Tonight brought us the season premiere of “DC’s “Legends of Tomorrow” on The CW, and we’d say that by and large this was a rather great time. There were many great moments featuring all of the characters, great action sequences, and nice little moments featuring most of the cast.
The only downside to the premiere is that there was so much time to explain the concept of the show that it took some time to get us where we are now moving into next week’s new episode. Vandal Savage is going to have much more of a presence on the second episode than the first, and you will also get to see a little bit more of the team in the seventies, as well. Specifically, be prepared to meet a young Martin Stein! You have to imagine that there could be some issues that go along with that.
The synopsis below gives you at least a little bit of a sense as to everything that could be coming up now that we know the true nature of the mission, and that none of these people are legends unless they allow themselves to be with their actions:
“Tipped off to Vandal Savage’s (guest star Casper Crump) whereabouts, the team infiltrates a munitions deal with Professor Stein (Victor Garber) as their leader. Surrounded by some of the toughest criminals in the world, things quickly go from bad to worse when Savage realizes they don’t belong there. A massive fight ensues and a piece of the Atom’s (Brandon Routh) suit falls off and into the wrong hands, which could potentially cause disastrous consequences in the future. Stein realizes the best way to retrieve the missing piece is to contact a brilliant man – his younger self. He, Sara (Caity Lotz) and Jax (Franz Drameh) head off in search of young Martin Stein (guest star Graeme McComb), much to Rip’s (Arthur Darvill) consternation. Meanwhile, Snart (Wentworth Miller) and Rory (Dominic Purcell) plan to steal a key element in defeating Savage but still unsure of his new teammates, Ray (Brandon Routh) demands to come along on the mission. Carter (guest star Falk Hentschel) helps Kendra (Ciara Renée) remember something vital.”
