Legacies Season 2 Episode 3 brought the annual American football game between the Salvatore School for the Gifted and Mystic Falls.

But unlike last year, the students from the Salvatore School didn’t exactly play fairly.

Their new headmaster encouraged them to use their superior abilities without being exposed and so, they did.

While mostly everyone felt bad about cheating to get ahead and acknowledged that Alaric was onto something when he taught them to play fair and square, Josie’s competitive nature got the best of her.

It’s that competitive nature that Headmaster Vardemus tried to manipulate by giving her a spell to rig the game.

The spell broke the arm of Mystic Falls’ star QB and lost him a scholarship he’s worked for his whole life.

Seeing how badly Jo hurt someone else means that this is the start of a terrible path for her.

She explains the dark feelings inside of her to Landon at the end of the episodes, and it’s evident that her personality swing will play a huge role in the merger.

While everyone was invested in this football game, Hope was out in the woods slaying the Shunka, the most recent monster to have escaped Malivore.

The Shunka didn’t pose a threat to any of the students, but it did pose a threat to the wolves namely Rafael who was still in his wolf form.

Unfortunately, after turning back, Rafael didn’t remember Hope as we all believed he would.

Mission #SaveRafael allowed Hope and Landon to spend some time together and the chemistry between them is palpable. There’s an undeniable connection between them that has been built over time.

At times, you just want to scream at Landon for not remembering.

But despite Hope being erased from his memory, Landon feels the chemistry just as he feels that Hope is special.

So far, he knows she’s a witch and werewolf, and he’ll be determined to figure out who she is, which isn’t going to bode well for his relationship with Josie.

Things are bound to get uncomfortable once they all learn the truth.

Hope is such a trooper for putting up with her ex and dealing with Jo’s jealousy when in reality, she’s the one that should be angry.

I cannot wait until the truth comes out and believe it’ll likely have something to do with true love’s kiss.

If it works for princesses, why can’t it work for hybrids?

We met the new Sheriff in town and no, she doesn’t want to talk about what happened to Sheriff Donovan.

Though they referred to Matt in the past tense, I’m going to assume he simply left Mystic Falls behind to live out his “normal” life.

There’s definitely going to be a relationship between the new Sheriff and Alaric, and it’s possible her kids Ethan and Maya are going to get roped into all this supernatural stuff now that they’re Hope’s only friends.

Lizzie avoided much of the football game in hopes of finding out what Sebastian was.

She’s made huge progress as a character by acknowledging that he may be a monster.

Sebastian said he was a “vampyr,” which isn’t technically a monster in this realm, the catch is that he’s either invisible or he’s not real at all.

I’m leaning toward Sebastian being a figment of Lizzie’s imagination meaning she’s not actually as healthy as she believed she was.

Thankfully, MJ has her back and witnessed her “making out” with thin air.

He cares enough about her to protect her from whatever this Sebastian thing is.

Yet the biggest mystery of the series boils down to who Headmaster Vardemus is and what game he’s playing.

At the end of the episode, we saw his face get all distorted as he dug into his meal — the slayed Shunka.

Is Vardemus the ultimate Malivore monster?

Is his intention to destroy the school? To make all the supernatural beings evil?

I cannot believe he forbade Alaric from coming onto the school grounds… the same school grounds Alaric helped start with Caroline.

What did you think of the episode?

Will Hope ever come clean about who she is? How long are they going to stay in the dark?

Legacies Review – Hope Turns Into a Monster (3×11)

Published

Legacies Review You Can’t Run from Who You Are Season 3 Episode 11

It was business as usual at the Salvatore School on Legacies Season 3 Episode 11 as Alaric and team brainstormed ways to destroy Malivore using Cleo, their new muse.

Cleo inspired a few plans, but none of them went as planned. Do they ever, though?

Hope and Landon astral projected to the prison world in hopes of destroying it and Malivore along with it using the Necromancer.

However, upon arrival, they realized the Necromancer couldn’t come to the phone. Why? Cause he’s dead. 

And while that obviously put a dent in Hope’s plan, I was pretty thrilled that we wouldn’t have to deal with the Necromancer again because, much like the prison world, he’s greatly overstayed his welcome.

However, it seems like we were all onto something when we theorized that Landon wasn’t being himself. 

If I had to guess, I’d say that Landon’s been a vessel for the Necromancer, who somehow hitched a ride in his body upon returning to Mystic Falls. 

You’ve got to admit that Landon was way too good at impersonating the Necromancer. It’s almost as if he was him. 

The best part is that Hope wasn’t the one to figure it out. She’s been so happy to have Landon back that she ignored all the red flags and didn’t even realize her boyfriend wasn’t himself! 

Is that a telling sign about their relationship?

Instead, Wade was the one that picked up on Landon’s odd behaviors.

Landon didn’t remember his favorite module from D&D, and the berbalang went after him instead of the dead flesh which it usually craves. 

Props to Wade for being so observant.

However, there were moments were Landon acted like himself, so maybe he’s internally fighting with the Necromancer and doesn’t remember it?

Wade found it weird that Landon stabbed Hope in the heart, but he did it to save her. He also immediately jumped into action when the berbalang bit Hope and the bite transferred over into the real world. 

Also, how fun was it that one of their own turned into a monster-of-the-week. 

In order to save Hope, Josie was forced to confront her dark subconscious — welcome back, Dark Josie — and take back her magic. 

And it’s about time. 

I’m all for Josie attending Mystic Falls High if she’s genuinely interested in embracing a human existence, but she can’t do it at the expense of herself.

