DC's Legends of Tomorrow - Star City 2046

The time travelers get a glimpse in the bleak future of Star City when the damaged Waverider lands in 2046. Although Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell) feels at home in the dystopian future and a few of the members are curious about their loved ones, Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) cautions leaving the time period as quickly as possible. However, after encountering the city’s new Green Arrow (Joseph David-Jones) fighting a loosing battle to save a lost city, Sara (Caity Lotz) decides to take stand.

Along with offering audiences it’s version of Connor Hawke (who bears almost no resemblance to the original character), the jaunt into the future also for an appearance by an older Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) who moves ridiculously well for a man in his 60s. Sara’s driving need to save a future that won’t even exist after the Waverider leaves the time period eventually allows for the entire team to take the field in a climactic battle against a second-generation villain (Jamie Andrew Cutler) who lacks his father’s on-screen presence. Although old Oliver is the most memorable piece of the episode, the piece likely to have the most lasting effect on the team is Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) betrayal of his friend in favor of the mission, something I’m guessing Heat Wave won’t be able to forgive or forget any time soon.
