There's nothing like "corporate synergy" to find a way to bring our Legends and Task Force X together for a good cause: shameless promotion that helps both teams. First, we have James Gunn's already well-received The Suicide Squad hitting theaters and HBO Max this weekend. Then we have The CW's DC's Legends of Tomorrow returning this weekend for the remainder of its sixth season (with production on Season 7 already underway). So it's really a win-win for everyone involved. And we appreciate the way it was approached, with TSS star Nathan Fillion ( Cory Pitzner / T.D.K. aka The Detachable Kid) offering an important distinction or two between the teams that could literally be the difference between life and death.
Here's a look at Fillion explaining that while there may be some similarities between the two teams, there are two very over-rated things separating the duo in a very big way (which Caity Lotz's Sara should really appreciate):
Now, it's time for preview images, an episode overview, and a promo for this Sunday's episode "The Final Frame", an episode filled with wedding planning gone wrong… a date gone wrong… and… well… some bowling gone wrong. Hmmm… definitely an episode with a whole lot of wrongs that our Legends will have to make right:
DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 6 Episode 11 "The Final Frame": STRIKE ZONE – When the Legends track down another Alien pod, they find a device that transports them to a cosmic bowling alley. Before consulting Sara (Caity Lotz), Astra (Olivia Swann) and Rory (Dominic Purcell), Spooner (Lisseth Chavez) makes a bet against the reigning champs for a ride back to the Waverider, but not everyone is happy about the plan when they realize what they are up against. Elsewhere, Nate (Nick Zano) plans a romantic date for him and Zari (Tala Ashe), but nothing goes as planned. Meanwhile, Behrad (Shayan Sobhian) and Gary (Adam Tsekham) try to distract Ava (Jes Macallan), from what's going on with wedding planning. Matt Ryan also stars. Jes Macallan directed the episode written by James Eagan & Ray Utarnachitt.
Last month at Comic-Con@Home, it was confirmed that production has just broken the second episode of the seventh season and is now breaking the 100th episode. Next, viewers learned that Amy Pemberton aka Gideon would be joining the cast in the flesh next season as the Vandal Savage storyline grows. And before you ask- yes, there will be an Ava/Sara wedding this season!!!! Also, the seventh season of DC's Legends of Tomorrow will find out heroes stranded in one particular time & place- no time or space travel whatsoever (think Jon Pertwee's Doctor in Doctor Who).
But perhaps the biggest news? Matt Ryan's John Constantine will be leaving the Waverider at the end of the sixth season- but Ryan is staying with the show. Ryan will be playing the character Dr. Gwyn Davies, who is described as a "sort of possible salvation for our team. He is an eccentric gentleman who lives approximately 100 years ago and according to the Legends, he's their only hope." You can check out the new trailer for the series' return:
