DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow Synopsis Foretells Ra’s Al Ghul’s Return

The CW has released the official synopsis for the ninth episode of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, which is titled “Left Behind.” What looks to make this episode special is that the series once again takes advantage its ability to crossover with other DC shows that the network currently airs. In this case, it is Arrow.

Matt Nable’s portrayal of the deadly and cunning villain known as Ra’s al Ghul during Arrow’s third season left many fans stunned, including myself. Not only was the characterization of the League of Assassins’ leader spot on, but the show was also unafraid to embrace the mystical nature of the character, acknowledging that he has lived for centuries thanks to the healing waters of the Lazarus Pit. This was something that was deliberately omitted from the character’s first live action appearance in Batman Begins.

As can be expected, all good things must come to an end and Ra’s met his end at the hands of Oliver Queen in Arrow’s third season finale. Thanks to the fact that Legends is a time travelling show though, we can see Nable reprise his role, as Sara Lance intends to pay him a visit when the team is left stranded in the 1950’s.

If that prospect sounds enticing, be sure to read more in the synopsis below:

SARA RETURNS TO THE LEAGUE OF ASSASSINS – Ray (Brandon Routh), Sara (Caity Lotz) and Kendra (Ciara Renée) are shocked after they watch the Waverider fly off without them, leaving them stranded in the ‘50s. After waiting months for their teammates to come back, the three realize they must move on with their lives. Ray and Kendra bond as a couple but Sara decides to return to the League of Assassins and Ra’s al Ghul (guest star Matt Nable). John Showalter directed the episode written by Beth Schwartz & Grainne Godfree (LEG109). Original airdate 3/31/2016.

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow airs Thursday nights at 8:00 pm EST on The CW.
