Legends of Tomorrow Says Goodbye to Brandon Routh in "Romeo v. Juliet: Dawn of Justness" Synopsis

02/27/2020 09:00 pm EST

The CW has released the official synopsis for "Romeo v. Juliet: Dawn of Justness," the March 17 episode of DC's Legends of Tomorrow in which it seems the crew of the Waverider (and heartbroken fans everywhere) will say goodbye to Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) and Nora Darhk (Courtney Ford). In the episode, the Legends find themselves face to face with William Shakesepeare (and, given the title, it seems likely that the Legends will have a role in helping to nudge "Romeo & Juliet" along, similar to the impact they had on Star Wars back in season two). And the villain from "Raiders of the Lost Art" (the George Lucas episode), Damien Darhk, has cast a shadow so long that three seasons later, his daughter will be key in Ray's departure from the show.

While the synopsis remains silent on why the pair make a decision that "leaves the team shocked," anybody who watched this week's episode of Legends likely know that Ray has decided to propose to Nora. That means he is likely leaving the Waverider so that they can have the closest thing to a happily-ever-after that a Fairy Godmother who spends her days dealing with entitled brats who want ponies can get.

All the while, the team continues their search (again, established in this week's episode) for pieces of the Loom of Fate, which will make them a target for the Fates but also potentially get John and Charlie out of some serious trouble they've gotten themselves into over the years.

You can check the synopsis out below.
