    So we have an episode that largely existed just to parody E.T.

    But it kind of worked because there was some character development of Ray.

    As I've said before the characters on the show have largely become parodies of themselves so any attempt to take them seriously is futile.

    But they didn't try that here. Instead they just said, here is why Ray is so weird. So therefore it worked.

I feel like Ray's really suffered on Legends. They've drug him down to their level.

    So this episode officially set up that Stein is on his way out the door.

He deserves better. So who becomes the next Firestorm? I'm assuming Jax can't become Firestorm by himself. (Rory seems a little on the nose what with his shtick already being fire). Whose life are they going to have to ruin to keep Firestorm?

    Zari, who had some bite/angst is already seeming like just a team player. That's a bit disappointing.

I have no strong feelings about her one way or the other. They can't call her Isis because...you know. And she was Black Adam's love interest in the comic but no way they will ever have someone as interesting as Black Adam on Legends. And they changed her name for some reason...she's not Andrea Thomas or Adrianna Tomaz she's Zari. And one was a Caucasian American and the other was Egyptian in the comics but this one is a Muslim American. She's a weird composite character.

    Sara seemed awfully removed in this episode, like they were giving the actress the week off or something.

I used to really like Sara on Arrow but away from Oliver, Laurel, Quentin, the League of Assassins, Nyssa etc she doesn't have any interesting story on Legends. They left all the interesting parts about her back in Star City. I kind wish she and Ray would move back to Star City and just do stuff on Arrow. They're not bad characters when they're on Arrow.

Like what will Sara's reaction to Black Siren be? I'm more interesting in seeing that than the nonsense she does on Legends.

    Nate hitting on Ray's mom was LOL. "Why didn't you tell me your mom was hot?" "Why would I say something like that?"

I think they should just do a running gag where Nate impregnates strange women from the past every other week. Eventually revealing that his various unplanned descendants have become like time tyrants or something equally dumb.

    Baby Dominators are really powerful and that's kind of terrifying especially since they are kind of cute.

Ok remind me again...were the Dominators from Supergirl's universe or Oliver's universe? Or do they exist in both? (has anyone relevant existed on both worlds yet)

I think Dominators exist on Flash/Arrow's universe as they took notice of Earth after Barry made Flashpoint

Of course with time broken anything goes.
