Legacies (S01E02) “Some People Just Want to Watch the World Burn”

This week gives us some new threats. One supernatural and the other a bunch of not so nice human teenagers. Lizzie (Jenny Boyd) and Josie (Kaylee Bryant) disagree on how to handle the game. We still don’t know what Landon (Aria Shahghasemi) is or how he escaped that bus without a mark on him and M.G. (Quincy Fouse) is playing with fire.

Game Day 

Lizzie and Josie are told by daddy dearest that they have to tank the game so they don’t draw unwanted attention to the school. Alaric (Matt Davis) also informs the girls that he will not be attending the game because he has to go find Landon. Trust me when I say, the twins are not having a good day. After some fat shaming courtesy of Penelope (Lulu Antariksa), the big game begins. The opposing team is brutal, especially Dana (Katie Garfield), who pokes and pokes Lizzie the whole game. This gets old and the kids decide to use their supernatural abilities to give the other team a disadvantage. Josie points out that Alaric wants them to lose for a reason. Then they decide to play fair, but still win. This is not ok with Josie either, who uses a spell to make Kaleb (Chris De’Sean Lee) drop the ball and lose the game. While doing the whole “Nice game” thing, Lizzie gets in a right hook to Dana’s face. I am surprised she held out that long.

The Search For Landon 

Rafael (Peyton “Alex” Smith) invites himself along for the search with Alaric and Hope (Danielle Rose Russell). They find Landon… and a fire breathing human, who happens to be responsible for the burned up bus passengers. She wants the knife that Landon has and she wants it bad. At first they aren’t sure what she is. Hope and Rafael team up to fight said creature and stab her in the heart. Done and over right?? Not so much… because she turns into a full blown dragon. Landon and Rafael are told to run to the car while Hope and Alaric take on the now bigger fire breathing threat. Hope has a death spell with her and the dragon turns back into human form who Alaric stabs in the neck. After that finally takes down the dragon, Alaric then confronts Hope about the black magic. She obviously brought that spell to put Landon down for good. That would be part of the not so nice impulses Alaric is trying to avoid with these kids. She is the daughter of Klaus Mikaelson after all.

Penelope Helping (?) M. G. 

Penelope noticed that M. G. has a thing for Lizzie and said she wants to help. I am not sure I believe that. Does she have a nice bone in her body? Watch this girl M.G., she did say that she’s evil while trying to seduce you.

Dear Hope 

Landon and Rafael hit the road instead of  waiting at the car. Landon leaves Hope a letter explaining why he ran and continues to run. He said that the secrets The Salvatore School holds are safe and that he is sorry for hurting her. Time will tell if she believes him and if she will go after him. The end of the episode shows a gargoyle statue come to life. It doesn’t look very happy either.
