Pricey gods, can Legacies by no means disappear for 2 months ever once more? A lot has occurred in the true world (ugh) since December 2021, we practically forgot how insane issues had gotten within the TVD-verse.
Fortuitously, Hope was very happy to deliver us in control on all issues Lizzie: “I killed her, and he or she’s technically in transition,” Hope advised Professor Vardemus atop Thursday’s long-awaited return. “She’d be a heretic, a vampire who can be a witch, capable of siphon an limitless quantity of magic. Which feels like lots, so I did a sleep spell on her and I’m ready for her to starve.”
To begin with, Lizzie as a heretic is the stuff of desires. Moderately than making viewers endure by one more lengthy, agonizing adjustment interval, she awoke from the lifeless with confidence and management. Effectively, besides when she practically killed Vardemus earlier than working head-first into the door at vamp-speed. Aside from that, completely chill. She’s even rocking a leather-based jacket, which is actually half the gig.
Sadly, Lizzie couldn’t observe by together with her plan to kill Hope, and never for lack of attempting. Because it seems, Lizzie had Hope’s blood in her system when she died, making them sire-bonded besties. Vardemus was talking for your entire fandom when he stated, “I’m as shocked as you each that your dynamic might turn into even stranger.”
So whereas Lizzie has completely no need to assist Hope take down Aurora — a lot much less examine their new acquaintance Jen, a mysterious stoner who may additionally be an precise god — she actually doesn’t have a lot of a alternative. (“Going after gods and bitchy vampires? Exhausting go.”)
Talking of gods, we have to speak about Ben. And there’s lots to speak about. First, his backstory: One of the vital lovely creatures ever to grace The CW, Ben is an old-world demigod who as soon as stole energy from the heavens to save lots of his boyfriend. When these efforts proved unsuccessful, he bestowed the gods’ magic upon the individuals of his village… who instantly abused their presents, ensuing within the creation of monsters.
Much more essential than any of that, nevertheless, is the insane chemistry between Ben and Jed. Previous to this episode, the concept of Jed being something aside from alpha-level straight actually by no means crossed my thoughts. It’s now all I can take into consideration. I assumed I detected a slight spark was there throughout Ben’s retelling of his tragic previous, and that ultimate campfire scene was all of the affirmation I wanted, cemented by this line from the delicate demigod: “I’ve come to favor Ben. It’s easy, like Jed.”
Lest you suppose I’m utterly insane, right here’s an eyebrow-raising snippet (and picture) from the synopsis for subsequent week’s episode: “Again on the Salvatore College, college students are talking their minds, with out figuring out why, which makes Jed reveal a secret.” (A secret, you say? No matter might it’s!)
And whereas we’re addressing never-before-considered romantic connections, MG and Cleo? Is that going to turn into a factor? There’s positively a mutual respect there, as evidenced by their dialog after capturing the saving Ben from a pukwudgie, which Lizzie precisely known as “the ugliest emotional assist animal I’ve ever seen.”
I’ll say this: In any case that mess with Ethan, I’d love for MG to develop emotions for somebody aside from Lizzie. Apart from, Lizzie’s heretic storyline is already extra fascinating than any fleeting romantic entanglement.
Final however not least, let’s test again in with our boys in limbo. After a lot irritating mind utilization, the unlikely trio of Alaric, Landon and Ted solved a chunk of the Sphinx’s riddle by encountering a jinn behind the bar at a seedy underworld institution. (A jinni, on this present? What might presumably go proper?)
OK, we’ve got lots to debate. Are you digging Lizzie and Hope’s new dynamic? Did you additionally suppose (if even only for a second) that Hope’s “Klaus” key would result in a shock Joseph Morgan cameo? How do you are feeling concerning the introduction of gods into the TVD-verse? And I’m not utterly imagining the Jed-Ben factor, am I? Drop a remark with all your ideas beneath.
