There are obviously quite a few consequences that come with time travel, especially when you are trying to construct a narrative for the sake of a TV show. These consequences are probably exaggerated tenfold when you stop for a minute to think about all of the various problems that can come from having three separate shows set in the same universe. What happens on “Legends of Tomorrow” could in turn impact both “Arrow” and “The Flash,”
What makes this even more complicated is the following tease executive producer Greg Berlanti makes (per TVLine) about how the end of “Legends of Tomorrow” could in theory screw up the rest of the timeline for “Arrow” and “The Flash” this season:
“They’re supposed to be coming back to when they left [after the mission], but obviously that ain’t gonna happen!”
It makes much more sense for something to go wrong, mostly because of the fact that the events that happen on these shows do need to matter, and you cannot just wipe all of that away as though it is not important. “The Flash” has done that a couple of times in individual episodes, but still found a way to make that alternate-timeline still somehow relevant.
What may also be of interest is that, at least for now, the crew over at “Arrow” is not going to be spending too much time worrying over the absence of Ray Palmer or Sara Lance. They know that they are off on a mission, and admittedly they’ve got so many other important things to worry about that dealing with the crew of Legends is not too much of a concern.
