The CW has released a new synopsis for the Legends Of Tomorrow season two premiere episode, “Lost And Found”. Producers Phil Klemmer and Marc Guggenheim have previously suggested that the new season will not be picking up exactly were season one left off, with a cliffhanger involving Hourman (Patrick J Adams) appearing with a message for the Legends. This synopsis would seem to back that up. “I think you’ll be surprised at the way we resolve or don’t resolve initially the cliffhanger from last year,” they said.
Thew first surprise is a guest appearance by Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen. The second is that Nate Heywood, aka Citizen Steel, seems to be the man driving the story forward. Also, it’s been leaked that Reverse-Flash is in the episode too, but he’s not mentioned in the synopsis – is this because his involvement has something to do with the fallout from “Flashpoint” (season three of The Flash premieres a week earlier) and so letting us know what he’s up to in Legends might be a spoiler?
Anyway, here’s that synopsis:
After the defeat of the immortal villain Vandal Savage and the exposure of the corrupt Time Masters, a new threat emerges.
Dr Nate Heywood (Nick Zano), an unconventional and charming historian, is thrust into the action. After making a shocking discovery, Nate seeks out Oliver Queen (guest star Stephen Amell) for help in finding the scattered Legends. Once reunited, the Legends continue their new mission to protect the timeline from temporal aberrations – unusual changes to history that spawn potentially catastrophic consequences.
Their first stop is 1942, to protect Albert Einstein from being kidnapped before the Nazis destroy New York City with a nuclear bomb. Meanwhile, Ray (Brandon Routh) notices that Sara (Caity Lotz) has a mission of her own, which leads them both to face her nemesis, Damien Darhk (guest star Neal McDonough). Victor Garber, Arthur Darvill, Dominic Purcell and Franz Drameh also star.
“Lost And Found” is directed by Dermot Downs and written by Marc Guggenheim, Phil Klemmer, Greg Berlanti and Chris Fedak
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is set to air in the UK on Sky1, start date TBC.
