Is there a way to give this show the closure it deserves? We’ve been an advocate for at least some sort of wrap-up movie that would allow the Legends to free themselves. Unfortunately, nothing has been announced and this brings us back to our Flash idea.
Are there some hang-ups to the idea? Sure. First of all, it could be hard to get the entire cast of Legends back for a conclusion if they are all off doing other things. Without a contract, they have to be pursue other opportunities elsewhere! There’s also a cost component and, as Flash showrunner told TVLine recently, there’s another issue in how much story he’s going to be able to tell in season 9:
“I don’t even know what my [episode order] is … Going to save the Legends…. As much as I’d love to do that, that’s not something that is very easy to do in a season when I may have to wrap up my own story. I want to be honest, and not get anybody’s hopes up!”
Grant Gustin’s contract for season 9 dictates that he will do 15 episodes, which isn’t a lot in comparison to past seasons. Even if The Flash can’t stage some full-scale rescue mission, we at least hope there’s a line in here where we learned what happened to these characters. At the moment, anything is better than the idea of them just sitting in a prison somewhere.
Do you think The Flash season 9 could offer closure to Legends of Tomorrow fans?
