'Legacies' Season 2 Episode 10: Alaric compared to Malivore after fans learn he's no longer the 'good guy'
After all, we have known Alaric for ten years. Since the first season of 'The Vampire Diaries', he was mostly the voice of conscience for others
This week's episode of 'Legacies' revealed a shocking truth. Alaric Saltzman (Matthew Davis), when he thought misbehaving students could not be redeemed, would send those students to the prison world which was created by his daughters when they were five years old - the same prison world where Kai Parker(Chris Wood) is trapped.
At the end of the episode, Alyssa Chang as part of her revenge performs a spell to transport Alaric, Josie and Lizzie to the said prison world and trap them there. There, we also learn that Sebastian did not just merely disappear - he was sent to the prison world by Alaric.
Viewers were disappointed to learn that Alaric would do something like this. After all, we have known Alaric for 10 years. Since the first season of 'The Vampire Diaries', he was mostly the voice of conscience among others.
One fan tweeted, "Lizzie nor Josie are saints, one is forever setting shit on fire and the other has cruel tendencies but they never got sent away. What makes Alaric, the worse judge of character, think he has any right to do this to other people’s children? Throw the whole man away #legacies." Another fan wrote, "The fact Alaric sent problematic TEENAGERS to the place where he knew there was a psychotic heretic and yet he thinks himself as a good guy... I had to laugh #legacies."
Some viewers compared Alaric to Malivore, the big bad monster in the show. One fan wrote, "I can't believe this parallel between Alaric and Malivore - what makes it scarier is that Alaric does it all on his own will - versus Malivore's programming. I. am. floored. #legacies."
The Saltzman's trip to the prison world has also clued in fans with events that happened before on the show. Before the fall finale, we also met a sphinx who predicted as to what is to come. One line said, "The sins of the father are visited upon the daughters here. And not here." When it came out, no one suspected Alaric to be the father in question. However, after this episode, fans think they have deciphered the first part of the puzzle.
One fan shared, "'The sins of the father are visited upon the daughters here. And not here.' Here and not here because it’s the Salvatore house in another dimension. This is about the twins." They also wrote, "'When time fractures darkness overwhelms' is now obviously about the sand timer thingie breaking and Josie going dark."
'Legacies' airs on The CW on Thursdays at 9/8c.
