An adorable Malivore monster? That’s a first. 

But it wasn’t wise to be fooled by the Gremlin’s (it was a Furby, let’s be real) appearance as he quickly turned into a scary, menacing creature who thrived off of the disrespect between Hope and Lizzie.

Not only did the little guy have a potty mouth, but he also tried to drive a wedge between the two ladies. What a rude little dude. 

It’s been. bit since Hope and Lizzie butted heads, and I’ve quite enjoyed their friendship, so it was slightly disappointing to see them regress. 

However, I was pleased that Lizzie didn’t just forgive and forget Hope for putting her and Josie in harms way simply to get Landon back. 

Hope has zero regard for others, but she needed to be held accountable and reminded that her behavior wasn’t okay. 

Even Landon seemed to understand that Hope went a little too far with her mission to save him. 

But even with Lizzie and Landon pointing out Hope’s mistakes, she was never truly remorseful; her apology always featured a “but.”

In order to defeat the Gremlin, Hope and Lizzie had to genuinely respect each other, which was easier said than done. 

They eventually found common ground and realized that they fight like sister’s because they’re much more alike than they’d want to admit. 

Hopefully, this is the last time Lizzie and Hope turn on each other because, as I said, I prefer them as friends! They’re better together, as cheesy as that may seem. 

Landon made some solid points throughout the episode, which was a first. He pointed out that Hope hurt others in her quest to save him, and he followed that up by telling her that she has to stop prioritizing him.

Even Landon is realizing that Hope’s obsession with him isn’t healthy. 

Her whole life revolves around Landon, but it’s not normal for one person to be someone’s whole world.

It’s such a disservice to Hope’s character because it makes her one-dimensional. She doesn’t see anything or anyone outside of Landon. She’s always focused on being with him, saving him, protecting him. 

Truthfully, I don’t think Hope knows who she is without him and that, unfortunately, diminishes all the badass things about the tribrid. 

Let’s give her something more than a relationship to focus on! 

I’ve said this before, but the monsters-of-the-week are just not doing it anymore, so I’m excited about this new mystery that Alaric has unfolded that could potentially put them away for good. 

Or, at the very least, it could give us something else to focus on. 

The artifact Alaric stumbled upon somehow connects to Einstein, Rasputin, and Napolean Bonaparte. Alaric revisiting his historical roots? Yes, please! 

The strange intro also revealed that Clarke, Landon’s brother, was somehow around when Einstein had the artifact, but it’s unclear what all of this means. 

And then… there are the adorable nods to The Vampire Diaries that made up for the lackluster episode!

Many Legacies fans have been stalking Nina Dobrev’s Instagram and saw her mysterious posts “on-set” where she reunited with Katherine’s hair extensions. Naturally, it led people to believe that she’s making an appearance on the series. 

And while I’d usually ignore the rumors, the fact that the episode not only restored Elena’s teenage home to its full glory (it looks exactly the same!), but also revealed that Josie has been staying with “Aunt Elena” is enough to raise some eyebrows.

They wouldn’t just mention Elena if they didn’t plan on bringing her back for an episode, right?

I find it strange that Alaric would be living in the same town as Elena, Damon, and their children and yet, they never cross paths! 

If the series doesn’t plan on bringing any of them back, then I’d rather they not mention them because all it does is make it seem like Elena, Damon, Bonnie, Caroline, etc. just don’t care about any of their old friends. 

Alaric was like a father to Elena, so I doubt she’d remove herself completely from his life and not stay in touch. 

And why isn’t their kid enrolled in the Salvatore School? Or Mystic Falls High?  I believe they mentioned a Stephanie Salvatore before! 

Josie invited Alaric for dinner at Aunt Elena’s, and he even mentioned that he didn’t want her to get dating advice from Damon. 

It’s too much of a tease if they don’t actually have any cameos in motion!

Josie isn’t the only one settling down at Mystic Falls High as MG has decided to start a new chapter in his life. 

But while Josie is all about “no magic,” MG doesn’t mind bringing his vamp talents to the mortal high school. 

