There might still be four episodes scheduled to the next season of Legacies, however, since the series is on a hiatus, for now, episodes 16 functioned as the season finale. The incident delivered twists of a conventional orgasm and the drama. Even show founder Julie Pec accepted of this surprise final episode, telling a buff on Twitter, “It’s a fun accidental season finale with a good cliffhanger, so it will be temporarily satisfying until we’re able to go back and finish the rest.”
Therefore, while this was not assumed to be the stage where we return to the end of the second season of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals spinoff, today seems as good a time as any that there is a long fracture before we receive the past couple of episodes. If you captured episodes 16 and wish to be certain you got all of the information rights, then read on as we dive into what went down to Legacies’ temporary season 2 ending.
Hope gave Josie a Legacies lesson on believing in fairy tales
Students at Salvatore Boarding School for the Young and Gifted have been terrorized by a possessed Josie Saltzman (Kaylee Bryant) for a while, now. After she demanded that the merging ceremony with her twin, Josie (Jenny Boyd), be moved up to their 17th birthday, it seemed like the corrupted teenager might become far too powerful for her good. Thankfully, Hope (Danielle Rose Russell) had a plan to put an end to that. After the merging ceremony was completed, we learned that Hope traveled into Josie’s subconscious, which presented itself as a fairy tale land.
Once there, Hope met a rude pig (literally), who later revealed himself to be … none other than Josie in disguise. It seems that once Dark Josie took over control of the young woman, Josie’s consciousness found a way to hide from her malevolent forces. Josie explained all the lessons she had internalized from hearing fairy tales when she was a child, including her fear that having strength would intrinsically result in her being taken over by evil. Hope, in turn, told Josie there was no need for her to continue to live according to those outdated rules, and that she could possess her strength without becoming corrupted by it.
Then, Dark Josie personified as an archetypal fairytale villainess, crashed the pep talk. With her newfound personal strength, Josie was able to defeat her dark self and regain control of her body. After her ordeal, she imbued a coin with her siphon powers, until she feels ready to wield it properly.
Alaric made a deal with the Necromancer
Meanwhile, outside of Josie’s brain, things were still in total disarray following Lizzie and Josie’s merging ceremony. Lizzie played dead to remain under the radar, while Hope tried to deal with Dark Josie, while Rafael (Peyton Alex Smith) was continuing to live with the guilt of not only becoming the puppet of the Necromancer (Ben Geurens) but also killing his brother, Landon (Aria Shahghasemi).
Itching to make use of Dark Josie’s powers without having to deal with Dark Josie, herself, the Necromancer was putting together a scheme of his own. He made a deal with Alaric (Matthew Davis) and Lizzie: Lizzie would cast a spell transferring Dark Josie’s powers to the Necromancer and, in exchange, the Necromancer would bring back everyone who had died under his watch. This meant that Rafael would no longer be under the Necromancer’s control and that Landon would be resurrected.
Without a better plan, the two agreed to temporarily join forces with their ghoulish foe. Lizzie performed the spell and the power was transferred, resulting in a happy ending for all involved. Just kidding! In a move that surprised nobody, there was one crucial twist to the Necromancer’s plan.
The shocking cliffhanger to Legacies’ finale
The fantastic news: Rafael along with the pupils who’d expired and were making puppets of their necromancer were brought back to existence, in keeping with all the Necromancer’s deal. The bad news: Even following the transport of Dark Josie’s energy was finish, Landon remained lifeless. And, that was not all. After helping Josie conquer her ego, Hope still had not regained consciousness.
Just how did all that happen? Regrettably, Landon’s continued departure might be a result of not reading the fine print. Even though the covenant spell the team created using the Necromancer supposed that whatever conditions were agreed upon the need to be followed, Rafael made a mistake. When he attempted to add Landon from the revival deal, he requested the demon, “Can you bring Landon back, too?” The Necromancer reported he could, that wasn’t a lie. He might have attracted Landon back however, he decided not to do this, and, due to Rafael’s bad notion, Landon remained lifeless.
In terms of Hope, we are going to have to wait until the next event to determine she’s yet to recover consciousness. It is likely that she trapped inside Josie, or that, when Josie moved her forces Hope became trapped there. While we are dying to know what is going to happen to the show’s protagonists, we do need to acknowledge that Julie Pec was correct: This did prove to be a cliffhanger worthy of a finale.
