It’s back to the ’60s for a tussle with the Legion Of Doom when DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow returns with episode 2.09 “Raiders Of The Lost Art”. This is the episode that apparently features a young George Lucas (there’s a whole filmmaking vibe to plot, as you might have guessed from the midseason finale cliffhanger) but he can’t be spotted in any of these new photos that have been released by the CW. There is a great shot of Professor Stein trying to find Rory’s brain.
The official synopsis reveals, “When Damien Darhk (guest star Neal McDonough) and Malcolm Merlyn (guest star John Barrowman) try to capture Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) in 1967, they create an aberration big enough to draw the attention of the Legends. However, when the team arrives they discover that Rip has no memories of his past due to ‘time drift’ and is just a graduate film student. After trying to convince Rip of who he was, they discover that he possesses an incredibly powerful artifact known as the Spear Of Destiny, which the Legion Of Doom is after. Ray (Bradon Routh) and Nate (Nick Zano) realise that the aberration has also affected them personally making it difficult to help the team. Meanwhile, Rory (Dominic Purcell) asks Stein (Victor Garber) for help and makes him promise to keep it a secret from the team.”
The episode airs in the UK on Sky One on 2 February.
