Last night’s episode of Legends of Tomorrow ended on a shocking cliffhanger as we learned that the Time Masters have been in league with Vandal Savage all along. Now, Rip Hunter and his team are being held captive and the immortal villain has returned to 2166 in order to take over the Earth and murder the captain’s family.
Today, The CW has released a first look at what’s to come in next week’s episode – titled “Destiny” – and the official synopsis below also sheds some light on what we should expect.
Being in the vicinity of the Time Masters leaves Rip (Arthur Darvill) and Rory (Dominic Purcell) incredibly disturbed for very different reasons. Meanwhile, Sara (Caity Lotz) takes over the Waverider, Kendra (Ciara Renée) is reunited with Carter (guest star Falk Hentschel) and Snart (Wentworth Miller) decides he might be a hero after all. Olatunde Osunsanmi directed the episode with story by Marc Guggenheim and teleplay by Phil Klemmer & Chris Fedak.
The promo above doesn’t reveal a whole lot more than that, but it does provide a very intriguing look at how the Legends of Tomorrow will handle being within the clutches of the Time Masters. This is the penultimate episode of the show’s first season, so big things are no doubt on the way as we race toward the finale and a battle with Savage.
Despite occasionally feeling a tad too much like Doctor Who, Legends of Tomorrow has not disappointed, and with a second season already confirmed, it’s going to be interesting to see how these final two episodes set that up, especially with reports doing the rounds that a new hero will arrive in the finale and two more will be added when the show returns next year.
