Legacies showed up with a lot of twists. Some were nice surprises and others were heartbreaking.
Hope (Danielle Rose Russell) was determined to find out who the imposter was in Landon’s (Aria Shahghasemi) body. I was inclined to believe Wade (Elijah B. Moore), but Hope needed more proof.
She performed some of the magical tests that Lizzie (Jenny Boyd) had done on Rafael and added some of her own into the mix. For a split second, it seemed like maybe he could be Landon, but I didn’t believe that.
It turns out he was a Gollum that Cleo (Omono Okojie) created. It was part Landon’s remains and part Hope’s memories. We’re still not clear what Cleo is. She came out of the artifact, but that’s about all we know. It’s not even clear she’s entirely evil. She did try to help Hope by giving her Landon back, even if it wasn’t the real Landon, and she desperately tried to be friends with her. Cleo has a point when she says if Hope wasn’t so tied up in saving Landon, she might have seen who she was. I was over her being wrapped up in saving Landon, even if that was typical Mikaelson fashion.
It wasn’t too big of a surprise that the monster that had been following them around was Landon. Once we knew that the Landon that was at the school wasn’t him, it was pretty easy to put together.
I really liked Cleo. I thought she was a great addition. I had no idea she would turn out to be one of the monsters. Thinking about it now. It was a little odd that she had no family, but then again considering how many people Hope has lost and how many people Elena lost in The Vampire Diaries, it’s not entirely too hard to believe.
I do like the twist of Cleo being trapped for centuries. And her speaking Italian to Leonardo da Vinci was priceless. What a way for her cover to be blown.
She also came close to turning Hope full tribrid. I’m not sure I’m ready for that just yet. Hope’s a little young for that next step, but it will be epic when it finally happens.
The twist I didn’t like was MG (Quincy Fouse) wiping Ethan’s (Leo Howard) memories. I love this bromance. It’s been so much fun. This storyline was way too short-lived. Even know it was probably always the way it was going to end.
MG came clean about everything supernatural, and Ethan got the crazy idea to kill himself to become one. He even took MG’s ring so he couldn’t follow him. MG almost killed himself, trying to save Ethan. Ethan has definitely learned his lesson. I don’t know why MG had to compel him. It was heartbreaking as he wiped away Ethan’s memories and said he would miss him, E-ssential, his superhero name. RIP to this bromance.
It was really nice to see Josie (Kaylee Bryant) with her powers back. I love seeing the powerful witch in her. Even better, she was going after what she wanted, Finch (Courtney Bandeko). Sparks literally flew when they kissed!
It was an interesting dynamic putting her back with The Necromancer (Ben Geurens), but they played well off of each other. He even gave her good advice. Ben is hillarious as The Necromancer, no matter what form he’s playing him. I hope this is not the last we see of him.
It was pretty intense and funny as The Necromancer brought back the elderly man and dropped the grenade. Alaric (Matt Davis) tried desperately to put the pin back in it, and The Necromancer threw it in the coffin, and Josie contained the blast with magic. Just a typical day fighting monsters.
