The final installment of DC’s 4 night epic crossover event concluded with last night’s episode of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. Still located in Central City The Legends team up with the rest of the crossover team to eliminate The Dominators.
Central City 2016
After escaping the mothership and their abductors the team decides they want to commit an abduction of their own. Mick, Amaya, Nate, Felicity and Cisco head back in time to 1951 to kidnap a Dominator. Back at the base aka the Star Labs hanger, Oliver wants Kara to sit out or minimize her involvement in order to regain a sense of normalcy. He can’t handle all the aliens, even if a good one is on his side.
While Oliver continues to piss off Kara, Caitlin and Martin work on a plan to figure out how to defeat The Dominators back at Star Labs. Without Ray they aren’t doing too well. Luckily Martin’s daughter Lily helps them out as she has a PhD in Nanophysiology.
Timeship Central City 2016
On the timeship Cisco and Felicity geek out and start asking Nate all these techy questions that he can’t answer. They also throw in a Grease reference. “This ship is automatic. Systematic. Hydromatic.”
Redmond, Oregon 1951
The team lands in 1951 Redmond, Oregon moments later and Felicity experiences all the side effects of time travel. Therefore Felicity and Cisco are forced to stay on the timeship but not before Nate throws in a Princess Bride reference.
In the field Nate finally brings out his star spangled supersuit. Mick is not a fan but then again he really doesn’t like anything. While Mick, Amaya and Nate wait for a weak alien in the group, Cisco and Felicity have a mini therapy session. She tries to get him to see Barry’s point of view and understand that Dante’s death wasn’t his fault. It doesn’t work.
Cisco doesn’t have to dwell on it for long as Mick, Amaya and Nate spot a stray Dominator and make a move. They torch and beat it up a bit in order to grab it. Unfortunately they were not the only one’s looking to capture a Dominator. The group encounters a special government agent squad lead by Agent Smith and they are tranquilized and taken. Cisco and Felicity jump into action to rescue them.
Inside the cell Amaya and Nate realize the tranquilizer they were shot with is affecting their powers. They also learn of their cellmate; The Dominator they tried to capture earlier. They attempt to communicate with it.
Star Labs Central City 2016
Back at Star Labs Martin’s daughter (Lily) notices her father seems off. He is acting distant and treating her like a stranger, which to him she is. However, Martin doesn’t plan on dealing with this adversity for too long. He plans on restoring the timeline and in doing so will erase Lily from existence.
On the other side of town The White Canary (Sarah), The Green Arrow (Oliver), The Flash (Barry) and The Atom (Ray) are waiting for the president but are greeted by Agent Smith. The same Agent Smith, now much older, who kidnapped Amaya, Mick, Nate and The Dominator back in 1951. Smith informs the team that The Dominators dislike metas because they perceive them as a threat. Instead of accepting the team’s help, Smith and his special agents engage in a battle with the team.
Redmond, Oregon 1951
The other half of the team learns The Dominators are here to determine if the metahumans (at that period of time the JSA) are a threat. They are then rescued by the nerds (Cisco and Felicity) and set The Dominator that they captured free. Turns out the Waverider has a Dominator ship and they use that ship to send the Dominator back to its mothership. Not before Cisco snagged a transponder from the ship though.
Amaya, Mick, Nate, Felicity and Cisco strap in and return home to Central City 2016.
Central City 2016
At the hanger Agent Smith lets Barry know he knows everything about him and how he altered the timeline. The Dominators are back because of Barry. He unknowingly broke the truce by changing the timeline and creating flashpoint. However Agent Smith lets Barry know of the deal he made with the alien invaders. If Barry surrenders himself to The Dominators they will leave in peace.
The other half of the team returns to the hanger and gets a phone call from The Dominator they saved. He tells them he will spare their lives but if Barry doesn’t turn himself in The Dominators will unleash a weapon that will destroy all metahumans.
After getting this news Dominator ships begin to land all over the world. Cisco tries to call The Dominator back but he doesn’t answer. Hoping to get in contact with The Dominator he spoke to earlier Cisco vibes into the mothership with Nate.
They find him and learn the reason why The Dominators are threatened by Metahumans. They are afraid if bad people get powers they will use them to harm others and destroy the planet. The Dominators have seen it happen before and refuse to let history repeat itself. Speaking of history. Turns out Nate, Amaya, Cisco, Mick and Felicity altered the timeline when they saved The Dominator back in 1951. Cisco is finally able to understand Barry’s side of the story and the regret he feels.
Star Labs Central City 2016
Martin reconciles with Lily and she is able to figure out how to get the Nano-device to work. Is he having a change of heart? Will he still erase her from existence and restore the timeline or choose to save his daughter?
Central City 2016
As usual Barry wants to be a martyr and prepares to turn himself over. No ifs, ands or buts about it. Except for the fact that Oliver and the rest of the team won’t let him leave. Even Cisco wants him to stay. He calls Barry his friend again.
Ships all over the world and in Central City begin opening up. The team quickly discovers that it was a guise used to distract them from the real threat pummeling toward the Earth; The Dominators metabomb.
Martin arrives in time to give Barry the Nano-device crafted by Lily. Team crossover takes on The Dominators to distract them while Barry plants Martin and Lily’s weapon on all them. Amidst the battle Oliver is thrown off a building by the invaders but is saved by Supergirl.
In the air Sarah and Cisco use the Waverider to try and grab the metabomb. They recruit Firestorm to help them. Firestorm has to transmute the device into something harmless.
Supergirl and The Flash go across the globe planting devices on the remaining Dominators. Felicity uses the device to hurt The Dominators allowing Firestorm to successfully transmute the device causing The Dominators to retreat around the world.
Team crossover celebrates their victory and Ray slips in a nod to his Man of Steel days when he says Kara looks like his cousin.
Speaking of Kara. Oliver apologies to her and results in a Barry-Kara-Oliver (an unwilling participant) group hug. Cisco interrupts the moment to Oliver’s relief and presents Kara with a gift he made. The gift is an interdimensional extrapolator that creates small breaches so she can come back to this earth anytime she wants. It also has a communication device so she can contact the team when she wants/needs to.
Mick eavesdrops and learns of the device. He uses it to segway into a pickup line and hits on skirt aka Kara, telling her to call him.
In another part of the hanger Martin makes Jax promise not to tell the team about his daughter. He has had a change of heart and doesn’t want to lose her. If Jax tells the team they will be forced to restore the timeline and erase her from existence. The question remains: what other changes will this aberration make to the timeline if left alone?
Agent Smith briefly returns to speak to the team but before he can get a word out Kara tells him he has been reassigned to Antarctica. After silencing Smith Kara uses her breach device and returns home.
Forgiveness came full circle for Barry in the close of this episode. Diggle forgives him and tells Barry that he has to forgive himself.
Looking to continue the celebration Barry and Oliver head out to have a drink. After a few jabs their conversation turns more sincere. They realize that their lives would not be full if they were normal. They finally appreciate just how lucky they are.
Mid-season finale of The Flash: The Flash from Earth 3 and Barry take on Savitar.
Mid-season finale of Arrow: Evelyn goes rogue and unveils herself as a traitor who is working for Prometheus.
Mid-season finale of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: Al Capone arrives and Leonard Snart aka Captain Cold returns but not as The Legends version of Snart. He is just a criminal. Could this be the beginning of The Legion of Doom?
