Nate is sent to quarter and Amaya is in the sickbay where she is in a vision, Amaya meets her Ancestor in a world between world. The Ancestor tells Amaya that she can’t stop the force of natures and she need not control the totem but run beside it. The Ancestor tells Amaya that the totem is becoming stronger because of the potent new threat she was about to face, but she cannot face it alone. Amaya must find the girl, and she should not fail the new totem bearer, and she should not fear the totem but put her trust in it.

Sara, Stein, and Nate keep Sharp and the Time Bureau occupied since they refuse to tell them Ray and Zari Co-ordinance. Kuasa tries to convince Zari to give her the totem, but she refuses, and try to find a safe ground for her and Ray.

Sara threatens to make the Waverider collide with the time Bureau ship, but their ship jumps away seconds before the Collison. Jax, Mick, and Amaya arrive in time to save Ray and Zari from Kuasa, Amaya took her Ancestors advice and trusted the totem and knocks Kuasa to the ground and tell her to say down. Kuasa takes out a rock and tells her that she would kill Amaya, but she would only be killing herself.

Sharpe tells Sara that if she ever finds them, she would banish them to the end of time. Amaya tells Nate that her faith is interwind with Zari’s and Mick goes to drop off Zari in her garage, and Amaya invites her to join the team.

Final scene we see young Ray Palmer in Ivy town 1988 running away from bullies, and he hides in an empty water drain where he meets a mysterious creature.

It was a nice episode, I love when Sara get mad, and I like the banter between Sara and Sharp. Zari joins the team I am not sure how I feel about it yet. I would give the episode a 7.5/10.
