'Legends of Tomorrow' Starts Production on "Amazing Grace"

Fans of Legends of Tomorrow may have to wait until late February for the show to return, but for The CW series' stars it's time to get back to work.

Both Dominic Purcelland Nick Zano, who play Mick Rory/Heat Wave and Nate Heywood/Steel respectively, both shared photos to Instagram indicating that the cast was back to work filming for the series.

While Purcell's post simply showed his character with a decidedly classic Mick Rory facial expression making it difficult to get any idea for what might be going on, Zano on the other hand shared a photo that gave fans a bit of a tease for the fourteenth episode of the show's third season -- its title. Zano shared a photo of his script for the episode which is entitled "Amazing Grace".

Back at it.... #LegendsOfTomorrow

While the episode happens to share its title to with a well-known hymn. Legends of Tomorrow episode titles aren't exactly known for being literal. Some fans speculated that, instead of having a more spiritual theme, the episode's title might be a reference to a historical figure. That was the case with "Helen Hunt," this season's sixth episode. That episode featured the Legends attempt to get an anachronistic Helen of Troy out of 1937 Hollywood and back to her own time rather than the actress Helen Hunt.

As for what figure "Amazing Grace" might refer to, that's anyone's guess, though Legends star Caity Lotz (Sara Lance/White Canary) posted a photo on her own Twitter account showing her hair done in a curled style with the caption "My 1950s house wife or running for office Hair." It was enough for fans to speculate that the "Grace" in the episode title might refer to Grace Hopper, United States Navy rear admiral and pioneer of computer programming whose work led to the development of COBOL, an early high-level computer programming language that is still in use today. Hopper was referred to as "Amazing Grace" because of her accomplishments.

Whatever the episode's title is referring to, fans will have to wait a bit to see it. As mentioned previously, Legends won't be returning until February. A schedule change on The CW is moving the show to Monday nights in Supergirl's time slot with the series picking back up on February 26 with its tenth episode, "Daddy Darhkest."
