In our season one finale, Rip leaves the remaining members of the team back in 2016 to continue hunting for Savage alone. After attempting to move on with their lives, each member of the team returns to the spot where the Waverider left them, intent on signaling it to come back. Rip returns and the team is reunited.
Sara confronts Rip and he admits he knew Laurel would die, explaining they cannot go back to save her without sentencing her entire family to die. When trying to come-up with a plan, a helmet in Rip's office relocates itself and the team discovers a note from Kendra. Savage, Kendra and Carter are in France, 1944.
We learn Savage's end game, and why Kendra and Carter are still alive: he needs their blood to activate the Thanagarian technology in the meteorites to erase all of time and plunge the world back to 1700 BC. While Firestorm attempts to harness transmutation, Dr. Stein realizes that Savage is going to detonate the meteorites in three different time periods. After doing complicated math, which, trust us, is always right, he discovers the three time periods where Savage is headed.
The team hatches a plan to kill Savage in three different time periods after exposure to the meteorite radiation renders him mortal. Surprise! After an entire season of trying to kill Savage, the plan finally works and Savage is defeated. Unfortunately, the team fails to diffuse the third meteorite and Rip decides to sacrifice himself to save the team.
After being "reunited" with his family and gaining a sense a peace, Rip wakes to Gideon explaining that she isn't ready to die. He decides he isn't either and sends the meteor into the sun while time jumping back to 2021 to pick-up the team. He proposes they should protect the timeline, as a team, and sends them all back to 2016 to make their decisions, except for Mick. Mr. Rory returns to 2013 so he can say goodbye to his partner in crime and friend, Leonard Snart.
Just as the team come to the decision that they will rejoin with Rip, they are interrupted by... another Waverider? No one knows from when, or why, it has returned, and Rex Tyler steps off the ship to keep them from leaving on their new mission. He proclaims he is a part of the Justice Society of America and Mick Rory sent him back to this point to stop them from getting on the Waverider and head to their deaths.
