‘Legends of Tomorrow’ Photo Peeks: “River of Time”

The CW has released new photos at next week’s Legends of Tomorrow, “River of Time.”

Now that the Legends have captured Savage, they all don’t necessarily agree on what to do with him next. While Rip is suggesting to deliver him to the Time Masters, Mick and Leonard don’t think that is such a wise decision. Their thoughts on the next step in Savage’s case leads them to thinking about their own next steps and whether they should be heading back to their own time.

Meanwhile, Kendra’s struggling with what to do with Savage after he tells her that she could possibly reunite with Carter. An option that may leave her relationship with Ray in the air as well as offering Savage plenty of ammunition to taunt Ray with.

“River of Time” will also feature a Nyssa/Sara reunion(!), if the photos are any indication. That has us asking a lot of questions about the where, when, how, and if she’s there to deliver some news.

Check out the photos below.

Legends of Tomorrow airs Thursday, May 5 at 8 p.m. on the CW.

Hulu is teaming up with one of Mad Men’s finest.

The streaming service has given a straight-to-series order to The Handmaid’s Tale. According to The Hollywood Reporter the drama has Elisabeth Moss attached to star.

The Handmaid’s Tale is based on Margaret Atwood’s novel and is set in the totalitarian society of Gilead. The steep decline in birthrate and the twisted religious fundamentalist running the republic make Gilead a less than ideal place for women. As one of the few remaining fertile women, Offred (Moss) is forced to become a Handmaid in the Commander’s household. The Handmaids are a caste of women forced to be sex slaves because of their fetility to repopulate the world. Offred must navigate her dangerous world, full of potential spies and cruel Commanders, to find the daughter snatched from her arms.

Bruce Miller will create, write and executive produce the project. Warren Littlefield, Fran Sears and Daniel Wilson will also executive produce. Atwood, the author of the source material, will serve as consulting producer.

This project is the first collaboration between Hulu and MGM.

Handmaid’s Tale is one of several projects Hulu is developing. Jason Katims’ The Path is currently airing and being released on a weekly basis. Chance starring Hugh Laurie and Shut Eye are the other two dramas being developed by the streaming service.

Moss, who is known for playing Betty Olson on Mad Men, will next be seen on the second season of crime drama Top of the Lake.

The 10-episode first season will debut in 2017.

We’re all in the present this week as we see Sarah, Alison, Cosima and Helena deal with their new Neolution threat. We ended last week’s episode with Sarah realizing she has one of those maggot bots embedded into the side of her cheek similar to the people Beth found before. And if you’re squirmy like I am about bugs, this was not the episode for you.

Sarah spends the better part of the episode trying to not be so freaked out about the bot and figure out what to do with it while we also get to see the return of Rachel!

All of the previews made it look like this would be the tense hour. The hour where Arizona and Callie took center stage in their fight for custody of their daughter. But… it wasn’t. Apparently, that’s next week.

Sure, there were conversations about the upcoming court case. But quite possibly there were just as many conversations about Owen’s… manhood. Because as Maggie so eloquently put it, “Major Hunt” was reporting for duty.

Canary Cry

After a mini-hiatus, Team Arrow has returned in the midst of the aftermath of Laurel’s death and the team is dealing with it in heartbreaking ways. The hour, while setting up for the rest of the season, also hit some interesting emotional beats and brought us back to the end of season one which brought up some feelings about how that all worked out then.

While everyone is in mourning and dealing with their own guilt (with Diggle suffering from a ton of guilt that could rival Oliver’s in earlier seasons), they have to deal with a problem that could potentially threaten the legacy their friend left as they go up against a copycat Black Canary.

Let’s break down “Canary Cry.”
