"But what if I can't be the person you need?"
"Let's be honest, neither of us needs anybody. Right? But you are who I want."
Sara Lance and Ava Sharpe
"The Eggplant, The Witch & The Wardrobe" is the twelfth episode of the fourth season of DC's Legends of Tomorrow, and the sixty-third episode overall. It aired on April 22, 2019.


With darkness on the rise in 2019, the team realizes that a new host of problems have risen as they have been cleaning up history. Sara tries to save Ava from a fate worse than death while battling her own demons. Nora and Constantine work together to take down a powerful demon. Meanwhile, Zari gets unsolicited advice from Mona, Charlie, and even Rory.[1]


Preparation ran from November 1 until November 9, 2018. Shooting ran from November 13 until November 27, 2018, with a break on November 22 and 23 for US Thanksgiving.[2]


  • The episode's title is a reference to the first Chronicles of Narnia novel The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
    • When Ava and Sara finish putting together the wardrobe in Ava's purgatory, Sara says "Let's go to Narnia", referring to the fact that a certain magical wardrobe creates a door between Narnia and Earth in the aforementioned story.
  • When Ava and Sara see how each other would look by the 2060s, only Ava is noticeably barely changed (likely due to being a clone); Sara on the other hand looks very old (very likely due to her strenuous lifestyle).
  • This is the first episode since "Tender is the Nate" to feature all of the series regulars or show Nate using his Steel powers.
  • Nate calls his father's vision "Jur-magic Park", a reference to the 1993 film Jurassic Park.
  • Gary tells Nate the conspiracies, embezzling and paper trails makes him feel like Julia Roberts in the 2000 film Erin Brockovich.
  • Nate spewing his drink on Ray was improvised.[3]
  • Neron can be heard whistling "Pop! Goes the Weasel" several times throughout this episode.
