Last week’s episode of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow followed Rip Hunter on his downward turncoat spiral.
New Jersey Christmas Day 1776
Rip has his accent and hair back and is now commanding the British army. The former Captain gives his new comrades modern weapons to defeat the Americans. He then takes it upon himself to kill General Washington in order to attract The Legends attention. Rip wants to lure them to him so he can kill The Legends and take the fragment of the spear of destiny and give it to Eobart Thawne.
Timeship Inside The Vortex
Ray sets up a chore chart to keep the ship clean. Sarah and the team learn about the death of General Washington. She knows its “a trap” and tells them to be careful and play it safe when they are in the field.
Pennsylvania Christmas Eve 1776
The team arrives at a Christmas Eve party at Washington’s estate. Mick sets the place ablaze and Sarah takes Washington out of there by gun point when they are ambushed by British soldiers. Rip uses some sonic device to find the timeship and turn off the power and coincidently kill Ray’s suit. As Sarah, Mick and Washington try to escape they are surrounded by Rip and a few of his men. Rip shoots Sarah and then takes Mick and Washington hostage.
Jax carries Sarah back to the timeship to the med-bay. Firestorm attempts to merge to get the ship’s power back on but they can’t. Rip’s sonic device fried their merging device. Sarah then puts Jax in charge while she is out of commission. He sends Amaya and Nate to save Mick, Washington and the turncoat Rip while he and Ray work on getting the timeship back up.
While on their rescue mission Nate tries to explain Tinder and modern relationships to Amaya. They are then ambushed by a few soldiers and Nate falls off a nearby cliff and into the river. Amaya channels her seal powers to save him. Unfortunately he gets hypothermia and he needs skin to skin contact to warm him up. He says this isn’t how her pictured getting her naked. Lmfao! The two finally hook up a little while later.
Over in the British camp Washington gets Mick’s life spared.
Turncoat Rip breaks into the ship and Jax sets up booby traps for him and his gang. He is chasing Jax around the timeship in order to get the fragment. When he finally finds Jax, Rip offers Jax his father’s life in exchange for the spear fragment. Jax says no. The only way he will get it is if Rip pries it from his cold dead hands.
Jax figures out how to turn the auxiliary power back on and Rip tells Jax The Legion of Doom freed him. Jax blows up another booby trap and escapes Rip. While this is going on Ray is being chased by a rat. Keep in mind he is still in miniature form.
Even though Jax escaped Rip, Rip still managed to find Martin and Sarah. Once again Rip kills Sarah by breaking her neck even after Jax told him where to find the fragment of the spear of destiny. Rip grabs the fragment of the spear from his telescope and exits the ship. Jax follows him, on a mission to murder Rip for what he has done.
Ray saves the day and gets the timeship back online. This brings Gideon back online just in time to save Sarah.
Mick and Washington escape by fighting side by side. They get a little help from Amaya and Nate and they all escape the British army by fleeing.
Sarah is alive and finds Jax with a gun pointed at Rip. She makes Jax let him go and the turncoat gets away with the piece of the spear. Back at Washington’s estate Mick tries to get Washington to update the criminal justice system but is interrupted by Amaya and Nate. Washington and Mick then hug it out and Washington lets Mick know that the letter to his wife Martha was actually a battle plan.
Timeship Inside The Vortex
History has been restored and Mick has a statue of himself in Pennsylvania that he can thank Washington for. At the close of the episode the team has a Christmas party and celebrate their victory.
Ray gives Mick the rat as a Christmas present and Nate gives Amaya a pair of ruby slippers. Amaya lets Nate know that she still thinks teammates shouldn’t fraternize and he agrees even though he definitely wants a relationship with her.
Other tidbits from the episode:
Mick’s voice over for the opening. “Who writes this crap anyway?”
Hitler ruined The Wizard of Oz for Amaya. She had to ship out with the JSA before she could finish the movie.
When The Legends return on February 21st:
The Legends head to medieval England. Camelot!
