“Legends of Tomorrow”
Season Finale Monday, April 9 at 9 PM ET/PT on The CW
In the season finale, “The Good, the Bad and the Cuddly,” the Legends plan to vanquish Mallus but using the totems doesn't go as planned, forcing Rip (guest star Arthur Darvill) to improvise. The team finds itself regrouping in the Wild West where they run into their old pal Jonah Hex (guest star Johnathon Schaech). Sara (Caity Lotz) leaves Ray (Brandon Routh) in charge of watching Damien Darhk (Neal McDonaugh), while she comes up with a new plan. Meanwhile, Amaya (Maisie Richarson-Sellers) is determined to find a way to use the totems to destroy Mallus. Dominic Purcell, Tala Ashe, Keiynan Lonsdale, Nick Zano and Franz Drameh also star.
After the defeat of Eobard Thawne and his equally nefarious Legion of Doom, the Legends have faced a new existential threat created by their actions at the end of last season. In revisiting a moment in time that they had already participated in, they essentially fractured the timeline and created anachronisms – a scattering of people, animals, and objects all across time! The team needed to find a way to return all the anachronisms to their original timelines before the time stream falls apart. But before our Legends could jump back into action, Rip Hunter and his newly established Time Bureau call their methods into question.
With the Time Bureau effectively the new sheriffs in town, the Legends disbanded – until Mick Rory discovers one of them in the middle of his well-deserved vacation in Aruba. Seeing this as an opportunity to continue their time-travelling heroics, Sara wasted no time in getting the Legends back together. She reunited with billionaire inventor Ray Palmer, the unconventional historian-turned-superhero Nate Heywood, former member of the JSA Amaya Jiwe, and Professor Martin Stein and Jefferson “Jax” Jackson, who together form the meta-human Firestorm.
Once reunited, the Legends challenged the Time Bureau’s authority, and, in true Legends style, eventually ran afoul of the Bureau when they recruited a hacker from the future, Zari Tomaz. Against the wishes of the bureau, they welcomed Zari to the team and continued their time travelling shenanigans, while insisting that however messy their methods may be, some problems are beyond the Bureau’s capabilities. Some problems can only be fixed by Legends.
