Seattle 2042. Our not so distant future has outlawed religion and metahumans, trading freedom for the safety of a police state patrolled by ARGUS. The Legends are introduced to Zari, a hacker, who inherited one of the Anansi totems from Zambesi.
The Legends intercept Gary’s distress call after he witnesses Kuasa kill two ARGUS guards transporting a prisoner. Kuasa is after their prisoner, Zari Tomaz, who possesses the Anansi totem which controls the wind. The Legends “rescue” Gary before Agent Sharpe can send back-up and track Zari to her hideout.
Unfortunately, an ARGUS drone follows the Legends, trapping them at the hideout. Zari hacks the drone so she can escape while the Legends are stuck. Fortunately, getting out of these situations is their specialty. The Legends regroup on the Waverider where Jax discovers Zari has quite the rap sheet. Rory seems impressed and knows what her next move will be: head to the bar.
The Legends join Zari at the bar and Kuasa shows up just after them. Jax and Zari head back to the Waverider while Sara and Rory start a bar fight with Kuasa. Back on the Waverider, Gary spills the beans, telling Zari that the Legends are time travellers, and she bargains with them. In exchange for using her as bait for Kuasa, she wants them to help break her brother out of prison. ARGUS prison.
But there’s a twist! It turns out Zari’s brother is dead and the only reason she wanted to break into the prison is to recover a totem her brother wielded. While there, Jax and Ray witness how the metas in the prison are being treated, and Jax decides to let them all go. So much for not changing history. With the totem in her possession, she activates it and flies away.
Meanwhile, back on the Waverider, Nate has a great idea to help Amaya: hallucinogenic tea! Since her problem is mystical, not scientific, he decides a vision quest is the best way to help her. They both drink the tea and have very different experiences: Amaya communes with her ancestors and learns that her powers are gaining strength because of a growing evil; Nate goes on a wild ride filled with Cheetos and Star Trek references.
While tracks Zari, the rest of the team return to the Waverider to regroup. Unfortunately, Gary has contacted Agent Sharpe and revealed their location. Agent Sharpe pays the Legends an unexpected visit in a giant time ship and threatens to shoot them out of the time stream. Kuasa, who is now a water metahuman, has found Ray and Zari and tries to reason with her to get the totem.
When that doesn’t work, she tries to drown Ray and fights with Zari. In the end, most of the Legends come to the rescue and Amaya makes Kuasa back down through the use of the spirit totem. Kuasa, confused at first, realizes who Amaya must be and disappears, using another rune to travel through time.
In the end, Amaya realizes (through her vision quest) that she is connected to Zari because they both wield Anansi totems. She offers Zari a place on Team Legends and she accepts.
