Two episodes into Legends of Tomorrow Season 5 and a key member of the Waverider is still missing. The Legends’ resident hacktivist Zari Tomaz (Tala Ashe) disappeared after changing the timeline during Season 4’s finale. Zari has been on a crusade to alter her family’s fate since being introduced in Season 3. Along the way she found a romantic partner in the form of historian Nate Heywood (Nick Zano). In the new timeline Zari has been replaced on the Legends by Behrad Tarazi (Shayan Sobhian), who now wields the air totem. Fortunately for Zari the timeline changes were unable to completely erase Nate’s feelings.
In an interview conducted with Entertainment Weekly, Legends of Tomorrow co-showrunner Phil Klemmer shared some spoilery details about Zari’s fate in the new timeline. “Zari 2.0, for the last two years, has been running her giant media empire and personal brand like a Kardashian, while her brother’s been running around secretly saving the world.”
Fortunately fans of the Nate and Zari pairing (dubbed Nari online) will not have much longer to wait before the pair are reunited. The Entertainment Weekly interview revealed that Zari rejoins the team on-board the Waverider by episode four. Fans should not expect Nari to have an uncomplicated reunion. Legends of Tomorrow has a penchant for making couples suffer, especially Nate given his romantic track record.
Excited about the possibility of Nate and Zari reuniting, share your thoughts below in the comments.
