at the pissing match between Dahrk and Merlyn.

They had some great hate banter between them.

It was cool that most of the episode was from the Legion of Doom perspective, including the opening narration.

I fully expected them to end that with "We are...the Legion of Doom". Kind of disappointed that they didn't.

But it was fun to watch the villains get the spotlight.

Did I miss something? How did Darhk know to look for the tooth and how did he happen to know what the "filling" actually was?

Also, -let me get this straight, -is it good to keep secrets from my friends and family? I keep forgetting...

In the future your teeth will grow back.

Awesome episode. LoT is definitely the best of the 4 CW series this year. It's clear that the actors are having fun with it.

Black Racer anyone? So, is Black Racer faster than Savitar?

During Barry's Flash intro when he says "and I am the fastest man alive"...I've been adding "well, except for all of those other speedsters who are faster than you."

Its actually BLACK FLASH. He/It been around for almost 20 years in the comics.
At the end the season 2 FLASH Finale you get a glimpse of Zoom morphing into Black Flash.

Eh, I haven't read DC Comics in 20yrs so I can't tell the difference. I just assumed it was a new iteration of the Black Racer.

Really liked this episode, but had a couple of questions...

Darhk doesn't have magic now?

How does Stein know about Eobard Thawne? What prompted Stein to remember him this episode and not sooner?

It was cool that the villains were talking about second chances too. Nice tie-in with the eponymous Arrow episode.

We have just been loudly saying "second" as he says "fastest". When I don't just FF to the actually beginning that is. Between that rehash and "the last time on... " it wastes at least 2 minutes of screen time. Have no idea why shows, especially the CW shows, still do that.

I thought the banter got ridiculously campy at times, just TOO over the top, but it was still funny most of the time. The whole sequence at the bank was golden.

I suspect that like with most stuff its about money. That's 2 minutes of already filmed material they get to re-use to save on budget. Since audiences still watch all the shows that do it there is no incentive to ever stop.

Stein got his powers from the particle accelerator explosion that Thawne caused and has been friends with Caitlyn since Ronnie was part of Firestorm. I have no problem believing he's been filled in on that whole story off-camera. He remembered Thawne after hearing someone say that the speedster didn't exist.

Yeah I had to look it up to remember that Stein was around in S1 of The Flash. And I think you're right - hearing that the speedster didn't exist caused him to think of Thawne. Thanks for answering my question.

Stein was there when Eddie killed himself and wiped Thawne from existence. Problem with time travel on DC tv is it tends to be inconsistent. Sometimes changes happen instantaneously (like that episode) and sometimes it takes a long time like now. It seems this Thawne is from the original timeline of the show that we have never seen. He's from the timeline where the original Wells lives and Barry became the Flash later in life.

I feel really stupid but I never caught on that they were telling this episode from the Legion's perspective.

absolutely. this has been, by far, my favorite of the CW superhero shows this season. the new tone and obvious recognition of how ridiculous the concept is, is absolutely, positively, 100% working.

Yep. When I was a kid comic books, and especially DC Comics, were ridiculously outlandish and this show is finally capturing some of that feel that's missing from the other CW DC shows.

I'm glad they haven't given us last year's version of Rip Hunter. That character simply didn't work.

It was neat seeing the Black Flash appear, though I am surprised he hasn't been used on the Flash's own show.

INB4 Flash S4 villain is Black Flash.

After all Flash is always about Speedster villains only.. So how many more seasons can they go with Speedster villains without using him?
I'm not sure which exist that haven't been used...
