'Legends of Tomorrow' Says Goodbye to Brandon Routh & Courtney Ford (PHOTOS)

Legends of Tomorrow is getting ready to say goodbye to two of its own, and just because fans knew back in August that Brandon Routh and Courtney Ford would be leaving in Season 5, that doesn't make it any easier.

Episode 7, "Romeo V. Juliet: Dawn of Justness," will see the team tackle a mission — William Shakespeare, obviously, given its title — but the focus of photos the CW has released is on the two departing cast members. According to the logline, "Ray and Nora make [a] big life decision that leaves the team surprised and best buds, Nate and Ray, on the outs."

Routh has played Ray Palmer/The Atom in the Arrowverse since 'Arrow' Season 3.

And based on the photos in the gallery above for the March 17 episode, they'll be saying goodbye in typical Legends of Tomorrow fashion: with a bit of fun and a few tears.
