After what feels like a much shorter "long winter's nap" than usual (not that fans are complaining), the Javicia Leslie-starring Batwoman ("Trust Destiny") and Caity Lotz-starring DC's Legends of Tomorrow ("Paranoid Android") head back to CW screens this Wednesday, January 12. But when our Legends return, it won't quite be the ones we're used to. Think "robot clones" (with Nick Zano's Nate rocking the kind of arms a spinach-fueled Popeye would be proud of).
So with only a little more than two days to go until our heroes return, Lotz is sharing a fun look behind the scenes. In the first clip, we get another example of just how much ass Lotz kicks on the long-running Arrowverse series. And that spin-kick (I think?) she executes on the stunt coordinator made my chest hurt (and we know she was pulling her kick). And what better way to follow that up than with a tour of Zano's personal "gun show" (with Arnie accent thrown in for good measure):
Now here's a look back at the previously-released teaser, followed by the overviews for S07E08 "Paranoid Android" and S07E09 "Lowest Common Demoninator":
DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 7 Episode 8 "Paranoid Android": SEEING THINGS DIFFERENTLY – Sara (Caity Lotz) starts to realize her team is making questionable choices when it comes to the timeline. Trying to figure out who is behind everything, Sara discovers some harsh truths. Jes Macallan, Nick Zano, Tala Ashe, Olivia Swann, Adam Tsekham, Lisseth Chavez, Shayan Sobhian, Matt Ryan, and Amy Pemberton also star. David Geddes directed the episode written by Phil Klemmer & Marcelena Campos Mayhorn.
DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 7 Episode 9 "Lowest Common Demoninator": EMOTIONS RUN HOT – When Gideon jumps the time machine into the Manor Dimension, which lands in Hell, and Astra (Olivia Swann) realizes that a damned 90's reality show crew sneaks into the manner causing havoc. Unbeknownst to the Legends, the reality TV crew is causing emotions to spike, and Sara (Caity Lotz) and Ava (Jes Macallan) share their true feelings about their roles as Co-Captains. Behrad (Shayan Sobhian) seeks advice about Astra from Nate (Nick Zano) and Zari (Tala Ashe), but Behrad finds that his past is put on display instead. Meanwhile, when Gideon's (Amy Pemberton) opinions are ignored and her relationship with Gary (Adam Tsekham) is dismissed, no one could have anticipated what happens. Matt Ryan and Lisseth Chavez also star. Eric Dean Seaton directed the episode written by James Eagan & Emily Cheever.
