Thursday’s episode of Legacies launched a monster so lovable, it would truly give Beebo a run for his cash.
The pint-sized creature, which turned out to be a gremlin with a serious angle downside (and a potty mouth to match), conveniently appeared whereas the Super Squad was deciding which monster to summon within the hopes of gaining key intel on Malivore’s subsequent transfer.
This week’s episode additionally amped up the strain between Hope and Lizzie, regardless of Landon’s futile makes an attempt at brokering peace between the warring witches. And their new gremlin pal did not make issues any simpler, first by pushing Lizzie into the pool (what is that this, Dynasty?), then by impersonating her and telling the entire faculty that Hope has scabies. Rude!
Upon realizing that the gremlin feeds off disrespect (and that they have been giving it an “all-you-can-eat buffet”), Lizzie and Hope agreed to place their variations apart. Unfortunately, the little troublemaker was one step forward of them, capturing Cleo and utilizing her personal disrespect to grow to be super-sized. Needless to say, it took a lot of reluctant respect on each Hope and Lizzie’s components to carry the overgrown monster again all the way down to measurement. (Did its gross last type remind anybody else of the child (*9*) from that South Park Christmas episode, seen here? No, simply me? OK.)
Despite the looming menace of that skull-masked creature nonetheless lurking within the woods, all was nicely that ended nicely this week. Hope and Lizzie even exchanged a real hug, earlier than becoming a member of Landon for a screening of — what else — Gremlins.
Also price discussing…
* I’ve been questioning which of Alaric’s buddies has been internet hosting Josie whereas she attends Mystic Falls High, and we lastly bought our reply: She’s staying with Dr. and Mr. Salvatore! After strolling his daughter dwelling from faculty, Alaric remarked, “I’m amazed at how completely they rebuilt this place.” And when he tried to take off, she bought him to stay round with this engaging provide: “Aunt Elena’s going to be dwelling quickly from her shift, and she or he’s planning making some old Salvatore household recipe.” During their emotional father-daughter bonding second, she additionally informed him about her budding romance with Finch, to which he replied, “The final individual I would like providing you with relationship recommendation is Damon.”
* Speaking of life at Mystic Falls High, MG unintentionally uncovered his vampire powers to Ethan, solely to find that Sheriff Mac left him with a provide of vervain capsules earlier than skipping city. So MG was compelled to play the ready sport, throughout which he and Ethan struck up an unlikely friendship, bonding over comedian books — in addition to their mutual emotions of displacement and inadequacy. It was all very candy.
* Also candy? Whatever’s taking place between Kaleb and Cleo. I particularly appreciated that she principally “not now, Dana”d him when he first flirted along with her within the library. “Ask once more when our lives are usually not in jeopardy,” she stated. (Finally, a personality on this show whose hormones do not cloud their judgment!)
* I beloved when Lizzie laughed off the existence of genies. It’s too dangerous she has no reminiscence of that episode, as a result of it was considered one of my favorites.
* So a lot enjoyable stuff occurred this week, I barely even processed that last twist. This mysterious artifact that Alaric is researching has apparently been handed down by means of ages, from Albert Einstein to Rasputin to Napoleon Bonaparte. And as that flashback to 1933 Belgium suggests… Hitler? It was quite a bit.
