Legends Of Tomorrow Season 3: Inside The Episode 'Zari'

Tonight's episode of DC's Legends of Tomorrow introduces us to the newest member of the team, Zari Adrianna Tomaz (Tala Ashe), a hacktavist from the future who is being hunted down by both ARGUS and Kuasa (Tracy Ifeachor) the 'Water Witch' and granddaughter of Amaya Jiwe (Maisie Richardson-Sellers). As executive producer Phil Klemmer sets up the episode, we learn that the team ends up responding to a distress signal from Time Bureau Agent Gary Green (Adam Tsekhman) who we already saw was following the team last week.

The fact that she's being hunted by ARGUS is new as is the fact that Kuasa is going after her. But the most interesting thing about this could be the reference to her brother. In the comics, Adrianna Tomaz becomes Isis after receiving an amulet from Black Adam. The two fall in love and he helps her find her kidnapped brother, Amon. They find him tortured and crippled. Isis can only heal him so far, so Black Adam tells Amon to say his name. Amon is then transformed into Osiris. They have yet to refer to Zari as Isis, so it's possible they may not maker her brother be Osiris or even be tortured or crippled. And it's a pretty safe bet we're not going to see Black Adam. But the fact the Zari agrees to help the team if they help her break her brother out of prison sets up something.

And the ending line of Mick Rory (Dominic Purcell) saying, "A prison break… I'm in," is brilliant.
