LoT: The JSA (Sorta) Returns in ‘Camelot/3000’

Been a while, but here is some new Legends news when the synopsis of episode 2×12 was released yesterday. Two fortunate things, and that’s the JSA sort of returning in the episode and that it is borrowing the title from the famous DC mini-series that ran from 1982 to 1985. The story was about King Arthur, Merlin, and reincarnated Knights of the Round Table to fight off an alien invasion in the year 3000. While it is obvious that the episode won’t be an adaptation of the comic book, there is some reference to it with it centering around King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. Here is a quick synopsis:

The Legends continue their quest to hunt down the Spear of Destiny before the pieces fall into the hands of the Legion of Doom.  The Legends discover that pieces of the Spear are each being guarded in different time periods by members of the JSA.

Their first stop is the future where they find Dr. Mid-Nite (guest star Kwesi Ameyaw) which eventually leads them to the past and King Arthur’s Camelot, where Stargirl (guest star Sarah Grey) is protecting her piece of the Spear. In order to protect the Spear shard from the now-evil Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill), the Legends must join forces with the Knights of the Round Table.

I am very excited that the JSA is returning because they were awesome when we first got to see them in the first few episodes (along with Lance Henriksen later on). While this episode does sound really cool, it is clear that Rip doesn’t get switched back in the next episode ‘Turncoat’ (where he goes back in time to kill George Washington). Add to the fact that they are still trying to get all of the pieces before the Legion of Doom gets them. However, it does seem that he MIGHT be turned back by the episode ‘Moonshot’ (episode 2×14) because he is seen speaking with Commander Steel. We could assume that it is present day evil-turned-good Rip OR more likely a flashback with Rip talking to Commander Steel about hiding a piece of the Spear of Destiny (now that we know this episode synopsis). So, that explains those pictures, or at least what we can assume.
