"That thing's as real as Santa Clause."
"Shh, Gary's in the room!"
A few weeks ago, I saw a quote from an interview with the cast and crew. (Sorry, I don't remember where I saw it.)
They were talking about what it would be like for Astra to join the Waverider, and said something like this:
"We get to see Astra outside of her comfort zone, which is interesting because her comfort zone is actual Hell.
So, what is her own personal hell?"
Obviously, Astra's biggest fear is loss of control, which at the moment means having to depend on other people for results.
She understandably has trust issues. She only ever trusted one person, and then learned that that person was just using her. So right now she doesn't want to trust anyone, ever.
She also never learned that working together towards a common goal is even something that works. But she certainly has the right teachers for that!
When she got frustrated with the Legends, she asked for two very simple things: to not have to change who she is, and for her ideas and contributions taken seriously. And as soon as she pointed that out ... Done!
I mean, I'm already a blind, time-traveling paragon who can see the future, so might as well just add wannabe god to the list.

And OMG, Zari putting the fork down her shirt to hide it!

The best part, of course, was the developing relationship between Rory and his kid. I loved his big frowny face telling her that he'd make sure she could go to the school she wanted, and then walked off during the tour, assuming that she was ashamed of him.
He even told the tour that Nate
was Lita's dad.
I loved the scene where the two of them realized that each one is proud of the other, while each thinking themselves
not good enough:
Mick: "You're twice the person they'll ever be."
Lita: "Yeah, but so are you."
The look on Mick's face when she said that, he practically melted.
That is the kind of thing he has rarely been told in his life, much less coming from someone who's opinion matters to him!
And, so awesome that they created a sorority to pass along their approach as Legends! A society of misfits, working together, celebrating what makes them each different!
And the beer pong! Isn't that the most Legends thing ever? How do we save the world? By defeating a god! At beer pong!!!
