Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 – Civil War zombies!

Sometimes, it is pretty easy to hype up stories for an upcoming show like “Legends of Tomorrow” — all you have to do is talk about where the team is going, in addition to whatever sort of craziness they could be facing off against.

For example, just take a look at what is coming on the upcoming November 3 episode entitled “Abominations.” The synopsis below gives you a pretty good indication that there is going to be some craziness that comes from the Legends being in the Civil War, and it is not exactly what you would expect from the era:

“When the Legends discover a time Aberration in 1863, they find themselves fighting for survival during the Civil War with Confederate soldiers who have been turned into zombies. With the Civil War outcome hanging in the balance, Jax (Franz Drameh) must participate in a daring mission by going to a slave plantation with Amaya (Maisie Richardson-Sellers). Meanwhile, Sara (Caity Lotz) begins to feel the burden of the decisions she has to make as the leader, and Ray (Brandon Routh) struggles to find his purpose on the team.”

Basically, we’re getting zombies and Civil War battles in the same place, which is completely crazy. With that being said, we hope that the show does emphasize this sort of stuff moving forward just because drama is not really the show’s specialty. They tend to emphasize more the spirit of adventure, and if the writers can somehow manage to figure out a way to make zombies make some sense, why not let them run with it?
