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.

Legacies - Since When Do You Speak Japanese? TV review

“Since When Do You Speak Japanese?” offers more Malivore drama when a samurai with a demon inside him is expelled only to have the demon jump bodies and begin to infect others around town. Eventually it makes its way to Lizzie (Jenny Boyd) forcing a tough choice for Josie (Kaylee Bryant) who saves her sister at the cost of taking another step down a dangerous path where Professor Vardemus (Alexis Denisof) is all-too-happy to lead her. In terms of season-long storylines, the most intriguing piece of the episode is Lizzy regaining her memories of Hope (Danielle Rose Russell) at the end of the episode begging the question just what will she do with that knowledge and how may it affect Hope’s eventual return to the Salvatore School?

Legacies - You Remind Me of Someone I Used to Know TV review

“You Remind Me of Someone I Used to Know” works as a callback to last season’s “Some People Just Want To Watch The World Burn” as once again the Salvatore School prepares for its annual game against Mystic Falls High, although the new headmaster (Alexis Denisof) has a far more open mind towards his students using their powers, in moderation, to compete (which won’t turn out well for one Mystic Falls student). The episode continues reversal of fortunes between the Saltzman sisters as Josie (Kaylee Bryant) continues down a darker path and Lizzie‘s (Jenny Boyd) bright outlook continues as she searches for clues about the mysterious Sebastian (Thomas Doherty).

Legacies - This Year Will Be Different television review

While some of the episode deals with relationship struggles between Landon (Aria Shahghasemi) and Josie (Kaylee Bryant), and MG‘s (Quincy Fouse) chances of wooing Lizzie (Jenny Boyd) getting shot down again with the arrival of a mysterious stranger (Thomas Doherty), much of “I’ll Never Give Up Hope” focuses on the girl that time forgot. While hunting a troll, Hope (Danielle Rose Russell) unexpectedly runs into Alaric (Matthew Davis) now the principal of Mystic Falls High School. While adamant about not putting a student in danger, something allows Alaric to trust Hope to help in taking out troll (which leads to Hope’s second-first meeting with another important person in her former life).

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.
