Legends of Tomorrow: Who betrayed the team?
Warning: This story contains major spoilers from Tuesday’s episode of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. Read at your own risk!
The Legion of Doom was successful in its evil plan to obtain the Spear of Destiny during Tuesday’s episode of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow — and it’s all thanks to Mick Rory.
When the Legends set out to destroy the Spear in a Lord of the Rings-esque send-up — complete with J.R.R. Tolkien! — their old teammate Leonard Snart (Wentworth Miller) returned. However, Mick (Dominic Purcell) believes he’s just having another hallucination and unwittingly reveals the Legends’ plans to the bad guys.
See, this isn’t the heroic, willing-to-sacrifice-himself version of Snart that fans remember. The Legion plucked an earlier, still-evil Captain Cold out of the timeline for this express purpose. Thus, Mick reverted to his villainous ways, initially betraying the team inadvertently, but ultimately turning the Spear over to the Legion.
With the Spear in hand, the Legion is now able to rewrite reality — and boy will they! The penultimate hour is aptly titled “Doomsworld,” and the Legion has created a nefarious new world in which the heroes suffer their own personal punishments. So thanks, Mick!

“What a selfish d—,” Caity Lotz tells EW with a laugh. “Sara’s pissed. She’s super pissed. It’s not just turning his back on us and betraying us, it’s like every single person, their life is now messed up. She’s very upset with him, very disappointed and surprised. She trusted him.”
She’s not the only one who’s feeling betrayed, either. “He gets punched, I think, by no less than three different people in the course of this episode,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim teases of “Doomsworld.”
“I think he feels betrayed,” Brandon Routh adds of Ray. “But I think he feels bad because there’s a conversation that happens in [this] episode where we showed our lack of trust in him still after all this journey that he’s made, and I think that pushes him over the edge. I would say, if anything, Ray would probably feel guilty for not having spoken up and been more vocal and saying, ‘Hey, I trust you.'”
Even though the team is seething, there’s still one person in Mick’s corner. “Amaya takes it, if anything, hardest out of the team because she cares about him on a personal level,” Maisie Richardson-Sellers says. “Equally, she’s the most determined that there is still some good in him. Everyone else accepts it like, ‘Oh, well it’s Rory, and that’s what Rory does.'”
The question remains whether Mick can redeem himself once the Legends are trapped within Doomsworld. Stay tuned for more scoop on the Back to the Future 2-esque hour, which EW was on set for. DC’s Legends of Tomorrow airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
