Uh oh! Zari (Tala Ashe) took matters into her own hands at the end of DC's Legends of Tomorrow
Season 3 Episode 6, "Helen Hunt." Instead of returning Helen of Troy to her own place and time, Zari decided to take her somewhere else instead.
Spoiler Alert: If you haven't watched "Helen Hunt" yet, stop reading and come back after you have watched the episode.
Where did Zari take Helen of Troy? Themyscira in 1253 B.C. Yes, the island from DC's Wonder Woman. It's likely the perfect place for Helen to spend the rest of her life, but it could have far-reaching consequences, since it alters the timeline.
Zari's decision won't sit well with the rest of the Legends team, but maybe she'll get away with it, "As far as what she does, I think it's a no-no," Brandon Routh (Ray) said. "But it's also a treat because it's all the kind of stuff that we'd like to be doing. But since we've been on the ship since the beginning with Rip, we're more stuck to following the rules than a newcomer."
This won't be the last time that Zari's going to try and change things either, "That's something you're going to see a lot of in the coming season is Zari trying to hack time, and try to find these loopholes," Ashe said. "And it's going to come to a head, actually, in [episode 10], especially with Sara. She's not cool with it."
Caity Lotz (Sara Lance) expands on Sara's feelings about Zari's rogue actions, "I think it is going to be annoying for Sara and something that she can't really tolerate on the team. She can't have somebody, like some new person coming in and messing everything up by trying to do her own thing. If she wants to be a part of this team she needs to be a part of the team."
Could the team be wrong in their thinking? Maisie Richardson-Sellers (Amaya Jiwe/Vixen) teases that Zari's beliefs alters the team in the future.
"[Zari's] sort of a rebel here, but I think if we try and change her, it's not going to work. So I think we have to either go aboard with that.. What's great is she gives us a new perspective on the ways that we can alter history, ,and maybe actually improve it rather than just correct it.," Richardson-Sellers said.
"So it's definitely an eye opener for the whole team, especially Sara who has very strict rules, she has to sort of reassess, and actually, in a later episode, Zari's way of doing things is the way that we will survive. So it's definitely a lesson as well."

The Wonder Woman reference wasn't the first or the last you'll see this season, Richardson-Sellers is excited for the connections, "That's what I love about the comic book world, is when you can tap in to different worlds, like Constantine, it's going to be fantastic as well. And just sort of mixing up, we saw Wally West at our first episode, and so it's just really playful to be able to jump around."
