Legends of Tomorrow season 4 episode 10 preview: The Nixon chronicles

Legends of Tomorrow season 4 premiereThere are some things that Legends of Tomorrow can pull off that virtually no one else can — take, for example, going on a road trip with President Nixon in 1973. To make matters worse, they’re forced to embark on said road trip in a pretty terrible RV. If there is absolutely one thing that will test any human being alive, it’s traveling thousands of miles with other people in a confined space. It was probably even worse back in the 1970’s — you know, a time you actually had to speak with people rather than just stuff on your iPad.

This episode is going to be fantastic, but you could probably say that about almost any episode of this show. What matters perhaps more in the long-term is figuring out what Hank really wants — he’s one of the closest things to a Big Bad we’ve got, though he’s also Nate’s father and not a terrible person in a lot of ways. We almost think of him as a giant fan, oscillating from one direction to the next to the point where you don’t quite know where it is going to land. (We’ll be the first to admit that when he was first cast on the show, we just assumed that it’d be a one or two-episode guest arc. We didn’t think that he’d be THIS huge a part in the overall story.

For a little bit more news on what’s ahead, we suggest that you check out the official Legends of Tomorrow season 4 episode 10 synopsis:

WHO IS TELLING THE TRUTH? — When Hank (guest star Tom Wilson) commandeers the Waverider in 1973, the Legends find themselves on the run in an RV after kidnapping the President who is only able to tell the truth. With the help of Constantine (Matt Ryan), they discover the reason that none of them can lie making for an uncomfortable family road trip. Meanwhile, Nate (Nick Zano) and Zari (Tala Ashe), with the help of Nora (Courtney Ford) and Gary (guest star Adam Tsekhman), work together to find out what Hank is really up to. Caity Lotz, Brandon Routh, Dominic Purcell, Maisie Richardson-Sellers, Jes Macallan and Ramona Young also star. Viet Nguyen directed the episode written by Matthew Maala & Ubah Mohamed wrote the episode (#410).

Beyond this episode, we obviously know that there’s a lot of great stuff coming — including some musical numbers, meta references, and actually tests for Sara Lance and Ava Sharpe. Amidst all of the ridiculousness and humor, there is also still an emotional undercurrent here that cannot be fully ignored. The relationships aboard the Waverider are going to be what continues to define this show, for better or worse (though usually, it’s for the better).

The promo below gives you a few different highlights for what’s coming, but we gotta offer one criticism: Not enough Gary. Seriously, is there ever enough Gary?
