Legacies - There's Always a Loophole TV review

The First Season finale of Legacies features an invasion of the Salvatore Boarding School for the Young & Gifted by Triad Industries, which could only have been executed by the safeguard plans already put in place by Alaric (Matthew Davis) and a big hero moment for Hope (Danielle Rose Russell) in leaving the school’s protection to her friends and rescuing Landon (Aria Shahghasemi) from Malivore. Both look to have large implications on the show’s sophomore season.

Legacies - I'll Tell You a Story TV review

“I’ll Tell You a Story” answers several questions leading into next week’s season finale. While Hope (Danielle Rose Russell) works through her feelings for her boyfriend using a magical prism (which offers most of the more lighthearted scenes from the episode), Landon (Aria Shahghasemi) finally gets some answers as Ryan Clarke (Nick Fink) reveals the truth about Malivore which was once a sentient being created to absorb dragons… and who is the father of both Ryan and Landon. While initially skeptical about both Ryan and his tale, Landon is won over by his story and makes a fateful decision to help restore his father to life.

Legacies - The Boy Who Still Has a Lot of Good to Do TV review

When no one can find Rafael (Peyton Alex Smith), Landon (Aria Shahghasemi), or MG (Quincy Fouse) on the night of the full moon Hope Mikaelson (Danielle Rose Russell) begins to freak out.

Legacies - There's a Mummy on Main Street television review

The latest episode of Legacies offers a road trip (featuring a montage of fun moments among the group packed into a minivan), the return of agents from the mysterious Triad Industries, Kaleb (Chris De’Sean Lee) being a team player, a mummy (which turns out to be one of the cooler monsters of the season so far), and a cathartic release between Hope Mikaelson (Danielle Rose Russell), Josie (Kaylee Bryant), and Lizzie (Jenny Boyd) as old secrets and resentments boil up to the surface. The last of these helps explain Lizzy’s attitude to Hope as Josie is forced to come clean about a mistake from her past that while damaging to everyone involved is also kind of sweet when put into context.
