Congratulations are in order for The legends of tomorrow‘s Sarah and Ava, who got engaged for the premiere of season 6 on Sunday – albeit in a rather casual way.
After Sarah was abducted by aliens, Ava learned – through a video recorded by David Bowie (yes, this one) – that her friend was planning to ask the question the night she disappeared. To accept the offer, Ava first had to look for Sarah, so the Waverider crew enlisted the help of a woman named Spooner (a regular new series by Lisette Chavez), who was abducted by ET as a child and claimed she could communicate with them.

So, although Avalance is already engaged, the couple is really in the longest relationship and finding a way back to each other in space will be a struggle. “This is not an easy and simple resolution that I know will be a disappointment to many people,” co-author Phil Klemmer told TVLine. “Sarah and Ava never expected to do this, but they are both strong and have never questioned the basis of their relationship. So we had to come up with external pressure, and there’s nothing more pressing than being abducted and taken to an alien planet by a psychopathic super genius who saw Sarah as his best reward. “
As Sarah tries to survive her new predicament, “Ava will be in a story in which she tries to recover from Sarah’s loss and manage all this grief and abandonment that will erupt from the rest of the team in a rather volatile ways, ”Klemmer visualizes.
The couple’s separation is also “not just a small three-episode rainbow,” warns Klemmer. However, Sarah and Ava’s relationship is still palpable during these distant episodes. “I feel that even if they are not together, they exist in their hearts,” Klemer added. “I feel like Ava’s story and Sarah’s story, although separately, they really talk in a really romantic way. I feel that being separated from someone is more romantic than being with them. We all like to feel pain. It’s sexier! “
As for what Sarah’s kidnapper wants with her – Gary was sent to kidnap Captain Lance, but eventually fell in love with earthlings – Klemmer says the blonde has several qualities that make her worthy of the title of “typical man” . “She survived and died countless times, and she was turned into a paragon and a quasi-deity and survived the League of Assassins,” Klemer said. “She has this indomitable spirit and has moved away from so many tragedies with the ability to stay in her to love, to believe that life is fine. I think it was taken for that reason, because space is a big, empty, hostile, and deadly place where only the spirit of Sarah Lance is supposed to survive. “
