It looks like Season 3 of The CW's "Legends of Tomorrow" will end with a bang. In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, executive producer Marc Guggenheim said that they achieve "peak'Legends'" in the last two episodes of the current season. In next week's Season 3, episode 17, Sara (Caity Lotz) and Rip (Arthur Darvill) team up to stop Grodd from going after young Barack Obama. Titled as "Guest Starring John Noble," the installment also features an appearance by Noble, who voices Season 3 big bad Mallus. But instead of playing the time demon, Noble will appear as himself during the time he was filming "Lord of the Rings."
The Waverider crew tries to defeat Mallus once and for all in the Season 3 finale of "Legends of Tomorrow." According to the synopsis for Season 3, episode 18 of the CW series, the Legends' plan to vanquish Mallus (voiced by John Noble) by using the totems doesn't go as planned, forcing Rip (Arthur Darvill) to improvise. Members of the team find themselves regrouping in the Wild West where they run into their old pal Jonah Hex (Johnathon Schaech). While coming up with a new plan, Sara (Caity Lotz) leaves Ray (Brandon Routh) in charge of watching Damien Darhk (Neal McDonaugh). And despite a failed attempt to destroy Mallus using the totems, Amaya (Maisie Richarson-Sellers) remains determined to find a way to use the trinkets to destroy the time demon.
According to the synopsis for Season 3, episode 15 of the CW series, Sara (Caity Lotz) becomes the bearer of one of the six mystical totems when Mallus' (voiced by John Noble) power over her resurfaces. In the trailer for the episode, Sara hears a voice telling her to wield the Death Totem. "The Death Totem chose you. Pick up the totem, Sara," the mysterious voice says. When Sara removes the totem out its encrypted lockbox, Mallus quickly takes control of her and starts attacking her fellow Legends.
