Synopses For Legends Of Tomorrow And Arrow Season Premieres Arrive


With the next “super season” set to commence in just under three weeks, it’s only understandable that The CW pulls out all the stops in order to assure that viewers come back for another helping. And usually when we’re that close to any specific episode airing, synopses are bound to surface online, effectively bringing some minor spoilers along with them. In this case, that rule applies to fan favorites Legends Of Tomorrow and Arrow.

First, let’s talk about Legends of Tomorrow because it’ll be the first of these two shows to air. In “Aruba-Con,” we’ll see the Waverider crew bereft of the ship they call home and, apparently, carrying on with life in this broken timeline. Seriously, with dinosaurs running amok in the streets and Julius Caesar being a beach bully, I’m not sure if I’d be able to even sleep, so how do they manage?

But what’s really caught our attention is learning what’s going on with Rip Hunter. Earlier this week, we got the impression that he has an agenda of his own in season 3, which has now been confirmed with his formation of the Time Bureau. But whether this new cabal proves to be ally or adversary remains to be seen.

Anyway, here’s the synopsis for said episode:

THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME — When the Legends realize that they broke the timeline, Rip Hunter (guest star Arthur Darvill) arrives with his new organization – the Time Bureau – to relieve them of duty. The Legends are thrilled to get a chance to put the team back together but a new threat arises when Rory (Dominic Purcell) spots Julius Caesar (guest star Simon Merrells) in Aruba. Sara (Caity Lotz), Nate (Nick Zano) and Ray (Brandon Routh) devise a plan to steal the Waverider back from the Time Bureau in order to try and stop Julius Caesar from conquering the modern world. Victor Garber, Maisie Richardson-Sellers and Franz Drameh also star. Rob Seidenglanz directed the episode written by Phil Klemmer & Marc Guggenheim (#301).

When it comes to Arrow, however, the network is understandably holding its cards very close to its vest. Obviously, they don’t want to spoil who survived the blast on Lian Yu, but at least we recently learned that a rematch between Black Canary and Black Siren is a sure thing, so there’s that to look forward to.

Here’s the skinny on “Fallout”:

THE AFTERMATH — Oliver (Stephen Amell) deals with the fallout of the explosion on the island. James Bamford directed the episode written by Marc Guggenheim & Wendy Mericle (#601).

Legends of Tomorrow returns for its third season on Tuesday, October 10 on The CW, with Arrow returning for its sixth on Thursday, October 12.
