The season five finale of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow bid farewell to three Arrowverse characters.
With Legends of Tomorrow season five coming to a close, several notable Arrowverse characters have left the series ahead its sixth season. Tala Ashe said goodbye to one version of Zari, as she realized her place in the new timeline was threatening Behrad’s life and decided to retreat back into the Totem so he could survive. Luckily the version of Zari in love with Constantine is still sticking around. However, Maisie Richardson-Sellers also left her role behind in the episode. After Charlie had finally lost her immortality, she decided to rejoin her band (The Smell) safe in the knowledge that she could finally enjoy life.
Olivia Swann’s Astra also left Legends of Tomorrow and found peace by being properly reunited with her mother. She traded Matt Ryan’s Constantine his Soul Coin so she could own his haunted house. With the ghost of Astra’s Mother living in the house, it meant she could finally have something of a normal life. Obviously, Arrowverse characters can always return in the future but for now, Richardson-Sellers and Swann are moving on with their careers.
