‘Legends of Tomorrow’ episode 10 preview: ‘Progeny’ brings forth huge ethical dilemma

Cast -Now that we’ve made it out of the 1950’s on “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” our intrepid heroes are putting their focus instead on a very different era in order to determine how to stop Vandal Savage for good: The future. They are out to prevent a massacre by destroying someone who could someday become a valuable asset to him.

With this show, though, you do have to remember that there is almost always a twist. This time around, it is that the asset that the team has to destroy is none other than a teenager, someone who still theoretically could be molded into going down a different path. Is there a way to stop the future without killing a child? We know that this particular subject will be explored throughout next week’s new episode entitled “Progeny,” as is set up by both the promo and the official synopsis below courtesy of the network:

“Rip (Arthur Darvill) tells the team they are headed to the future to take out a powerful ally that Savage (guest star Casper Crump) needs in order to conquer the world. However, when Rip reveals the ally is a 14 year-old boy (guest star Cory Gruter-Andrew) who will one day grow into an evil dictator, the team is split about the morality of killing a child, even if it does save the world. Meanwhile, Sara (Caity Lotz) talks Snart (Wentworth Miller) through a rough patch and Ray (Brandon Routh) learns something that could impact his future with Kendra (Ciara Renée).”

Are we going to be in for some surprises? We have to assume so, just as we also have to assume that there is a chance the Legends find another way out of this problem that does not involve this sort of violence. If this show has taught us anything, it is that even in science, there are such things as gray areas.
