Other story development
- Unbeknownst to the team, they were followed by another Time Master and Chronos. While the first encounter between Time Master Druce and Rip Hunter was cordial. The Time Masters promised to forgive Hunter for his rebellion, as long as he surrender himself , the Waverider and return his team to where the were original recruited from. The Time Masters will also promised to fix all the altered time line that the Legends had cross since. Hunter had an hour to reconsider and talk it over with his team and return in an hour for the rendezvous. This is all a guise from Time Master and his Chronos to take out Hunter and his team on the spot. He did not fall for the plan and brought some of his team to fend off the Time Master and his Chronos.
- The freshly recover Hawkgirl is suffering some side effects liken to White Canary’s blood lust. She exposed her blood lust by violently battling the Pentagon’s soldiers when the team need to escape from capture in the last-minute. Back in the ship, Hunter tasked White Canary to help her control that urge. Not a smart idea when both birds could barely control their own blood lust. They each took turn beat the crap out of the other as “training”. Not sure where this story line is going.
- Professor Stein and Jax Jackson simmering conflicts come to a boil in this episode. Ever eager to be the mentor and because of his guilt over the death of the first Firestorm(Robbie Armell), he incessantly lecturing Jax, instructing him what to do even when both were joined up as Firestorm. Jax is still not over the fact that he was drugged and kidnapped by Stein to join the team. The fact that he was force to leave his widowed mother without as much as a goodbye did not sit well with him. Their conflict almost cause Jax’s life when battling Time Master Druce and the Chronos.
- Leonard Snark discover Rip Hunter can be as cold and calculative as he is when Hunter did not send the rest of the reinforcement team to rescue Ray, Stein and Mike Rory. Instead he had Snart leave them and return with the Therma Core.
