The CW has released the first promo for next week’s episode of Legends of Tomorrow, and in it we see what happens when the team arrives in the 1980s. Rory doesn’t seem overly keen on being there, but he’ll need to get used to it pretty fast with Damien Darhk now in a position of power in the White House. Of course, the Legends will have some back up in the form of Obsidian, a hero we met a younger version of back in the “Justice Society of America” episode.
Darhk was the big bad of Arrow‘s fourth season, and while he somewhat underwhelmed there, he’s so far been way more impressive as an ally of the Reverse-Flash. That character’s plan has yet to be revealed, though we’ve known for a while now that he’ll ultimately end up assembling the Legion of Doom (likely so he can do something to the timeline which hurts Barry Allen).
For more on what to expect from next week’s episode of Legends of Tomorrow – titled “Compromised” – here’s the official synopsis:
When the Legends trace a timequake to President Reagan’s White House, they are shocked to discover their old enemy Damien Darhk (guest star Neal McDonough) is now a Senior Adviser to Reagan. As the team works to uncover what Darhk has up his devious sleeve, Sara (Caity Lotz) struggles with the choice of getting revenge or helping with the team’s larger mission. Thinking that the JSA members could be of help, Amaya (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) and Nate (Nick Zano) break into the JSA and are surprised at what they find. Meanwhile, Stein (Victor Garber) tries to prevent his younger self from creating an even bigger time Abberation. Franz Drameh, Dominic Purcell and Brandon Routh also star. David Geddes directed the episode written by Keto Shimizu & Grainne Godfree.
Tonight’s instalment of Legends of Tomorrow featured a few interesting things, such as Ray Palmer being granted Captain Cold’s cold gun now that he’s no longer able to suit up as The Atom. Watching his bromance with Rory continue to develop has been a lot of fun and promises to be just one of many highlights in next week’s episode, which so far, seems like it’s going to be worth tuning into.
