Legends of Tomorrow's Latest Threat Is a Major Betrayal

SPOILER WARNING: This article contains major spoilers for "Tagumo Attacks!!!," the latest episode of DC's Legends of Tomorrow.

Hank Heywood has plans for the Time Bureau. In "Tagumo Attacks!!!," the latest episode of DC's Legends of Tomorrow, he revealed he has other, nefarious intentions for the magical fugitives.

As Hank enjoyed Thanksgiving, his son Nate found his hands full with an emergency at the Bureau. Three magical creatures had escaped their prisons and were wreaking havoc at the main office. With a little help from Mona, the food delivery woman who had caught Gary's eye, they got the creatures under control just in time. When Hank got wise to the reason behind Nate's absence, he showed up at the Bureau, only to discover Mona had placated the creatures. Observing the scene, Hank congratulated Nate on finding such an efficient creature handler.

When they returned home for Thanksgiving, Hank stepped away to take a call. He made sure no one was listening when he told the person on the other end that the magical creatures could be controlled and Project Hades is a go. This suggests he hopes to weaponize the creatures in some way; he intends to turn them into soldiers. Either way, his plans will likely come as a betrayal to Nate, who believes he has finally found some common ground with his estranged father.
