'Legacies' season 1 episode 8 sneak peek teases a strange reunion for Landon
In a shocking turn of events, Landon has found his mysterious mum who seems pretty unaffected to see the son she gave up years ago.
With 'Legacies' mid-season premiere just hours away, CW has released a new sneak peek into episode 8, 'Maybe I should Start at the End'. Our boy Landon Kirby, for a change, isn't clueless here - he's found what he was looking for all along and is minutes away from engaging in a conversation with someone very important from his past. In a shocking turn of events, Landon has found his mysterious mum who seems pretty unaffected to see the son she gave up years ago. The strangest things happen in New Orleans!
In the teaser, Landon is seen sitting in a quaint little coffee shop scribbling away. "You must have a serious caffeine addiction. You've been here every day this week," the hostess tells him. "I just like coffee..." Landon replies awkwardly and gets up to go, "I should get the next one to go". The hostess realizes that she must have made him uncomfortable and quickly says, "I'm not complaining just a little worried about you." At this point, Landon starts getting up from his seat and she continues, "This is embarrassing. You've been my best customer all week and I don't even know your name."
"Landon..." he answers while moving towards her. "That's a beautiful one," she says looking nostalgic as she writes his name on a paper cup. "I'm pretty sure you gave it to me," Landon retorts.
Now the previous teasers of the episode have already revealed that Landon is in some sort of trouble in New Orleans and Hope and Alaric have to rush to the city to rescue him. While we didn't know what got him into the mess, this teaser definitely hints to the fact that it was this reunion. There's no telling if Landon's mum is one of the good guys or a pawn sent by Malivore but one thing we can be certain of is that their meeting definitely shakes things up in Landon's quiet life.
This meeting is also somehow significant in Alaric and Hope finding out about Landon's magical lineage. It is confirmed that he is going back to Salvatore School for the Young and the Gifted in this episode. Maybe they find out that he's the key to stopping Malivore as we had suspected all along?
The promo had also shown, what appears to be a dragon in passing. There's also a lot of fire in the promo like we had seen in the second episode when Hope and Alaric had a face-off with the dragon disguised as a human. It may be an absolute stretch but what if Landon's mom is the dragon? The one in the second episode could also turn into a woman. We cannot wait to find out!
'Legacies' episode 8 'Maybe I Should Start From The End' airs on January 24 at 9/8c on CW.
