Okay, I watched the LoT finale. Pretty solid. I liked that the beginning had them adjusting back to life, and I like that Rip sorta helped Sara from trying to go back and save Laurel. And it was pretty cool to take advantage of the size of the team by killing Savage three different times. And, yes, we got the hard reset and a new quest with a smaller cast.
What I think is bothersome about all three shows is the lack of acknowledgement of what's going on in the other three shows.
- In Arrow, Damien Darhk just set off a nuclear bomb in an American city, and he's going to try and launch more.
- In Flash, an army of metahumans attacked Central City, killing at least a couple police officers.
- In Legends, the Earth was almost destroyed by Vandal Savage.
Now, I know they can't have crossovers every week, but wouldn't Team Flash be interested in helping prevent a nuclear blast? Wouldn't Team Arrow be willing to lend a hand when there's a literal war in the streets? And Lance tells Sara that her work with Rip is more important when there might not be a world when Darhk is done with it (or, conversely, if Rip doesn't think it's an issue, then everything works out fine in Arrow).
When the struggle is more intimate (Oliver having to take down Ra's or Barry taking down Thawne), then things can be contained. But even then, Barry and Oliver helped each other. But there's world-altering stuff going on, and I think that's a problem. I've mentioned it several times that this season of all three shows are doing an odd job of using this shared universe. Hopefully this new style of contract will help with that, especially if they expand it to a lot of the regular casts.
Because, honestly, Flash should be helping with what's going on in Star City. I know he's got Zoom, but they had time for a nice family dinner (that, yes, got disrupted by Zoom). I know Barry has a life, but a freakin' nuclear bomb went off.
