  • While the series usually airs on Tuesdays at 9 PM EST/EDT, this one is airing at 8 PM (typically the timeslot of The Flash, but that show is currently on spring hiatus). Why is this? It is entirely possible at least one contributing factor is the fact that the same day—April 4th, 2017—the Prison Break revival debuts at 9 PM on FOX, which could potentially draw away ratings, particularly as both shows star Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell.
    • Also, since part of the plan to restore reality involves arriving before the events of "Fellowship of the Spear" (which originally premiered two weeks prior at 9)...
  • Thawne comes across as a bit of an idiot when he decides to kill all of the Legends before Sara, who actually has the Spear of Destiny. But, it's possible that Sara was already using the Spear subtly or subconsciously to prevent Thawne from killing her. This is supported by the fact that immediately after Sara depowers the Spear, Thawne takes it.

How well does it match the trope?
