With the time aberrations weakening the forces holding Mallus (John Noble) at bay, the Legends stand ever-vigilant against time quakes and other disruptions which could turn Guitar Hero into another game entirely and, most troubling, change Nate’s (Nick Zano) trademark hair style.
The episode sees the team heading to 1950s Memphis, where the Darhks use their magic to bewitch Elvis Presley’s rising star into a genuine panic; as opposed to the phony moral panic his hip-swaying caused in out timeline. And as seen in the clip above, the city becomes a ghost town and the Presley style of rock ‘n’ roll never leaves the south. Well, that’s presuming the Darhks take out all of the Sun Records artists and acts like Chuck Berry as part of their plan. To say nothing of the black blues performers who would eventually inspire a lot of rock bands in the United Kingdom.
Or, maybe, the Darhk’s never watched The History of Rock ‘n’ Roll on VH1 like I did and assumed Elvis was the lynch-pin to an entire wave of music. Considering Legends, they’ll probably lampshade it and keep it simple.
