'DC's Legends of Tomorrow' Season 5 is about to drop its craziest episode yet with Episode 14 'The One Where We're Trapped On TV' set to kick things up to a whole new level. Picking up where Episode 13 left off, Episode 14 will see the Legends transported to parodies of 'FRIENDS', 'Downton Abbey', 'Star Trek' and 'Mister Rogers' Neighborhood'.

The 'Legends' cast is practically notorious for their zany performances that fit in well with the show's no-holds-barred comedic tone but Episode 14 is going to be something truly special. Because in Episode 14, we get to see Dominic Purcell channel his inner Khan Noonien Singh.

"The funny thing about Dom is he’s actually never seen 'Wrath of Khan'. So what you’re seeing there is his impression of my impression of Ricardo Montalbán," series consulting producer and episode director Marc Guggenheim told TVLine. "Everyone in the cast really absorbed and took to their parts like a duck to water, but Dom, he's got the Khan bare chest outfit with the long, flowing hair, and he was just having the time of his life. It was really great to see. That’s the great thing about the Legends cast is there's nothing off-limits. They tackle everything with absolute abandon."

The episode will also feature Caity Lotz pulling off her best/worst impression of Captain Kirk (William Shatner). This is Guggenheim's first time in the director's chair and he's got a great show planned for fans. And the best part? Despite all the craziness, Episode 14 isn't just a filler story and it actually does move the season's plot forward in an important way.

"I think the last three episodes of the season are kind of a trilogy," Guggenheim said. "Episode 13 leads into [Episode] 14, [which] leads into [Episode] 15. Without giving anything away, it says a lot about the relationship that Charlie has with the Legends and the relationship the Legends have with themselves. And in this episode, all the characters have to make a very sort of personal choice. It's the classic hero's journey choice of, 'Do I live It's a Wonderful Life or do I accept reality and all the burdens and consequences that that brings?'"

In the episode, we'll be seeing the team trapped on the shows 'Ultimate Buds' ('FRIENDS' parody), 'Highcastle Abbey' ('Downton Abbey' parody), and 'Star Trip' ('Star Trek' parody). The 'Mister Rogers' Neighborhood' parody 'Mr. Parker's Cul-De-Sac' has already been featured on the show and we'll be returning to it again in this episode and there's also a fifth set, the dystopian Loom World (sort of like 'Doomworld' but with a lot more looming) created and controlled by the Fates.
