DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season Five Finale Synopsis Released

The CW has released the official synopsis for "Swan Thong," the season five finale of DC's Legends of Tomorrow, which will air on June 2, 2020. The episode will see the Fates ascendant and the world trapped in a 1984-style culture that has eradicated free will (man, Dion's going to be mad -- they did exactly what he expected them to do). The episode will apparently see the Legends standing up against the Fates and trying to raise an army of everday people to help. The Encores who served as Astra's servants in the first portion of the season, though, are resurrected to face the Legends one last time.

Fans have to wonder, then: does this mean we'll get another look at Damien Darhk? Probably not, given that he got such a perfect closure in his last appearance, but anything can happen.

You can check the synopsis out below -- but be aware that it seems to give us some pretty decent spoilers for next week's episode, "The One Where We're Trapped On TV."

"Swan Thong"

Legends began the season by picking up where last year left off: Astra Logue (Olivia Swann) was ruler of Hell, and wielding that power to send some of history's greatest monsters back to Earth to create chaos. The Legends were sending them back, and it went on like that for a while -- until John Constantine made a deal with Astra: he would find a way to bring back her dead mother and give her the happy childhood she never had. That's when the Fates of Greek mythology stepped in -- including Charlie/Clotho -- to reveal that the Loom of Fate had been destroyed and scattered throughout the multiverse, but now that the worlds had merged following the events of "Crisis on Infinite Earths," the Loom was closer than it had been in thousands of years -- and the Fates couldn't wait to rewrite reality to suit them.

DC's Legends of Tomorrow airs on Tuesday nights at 9 p.m. ET/PT, following episodes of DC's Stargirl on The CW.
