
In general terms, it seems as though the jaunt through reality will not be related to the similarly-themed “Elseworlds” crossover that will take over Arrow, Supergirl, and The Flash in two weeks but will instead be more similar to last season’s “Here I Go Again,” in which Zari found herself stuck in a time loop and needed to bond with the team to save the Waverider and escape it. This time around, it would likely center on new member Charlie, although the exact details of how the dimensional shifts might work and who plays what roles were kept under wraps.
The initial season four trailer for Legends depicted the return of the puppet version of Martin Stein, created by Earth-X’s Leonard Snart (Wentworth Miller) in order to help the Legends deal with the then-recent loss of Stein during last year’s crossover event, “Crisis on Earth-X.” This time, Stein’s puppet seems to be alive, although it seems unlikely that Victor Garber will return to voice the role.
Comicbook – The Arrowverse’s shows might be nearing their midseason finales, but it sounds like one connection between Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow might not be done quite yet.
During a recent visit to Legends’ set, Sara Lance actress Caity Lotz spoke to ComicBook.com and other outlets about the death of Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne), which Sara was present for during Arrow’s season six finale. By and large, Quentin’s death hasn’t really been addressed in subsequent episodes of Legends, but Lotz hinted that it might come up in the future.
“You know, I don’t know. I may be going onto Arrow.” Lotz teased. “I don’t know. It’s something I think that could come back at any time, kind of. Because, obviously, when someone you love like your father passes away, that’s something that will affect your whole life. So even though we haven’t dealt with it now, I still think it’s possible that we would revisit it, but we haven’t yet. There’s so much to do in this season and in this world, and so many characters. It’s hard to fit it all in there, but I’d like to. I’d like to.”
Lotz has expressed a similar sentiment about that in the past, essentially saying that Sara’s main processing of her dad’s death happened in between Legends’ third and fourth seasons.
“I think it’s sometimes really hard something that happens on other shows onto your show.” Lotz explained back in July. “Our show is also a comedy now. It’s light and it’s fun, and your dad dying is not so much. Sara dealing with that takes place before the season starts. We talk about it a little.”
Even then, it’s safe to say that Sara has a lot on her plate at the moment, especially as she serves as the captain of the team as they hunt down magical fugitives.
“It’s definitely hard.” Lotz explained. “I think it’s becoming more and more like Sara has to be the mom with all these, like a bunch of kids, and it’s difficult for her because you’re constantly trying to manage all these different personalities, and you have to be the one who has your sh*t together all the time so everyone else can freak out or have fun and this and that, and you have to be the one that’s like, ‘Everything’s fine. Don’t worry. We’ll handle it. We’ll do this,’ even if inside you’re like, ‘Oh my God, what are we going to do?’ Like, you have to keep it cool. So I think it’s hard for her. And yeah, there’s just so many different personalities and new members of the team that are constantly shaking things up, and everybody kind of… Some of the newer people having their own agendas, it’s a difficult thing to try to manage.”
IT’S THE RIGHT THING TO DO — After Constantine (Matt Ryan) breaks the cardinal Legend rule, you can’t change the past, he, along with Charlie (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) and Zari (Tala Ashe) try to deal with the ramifications without telling the rest of the Legends. Even though Zari encourages them to just fix the problem, Constantine and Charlie are determined to find another way, but only continue to make things worse.

Tvline – The time has come for a most unusual “reunion”: On Monday’s Legends of Tomorrow (The CW, 9/8c), Nate will come face-to-face with Charlie, the shapeshifter who’s currently sporting his ex-girlfriend Amaya’s visage.
“As to be expected, he’s a bit overwhelmed by the situation,” Maisie Richardson-Sellers (Amaya/Charlie) previewed during TVLine’s recent set visit. Not helping matters is the fact that “the team chooses not necessarily the best tactic of, ‘Don’t ask, don’t tell,’” and doesn’t give their pal a heads-up about the Waverider’s familiar-looking new recruit. As a result, when Nate “stumbles upon” Charlie, “it’s quite a shock. And Charlie, being Charlie, doesn’t soften the blow at all. She makes the most out of the situation.”
But once the surprise wears off, Charlie might just be what Nate needs to move on with his life. “In some ways, she helps Nate get over Amaya,” Richardson-Sellers shared, “because when they do get over the initial confrontation, they do bond a little bit, and that’s quite beautiful to see. I think that helps him let go of his past and finally be able to live in his present.”
Elsewhere in the episode, Nate’s dad Hank (guest star Tom Wilson) questions the spending habits of the Legends, so his son invites him aboard the Waverider for the team’s latest mission to 1920s Paris. But not everyone is happy to have “the money guy” along for the ride.
“Sara hates Hank, because Hank… is not very nice to Ava,” Caity Lotz, who plays the Waverider’s captain, explained. “Ava follows the rules and the hierarchy, and Sara does not care about that.”
The time travelers may have even more reason to hate Hank after his mysterious Project Hades agenda is revealed. “Just wait until you find out what his real intentions are!” Lotz teased with a laugh.
Whatever Hank has in the works, it will set off alarm bells for Zari, who is “wary of the Time Bureau,” Tala Ashe said. “As time goes on, she’s going to be one of the people who’s suspicious of the shady things that may be happening there, and she’s very much willing to go and try to figure out what’s going on there. She’s always going to, I think, rub up against authority on a certain level.”
