'Legacies' Season 2 Episode 3: Sebastian's elusiveness and the mysterious air about him hint that he could be a Salvatore ancestor
In this week's episode of 'Legacies', Lizzie continued her search for Sebastian, the mysterious man she met in the previous episode. We suspected something was up only when Lizzie interacted with him, but we did not see what was coming. No wonder he warned her not to look for him.
MG also says he will help Lizzie look for the elusive Sebastian and her first guess is that Sebastian might be a monster from Malivore, like a Yeti or a Kraken. So she keeps out of the annual flag football game between Salvatore School and Mystic Falls High so she can do her reading and figure out more about the guy she has a crush on. MG (bless his heart) says he will help her and there may have been a moment of reflection for Lizzie as she realized he was "a great something".
In the middle of the game, Lizzie spots Sebastian out of the corner of her eye and decides to retake her position as the quarterback for the Salvatore School's team to impress him. It all goes well until Mystic Falls High's QB, Ethan, takes the ball out of Josie's hand. When Sebastian goes away, Lizzie runs behind him, with MG hot on their heels.
After a little banter where Sebastian confirms that he is a "vampyr", Lizzie tells him "some of my best friends are vampires and the two share a passionate kiss. When MG sneaks in on them however, it looks like Lizzie is kissing an invisible man, or worse, a fragment of her imagination. So what is the case here? Is Lizzie losing control despite her attempts over the summer to be her best self?
Our guess is that Sebastian is a long, long, lost Salvatore relative -- perhaps the first Salvatore to come to America. We know there were vampires in Mystic Falls before the Salvatore brothers (the Mikaelsons, for example) and that could explain who turned him. But we don't think he's a creation of Lizzie's mind or a ghost. Perhaps Sebastian is desiccated, having not had blood for years. But when the blood from the skull structure spilled as MG and Kaleb were moving it in the first episode of the season, just enough of it could have reached Sebastian down in a crypt somewhere for him to have enough power to project himself onto Lizzie's mind.
According to Sebastian, Lizzie reminds him of someone he used to know. Either they look really alike, or we have another doppelganger situation on our hands. We're sure to learn more about him in the upcoming episodes, but let's hope that in the meantime Lizzie is okay. MG might suspect something is going off with Lizzie with what he saw and might try to delicately approach the issue with her.
'Legacies' airs on The CW on Thursday nights.
