Earlier this year, the news was first revealed that Legends of Tomorrow season 4 will not be featured within the Elseworlds crossover event. At first, our reaction to this was disappointment given that it meant the CW series would not be subject to the same promotion or attention. Crossover episodes do tend to get enormous ratings bumps and we’re sure that the series could have benefited from that.

Yet, at the same time it’s hard to necessarily label it a terrible thing that Legends of Tomorrow is not getting any sort of crossover bump here. There are so many characters in the Arrowverse that it probably would’ve faded into the background on the crossover but here, it’s got a rare-and-welcome opportunity to really stand on its own two feet and proclaim just precisely how awesome it truly is.
So what is this show going to be doing while the Elseworlds crossover is happening? Well, let’s just say that it has an episode coming entitled “Legends of To-Meow-Meow,” and that may very well be the greatest episode title in recent TV history. (We almost want it to be an episode where the entire Legends are presented in the form of cat memes.)
For some more news right now regarding precisely what is coming up, check out the official Legends of Tomorrow synopsis below:
IT’S THE RIGHT THING TO DO – After Constantine (Matt Ryan) breaks the cardinal Legend rule, you can’t change the past, he, along with Charlie (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) and Zari (Tala Ashe) try to deal with the ramifications without telling the rest of the Legends. Even though Zari encourages them to just fix the problem, Constantine and Charlie are determined to find another way, but only continue to make things worse. Caity Lotz, Brandon Routh, Dominic Purcell, Nick Zano, Ramona Young and Jes Macallan also star. Ben Bray directed the episode written by James Eagan & Ray Utarnachitt (#408). Original airdate 12/10/2018.
While all of this sounds exciting, who else feels like there’s something else going on here that The CW isn’t quite willing to share? We don’t think that you have an episode with “Meow” in the title unless there is a pretty darn good reason to do so! We definitely do think that this episode will be the series firing on all cylinders; it’s also a challenge to create an episode so outstanding here that it remains the rest of the Arrowverse that this may actually be the best show of the group.
