DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW Sneak Peek: Vandal Savage’s Daughter

Fathers and daughters. A dynamic like none other.

If a rose by any other name smells as sweet, is she recognizable under another name? For instance, is “Cassandra Savage” (guest star Jessica Sipos) the same daughter of Vandal Savage in DC Comics named “Scandal Savage?”

In tonight’s timeline, will Quentin Lance (guest star ARROW’s Paul Blackthorne) be the grieving father trying to tell Sara (Caity Lotz) of Laurel’s death?

Will the similarities between Scandal Savage and the White Canary affect the outcome?

Tonight, when DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW decide to battle Vandal Savage (guest star Casper Crump) on his own terms, they travel to 2166, just three months before Savage conquers the world.

Knowing this is their last chance to defeat the immortal, the team explores all avenues to his destruction and finds two possibilities.

One is a bracelet that Kendra (Ciara Renée) wore during her original life in ancient Egypt. The second is the discovery of Vandal’s daughter, Cassandra, who also seems to be immortal and is wearing Kendra’s bracelet.

The Legends decide to kidnap Cassandra and the bracelet and use them to defeat Vandal.

Whether or not this tactic will work may hark back to DC Comics where Vandal’s daughter generally is referred to as “Scandal Savage,” a woman who seems more in line with Sara Lance than with her own father.

Immortal herself, Scandal Savage is agile, beautiful, has a collection of weapons, heals quickly, is extremely smart, a born leader who has high stamina and is accomplished with a sword, at unarmed combat and with a variety of weapons, including wrist-mounted blades.

Scandal refuses to live under her father’s shadow, preferring to work alone or with The Secret Six or the BIRDS OF PREY. She has been shot by a Thanagarian rifle, and is familiar with Thanagar, the home planet of Hawkman and Hawkgirl.

A fictional planet in the DC Comics Universe, Thanagar is the original home of the humanoid Thanagarian race, noted for the discovery of gravity-defying Nth metal. The planet is in orbit around the star Polaris (although is sometimes quoted as being in the Polaris Galaxy).

Assumedly, like her father, she is aware of the Nth metal on the Thanagarian spaceship that landed over ancient Egypt, which gave Hawkman and Hawkgirl their original powers. The bracelet that Hawkgirl has been dreaming of may be the same one that is made of the Thanagarian Nth metal.

When the Legends kidnap Cassandra (who may or may not be the same person as “Scandal Savage”), Vandal goes crazier than usual and dispatches his minions to destroy the Legends using any means necessary including unleashing the Leviathan.

Yes, there he is again…the Leviathan. Except this time, do not expect SUPERNATURAL’S Misha Collins in a raincoat. Since Vandal’s first known gig was as an Egyptian priest, chances are he knows of the “Book of Giants,” an apocryphal work related to the Bible’s Book of Enoch. The Book of Giants is filled with stories of the Nephilim (giants born of mortal men and fallen angels) and the Leviathan, giant sea creatures who could walk on and destroy the Earth.

Whatever Vandal unleashes to destroy the Legends and conquer the world in 2166, using his daughter and the bracelet against him may bring him closer to destruction and pull Carter (guest star Falk Hentschel) back into Kendra’s orbit.

DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW also stars Victor Garber, Brandon Routh, Arthur Darvill, Franz Drameh, Amy Pemberton, Dominic Purcell and Wentworth Miller.

Guest starring tonight are Faye Kingslee (returning as The Pilgrim) Martin Donovan, Celia Imrie, Eli Goree, Sharon Taylor, Jason Bell and Celeste White.

Gregory Smith directed the episode titled, “Leviathan,” which as written by producer, Sarah Nicole Jones, and Ray Utarnachitt.

DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW airs tonight (April 28) at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on The CW in the U.S. and at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on CTV in Canada.
