Legends of Tomorrow Season 6 E04 Preview: Rory Heats Up The Cold War

Unfortunately, The CW's DC's Legends of Tomorrow appears to be putting the singing on hold for this Sunday's episode "Bay of Squids" but that doesn't mean the excitement isn't going to stay at a This Is Spinal Tap-loving 11. The good news is that Rory (Dominic Purcell) is acting large and in charge when it comes to the alien-hunting and Sara (Caity Lotz)-finding. One not-so-small problem? Our Legends have landed smack in the middle of the Cuban Missile Crisis- leaving them no choice but to split up and play all sides to get o the Alien who can get them one step closer to their fearless leader- meaning American, Russian, and Cuban agents. Here's a look at the preview images, extended episode overview, and promo for this week's episode:

DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 6, Episode 4 "Bay of Squids": FOLLOWING ORDERS – The Legends are shocked when Rory (Dominic Purcell) takes command and manages to find the location of an important Alien, but he also lands them in the middle of the Cuban Missile Crisis. Ava (Jes Macallan) is eager to question the Alien, but they must steal it back from the Cubans and Russians who think it is bio-warfare sent by the Americans. The team makes the decision to split up, leaving Nate (Nick Zano) and Zari (Tala Ashe) to work together to stop a nuclear disaster alongside JFK while Behrad (Shayan Sobhian) tries to leverage his newfound friendship to stop Castro from starting a war. Meanwhile, with Spooner's (Lisseth Chavez) help, Rory makes an unlikely deal that could lead him on a solo mission to find Sara (Caity Lotz). Adam Tsekham, Olivia Swann, and Matt Ryan also star.

Lisseth Chavez (Chicago P.D., The OA) joins the long-running series in the series regular role of Esperanza "Spooner" Cruz. Tough and self-sufficient, Cruz is a tech whiz when it comes to detecting space aliens and providing defenses from them. Having survived a childhood encounter with an alien, Cruz now believes she can communicate telepathically with aliens. Aliyah O'Brien (Take Two, You Me Her) has been tapped for the recurring role of fearsome warrior Kayla. Known for her high body count and low patience for human incompetence, Kayla will be put through her paces working with and against our Legends as she's certainly not used to messing anything up much less for the better.
