Though I’m currently digging Legends of Tomorrow
much more than I did during its earlier days, I must confess that season 1’s “Star City 2046” may very well be my favorite episode to date. In that, the Waverider crew visited the Emerald Archer’s stomping grounds in a dystopian future where Connor Hawke
Aka John Diggle Jr. inherited the mantle, with Oliver Queen himself being a one-armed recluse. On top of that, Slade Wilson
’s son, Grant, held dominion as the second Deathstroke. Yes, it was pretty cool.
If you’ve been following Arrow this season, then you’re aware of how it’s played host to flash forwards taking place twenty years down the road, therefore presumably being in 2038. And while there, Ollie’s son, William, meets a grizzled Roy Harper now calling Lian Yu home.
Naturally, these developments have fueled speculation of the events depicted in “Star City 2046” coming to fruition,
