Now that they’re done fighting aliens, the Legends of Tomorrow can get back to what’s most important: Remaking old Star Trek episodes. Yep, they’re going to Chicago and they’re fighting gangsters, because really, they sort of have to. A world with The Untouchables and one of the greatest movie themes of all time is an unthinkable hellscape.

Fine, fine, there’s also that whole “preventing corruption” and “preserving the timestream” thing. Also interesting is how this episode will be bringing Wentworth Miller’s Captain Cold back into the mix. Miller, of course, will be joining Damien Dahrk, Eobard Thawne, and Malcolm Merlyn as the Legion of Snarking And Also Doom, and their evil plan to… well, so far their evil plan seems to consist mostly of trolling our heroes by flagrantly screwing up the time stream.

Beyond that, we’ll also be curious to see how the events of last week’s weird dream sequence, combined with last night’s big reveal on Arrow, will hit Sarah. We won’t reveal just what it is, for people who are a few days behind, but suffice to say it’s a fairly big shift and one unlikely to be without any consequences. We’ll see if those consequences start tonight at 8pm EST on the CW. Join us, won’t you?
