Meanwhile, Savage has come up with the ultimate plan to use Thanagarian technology (the meteorite that gave him Kendra and Carter their immortality) and Kendra and Carter’s blood to rewrite history by going back to ancient times. Savage’s plan requires him to be in multiple timelines to complete this task. Lucky for him, he’s immortal and has a time ship which helps him accomplish this plan. However, the legends also have the waverider, which gives the audience the opportunity to see multiple timeline battles between Savage and the heroes across time.
After the battle, there’s the issue with the meteorites, which still have the ability to destroy the planet if not disposed of. The heroes are able to destroy them in two timelines, but not in another.

In the aftermath of saving time and the planet, Rip decides that with the Time Masters out of commission, someone needs to safeguard time.
