This week on Legacies, the twins have their sixteenth celebration with the surprising revival of their organic mom, Jo. So yeah, we had zombies this week, which MG was actually enthusiastic about. He additionally tried to impress Lizzie at her social gathering, which labored till Rafael turned up after which dumped Lizzie. Hope made amends with Rafael and, together with Penelope and MG, saved Josie from being buried alive by Jo (worst birthday ever). Penelope and Josie kissed. The twins then had to attract the vitality out of Jo, primarily killing her once more. Additionally, a necromancer confirmed up. Alaric wasn’t impressed.
Poor child: MG is slowly making his means into my coronary heart. He’s simply so lovable. He simply needed an opportunity to impress Lizzie. And this was the primary time she really gave him a good likelihood, or so it appeared till Rafael confirmed up. Talking which, I used to be not a fan of his this week. He knew he was going to finish factor along with her. I get that he needed to meet his finish of the deal or one thing, however he ought to’ve rotated and left when he noticed her having enjoyable with another person. As an alternative, he interrupted them solely to dump her in the midst of a crowd at her personal celebration. I’ve not been Lizzie’s largest fan up to now, however I felt so dangerous for her. She couldn’t even let her emotions out correctly surrounded by her classmates, numerous whom would have most likely preferred seeing her upset. I hope that’s the top of that relationship, it was solely sure to trigger drama between the twins anyway.
Kiss and make up: I discussed final week that I wish to see extra of Penelope, very glad that I received my want. I discover her a really fascinating character, particularly in her interactions with different folks. I’d like to see her and Hope in additional scenes collectively. Surprisingly, I really suppose these 2 would get alongside. I desperately need to know what occurred between Josie and Penelope once they had been collectively. Josie says Penelope dumped her, however why? Penelope clearly nonetheless has emotions for her.
A for effort: So, Hope tried actually onerous to make mates this week. The necklace for Josie was actually candy. It was really much like what Penelope did final week, solely fewer folks received damage within the course of. And I’m actually digging this blooming friendship with Rafael (don’t flip this right into a lovequadrangle or no matter). I get why he was upset, however I’m glad he moved previous it. Their dance was actually cute. I used to be stunned that apart from just a few mentions, we didn’t get to see something about Landon. However I assume possibly that might’ve overcrowded the episode. Maybe subsequent week.
That’s what I’m speaking about: My largest problem with the present thus far has been that this ‘freak of the week’ theme overshadowed the extra private stuff. This week, nonetheless, they discovered the proper steadiness. My favourite episodes will all the time be these that concentrate on the non-romantic relationships between characters, with emotional scenes and character growth. There was a lot of that for the twins this week. Josie, Lizzie, and Alaric received the shock of a lifetime when Jo was all of the sudden standing in entrance of them. Jo’s demise and the circumstances round it actually formed Alaric into the character we all know right this moment. I nonetheless bear in mind when he almost killed himself after the marriage. I’m glad he lastly received some closure (even if his coronary heart received damaged once more). And the twins had by no means even met their organic mom. I used to be stunned by their reactions. I believed the roles can be reversed, that Lizzie can be overjoyed and Josie skeptical. However I assume it type of is smart. As was acknowledged, Lizzie is similar to Caroline, so it is smart that she would see getting near Jo as a betrayal to her mother. Versus Josie, who typically feels alone, lastly had somebody she may confide all the things in, who appeared much like her, who she was named after. I’m shocked nobody thought of how traumatizing it might be for the twins to attract the vitality out of Jo once more. There’s no means it didn’t really feel like they had been killing her.
Whoopsie forgot about that: Don’t you simply find it irresistible when a present remembers a storyline from means again when, that you simply’ve lengthy forgotten. I believed the Gemini curse ended when the whole coven died, although I assume they didn’t all die, did they. I’ve to confess, whereas I bear in mind a lot of particulars from the primary four seasons of The Vampire Diaries, all the things after that may be a bit blurry. So I utterly forgot about that ritual that’s purported to occur when the twins flip 22. Now it is smart why Caroline has been absent all this time (good save, writers. This provides her the excuse to be gone for at the least 5 seasons). I do have one query. From what I learn on-line (once I appeared it up as a result of my reminiscence sucks) the ritual is that they merge their energy into considered one of them and the opposite dies. However the twins are each siphons. On their very own, they haven’t any energy. So how can they merge one thing that isn’t there? Somebody assist me out right here. Additionally, the twins simply turned 16. Are the writers actually going to pull this storyline out for five seasons (in the event that they ever get that many)?
Finest quotes: Jo: “How way back was that? You look somewhat… seasoned.”
Hope: “Household is all the time and eternally.”
Jo: “Are you cheerful?” Alaric: “I’m completely happy proper now, within the arms of my demon possessed child momma.”
