The Legends of Tomorrow are...lost in time?
Rip Hunter's team reformed in the wake of Vandal Savage's demise, and now the misfit heroes have a new mission - to become a temporal police force capable of assuming the role of the defunct Time Masters. Unfortunately, a little snafu has come to the fore...
"Dr. Nate Heywood (Nick Zano), an unconventional and charming historian, is thrust into the action upon making a shocking discovery - the Legends are scattered throughout time," The CW revealed on Wednesday. "Nate must find a way to rescue season one's beloved team of heroes and rogues..."
Is this why Brandon Routh (Ray) was giving his best Castaway audition while filming for the premiere? The poor man was stranded in time once before, and although he was trapped in the racist and homophobic white-picket fence life of the 1950s, at least that time he had running water.
In the process of reuniting, the Legends will add a new member. Amaya Jiwe (Maisie Richardson-Sellers), aka Vixen of the Justice Society of America, will hop on the Waverider. Once our heroes are back in one place, another “mystery looms - the fate of former captain Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill).”
Well, that can’t be good. Considering Rip is the leader of the pack, we expect the wayward Time Master will rejoin the fold sooner rather than later. Nick’s life, however, will take a tumultuous turn when he, like his grandfather Commander Steel, develops powers.
“Ultimately, the Legends will clash with foes both past and present, to save the world from a mysterious new threat,” The CW teased.
Legends of Tomorrow will return to The CW on Oct. 13 at 8 p.m. ET.
