SPOILER WARNING: Major spoilers from "Leviathan," tonight's episode of "DC's Legends of Tomorrow," follow.
As CBR reported earlier, Hawkgirl (Ciara Renee_ and the seemingly dead Hawkman (Falk Hentschel would be reunited before the end of the first season of "DC's Legends of Tomorrow," and not just in a flashback either.
But much to fans' delight (or dismay, depending on their feelings about Hawkman), the reconnection has come much sooner than the penultimate episode, as advertised. At the end of "Leviathan," right as Hawkgirl's finally about to end Vandal Savage's life, she discovers that Hawkman has returned as a brainwashed soldier in the villain's army. Killing Savage would also mean killing her only chance of restoring Carter to his previous state. So instead, she imprisons him on the Waverider.
It's still not clear exactly how Hawkman has come back, or if this is even the same version of Carter that was previously eliminated from the timeline. However, we're sure to find out in the coming weeks. Check out our full recap for our own thoughts on the reunion, as well as Savage's daughter Cassandra and Atom going toe to metal toe with the gargantuan robot of the title.
