Rip Hunter and the team head to 2166 to take on Vandal Savage at the height of his power!
After kidnapping their younger selves and sequestering them from the timeline in this week’s episode of Legends of Tomorrow, the team have no other choice but to confront Vandal Savage in 2166, just three months before he tragically murders Rip’s wife and son in next week’s episode, “Leviathan.”
If you’ve seen last night’s adventure, “Last Refuge,” you likely saw the short promo for “Leviathan” at the end of the episode. Now, The CW has released an extended version full of new footage. We see Savage with a massive army of followers, a few scenes with his (unnamed) daughter, a giant robot tossing the Waverider like a chunk of garbage, and it even looks like Hawkgirl will finally get her famous mace.
Here’s the synopsis for “Leviathan,” written by Sarah Nicole Jones & Ray Utarnachitt and directed by Gregory Smith:
LONDON 2166 – Rip (Arthur Darvill) takes the team to London in the year 2166, three months before his family is killed. He believes this to be their final opportunity to take out Savage (Casper Crump) who is, unfortunately, at the height of his power. However, the team discovers two key elements to defeating him – Savage’s daughter (guest star Jessica Sipos) and the means to kill Savage once and for all.
