Legends of Tomorrow Fellowship of the Spear Review

The CW‘s Legends of Tomorrow; Season 2, Episode 15: Fellowship of the Spear continues to borrow from the infinite library of literary fandom.

Naturally, the Spear of Destiny has become a totem for the popular The One Ring from Lord of the Rings. In the beginning of the episode, the Legends pull their smartest heist to date when they’re able to steal back the remaining pieces of the spear from the Legion of Doom.

Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) informs the Legends that now that the pieces of returned to each other the Spear will be calling out of them. In an attempt to convince them to use it for their own purposes. Ironically, they are all standing around in a circle, which is probably a throwback to The Council of Elrond.

Unfortunately, this act is one and done as everything seems to fall apart from that moment on.

While the notion of The Spear being The Ring is pretty obvious the bigger theme of fellowship comes through in the character of Mick Rory (Dominic Purcell). For some time now, Mick has been seeing his old partner Leonard Snart (Wentworth Miller). Being as the Legends spend a lot of time weaving around time, seeing a dead friend here and there wasn’t that shocking.

But then we come to see that Snart isn’t just a walking memory. He’s a real living breathing person, pulled from the timeline by the Legion of Doom.

Even though Snart isn’t the Snart that we’ve all come to know and love he knows exactly how to push Mick’s buttons.

Ever since Snart died Mick has been existing within the Legends as his own entity. He tried to make Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) a partner. That didn’t last very long. Despite what the Legends may feel about Mick, he’s a very loyal guy. With the exception that he expects those he entrusts with that or be loyal in return.

Unfortunately, the Legends have never truly treated Mick as an equal member of the Legends. He’s been the muscle when things go south, but never quite fully trusted as an intricate member of the group.

To Mick’s credit, you can’t say he didn’t put in any effort. Snart died in the previous season and has continued to be a clutch team player in all situations.

The whole point of being a Legend, specifically for Mick, is that he was given a bigger purpose. In the Legends, Mick thought he could be seen as something besides a criminal. Unfortunately for the Legends, they let their prejudices cloud what good Mick has done for them. They are focused on his unfortunate error of revealing their plans to the Legion of Doom. This proves to Mick what Snart has been hinting at for some time now. The Legends will never truly trust Mick, ever.

It is at this moment that the Legends kind of forget who they were coming into this whole scenario. Every last one of them isn’t necessarily great, amazing people. But banded together they have the ability to make a difference. Unfortunately for the Legends, their opinion of Mick could cost them everything and allow the Legion of Doom to reign.
