The Waverider crew is positively hurtling through the second season of "DC's Legends of Tomorrow," with The CW now releasing the synopsis for show's sixth episode, taking us to the very brink of the "Invasion" crossover, which will also pull in Supergirl, The Flash and Arrow to confront an alien threat.
But before that happens, our intrepid band of time travelers must first must head to the Old West to visit "Outlaw Country" — and old friend Jonah Hex (returning guest star Johnathon Schaech):
DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW“Outlaw Country” — (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) (Content Rating TBD) (HDTV)STRENGTH AND WEAKNESS— The Legends are still reeling from the news that their time-travel nemesis is a speedster when they are alerted to an Aberration in the Old West. When the Legends arrive they find their old friend Jonah Hex (guest star Johnathon Schaech) in trouble with his arch-nemesis, Quentin Turnbull (guest star Jeff Fahey). The team soon discovers that they need to stop Turnbull and his gang from conquering the West and branding it his own lawless territory. To Hex’s surprise, Sara (Caity Lotz) is in charge and dispatches the team. Rory (Dominic Purcell) is ecstatic to be in the Wild West, but Sara makes Amaya (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) work with him to keep him on task, which is easier said than done. Meanwhile, Nate (Nick Zano), Ray (Brandon Routh) and Jax (Franz Drameh) try to infiltrate Turnball’s gang, but find themselves in a shootout leaving Nate’s confidence shaken. Victor Garber also stars. Cherie Nowlan directed the episode, written by Matthew Maala & Chris Fedak (#206). Original airdate 11/17/2016.
Schaech debuted as the DC Comics bounty hunter in the Season One episode "The Magnificent Eight," when Rip Hunter’s team traveled back to 1800s Dakota Territory to escape the mercenary Hunters chasing them. There, they encountered Hex, who indicated he’d encountered time travelers before. Although fans had a pretty good idea since May that the character would return, Schaech finally confirmed his Season Two appearance last month.
