'Legacies': Will Posie be a thing? Move over Hosie; Fans now want to see Penelope and Josie together
Fans have shipped Josie with both Rafael Waithe and Hope Mikaelson before, but this potential relationship arc between Penelope and Josie seems to excite them the most
The last episode of The CW's 'Legacies' left fans with an unexpected twist. Penelope Park, the designated mean girl of Salvatore School for the Young and the Gifted turned out to be the savior we all wished Josie Saltzman had. Fans have shipped Josie with both Rafael Waithe and Hope Mikaelson before (as Hosie), but this potential relationship arc seems to excite them the most. "Penelope is like Josie's protector — who knows maybe she feels she's the one that got away. I'm so excited for this love story," wrote a fan.
'Legacies' had told us that Josie and Penelope dated at some point, but we don't really know why the relationship ended. However, Penelope clearly still has feelings for Josie. After all, she risked the wrath of the headmaster's daughter to put Josie's name for the Honor Council. Fan theories suggest that they probably split up because of Lizzie, Josie's twin sister.
"For all we know Penelope breaking up with Josie was, in her mind, the only action she felt was right in order to protect Josie. I have a good feeling Lizzie did play a part in their break up judging by how controlling she is. Hopefully, they go more into it in future episodes," said a fan.
"After this episode, I'm thinking what happened is... Penelope and Lizzie didn't get along, Penelope didn't like Lizzie because of her treatment of Josie and Lizzie didn't like Penelope because well she's Lizzie, as a result, Josie was being torn between them and it was hurting her, so Penelope broke her heart intentionally so they would break up and Josie wouldn't have to choose sides anymore. Gah! Now I love Posie!" wrote another fan.
Some fans, however, have doubts about Penelope's good deeds. They think that she may actually be up to something and may want revenge for her heartbreak. "My suspicion is that Penelope is a pretty b****y person. I think overall there's no real tragic love story between her and Josie, just two kids who really aren't that good at relationships with a lot of their own baggage. That's not to say Penelope doesn't care about Josie in her own way, but I think it's a pretty immature way."
Penelope's character, from the beginning of this series, had been that of a self-centered snob, who didn't care about who she hurt to get her own way.
The show's plot also points towards a possible Posie reunion. In the last episode, Raphael makes out with Lizzie, after Josie and he shared a passionate kiss in episode four, 'Hope Is Not the Goal'. While Lizzie was unaware of the kiss between them, she did know that Josie had a thing for him. It is possible that Josie will find the solace she needs in Penelope, after feeling betrayed by both Raph and Liz. Keep your eyes peeled — the sparks between Posie may just turn into a full-fledged romance.
'Legacies' airs every Tuesday on The CW.
