Two days ago, DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow did the unthinkable. The season premiere was actually interesting.  Season 3 premiered to show us what lies ahead for the viewers to watch out for – awesome, well placed humor, a wacky but sensible plot and loads of drool-worthy action. Yet the Legends wouldn’t be legends had it not been for the core characters carrying the burden of the entire show on their shoulders. Sad news gentlemen. One of them is about to leave the CW series for good.

So if you don’t wanna have your meek little hearts broken, look away!!! SPOILER ALERT…

Say sayonara to Victor Garber aka Martin Stein who plays one half of the nuclear powered superhero Firestorm. Garber has always ouctlassed the other legends with his acting chops. His well layered character with it’s many flaws and infinite wisdom has been a father figure to the Waverider crew. Losing such a fan favorite is sad news indeed.

Garber will be joining Barnadette Peters for the Tony award winning remake of the Broadway musical Hello, Dolly!. The first show is on January 20 and it will be hard for Garber to juggle both the musical and the TV series.

Episode 1 of season 3 revealed Mr. Stein is soon gonna be Grandpa Stein. Promising to return by the time of his grandchild’s birth, Stein decided to embark on another epic journey. But it to be his last, would be a shocker for the fans. His death would mean no more Firestorm in the show. Or is it? Ronnie Raymond is rumored of making a comeback to the Arrowverse. Will Jefferson and Ronnie team up now? Maybe. Yet the void Stein leaves as he parts is gonna take much more than that to fill. 🙁

Guess we wont be hearing the word “Astonishing!!” anytime soon.

However, Nate and Ray accidentally free a saber toothed tiger, creating a bigger problem. Meanwhile, P.T. Barnum (guest star Billy Zane) is on the hunt to capture Nate and Ray to make his show even more exciting for the crowd.
