The Legends of Tomorrow Are on a Mission to Save a Founding Father

Rip Hunter dons a redcoat's uniform.

The latest episode of "DC's Legends of Tomorrow" saw the Legion of Doom interrogat Rip Hunter for any information on the Spear of Destiny, a mysterious mystical artifact the evil group is hell bent on obtaining. What they found instead was a file containing all of Rip's forgotten memories. While the episode didn't explain why Rip would hide all of his memories in a bank vault, it was made perfectly clear that the Legion hadsevery intention of changing those memories to suit their own nefarious purposes.

The final moments of the episode showed a reprogrammed Rip Hunter walking into a camp of early American revolutionaries and killing George Washington. Which explains why, in the new promo for "Turncoat," the Legends travel back to 1776. Can they save Washington and keep the timeline intact? And perhaps more importantly, can they rescue Rip and reprogram him to be his old self again?

A GOOD FIGHT — When The Legends find a new Time Aberration they learn they must travel to the winter of 1776 to protect George Washington and the American Revolutionary War.
