Legacies Review-The End of Kai Parker? (2x13)

What a doozy.

After last week’s fantastic episode featuring the return of Kai Parker, Legacies picks up with Kai now officially out of the prison world.

His mission: wreak havoc in Mystic Falls.

Aside from that,  I’m not totally sure what he’s trying to do here. Is he just trying to screw with Ric? We know he wants to demolish the prison world and the Saltzmans along with it, but did he have a game plan for after that?

Regardless, this episode’s pacing kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time.

The episode title “You Can’t Save Them All” was a pivotal theme of the episode’s main conflict.

Kai forces Hope to choose between saving Landon or saving everyone stuck in the prison world.

I never doubted for a minute she would choose the Saltzmans over him, but I do feel bad for the Hope and Landon shippers right now. I’m sure it was partially a numbers game, saving six versus saving one, but even if it was just one Saltzman versus Landon, I think he would’ve been a goner.

She doesn’t have a lot of family left, so I would imagine she’d go to any length to rescue the man who stepped in to help raise her. She’s recently become really close with Lizzie, and her and Josie have always had a special relationship. I don’t think he can compete with that.

I really thought Landon’s time on this show might’ve been up this episode. But alas, he lives another day. He had a prophecy and a powerful heretic working against him and he still prevailed. He’ll never be on Hope’s level of hero, but he has come far.

Also, it rubbed me the wrong way that we didn’t see any hints that Landon cared about Josie being stuck in the prison world. He was obviously trying to help Hope rescue them, but it’s like the show forgot those two characters had a relationship this season. You would think he’d care more about someone he was once so close to being in danger, but we only really got to see Hope’s concern instead of his.

I’m glad Lizzie didn’t die and become a heretic yet. I think she should in the future, especially to avoid the merge, but I want it to be her choice, not Sebastian’s.

I’ll admit I was surprised we got any semblance of redemption from Sebastian. Him choosing to stay behind to be the anchor to another world felt all too familiar, but at least this is someone who deserved what he got.

I’ll miss seeing Thomas Doherty on my screen, but I think the show will be better off with him gone.

This was the episode where we finally got to see Dark Josie in all her glory. I loved her transformation with the dyed hair and weird veins protruding out of her face. It’s cheesy-looking but fun.

It reminded me so much of Elena when she shut off her humanity. There’s nothing more exciting than seeing the ultimate good-girl character turn evil. It’s fun to watch.

I’m glad she’ll be sticking around. I was going to be really disappointed if they’d teased this plotline for so long and abandoned it within an episode. Especially since she’s so powerful. She brought back memories of Kai and opened a door out of the prison world. Who knows what she can do?

Also, was I supposed to get a flirty vibe between Josie and Jade at the end? I don’t like it. Jade knew Josie as a kid, so it seems too weird for me. Also, Hope is right there. Her and Josie have the most chemistry on the show. I don’t know if its Danielle Rose Russell and Kaylee Bryant or if the writers are headed in that direction, but I’m totally on #TeamHosie.

Unfortunately, for the time being I think Chris Wood’s appearance on Legacies has come to an end. Alaric’s “This is for Jo” was a perfectly cathartic moment to say goodbye to such a great character. He brought out the best in Legacies and made me miss TVD more than ever. Please come back soon!

Stray Thoughts:

  • Is it just me or was the big reveal of Landon’s Phoenix form a bit weird? I don’t know if it was the CGI or just a general cringe associated with the scene. Josie’s dark eyes were also subpar.
  • Did Dorian die? I liked the guy but Legacies has to start killing off characters. The body counts on TVD and TO compared to Legacies is ridiculous. This is a supernatural show, there should be collateral damage and stakes the characters have to worry about. If no one important ever dies I’ll stop worrying when my favorite characters are in danger.
  • I don’t buy that Kai’s out of the picture for good. He has a way of coming back even when he shouldn’t.
  • I like Jade. I hope she sticks around.
  • Rafael finally returned. I’m still not sure what they’re doing with his character.
  • Love square alert between Alyssa, Kaleb, Jed, and MG? I think I’m on #TeamKaleb for this one.

Who do you ship Alyssa with?

Do you think Kai will return anytime soon?

What do you think of the prophecy?

Legacies will return March 12th on The CW. Until then, let us know in the comments what you think of the season so far.

‘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?
