Stephen Amell, Victor Garber, Brandon Routh, Arthur Darvill, Caity Lotz, Franz Drameh, Matt Letscher, Amy Pemberton, Nick Zano, Dominic Purcell, Neal McDonough, Matthew MacCaull
After the defeat of the immortal villain Vandal Savage and the exposure of the corrupt Time Masters, a new threat emerges. Dr. Nate Heywood, an unconventional and charming historian, is thrust into the action. After making a shocking discovery, Nate seeks out Oliver Queen for help in finding the scattered Legends. Once reunited, the Legends continue their new mission to protect the timeline from temporal aberrations - unusual changes to history that spawn potentially catastrophic consequences. Their first stop is 1942, to protect Albert Einstein from being kidnapped before the Nazis destroy New York City with a nuclear bomb. Meanwhile, Ray notices that Sara has a mission of her own, which leads them both to face her nemesis, Damien Darhk.
My first thought when watching the first few minutes of the season premiere of Legends of Tomorrow was…….Is there anyone that doesn’t know Oliver Queens secret identity? It really has to be the worse kept secret ever.
So the first episode came with a few changes, when both Dr. Haywood and Oliver found the waverider at the bottom of the ocean, they only found Rory somehow suspended in time. after coming out of his extended hibernation, he begins to tell the story of the events that took place. This is when we learn that Rip Hunter has disappeared and the rest of the team was scattered across time.
So most of the episode was rehashing the events which took place prior to the waverider colliding with a nuclear bomb. We also got our first glimpses of our villains for the upcoming season. One being Damian Darhk and the other being the Reverse-Flash. This is an interesting development and as excited as I am to see the Reverse-Flash back, I am somewhat disappointed it won’t be part of The Flash. But that is a just a small disappointment, what is intriguing is how they will use Rip Hunter and the Justice Society of America.
As for the legends and their time jumping, it seems like they have messed with history by interfering and causing changes. Its really interesting since we now have two shows with in the DC shared universe which are causing changes to the timeline. This ultimately should have some effect in the future.
The CW was four for four and did not disappoint with any of their DC properties, each show had solid episodes but Legends of Tomorrow felt like what the show is meant to be….FUN! So make sure to watch and Let us know your thought of the season premier and leave your comments below.
