Right on the heels of its college comedy episode 'Freaks and Greeks', 'DC's Legends of Tomorrow' Season 5 is moving on to a zombie apocalypse tribute with Episode 13 'I Am Legends'. The zombie story will see the team get stuck in John Constantine's (Matt Ryan) house during a zombie apocalypse, wasting away their hard-won 24-hour immortality on the living dead instead of using the Loom of Fate.

Things do not look good for the team as they face a horde of the undead clearly inspired by shows like 'The Walking Dead' and other zombie stories, including the movie 'I Am Legend' that's referenced in the episode title. And to make matters worse, this whole thing is just a distraction to keep them away from the Waverider while Charlie's (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) sisters steal the Loom of Fate.

The synopsis for the episode also teases that Gary (Adam Tsekhman) is going to have a major role to play in the episode. We're hoping it doesn't involve another demon dog but it is Gary we're talking about so all bets are off.

In any case, this is going to be quite the setback for the team considering they were on the cusp of using the Loom and finally resurrecting Behrad Tarazi (Shayan Sobhian). Now there's no telling what will happen unless they can escape the zombies and make it back to the ship, all before their immortality runs out.

Here's the official synopsis for 'I Am Legends': "STICKING TOGETHER – After drinking from the Chalice, the Legends have immortality for 24 hours, which gives them time to get to the Waverider and use the Loom of Fate. However, they quickly discover that the sisters have stolen the Waverider and they are stuck at Constantine’s (Matt Ryan) house in the middle of nowhere in London during a Zombie Apocalypse. Meanwhile, Gary (guest star Adam Tsekhman) is left on the ship and once he discovers what is going on, he takes something important to the sisters. Caity Lotz, Dominic Purcell, Nick Zano, Maisie Richardson-Sellers, Jes Macallan, Tala Ashe, and Olivia Swann also star."

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