The CW released the official synopsis for Brandon Routh’s final episode of Legends of Tomorrow.
Last summer, fans learned that Brandon Routh and Courtney Ford would be leaving Legends of Tomorrow at some point during the fifth season. Now, the real-life husband and wife are set to make their final regular appearances as Ray Palmer and Nora Darhk, respectively, in the upcoming episode titled “Romeo v. Juliet: Dawn of Justness.”
Unfortunately, the episode synopsis does not provide a precise reason for why Brandon Routh’s Ray Palmer decides to leave the Legends of Tomorrow team. Instead, the synopsis simply stated that Brandon Routh’s Ray Palmer and Courtney Ford’s Nora Darhk make a decision that “leaves the some surprised”.
Here is the official synopsis for “Romeo v. Juliet: Dawn of Justness”:
