'Legacies' Season 2 Episode 9: Is Sebastian really a bad guy or is there more to his story?
We can't help but think that Sebastian might be back later in the season.
With the return of 'Legacies' after its winter break for the second half of Season 2, we also saw the official return of Alaric Saltzman and Hope Mikaelson to the Salvatore School as the headmaster and student respectively.
One of his first moves back in the school was to make sure that vampire Sebastian was fit to be one of the students at Salvatore School, after learning that Ryan Clarke (posing as Vardemus) waived the admission procedures for the centuries-old vampire.
In doing so, Alaric enlists Landon Kirby's help as he is the only student who can return from the dead should Sebastian murder him. Under the pretense of a tour of the school, Landon then takes Sebastian around and spends time with each faction — werewolf, vampire and witch.
Though Landon was nervous about Sebastian around the werewolves, a round of dodgeball with the werewolf faction goes well. Next, Landon takes Sebastian to the common area where witch Alyssa Chang spills a bowl of blood on purpose.
While Dorian yells out "code red", most of the vampires and werewolves leave the scene. However, MG is tempted and as he rushes to slurp up the blood, Sebastian stops him and tells him to breathe until the urge passes.
So far, so good for Sebastian. When they go to the witches, Alyssa Change uses a crystal ball to read Sebastian's mind. She tells him that he is afraid of people finding out what he really did, that he won't be allowed to stay at Salvatore School. But Sebastian really loses it when she tells him that he thinks Lizzie is too good for him and that she knows it as well.
Sebastian is, however, subdued and Landon tells Alaric that the vampire is no more dangerous than anyone else at school. But Alaric is still wary and we see that he is reading a book about vampire pirates, with one chapter titled, "Sebastian the Merciless".
Later, Sebastian tries to feed on a woman jogging at night but Alaric stops him. At this point, Sebastian goads Alaric, even telling the poor headmaster that he's "had your daughter all over the school."
We don't know what Sebastian's fate is after that. But Alaric tells a heartbroken Lizzie that Sebastian chose to leave. We are all but certain that this is not true. Perhaps Alaric has Sebastian locked in a vervain-filled room — much like Stefan did to Damon in Season 1 of 'The Vampire Diaries'. We can't help but think that Sebastian might be back later in the season.
'Legacies' airs on The CW on Thursday nights.
