The CW has released the first promo for next week’s episode of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and it seems as if Rip Hunter is about to get an offer he may be unable to refuse. Will he agree to give up his mission and return to his fellow Time Masters, or is stopping Vandal Savage more important?
Based on how personal (and violent) things got between them in last night’s instalment of the Arrow/The Flash spinoff, it’s hard to imagine him saying yes to this deal. However, he certainly appears to be tempted.
For further details on what to expect from this episode of Legends of Tomorrow (titled White Knights), here’s the synopsis:
When Vandal Savage (guest star Casper Crump) retreats behind the Iron Curtain in the early 1980s, a string of nuclear scientists begins to mysteriously disappear. The team follows Vandal’s trail straight into the heart of the Soviet Union in an attempt to find his next target. Ray (Brandon Routh) tries to bond with a beautiful Soviet scientist, Valentina Vostock (guest star Stephanie Corneliussen), in the hopes of finding out Vandal’s next move. When Valentina rejects him, it’s Snart (Wentworth Miller) to the rescue. Stein (Victor Garber) pushes Jax (Franz Drameh) to be better, which frustrates Jax and ultimately threatens the Firestorm matrix. Rip (Arthur Darvill) asks Sara (Caity Lotz) to train Kendra (Ciara Renée). Antonio Negret directed the episode written by Sarah Nicole Jones & Phil Klemmer.
While we don’t see much of what’s described there in the promo, it sounds like the main focus of this episode of Legends of Tomorrow is actually going to be Captain Cold romancing Valentina Vostock, a character most comic book fans will know better as Negative Woman. Whether or not the show will feature her using that villainous moniker remains to be seen of course.
One thing we do know is that Legends of Tomorrow is quickly shaping up to be the best DC Comics series on TV, and seeing what’s next for this ragtag team of heroes and villains is very exciting indeed.
