Last season The Legends were left to take the place of the Time Masters that were destroyed. The season premiere of Legends started in Star City 2016 and uses flashbacks to tell the story of what happened to the Legends.
Star City 2016:
Dr. Nate Heywood comes to Oliver Queen to tell him that the Legends are in trouble. Heywood is a time detective/historian who found the Legend’s timeship in the bottom of the ocean. Queen and Heywood enter the ship and see that it is still keeping Mick in stasis. They wake Mick up and he begins to tell the story of what happened to the rest of the team.
The team is trying to save the King of France. Well most of the team. Sarah is busy fornicating with the Queen while the men are battling. They end up saving the King and restore a small portion of history.
Once the team heads back to the ship they experience a time quake; an unusually large aberration in NYC 1942. NYC was nuked by Nazi’s in 1942. The exact place Rex Tyler told them not to return to as this would be the year the team is killed. The team then discovers that WWII last two more years and Einstein goes missing. Putting two and two together the team realizes Einstein was kidnapped to create the atomic bomb.
The team kidnaps Einstein only to discover his ex-wife was the one who helped the Nazi’s create the atomic bomb. Mick’s love for “roasting Nazi’s” and Sarah’s quest to kill Damien Dhark costs the team greatly. They are unable to get the bomb and it makes its way onto a submarine.
Rip Hunter decides to take matters into his own hands. He has been secretly teaching Jefferson about the timeship and uses the time scatter he created to send the team into different parts of history. All except Mick of course who was too injured to travel. Mick is placed in stasis as Rip and the timeship make a collision course for the torpedo with the bomb and stop NYC from being nuked. Rip presumably goes down with his ship.
Star City 2016:
Mick and Heywood team up to find the other Legends.
South Dakota 70 Million Years Ago:
Ray is a caveman being chased by a T-Rex.
Jefferson and Martin are Jesters that are about to have their heads taken off.
Sarah is corrupting women as usual and is deemed a witch to be burned at the stake.
After the team is reassembled they hear Rip’s final message. “History is yours now, my dear Legends.” The team is still unable to locate him.
We then head to 1942 Columbia where Einstein acknowledges his ex-wife’s contributions and in turn restores history. We also learn that Damien Dhark and Eobard Thawne (Reverse Flash) are working together. The Legends are then confronted by the Justice Society of America (JSA).
The JSA is made up of Commander Steel, Dr. Mid-Nite, Hourman (Rex Tyler), Vixen, Stargirl and Obsidian.
JSA Headquarters 1942:
The Legends are held in a cell at the JSA headquarters while Thawne is out there giving a serum to Hitler that creates super soldiers. After pleading their case the Legends are let go and oddly enough Martin is appointed interim captain of the ship.
Both the JSA and Legends team up (well The Legends intrude on the JSA’s undercover operation…. same thing) to go after Krieger aka Captain Nazi to save the JSA members from dying. Martin sings for his life and Ray causes a fight after he won’t salute Hitler. Stargirl shuts down the fight with one blast from her staff.
The teams head back to the ship and that is where Sarah discovers Heywood is a hemophiliac; his blood doesn’t clot and he could die from a minor injury.
Fountainbleu Forest 1942:
Captain Nazi injects himself with the serum and becomes a hulk-like figure. The teams are forced to pull back and leave behind Vixen and Ray. However, Rex does recover the amulet.
Captain Nazi and tow capture The Atom (Ray) and Vixen. Rex is willing to sacrifice the two to end the war a day earlier, however Sarah (now the new captain of the ship) won’t allow that to happen.
Back in the bunker where Ray and Vixen are being kept Ray discovers the serum and tweaks it in order to give him superpowers. Unfortunately before he is able to inject himself he is stopped by the JSA and Legends rescue.
Outside the camp Commander Steel and Dr. Mid-Nite are being attacked by Captain Nazi. Heywood to the rescue! Nate rescues his grandfather via motorcycle and watches Captain Nazi be decimated by an airstrike. However, the celebration doesn’t last long as the grandson-grandfather team are also hit by the airstrike. Nate suffers severe internal bleeding and is basically dying until Ray sacrifices his chance at superpowers and gives the serum to Nate, saving his life. They return to NYC 1942.
Commander Steel’s dog tags return around Nate’s neck signifying the timeline has been restored.
JSA Headquarters 1942:
Rex meets Thawne face to face and learns that Thawne erased him from the timeline. Thawne then kills Rex and steals the amulet.
The team heads to Japan and faces off with Shogun.
Nate Heywood becomes Citizen Steel.
