'Legacies' season 1 episode 15: Landon finds out secrets from his past as he and Hope struggle to make amends
Episode 15 definitely tries to answer the million dollar question (who is Landon?), sets the story arc for the next season and furthers the love triangles at Salvatore School for the Young and the Gifted.
With just two more episodes to go for the 'Legacies' season finale, the stakes are getting higher and higher and the mystery is nowhere close to getting solved. Episode 15, 'I'll Tell You a Story' definitely tries to answer the million dollar question (who is Landon?), sets the story arc for the next season and furthers the love triangles at Salvatore School for the Young and the Gifted.
The promo for the episode reveals that Landon is safe after his capture last episode after MG's mom turned out to be a part of Triad Industries. Last we saw him, he was in a dark room with the suspicious Agent Clark and Mrs. G, with no idea about where he was or why he was there. If you remember, Landon didn't remember the whole Seylah episode from Kansas, like Alaric and everyone else because Clark throws her into Malivore.
Hope, however, does, but in order to keep Landon's sanity intact, she decides not to tell him about the whole ordeal. But it looks like it may not be a secret for long - the episode synopsis points out that Landon learns about secrets from his past. He also learns that there's a monster out there looking for him. Is he Landon's father by any chance? We'll have to see.
Meanwhile, Hope is dealing with the aftermath of her fight with Landon from the last episode. After Roman Sienna, Hope's ex shows up at the school, Landon can't help but be jealous, but unfortunately, it doesn't play out well for him. He shuts out Hope and leaves her feeling more alone than ever. The two make up eventually, but the cracks clearly remain.
This episode will also definitely set the tone for next season's potential big bad, the Merge. Before Penelope leaves the school in the last episode, she makes it a point to tell Josie that she may be in potential danger. Penelope had used enchanted pens to spy on everyone's journal, including Alaric's and she finds out, through the headmaster's diary notes that something called The Merge was coming and that Jo was in danger.
This episode, Jo finds out the existence of the Merge - the ancient Gemini coven ritual that requires one of the two twins to absorb all the power and life force from the other to emerge victorious. The ritual itself doesn't make sense right now because Jo and Lizzie Saltzman are the only two remaining Gemini witches in the world with no Coven to lead. Additionally, they are also Siphoners with no powers of their own. But clearly, showrunner Julie Plec has written something we clearly cannot see.
'Legacies' episode 15 airs on Thursday, March 21 at 9/8c on The CW.
