Rip Hunter has been been missing ever since the start of season two, and it seems like he’s coming back for the new episodes of Legends Of Tomorrow. The official synopsis for the mid-season premiere has been released by the CW, and it talks about Hunter’s return.
“When Damien Darhk (guest star Neal McDonough) and Malcolm Merlyn (guest star John Barrowman) try to capture Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) in 1967, they create an Aberration big enough to draw the attention of the Legends. 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 (Bradon Routh) and Nate (Nick Zano) realize that the Aberration has also affected them personally making it difficult to help the team. Meanwhile, Rory (Dominic Purcell) asks Stein (Victor Garber) for help and makes him promise to keep it a secret from the team. ”
It will definitely be interesting to see Rip come back, and see what he’s been up to. He was the original leader of the Waverider, and now Sara Lance is leading the team. We’ll see if the old Rip Hunter comes back. The episode is titled Raiders Of The Lost Art, and it premieres January 24, in its new Tuesday at 9/8c timeslot. Check out the preview below
