Legends of Tomorrow is doing an episode in the style of Groundhog’s Day with Zari (Tala Ashe) as the central character. Zari will be trapped in a time loop and only Gideon (Amy Pemberton) will be able to help her. For only the second time in the series, fans will get to see Gideon, the ship’s AI, in the flesh. Gideon took human form in the season 2 episode “Land of the Lost” when she kissed Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) while inside his mind.

The concept of a time loop was made popular by the film Groundhog’s Day, which saw Bill Murray’s character forced to relive the same day over and over again. The plot device has since been used in single episodes of numerous science fiction TV shows including Star Trek: The Next Generation, Supernatural, X-Files, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, 12 Monkeys, and several others. Time loop episodes generally revolve around one character who constantly relives the events of a single day until they’re finally able to come up with a solution to a particular problem.
