DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 Episode 15 Review: Fellowship of the Spear

at .  Updated at .

Well, that happened.

With the Spear of Destiny in one piece, the it only took DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 Episode 15 for the thing to fall into the wrong hands.

Why? Why do you think? Because at the heart of it, like many other DC characters who are trying to be heroic, the Legends aren't nice people.

Mick on the Field - DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 Episode 15

To be honest, I couldn't (or didn't care to) follow along with the logic of going here, there and everywhere for the pieces of the spear and Christ's blood, and Tolkien was a wasted real-life character in the hour.

Damien Darhk finally took control of Eobard Thawne's disastrous command of the Legion of Doom's terrible attempts to get the pieces of the spear, and Mick finally had enough of jerks tossing words like friend and loyalty over their shoulder while thinking of him as nothing but trash.

Bravo to both sides.

At least maybe the show will get fun again while it finishes out another lame season.

I don't think I'll bother reviewing it, though. It's become a chore. The characters are mere slivers of who they once were, and they stand for nothing.

Do they even have a mission? Why are they on the Waverider? Remember when Sara was awesome?

During Fellowship of the Spear, Amaya and Mick were the standouts with a decent moment going to Ray.

That's not enough to elevate the hour above dismal.

And you know what? Snart wasn't even as fun as he was when he was on The Flash. Whatever partnership he and Mick once had is over, and Mick's going to realize that.

Poor Mick. We watched Snart grow fairly quickly during DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 1 and loved it. But Mick was growing, too. He's just not a wear your feelings on your sleeves kind of guy.

He keeps his thoughts close to the vest because he's been treated like crap his entire life. As it turns out, he's not wrong for doing so, because even when he does start to open up a bit, as he's done recently with Stein, people turn on him in an instant.

Mick: You're in my head. You're an illumination.
Snart: Hallucination.
Mick: That's it.
Snart [backhands Mick]: Now did that FEEL like an hallucination?

Mick confided in Stein what happened, the jerk reminded him Snart was a hallucination, and then Stein was the first jackass who fired shots at Mick for "confiding" in a DAMNED HALLUCINATION about their plan for the spear.

Really? Really. It was so obvious they were pushing Mick away that it made me want to scream.

I was screaming in my head.

Mick hasn't done anything to deserve any of it, either. And only Ray was able to see it? What does that say about the people on that ship? 

Amaya: Now the Spear of Destiny is in the hand of not just one, but four psychopaths.
Stein: Don't forget Mr. Rory.
Jax: That's right. We trusted him and he screwed us over.
Ray: Did we? Trust him? I admit it, we never really did, and he picked up on it.
Rip: Apparently, Mr. Rory is not entirely stupid.

Even AFTER it was pointed out by Ray, Rip still had the nerve to insult Ray's intelligence. Rip, who knows very well what kind of suffering Mick was under at the hands of the time masters. 

Yes, this is a giant rant.

It's only getting worse because now Mick is on...where is Mick? Where is the Legion? They use the Spear to change reality, which will, of course, have no impact on the other DC shows. OK. Fine. 

Mick isn't a bad guy anymore. He knows it. He's just aching for acceptance. The guy he is now isn't the guy who was friends with THAT Snart Eobard picked up in an alternate timeline somewhere.

He's lacking in so many ways. Mick's going to feel it, and he'll probably save the day.

If he dies saving the day in the same cockamamie way Snart did and goes out a hero? Well, that's a terrible idea.

Nothing they do right now with Mick Rory feels like a good idea.

I wish he had gotten closer with Amaya because their friendship could have been good for both of them. No love interest required. 

Amaya's suffering from the knowledge of what her future holds. Why? Because Nate can't control his feelings and spilled the beans about her destiny. Great dude, that historian.

I'm so disappointed in the characters on this show. Too many of them are ugly on the inside. 

Agree or disagree? I'm all ears. I hope the rest of the season turns out well for you all. Sayonara!

Don't forget to watch DC's Legends of Tomorrow online for some of the better times.
