""Is this 2016? Is this May, 2016?"
"You're right were you said you'd be. Do not get on that ship. If you do, you're all dead."
"Says who?"
"Says you, Mr. Rory. You sent me"
"I'm sorry, who exactly are you?"
"My name is Rex Tyler. I'm a member of the Justice Society of America."
—Rex, Jax, Mick and Rip
"Legendary" is the sixteenth and final episode of the first season of DC's Legends of Tomorrow, and the sixteenth episode overall. It aired on May 19, 2016.


After the numerous sacrifices the team has made since the beginning of this ride, Rip decides that it's time they each decide their own destiny and returns them to Central City a few months after they first left. Returned to their normal lives, each team member must individually decide if they are willing to sacrifice everything in order to save the world. Meanwhile, Sara visits with her father who delivers some heartbreaking news about Laurel.[1]


  • Despite the fact he is no longer Carter Hall, the Legends constantly refer to Scythian Torvil as his past life.
  • Rip explains that before Sara joined the Legends, she was destined to be killed with Laurel and her father. However, when she was plucked out of the present, history changed.
  • This episode marks Sara's last on-screen meeting with Quentin before his death in "Life Sentence".
  • Though the meteor weakened his immortality three times over, it appears wounds Savage suffers in other eras do not catch up to his future selves. (Mick burned the 1950s Savage, while Sara broke the 1980s Savage's neck.)
  • This is the last episode of Wentworth Miller as a series regular as he is later downgraded to recurring for the rest of the series.


Preparation ran from March 10 until March 18, 2016. Shooting ran from March 21 until April 1, 2016.[2]
