Legends of Tomorrow massive heroes will speculate to unite humanity in the season 4 finale, which airs on Monday. A Beebo Moment!
“They’ve sacrificed [before], but this is probably the most selfless thing they’ve done in the four years,” showrunner Phil Klemmer tells EW. “The thing we’re trying to resolve is where monsters belong in our world.”
However, this year’s finale “Hey, World!” finds them smack dab in the present, which is a change of pace for the Legends of Tomorrow team.
“The Legends’ last stand takes place very publicly on the world stage,” says Klemmer. “The consequence of coming out of the shadows of history to make a stand is that you’ve got eyeballs on you. As soon as they get eyeballs on them, the Legends start asking the questions: Do we wear [superhero] outfits? Do we use our superhero names? Do we use our powers? Are people going to accept us as real superheroes?”
Of course, pretending to be the Arrowverse’s Trinity fails to sway humanity, so they must sway people’s hearts the only way they know how: the Legends way. “That’s our Beebo moment for season 4 Legends of Tomorrow,” says Klemmer.
Speaking of Legends of Tomorrow season 5: “Hey, World!” will also set up the show’s fifth season in a substantial way. “It’s a big kick-off [for season 5], because the consequence of meddling in 2019 present day on a public stage is that you can’t go hit the reset button,” warns Klemmer. “We all felt there needed to be a completely different aesthetic to season 5, and in the closing minutes, we sort of announce, ‘Oh, we’re done with magic and we’re doing something totally different next year.’”
