Former time master Rip Hunter returns back to Earth in 2016 to gather 6 heroes (Ray Palmer, Sara Lance, Jefferson Jackson & Dr. Stein, Kendra Saunders & Carter Hall) and 2 villains (Mick Rory and Leonard Snart) and get them working together to prevent the development of Vandal Savage - the one set to destroy the Earth in the future. Then they go back in time in 1975 to approach the person who might be able to locate Vandal Savage i.e. historian Dr. Boardman. He's the one who sheds some light into the history of Vandal, Kendra and Carter. Meanwhile, a temporary bounty hunter attacks the ship with a laser gun and leads to the team finding out the truth about why they were chosen in the first place. Written by

Just before the time jump to 1975, the sound of the TARDIS can be heard just before the Waverider jumps. See more
At the beginning of the episode, when Rip assembles the team on the rooftop, Carter and Kendra say they have reincarnated many times in previous lifetimes. Sara replies to it by saying she has done that before. This is wrong. Sara went through resurrection, which is considerably different from reincarnation. See more
That's the worst that Savage can throw at us? We got this thing nailed down.
Why did you say that?
