One of the big mysteries that has to be solved before we can get to DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is where in the name of DC is Ray Palmer in the Flarrow-Universe? After his “death” in the Arrow season 3 finale this year, people have been speculating how the shrinking hero will be making his way back before DC’s Legends of Tomorrow kicks off. Now we have some big answers as the CW has released an official description for Brandon Routh’s first episode back on Arrow and some major plot points. Beware of spoilers below!
“RAY PALMER RETURNS FROM THE DEAD — Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) is frantic when she learns that Ray (guest star Brandon Routh) is alive and being held by Damien Darhk (guest star Neal McDonough). Felicity’s guilt over not finding Ray sooner causes tension between her and Oliver (Stephen Amell). Meanwhile, Sara (guest star Caity Lotz) joins Laurel (Katie Cassidy), Thea (Willa Holland) and the team on a rescue mission for Ray. However, the effects of the Lazarus Pit take over and threaten to jeopardize the entire operation. Donna Smoak (guest star Charlotte Ross) returns to Star City. Antonio Negret directed the episode written by Beth Schwartz & Emilio Ortega Aldrich (#406). Original airdate 11/11/2015.”
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is set to premiere in early mid-season of 2016 on The CW. The Flash airs on Tuesday nights at 8/7c on The CW, with Arrow airing on Wednesday nights at 8/7c as well.
