'Legacies': Fan theory suggests one of the Saltzman twins may die soon in CW series
There could be a possible merger of the Gemini twins and it'sentirely possible that one of the two participants may die. Guess who is from Gemini coven? Josie and Lizzie Saltzman.
The CW's vampire series 'Legacies' has just kicked off and from the looks of it, there's danger already looming in the near future. According to a fan theory, this danger could be the merger of the Gemini twins where it is entirely possible that one of the two participants may die. Guess who is from the Gemini coven? Josie and Lizzie Saltzman.
The Gemini witches have a ritual to select a leader and the results are often disastrous. The Gemini coven is a faction that was introduced in 'The Vampire Diaries' and then carried over to 'The Originals' where they've played crucial roles in the future of the supernatural beings of both shows. They are originally from Portland, Oregon. They are known for their penchant for cloaking spells which can drop anything under the radar and their unique means of selecting a leader from a set of twins.
Called The Merge, the ritual takes place when the set of chosen twins reach the age of 22. They battle it out to come out on top and whoever does manage to survive, leads the coven into the future. However, Josie and Lizzie are the only two survivors of the Gemini coven - so there are no other options for a leader but them. The ritual combines their powers to one source and the stronger one of the twins absorbs all the powers from the other. The weaker counterpart does not always survive the ancient spell used in The Merge. The ritual is only done when there's a major celestial event, like an eclipse. If you remember in 'The Vampire Diaries', the Parker twins performed the ritual and it didn't go down very well.
Josie and Lizzie are in their late teens in 'Legacies' as of now, but a theory suggests that they do indeed have to go through the merge which is why Caroline has been so absent from the scene. Caroline is off looking for a cure, a way to stop the ritual from happening. She couldn't possibly lose any of the twins as it would absolutely break Alaric, their dad. It would also be an interesting twist to the plotline, though.
Since Lizzie has a bipolar disorder, it would be a great addition to the story then it would explore magic, family dynamics, and mental illness all at the same time. Josie is the one with the big heart and we know just how strong their relationship is. Will Josie make a sacrifice at the time of The Merge and let Lizzie keep her life force? These two girls are pretty powerful as we saw in 'The Originals' finale, where they manage to siphon the old magic into Klaus and out of Hope.
'Legacies' airs every Thursday at 9/8c on CW.