 It’s obvious that she’s been struggling because she’s not being authentic about who she is. 

She’s running away and trying to suppress the supernatural parts of herself, which, in turn, means she’s letting the dark side win.

Josie needs to own who she is — a witch. 

And she doesn’t even know it yet, but even in the muggle world, she fell in love with a supernatural creature. 

Lizzie and MG confronted Finch about her werewolf gene, and the poor girl had no idea how it worked or what triggered it. 

Lizzie went into protective mode, which is understandable, but it’s a little strange that she automatically assumed Finch was a bad person and a killer. 

From past experiences (see: Tyler Lockwood), werewolves trigger the curse accidentally. 

Still, Lizzie wanted proof that Finch wasn’t a cold-blooded murderer and forced the poor girl to remember that she was tricked into killing her grandfather. 

It was a heartbreaking memory that she forced her to tap into. Though, it does help us understand Finch a little better.

Lizzie meant well — she simply went about it the wrong way. 

However, she’s making a lot of progress by admitting that she screwed up and asking MG for advice. 

Hopefully, she takes it because Josie deserves to know the truth about Finch. She’s been so hard on herself for her relationships falling apart, but this time, it wasn’t her fault at all.

And now that she’s accepted her supernatural side again, she can be a source of support for Finch. 

Kaleb finally scored his first date with Cleo, but in order to do so, he needed to be vulnerable and honest. 

I love that Cleo is so secure that she wasn’t falling for Kaleb’s game and demanded he drop the act if he wanted a chance with her. 

It’s about time we ask men to be real instead of encouraging their macho actions.

This is the start of a healthy relationship, which honestly, might be a first for the series. 

Hope and Landon should get some pointers!

Alaric’s mission to Triad HQ with Cleo and Kaleb also unearthed some clues about his artifact. 

Even though the parchment turned to dust, Alaric found out that it likely created by Leonardo da Vinci. Is this giving anyone The Da Vinci Code vibes?!

He also realized that it’s connected to Project Pandora, the mythical box that Alaric and Hope opened which contained all the world’s ills.

Does this mean the artifact is the key to destroying Malivore?

They always say that those who give the best advice rarely take their own. MG gave Lizzie solid advice about how to handle things with Josie, but he didn’t take his own advice when it came to Ethan. 

The downside of allowing a human to know about the supernatural is that they can get hurt… badly hurt. 

Ethan is the present-day version of Matt Donovan. He’s a human who is all too eager to get involved in supernatural situations that have nothing to do with him. 

It was only a matter of time before he got injured. 

MG will either have to come clean to Alaric or give Ethan his blood to help heal him. Neither option is ideal.

4 Biggest Moments from Legacies ‘All’s Well That Ends Well’

Published

on

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

Legacies is going on a brief hiatus until May, so “All’s Well That Ends Well” brought out all the punches. 

The action-packed episode — one of the strongest of the season — found the students of the Salvatore School battling a banshee in order to get information on Malivore. 

These were the biggest moments from Legacies Season 3 Episode 10: 

Finch is a Wolf

Lizzie tried to help Josie get the girl with her encyclopedic rom-com knowledge, but when Josie finally made her move on Finch with an impassioned speech, she got rejected with a capital R. 

Josie jumped to the most obvious conclusion: Finch was already seeing someone else hence the “plans.”

However, Lizzie snooped around long enough to prove my sneaky suspicion that there wasn’t anything ordinary about Finch. Her “plans” included turning during a full moon because she’s a Mystic Falls werewolf. 

Lizzie didn’t have the heart to tell Josie, so she just told her Finch is unavialable. Why? Why couldn’t she let her make up her mind on her own?

And will MG or Ethan spill the beans?

So much for Josie just wanting to live a normal human life. You can take the girl out of the supernatural, but you can’t take the supernatural out of the girl!

 

Cleo is a Muse

The episode featured so many revelations about the characters particularly why Malivore was still hanging around sending monsters to the the school. Hope had a theory that Malivore was after Cleo, and she wasn’t wrong. 

The banshee revealed that Cleo is a muse, which Malivore wants in order to gain some inspiration to escape the prison world. 

 

Malivore is a Creep

Well, at least Malivore’s right hand man is. He’s been snooping around the school for the past several episodes ever since Landon returned from the prison world. 

When he failed to snatch Cleo, the monster snuck into Hope and Landon’s room and stole locks of their hair. Why? Does it think that they’re the key since they’ve both escaped before?

 

MG and Ethan Form Their Own Super Squad

MG and Ethan are the crime-fighting superhero duo that Mystic Falls didn’t know it needed. The two have formed a budding friendship ever since MG allowed Ethan to keep his memories of the supernatural. 

Ethan’s been really dedicated to stopping any and all crime in town (Matt Donovan much?), but unlike Donovan, he thinks the supernatural is pretty darn cool. 

After he saved MG from Finch in werewolf form, the former upgraded him to “partner” instead of “sidekick.” 

My only gripe with this friendship is that I’m scared it’s replacing MG’s friendship with Caleb, who was completely missing from the episode! 

 

What was your favorite part of the episode? Are you over the Malivore storyline or are you interested to see how Cleo will play into it?

And what do you think is up with the artifact Alaric found that connected to several historical figures?

Legacies Review – Is Elena Gilbert Making a Comeback to Mystic Falls? (3×09)

Legacies Review Do All Malivore Monsters Provide This Level of Emotional Insight? Season 3 Episode 9

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.”

All Rights Reserved.

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?
