At his little girl's home in the present, Mick attempts to give her a photograph collection from every one of their recollections together, yet she despite everything thinks he deserted her since she realizes he escaped prison five years back, and consistently evaporated just after the "fun part" of those recollections.

Zari 1.0 gets some information about Behrad and their folks, and the two rapidly get a Cliff's Notes variant of the other's backstory.

In the forested areas in Vancouver, individuals from the Supernatural team killed by Atropos begin to ascend as zombies to assault the Legends. After Atropos uncovers herself and apparently executes Sara, the Waverider shows up. Taking the most recent bit of the Loom from Charlie, Atropos utilizes it to detect the one on board the Waverider and goes to discover it.

While Zari is communing with herself, Ava and Nate are in the forested areas in Vancouver, Behrad wound up going head to head with Atropos, who requests to know where the second bit of the Loom went. At the point when he won't advise her, she divines it, and afterward murders him in the fight that results when she takes it and he attempts to slaughter her with one of the captivated weapons the Legends had taken from Hell. Disclosing to him that he doesn't have a place there, she hauls a string of destiny out of his chest and cuts it, executing him in a split second.

Requesting the boat to take off, Sara fights Atropos in the freight inlet, cutting her with one of the Hell weapons. It doesn't execute her, however Sara orders Gideon to open the storage while in the Temporal Zone. As Atropos sticks to Sara, Charlie cuts her sister's hand off, both driving her into the Temporal Zone and winning the rings that speak to the Loom.

Within the Totem, Zari says goodbye to her old self, at that point awakens to a mournful team educating her regarding Behrad's passing. Wailing wildly, Zari at last concocts an arrangement: she goes to Constantine and reveals to him that he needs to help fix the Loom with the goal that they can bring Behrad back.
