Legends of Tomorrow Recap ‘Camelot/3000’
The Legends head to the future to find the next piece of the Spear, but Rip got their first. Its protector was Dr. Mid-Nite and he was killed in order to get the information. Amaya is upset that he is dead and another piece has fallen into the Legion’s hands. She takes this out on Sara, saying that she shouldn’t have let Rip go. Back on the Waverider, they receive information that there is another piece in medieval England. The Legends are then off to Camelot where they meet Guinevere, King Arthur, and Merlin.
But it turns out Merlin is Stargirl. She tells the Legends that the final mission of the JSA was to locate the Spear of Destiny. Once they found it, the Time Master that aided them split the Spear into pieces, then sent each member to a different point in time where they would keep it safe. The Time Master? Rip. Amaya asks Stargirl for the piece, but she refuses to hand it over, saying that it is her duty to protect it.
Meanwhile, Arthur is hunting a black knight that is actually Damien. Damien gets the upper hand on the king, and, courtesy of Dr. Mid-Nite’s future technology, uses mind-control in order to find the Spear. This leads him and Rip to Camelot where they find the Legends. Damien demands the piece of the Spear, saying that he will kill Arthur if they don’t. Stargirl refuses. The Legends put up a fight, which results in Sir Galahad being killed. Damien and Rip tell them that if they don’t give up the piece, then they will return with an army and destroy Camelot.
Sara convinces Guinevere to fight back. As she masses an army, Amaya searches for the Spear. She finds it at the tip of Excalibur (which she pulled from the stone). With that in hand, Sara orders the Legends to retreat. But Ray doesn’t obey. He refuses to leave all of Camelot behind to die. On the Waverider, Mick is going to go back and stand with Ray, but Sara orders him to stay. They have to get the Spear away from the Legion. That is their first priority. A fight almost breaks out between them, but Amaya steps in, telling Sara that sometimes, you have to follow your heart instead of protocol. The Legends rush off to battle.
Stein, Mick, and Jax work on reverse-engineering the mind-control technology while the others fight Damien and Rip’s army. They manage to hack into the frequency and turn off the device. Rip is seriously during the battle, and Damien abandons him. Sara takes Rip and puts him in the cell on the Waverider.
The Legends have won the day, but they have forgotten that Gideon can still be accessed by Rip. The final scene is Rip calling to Gideon. I can only imagine that next episode he is going to cause some major damage.
We have learned that the JSA are the protectors of the Spear along with Rip. Stargirl and Dr. Mid-Nite’s pieces have been retrieved, so that just leaves Obsidian and Commander Steel. I like that the show decided to weave the JSA back into the picture and I am interested to see what develops on Amaya’s part since they are members of her old team. Before they left, Stargirl told Amaya that she worked well with the Legends. Maybe, when this is all over, she’ll decide to stick around.
Next week’s episode is entitled ‘Land of the Lost.’
