Trivia

  • The episode's title is a direct play on the series' name and the fact that Zari is stuck in the form of a house-cat.
  • This episode marks Amy Pemberton's third physical appearance as Gideon in human form. She had previously appeared in "Land of the Lost" and "Here I Go Again" as a neural projection in a virtual hallucination, along with being featured on a photograph in "Aruba-Con".
    • In one timeline, she is shown as a fully-human holographic projection, and in another she is shown as an active member of the 'Sirens of Space-Time' along with Sara and Ava; considering her code name of 'Hard Drive', the simplest explanation is that this version of Gideon is essentially the ship's android avatar, much like Rommie in Gene Roddenbery's Andromeda.
  • This episode marks the first time the Legends are called "Legends of Tomorrow" on-screen.
  • Thanks to the "Puppets of Tomorrow" timeline, this episode also marks the first appearance of the White Canary suit since "Beebo the God of War"​ and the first appearance of the Steel suit since "Here I Go Again"​.
  • In one of the timelines, Ray Palmer, Nate Heywood, Mick Rory, and Garima are a group called "Custodians of the Chronology", which may be a parody of the film Guardians of the Galaxy
    • Garima's role as a feared swordswoman and the only female founding member resembles that of Guardians member Gamora. The two also have similar names.
    • The Custodians' title card sequence is a parody of the title card sequence of the 1984-1987 series Airwolf.
  • In another timeline, Sara Lance, Ava Sharpe and Gideon form a group called "Sirens of Space-Time", which is a parody of the Charlie's Angels franchise.
    • Hank says "Good morning Sirens" to which they reply "Good morning Hank" . This sounds exactly like "Good morning Angels" " Good morning Charlie" from "Charlie's Angels".
    • The pose struck by the Sirens of Space-Time is highly influenced by the logo of "Charlie's Angels".
  • When Gideon tells the Custodians that they missed a message from Barry Allen, Oliver Queen and Kara Zor-El, Ray says “Sounds like the annual crossover”. This is a reference to the fact that the Elseworlds​ crossover event aired the same week as the episode did, being broadcast back-to-back with "Elseworlds, Part 2"​.
    • Nate responds with "That's gonna be a hard pass", referring to the fact that although the last two Arrowverse crossovers included the Legends, they aren't a part of this one.
    • They also jokingly said "I bet this year they'll swap costumes.", referring to the life-switch that happened to Barry and Oliver during the crossover, which made them wear each other's superhero suits.
  • Both the Custodians and the Sirens referred to the Shape-shifters as their "white whales", referencing the Moby Dick franchise and its characters.
  • When Ava is reading Mick's novel in the med bay, it's title is shown to be "Heatwaves", which is a reference to his alter-ego.
  • When Charlie and Constantine are trying to explain the alternate timeline to a morose Ava, she replies, "I don't have time for this timey-wimey crap." This is likely a reference to the Tenth Doctor of the BBC series Doctor Who, who often refers to time as "a big ball of wibbly wobbly, timey wimey stuff."
  • All the weapons the Sirens took while getting ready for a mission have been used by a current or former member of the Legends' team. Sara took Mick's Heat Gun, Ava got Leonard Snart's Cold Gun and Gideon took Rip Hunter's pistol.
    • Ironically, Snart and Ava are Sara's longest love interests on the show.
    • This marks the first appearance of the Cold Gun since "Zari" and the first appearance of Rip's gun since "Fellowship of the Spear".
  • Upon seeing the Puppets of Tomorrow, Constantine asks, "What the Fraggle Rock is going on here?" referring to the 1983 TV series of the same name.

Goofs

  • Zari doesn't act like a goofy kids' show character like the rest of the Puppets of Tomorrow when she turns into a puppet.
    • Could be explained due to her current anomalous status being caught in the time paradox rendering her slightly immune to the spell.
  • Why preventing Desmond from being sent to hell causes the initial change is never addressed. Constantine still would have been spooked by Neron into joining the Legends for his own safety.
  • Constantine says that by banishing Neron to hell, he also unintentionally sent Desmond to hell due to the latter bonding his soul to the demon in exchange for Neron sparing John. However, as seen later on after Neron bonded with Ray Palmer,[2] Neron using Desmond as a vessel should've also sent Desmond to hell. This means Desmond would've been in hell already; regardless of John's effort to banish Neron.
