After bringing the team together and leading them on a mission against Vandal Savage in season one of the CW’s “Legends of Tomorrow,” the team has had to learn how to get along without their de facto leader Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) in season two. The character disappeared in the final moments of the season two premiere, leaving the ragtag team to fend for themselves and learn how to effectively serve as the protectors of time.
When “Legends of Tomorrow” returns to the CW, Rip Hunter will also return to the show — albeit in a totally new fashion. The synopsis for the next episode, titled “Raiders of the Lost Art,” reveals the circumstances under which the team finds Hunter once again.
“Raiders of the Lost Art” airs Wednesday, Jan. 25, at 9 p.m. ET/PT
LOST MEMORIES — When Damien Darhk (guest star Neal McDonough) and Malcolm Merlyn (guest star John Barrowman) try to capture Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) in 1967, they create an Aberration big enough to draw the attention of the Legends. However, when the team arrives they discover that Rip has no memories of his past due to “time drift” and is just a graduate film student.
After trying to convince Rip of who he was, they discover that he possesses an incredibly powerful artifact known as the Spear of Destiny, which the Legion of Doom is after. Ray (Brandon Routh) and Nate (Nick Zano) realize that the Aberration has also affected them personally making it difficult to help the team. Meanwhile, Rory (Dominic Purcell) asks Stein (Victor Garber) for help and makes him promise to keep it a secret from the team.
While the synopsis leaves this part out, another major character will appear in the episode: George Lucas. Matt Angel will play the young director, who will leave film school as the result of a time aberration. That alteration to the timeline will have an aforementioned effect on Ray and Nate.
“Because of circumstances, the time aberration in episode 209 is George Lucas quits film school,” “Legends” executive producer Marc Guggenheim revealed to Entertainment Weekly. “As a result, he never makes ‘Star Wars’ or ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’. As a result, Ray, who became an engineer because of ‘Star Wars,’ and Nate, who became a historian because of ‘Raiders,’ slowly start to lose their brilliance, because those things that inspired them to become who they are didn’t exist.”
“Legends of Tomorrow” returns on January 25. Airing Wednesdays at 9 pm ET/PT on The CW “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” stars Arthur Darvill as Rip Hunter, Brandon Routh as the Atom, Victor Garber and Franz Drameh as Firestorm, Caity Lotz as White Canary, Maisie Richardson-Seller as Vixen, Dominic Purcell as Heatwave and Nick Zano as Citizen Steel.
