Well, that’s it folks, Mallus is out of the time cage. Beebo help us all.
The team’s on double duty this week with Amaya attempting to rewrite history while Grodd attacks Barack Obama. The Legends make quick work of Grodd when Ray shrinks him down and puts him in a jar. Grodd’s failure keeps Mallus at bay, to Nora’s disappointment, but Damien realizes that once Mallus is freed, Nora will be gone. Worried, he reaches out to the Legends for help.
If only Wally and Nate’s task of convincing Amaya not to change history was as easy. She insists she will save her village and does not want Nate or Wally to interfere. Nate witnesses older Amaya start a totem ceremony to pass the Anansi totem to her daughter, Esi. Unfortunately, Esi is not up to the task and sends Kuasa with Baby Mari to explain to Amaya that she will not be coming. Delighted, 1942 Amaya now knows this is how she can save her people. But at what cost?
Back on the Waverider, Damien Darhk offers the water totem as a peace offering and tries to convince the Legends they need to work together to keep Mallus imprisoned and save his daughter. Sara seeks counsel from both Ava and Barry, and in the end, decides to accept Damien’s help. But how?
Well, as it so happens, Mick has discovered the Lord of the Rings films and Denethor sounds remarkably like Mallus. (Gee, I wonder why?) Ray heads off to New Zealand 1999 to convince John Noble to read some revised lines for the film. (This is crap, isn’t it?) Ray records the performance and tags along with Damien to convince Nora that Mallus is speaking to her. Playing along, Damien goes along with her suggestion to travel to the Waverider where she is trapped with Constantine’s spell. Angered, Mallus pushes Nora further into the spirit world and takes over her body.
Meanwhile in Zambesi, Amaya convinces her daughter to stand-up and accept her birthright. Her people need her to protect them. At the same time, Nate attempts to take the older Amaya’s totem, preventing her from passing it to Esi, and fails. Epically. After stumbling around, he tries to take the totem and it activates, waking Amaya who’s still got it. Before she kills him, he tries to make her remember him and realizes she must have wiped her memory when she left the Legends.
When Nate eventually sides with Amaya, Wally returns to the Waverider and explains to the team what is happening. Oddly enough, Sara concludes they should let Mallus out because it may be the only way to kill him once and for all. After all, they do have all six totems and Damien offers to wield Death so Sara doesn’t have to.
Everyone heads to Zambesi and waits for Esi to defeat the warlords. Only there is one not so teeny tiny (anymore) problem: Damien has brought Grodd along to prevent the Legends from rewriting history and letting Mallus out of the time cage. Can’t they understand? He just wants the village to die so he can save his daughter.
Nate uses the Earth totem and stops Grodd from destroying the village. Damien has released Nora from the spell circle and seconds later the time cage shatters, along with Nora’s body. Mallus emerges in his true form and disappears, leaving the Legends and Damien in dismay.
