Gideon! Plot a course to Vancouver 2213. I have a sneaking suspicion things may not be as they seem… Wait, what do you mean Amaya went to the M’Changa Province 1992? Doesn’t she know that’s exactly what Mallus wants???
After her battle with the Death totem and recent break-up with Ava, Sara is ready to take a break. Fortunately, Gary turns up before she can leave and announces that Ava has not been to work in a few days, which is basically unheard of. So, naturally, Sara and Ray team-up with Gary to find her. In her absence, she leaves Amaya in charge of the Waverider.
Nate and Wally discover that Mari, who has lost her powers now that Amaya has lost her totem, has been injured in a fire. Amaya immediately expresses an interest in checking on her granddaughter, but Nate convinces her that he and Wally can handle it. Unfortunately, when they arrive in Detroit 2018, Kuasa is not far behind them. They confront her and she reveals she is there to protect Mari, not hurt her. Kuasa reveals that she would much rather her sister have the totem than Nora Darhk. They come-up with a plan to help both of them: Kuasa will use Nate as bait to trick the Darhks into returning Amaya’s totem.
The plan works! Sort of… Kuasa gets the totem and returns it to Amaya, but she leaves Nate to face the Darhks alone. Nate lucks out though. Damien seems to have lost his mojo now that Nora’s face has Mallus written all over it. They bond and pretend Nate is being tortured until Nora shows up out of nowhere and catches them in the act. She flings Damien aside knocking him unconscious and Wally speeds into the Vixen cave with Amaya.
Mallus is too strong and quickly overpowers the both of them. He steals Wally’s speed, using it against him, and prevents Amaya from properly channeling Spirit. Kuasa enters Vixen’s hideout to protect her grandmother. She redeems herself, explaining to Nora that family is more important than power, and Nora rips the water totem from her chest, killing her.
Meanwhile, Gary, Sara and Ray are snooping through Ava’s office to find out where she might be. They find a card from her parents in Fresno and decide to investigate. Are Ava’s parents to good to be true? Sara immediately picks-up on the Stepford vibe and knows they are too good to be true. She presses with questions she already knows the answers to, forcing them to reveal the truth: they are hired actors.
Stymied, they return to the Time Bureau and run into… Ava! Who claims she has been with her parents, which they know is a complete lie, since they were just there. Sara swipes Ava’s time courier to figure out just where she has been. Everything is by the book, but they notice her first mission, Vancouver 2213, is off limits and no one can travel there except for the Mothership. So naturally, they commandeer the Mothership to investigate.
None of them expect what they find though as they are confronted with hundreds of AVAs, clones, who have been created from the best genes in all of humanity. Their suspicions were correct: their Ava is an anachronism and time displaced 200 years in the past with no memory of 2213. Ava follows the Mothership and immediately faints when she is confronted with herself. When Ava comes to, she has forgotten what she saw, but not for long. She reveals she was with her ex, and just when she thinks everyone hates her, she learns they are really being confronted with an army of AVAs.
Sara convinces Ava to pretend to be one of the clones so they can all escape with their lives. Unfortunately, an AVA they tied up has resurfaced and explains to the others our Ava needs to be reprocessed. In typical Legends fashion, a fight ensues and the Legends plus Ava (Gary didn’t really do much) take out the clones. They all return to the Waverider for a much needed drink.
Meanwhile, Zari has been attempting to train Mick how to use his totem. She ends up spinning him through the air after he calls her a bee-otch (a girl can only take so much on an empty stomach, negative thoughts or not) and only stops after Kuasa dies. Her totem signals the others, who feel her death through their totems. Mick wakes-up and shares dinner with Zari after sunset.
In the closing scene, Amaya, shaken by her granddaughter's death, makes the decision to go to 1992 and save her dwindling family.
