Did anyone else feel like they watched a brand new episode of The Vampire Diaries tonight?

It took them four years, but the Legacies writers have finally figured it out. 

Who would’ve thought that all it took was killing off Landon and making Hope a full-on Tribrid?

There were so many incredible and heartbreaking moments on Legacies Season 4 Episode 5, but the one thing that was undeniably true is that Hope Mikaelson is her father’s daughter.

It was like watching a mini-Klaus in action. 

In retrospect, someone probably should’ve warned Hope that losing the love of your life might come with the possibility of turning off your humanity. 

However, she didn’t seem to mind all that much because much like her father, she was enjoying a carefree life without all the pain, guilt, and heartache.

When Aunt Rebekah (guest star Claire Holt) returned to talk some sense into her, Hope wasn’t having any of it.

Here’s the thing — the problem with Hope embracing her inner-Klaus is that she’s much more powerful than he ever was.

That 3-in-one power mixed with immortality makes her unstoppable and dangerous. 

Rebekah pulled a Niklaus and daggered her niece in hopes of buying some time, but even that tried and tested method didn’t work on a tribrid. 

Instead, poor Rebekah probably had whiplash from having her neck snapped and waking up to Hope scoffing at the “always and forever” family motto before stealing her car.

That’s the opposite of a sweet family reunion. 

Rebekah tried her best, but she wasn’t successful in convincing Hope to flip her humanity back on. 

And many original fans know that the more damage that Hope does, the harder it will be for her to come back from it because flipping her humanity on means that she has to deal with the consequences of her actions. 

All of that pain will come flooding right back in. 

It’s not a surprise that she’d rather be numb to the pain of losing Landon and of nearly killing Mr. Saltzman.

Hope was ruthless in how she handled Alaric. 

She could’ve sent a message in any other way, but by beating him to a pulp without using her magic, she basically ensured that he wasn’t going to survive. 

While things look pretty grim for him right now, this is Alaric we’re talking about. 

He has died and come back to life once before, so I fully expect him to recover from this again. He has to — who else is going to be there for the merge?

Though, admittedly, I did share a tear because of his goodbye to Lizzie. It’s what she’s always wanted to hear. 

With Malivore put to rest — finally — the show has made room for a new threat. 

And this one has set its sights on the tribrid. 

The vampire at the bar was working for a Triad composed of all three factions — witch, werewolf, and vampire — who set their sights on destroying Hope. 

But will they have what it takes?

Hope seems pretty confident that nothing can touch her. 

Josie and Finch’s relationship is going strong, but Lizzie, on the other hand, is torn between two suitors.

Both Ethan and MG have things going for them, which makes this a much more difficult choice.

While The Vampire Diaries and The Originals have a soft spot for love triangles, this one is different because it’s evolved and mature. 

MG and Ethan know about each other, and they’re kind of rolling with the “let the best man win” mentality.

And for right now, romance is the furthest thing from Lizzie’s mind as she tries to find a way to save her dad. 

However, if I had to pick, I’d say MG knows Lizzie much better than Ethan does. He was able to pinpoint the exact moment that Alaric was going to revisit. 

Still, a candlelight vigil was a sweet gesture and again, very TVD of Ethan. 

Elsewhere, Kaleb tried to make amends for contributing to the rise of the evil tribrid. 

He also shared his first kiss with Cleo, which was super cute. 

What did you think of the episode? Did it give you all the feels?

What’s next for Hope Mikaelson? What will be the moment that forces her to flip the switch on her humanity?

Did you enjoy seeing Holt reprise her role as Rebekah?

    ‘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?

    Share your thoughts about tonight’s Legacies in the comments below. Are you happy Hope’s humanity is back on?
