The CW has released the first official images from this week’s episode of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and after spending a few weeks in the 1970s, we now heading to the 80s. Among the reveals in the gallery above is Stephanie Corneliussen as Valentina Vostock, a character better known to comic book fans as Negative Woman. It also seems as if Firestorm will be getting into some serious trouble here.
For further details on what to expect from this episode of Legends of Tomorrow (titled “White Knights”), here’s the synopsis:
When Vandal Savage (guest star Casper Crump) retreats behind the Iron Curtain in the early 1980s, a string of nuclear scientists begins to mysteriously disappear. The team follows Vandal’s trail straight into the heart of the Soviet Union in an attempt to find his next target. Ray (Brandon Routh) tries to bond with a beautiful Soviet scientist, Valentina Vostock (guest star Stephanie Corneliussen), in the hopes of finding out Vandal’s next move. When Valentina rejects him, it’s Snart (Wentworth Miller) to the rescue. Stein (Victor Garber) pushes Jax (Franz Drameh) to be better, which frustrates Jax and ultimately threatens the Firestorm matrix. Rip (Arthur Darvill) asks Sara (Caity Lotz) to train Kendra (Ciara Renée). Antonio Negret directed the episode written by Sarah Nicole Jones & Phil Klemmer.
It’s clearly going to be a busy episode then, but if there’s one thing that Legends of Tomorrow has nailed so far, it’s the ability to handle an ensemble cast in a satisfying manner.
The quest to take down Vandal Savage is really heating up, and seeing Captain Cold take on a very different sort of role in the series as he attempts to romance Negative Woman should be a lot of fun.
