We saw the return of Rip Hunter in the mid-season finale of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow last month, but with a twist or two. It appears that Rip has no memory of his life as a Time Master or his adventures with the Legends. The CW released a new trailer today for the mid-season premiere “Raiders of the Lost Art” which focuses heavily on the group trying to get Rip to remember. Check out the trailer below along with the official description from the network at the bottom.
“Raiders of the Lost Art” — (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET) (TV-PG, V) (HDTV)
LOST MEMORIES — When Damien Darhk (guest star Neal McDonough) and Malcolm Merlyn (guest star John Barrowman) try to capture Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) in 1967, they create an Aberration big enough to draw the attention of the Legends. However, when the team arrives they discover that Rip has no memories of his past due to “time drift” and is just a graduate film student. After trying to convince Rip of who he was, they discover that he possesses an incredibly powerful artifact known as the Spear of Destiny, which the Legion of Doom is after. Ray (Bradon Routh) and Nate (Nick Zano) realize that the Aberration has also affected them personally making it difficult to help the team. Meanwhile, Rory (Dominic Purcell) asks Stein (Victor Garber) for help and makes him promise to keep it a secret from the team. Caity Lotz, Franz Drameh and Maisie Richardson-Sellers also star. Dermott Downs directed the episode written by Keto Shimizu & Chris Fedak (#209). Original airdate 1/24/2017.”
Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 will be moving to a new timeslot as of Tuesday, January 24 at 9/8c on The CW. Make sure to check back at Heroic Hollywood after every single episode of Season 2 for our weekly reviews.
