'DC's Legends of Tomorrow': These beloved characters could leave the Waverider by the end of Season 5
Depending on who you ask, 'Legends' is either the most experimental show within the Arrowverse or the most random
'DC's Legends of Tomorrow' Season 5 recently said goodbye to Brandon Routh's Ray Palmer / Atom and Courtney Ford's Nora Darhk, two of the most popular characters featured on The CW show. While their exit has been pretty heartbreaking, they may not be the only ones to leave 'Legends' by the end of this season.
Depending on who you ask, 'Legends' is either the most experimental show within the Arrowverse or the most random. While both arguments have merit, we have to admit 'Legends' has been a bit of a revolving door for characters from across the Arrowverse.
Mona Wu (Ramona Young), for example, has had a strictly recurring role this season and it seems like only a matter of time before she leaves the Waverider and doesn't come back. Her exit could be accelerated by whatever decision Mick Rory / Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell) takes by the end of the season.
While Rory is a beloved part of the show, he has hit a bit of a crossroads recently with the reveal that he has a daughter. At some point, he's going to have to choose between staying with the team or leaving to be a father, something he's very uncomfortable doing but perhaps that is the direction the character ought to take in order to grow. Besides, we can't deny that a 'Suicide Squad'-esque show uniting Rory, Gravedigger (Wayne Brady) and other villains, former and current, would be a really fun watch.
Two other characters who could step off the Waverider in the future are John Constantine (Matt Ryan) and Charlie (Maisie Richardson-Sellers). Again, they're both favorites but their stories could perhaps be told better in a separate show altogether.
The last time Constantine got his own show, it wasn't exactly a stellar success. But that said, he's a character with an eternal fanbase and perhaps The CW could do justice to the character in a way NBC couldn't if they were to give him a solo series.
While these are all possibilities, the one character who we think could very well leave the team by the end is none other than the captain of the Waverider, Sara Lance / White Canary (Caity Lotz). Being on 'Legends' has more or less erased most of the character's dark past but we do so very much enjoy seeing Caity Lotz as the badass assassin and with the 'Green Arrow and the Canaries' show seeming like a sure bet for the future of the Arrowverse, perhaps she could be relocated there.
After all, Sara was the original Canary in the Arrowverse and it would make sense for her to be part of the show. Hanging out with her sister Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy) would be something Sara might enjoy and we do think Mia Smoak (Katherine McNamara), the future Green Arrow, could use all the help she can get learning to be a hero.
If Sara does leave the Waverider, we do want her girlfriend Ava Sharpe (Jes Macallan) to go with her. We're willing to sacrifice a lot of things we love for the good of the characters but there's no way we're letting our favorite ship #Avalance sink without a fight.
Do you think these characters might exit 'Legends of Tomorrow'? Is there anyone you think should join or leave the show? Let us know in the comments.
