Spoilers for 'DC's Legends of Tomorrow' Season 5 Episode 13 'I Am Legends'
'DC's Legends of Tomorrow' Season 5 just dropped a major bomb of an episode that takes the show to a darker place than ever before. We honestly expected Episode 13 'I Am Legends' to be another comedic story but while it did have its humorous moments, the episode went full-on 'Justice League Dark: Apokolips War' with its ending.
By the end of the episode, all the Legends except for Charlie (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) have died, which nobody saw coming. Fans are already flocking to the episode's discussion page on Reddit to talk about that killer ending and what it might mean for the rest of the season.
"Pretty good episode on the whole! Intense how they basically ended on everyone dying," one fan wrote. "And of course, Charlie is going along with the Fates in order to resurrect the team and then put them on TV shows. Let’s see what happens! We’re getting Doomworld 2.0!"
"This episode ended really dark," another fan wrote. "Everyone died except Charlie, up to her to save the day. Which makes sense given the storyline."
To make things even more heartbreaking, fans were extremely touched by Ava Sharpe (Jes Macallan) choosing to die alongside her girlfriend, Sara Lance/White Canary (Caity Lotz), instead of saving herself. For all the people who've been against Avalance, here's your proof of why they belong together.
"Sara dying, again, was bad enough, but Ava deciding either they would live together or die together hurt like hell," one fan wrote.
"Between this episode and the opening of Stargirl we just watched a lot of DC heroes die," another fan commented.
"I certainly didn’t expect everyone except Charlie to die this episode," yet another fan said. "Especially since the last episode ended with Beer Pong against Dionysus. Looks like Ray and Nora got out just in time. But yeah, Season 5 is a much better improvement over Season 4 (it’s the Arrow treatment). Perfect level of dark and comedic. I’m really glad that they managed to film the full season and we won’t get an impromptu finale like the other shows."
How will the team find their way back to the land of the living? And what other timeline changes are in store for the Arrowverse once they do make their return? We'll just have to wait and see.
'DC's Legends of Tomorrow' Season 5 airs on Tuesdays at 9 pm ET on The CW.
