The CW Television Network has released an official synopsis for the upcoming "Moonshot" episode of DC's Legends of Tomorrow, which is the fourteenth episode of the season and will air Tuesday, March 14.
In Tuesday's "Camelot/3000" episode, Stargirl revealed to the Legends that the finale Justice Society of America mission involved three members of the JSA (including her) and Rip Hunter separating the Spear of Destiny into four separate parts and hiding them throughout history. Stargirl traveled to Britannia in the year 507 A.D. and hid the piece with the legendary sword Excalibur. Doctor Mid-Nite traveled to future-Detroit in the year 3000 and hid the piece inside of himself. And now, based on this new synopsis, we know Nate's grandfather Commander Steel took his fragment to the 1970s.
HOUSTON, WE HAVE A PROBLEM — When the Legends track Commander Steel (guest star Matthew MacCaull) to NASA Headquarters in 1970, they learn where Nate's (Nick Zano) grandfather hid the last fragment of the Spear of Destiny. The team notices a time aberration during the Apollo 13 mission and believes that the Legion of Doom might be involved. As the Legends journey into space to intercept Apollo 13, the Waverider suffers massive internal damage and Ray's (Brandon Routh) life is left in jeopardy when he is stranded on the moon.
Meanwhile, tension grows between Rip (Arthur Darvill) and Sara (Caity Lotz) as to who is the leader of the team. Victor Garber, Franz Drameh, Maisie Richarson-Sellers and Dominic Purcell also star.
Kevin Mock directed the episode written by Grainne Godfree.
