DC's Legends of Tomorrow is doing a Halloween special tonight, and it's one that ties into the past of one of the characters. It's also the first adventure for the newest member of the team Zari Tomaz (Tala Ashe) and her first trip through time.
The CW has released a new video with executive producer Phil Klemmer taking a look at the episode and gives quite a few spoilers away… so I won't say anything more about it until after the photo. Bail now if you don't want to know.
The episode takes the team to 1988 when they find out that Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) is going to die because of the team having broken time. Young Ray finds an anachronism that he thinks is kind of a cute, E.T.-like creature… hence the episode title 'Phone Home'. The problem is that what he's actually found is a baby Dominator (Aliens from last year's crossover). Now the team has to go get it away from Ray, but since it's the Legends, things go very wrong.
This is Tala's first chance to see the world as something different than her police-state future. The episode takes place in Ivy Town, the university town that is the backdrop for many of the Atom's comic book adventures… both Palmer and Ryan Choi. Ivy Town has changed locations over the years, residing in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York, and Rhode Island so far.
DC's Legends of Tomorrow airs tonight at 9 p.m. ET on the CW.
