The CW has released a new preview for "Witch Hunt", the second episode of Legends of Tomorrow's fourth season.
The preview show the Legends traveling to the era of the Salem Witch Trials, something that is further complicated by the arrival of a fairy godmother (played by Jane Carr). The Godmother is just the latest "magical fugitive" that the show will be introducing this season, after the team dealt with a particularly deadly unicorn in this week's season premiere.
“It's a combo [of original and established creatures]." co-showrunner Keto Shimizu explained to ComicBook.com. "There will be some that will be very, vary familiar, but of course with a Legends spin, so not quite the creature you’re familiar with but our version of that creature. And then we will do some deep dives into some more obscure creatures, and of course in order to battle this new type of threat, which none of us are magical ourselves, none of us know how to battle these things, we enlist the help of a certain warlock to come join us and help us in that crusade.”
A few of the photos from the episode also appear to show Nate Haywood (Nick Zano) getting acclimated to working with the Time Bureau.
"Nate is going to reconnect with his father [and] as such, Nate will spend a lot more time in 2018 -- which will give him a chance to see the inner workings of the Time Bureau," showrunner Phil Klemmer teased earlier this year. "Last season, Ava Sharpe and the Bureau served as foils to our Legends but this season they will be our allies."
And as the recent Season 4 trailer showed, the magical mayhem appears to lead to Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) somehow being turned into a pig. How exactly the Legends will get out of that, and whether or not the show plays homage to Justice League Unlimited in the process, remains to be seen.

NOT YOUR TYPICAL FAIRY GODMOTHER
When the magical Time Seismograph goes off, the team finds themselves headed to the Salem witch trials. Sara (Caity Lotz) notices that Zari (Tala Ashe) is taking this case personally when she promises to save a mom, who is being accused of being a witch. However, the team quickly learns that there is a magical creature in the town creating problems they hadn’t been expecting.
Meanwhile, Nate (Nick Zano) and Ava (Jes Macallan) work together to try to keep their Time Bureau funding by proving to them that magic exists.0comments
