'Legacies' November 1 episode 'Some People Just Want to Watch the World Burn' synopsis: Hope, Alaric, Rafael hunt for Landon
According to its synopsis, the second episode will see Hope hunt Landon, along with Rafael and Alaric
A spinoff from 'The Vampire Diaries' and 'The Originals', 'Legacies' released on The CW October 25 and has many reasons the franchise's lovers and new viewers should watch it. The first episode raised many questions about Landon Kirby (Aria Shahghasemi). Is he a vampire, a witch, a werewolf or another tribrid like Hope Mikaelson (Danielle Rose Russell)?
These questions can only be answered in the upcoming episodes. Meanwhile, The CW released a synopsis of the November 1 episode titled 'Some People Just Want to Watch the World Burn'.
The last episode established that this series, unlike the others, will be based on the young supernatural beings like Hope and Rafael Waithe (Peyton Alex Smith), who is Landon's foster brother. The only reason Landon stepped into Salvatore school was because Rafael is a werewolf.
Alaric Saltzman (Matt Davis), who runs Salvatore school, decided to take Rafael in as he is their kind and will need to learn to control his impulses in the outside world. After having explained the same to Landon, along with how they are going to make him forget all about the school and Rafael being a werewolf, Alaric had one of his students erase Landon's memory. But, unfortunately for Alaric and Hope, by the end of the episode we realize the spell they used to erase Landon's memory did not work and this could possibly be because he is a supernatural himself, although, this has not yet been established.
Landon steals a mysterious knife, which was shown to him by Hope at the museum before they tried erasing his memory, thereby revealing the spell did not work on him. According to its synopsis, the second episode will see Hope hunt Landon, along with Rafael and Alaric. This could possibly be personal for Hope as she opened up to Landon and shared a moment with him, right before he stole the knife and left. The most important question here is; if Landon is actually evil or if he is just a victim of certain circumstances.
The synopsis also indicated the Saltzman twins, Lizzie and Josie, will fail to keep themselves away from the public eye, given Josie's ex-girlfriend, Penelope Park (Lulu Antariksa), is doing everything to get her riled up. However, Josie, last time, set Penelope on fire after being hurt by her and we can only wonder what is going to happen to Penelope this time.
However, Shahghasemi had something to say about people assuming Landon is evil or supernatural. "I was thinking 'everyone's all mad at me for all this TV show because I stole a knife once and you guys threw me in prison when I have claustrophobia so who's the bad guy really'" Shahghasemi told ComicBook.
"I definitely think Landon is justified in his -- I hesitate to say -- retaliation cause I don’t' think it's as contentious as that, but I think Landon has ground to stand on. He's a human so he can't actually fight back," he added.
You can find the official synopsis, reported by ComicBook, below:
"THE SEARCH FOR LANDON -- Alaric (Matt Davis), Hope (Danielle Rose Russell) and Rafael (Peyton Alex Smith) hit the road in search of Landon (Aria Shahghasemi), who's sudden disappearance has raised some suspicion. Meanwhile, during an annual flag football game against Mystic Falls High, Lizzie (Jenny Boyd) and Josie's (Kaylee Bryant) plan to stay under the radar quickly gets derailed after Penelope (guest star Lulu Antariksa) gets involved. Quincy Fouse also stars. Michael Allowitz directed the episode written by Brett Matthews & Julie Plec."
We will have to wait and watch the next episode to see how the stealing of the knife plays out for Landon. Watch the next 'Legacies' episode titled 'Some People Just Want to Watch the World Burn' on The CW November 1.
