Showrunner Eric Wallace says The CW superhero show felt it was important to "honor the character" of Ralph Dibny's super-flexible hero even though Sawyer had been fired for old racist and misogynistic tweets. "In order to wrap that up, which we're going to do at the top of season 7, Ralph has to be part of that," Wallace tells EW. "Now thank goodness, Ralph is a guy who can change faces and his appearance in many ways. Without giving any spoilers away, there are a couple of ways that we can have Elongated Man still appear in at least one episode this season to wrap that storyline up, that gets us what we need and still allows fans to say goodbye to the character, at least for the indefinite future."
