It takes a brave sci-fi show to do a western episode when Westworld is on the air. Especially when Westworld has about a 10 times the budget. But buoyed up by the news it’s just been given four extra episodes, the CW’s plucky little Legends Of Tomorrow is doing just that, and calling back a former guest star to add to the mix – Jonah Hex.
Here’s the official synopsis: “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 Jonathan 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 is in charge and dispatches the team. Rory is ecstatic to be in the Wild West, but Sara makes Amaya work with him to keep him on task, which is easier said than done. Meanwhile, Nate, Ray and Jax try to infiltrate Turnball’s gang, but find themselves in a shootout leaving Nate’s confidence shaken.”
