The CW’s season two episode four of Legacies found Hope teaming up with Josie to help Lizzie after she was possessed by an evil Japanese spirit, thanks to a resurrected samurai warrior. Lizzie was front and center for two more important storylines from episode four: MG convinced her that her new love interest (the sexy vampire, Sebastian) doesn’t exist, and by the end of the episode she woke from a dream and declared she remembers Hope Andrea Mikaelson!
Up next, season two episode five airing on November 14, 2019. Episode five, “Screw Endgame,” was directed by Barbara Brown from a script by Brett Matthews and Thomas Brandon.
Legacies stars Danielle Rose Russell as Hope Mikaelson, Jenny Boyd as Lizzie Saltzman, Kaylee Bryant as Josie Saltzman, and Quincy Fouse as MG. Aria Shahghasemi is Landon Kirby, Peyton Alex Smith is Rafael Waithe, and Matt Davis is Alaric Saltzman.
The “Screw Endgame” Plot – ‘80s DECADE DANCE — As the Salvatore School prepares for its upcoming ‘80s-themed decade dance, Hope (Russell) and Lizzie (Boyd) find themselves trapped inside a never-ending labyrinth with a monster on their trail. Meanwhile, Josie (Bryant) and Landon (Shahghasemi) decide whether or not to take their relationship to the next level.
Elsewhere, MG (Fouse) turns to Kaleb (guest star Chris Lee) for advice on what to do about Sebastian (guest star Thomas Doherty), while Rafael (Smith) struggles to adjust to his life back at the school.
The Season 2 Plot:
Last season, viewers were thrilled to tap into a whole new passion for The Vampire Diaries / The Originals universe, when the third installment in the franchise launched with Legacies. Set in the Salvatore Boarding School for the Young and Gifted, Legacies told the story of the next generation of supernatural beings as they learn what it means to be special in a world that may never understand. Typically a school for vampires like MG (Fouse), werewolves like Rafael (Smith) and witches like twins Lizzie (Boyd) and Josie Saltzman (Bryant), the kids and their beloved headmaster Dr. Alaric Saltzman (Davis) were stunned to come face to face with a series of monster and creatures they had only ever heard of in myth and lore. A dragon. A gargoyle. The Headless Horseman.
The evil behind the real-life resurrection of these formerly fictional beings proved to have a horrifying connection to the school’s newest student, Landon Kirby (Shahghasemi). This led his first and only love, Hope Mikaelson (Russell), the school’s shining star, to sacrifice her place at the school — and in the world — to protect Landon from a terrible fate.
Season two will show us a world without Hope Mikaelson and all the chaos that goes along with it. All the while, Hope will be trying to find her way back to the school she has learned to call home and the friends she has learned to love like family. It will be filled with new monsters and more romantic and emotional surprises than ever.