In fact, he used his vamp speed to save Ethan, who almost got run over by a truck. Instead of erasing Ethan’s mind, he trusted him enough to keep his secret. 

Truthfully, I’m digging this new friendship! But I also think there’s more to Ethan than meets the eye. Maybe he’s unaware of his supernatural powers?

Caleb seemed pretty bummed to see that MG made a new friend because it meant he wasn’t coming back to the Salvatore School.

But honestly, MG deserves better as his skills and talents were underappreciated at the school by so many of his peers. 

Plus, Caleb has Cleo now, and she’s been officially inducted into the Super Squad!

But can we trust her? She’s come to their rescue twice now and seems genuine, but you can never be too careful with new faces in Mystic Falls! 

What did you think of the episode? Do you think Hope needs to find a hobby?

Will Elena Gilbert be making an appearance in the new future?

‘Legacies’ Canceled at The CW – Season 4 Will be the Last

QUIZ: Which 'Legacies' Character Are You?

It’s the end of a franchise on The CW. 

The network officially canceled Legacies, a spinoff of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals. 

The news, while heartbreaking, might not be unexpected for those who have been following along and awaiting a verdict. 

Things didn’t bode well for the series after the network banished the remaining three episodes from their scheduled May airdates to the month of June. 

‘Dynasty,’ ‘Roswell, New Mexico,’ ‘Charmed’ Among Shows Canceled by The CW

And when The CW canceled Dynasty, Roswell, New Mexico, Charmed, In the Dark, and 4400 earlier today, things looked even bleaker for the Danielle Russell-led series. 

Admittedly, Legacies never reached the heights that its predecessors did, and viewership has only been dwindling. 

The series will come to an end with its fourth season. 

The CW really broke took a jab at so many fandoms today!

Deadline reports that the network is currently in talks to be sold to station group Nexstar, which could explain the decision to slice its programing roster in half. 

It previously canceled Batwoman and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow

Back in March, the network gave green lights for several of its dramas: All American renewed for season 5, The Flash renewed for season 9, Kung Fu renewed for season 3, Superman & Loisrenewed for season 3, Nancy Drew renewed for season 4, Riverdale renewed for season 7, Walker renewed for season 3.

‘Legacies’ Season 4 Finale Pushed Back to Summer – Here’s When the Next Episode Will Air

Published

Legacies All’s Well That Ends Well Season 3 Episode 10

We’ve got some bad news, Legacies fans.

The supernatural series will not air its final three episodes in May. 

Initially, Legacies was supposed to air a new episode on Thursday, May 12. The whole season 4 run was set to conclude on May 26th. 

That’s no longer the case! 

The network has instead delayed the remaining three episodes for a June premiere. That means the Super-squad will have to wait a few extra weeks to face off against the God’s. 

The revised schedule is as follows — so plan accordingly. 

“By The End Of This, You’ll Know Who You Were Meant To Be,” slated for May 12, will premiere June 2 instead. 

“This Can Only End In Blood,” slated for May 19, will air on June 9.

And the season finale titled “Do You Mind Staying With Me For Another Minute,” set for May 26, will conclude on June 16.

It’s not clear why The CW has chosen to postpone the rest of the season, but we’re hoping that it’s play to boost ratings and justify a renewal for Season 5.

At the time of posting, the series — a spinoff from teen drama’s The Vampire Diaries and The Originals — has not been renewed.

Will The CW Renew ‘Dynasty,’ ‘Roswell, New Mexico,’ ‘Legacies,’ and More?

Legacies Review – I Wouldn’t Be Standing Here If It Weren’t For You (4×16)

Legacies Review I Wouldn’t Be Standing Here If It Weren’t For You Season 4 Episode 16

The Salvatore School welcomed it’s strongest monster yet — Ken the God. 

Ken arrived on campus ready to do so damage, which if you think about it, is really ungodlike. 

But he made his ultimatum very clear; either they surrender Jen or he kills everyone in his attempt to take his traitorous daughter. 

It’s been awhile since we had a solid Lizzie and Hope team-up. Sure, they partnered up when Hope’s humanity was off, but it’s entirely different when Hope is back to her old self.

