Hope Mikaelson isn’t in Mystic Falls anymore. 

In fact, the newly minted (and first of her kind) tribrid without her humanity made the trek all the way to Clarke-y’s, er, Ryan’s, front door and barged in on his two-week anniversary with Trudy. 

Admittedly, that’s not what I had in mind when Ryan said he wanted a human life, but the rundown gray sales job is TV’s truest depiction of what it means to be human. 

While Ryan didn’t necessarily see Hope’s arrival as a blessing, he definitely should’ve been more grateful because she gave him a free pass to dodge a pretty big red flag. 

Who goes all out in such a fashion for a two-week anniversary?

Ryan turned down Hope’s offer to take on the Triad together, but she wasn’t asking as much as she was insisting. 

One compulsion later and Ryan’s schedule was freed up so that he could assist in any way he could. 

Their quest to Triad HQ was pretty lame, I’m not going to lie, but I’m chalking it up to a bigger-picture situation here, especially when the final shot showed Ryan telling Trudy all about vampires. 

Her doe-eyed naivety makes her the perfect victim for those vamps though.

Hope did come out victorious as she left Triad HQ with the information she was seeking, so good for her. 

And, most importantly, Ryan realized there was still a little piece of Hope buried deep down inside that was hopeful that things could turn back around. 

Of course, that’s comforting for the Super Squad as they are literally doing everything in their power to find a solution to save Hope. 

And all the scenarios they’ve been playing out have been pretty grim since they result in everyone getting turned to dust, having their hearts ripped out, incinerated, or, worst of all, beheaded. 

Hope has no mercy when it comes to showing off her newfound power. 

However, Cleo is holding back a tidbit of information that, if it were to get into the wrong hands, could spell a world of trouble: there’s a way to kill Hope. 

No one being every immortal or indestructible; nature always has a way of balancing itself out. 

Cleo mentions her stake came from a nearby tree, so my guess is that it’s the White Oak tree or some variation of it. 

Again, in the wrong hands, that weapon could be Hope’s demise, so it makes sense that Cleo isn’t entirely forthcoming with the information. 

There are a lot of emotions running rampant right now, and with Alaric’s life hanging in the balance, not everyone is thinking clearly. Someone could do something they regret and can never take back. 

However, the plan isn’t to kill Hope, it’s to get her back, so the stake is a last resort of sorts. 

Lizzie almost did something she couldn’t come back from when she found a spell to bring someone back from the dead that required a human sacrifice. 

She was all for it until she realized that she was killing someone else’s father in order to save her own. 

Lizzie can be a lot of things, but she’s not a murderer. 

And Josie is right — if they want a shot at saving Alaric, they’re going to have to find a way to get through to Hope. 

It’s a huge burden to put on the twins, and, in turn, the Super Squad, so I’m shocked that they’re all still required to attend classes. 

Also, why knew that school had actual teachers that took attendance?!

Over on the Other Side, or as some like to call it, Limbo, Ted and Landon were hoping to find a way to cross over to the land of peace. 

Without a gold coin to pay the toll, they were both stuck. That all changed when Ted ran into his old buddy Oscar who had been stuck there for years waiting for the all mighty Necromancer to bring him back. 

Ted couldn’t cross because he had an unresolved issue. He had to be honest with Oscar about the fact that he never tried to revive him and that he only sacrificed him to wield more power. 

Once Oskar forgave him, Ted got a gold coin. And when he gave that gold coin to Landon willingly, he got a second one. 

Self-sacrifice is always the answer. 

And then, in a shocking moment, the duo was joined by Alaric Saltzman. 

Does this mean our vampire-hunter-turned-dad-and-supernatural-school-principal is dead?

How will they get him back? There’s no Legacies without the man in charge! 

Maybe there’s a chance for Alaric and Landon to get a second chance at life after all. 

Other stray musings

  • Kaleb is going to go out of his way to make things better by finding the monster Ryan called about by himself. 
  • Also, the fire breathing power is pretty cool for Kaleb. 
  • Josie and Finch are still super cute. I’m glad she’s a constant for Josie during this tough time. 
  • Ethan is a fun addition to the Super Squad. Once he learns how to use his invisibility, that guy is going places!

‘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?
