When Brandon Routh originally migrated over from Arrow to Legends of Tomorrow, I’m pretty sure he never thought that he’d one day find himself playing the big bad. But to the credit of Ray Palmer, he never really went to the dark side. Instead, he’s been possessed by Neron in recent weeks and will soon unleash all kinds of hell.
From what we can gather, the demon who once used John Constantine’s ex-boyfriend as a vessel will now use his current meat suit to his advantage. Putting to use the notoriety and resources of Ray Palmer himself, Neron will soon roll out a new product – but potential consumers will really want to read those terms of service, hence the title of this season’s penultimate episode.
Had those folks read the fine print, then they’d know they’re willingly surrendering their souls to Neron. In fact, you can see the evil incarnate in all of his glory in the gallery found below. In addition to those shots, you’ll also find more featuring the Waverider crew. Just don’t ask us why Gary is wearing Nate’s Steel costume.
Right now, I’m hoping that Constantine and the rest of the squad find a way to purge Neron from Ray’s body, as I’m a fan of Brandon Routh. If not, then I guess he’ll bite the dust and Caity Lotz will be bumped up to top billing. At first, that honor belonged to Victor Garber, but then Routh received the title following his colleague’s departure.
