'DC's Legends of Tomorrow' has been playing with a bit of genre experimentation in Season 5 but recent episodes have stepped away from that. However, Episode 12 'Freaks and Greeks' is getting back to it with a college comedy complete with sororities, beer pong and football.

The episode will see the team going back to college to form a sorority but it's not all fun and games. They've got a mission and it might just bring them into conflict with the OG party god.

In 'Freaks and Greeks', the team will be hunting down an artifact called the Chalice of Dionysus, the Greek god of wine, drunkenness, debauchery and wild parties. Based on the synopsis, it appears Dionysus will be showing up in the episode, with 'Riverdale' star Drew Ray Tanner playing the character.

While it makes sense that the god of parties would hang out in a frat, we don't know what horrible trials he might have in store for our heroes.

One of the preview images appears to show him playing beer pong with Sara Lance / White Canary (Caity Lotz) so perhaps they just end up playing a bunch of party games for the Chalice without resorting to violence.


Then again, the Dionysus of mythology had followers who ripped people's heads off and the god himself had a penchant for driving people mad and turning them into dolphins so, really, anything can happen. Here's the synopsis for the upcoming episode:

"The Legends find themselves going back to college and form a sorority in order to try to retrieve an ancient artifact called the Chalice of Dionysus that will help Charlie (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) operate the Loom of Fate."

"Proud to be back at his college, Nate (Nick Zano) falls under Dion’s spell, letting him know of Sara (Caity Lotz), Astra (Olivia Swann), Ava (Jes Macallan) and Charlie's plan to get the cup."

"Meanwhile, on a father-daughter weekend, Rory (Dominic Purcell) takes Lita (guest star Mina Sundwall) on a college tour, but Rory bails on Lita for an unexpected reason. Tala Ashe and Matt Ryan also star. Nico Sachse directed the episode written by Matthew Maala and Ubah Mohamed."

'DC's Legends of Tomorrow' airs new episodes on Tuesdays at 9 pm ET on The CW.
