‘Legends of Tomorrow’: Top moments of “The One Where We’re Trapped On TV”

Legends of Tomorrow continues to be the shining light in our gloomy reality. Once again the writers and the cast pull out all the stops, to put smiles on our faces! A huge thank you to the cast, crew, writers, and Marc Guggenheim for putting out such a great episode! It was the perfect lead up to the season finale! Here are the top moments of the episode!

1. Zari 1.0 Returns!


Normally I count from 5 down, but this is too exciting! Our Zari is back! I repeat, OG Zari is back! At the beginning of the episode we find out in the new reality the fates made, the Legends are trapped on TV. This is the only way Charlie could convince her sisters to let them live in the new reality. 

  1. The first show is a parody of Friends. Zari 2.0, Nate, and Behrad are on the show. That’s right you heard me, Behrad is alive!
  2. All of the sudden Zari 2.0 comes out of new Zari’s body. She realizes this isn’t the correct world, so she possesses new Zari’s body. 
  3. Zari tries to explain to Nate and Behrad who she is and what’s wrong with this reality.

They find a way out and travel to the next show. This show is a mock of Downtown Abbey. It features John, Astra, and Astra’s Mom! Yes, her Mom is alive!

2. Astra’s Mom Returns!


Astra and her Mom live in the house. The head of the staff is…wait for it…John Constantine! We get to see the Master of the dark arts as a head of house. It is as funny as it sounds. Zari convinces John he doesn’t belong here. 

He finally shows her he can do magic. John refuses to leave Astra. I guess no matter what timeline, he will protect her. Constantine performs a spell to send them to a different place, but he and Astra get caught in it. They are teleported to a space show called Star Trip.

3. Star Ship

Were you like me and wondering the entire episode where our co-captains were? Have no fear, Ava and Sara are okay! They are Co-captains of the Space Rider. Essentially Ava is Spoc and Sara is Picard. 

  • They lead a ship of androids. 
  • The two believe the ship Zari and crew are on is an enemy combatant. 
  • Zari beams them onto the ship.

Due to Ava/Spoc’s logic, Zari was able to convince them they are in a different timeline. After a while and a little help from Mona and Gary. (You heard me correctly.) The group gets their memories back. 

4. Why, Charlie, why?

The Legends are now in Mr. Parker’s Cul-de-sac. Mona brings their memories back. Everyone rushes into Zari’s arms! It finally happened! They remember. Who else has all the feels right now? The happiness is short-lived because Behrad is upset that the Zari he grew up with is gone. 

OG Zari explains to him she is just inhabiting her body. Charlie thinks that if she gives them both Zaris, the Legends will stay in the TV world. She wants them to be safe from her sisters. Oh, Charlie. We understand you are trying to protect them, but no. 

5. 2 Zaris!


Both Zaris return! We now have two Zaris! It is glorious! Charlie gives them one more chance, but the Legends decline. They would rather be themselves and fight the fates, then be apart! Now they will face the fates together! 

I know what you are wondering. Where is Mick? It’s okay he is there too. He was off being a villain in the Star Ship world. He is back with the Legends. Will they defeat the fates? Tune in next week on the season finale!

Legends of Tomorrow airs Tuesday night, on The CW at 9pm.

I am an actor and a writer. I spend my free time reading, writing, watching television, and hanging out with friends. My love of all things supernatural came from my first time watching ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ and has expanded into a wide range of shows. I love all things ‘Arrow’, ‘The Flash’, ‘Legends of Tomorrow', 'Supergirl', and ‘Legacies', to name a few. Traveling, cons, and beaches are three of my favorite things!
