Last night’s episode of Legends of Tomorrow left all of our jaws on the floor when The CW series made the bold decision to kill off fan-favourite bad guy, Captain Cold. Embracing his new heroic persona, the character sacrificed himself to save the Atom and his best friend Heat Wave, and now the team has some real motivation to take down Vandal Savage next week.
For more details on what to expect from the season finale of Legends of Tomorrow (titled “Legendary”), here’s the official synopsis:
After the numerous sacrifices the team has made since the beginning of this ride, Rip (Arthur Darvill) decides that it’s time they each decide their own destiny and returns them to Central City a few months after they first left. Returned to their normal lives, each team member must individually decide if they are willing to sacrifice everything in order to save the world. Meanwhile, Sara (Caity Lotz) visits with her father (guest star Paul Blackthorne) who delivers some heartbreaking news about her sister. Dermott Downs directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti & Chris Fedak and teleplay by Phil Klemmer & Marc Guggenheim.
Wentworth Miller has actually signed a very unique sounding deal to become a recurring presence in not only season two of Legends of Tomorrow, but other superhero shows on The CW as well, so we clearly haven’t seen the last of Captain Cold.
Regardless, it’s obvious that this is going to be a huge episode of Legends of Tomorrow, and it should be fun to see how the team deal with Savage and how that sets things up for season two.
