Much like many of you, we’re anxiously awaiting the midseason premiere of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and it’s not just because of the return of the Waverider crew – we want to see more of the Legion of Doom!
Fortunately for us, both the official synopsis and the newly released images contained in the video above confirm that we’ll see Damien Darhk and Malcolm Merlyn, at the very least. Fingers will remain crossed that the Reverse Flash shows up, too, but he may want to start laying low if Black Flash deems it necessary to start appearing on other series in the Arrowverse.
In addition to all that, expect to see the Legends meet up with a young George Lucas. How heavily involved the filmmaker becomes in this episode remains to be seen, but better judgment says it will be but a cameo. Then again, who would’ve thought Einstein would have played such a substantial role in one of this season’s early installments?
Speaking of that synopsis, be sure to give it a read below:
LOST MEMORIES — When Damien Darhk (guest star Neal McDonough) and Malcolm Merlyn (guest star John Barrowman) try to capture Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) in 1967, they create an Aberration big enough to draw the attention of the Legends. However, when the team arrives they discover that Rip has no memories of his past due to “time drift” and is just a graduate film student. After trying to convince Rip of who he was, they discover that he possesses an incredibly powerful artifact known as the Spear of Destiny, which the Legion of Doom is after. Ray (Bradon Routh) and Nate (Nick Zano) realize that the Aberration has also affected them personally making it difficult to help the team. Meanwhile, Rory (Dominic Purcell) asks Stein (Victor Garber) for help and makes him promise to keep it a secret from the team. Caity Lotz, Franz Drameh and Maisie Richardson-Sellers also star. Dermott Downs directed the episode written by Keto Shimizu & Chris Fedak.
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow returns with new episodes on Tuesday, January 24 on The CW.
