Legacies - You Can't Save Them All television review

“You Can’t Save Them All” wraps up the Kai Parker (Chris Wood) storyline far quicker than expected, while also returning the characters trapped in the prison world back to reality (well, most of them anyway). While Dark Josie (Kaylee Bryant) works on a way to get them out of the prison world, Kai shows up at the school under the pretense of being an old friend of Alaric‘s (Matthew Davis here to help. By the time Hope (Danielle Rose Russell) sees the villain for who he is, Kai has managed to put both those in the prison world in jeopardy as well as leading Landon (Aria Shahghasemi) into a trap, forcing Hope to choose who to save.

Legacies - What Cupid Problem? / Kai Parker Screwed Us television review

“What Cupid Problem” and “Kai Parker Screwed Us” take place simultaneously. “Kai Parker” focuses on events inside the prison world where Alyssa Chang (Olivia Liang) banished Josie (Kaylee Bryant), Alaric (Matthew Davis) and Lizzie (Jenny Boyd). Sebastian (Thomas Doherty) isn’t the only familiar face the family comes across as the episode explores how Alaric dealt with problem students in the past as well as offering the first appearance on the show of the girls’ uncle Kai Parker (Chris Wood) who apparently will be sticking around to cause more trouble throughout the season. Several mind games later, one character manages to escape the prison, although it will be up to a suped-up evil Josie to get the rest of the characters home.

Legacies - This is Why We Don't Entrust Plans to Muppet Babies TV review

It’s a pair of minor characters who take center stage in “This is Why We Don’t Entrust Plans to Muppet Babies” when an invisible Qareen is set loose on the grounds slowly stoking the insecurities of the students and feeding on their growing discord. The only one who can see the creature is the often-overlooked Wade (Elijah B. Moore) who, to the surprise of everyone in the school, is actually a faerie. The rising bitchiness between all concerned makes fighting the beast difficult but when Landon (Aria Shahghasemi) and the rest of the student body put their faith in Wade everything turns out sunshine and rainbows. Well… not everything.

Legacies - I Couldn't Have Done This Without You TV review

“I Couldn’t Have Done This Without You” offers three separate storylines. One focuses on Hope‘s (Danielle Rose Russell) return to the Salvatore School and the awkwardness of trying to find a bit of normal with Josie (Kaylee Bryant), Landon (Aria Shahghasemi), and others. The awkwardness with Josie is helped through the use of magic in dealing with the hourglass Josie has been pouring dark magic into for most of the year. That object is also noticed by the Necromancer (Ben Geurens) who sees it as a way to restore and embolden his own powers. While things may not be back to normal by the end of the episode, perhaps the Josie, Landon, and Hope have found the start of a new normal heading into the second-half of the season.

Legacies - This Christmas Was Surprisingly Violent TV review

By the end of the show’s mid-season finale things will be pretty much back to normal. Before that, Lizzie (Jenny Boyd) will drag Landon (Aria Shahghasemi) back home, Rafael (Peyton ‘Alex’ Smith) will meet his biological father, and Christmas will come in October for the Salvatore School when Krampus comes knocking turning everyone except Hope (Danielle Rose Russell) into a group of merry fools. To save the day, Hope will have to rely on unexpected help from Clarke (Nick Fink) and Santa Claus (Jeff Pillars). It’s a goofy end to a half-season that resets things (mostly) back to normal with both Hope and Alaric back in school, Hope and Landon together, and the pit closed.
