Legends of Tomorrow Premiere Synopsis Pits Team Against ... Caesar?

The CW's resident team of “misfits and outcasts” has had its fair share of strange encounters with historical figures, from J.R.R. Tolkein to George Lucas to Albert Einstein. However, when DC's Legends of Tomorrow returns for Season 3, the heroes will meet perhaps their most bizarre match yet: Julius Caesar.

According to the synopsis for the Season 3 premiere, titled "Aruba-Con," the Legends will be forced to deal with the ramifications of breaking the timeline in the second season. That seems to include preventing the Roman dictator from conquering the modern world.

THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME — When the Legends realize that they broke the timeline, Rip Hunter (guest star Arthur Darvill) arrives with his new organization – the Time Bureau – to relieve them of duty. The Legends are thrilled to get a chance to put the team back together but a new threat arises when Rory (Dominic Purcell) spots Julius Caesar (guest star Simon Merrells) in Aruba. Sara (Caity Lotz), Nate (Nick Zano) and Ray (Brandon Routh) devise a plan to steal the Waverider back from the Time Bureau in order to try and stop Julius Caesar from conquering the modern world. Victor Garber, Maisie Richardson-Sellers and Franz Drameh also star. Rob Seidenglanz directed the episode written by Phil Klemmer & Marc Guggenheim (#301). Original airdate 10/10/2017.
