One spear to rule them all, one spear to find them, one spear to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.

Synopsis

Rip Hunter reveals the Legion of Doom has been hiding out of time at the Vanishing Point. The Legends return, seeking the final two pieces of the Spear. On reconnaissance duty, the Atom keeps an eye on Thawne while staying out of sight this time. Jax and Rip find pieces of the Spear hidden in an obelisk that Firestorm quickly transmutes into jelly beans (yum!). Rory revisits the spot where Snart sacrificed himself to save the team and Sara urges him to return to the ship before they are caught. Thawne is notified that the vault holding the Spear has been compromised, but he is too late. The Waverider vanishes before his eyes as he speeds out of his lair.

The Legends lay the pieces of the Spear in close proximity and it heals itself into one whole Spear before their eyes. In an attempt to destroy it, Mick lights up the Spear with his heat gun, but no damage is done. Instead, a fiery writing appears on the Spear. Nate translates the message: born of blood, undone by blood. The Legends decide the only course of action is to destroy the Ring, er, Spear, by obtaining the blood of Christ. According to legend, it’s buried in the north of France and the team decide to travel to the one point in time they can go to and consult with the man who wrote an account of the legend: J.R.R. Tolkien.

The historical record shows J.R.R. Tolkien was stationed in the north of France during World War I and contracted trench fever. He was subsequently discharged. Posing as British army medical personnel, Rip and Nate “kidnap” Tolkien and cure his fever so he may assist them in finding the blood of Christ. While searching for Tolkien, Rory is confronted by Leonard Snart, and divulges their entire plan because he thinks he is hallucinating. Unfortunately, Snart has been recruited from the past to join the Legion of Doom.

Back on the Waverider, Rory hears the Spear calling to him, willing him to change his destiny. Stein confronts Rory, warning to stay away from the Spear and Rory gets in his face, telling him about Snart. Stein assures him he is seeing things and he heads out with the Backstreet Boys to a chapel in Amiens. After discovering the resting place of Sir Gawain and a map to the blood of Christ, the Legion of Doom arrives on the scene and confronts our team. Rory stands by the Legends and helps them escape back to the Waverider.

Amaya admits to Rory that she can also hear the Spear calling to her. Sara calls a team meeting and a plan is formed for the Fellowship of the Spear. Amaya channels her inner Boromir, insisting they can use the powerful artifact to their advantage, but the Fellowship out votes her and decide to travel to No Man’s Land/Mordor to retrieve the blood of Christ and destroy the Spear/Ring.

The Legends head into the Battle of the Somme and broker a cease fire long enough to remain in one piece and retrieve the blood. Sara hands the Spear of Destiny to Mick and uncovers the vial. The Legion of Doom arrives and Mick, feeling the Legends have never truly trusted him, joins the Legion and delivers the Spear. Eobard Thawne speeds in and carries the Legion members, and Mick, back to the Vanishing Point. The ceasefire has ended and our team fights their way back to the Waverider.

Merlin joins the Legion with the Word of God to activate the Spear and change the course of destiny.

Don’t play with fire, Mick.

Eobard Thawne takes on Jack Swigert’s identity and hitches a ride to the moon on the Apollo 13 mission. The Legends track down Commander Steel to convince him to turn over his piece of the Spear for safekeeping.

Synopsis

Rip Hunter leaves Henry Heywood in 1965 with the final piece of the Spear of Destiny. He disappears into the crowd as Rip Hunter leads the Legends to the exact spot where he left him, but Commander Steel has already disappeared. The Legends return to the ship and deduce that Henry Heywood must be working for NASA. Sara commands the team to infiltrate NASA and locate Henry.

Rip and Ray find Henry preparing to brief the press on the mission. As Rip approaches Henry and holds out his hand, Henry punches Rip in the face. He takes proper press credentials pretty seriously! Sara, Nate and Amaya join Ray and Henry who has locked Rip in a room. They explain why they have come for him in 1970 and he assures them his piece of the Spear is safe because it is not any where on Earth. He’s hidden it inside the flag Neil Armstrong planted on the moon.

As soon as the Odyssey goes radio silent, Eobard Thawne resumes his own identity after knocking out the other astronauts. He heads into the lunar module just as miniaturized Ray enters the command module and spots him. Ray tries to stow away with him, but Thawne sees him and an epic space fight ensues. Thanks to zero gravity, Thawne cannot use his superspeed and both are on an equal playing field. Ray shoots Thawne with his phaser and disengages the lunar module. It’s now up to Ray to land the lunar module on the moon.

