'Legacies' Season 2: Hizzie fans rejoice as Episode 4 ends with Lizzie remembering 'Hope Andrea Mikaelson'
'Legacies' has been slow so far in moving things along with the writers peppering plenty of tiny clues at the end of every episode — clues that don't make any sense at this point. However, this week's episode finally made a breakthrough — Lizzie Saltzman remembered Hope Mikaelson.
The episode was a tough one for Lizzie, who has been proud of her mental health journey, but on learning about Sebastian, she breaks down. When she is sleeping, she sees flashes of Hope, and wakes up exclaiming, "Hope Andrea Mikaelson".
The two characters have had a tumultuous relationship. When Season 1 of the show began, Lizzie hated Hope, for reasons neither Hope not the viewers knew. Later, Lizzie says that she hated Hope because Hope spread stories about Lizzie's mental health struggles.
Then, Hope in a touching moment, tells her that she is more like Lizzie, her being the daughter of Klaus Mikaelson, and from that point, their relationship changed and started the "Hizzie" fandom. So, it doesn't come as a surprise when "Hizzie" fans were overjoyed at Lizzie being the first one to remember Hope.
It was especially the flashes of Hope that Lizzie sees, where Hope is seen smiling — and not in an antagonistic manner — and that Lizzie smiled when she said Hope's full name, that made the scene more special for fans.
One fan tweeted, "LIZZIE REMEMBERS HOPE.... #HIZZIE ENDGAME I SAID WHAT I SAID #LEGACIES [sic]." Another fan added, "Lizzie is obviously hope's soulmate but not necessarily in a romantic way. they just made that very clear with that ending so guess we win either way hizzie nation #legacies [sic]."
Fans are also excited that next week's episode will see Hope and Lizzie trapped together in what looks like the 80s as they fight each other to sacrifice themselves.
A fan tweeted, "WE GOT LIZZIE REMEMBERING HOPE TODAY AND NEXT WEEK WE ARE GETTING A WHOLE HIZZIE EPISODE WE WON HIZZIES WE WON #Legacies."
'Legacies' airs on The CW on Thursday nights.
