The next episode of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow may have my favorite synopsis yet. It reads, “The Legends run into Rip in 1897 London where they attempt to hunt down a time-traveling vampire.” The idea of a time-traveling vampire is very cool. And keep in mind, it says time-traveling not time-misplaced… so it may not be an anachronism. And we get more with Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill), so that’s always good. The episode also introduces us to Eleanor Darhk played by Courtney Ford, the wife of Brandon Routh.
Natalie Abrams added this little tidbit in her EW.com column giving us a clue that of who the vampire is: “Tuesday’s hour will find the Legends crossing paths with someone very, ahem, familiar. Let’s just say a beloved character will be pulling double duty during the hour, which features the team heading to 1897 London. Make of that what you will.”
Now, is she saying that Darvill is playing both Rip and the vampire? It’s possible. That would be very interesting. Now I don’t know of very many vampires in the DC universe. There is Andy Bennet / I Vampire, but that’s about all I can find. Not sure if this is a one off character or maybe part of the evil group that Mallus is putting together.
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow airs Tuesday at 9 PM on the CW.
