When their search for Vandal Savage leads them to a point in history where the only clue is help by the United States military, Rip Hunter and his “Legends of Tomorrow” hatch a plan to break into the Pentagon to steal the classified file. The following clip from the episode, titled “White Knights,” shows exactly how a team of superheroes and villains accomplishes the ambitious task.
The second clip features the heroes studying the fruits of their espionage labors, and Ray Palmer identifies scientist Valentina Volstok as the “lynchpin” of Savage’s Cold War plans. Hunter does his best Q impersonation, and provides the team with digestible translators, devices which allow people to speak and understand Russian once they’ve been swallowed.
Finally, the Legends are immortalized on a new poster, featuring the stars of the sow posed for a Russian propaganda-style image.
According to the official episode description, “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 Renee).”
