DC’s Legends of Tomorrow Season 1 Episode 14 “River of Time” Recap
We open up in Ancient Egypt and Savage is visiting Rip in prison. Savage wonders about this prisoner but Rip stays mum. Savage mentions how the approaching meteor shower will kill him in his cell.
We then see that roles are reversed and Savage is now the prisoner and Rip is visiting him in his cell. The team isn’t happy that Savage is on board. Snart notes that it is dangerous for everyone that Savage is still alive and on the Waverider.
Ray and Stein arrive with their findings from Leviathan. The two note the technology is more advanced than what could be found in 2166. Rip realizes that the reason why Savage has been able to evade them is because he has been time traveling too. Rip confronts Savage with this information and he admits that he knew time travel was possible when Rip and company visited him in 1975. This gave Savage 190 years to figure it out.
Rip decides to take the Waverider to the Vanishing Point and to the Time Masters to prove to them that his mission was one that was needed. So Rip gets Gideon to push the Waverider beyond its limit and the time drive goes offline.
Rip asks Jax to fix the time warp after it goes offline and asks Sara to make sure Savage is safely in his cell. Jax manages to fix the time drive but gets caught in its radiation. We learn that Jax’s is starting to age rapidly and nothing can be done. When Jax got his with the radiation, he flashed back to the moment his mom gave him a watch she was going to give his dad for his birthday.

We do learn that even with Savage on board, Rip’s family’s fate is still the same. When Sara learns about Jax, Rip admits that he could have made the repairs himself but didn’t’ want to risk what happened to Jax happening to him. Sara realizes that Savage was right about Rip.

Ray then goes to Savage and demands he tell him how to unlock Carter’s mind. Savage says he could tell Ray but does he really wants to lose the woman he loves to Carter once he does. Ray believes that Kendra will choose him and Savage taunts Ray about losig another woman to another man. We then flashback to when Ray said goodbye to Felicity before he left to gon on his time travel mission.

Stein goes to visit Savage to find out how he can save Jax. Stein asks about the blood ritual in 1975. Savage says that the ritual involved taking Carter’s blood and since they have him prisoner then he can take it from him. However, Stein gets an idea on how to hlpe Jax without spilling Carter’s blood.
Stein places Jax in the jump ship and knows that if Jax goes back in time to 2016 then this should reverse the radiation. Stein asks Jax to say a proper goodbye to his wife Clarissa.
