Things are heating up on 'DC's Legends of Tomorrow' Season 5 with John Constantine (Matt Ryan) on his deathbed and the Encore threat getting more and more complicated. With Sara Lance / White Canary (Caity Lotz) away on a mission of her own, Sara's girlfriend Ava Sharpe (Jess Macallan) has to lead the Legends as their interim captain, which isn't exactly going as well as she would hope. So obviously things get a whole lot worse.

In Episode 6, 'Mortal Khanbat', the Legends go up against none other than Genghis Khan. The historical conqueror is the latest Encore to return from hell but the promo for the episode reveals that unlike the rest of his compatriots who came back to life almost immediately after their deaths, Genghis is reappearing in 1990s Hong Kong.

We are sure there is some sort of logical explanation for this but then again it's 'Legends', so probably not. In either case, the team is going to be hard-pressed to beat Khan, especially since he is bound to have gotten some infernal upgrades as part of his resurrection. The promo also reveals there will be at least one 'Wrath of Khan' joke involved so that's something to look forward to.



 

Meanwhile, Constantine is slowly but surely dying of cancer, thanks to the work of Astra Logue (Olivia Swann) and considering he's the one who usually pulls off unforeseen miracles, things are looking a bit desperate. With two separate crises hitting at the same time and the fearless captain out of the picture, things might just get too much for the Legends to handle.

Here's the synopsis for the upcoming episode: "With Sara still away from the Waverider, the Legends find a new Encore with Ava's new invention, the Prognosticator, and must now try to defeat Genghis Khan in 1990s Hong Kong; Constantine's life is hanging in the balance."

'DC's Legends of Tomorrow' Season 5 airs new episodes every Tuesday at 9/8 c exclusively on The CW.
