Legacies Review- Another Prison World (3×04)

Legacies Season 3 Episode 4 Hold on Tight Review

Last week I wondered if I was being too harsh on Legacies. I was worried I was just nitpicking, and that I was making it out to be much worse than it is. After watching the fourth episode of the season, I no longer feel that way. It is actually that bad.

Somehow a musical episode was less cringy than this one was. It’s difficult to defend Legacies, especially in comparison to The Vampire Diaries or The Originals, after an hour of bizarre plot choices and even worse special effects. The shot of Landon/Malivore opening his mouth to absorb the Necromancer will haunt me for weeks.

The issue with the series stems from poor writing and what appears to be a low production budget. A lot of the dialogue this season feels off, but the actors are doing really well with what they’ve been given to work with.

This season might feel so disjointed because of the pandemic since they’re trying to wrap up a lot of storylines at once. But, it’s become increasingly hard to watch.

The timeline feels inconsistent. Have Hope and Landon really been together that long? I don’t know if the math adds up on that, especially considering Landon dated Josie for about four months sometime in between there.

On top of that, Hope and Landon’s relationship itself has been inconsistent. The show keeps toying with the idea of breaking them up but never sticks to it. We keep seeing how they’re bad for each other in one episode, and then the next is spent memorializing their perfect relationship and featuring a big milestone for the two of them. So, which is it? Should we be rooting for them? Even though they never work on any of their issues and it has only become more apparent how incompatible they are together?

Until the series takes a firm stance on their relationship, it’s hard to become invested in what happens to it. And he keeps “dying”. It’s become so repetitive and dull.

Also, I found it very upsetting that Landon only died right after he and Hope have sex for the first time. She finally gets to experience this big, vulnerable moment only for it to be ruined immediately after. It’s exhausting watching her find the happiness and peace she so desperately wants only for it to be taken away time and time again. At a certain point enough is enough.

It would be nice to see Hope’s happiness last for once.

Things are looking better for the twins than they are for Hope.

Josie has made the decision to transfer to Mystic Falls High School to get a break from the supernatural world for a bit. That should be really good for her, and we’ll probably meet her new love interest there.

She was able to use magic this episode successfully but is still dealing with the guilt of her actions as Dark Josie. It’ll probably be hard to see Ethan every day but with time and space from the Salvatore School, she’ll be in much better shape.

Lizzie finally came to terms with her feelings for MG, only for her to catch MG and Alyssa kissing in the hallway. Obviously, that sucks for her to see, but the way she reacted to it was really healthy. She didn’t freak out or concoct a crazy scheme to get him back. She accepted her mistake in waiting and is going to continue to work on herself in the meantime.

She was super self-aware when talking to Josie about how she held herself back from MG for so long because of her own insecurities. She’s on the right path right now. Alyssa and MG will fizzle out soon anyway. Then, a healthier, more secure Lizzie can make her move.

Stray Thoughts:

  • It’s strange that we never got to see a scene of Hope and Josie reuniting after Hope woke up from her coma. She was only put in that state because she went into Josie’s mindspace to rescue her. This feels like a weird moment to skip over.
  • I love MG.
  • Hope and Landon really are unbearable as the Necromancer said. Do you really have to kiss while sinking into Malivore?
  • The Kaleb and Jed rap was a bit strange, but I really enjoy the dynamic between the two of them. Hopefully, there will be a lot more of that this season!

Legacies Review – The Musical Episode is Here! (3×03)

Legacies Season 3 episode 3 salvatore: the musical review

After months of waiting, the Legacies musical episode has finally arrived. The pandemic slowed down its production, but we still got to see Salvatore: The Musical after all.

There’s a ton of issues to be had with the episode, but the musical concept isn’t really one of them. It could’ve been a lot more cringe-worthy. I’m glad they didn’t choose to have the characters just burst out into song at random moments like they do in the Riverdale musical episodes. It was nicely contained to the stage.

The episode picks up where we left off with Hope and Landon fighting after Rafael leaves. Hope is having a meeting with the school’s guidance counselor which turns into couples therapy when Landon arrives. It’s become so difficult to be invested in their relationship. They’re constantly fighting and have proven over and over again how wrong they are for each other. Why is the series so desperate to keep these two together?

