'Legends of Tomorrow' season 2 plot news, spoilers: Next episode to pay homage to 'Lord of the Rings'


The final piece of the Spear of Destiny was finally discovered in the hit series “Legends of Tomorrow.” But what would be Time Master Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) and his team of Legends’ next plan?

In the latest episode, the Legends went back as far as 1965 to track Commander Steel (Matthew MacCaull), also known as Henry Heywood, Sr., who had the last piece of the celestial weapon.

Sara/White Canary (Caity Lotz) found him in 1970 NASA, wherein the Apollo 13 mission was in development, and Henry was the flight director. After further interrogation, the Commander confessed that he hid the last piece under the flag left by Apollo 11 on the moon.

The “Moonshot” episode showed the Legends flying into space and preventing Eobard Thawne/Reverse-Flash (Matt Letscher) and his Legion of Doom to get a hold of the weapon.

Now, that the Legends have recovered the Spear, are they planning to use it against Reverse-Flash? Will they ever control its powers?

Maisie Richardson-Sellers, who plays Amaya Jiwe/Vixen, stated that Rip doesn’t think that anyone can handle the power of the weapon, hence, he wanted to destroy it in the first place.

“Whoever gets it now has the question of, are we going to use it to change reality even if it’s the one thing we shouldn’t do?” said Richardson-Sellers to Entertainment Weekly.

It looks like the Legends in the upcoming episode of the superhero series is heading to World War I. Titled “Fellowship of the Spear,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim stated that they are planning to do a “‘Lord of the Rings’ homage in the trenches of World War I.” The plot includes the appearance of the young J. R. R. Tolkien, the author of the epic trilogy novels. “Stitchers” star Jack Turner will portray Tolkien’s character.

“When we were talking about doing an episode about destroying the Spear of Destiny, destroying this magical MacGuffin of unlimited power, it seemed to be a perfect parallel with Tolkien and our World War I Middle Earth send up,” Guggenheim explained.

The second season of “Legends of Tomorrow” will return on March 21 on The CW.
