'Legacies' season 1 episode 14: Hope finds herself in hot water in the middle of Miss Mystic Falls as Roman returns
Miss Mystic Falls always brings with it some complication or the other and this time, Hope Mikaelson is in the centre of it all
The legendary Miss Mystic Falls pageant is making a comeback this week on 'Legacies' and as usual, there's trouble brewing right around the corner. Ever since it's inception on 'The Vampire Diaries', the pageant has always brought in some sort of complication to the story - remember when Klaus and Caroline really got the groove on in the series and turned the rest of the world upside down? Well, this time, it appears that it will be Hope who will be in the center of it all.
In the promo pictures, Hope wears an almost exact replica of Caroline's dress from 'The Vampire Diaries'. While it is obvious that this couldn't possibly be because of budget constraints, it looks like 'Legacies' is paying a tribute to Klaroline and 'The Vampire Diaries' series finale anniversary through Hope's pageant outfit. A gift from Klaus to Caroline, the dress would definitely be special to Hope. Perhaps Lizzie loaned it to Hope since they are such good friends now? Possible.
The promo for the episode shows that Hope isn't too stable and only Lizzie, her newfound friend is able to see it. She seems to be holding in some anger and being the powerful Tribrid that she is, Hope's anger will definitely wreak havoc. Poor Landon seems to be the one who will be on the receiving end of the whole outburst - a pretty predictable trait, considering she's a Mikaelson. She may love him, but she isn't that far off from her gene pool.
To make matters worse, Hope's love interest from the past, Roman shows up in this episode. Roman and Hope did not part on good terms in 'The Originals' - Roman's mom had a huge part to play in killing Hope's mom Hayley (she literally tried to yank her heart out), and he had lied to her consistently. He did seem like he was troubled about his mom's revenge plot but at the end of the day, he was just as much at fault as his mother. All this aside, Hope did care about Roman quite a bit. They were buddies and classmates and eventually sparks flew between them that led them to run away together. But as fate would have it, it turned out, unfortunately, that it had been Roman's plan all along to get Hope alone and kidnap her.
His return, understandably, makes Landon uncomfortable. He himself is dealing with the repercussions of what happened in the last episode so clearly, this could be a trigger.
It is possible that Hope's anger rises from Landon's insecurity or the fact that Roman's alive and well while she's all alone in a boarding school with no family. Either way, she may possibly hurt Landon, bringing her to the realization that she indeed, is not okay. This could be the start of a crazy new arc for Hope.
