In a surprising cold open, young Martin Stein stands in line to buy a Beebo doll for his daughter Lily. Unfortunately, there is only one left and five year olds can’t wait until February! Young Martin channels his inner Oliver Queen and snags the last Beebo doll. As he is running from the crowd of “barbarians,” he instantly becomes this week’s anachronism when he is transported to Vinland and encounters real barbarians.
Leo, the Legends new resident therapist, has decided to hold grief counseling sessions with a Professor Stein puppet. Perhaps this was a bit in poor taste, and luckily for Jax, his session is interrupted by an anachronistic time quake. After Martin Stein showed up in Vinland with a Beebo doll, Leif Erikson conquered North America in 1000 AD.
The Legends head to 1000 AD on a recon mission and discover young Martin held captive. Jax frees him and they return to the Waverider to discover the anachronism has somehow gotten worse. While the team try to decide how to best retrieve the Beebo doll, Agent Sharpe decides to check-in and offer her condolences on the loss of Dr. Stein. It’s a Beebo Day miracle!
The Legends and Agent Sharpe do their best to blend in with the locals and find the Beebo doll. Mick finds it first, along with some booze, attracting the attention of Freydis. According to her, Beebo hungers for a blood sacrifice, so the plan is to burn Mick Rory alive. As everyone gathers around the pire, Leo prepares his cold gun and quenches the fire at the last minute. Nate and Amaya try to steal Beebo during the diversion and accidentally squeeze him. A battle ensues over Beebo and Rory ends it by burning the Beebo doll. Lightning strikes and Damien Darhk appears dressed as Odin.
The Legends return to the temporal zone to form a plan just as Jax leaves to return Martin to his rightful place in time. Zari convinces Jax to look for a loophole, so he writes Martin a letter and instructs him not to open it until November 28, 2017. Unfortunately, Martin has seen Back to the Future.
With the Tim Bureau unwilling to help, the Legends come-up with a plan to stop Darhk and diffuse the anachronism. Just as Darhk is about to disappear, Sara tries to follow him and is transported directly to Mallus’ lair. Sharpe pulls her out to rejoin the team.
Jax learns Martin still dies in 2017 and travels back to 1992 to confront him. He explains to Jax (again) that he lived a life full of adventure and now Jax needs the chance to live his. After the two shake hands, he returns to the Waverider and breaks the news to Sara that he is returning to 2017. The Legends surprise him with a Christmas send-off and Sara returns him to Central City 2017.
She returns to the Waverider and finds John Constantine hiding in the shadows with an ominous message.
