Have to say, the ending is almost exactly what I was hoping they would do: Merge the current CW tv show earths (Legends, Arrow, Supergirl, Black Lightning all from the same Earth) while allowing the past shows, movies, other network shows to still technically exist out there, ready to be drawn in if they ever choose to do so. I think somethings are left open-ended to a degree just to allow the individual shows to develop or answer those questions. It wraps up the main plots while hopefully enticing you to check out what they will be doing going forward. After all, the Legends of Tomorrow and the Flash are all about time travel and alternate earths.

The Spectre requires a host body. Ollie's body was brought back via Lazarus Pit, but before his soul merged back with it, he agreed to take the role & power of the Spectre. I assume since his body is still technically mortal though powered, he "died" the second time in re-starting the multiverse. Presumably, if we see the Spectre again, it will probably be another earth's Jim Corrigan.

Adult William & Mia are the big question. The Diggles went back to having a girl as their first child. I assume the younger son we see is the Bronze Tiger's kid? Maybe that'll be addressed in that spin-off show.

I was wondering about Laurel and the other Supermen until the end showed there was still a multiverse. So, maybe that Laurel still exists. I also hope to see her as Black Canary on Star Girl. Be cool to see an alternate Green Arrow there as well and acknowledge the Law's Legionnaires/Seven Soldiers of Victory. It's a pity she wasn't one of the "paragons" as her waking up on a merged earth with a very different history than she remembered could have been a very interesting subplot.

One problem with your theory on Oliver-

He never took his physical body back. It was destroyed on the Waverider when the anti-matter wave hit. Oliver had become the Spectre and that was the "body" he was using when he manifested at the dawn of time. (Funny how before the big bang there was somehow a planet with normal gravity and air they could spend time on, huh? Including a light source so they could see?)

It was somehow the Spectre body that died...which makes NO sense at all.

The only thing I can figure is this isn't really the end for him, because he was the voice who told us there was a new multiverse.

You watch... Amell will show up as a guest star on some future episode of one of the shows. Likely not this season, but maybe next.

Barry: "I thought you died at the dawn of time!"
Oliver: "Barry, I was already dead."