The monster-of-the-week turns out to be the guidance counselor himself. He has the ability to warp everyone’s memories and can essentially do anything he wants. His master plan turns out to be… putting on a musical. Terrifying.

It’s sort of unclear what his true motivations were. We knew he was supposed to just be a distraction for the Necromancer’s larger plan, but did they just happen to pull the one nice guy out of Malivore? Why did he concoct an elaborate plot to help Hope? Not sure if I missed something there. I know he mentioned meeting Klaus at one point, but that doesn’t explain why he’d to put on this musical.

I really enjoyed the subplot of MG being the only one to discover that he’s the monster, only to forget as soon as he walked away from him. Quincy Fouse is a gem.

The poor guy was just trying to do the right thing, but now his life is in danger. Alyssa’s a total wildcard. I actually thought she cared about MG. Maybe she has some plan to defeat the Necromancer that MG is unwillingly a part of. But, then again, does she really owe him anything? She feels totally isolated from the Salvatore School. Would she even want to help them?

As far as nostalgia goes, the episode had plenty. I’m sure long-time TVD fans enjoyed references to the previous shows. We even got a voiceover from Caroline Forbes herself! That was completely unexpected. I wish the show would go more in-depth about what exactly is going on with Lizzie’s brain chemistry instead of making it sound like a mysterious, looming threat. But, the sentiment of the letter was really sweet, and it was good to be reminded that Caroline still exists somewhere in the Legacies universe.

Lizzie was right, only she could be the one to play her mother in the musical. She understands where her insecurities stem from and was able to deliver a great performance. Caroline’s song was perfectly fitting for the character.

Best Tweets About ‘Salvatore: The Musical’ on Legacies

It was hilarious that only Jed auditioned for Stefan and that the rest of the school auditioned for Damon. But honestly, on Jed’s behalf, I’m kind of offended that they made him be Team Stefan. Even Paul Wesley hates him! At least now I have another valid reason to dislike Landon after he agreed with Jed about how Stefan is “the anchor of the story”.

Kaleb was a fantastic choice for Damon. He did such a good job invoking the creepy stare Ian Somerhalder has perfected over the years.

Josie was super cute as Elena. The song where she’s trying desperately not to think about Damon is so damn spot-on. What’s also eerily spot-on is the complete erasure of Bonnie Bennett from the musical. We don’t even know who played her!

She was never treated properly on The Vampire Diaries, and now she was completely ignored in the musical. Come on, writers. Do better.

There weren’t too many Easter eggs for fans of The Originals in the musical, but the final song draws on the classic “always and forever” mantra. The song was actually really adorable. It was a great closing number, and Danielle Rose Russell gave a great performance. However, it’s so frustrating that the big Damon and Elena song was used to further Hope and Landon’s relationship.

Earlier in the episode, Landon has the realization that he wants to fight for Hope and writes this song using parts of the letter Klaus wrote to Hope before he died. This is something Hope showed him in private, and yet he chose to use it for lyrics in the school musical. Already, that’s a bad move. But on top of that, he explicitly goes against her wishes and puts the song in the musical after she told him that it hurt her. What the hell?

Why would anyone root for that? Hope has lost so much in her life and struggles with the death of her father everyday. How could her “epic love” use something so personal against her. It doesn’t matter if he had good intentions, or that she came around at the end. She stated a boundary, and he crossed it, again. It’s infuriating to watch. It makes absolutely no sense that they got back together in the first place, but especially after that.

Originally, I just disliked the pairing because I thought they didn’t have much chemistry. But now, it’s clear that Landon is a terrible match for Hope and that he doesn’t care enough about her to respect her wishes. How many times are they going to break up before it sticks?

Stray Thoughts:

  • No one cares about Alaric and his new girlfriend. Why would she even like him? He breaks her boundaries and ignores her constantly.
  • It sucks that another one of Josie’s love interests is leaving. I always found the age difference between her and Jade to be alarming, but it does rub you the wrong way when all the queer love interests keep getting the boot, you know? Hopefully, this season we finally get a long-lasting queer romance.
  • Alyssa Chang is a  far more interesting competitor than the Necromancer.
  • Isn’t it a bit strange for Josie to talk about how she doesn’t understand Elena as a character? She knows her. They have a relationship, she could always ask her why she chose what she did.
