In this week’s episode of Legends of Tomorrow, the team must take it to Thawne and Darhk ‘80’s style as they follow the disastrous duo back to the decade of big hair and MTV.
As the team closes in on Hourman’s assassin, Eobard Thawne, Thawne is busy searching for new recruits for a team of his own, which includes a past version of Arrow’s own supernatural villain Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough). In this new featurette for the episode “Compromised”, executive producer Marc Guggenheim gives us the inside scoop of what fans are actually witnessing.
“In this episode, we really see the formation of, or the beginning of the formation of our Legion of Doom, our group of bad guys for the season,” reveals series executive producer Marc Guggenhein. “The Legends travel to 1987 Washington, DC. Just seeing the Legends of Tomorrow in Ronald Regan’s White House is a hoot in and of itself. It’s also just a heck of a lot of fun to see our cast members wear 1980’s clothing and particularly see the women in the 1980’s hairstyles and makeup. The 1980’s were a very interesting time fashion-wise.”
When the Legends trace a timequake to President Reagan’s White House, they are shocked to discover their old enemy Damien Darhk (guest star Neal McDonough) is now a Senior Adviser to Reagan. As the team works to uncover what Darhk has up his devious sleeve, Sara (Caity Lotz) struggles with the choice of getting revenge or helping with the team’s larger mission.
Thinking that the JSA members could be of help, Amaya (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) and Nate (Nick Zano) break into the JSA and are surprised at what they find. Meanwhile, Stein (Victor Garber) tries to prevent his younger self from creating an even bigger time Abberation.
David Geddes directed the episode written by Keto Shimizu & Grainne Godfree.
