The CW has released the official synopsis for "Out of Time," the season two premiere of DC's Legends of Tomorrow.
The episode, which guest-stars Stephen Amell, will launch a week after the return of The Flash and Arrow. Was that just about shooting schedules, or might there be an in-story reason, considering that both The Flash and DC's Legends of Tomorrow will deal with Matthew Letscher's Reverse-Flash this season? It's hard to say. Letscher isn't mentioned at all in the synopsis for this episode, in which the main villain seems to be Arrow season four big bad Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough).
Nick Zano -- Nate "Citizen Steel" Heywood -- is also mentioned in the synopsis, but not any of the other members of the Justice Society of America who have been cast in the season, so it's hard to guess whether that means they aren't showing up quite yet, or just that Zano's character is the one who plays the biggest role.
You can check the synopsis out below.
LOST AND FOUND — GUEST STARRING STEPHEN AMELL — 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). Victor Garber, Arthur Darvill, Dominic Purcell and Franz Drameh also star.
Dermot Downs directed the episode written by Marc Guggenheim & Phil Klemmer and Greg Berlanti & Chris Fedak
DC's Legends of Tomorrow airs Thursday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT. The second season kicks off on October 13 on The CW.
