Gideon is an interactive artificial consciousness. Now, consider this scenario: You have an iPhone. Your friend also has an iPhone. Both of you use Siri on your phones. Think of Gideon as Siri, from the Future. A lot of people probably use it. The Gideon in S.T.A.R. Labs had a different voice than the one on board the Wave Rider. That's because they ...

Marc Guggenheim, the creator of Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow answered this on Twitter. @Iloveyoursoul I love the TV show, WISEGUY. 4587 was Vince Terranova's "ident code." Arrow & Legends both have lots of Wiseguy easter eggs.

As was shown or alluded to in the show, Hunter tries to travel back in time to kill Vandal in ancient Egypt, before he obtained his immortality. Gareeb is evidently Arabic for, "the stranger", so it's likely in reference to Vandal not knowing who Hunter was at that time as he was quite literally a stranger who attempted to kill him.

Eobard Thawne explains his existence in Legends Season 2 Episode 10 "The Legion of Doom" Spoiler-free plot-point from that episode. Thawne: My ancestor [Eddie Thawne] killed himself in an effort to erase my very existence. Darhk: Well, you look pretty spry despite it. Thawne: The Flash pulled me from the timeline. He held me captive for months. ...

I don't know of a team in the comics with that particular ensemble (Firestorm, The Atom, White Canary, Rip Hunter, Hawkgirl, Heatwave, and Captain Cold). It looks like an original work based on characters that were already introduced in the CW's other shows, Flash and Arrow, with the exception of Rip Hunter, who is a new character to TV. The concept looks ...

Ok, I'll give this a shot too, but it's also heavily language-specific context. Like a lot of episodes, the title is a reference to something you have acknowledged. "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" The Witch part is related to Constantine's magical powers and the Wardrobe is likely a reference to the purgatory they find themselves in (like Narnia, ...

I'm not a fan of the show but I am a native Spanish speaker so I will say that "Lucha" means wrestling. There are many famous luchadores from Mexico such as El Santo, Blue Demon and Nacho Libre (kidding but his character was based on a real-life person) "Apuesta" is a bet, so betting and wrestling are concepts referenced therein So, back to the episode, ...

Why doesn't Rip just deal with his Wife and Son's death? No, its not about just the loss of his family but about humanity too. Vandal Savage is ruling the whole world, so just dealing with his family will be too selfish for a person like him. Why did he go back in time with a bunch of people he didn't know? Rip goes back in time to save the world from ...

It's actually not Arabic, it's Urdu and in Urdu it means "Poor." http://hamariweb.com/dictionaries/poor_urdu-meanings.aspx

It does not appear that this is a direct quote from any other media. However, it is reminiscent of a quote about Batman (another DC Comics superhero) from The Dark Knight: "He's the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now." —Commissioner Gordon In both quotes, the hero is said to not be the one that the people need, but the one they have ...

It was hard to follow because they showed it from a point of view where the timeline had already been affected. Basically, Cisco is the reason the Dominators were able to return. Something they didn't explicitly say, but that they implied (maybe the writers forgot to mention it in all of the mayhem that was happening), was that the Dominator Cisco saved ...

Spoilers for Season 3 Follow Thunderforge is right about him being the reverse flash from flashpoint since it has been revealed to us in legends of tomorrow. However i do believe that writers' of "The Flash" logic is broken. In the end of season 3 episode 1 we see that the reverse flash from flashpoint goes back in time and kills Nora Allen (the previous ...

No, the captioning seems to have gotten it right. The Carlin Award is mentioned twice in that episode. The first is when Martin is introducing himself to Damian Dahrk: STEIN: My name is Martin Stein. You may have heard of me. I'm on the negotiating team and was recently nominated for my sixth Carlin Award in physics. Stein later mentions the award a ...

I would say that the rules are the same. The time-ship and it's computer has specific rules about where it's safe to travel and where it's not. The one time when Atom and Hawkgirl were stuck in the past for 3 years because they couldn't pick them up any sooner is one example. Also, in that same episode, Hawk and Atom started to forget their other lives, ...
