The Spear of Destiny has been secreted away in the Year 3000 and in King Arthur’s Court. Dr. Midnight and Star Girl return to Legends as safekeepers of the Spear.
In an unlucky turn of events, Rip Hunter, now turned evil and working with the Legion of Doom, originally hid all four pieces of the Spear of Destiny. He travels to the year 3000 where Dr. Midnight is living with a piece of the Spear hidden inside his own body. After Rip cuts it out of him and borrows some nifty mind control technology, he travels to Camelot to find the third piece of the Spear.
Aboard the Waverider, Gideon has tracked down the piece of the Spear in 3000 using Lily’s algorithm. Just as our team is about to lock onto its location, it falls off the radar. The Legends investigate the last known location of the Spear and discover Dr. Midnight’s body. He’s left a bloody clue on the floor, naming his killer as Rip Hunter. Saddened by her friend’s death. Amaya lashes out at Sara, accusing her of letting Rip go because he was her former captain and friend.
Gideon tracks another piece of the Spear to the island of Britannia in 542 AD. Dressed in their finest Renaissance gear, the Legends arrive and are confronted by none other than Guinevere and the Knights of the Round Table. Ray recognizes King Arthur’s crest on the shield and requests to be escorted to Camelot. It turns out Star Girl has adopted the identity of Merlin the wizard and turned the fictional Camelot into a reality.
Star Girl explains to the Legends, and Amaya, what really happened to the JSA in 1956. Their final mission to Leipzig was in fact to recover the Spear of Destiny and led by none other than the Time Master, Rip Hunter. The Legends are enjoying the hospitality of the Queen when we see King Arthur in the woods, confronting the Black Knight. He reveals himself to be Damien Dahrk and Rip Hunter steps from the shadows with the mind control technology.
Pretending Arthur has captured the Black Knight, Rip telepathically leads Arthur into his own court and then reveals he has control over him. Damien and Rip deliver the ultimatum to Star Girl and leave with Arthur. Amaya tries to convince Star Girl to turn over the Spear for safe keeping, but Star Girl insists the Spear is safe. Amaya uses the Longinus medallion to track down the Spear any way and pulls the Spear from the Stone. Star Girl relents, admits her heart is in Camelot, and gives Amaya the Spear for safe keeping after all.
Ray has decided to join the battle for Camelot, and despite Nate’s insistence that he will die trying, Ray pushes his luck in the battle for Camelot. Nate, Amaya and Sara join Ray in the fight against an army being controlled by Rip Hunter while Jax, Stein and Rory attempt to hack the technology and save the day. In the end, Mick taps into the darkness in his head to fry the devices controlling King Arthur’s army. Damien Darhk escapes after battling with Ray and his saber of light (trademark issues) and our team captures Rip Hunter.
In the final scene aboard the Waverider, Rip calls out to Gideon who answers, “I’m here, Captain.”
