With Barry Allen in prison and Ralph Dibney taking point as the hero of Central City, The Flash delivered a hilarious Easter egg of a brief crossover with Legends of Tomorrow.

Remember Beebo?

The most recent episode of Legends of Tomorrow saw the team reunite with the younger version of Martin Stein just before Christmas, right after the elder Stein died during the “Crisis on Earth-X.” What ensued was a time-traveling version of Jingle All the Way with vikings, gods, and a furry blue Furbie-like toy called Beebo that the vikings accidentally worshipped.

In The Flash, Beebo pops up a thousand years later in Central City to play the unwitting victim to the millennial Trickster that’s the son of Mark Hamill’s character.

When the younger Trickster sets up a maniacal gameshow that makes Rick Sanchez’s fatal superhero game look tame by comparison, he and his mother make a show of displaying the potency of their custom pink acid. Their very first victim as a demonstration?

Beebo, god of war.

The Trickster’s acid can harm even Ralph’s seemingly impervious skin. When the insane game show starts running, we have to watch the acid melt a poor Beebo as a demonstration. This stuff is killer.

When confronted with his own mortality — and a squirt gun full of the acid — Ralph gets cold feet about the whole superhero thing, leaving Vibe and Killer Frost to investigate the scene. Frost takes down a small squad of flying Beebo bombs by freezing them, but not before they get captured.

Because of course, The Trickster has a trick planned to capture them. Cisco and Caitlin enter the game show with the imminent threat being a faceful of acid if the prize wheel spins just the right way.

The Trickster returns for more tricks.

Ultimately, it’s up to Ralph Dibney to emerge as “The Elongated Man” to save the day.

As a hero, Ralph channels his best impression of Jim Carrey’s character in The Mask. If you don’t believe me, just watch this clip from the episode, in which Ralph puts a bomb into his belly, blows up like a big balloon, and then burps away the pain. Most of Ralph’s superhero encounters follow this pattern. He boasts a bit and belches away threats, practically pleading for attention.

This is what The Flash becomes when The Flash himself is in prison.

It isn’t until things get really serious and Ralph ruins his first suit that he gets a serious upgrade. We’ve seen Ralph grow in the past under Barry’s tutelage, but in “The Elongated Knight Rises,” we’re finally led to believe that Ralph might have what it takes to become a bonafide hero. Of course, it takes some gentle urging from Barry before he gets there, but he does.

Ralph's new costume finally looks like something a superhero would actually wear.

Ralph’s able to save the day in the end and get formally crowned as The Elongated Man by the local media, but not before a grand total of four Beebos die.

What a tragedy.


The Flash airs Tuesdays on The CW at 8 p.m. Eastern.

One of the latest challenges to hit Fortnite: Battle Royale requires a steady aim and lightning fast reflexes if you want to succeed at the shooting galleries in this Week 4 challenge, though you’ll have to find them first. Less serious dancing is reserved for a totally different challenge this week.

The Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 6 Hunting Party Challenge continues, and much like Week 3, the focus of the new secret loading screen is Fable, the character that looks like a badass Little Red Riding Hood. We’ve got all the details on how to solve this new loading screen puzzle and the secret this week, but just like in Week 2, there’s a secret banner instead of a battle star.

Gone are the days of “search between” and “treasure maps,” because Fortnite: Battle Royale’s location-based challenges these days involve multiple steps and dancing on top of random landmarks. So where can players dance on top of a Clock Tower, a Pink Tree, and a Porcelain Throne?

Fortnite Season 6, Week 4 kicked off Thursday morning, and with it came the typical seven new challenges. This week, however, they’re all fairly difficult, or otherwise just involve a lot of work. The fifth challenge initially just reads “Dance on top of a Clock Towers,” but it’s essentially one of the multi-stage challenges that we’ve seen before. This time around, however, it’s a bit misleading because it doesn’t actually say “Stage 1” in the title.

With less than two weeks before Halloween, Epic Games is starting to get a little bit more festive with a new Fortnite: Battle Royale Challenge in Week 4. “Ring the doorbell of a house with an opponent inside in different matches” is a very wordy way of telling players to go trick-or-treating.

Rumor has it Nintendo is teaming up with Square Enix to bring another new character to the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate roster. Leaks have been few and far between (possibly because the Final Fantasy developer is doing its best to keep the secret), but new information may have finally confirmed exactly which new Square Enix character is coming to Smash Bros. Ultimate.
