Legends Of Tomorrow season 2 premieres this Thursday (12 October) at 8pm EST on The CW Network. Episode 1 is titled, Out Of Time, where the Legends continue their new mission to protect the timeline from temporal aberrations and team up with Justice Society of America.
The official synopsis for the chapter reads as follows:
After the defeat of the immortal villain Vandal Savage and the exposure of the corrupt Time Masters, a new threat emerges. Dr Nate Heywood (Nick Zano), an unconventional and charming historian, is thrust into the action. After making a shocking discovery, Nate seeks out Oliver Queen (guest star Stephen Amell) for help in finding the scattered Legends. Once reunited, the Legends continue their new mission to protect the timeline from temporal aberrations — unusual changes to history that spawn potentially catastrophic consequences. Their first stop is 1942 to protect Albert Einstein from being kidnapped before the Nazis destroy New York City with a nuclear bomb. Meanwhile, Ray (Brandon Routh) notices that Sara (Caity Lotz) has a mission of her own, which leads them both to face her nemesis, Damien Darhk (guest star Neal McDonough).
Executive producer Marc Guggenheim spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the premiere episode of season 2. He said, "We pick up six months later, and the Legends are acting like time cops. They're going around history, fixing aberrations, dealing with time pirates, all sorts of fun things. One of the things we found last year that we want to do more of is go to fun time periods like 1958, like the Old West, and have our team both get into trouble, because that's what they do, but also fix some things in history, and that's what they've been doing for six months.
"Something happens in the premiere that changes the game for them, and we're going to end up with a shift in leadership away from Rip into the hands of someone new. It'll be very organic, you will understand why it's happening, but I don't want to spoil it too much."
