While a recent theory from the Legends of Tomorrow subreddit had brilliantly suggested that ex. team leader and current M.I.A. member of the Legends, Rip Hunter, might be trapped at a point in time that ties his original mention in The Flash’s Season 1 finale in with the character’s current situation, set photos from YVRShoots indicate said theory may have been debunked. It’s entirely possible that the theory is still intact and that Rip Hunter returns prior to the events of Legends of Tomorrow’s 11th episode of it’s second season, ‘Turncoat’ (the images below are from said episode) but as it stands it’s still to early to say.
