The CW has released the first promo for next week’s episode of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and despite being brief, it shows off an action-packed glimpse of what’s to come now that Rip Hunter has assembled this ragtag group.
For further information, here’s the lengthy description for the second episode – rather unimaginatively titled “Pilot, Part 2” – which spells out where things go next:
Tipped off to Vandal Savage’s (guest star Casper Crump) whereabouts, the team infiltrates a munitions deal with Professor Stein (Victor Garber) as their leader. Surrounded by some of the toughest criminals in the world, things quickly go from bad to worse when Savage realizes they don’t belong there. A massive fight ensues and a piece of the Atom’s (Brandon Routh) suit falls off and into the wrong hands, which could potentially cause disastrous consequences in the future. Stein realizes the best way to retrieve the missing piece is to contact a brilliant man – his younger self.
He, Sara (Caity Lotz) and Jax (Franz Drameh) head off in search of young Martin Stein (guest star Graeme McComb), much to Rip’s (Arthur Darvill) consternation. Meanwhile, Snart (Wentworth Miller) and Rory (Dominic Purcell) plan to steal a key element in defeating Savage but still unsure of his new teammates, Ray (Brandon Routh) demands to come along on the mission. Carter (guest star Falk Hentschel) helps Kendra (Ciara Renée) remember something vital. Glen Winter directed the episode written by Phil Klemmer & Marc Guggenheim and Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kreisberg.
Vandal Savage may not have made much of an impact tonight (other than in that shocking opening), but the series premiere of Legends of Tomorrow has gotten off to a strong start and points to exciting things to come for this team of heroes and villains. While it would have been nice if The CW had aired this episode tonight as well, at least anticipation is at an all-time high for the second part, with fans eager to see what happens next.
