"There are no strings on me."
Leonard Snart's last words right before the Oculus blows up
"Destiny" is the fifteenth episode of the first season of DC's Legends of Tomorrow, and the fifteenth episode overall. It aired on May 12, 2016.


Being in the vicinity of the Time Masters leaves Rip and Rory incredibly disturbed for very different reasons. Meanwhile, Sara takes over the Waverider, Kendra is reunited with Carter and Snart decides he might be a hero after all.[src]


Preparation ran from February 29 until March 8, 2016. Shooting began on March 9 and ran until March 21, 2016.[1]



Sneak peeks


  • The Time Masters appeared unaware of the danger Martin Stein posed, as he was steadily becoming unstable to the point where he would explode.
    • Thus, if Jax hadn't managed to get back, it's possible the Legends would have left Martin behind to explode and take the Oculus with him.
  • Time Master Druce tells Rip that Earth will be attacked in 2175 by an alien race from Thanagar. In the comics, Thanagar is the home planet of the Hawkmen and Hawkwomen.
  • After managing to hide on the Waverider while the rest of the team was captured, Sara says, "This isn't 'Bonnie and Clyde.'" while discussing her and Snart's next move, referring to the 1967 film by the same name.
  • When Jax enlists the aid of an older version of Professor Stein, after traveling back in time to before the two joined the Legends, it's seen in the lab that Stein is building a Time Bubble. The Time Bubble was Rip Hunter's vehicle of choice in the DC comics and also appeared in The Flash episode "Fast Enough".
  • Before Snart sacrifices himself, he says, "there are no strings on me", quoting a lyric from "I've Got No Strings", a song from Pinocchio.
  • In the last episode, Snart made it clear he was attracted to Sara. This episode shows Sara reciprocates his feelings by sharing a kiss with him before his death.
  • It is later revealed in The Flash episode, "Into the Speed Force", that the reason that Snart chose to sacrifice himself at the Vanishing Point and save his teammates was not to save Mick Rory, but because of the good he'd seen Barry do as The Flash.
  • Based on what Rip tells the team, the Oculus seems to trick a person's conscience. Such an example is Rip sparing Per Degaton when killing him would have been the right move.[2]
  • This episode features the last appearance of present-day Leonard Snart, following his sacrifice.