However, Hope’s martyr complex seems to have transferred onto Lizzie. While Hope may be a tribrid and Lizzie is a heretic, they were naive to think they stood any chance against Ken. 

They’ve run this scenario plenty of times and they know that the odds of them winning any battle against him are slim. 

Ken, who was awoken by Ben who wanted to get the boon for waking his father in order to break his curse, threw Hope and Lizzie around like rag dolls. I mean, it was brutal to watch. 

Hope attempted to look tough with her “I’m Klaus Mikealson’s daughter,” but even her strength was no match for him. She looked like a mere mortal next to this godly creature.

The confrontation ended pretty terribly for both the ladies. Lizzie was impaled on the metal gate — though she survived because she’s also a vampire now!

And Hope, well, she went from losing everything, turning off her humanity, hurting the ones she loved, defeating the darkest parts of herself, and fall into yet another “sleeping beauty” coma. 

Before mustering up a plan to take down a god, Hope had to make sure that she was in the right headspace, which meant getting rid of humanity-less Hope — the uninvited guest just sticking around. 

It was actually Lizzie who figured out a way to help Hope silence her “other half” once and for all. 

Lizzie suggested that it wasn’t Hope’s dark counterpart that was holding on, but rather, Hope was holding onto humanity-less hold as a shield; a defense mechanism if you will. 

It’s understandable considering all the terrible things that Hope has done while her humanity was off. She’s hurt the people she’s loved countless of times, and she’s being forced to live with that guilt.

She was shielding herself from the fear of losing the people she loves. 

And by keeping dark Hope around, she didn’t have to face the profound loss of Landon. 

So, why Hope wouldn’t wake up after getting a really intense beat down from Ken, it stumped Cleo until it was revealed that Hope found her way to limbo where she reconnected with her one true love. 

You didn’t think that they would actually give up the idea of Hope and Landon, right? They’re meant to be, soulmates, yada yada. Though, it was a nice break to see them apart and move on with some other storylines.

My guess is that Landon is crucial in finding a way to help them defeat the gods, while Hope is what Landon needs in order to be brought back to the real world. 

He can’t stay in limbo forever. 

And neither can Hope. 

Though, Landon has really made a life for himself here, which goes to show that you can successfully reinvent yourself time and time again.

After being kidnapped by the coin thief, it was revealed to be Landon’s birth mother, Seylah. I didn’t think we’d ever see her again, and Landon was equally as surprised. 

But it was a sweet aside from all the WWE-esque smackdown happening in Mystic Falls, a town that truly gets evacuated with fake emergencies all too often. 

Landon “forgave” his mother, which, in turn, allowed her to finally get her own coin an cross over. But it wasn’t forgiveness she was seeking after all; Seylah couldn’t move on until she knew that her son was going to be okay without her. 

It was nice for Landon to get this closure with his family, and the cherry on top was Hope’s arrival.

Back in Mystic Falls, Lizzie sought out forgiveness from the ones she hurt, Ethan’s powers started glitching without explanation, Cleo changed the future thus rendering her oracle powers useless — though it’s not entirely clear what her new form will be, while Ben and Jed had their first argument. 

Jed ended up snapping Ben’s neck and locking him in the dungeon cage, which was valid considering Ben brought the wrath of his father on them for selfish reasons. He tried to explain his poor decisions by assuring Jed that he wanted to protect him and his friends, but honestly, it’s hard to see the positive side of this when Ken is literally waging war on people half his size.

Hopefully, the magical school has enough resources to leverage to bring him down and save Jen in the process. 

That poor girl only wanted to live her life on he own terms and yet she got sucked into this whole mess. 

And while the gods bring an interesting perspective into town, I had a moment where I thought about Nina Dobrev’s Elena and Ian Somehalder’s Damon Salvatore dealing with gods in the townsquare, and it made me chuckle. I know they technically had their own monster with the siren, but can you just imagine these kind of silly monsters running around back in the day when one of the only issues was vampires that were hundreds of years old?
