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