Astra Logue (Olivia Swann) has been on one hell of a character arc in 'DC's Legends of Tomorrow' Season 5. From being an evil queen of Hell to finding her place among the Legends, she's been through a lot but now it seems all of that may have been for nothing.

Episode 13 'I Am Legends' will see the team get stuck in John Constantine's (Matt Ryan) house during a zombie apocalypse, wasting away their hard-won 24-hour immortality on the living dead instead of using the Loom of Fate. And chances are, it's all Astra's fault.

At the end of Episode 12 'Freaks and Greeks', Astra was approached by Lachesis (Sarah Strange), who asked her to betray the team. Even though Astra did say that she wanted nothing to do with the Fates, it turns out she owes a favor to Lachesis so she has no choice but to grant her request. 

Even though it seems Astra may have betrayed the team, it does seem as if she's trying to make sure they don't get hurt. Since all of them except Zari Tarazi (Tala Ashe) are immortal right now, they're not in any danger from the zombies and it's just a matter of riding it out until they can come up with an exit strategy.

Coming from Astra, that's mercy. Here's the official synopsis for 'I Am Legends': "STICKING TOGETHER – After drinking from the Chalice, the Legends have immortality for 24 hours, which gives them time to get to the Waverider and use the Loom of Fate."

"However, they quickly discover that the sisters have stolen the Waverider and they are stuck at Constantine’s (Matt Ryan) house in the middle of nowhere in London during a Zombie Apocalypse."

"Meanwhile, Gary (guest star Adam Tsekham) is left on the ship and once he discovers what is going on, he takes something important to the sisters. Caity Lotz, Dominic Purcell, Nick Zano, Maisie Richardson-Sellers, Jes Macallan, Tala Ashe, and Olivia Swann also star."

Andrew Kasch directed the episode written by Keah Poulliot and Emily Cheever. 'DC's Legends of Tomorrow' airs new episodes Tuesdays at 9 pm ET on The CW.
