Showrunner teases Behrad, Zari and the Legends’ fate
The previous episode of season 5 revealed a major twist. As seen in episode 13, Behrad and Zari, both versions 1.0 and 2.0, have reunited. Fans wondered how their reunion affects the flow of the forthcoming episode’s plot. Fortunately, showrunner Marc Guggenheim revealed the fate of the trio in the penultimate chapter. Guggenheim stated,
“Certainly, the big thing that this season has set up is the idea that Behrad and Zari 1.0 cannot coexist. It leads to, quite frankly, one of the most emotional moments of the series.”
The showrunner further revealed that the Legends would probably struggle with carrying the two different timelines in their head. Therefore, the challenge for the team would be how they will move forward with the new circumstances established.
Legends of Tomorrow season 5 finale will air on the 2nd of June at CW.
