Legacies - Let's Just Finish the Dance television review

The Miss Mystic Falls Pageant will bring Hope Mikaelson (Danielle Rose Russell) and Lizzie (Jenny Boyd) closer together as Lizzie coaches the Tribrid to win the pageant (which nearly ends in a Carrie-level meltdown), but events surrounding the night will fracture several other relationships. Penelope (Lulu Antariksa) leaves the school, but not before breaking Josie‘s (Kaylee Bryant) heart one more time, and creating chaos by disrupting the relationships between Hope and (Peyton Alex Smith) and Landon (Aria Shahghasemi) by informing Landon about what Hope has been keeping from him and continuing her efforts to drive a wedge between the Saltzman sisters.

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. After discovering Landon talked MG into communicating with his absentee father (Quincy Fouse) who has not spoken to his son since he became vampire, Alaric (Matthew Davis) becomes concerned as well and enlists the help of Kaleb (Chris De’Sean Lee) while Hope and Emma (Karen David) attempt to get some answers out of a disoriented Rafael who can only remember fragments of the last 24 hours.

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.

Legacies - We're Gonna Need a Spotlight television review

“We’re Gonna Need a Spotlight” offers a twist as the latest magical creature to be drawn to a mystical artifact at the Salvatore Boarding School for the Young & Gifted turns out to be a harmless unicorn. However, the mind-warm parasite which hitched a ride on the magical horse turns out to be any but as it infects several of the students starting with Hope Mikaelson (Danielle Rose Russell), slowly lowering their inhibitions until they might become susceptible to removing the Malivore artifact from the school. The conveniently-timed school talent show allows for a humorous backdrop pushing the characters outside their normal comfort zone as well (and allows for an excuse for the headmaster to be absent as things start going crazy).

Legacies - Maybe I Should Start from the End television review

The first, and possibly only, appearance by Landon’s mother (Ayelet Zurer) fills in some of the remaining blanks about Malivore and Landon’s (Aria Shahghasemi) connection to it. Heading in as back-up when Landon gets into trouble, Hope Mikaelson (Danielle Rose Russell) and Alaric (Matthew Davis) are able to help convince Seylah than Landon is indeed the son she gave up years ago (while also learning the dark secret behind Landon’s birth and why he is tied to artifacts of the Hell dimension). “Maybe I Should Start from the End” also reveals the existence of a shadowy government agency protecting the pit while also secretly taking out magical creatures on the down low.
