The CW's 'Legacies' premiere has left fans wondering who Landon Kirby really is
Landon (Aria Shahghasemi) was introduced in the show as a normal human being who was at Salvatore School because of his foster brother Rafael (Peyton Alex Smith ), a werewolf
After watching the premiere of The CW's 'Legacies', one question is stuck in everyone's mind, "Who is Landon Kirby?"
Landon (Aria Shahghasemi) was introduced in the show as a normal human being who was at Salvatore School because of his foster brother Rafael (Peyton Alex Smith ), a werewolf. However, as we reach the end of the episode, we realize that Landon is not a "local human" as the characters in the show assumed, but another "supernatural being" who might not do any good to the teenagers of Salvatore School.
In an interview with TVline, the show creator Julie Plec says, "The ending [of the premiere] is designed to make you really wonder what it is that Landon wants." She added, "What secrets is he hiding? And what danger does he represent for this group?"
The mystery is real because if he was a regular vampire, witch or a werewolf, someone from the school must have known but unfortunately, no one even treats him as a supernatural. They see him as a local human who is at the school to drop off his foster brother and will no longer remember anything he saw after erasing his memory. Fans, who are ardent followers of 'The Vampire Diaries' and its franchise, are stumped at the question "Who is Landon Kirby?" and "why did he steal the knife from the museum?"
However, we may find the answer of his true self in the next episode as Plec says, "The questions of why he stole the knife and why he lied are what drive the second episode. We start to learn what he knows, as well as how he feels about the fact that he’s suddenly being hunted by Hope Mikaelson."
We don't know yet whether Landon is truly evil or is it just a twist to introduce the real evil behind his act of stealing the knife. Plec says, "Is Landon the sweet, innocent local boy she thought he was? Or is he the harbinger of Armageddon? We’ll find out!"
Guess we will have to wait till the next episode of 'Legacies' to find out more about Landon and his part of the story. The next episode of 'Legacies' airs on November 1 on The CW.
