In the newest episode of Legends of Tomorrow, the crew is tasked with heading to the 1980's, but it's not a social visit.
Their trip is intended to stop the time traveling villain that took the life of Hourman, but Eobard Thawne has other ideas, and the first order of business is to enlist some new recruits, including a past version of Arrow villain Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough). In a new featurette for the "Compromised" episode, executive producer Marc Guggenheim explained just what fans are witnessing.
"In this episode, we really see the formation of, or the beginning of the formation of our Legion of Doom, our group of bad guys for the season."
This meeting will have large ramifications for the rest of the season, and while many had assumed Darhk was the de facto leader, it might just be Thawne that unites the team .He also enjoyed just getting to see the cast in 1980's fashion styles.
"The Legends travel to 1987 Washington, DC. Just seeing the Legends of Tomorrow in Ronald Regan's White House is a hoot in and of itself. It's also just a heck of a lot of fun to see our cast members wear 1980's clothing and particularly see the women in the 1980's hairstyles and makeup. The 1980's were a very interesting time fashion-wise."
You can watch the featurette above. The synopsis can be located below.
When the Legends trace a timequake to President Reagan's White House, they are shocked to discover their old enemy Damien Darhk (guest star Neal McDonough) is now a Senior Adviser to Reagan. As the team works to uncover what Darhk has up his devious sleeve, Sara (Caity Lotz) struggles with the choice of getting revenge or helping with the team's larger mission.
Thinking that the JSA members could be of help, Amaya (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) and Nate (Nick Zano) break into the JSA and are surprised at what they find. Meanwhile, Stein (Victor Garber) tries to prevent his younger self from creating an even bigger time Abberation.
