'Legacies' season 1 episode 12: A townwide quarantine threatens to expose our supernaturals
Yes, the episode features what is considered the greatest danger in the world of ' The Vampire Diaries' - locals finding out their true identities
When 'Legacies' returns with a brand new episode next week, it brings trouble - the really dangerous kind.
Episode 12 returns with the Saltzman twins and the rest of the gang as they set out on a mission to figure out what Malivore really wants. The episode synopsis also confirms that the urn ultimately does go missing. Not wanting to compromise another Malivore artifact, Alaric, Hope, the twins, Kaleb, Dorian and Emma set out to find it. By now, we've figured out that Malivore has three keys that keep it contained and with the knife gone, we don't really know what is the next key.
So far, we had seen the jinni come to retrieve the urn and she failed - so clearly someone's done something unsavory in episode 11. Otherwise, how would something that was kept so secure that even someone like the Shapeshifter couldn't figure out its location, be stolen? The mind-controlling parasite in episode 11 definitely seems to have got them good. A unicorn whose mission in life is to steal the urn and control all mind on the school grounds sounds like quite the problem for sure.
Now Malivore itself is just a dark pit that can erase all memory of a supernatural creature but the facility that houses it, the Triad ( a hateful group that hunted supernaturals into extinction), has a lot of pull. It also doesn't seem too far fetched to speculate that these monsters that come knocking every week to the school are actually manipulated into coming there by the Triad and not Malivore. The show hasn't officially confirmed anything but it seems fairly plausible. In episode 10, when Lizzie has the time traveling experience, one of her realities have revealed that the Triad actually hunts the supernaturals - so it does make sense for them to house Malivore and throw in whatever monster doesn't fit their liking.
Meanwhile, Lizzie takes it upon herself to make everyone's life a little more dramatic. She takes aim at Hope for all the past spring breaks she's ruined. Is she talking about the times her parents had to potentially leave to help out Klaus, Hope and the family? They did make a couple of appearances on ' The Originals'. However, when they see what they are up against, they decide to put their differences aside. Yes, the episode also features what is considered the greatest danger in the world of ' The Vampire Diaries' - locals finding out their true identities. When they get to their destination, they find out that there's a townwide quarantine which could potentially expose them. This episode is directed by Julie Plec, so expect some really great story arcs.
'Legacies' season 1 episode 12 airs on Thursday, February 28 at 9/8c on The CW.
