The CW has today released the official description for the April 7th episode of Legends of Tomorrow, and it reveals that the team’s quest to bring down Vandal Savage will take a very unexpected turn when Rip Hunter puts a difficult and divisive decision in front of them in exchange for bringing them one step closer to stopping the villain.
For more details on what to expect from this episode of Legends of Tomorrow, here’s the description for “Progeny”:
Rip (Arthur Darvill) tells the team they are headed to the future to take out a powerful ally that Savage (guest star Casper Crump) needs in order to conquer the world. However, when Rip reveals the ally is a 14 year-old boy (guest star Cory Gruter-Andrew) who will one day grow into an evil dictator, the team is split about the morality of killing a child, even if it does save the world. Meanwhile, Sara (Caity Lotz) talks Snart (Wentworth Miller) through a rough patch and Ray (Brandon Routh) learns something that could impact his future with Kendra (Ciara Renée). David Geddes directed the episode written by Phil Klemmer and Marc Guggenheim.
This certainly sounds like a pretty interesting outing for the show, and it will no doubt be fun to see which side each of the team will come down on when faced with such a major moral dilemma.
