There’s nothing quite like a Mikaelson family reunion. On the latest episode of Legacies, we were treated to a long-awaited gathering of our favorite characters, all united in their efforts to help Hope regain her humanity. But now the question remains: will this transformation last?
The setting for the reunion, New Orleans, added an extra layer of nostalgia. It felt like stepping back into the world of The Originals, with music filling the streets and vibrant colors painting the scene. It’s safe to say that we wouldn’t mind more trips to New Orleans on Legacies!
The reintroduction of Rebekah, Freya, Marcel, and Kol was expertly done, allowing us and Hope to spend quality time with each character. Although Kol didn’t get much screen time, it was refreshing to see Rebekah’s patience in her interactions with Hope, even in the face of teenage angst.
And let’s not forget the power of Marcel’s role in saving Hope. There was something special about their connection, and it was evident in the way Hope let her guard down and even reverted to a childlike state when she commented on Marcel’s suit. It gave us hope that her humanity could truly prevail.
The reunion wouldn’t be complete without the Mikaelson signature phrase, “always and forever.” However, as satisfying as it was to hear, it left us wanting more. It would have been wonderful to have an entire episode dedicated to the reunion, rather than just a few scenes. But perhaps that’s a testament to how much we’ve grown attached to these characters.
While the reunion was the focus of the episode, we also saw some intriguing developments with Aurora, Lizzie, and Jen. Aurora’s slight hesitation in causing further harm to Ben hinted at personal growth, while Lizzie’s despair over losing Aurora raised questions about her allegiance. And as for Jen, her motives remain unclear, leaving us wondering if she’s playing her own game or genuinely trustworthy.
Moreover, Cleo and Kaleb’s date in Atlanta provided a lighthearted moment before the looming threat. However, Cleo’s vision of a grim future added a sense of urgency. Will Hope be able to maintain her humanity? Did Ben manage to awaken his father? And what role will Jen and Lizzie play in the upcoming events? These are the questions that keep us on the edge of our seats.
