How do you follow up a long love letter to E.T.: The Extraterrestrial that not only gave more insight into Ray’s optimism, but managed to reveal a lot about Zari and set up Jax’s plan to free Stein of Firestorm? You head for late 19th Century London. And as this preview of next week’s episode shows, the Legends will face something passing itself off as a vampire and a number of other Hammer Horror-inspired oddities in the London Fog.
While Legends has a way of using obscure characters for visual gags — like B’Wana Beast a few weeks back or Zari’s costume this week — is it possible we’ll see Lord Andrew Bennett and Mary, Queen of Blood from I … Vampire make their way into a story as more than a wink to DC Comics’ past? A quick look at the incomplete cast list suggests the Darkh family will be making a return appearance, but Legends is so confidant with its zany approach to DC lore that, perhaps, there is room enough for I … Vampire characters to appear on the show. And if not next week, the producers should look into it. I seriously doubt they’re being held back for a feature film adaptation.
