Spoilers for 'Legacies' Season 2 Episode 16 'Facing Darkness Is Kinda My Thing'

When Season 2 of 'Legacies' finally revealed that the main villain was the Necromancer — a minor villain from Season 1 — many fans were surprised. As later episodes showed how the Necromancer went from going back to the Malivore pit last season to controlling the Malivore pit this season, fans were left intrigued.

However, as time went on, more viewers started getting annoyed with the Necromancer. The villain's grandiose speeches and accent often irritated viewers in addition to the Necromancer's final plan being as unclear as it was even before we found out that he was under the red hood.

In this week's episode of 'Legacies', after dark Josie Saltzman starts to take over the Necromancer's plan, he goes behind her and works with Alaric to help him bring back normal Josie.

He even said he would free Rafael Waithe and Alyssa Chang — whom he had killed and were now under his control — and could bring Landon Kirby back in exchange for Josie's dark magic.

As Hope Mikaelson helps empower Josie to defeat her darkness from within Josie's mind, Josie's sister, Lizzie helps to exorcise the darkness out of Josie once the latter succeeds in taking control of herself. The Necromancer then steps in and absorbs the dark magic.

It would all be well and good — Rafael and Alyssa were freed as promised — if Landon was brought back to life and if the viewers understood what the Necromancer's final plans were. However, fans want the villain to be done with.

One fan tweeted, "Is anyone else tired of the Necromancer yet, or is it just me?" Another wrote, "If the necromancer is the new powerful villain, I'm gonna riot!!" A viewer observed, "I’m so over the Necromancer can we be done with him?"

A viewer tweeted, "Why can't the Necromancer just leave. There’s a difference between good and annoying villains and there's both BUT he's just plain ANNOYING #Legacies."

Another wrote, "So the Necromancer just wants the dark magic for himself and then WHAT?! he doesn’t even seem like an incredibly evil person with vengeance. what Was The Reason? #Legacies."

While fans hope that the Necromancer would be thrown back in the pit soon, 'Legacies' has halted production on Season 2. So it may be a while before viewers get their annoyance with the Necromancer resolved.

'Legacies' airs on The CW on Thursday nights at 9/8c.
