'Legacies' season 1 episode 12: It looks like the Malapocalypse is here!
'There's a Mummy on Main Street', this episode features a generous amount of bugs, a scary potential bug king and a whole lot of bug bites.
If you've got entomophobia, you might want to watch the upcoming episode of 'Legacies' with caution because from what we can tell, this episode will definitely be like no other. Called 'There’s a Mummy on Main Street', this episode features a generous amount of bugs, a scary potential bug king and a whole lot of bug bites.
After the urn goes missing in the last episode, thanks to the parasite that climbed into Alaric's drink (eww!), took over his mind and made him throw it away into the night like he didn't need it. We don't see who picks up the urn but it is certain that if monsters were sent to retrieve it over and over again, it won't stand a chance alone on the school grounds. 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 but not before something really scary starts happening in Mystic Falls.
It all starts with Dorian and Emma's date. The promo reveals that they are at a picnic at the porch, sweetly talking to each other when Emma spots a bug. She shudders and says, "I detest creepy crawlies!" Dorian swats it off the railing and for a second there, looks like a total hero but not for long. Another shot shows that their entire spread for the date is crawling with bugs and understandably, Emma lets out a deafening scream.
In the meantime, Josie, Lizzie, and Hope are at the school grounds when Josie exclaims that she's been stung by something. When we see the wound, Lizzie says what we've all been thinking, "EWWW!" The three look up at the sky to see where it came from when the promo cuts to Alaric screaming "Run!" with the sound of intense buzzing in the air. These bugs, as we later find out are like the Plags and they are the harbingers of whatever monster comes next, as Dorian gravely points out.

The promo also reveals that there's also a creepy, mummy lookalike monster that steps into town. It would make sense for a mummy to bring about its bug sergeants as it comes to take whatever it needs from the school. And that begs the question - what does it want? With the urn gone and the knife taken, is it after the third key? What or who is the third key that is stopping Malivore from taking over? The end of the world has begun and it is up to our supernaturals to stop it. Is it just me or have the monsters just gotten worse?
'Legacies' season 1 episode 12 airs on Thursday, February 28 at 9/8c on The CW.
