Tonight’s episode of Legends of Tomorrow brought the “Invasion!” crossover to a close in style, but it also nicely set the stage for what’s to come in the series. Martin Stein is hiding the fact that he’s created an aberration in the form of a daughter who previously didn’t exist, while clues about Rip Hunter’s disappearance were offered in the message left by the future Barry Allen.
How much of that will be addressed in next week’s midseason finale remains to be seen, but in the first official images from “The Chicago Way,” we get to see the Legends pay a visit to the 1920s. They’re there to try and stop the Reverse-Flash, but now that he’s recruited both Damien Darhk and Malcolm Merlyn to his Legion of Doom, that may very well be easier said that done.
For more on what to expect from this episode of Legends of Tomorrow, 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.
A newly released promo for Legends of Tomorrow‘s midseason finale also confirmed that Captain Cold will return, so the Legion will presumably be fully assembled by the time this episode comes to a close. What exactly the Reverse-Flash is up to hasn’t been determined, but we know that he’s only alive because of Flashpoint, so maybe he’s hoping to find a way he can save himself.
We’ll have to wait and see, but stay tuned for more on Legends of Tomorrow over the next week.
