The CW has released a first look at next week’s episode of Legends of Tomorrow, and it’s clear that things are about to get a whole lot worse for the team now that they’re back on their time travelling adventures. It was in tonight’s instalment that they helped thwart the “Invasion,” but with the Legion of Doom about to assemble, aliens are the least of their worries.
As you can see in the promo above, the Reverse-Flash and Damien Darhk are about to recruit Malcolm Merlyn to their villainous group. However, the biggest surprise here is the return of Wentworth Miller’s Captain Cold. He sacrificed himself in the season 1 finale of Legends of Tomorrow, but this version looks a lot more like his former villainous self.
For more on what to expect from this episode – titled “The Chicago Way” – here’s the official synopsis:
When a new Time Aberration is discovered by the Legends, they find themselves headed to 1927 Chicago. The Legends quickly realize that they have been set up by Eobard Thawne (guest star Matt Letscher), Damien Darhk (guest star Neal McDonough) and the newest member of the Legion of Doom, Malcolm Merlyn (guest start John Barrowman). While everyone is trying to help fix what they think is the mission, Jax (Franz Drameh) encourages a reluctant Stein (Victor Garber) to share his secret with the other Legends. Stein is taken captive and Sara (Caity Lotz) must make the tough choice of either stopping the Legion of Doom or saving Stein. Meanwhile, Rory (Dominic Purcell) gets an unexpected visitor and is not sure how to handle it. Brandon Routh, Nick Zano and Maisie Richardson-Sellers also star. Ralph Hemecker directed the episode written by Sarah Nicole Jones & Ray Utarnachitt.
How exactly Captain Cold has been resurrected is something which will probably be addressed next week, but given the Reverse-Flash’s habit of travelling through time, it’s likely that he’s recruited an earlier version of the Rogue before he ended up joining the Legends and becoming a superhero like his arch nemesis The Flash.
