'Legacies' Season 1: It's highly unlikely that Lizzie Saltzman will find love anytime soon, not with that attitude
Lizzie may not be the worst character on the show, but so far she's had no redeeming qualities and it's something both MG and Rafael have been finally able to see.
When 'Legacies' comes from its fall break in the next two weeks, you can be sure of one thing - Lizzie Saltzman's (Jenny Boyd) love life will be upside down. Headmaster Alaric's daughter hasn't had the most luck when it comes to the boys at school and part of the problem has always been Lizzie. She's self-centered to the point where she doesn't care if she hurts anyone and everyone to get what she wants. She may not be the worst character on the show, but so far she's had no redeeming qualities and it's something both MG and Rafael have been finally able to see.
Halfway through this season she's had two flings so far - one with potential Ripper vampire MG and the other with werewolf Alpha Rafael. Both didn't work out for one reason - Lizzie refused to see that she wasn't the only one who had feelings. MG had always been absolutely swooned by how great Lizzie was and in his heart of hearts, he truly believed that she had a kinder side. He waited and pursued her for as long as he could but when he saw that she would toss him aside just for a minute in the spotlight, he had no choice but to let her go.
MG and Lizzie's relationship was more like a one-sided courtship, to be honest. He gave it his all and she merely took it all in till she needed it and then just tossed it aside. Lizzie was ungrateful when it came to MG - and when MG saw that he had been taken for granted all along at the party, it ended for him. After the twins' birthday party, MG didn't seem to have anything left in his heart for Lizzie. His facial expression said it all really when Raf came in and took her hand - when he was the one who had not just planned the surprise but also saved her face. It wouldn't really be a surprise if he had also planned the dance moves ahead of time, really!
As for Raf and Lizzie, the fling was shortlived. She asked him to be her date at the party because he met her status quo and MG didn't. Raf had just become the Alpha and it had seemed like a cherry on the cake for Lizzie to have him as her arm candy. She didn't realize that Raf was far from a superficial person. He had been caught up with his dead ex-Cassie as well as Josie, who he had previously kissed and had said yes to Lizzie to probably simply oblige the headmaster's daughter. When the two end up sleeping together, his guilt overtook everything else and he broke it off with Liz.
In both cases, Lizzie hasn't shown the slightest sympathy for anyone but herself and if her character doesn't get a drastic reality check - she may just end up being a bitter person with no friends or family, let alone a relationship. It is possible that MG would take her back if she did do a complete 360 knowing the forgiving and gullible person that he is, but there's a chance that by then, MG would realize that he had already moved on. There's also a possibility that MG wouldn't be interested in a relationship since he's gone on to the Ripper leagues. Lizzie's endgame will most likely be just finding herself.
Watch Lizzie make sense of it all when 'Legacies' returns with episode 8 'Maybe I Should Start From The End' on January 24 at 9/8c on The CW.
