WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for this week's episode of Legends of Tomorrow, which debuted Tuesday on The CW.
In this week's episode of DC's Legends of Tomorrow, "Beebo the God of War," the team rescues a time-displaced version of the late Martin Stein, who's ultimately given a letter by Jax Jackson warning him of his future death during the events of "Crisis on Earth-X." Young Martin decides to burn the letter so he can remain ignorant of his future and live life to the fullest. The experience made Jax realize he needed time to process the loss of his friend and Firestorm partner, and to live his life, so he left the Waverider.
That decision isn't a mere plot point, however, as Entertainment Weekly confirmed actor Franz Drameh has left the CW drama. It's possible he eventually could return, perhaps as a guest star, but he's no longer a series regular.
Drameh's departure follows quickly on the heels of Victor Garber, whose Martin Stein sacrificed himself for the sake of his fellow Legends, their allies and the entire planet in last week's episode, part of the two-night "Crisis on Earth-X." Combined their characters formed Firestorm, but separately they possessed no powers. Stein, who had planned to return to his family, had offered a serum that could grant Jax Spider-Man-esque abilities, only to be told it wasn't Firestorm he would miss, but rather his friend.
Jax's departure from the Waverider was accompanied by the appearance of Matt Ryan as the fan-favorite John Constantine, who's on board the Waverider for a two-episode arc. There's no indication that the magician will become a permanent fixture, but most anything is possible on Legends of Tomorrow.
DC's Legends of Tomorrow returns in February on The CW.
