Now in case you live under a rock: The Flash is doing the Flashpoint story arc. If you hadn’t heard I’m sorry, I understand you’ll need time to recover from that very old bombshell. I’ll give you some time . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Alright that’s enough. This means there will be plenty going on in the Flarrowverse, since Flashpoint will impact the entire universe (four-way crossover!). A question I’ve been asking since it was confirmed is: What’s going to happen in Legends of Tomorrow?

lot_s2_posterIf you haven’t watched it let me give you a quick rundown. A few of the characters from Flash and Arrow’s HUGE repertoire: Captain Cold, White Canary, Atom, both halves of Firestorm, Heat Wave, Hawkgirl & Hawkman, have joined Rip Hunter in his travels through time. Rip is trying to stop Vandal Savage from killing his wife and son, he also somewhat cares about the future of humanity, but mainly the first thing. It’s a good show, and if you haven’t checked it out I suggest you do so; especially since I’ll be writing about it weekly once it starts to air again. The next season starts October  13 8:00-9:00 on the CW.

With the timeline being messed up (Damn it Barry!) and this being a time travel show it’ll be interesting to see how the next season unfolds. Here’s the synopsis for season 2:

“After the defeat of the immortal villain Vandal Savage and the corrupt Time Masters who colluded with him, a new threat emerges. Dr. Nate Heywood (Nick Zano), an unconventional and charming historian, is thrust into the action upon making a shocking discovery – the Legends are scattered throughout time.

Nate must find a way to rescue season one’s beloved team of heroes and rogues, including billionaire inventor Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), who has created an exo-suit with the power to shrink him to miniscule size, as the Atom; Sara Lance (Caity Lotz), the White Canary, a trained assassin; Professor Martin Stein (Victor Garber) and Jefferson “Jax” Jackson (Franz Drameh), who together form the meta-human Firestorm; and Mick Rory (Dominic Purcell), aka Heat Wave, a career criminal. When the Legends encounter the J.S.A (the Justice Society of America, the precursor to DC’s Justice League) in the 1940s, Amaya Jiwe (Maisie Richardson-Sellers), aka Vixen, joins the team. While the team reunites, a mystery looms – the fate of former captain Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill).

Once reunited, the Legends continue their new mission to protect the timeline from temporal aberrations – unusual changes to history that spawn potentially catastrophic consequences. When Nate, the grandson of J.S.A. member Commander Steel, unexpectedly finds himself with powers, he must overcome his own insecurities and find the hero within himself. Ultimately, the Legends will clash with foes both past and present, to save the world from a mysterious new threat.”


While next season’s story arc sounds exciting, the JSA, there’s a few things which really have me scratching my head. Could they be because of the universe wide Flashpoint story (Damn it Barry, sorry just can’t help it)?

Why is Captain Cold part of the legion of Doom?


Spoiler Ahead:

You have been warned…..

*Also how is he back? They had given Snart such a heroic death, now he’s a bad guy? Why is Heat Wave sticking around if Cold isn’t good anymore?*



What else is different now that the timeline’s changed? What happened to Rip? So many questions we need answered. Can’t wait to see how they answer these questions and how it will affect the overall structure of the Flarrowverse. Damn it Barry! (One more for good measure.)