Back on Earth, Jax, Stein and Rory are posing as British controllers. Sara radios down to let them know Ray is about to crash land on the moon and Stein quickly comes-up with a plan to distract the room of flight controllers while Jax cuts the feed. Daylight come and me won go home! Ray more or less lands safely on the moon without enough fuel to launch the LEM back into space. While he retrieves the piece of the Spear, the rest of the Legends onboard the Waverider rescue the command module which is headed straight for an asteroid field. Rip and Sara argue about the best course of action and she ultimately uses the Waverider to shield the command module from the asteroids, causing irreparable damage to the ship. All nonessential systems are shut down, including Gideon.

Sara gives Ray the bad news and lets him know he will have to find a way off the moon on his own. With the damage to the Waverider, she won’t be able to pick him up as planned. Thawne convinces Ray that he needs his help and they form a temporary alliance to reroute the dwarf star energy from Ray’s suit to fuel the LEM and reconnect with the command module. On Sara’s mark, they launch the LEM and head straight for the command module, which Sara maneuvers in place with the tractor beam. Eobard is escorted immediately to the brig.

With the Odyssey intact on the way home, our team celebrates. Dr. Stein, however, has done the math and realizes it will be next to impossible for the Legends to reenter the Earth’s atmosphere. Luckily, their prisoner is an expert in astronavigation and already knows the angle at which the Waverider needs to reenter the Earth’s atmosphere to remain intact. Unfortunately, they are one degree off the right angle and the only way to correct is to open the cargo bay, by hand. First Rip, then Sara, volunteer, but Henry has already left. Rip coaches him through opening the door as Nate runs to talk him out of it. His son is waiting in mission control. Henry tells Nate to give Hank a message and opens the cargo door. The Waverider is now on course to safely enter the Earth’s atmosphere.

As soon as the Legends land, Eobard phases through the glass and Ray keeps him talking just long enough for his Black Flash alarm to go off. Thawne speeds off with no time to look for the other pieces of the Spear.

In the final scene, we see Amaya ask Gideon about her future, but you aren’t supposed to know what your future holds…

The Waverider falls through the time stream and lands in the Cretaceous Period after evil Rip Hunter utters the override command and forces Gideon to obey him once again.

Spaniel. Broad. Tricycle.

Synopsis

The Legends have deduced who has the final piece of the Spear but not when he might be hidden. Gideon searches for the piece using the medallion but cannot process data fast enough to find the location before Rip uses her to escape from the brig. He takes the medallion, initiates the Spectrum protocol and attempts to make it to the jump ship and escape from the Waverider. The Legends confront him and he destroys the medallion. Now, only Rip knows when Commander Steel is with the final piece.

Mick knocks Rip unconscious while Jax reboots the ship, sending them into a freefall through time. Gideon comes back online and jumps to the oldest location in her logs, which happens to be the same time period where Ray was stranded in the premiere of this season. Unfortunately, a vital piece of the ship has been lost during the rough landing. Ray sets out to recover it from his old stomping grounds with Nate and Amaya.

Meanwhile on the Waverider, Mick explains to Sara the Time Masters used a process called coggy something, ah yes, Cognitive Intrusion. It is a barbaric Matrix-style process that let’s Sara and Jax enter the subconscious mind of Rip Hunter. While Martin and Mick supervise, Sara and Jax take a trip down the rabbit hole to change Rip back to his old self. As soon as they arrive, they realize they are still on the Waverider in Rip’s mind with some key changes.

Rip’s memory of Vandal Savage’s soldiers march past them as they begin to search for Rip. Searching for weapons to defend themselves, Sara encounters her evil doppelganger. After defeating herself, Sara and Jax continue to search for Rip and come face to face with evil versions of Sara, Firestorm, Ray and Rory (well, Rory is pretty much the same, but still). Jax takes off with Firestorm in pursuit, but Sara is knocked out by evil Ray and tossed in the brig. Surprisingly, Rip is cowering in the corner, terrified of everything around him and forgetting who he really is. After giving Firestorm the slip, Jax finds Gideon in human form, presumably as Rip has always imagined her. They find Sara and Rip and help them escape.

Gideon explains that only Rip can defeat the evil version of the Legends keeping him imprisoned in his own mind. Sara and Jax wake-up while Rip completes the final obstacle in his mind: leaving a human Gideon behind. In a tender moment, Rip kisses Gideon and wakes up from his trance, finally restored to his former self. He joins the Legends on the bridge as one by one, they welcome him back to the team.

In the final scene, we learn where the final piece of the Spear is hidden. Eobard Thawne is posing as a doctor for the space program in 1970 and is about to “examine” astronaut Jack Swigert, a last minute addition to the Apollo 13 team.

Houston, we have a problem.
