"At least we got a road trip, at least it was with you guys. You know, maybe that's what "family" is: the people you don't mind being annoyed by."

"The Getaway" is the tenth episode of the fourth season of DC's Legends of Tomorrow, and the sixty-first episode overall. It aired on April 8, 2019.

Synopsis

When Hank commandeers the Waverider in 1973, the Legends find themselves on the run in an RV after kidnapping the President who is only able to tell the truth. With the help of Constantine, they discover the reason that none of them can lie making for an uncomfortable family road trip. Meanwhile, Nate and Zari, with the help of Nora and Gary, work together to find out what Hank is really up to.[1]

Trivia

  • The title of the episode refers to the RV the Legends travel in.
  • This is the first episode of the series not to feature Jes Macallan (Ava Sharpe) after being promoted to a series regular.
  • The episode features multiple references to Alan J. Pakula's film All the President's Men; without Nixon's exposure, the film was never released, which resulted in Robert Redford's career floundering.
    • As Mick points out, the domino effect of Redferd not having a successful career is "no Sundance, no indie film, no artful nudity".
      • This marks the first time Mick has shown initiative to fix the timeline.
  • Hank serving as the interim Time Bureau director may be a parallel to the Sirens of Space-Time timeline from "Legends of To-Meow-Meow".
  • With Mona officially joining the Legends this episode, this marks the first time the team has had a female majority (3 male, 4 female) unless one counts Gideon as a member or includes Ava's visits in the first half of the season.
  • Constantine's spell for removing Ma'at's truth roach, "Vi veri universum vivus vici", is Latin for "By the power of truth, I, while living, have conquered the universe". This phrase was also seen in the DC Comics film, V for Vendetta.
  • Hank mistakenly addresses Gideon as "Siri" and "Alexa" (the virtual assistants developed by Apple and Amazon respectively) when trying to operate the Waverider.
  • Constantine saying "Let's put Dick in a box" as he puts Richard Nixon in the closet may be a reference to SNL's debut single by the same name.
  • Under the influence of the truth roach, Ray expresses his belief that Han didn't shoot first in the 1977 film Star Wars: A New Hope.
