Legends of Tomorrow Season 6 Plot: What is it About?

In season 5, Zari’s brother Behrad is back from the dead. Astra is the one who had sent the Encores back to Earth to kill the Legends, but she has a change of heart and commits herself to the Legends’ cause. The Loom of Fate is destroyed twice in the season’s final episode, which eventually causes Sara to regain her eyesight, although she is not clairvoyant anymore. It ends with the Legends celebrating their victory over the Fates and Encores by traveling to 1970s London. While Charlie decides to stay back, Mona, Ray, and Nora choose to leave the Legends. In a shocking turn of events, Sara is abducted by aliens.

As for season 6, extraterrestrial beings will be a significant part of the plot, which includes a “whole motley assortment” of aliens. However, Phil Klemmer revealed that they would find a way to humanize them, which will make the viewers realize that the aliens are just misunderstood and not necessarily the bad guys. The sixth season will see the team trying to rescue Sara and also give us a glimpse of her life in outer space.

Gary’s origin story will get the spotlight in the sixth season, which promises to be “more bizarre” than anyone can imagine. The romance between Constantine and Zari 2.0 will continue, albeit with its own set of challenges. On the other hand, Nate may have given up on the idea of romance. Spooner will get the spotlight as she believes that she has the telepathic abilities to communicate with aliens. There is more to her interesting life that the viewers will discover in the upcoming season.
