Plot Synopsis

In the year 2166, the immortal villain Vandal Savage is on the verge of his final victory -- total chaos and the utter destruction of humanity. As the world crumbles, the Time Master Rip Hunter takes matters into his own hands; to stop him, he travels 150 years into the past to assemble a carefully selected but disparate group of heroes and rogues: Hawkman, Hawkgirl, White Canary, The Atom, Firestorm, Captain Cold, and Heat Wave. Hunter has chosen what seems like an ill-matched group: billionaire inventor Ray Palmer, who has created an exo-suit with the power to shrink him to miniscule size, as the Atom; Sara Lance, the White Canary, a trained assassin; Professor Martin Stein and Jefferson 'Jax' Jackson, who together form the meta-human Firestorm; Leonard Snart, known as Captain Cold, and his partner Mick Rory (aka Heat Wave), a pair of career criminals; and Kendra Saunders (aka Hawkgirl) and Carter Hall (aka Hawkman). Convinced by Hunter to join him in the fight to defeat Savage, the group travels back and forth through time to try to stop Savage's plans from being set into motion, while Hunter struggles to keep to his duty as a Time Master and avoid irreparable damage to the timeline of history. The fate of the world is in the hands of this unlikely team, and the battle to save the earth will be legendary. Together, they must stop one of the most formidable villains of all time, while they must learn how to not only be a team, but heroes as well. On Tuesday, January 19, 2016 from 9-9:30pm ET/PT, The CW premiered a brand-new, half-hour special, DC'S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW: THEIR TIME IS NOW, featuring show clips and interviews from LEGENDS, ARROW, and THE FLASH executive producers Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg, Phil Klemmer, and Wendy Mericle.

After the defeat of the immortal villain Vandal Savage and the corrupt Time Masters who colluded with him, a new threat emerges. Dr. Nate Heywood, an unconventional and charming historian, is thrust into the action upon making a shocking discovery -- the Legends are scattered throughout time. Nate must find a way to rescue this beloved team of heroes and rogues. When the Legends encounter the J.S.A (the Justice Society of America, the precursor to DC's Justice League) in the 1940s, Amaya Jiwe (aka Vixen) joins the team. While the team reunites, a mystery looms -- the fate of former captain Rip Hunter. Once reunited, the Legends continue their new mission to protect the timeline from temporal aberrations - unusual changes to history that spawn potentially catastrophic consequences. When Nate, the grandson of J.S.A. member Commander Steel, unexpectedly finds himself with powers, he must overcome his own insecurities and find the hero within himself. Ultimately, the Legends will clash with foes both past and present, to save the world from a mysterious new threat.

However, when the team arrives they discover that Rip has no memories of his past due to "time drift" and is just a graduate film student. After trying to convince Rip of who he was, they discover that he possesses an incredibly powerful artifact known as the Spear of Destiny, which the Legion of Doom is after. Ray and Nate realize that the Aberration has also affected them personally making it difficult to help the team. Meanwhile, Roryasks Stein for help and makes him promise to keep it a secret from the team.
