Using a term usually reserved for romantic love, DC's Legends of Tomorrow star Dominic Purcell expressed why it's important to continue tracking the partnership/relationship between his character, Mick Rory/Heat Wave, and that of his Prison Break co-star Wentworth Miller, who plays Leonard Snart/Captain Cold.
During the show's panel at Comic Con two weeks ago, Miller was confirmed to be returning in a recurring role for season 3 of Legends.
"Captain Cold is Heat Wave's soul mate," Purcell told ComicBook.com. "He is his guidance and always has be his guidance, and then obviously we left off last year where we did show how much Mick loves Captain Cold because he sets him up in the past. He doesn't kill him, and that speaks volumes."
Of course, it isn't just Captain Cold but the whole crew of the Waverider that Mick has proven to be much closer to than he would like people to think.
"I think that's the great thing, is that everyone realizes that he's got this dark, dark size to him and he's had a traumatic life," Purcell explained, "but I kind of describe him in terms of, last season he had two feet out and one finger was sort of hanging on. Now he has one foot in and one foot out. The crew are starting to become a surrogate family, and through them, he's starting to believe in himself."
The series returns to Tuesday nights at 9 p.m., following new episodes of The Flash, in October.
We reunite with billionaire inventor Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), the unconventional historian-turned-superhero Nick Heywood (Nick Zano), and Professor Martin Stein (Victor Garber) and Jefferson "Jax" Jackson (Franz Drameh), who together form the meta-human Firestorm. Once reunited, the Legends will challenge the Time Bureau's authority over the timeline and insist that however messy their methods may be, some problems are beyond the Bureau's capabilities. Some problems can only be fixed by Legends.
Supergirl premieres on Monday, October 9th at 8 pm, while The Flash debuts on Tuesday, October 10 at 8 pm. Legends of Tomorrow moves to Tuesdays this Fall, airing right after The Flash on October 10. On Thursday, October 12 at 9 pm Arrow will premiere to round out the DC roster.
