- —Sara Lance
|The Legends plan to vanquish Mallus by using the totems doesn't go as planned, forcing Rip to improvise. The team finds itself regrouping in the Wild West where they run into their old pal Jonah Hex. Sara leaves Ray in charge of watching Damien Darhk, while she comes up with a new plan. Meanwhile, Amaya is determined to find a way to use the totems to destroy Mallus.|
- The title references the 1966 film The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, a film which, like the majority of this episode, is set in the Old West.

- When the Legends use the totems to create something to fight Mallus, Sara says to think of something pure and thanks to what Nate came up with, they end up forming a giant Beebo doll. This may be a reference to the Stay Puft marshmallow man from the Ghostbusters franchise, where the titular team is told that the destructor would come, taking a form chosen by the group. Three of the four present don't choose anything, but the fourth member of the team tries to think of something harmless and ends up summoning a giant Stay Puft marshmallow man.

- This episode and the last episode, "" suggest that Donald Trump succeeds Barack Obama as president of the United States in the same way as in reality. However, as of the crossover, Susan Brayden is president in of the United States on Earth-1.
- It is possible that Trump tried and failed to become president.
