Welcome to the Waverider, fellow superhero fans! Tomorrow’s Legends is a TV review podcast that reviews each episode of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Stargirl, and Superman and Lois.

Let’s meet your hosts! The Wonder Twins, Martin the Flash and Jess aka Harley Quinn, started their podcasting journey in 2016 when they founded the SiberCast Network and launched Tomorrow’s Legends. Until 2020, the Wonder Twins exclusively covered DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, but as a global pandemic continued on, they filled the Legends hiatus with Stargirl. In 2021, Tomorrow’s Legends officially expanded to cover Superman & Lois, and welcomed one more host onboard the Waverider, Geoff aka XForce11! XForce11 is a co-host on Gotham Undercover, a podcast dedicated to the TV show, Gotham. The trio has known each other for many years as members of the same superhero-loving communities.

At Tomorrow’s Legends, we have a tradition of using superhero names. We encourage all our friends to adopt a superhero alias and join us on the Waverider as we discuss the shows we love! If you need help with a superhero name, send us an email and we will help you choose one.

Thanks so much for all your support! Please comment below, and as always, we love to hear from you, so send us feedback and we'll respond to it on the next episode! Also, don't hesitate to share us with all your superhero friends!

Return of the Darhk… Come on… Return of the Darhk… Here I am! Not exactly a sparkly vampire, but hey, we’ll take it.

 

Synopsis

 

Rip has traveled to the time of Jack the Ripper for the sole purpose of doing his best Sherlock Holmes impression. Or just to chase an evil god who exists throughout time. Meanwhile, back on the Waverider, Nate pulled an all nighter to work out the pattern of the anachronism map. As it turns out, the map’s pattern is the golden ratio and forms a spiral pattern, except for two outliers: Seattle 2042 and London 1895.

 

The team travels back to Victorian London and interviews the coroner who performed the autopsy on their anachronistic corpse. He explains that the corpse fell from the sky and promptly stole his futuristic watch. He directs the Legends to a cemetery where he buried the corpse in an unmarked grave. Unfortunately, someone has beaten them there, twice! The Legends expect to find a very dead corpse and are surprised when a very alive Rip Hunter crawls out of the grave.

 

Against all odds (#sarcasm), Rip Hunter has gone rogue and decided to pursue his own personal crusade, an evil being named Mallus that even the Time Masters do not speak of. In return for the Legends’ help, he promises to get the Time Bureau off their backs. So they decide to use Pretty as bait and lure the vampire out of the Shadows. However, Rip and the team find a little more than they bargained for. Stein’s great-great-grandfather has teamed up with the “vampire” surgeon and a cult called The Shrouded Compass. As it turns out, they are trying to raise someone from the dead using a blood moon ritual.

 

While Sara and Rip rescue Nate and discover Damien Darhk, the mystic Eleanor has entranced Zari by channeling her dead brother. Unfortunately, this also blows their cover and a brawl ensues in the main parlour. Our team head back to the Waverider where Sara confronts Rip and they both accuse the other of losing perspective. Rip admits he was wrong and then activates the Gentleman’s Dreadnaught, sealing the Legends inside the ship. Unbeknownst to the team, Zari has already left to bargain with Eleanor.

 

Using Zari’s totem, Eleanor begins the ceremony to raise Darhk from the dead. Rip, however, has other plans. He demands to speak to Mallus through Eleanor and while they converse, the full blood moon magically raises Darhk from the dead, powers and all. Portals open and the Time Bureau agents arrive to help Rip, but they are powerless against Damien Darhk. They are slaughtered, and just before Rip meets his end, the Legends arrive to save Rip, but too late for the Time Bureau agents who are all dead.

 

After Rip’s betrayal, Sara has informed Agent Sharpe of his whereabouts. She turns up on the Waverider with Director Bennett to take Rip back home to face the tribunal. In exchange, the Waverider is free to roam the skies, fixing time.
