Just yesterday, we were speculating on whether a return to be made by Jonah Hex was imminent on Legends of Tomorrow. After all, the cast could be seen clad in attire they’d normally don when venturing back to the Wild West in some new images, thus throwing much fuel on the fire.
Well, as it turns out, we were right because ComicBook.com has confirmed that Johnathon Schaech’s Hex will indeed return for the season finale, set to air on April 9. Right now, it’s unknown as to what specific role he’ll play – or how big – or why what we’ll assume will be the final showdown with Mallus will take place in his time period.
Having appeared in two episodes in prior seasons, Hex has always felt like a natural fit for the series. In fact, it’s my personal hope that the producers continue mining DC’s rich mythology to incorporate characters from other time periods down the road, namely Anthro and Kamandi.
Up until this information came to light, we were pretty sure the Wild West-themed episode was coming soon enough, given how the powers that be were willing to declassify images on social media. But after taking into account that production on season 3 just wrapped, it makes sense that those be among the most recent of treats shared.
For more on what the immediate future holds for the series, be sure to check out the synopsis for next week’s outing, “The Curse of the Earth Totem”:
THE DEVIL’S TRIANGLE — When Sara (Caity Lotz) decides to take some private time, the Legends pursue a lead on the whereabouts of the long-lost Earth Totem. Without Sara’s knowledge, the Legends find themselves in 1717 to hunt for Blackbeard’s long-lost treasure, but in true Legends fashion things go awry. Meanwhile, Ray (Brandon Routh) feels guilty about something he has done and tries to make amends, which lands him in even bigger trouble. Dominc Purcell, Nick Zano, Maise Richardson-Sellers and Nick Zano also star. Chris Tammaro directed the episode written by Grainne Godfree & Ubah Mohamed (#312). Original airdate 2/26/2018.
Legends of Tomorrow airs on Monday nights on The CW.
