In the last two episodes, two actors have left DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
Warning: This article contains spoilers from the Legends of Tomorrow mid-season finale, “Beebo the God of War.”
After Victor Garber’s expected swan song in the finale of the big Arrowverse crossover, “Crisis on Earth-X,” due to his casting in the Broadway revival of Hello, Dolly!, another actor has left Legends of Tomorrow.
Franz Drameh has also left the series, reports EW, though the door remains open for his return in the future.
Though sad, it’s not entirely surprising since Drameh’s character, Jax, was one half of a super-powered being, Firestorm, alongside Garber’s Martin Stein. Stein was fatally shot in “Crisis on Earth-X,” and prior to his death, he took a serum that severed the connection between the two men and removed Jax’s powers.
In a lovely tribute, “Beebo the God of War” brought back a younger version of Martin Stein. Jax tried to give his late partner’s younger self a means of saving his life in 2017, but the younger Stein decided to live out his life as intended. He also wanted Jax to find happiness in his own life.
After this, Jax decided to leave the Waverider in order to work through his grief. But before he left, the Legends celebrated the holidays as a family in a fitting farewell.
Almost immediately after Jax’s departure, however, a familiar face appeared on the ship: John Constantine looking for Sara’s help.
Legends of Tomorrow returns with new episodes in February 2018.
