The first part of Crisis On Infinite Earths surprisingly fixed a long-standing plot hole created by the first season of Legends of Tomorrow.
While fans are still devastated by the first episode of Crisis On Infinite Earths, the show used the multiverse as a way of cleaning up a previous plot hole from the first season of Sara Lance’s time travelling adventures in Legends of Tomorrow. When the 2046 version of Oliver Queen was introduced during the first season of Legends of Tomorrow, Star City had been left in ruins and overrun by villains. but later flash forwards in Arrow and future Legends of Tomorrow episodes showed very different versions of the future. Crisis On Infinite Earths revisited the older Oliver Queen when Sara Lance, Lois Lane and Brainiac-5 went looking for Superman’s infant son, Jon after the destruction of Argo City.
The crossover explained that Jon’s pod had travelled through the multiverse and landed on Earth-16, where an older Oliver Queen was living in Star City 2046. It’s revealed that the team in Legends of Tomorrow had actually travelled to Earth-16 during the first season,rather than forward into their own timeline, because they weren’t experienced enough in piloting the Waverider. It allowed the older Oliver Queen to at least take comfort in knowing that on a different Earth, his life was much different. It seems like a complicated way of tying up a loose end, but it rounds off the Star City 2046 story nicely.
