This week’s episode of Legends of Tomorrow will center around relative newcomer Zari Tomaz as she attempts to escape a time loop that forces her to relive the same day, one where the Waverider blows up again and again. In an interview with Collider, actress Tala Ashe teased Zari’s future and offered fans a preview of the character’s relationship with Kid Flash once Wally West joins the team.
With the key to breaking the time loop potentially lying in the secrets of her teammates, Zari will have to work together with Gideon, which Ashe hinted will be an uneasy partnership:
“There’s definitely an antagonism between Zari and Gideon. Zari has messed with her operating system before, as a hacker, so there’s a little bit of wariness where Gideon is like, “You’re not my friend and I don’t trust you.” And Zari is like, “Well, I don’t really trust you, either. Just do what I say.” That’s where we are. I think there’s a mutual respect gained, by the end of the episode, from both of them. It was really, really fun to have Amy [Louise Pemberton] there, in the flesh.”
Keiynan Lonsdale’s Wally West will soon join the team and Ashe suggested that Kid Flash’s arrival will take some getting used to for Zari:
“As a person, I love Keiynan so, so much. I can’t overstate how wonderful he is and how grateful I am for his energy. Whenever someone new joins the show, it’s an exciting new energy. You’ll actually see Zari and Wally clash. By the end of Episode 311, Zari is like, “Okay, these team members are my family,” and then this new guy comes in and it’s like, “Who is this guy?!” He’s very over-eager, and he’s shiny and happy, which is not Zari’s vibe. There’s actually a really fun episode, coming up, where you’re gonna see Wally and Zari solve crimes together, and their differences will be highlighted. But I think, ultimately, there is an echoing of her own brother in Wally and I hope that actually gets explored more, as we go.”
Ashe also hinted at what fans can expect now that it has been revealed that Zari is “one of the six”:
“What I can say is that much of the rest of the season is gonna be about the totem mythology, and a lot of it centers around Amaya, but also these other totems. That’s what you’re gonna see play out, and with that, you’re gonna see more and more Mallus, and more and more of an embodiment of Mallus, which is fun and scary.”
