The CW has released the official synopsis for "Back to the Finale Part II," the June 20 episode of DC's Legends of Tomorrow. In the episode, the team travels back into the season five finale, in the hopes of preventing Sara from ever being abducted by aliens, thus mooting the entire season to this point and creating chaos in the timeline. You know what they say, though -- sometimes you have to screw things up for the better. The episode also sees a pretty surprising moment for Sara and Mick, the final remaining OG Legends.
This is one of two synopses released today. The following week, Legends will bring the David Ramsey-directed "Stressed Western."
You can see the synopsis for "Back to the Finale Part II" below.
BACK IN TIME – With Ava (Jes Macallan) a wreck, Behrad (Shayan Sobhian) the Legends make a last-ditch effort to keep Sara (Caity Lotz) from being abducted in the first place, even knowing that it will alter the timeline. Sara grapples with what she has just discovered about herself but is also shocked when Rory (Dominic Purcell) finds her on the mystery planet. With no time to spare, Sara, Mick and Gary (Adam Tsekham) devise a plan to help defeat Bishop (guest star Raffi Barsoumian). Meanwhile, Spooner (Lisseth Chavez) envisions what her life would be like if she hadn’t joined the Legends. Nick Zano, Tala Ashe, Matt Ryan and Olivia Swann also star. Glen Winter directed the episode, written by Morgan Faust & Mark Bruner.
After one of their own is abducted by a ruthless alien, this new mission becomes personal. It will take more than the combined powers of a dark magician, John Constantine (Matt Ryan); a semi-reformed arsonist, Mick Rory (Dominic Purcell); historian who transforms into steel, Nate Heywood (Nick Zano); and a brother-sister wind-totem-wielding duo, Zara Tarazi (Tala Ashe) and Behrad Tarazi (Shayan Sobhian) to save the world for a sixth time. They must recruit a new Legend, a woman who was abducted by aliens when she was a child and supposedly imbued with powers that will help the team defeat their intergalactic foes. Either that or she’s just crazy... Based on the characters from DC, DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros.
