The team trace a new Anachronism to the jungles of Vietnam. Rory and Nate bump into someone from Rory's past.
Did You Know?
Nate likens his and Mick's situation initially to Predator (1987), and later to Apocalypse Now (1979). Nate introduces Mick earlier under the pseudonym Officer Schwarzenegger, referencing the former film's star, Arnold Schwarzenegger. Nate refers to Mick going "full Kurtz", referencing the antagonist of the latter film, Colonel Walter Kurtz. In the film, Kurtz returns to Vietnam in 1966 with the Green Berets (as Mick Rory does in this episode), using barbaric methods to defeat the enemy and send fear, murdering a number of innocent people.

When the Legends get to '67 Vietnam, Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Tombstone Shadow" opens the scene. While the choice is a refreshing change from the usual pick for a CCR 'Nam song, not only did it come out in '69 but CCR's first album was released in '68. See more
I really wish I had better news about Sara, but she's still in a coma thanks to Damien Darhk's daughter laying her out.
Well, in the meantime, we could do what we do best and fix a few anachronisms.
How about you just drop me off on an island full of beautiful women like Zari did with that Helen chick.
Rory, you weren't supposed to say anything.
Wait, you didn't take Helen back to Troy where she belongs?
That's what the Time Bureau does. But we... we do something different.
No, we do it ...
