Last week on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, history mixed with legend as the team visited King Arthur’s court in Camelot to find a piece of the Spear of Destiny, after Damian Darhk (Neal McDonough) killed Dr. Mid-Nite (Kwesi Ameyaw) for a different piece. Evil Rip (Arthur Darvill) took over King Arthur (Nils Hognestad) and his army’s minds to fight to the death. He said Arthur will kill himself if they don’t. Although Nate’s (Nick Zano) book said Ray (Brandon Routh) will die, Ray didn’t care. He still wanted to fight. While half of them fought, the other half tried to control the army, but it was Mick (Dominic Purcell) who was able to break the brain spell. They captured Rip.
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow 2.13 “Land Of The Lost” review: The team is still looking for the last piece of spear. Rip tries to get Gideon (Amy Pemberton) to listen to him, but she won’t until he says the override code. They are on lockdown and Rip is on the loose. He initiating spectrum protocol – to self-destruct. Rip destroys the medallion and Mick punches him out. They land at the exact same time Rip had stranded Ray in before, around 65 million B.C. They search for the delineator in “Gertrude’s” territory – Ray is sure she is hibernating… or not.
Jax and Sara go inside Rip’s head. The first confrontation is with another version of Sara – “you don’t belong here.” Real Sara fights and beats her, but they realize that in Rip’s mind, the team is evil.
“Evil Mick? I guess that’s just regular Mick.” Sara can be funny! She runs into Evil Ray and Evil Mick. They knock her out and throw her in a cell, where the real Rip is cowering and shivering. Sara gives Rip the Rocky speech and they are able to escape the cell.
Ray takes them to his former home, complete with “urine Perimeter.” Amaya flirts with Nate. She’s changed her mind about getting too close. Ray tells Nate to stay away. Amaya has a destiny, that she can’t know about but must fulfill. Nate wants to tell her. “You can’t.” Ray takes it back later, and Nate says he won’t let it progress. But we know he will.
Ray meets Gideon in the flesh. She’s pretty hot.
Stein is freaking out, but Mick gives him a life lesson. Again, Mick with the save. Is it any wonder that he’s my favorite?
“Looks like we are going to have to kick our own asses.” A 2nd joke!
Amaya communicates with a Gertrude the T-Rex and it backs off. Ray and Nate are astounded.
Rip protects real Jax and Sara with Gideon’s encouragement. Rip kisses Gideon, and wakes up, “Where am I?”
Stein: “You’re home.” The ship is fixed. Rip puts his jacket on and remembers everything. He walks in and they greet him one by one.
In 1970, Eobard Thawne (Matt Letscher) is the doctor for the Apollo 13 mission. Not good.
I am so glad that this evil Rip Hunter storyline is over. Sara was a great captain, but it was not the same without him in the lead. The season has not been the same without him on the good side. I don’t necessarily agree with Ray’s assessment of the Nate/Amaya situation. I mean… can’t Nate be the future Vixen’s grandfather? Maybe things are going the way they should be. Or maybe she’s already pregnant with Rex Tyler’s baby.
This was a good episode, with Ray giving a good explanation for his “golly gee” ways, and Sara having a nice sense of humor. Again, Mick Rory is the star, even without that much screen time.
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow airs Tuesday nights at 9:00pm ET on The CW.

Meanwhile, Nate and Amaya continue to get closer, but it could cause serious ramifications. Victor Garber also stars.
