Helen of Troy steals the limelight from brilliant inventor/actress Hedy Lamarr, inadvertently starting a war among the Hollywood studios. Who’s mad about who now?
Hollywoodland 1937. The Golden Age of the movie business. Helen of Troy dropping men left and right, and causing a war despite being in a different time and place. Back on the Waverider, Nate is in desperate need of a shower, but eventually discovers Helen as the anachronism. Unfortunately, not before Ray accidentally cause Jax and Dr. Stein to switch bodies. Must be Tuesday.
The Legends head out to a Hollywood gala, hoping to convince Helen to come quietly and return to her own time. The team did not predict that Helen would not want to leave her new home. She has no desire to return to a time where thousands are killed in her name. Sara follows her back to the party and runs right into her new agent: Damien Darhk.
Apparently, anachronisms are good for business! Whatever that means. Darhk offers the Legends a deal: they return to 2017 and he let’s them all live. What a guy. Too bad he’s probably lying. The Legends return to the Waverider, after Ray, Nate and Mick start a fist fight over, you guessed it, Helen.
After that incident, Sara returns to the field with Amaya and Zari to rescue Helen with their own version of a Trojan Horse (“Did he just say?”). This time they are able to convince her to leave after a studio war breaks right in front of her. They all return to the Waverider and find systems are failing one after another. Apparently Helen’s displacement of Hedy Lamarr has had far reaching consequences no one quite anticipated.
Stein as Jax returns to 1937 to set Hedy Lamarr on her rightful path. Unfortunately, they run straight into Darhk and his daughter/Mallus. Sara has anticipated this might happen and the Legends run into the field to save Stein as Jax. Sara convinces Darhk to duel, League of Assassins style, with no magic. Unfortunately, Eleanor does not have to play by the rules. Just when we think Sara might have the upper hand, Eleanor attacks with powers eerily similar to her father’s.
While Sara is slowly dying, Hedy Lamarr convinces Jax and Stein to merge, knowing Firestorm can contend with Eleanor/Mallus. We see Stein as the “man on fire” and he gives Eleanor a run for her money. They turn and run, disappearing somewhere in time.
Meanwhile, back on the Waverider, Kuasa confronts Amaya after she takes out Zari. They have an enlightening chat before Helen stabs Kuasa and she turns to water, disappearing. Everyone returns to the Waverider, although Sara is in a coma to heal, and Zari returns Helen to her own time, but not to Troy. She leaves her on Themyscira, home of the Amazon warriors, and not a man in sight.
