“Legends” Season 1 Episode 8 “Iconoclast” will air on Wednesday, Oct. 1, 2014 at 9:00 p.m. on TNT. Martin is still assuming the role of his legend Sebastian Egan in order to track the assassins of the Saudi prince. Before we get to the details of this episode, let’s do a quick look about what happened in the last.
Martin Odum (Sean Bean) returned to field work in “Quicksand” (air date: Sept. 24, 2014), and was tasked to find the perpetrators and prevent the assassination plot against Prince Abdullah, the prince of Saudi Arabia. He’s also working alongside Agent Rice (Morris Chestnut) now, whom the Deep Cover Operations (DCO) has absorbed. The two were lead to Hani Jibril, a feminist and activist.
In order to find out if Jibril was connected to the assassination plot, Odum then pretended he’s Sebastian Egan, a journalist, whom Jibril has heard about. Rice pretended to be Egan’s camera man. Jibril disclosed that she had plans for the prince once he arrived and that he would like them both to cover this.
The DCO has arrested a man in connection to the assassination plot, who turned out to be working for the Saudi embassy. He said that they have been keeping a close eye on Jibril because, as an activist, she was a threat to the prince.
At the event, Jibril and her group were actively protesting on the grounds as the prince arrived, and later, when the prince left, breaking protocol, Jibril and him were face to face, before Odum (as Egan) sensed that something wrong was about to go down. Odum was able to keep Jibril unharmed, but the prince died in the bomb attack.
Whether or not Jibril was just a passionate activist or she did have a connection to the assassination, it’s still unclear for Odum and the DCO. Because the bomb was set off by a drone, they were also not sure where to find the perpetrators just yet.
