Last we saw the Legends, they were on their way to Aruba for a well-deserved vaction when they encountered a time storm which knocked the Waverider off course, causing them to crash-land in 2017 Los Angeles, but it certainly didn’t look like present day LA, with buildings from all different time periods and dinosaurs running rampant in the streets. We learned earlier today that Legends of Tomorrow will be returning on October 10th and one of the show’s stars is already teasing what we can expect.
Caity Lotz, who stars as Sara Lance aka the White Canary, the new Captain of the Waverider, recently spoke to TVLine and while she couldn’t say much about Season 3, she did tease a few things:
“I don’t know much, actually. A little bit of some talks about love interests for Sara and that it’s gonna be crazier than it was, even crazier than it was last season.”
One potential love interest for Sara could be Zari Adrianna Tomaz, aka Isis, who was just announced for the show, to be played by Tala Ashe (American Odyssey, Smash). When the interviewer pointed out that we’ve heard about a “Muslim hacktivist from the year 2030,” the actress was surprised that this was common knowledge.
“Um, yes. I didn’t know that anybody else knew yet.”
“After the defeat of Eobard Thawne and his equally nefarious Legion of Doom, the Legends face a new threat created by their actions at the end of last season. In revisiting a moment in time that they had already participated in, they have essentially fractured the timeline and created anachronisms – a scattering of people, animals, and objects all across time! Our team must find a way to return all the anachronisms to their original timelines before the time stream falls apart. But before our Legends can jump back into action, Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) and his newly established Time Bureau call their methods into question. With the Time Bureau effectively the new sheriffs in town, the Legends disband – until Mick Rory (Dominic Purcell) discovers one of them in the middle of his well-deserved vacation in Aruba. Seeing this as an opportunity to continue their time travelling heroics, Sara (Caity Lotz) wastes no time in getting the Legends back together. We reunite with billionaire inventor Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), the unconventional historian-turned-superhero Nick Heywood (Nick Zano), and Professor Martin Stein (Victor Garber) and Jefferson “Jax” Jackson (Franz Drameh), who together form the meta-human Firestorm. Once reunited, the Legends will challenge the Time Bureau’s authority over the timeline and insist that however messy their methods may be, some problems are beyond the Bureau’s capabilities. Some problems can only be fixed by Legends.”
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow returns for its third season Tuesday October 10th on The CW.
