Legacies – This Feels a Little Cult-y – Evaluate

TV Shows

This week on Legacies, Josie and Hope go off to avoid wasting Lizzie from a cult, then get indoctrinated themselves. They handle to get themselves out of it, pandas are concerned, however one thing will get unleashed. Finch and Jed play a sport of pool to find out who ought to be alpha. Alaric and Dorian seek for MG and discover him with a wendigo. 

Oh look, they’re speaking: You already know, that is essentially the most display screen time Hope and Josie have shared since season 2. They’ve barely interacted all season. It’s wonderful what can occur when Hope’s scenes don’t revolve round Landon. I’m hoping the writers will maintain this up for the remaining 2 episodes of the season. It simply made no sense to me that they barely interacted after Hope went into Josie’s thoughts to avoid wasting her final season. Then once more, there are quite a lot of selections these writers have made that make no sense. Like Lizzie, a principal character, having been absent prior to now 2 episodes. As soon as once more, to work on herself. How about we try this on-screen subsequent time. 
There’s a line and also you crossed it: Why does this present all the time insist on taking it one step too far. I imply, the entire cult factor was already bordering on a bit an excessive amount of. Then the pandas occurred. I do know that this present insists on being gentle and humorous however as a substitute, it simply makes it appear to be they’re making an attempt too arduous. And, look, it was humorous for five seconds, then it was simply embarrassing. 

Undecided how I really feel: I don’t assume any interplay has ever left me as conflicted as those between Jed and Finch. He was being a jerk and deserved to be put in his place. However I additionally didn’t assume Finch was able to be alpha, she’s solely been a part of a pack for a really brief whereas and regardless that she’s been a wolf most likely longer than most, she’s basically very new at this. However, I actually needed to see her kick his ass. Which is why the sport of pool was extremely disappointing. I used to be hope for a real werewolf struggle. I additionally hate that she let him win. I get it, however I simply really feel like feminine characters and up doing that so much in conditions like this. It’s not a trope that I’m a fan of. Sidenote, vampires get stronger as they become older. Does the identical rely for werewolves? Do they get stronger the extra they flip? This may’ve been fascinating to discover. 

An enchancment: So at the least Alaric didn’t leap to conclusions once more with MG. It looks as if he’s studying from his errors (took him lengthy sufficient). Although, the jury remains to be out. He’s recognized MG for some time now. I need to see if he does the identical for a scholar he doesn’t know as nicely. Dorian bothered me this week however I need to blame Alaric for this. Alaric skilled him. Dorian’s angle in the direction of vampires comes from that. Sure, he does have a foul historical past with rippers (Stefan) however, whereas coaching with Alaric, he might’ve simply dissuaded Dorian from that notion. He didn’t. In truth, Alaric was type of an ass in seasons 7 and eight. I do know Dorian is at Mystic Falls Excessive now, however it actually bothers me that these 2 individuals have been instructing younger vampires. I do know we haven’t seen a lot of the workers (if there may be one) however I really feel like there ought to’ve been at the least one vampire trainer that these youngsters can go to once they’re struggling. It doesn’t appear to be that’s the case. 
Silver lining: I do know it should appear to be I hated this episode. I didn’t adore it that’s for certain. And I’m fairly certain I might’ve flat out disliked it if it wasn’t for the interactions between Hope, Lizzie, and Josie. They really are the center of the present. Their interactions are all the time the spotlight of an episode for me. And the primary cause I haven’t stop this present but. Expensive writers, please cease separating them. And cease making an attempt so arduous. They don’t want loopy gimmicks to be humorous, every time these three work together it’s all the time one hilarious line after the opposite. 

Finest quotes: Hope: “You already know, life is actually only a collection of disappointments, in order that’s a greater lesson than Shakespeare.” 
Lizzie: “We don’t fear about dicks right here.” 
Hope: “Oh no, I don’t belief you since you’re a fraud.” 

That’s it for this week. Verify in once more subsequent week for an all-new evaluation and let me know within the feedback what you considered this week’s episode.
