'Legacies' season 1 episode 8: Hope and Landon finally reunite and we are totally in love with Handon again
Hope and Landon finally found their way to each other in the latest episode and needless to say, it was as unexpectedly emotional and sweet.
Everything about the 'Legacies' midseason premiere exceeded our expectations, but most importantly, it made us fall back in love again, thanks to our much awaited 'Handon' reunion. Hope Mikaelson and Landon Kirby finally found their way to each other in the latest episode and needless to say, it was as unexpectedly emotional and sweet.
In the teasers for this episode earlier, it had seemed like Landon was in actual trouble and that Hope and Alaric would be walking into something extremely gruesome. After her magical bracelet lit up towards the end of episode 7, one couldn't do much but prepare for the absolute worst - especially after Hope screams at Alaric that if she doesn't go to help him, he may die. Turns out Landon was in trouble alright, but not in the way we expected. Landon actually met his mysterious mom Seylah and although she ended up taking him captive first, the story twists when Seylah goes on to sacrifice herself to Malivore in order to save Landon.
After she breaks it to him that she couldn't possibly be his mother in the way he wanted, she goes out to talk to Alaric and confesses that she was doing whatever she could to keep him out of harm's way. In the meantime, Landon and Hope have some alone time. He tells her that he wrote her letters during the days that he was away from her and when she asks him what he wrote in them, he coyly admits that he couldn't stop thinking about their kiss when he last left the school. Hope jumps in to steal a kiss and as things start heating up, Alaric walks in on them, breaking the party.
While it may be easy to just dismiss their feelings for each other as nothing but teen infatuation, this is 'Legacies' and 'The Vampire Diaries' universe we are talking about. Love has, in the past, been enough reason for massive bloodshed and warfare. It has also been at the cause of a lot of sacrifices. So while this power couple looks solid right now, there's a huge chance that one of them is about to start a war.
If Malivore keeps sending monsters like it has this season, it is entirely possible that Hope will definitely get involved. The latest episode has already proved that Hope will go above and beyond to keep Landon safe and sound. She isn't afraid to show her worst side and even kill if they tried to hurt a hair on his head. Landon definitely has some sort of supernatural significance that we don't know yet and until it shows itself, it is entirely possible that Hope will be taking matters into her own hands - with Alaric's help, of course.
For now, these two lovebirds are making up for lost time and fans are most certainly thankful for it. Catch Landon and Hope on 'Legacies' next episode 'What Was Hope Doing In Your Dreams?' on January 31 at 9/8c on CW.
