"I know how infuriating humans can be. They have a hard time seeing past their own noses, don't they? But they can change if you help them to look deeper. And if they see the amount of good that you lot are capable of, then maybe... maybe they'll believe in you even when you doubt yourself."
Charlie to the magical fugitives

Trivia

  • The title references the name of the theme park that Hank wanted to create for Nate. It may also reference the Legends introducing themselves to the world in this episode.
  • This episode marks the first appearance of Vandal Savage since "Legendary".
  • After Ava and Zari comment that they should have reached out to the real Trinity (Supergirl, Green Arrow, and The Flash). Sara says that she did ask, but they said no. Nate responds that they (the Legends) "should have done the crossover", a meta-reference to the fact that the Legends were not in the Elseworlds crossover with Supergirl, Green Arrow, and Flash, despite confirmation in "Legends of To-Meow-Meow" from Gideon and Ray that they were invited, but chose not to attend.
    • Their exact response according to Sara, "hard pass", is identical to what Nate said in "Legends of To-Meow-Meow" about being invited to the crossover.
    • This is the first time The Trinity was name dropped in the shared multiverse.
    • In the comics, the Trinity is made up of Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman.
    • Despite her being from a different earth, and as far as has been chronicled has only been to Earth-1 to aid in crossover-related events (and a wedding), this episode reveals that Supergirl is actually known to its general public and popular enough to become an attraction at the theme park.
  • Astra takes sixteen soul coins of history's greatest monsters, including Joseph Stalin, the leader of the Soviet Union; Caligula, who is known as one of the worst and most violent Roman emperors of all time; Mary Tudor, who burned hundreds of Protestants on the stake for not being Catholic; and Genghis Khan, who took over most of Asia. There was also Lizzie Borden, John Wayne Gacy, Charles Manson, Grigori Rasputin, and eight other unidentified individuals.
  • When the Legends are discussing finishing Heyworld to teach the public that magical creatures are nothing to be afraid of, Sara says "If we build it..." Ava then finishes Sara's sentence by saying "They will come." This is a famous quote from the 1989 film Field of Dreams.
  • Nora hitting Ray's chest is a parallel to similar scenes in "No Country for Old Dads" and "Tagumo Attacks!!!".
  • Behrad wears the same shirt under his jacket as worn by Zari in "Here I Go Again".
  • As of this episode, the only remaining Legends from the first three seasons are Sara, Ray, Mick, Gideon, and Nate.
  • Constantine states that it will take more than a musical number to fix everything. This is a reference to "Séance and Sensibility", as well as an ironic foreshadowing of the Legends singing to bring Nate back from the dead.
    • Ironically, in The Flash episode "Duet", Barry Allen mentioned that his mother once said that "musicals have the power to make everything better", which is what ends up happening in this situation.
    • "Sweet Baby James", the song that Hank, the Legends and the people visiting Heyworld use to resurrect Nate, was also sung by Hank to soothe the Minotaur in "Tender is the Nate". Coincidentally, the same Minotaur plays accompaniment in this rendition.
      • The way that they start singing the song, with Hank's spirit being channeled through Mick to get everyone to join in, is similar to "Séance and Sensibility", in which Hank's spirit is also channeled through Mick, but for another reason.
        • When Mick first starts singing "Sweet Baby James" by having Hank's spirit channeled through him, the team notices Tabitha's staff glowing. Ray then says that if fear (which Neron tried to harness as energy to open a door to release all demons from Hell) could be energy, it makes sense that love can also be energy. This may be a reference to the Emotional Spectrum from the Green Lantern comics, where each color of the Emotional Spectrum represents a different emotion that can be harnessed through the use of a Power Ring to create light energy constructs for combat purposes. Among these are the Sinestro Corps, who channel the yellow energy of fear, and the Star Sapphires, who channel the pink energy of love.
          • In the comics, Ray Palmer was once a member of the Indigo Tribe, although this type of Lantern harnesses the indigo light of compassion.
      • Phil Klemmer has revealed that the singing in this scene was recorded live on-set, and Dominic Purcell (who portrays Mick) sang his line without rehearsal.[3]
      • As of this episode, it's possible that Nate's identity as Steel is no longer a secret; he continues to not use his helmet, and Sara calls him by name while gathering Heyworld's guests to sing.
      • When the Legends are trying to get Heyworld's visitors to join the singing, Gary says that they need everyone to hold hands. Nora then asks "Didn't they do this last year?" and Ava responds "We're part of the circle this time." This is a reference to the season 3 finale "The Good, The Bad and The Cuddly", in which the Legends (specifically Nate, Sara, Wally, Mick, Zari and Amaya) form a circle and hold hands to combine the powers of the Totems of Zambesi to conjure something to destroy Mallus.

Goofs

  • Gideon mentions the Anti-Meta-human Act of 2029, but it was previously mentioned in "Zari" that that law came into effect in 2021.
    • However, it's possible that ripples due to time travel caused the law to come into effect later than it had in the previous timeline, or that two Acts of the same name, passed in different years, exist, as often occurs in the real world.
  • After Nate's death, Sara is shown hugging Ava in the background from a front view, but she is suddenly next to Zari when the camera moves above them.
  • In "The Eggplant, The Witch & The Wardrobe", killing Neron would have required both Constantine and Nora restraining him for several minutes with magic, but in this episode, Constantine is able to kill Neron single-handedly without struggle seconds after the latter leaves Ray's body.
    • This may be because of the difference in vessels, or that Neron may have been severely weakened by being forcefully ejected from Ray's body due to breaking his deal with Ray that Neron could have Ray if the former didn't hurt Nate. But, Neron had been tricked into going back on that deal by being misled into killing Nate, when Neron had been made to think that he was actually killing John.
  • Ray and Zari can be heard singing at various points in "Sweet Baby James", though neither of their mouths are moving except in Zari's solo at the beginning of the song.
    • During the final chorus with the guests, Sara's lips are moving about a measure behind the audio.
