Picking up right where last week left off, the team is under immediate strain as the Pilgrim begins hunting them down one by one as their younger selves.
Although a serious threat, they manage to find humor and fun in seeing their younger selves, and even try to impart wisdom to themselves.
During the attempts on their younger lives, we see exactly why the Pilgrim should be feared as she displays some amazing abilities the team wasn't prepared for. But learning to work together, and form a plan, they find a way to overcome this awesome new adversary.
At Mick Rory's suggestion, Rip decides to run to the town of Salvation in 1871, a fragmentation in the timeline to hide the team from the Hunters. Everyone on the team is eager to explore the Wild West and head to the local saloon while Rip remains behind on the Waverider.
All too soon, Dr. Stein and Snart cause an altercation over a card game and start a brawl in the saloon, drawing the attention of Jonah Hex. Hex confronts the team and demands to know where Rip Hunter is. They all return to the Waverider where Rip and Hex have a cryptic conversation about the fate of Calvert, another town in the Wild West that was burned down by a local gang.
Despite knowing the consequences, Rip does nothing to stop the team from returning to town with Hex in order to save the town from the Stillwater gang. Ray becomes Sheriff and drives the gang out of town, granting the town a reprieve from their malice. Dr. Stein discovers a boy who is dying from Tuberculosis in an attempt to gain information on the Stillwater gang's hideout and decides to save his life, whatever the consequences.
Meanwhile, Kendra and Sara track down an older woman Kendra ran into at the saloon and learn that her love for Carter is fated and will likely doom any future relationship she could have.
After locating the Stillwater gang, Hex, Snart, Rory, Ray and Jax kidnap their leader but Jax is also taken captive and the team is forced to leave him behind. In order to save Jax, Rip decides to challenge Stillwater to a duel and we finally learn the reason he has refused to leave the ship or actively help rescue the town. Just as Rip wins the duel, the Hunters appear and attack the team. We learn the Omega Protocol is being enacted and the Time Masters will send the Pilgrim to hunt down the team throughout time, eliminating them from the timeline one by one.

The team heads to 2147, with Rory imprisoned on the Waverider, to stop Vandal Savage. Rip informs the team that a tyrant named Per Degaton rises to power under Vandal's guidance, and ultimately releases a virus which decimates the world population, leaving it ripe for Vandal Savage to take over power.
We learn Per Degaton is a teenage boy and the team wrestles with the idea of killing a child. In the end, they decide to kidnap Per Degaton and remove him from the timelines. In theory this would remove the avenue through which Vandal Savage would rise to power.
While in pursuit of Per Degaton, we are introduced to the world of 2147 in the Kasnia Conglomerate where Ray's atom suits have morphed into robots that police the citizens of Kasnia. Team Kidnapping pursues Per Degaton while Team Robot investigates the technology behind the Ultron-like robots.
After a successful kidnapping and a disturbing revelation about Ray's past, the team checks the timeline to see the effect of kidnapping Per Degaton. We learn Kendra is having flashbacks to the 1920's where her and Carter had their son, Aldous. Sara has a chat with Rory and Rip decides to take matters into his own hands. He disappears with Per Degaton, presumably to kill the boy in order to save his wife and son.
While Rip is away, Per's father, Tor Degaton, reviews video surveillance to find his son. Savage reveals that he knows the people who took his son and reassures him that he will remain unharmed. Savage leads the team to the Waverider through his connection to Kendra and a battle ensues until Rip trades Per Degaton for Sara.
As the team regroups on-board the Waverider, Snart and Rory decide to duke it out (literally) and we learn Rory apparently does have some humanity left after all. After refusing to kill Snart, he reveals to the team the Hunters are after them after his failure as Chronos to bring the team to the Vanishing Point.
In closing, we see the impact of the team's actions on the future. Per Degaton kills his father and names Vandal Savage his proxy at the head of the board. With Savage in charge, the virus is released 5 years earlier then in the previous timeline.
As the show opens, we witness Cronos boarding the Waverider and find out the reason Ray, Kendra and Sara were left behind in 1958. For reasons yet to be determined, Cronos has sent the remainder of the team into a free fall through time and kidnapped Snart.
When our stranded heroes are not rescued within 10 hours of the Waverider's mysterious disappearance, Kendra and Sara begin to lose hope and decide to leave Harmony Falls. After 10 months, Sara has lost all hope of being rescued and leaves Ray and Kendra to find a place where she belongs.
Meanwhile, Rip manages to reboot Gideon and return to the closest point in time after Cronos sabotaged the navigation system: 1960. Just before Ray can propose to Kendra, the beacon he built to signal the Waverider comes online and hails the Waverider.
Cronos and Snart are getting to know one another when a UFO sighting in 1960 announces the presence of the rest of the team. It seems everyone is now off to Nanda Parbat to "rescue" Sara while Cronos follows with the intention of taking down the rest of the team.
In an unexpected turn of events, Sara takes the entire team prisoner to await their death for trespassing at the hands of R'as al Ghul, but Rip requests a trial by combat in an effort to save the team from their almost certain death. When R'as nominates Sara to take his place, Rip does the same, leaving Kendra to face Sara and appeal to whatever humanity she may have left. As Sara hesitates to kill Kendra, Cronos storms in, R'as releases the team, and an epic fight sequence ensues. Snart reappears in the nick of time to prevent the team from killing Cronos and reveals to the team he is really Mick Rory.
The team returns to the Waverider with all team members accounted for and tries to decide Rory's fate. He remains alive and a prisoner, for now, and Rip announces there is one place in time where he knows they can find Vandal Savage for certain: 2147.
