‘Legacies’ season 2, episode 13 review: Methinks there’s more prophecy shenanigans to come

Well, that was a crazy couple of episodes, huh? Where are we now that Legacies season 2, episode 13 has aired? And is that prophecy fulfilled yet?

It’s been a doozy of a couple episodes revisiting Kai Parker, the prison world, meeting three new characters, and possibly saying a permanent goodbye to another. Not to mention all the bits and pieces of the prophecy that I’ve been trying to piece together. Is that done now?

Somehow I don’t think so, but I do think that enough pieces of it have seemingly been put together to maybe put us all off our skepticism. That golden arrow, two faced wolf, and the thing about love being the greatest destroyer of all are definitely coming back to haunt us in the last seven episodes. I am marking my own words there.

Anywho, here are all our Legacies season 2, episode 13 thoughts:

Welcome back, Jade

I’m glad that Dark Josie has a charitable side, cause Jade needed to turn her humanity back on. I’m definitely intrigued to see what she does with this second chance. And after that last scene with her, Wendy, and Diego taking up temporary residence in the old mill, I’m starting to think that there might be some tension brewing between Josie and Jade. The good kind, though, filled with sexy stolen glances and maybe even a little pining. I hope so, because Josie deserves at least a few happy times mixed in with all her disappointments.

Dark Josie’s unknown warpath

Okay, so, as far as this episode was concerned, Dark Josie played nice. So why were we so worried about this broken sand clock thing?

Is there a dark agenda that we have to worry about in the future? Is Josie going to wake up randomly dark some days, maybe even taking the Necromancer’s side? It’s definitely possible, and if you ask me, probable at this point.

Mr. Necromancer wants Dark Josie… that can’t be good

I understood why the Necromancer may have wanted to get his hands on the sand clock, but I figured it was more for the untapped power than for what it would do to Josie. But since Kai told him that the dark witch would make it back, it seems that maybe the Necromancer thinks he can talk Josie into being on his side? Either that or he has a plan to get his hands on her dark power. How much dark magic could still be in her after doing the spell to spring them all from the prison world in Legacies season 2, episode 13?

Also, how great was it to have Legacies best (so far) and TVD ’s greatest (arguably) villains sharing the screen in this episode? Watching Kai and the Necromancer working together was a wonder I didn’t realize I needed in my life. So much snark, so much anger. Entertaining doesn’t begin to describe it.

Hope needs to get a better poker face

Okay, so Klaus and Hayley definitely knew how to lie convincingly, and Hope really needs to learn how to lie a little better. Sometimes she’s better at it than others, but Kai definitely didn’t buy her ruse in Legacies season 2, episode 13, he just allowed her to think she was running the show. In fact, that’s kind of always been his modus operandi now that I think about it.

‘You really are a basic witch.’

That almost sounded like a Katherine line. Snarkiness aside, Alyssa Chang and Hope bonding in this episode was nice. They both carry so much guilt and sorrow around with them, I really hope that somewhere down the line they can find a way to be friends. Does Alyssa not allow herself friends as a punishment?

Because punishing yourself is definitely something Hope can understand. I would love for Alyssa Chang to slowly but surely find her way into the super squad, because she is a powerful ally if they can convince her to work with them and not against them.

I’m glad Raf is back… again

I’m happy to have Raf and Peyton Alex Smith back, but something is definitely up. I’m especially nervous thanks to that whole, “The wolf among you has many faces” thing from the prophecy. I think somebody (maybe the Necromancer? Maybe Raf’s father?) put the whammy on him before Legacies season 2, episode 13, and he just doesn’t remember it. Unless it was a hybrid or someone as powerful as an Original who can compel werewolves. Is anyone with that amount of power still alive (besides Kol, of course, but I don’t think we’ll be seeing him anytime soon)?

The tale of the golden arrow

So, was Dorian the hero who rose, per the prophecy? He was felled by the golden arrow, albeit not permanently. Did that fulfill the Sphinx’s promise? And what is it about the golden arrow exactly that allows it to kill a phoenix? Can it kill any supernatural creature? Is Hope susceptible to it?

I have a lot more questions than answers at this point, and I don’t think that’s about to change anytime soon. I mean, Legacies season 2, episode 13 was our last episode until the show returns a month from now. This is about to be a long four weeks.

Sebastian made up for his manipulations in last episode

I’m glad that Sebastian realized the error of his ways in the last episode. Like, I can kind of see that all that was a bit of a panic move on his part. He didn’t know Lizzie was about to poof into his prison. He was trying with all his might to stop her from going back into danger. It still doesn’t excuse his actions, but it at least explains them a little.

But he was still manipulative as hell, and I think he made amends by sending Alaric back with his daughters. A part of me hopes that he made it to Triad and escaped in time. But that ending with Lizzie in tears makes it sound like she still remembers him, so he couldn’t have gone into Malivore. I guess time will tell when it comes to all that. If Sebastian pops back up before the end of season 2, we’ll know he escaped.

Our phoenix definitely rose, didn’t he?

WOW! is all I can say. Those were some fiery wings. I was SURE that we were about to watch his tears have healing powers. Honestly, the wings and the flying is a much more believable phoenix power. Not that I don’t want Landon to have all the powers, but since it took him so long just to awaken his phoenix side, it should probably take him a little while to learn and master all his powers.

But yeah, if there was any doubt that Landon was going to be the hero to rise, that is definitely put to bed now. He and Hope are now co-heroes, even if she is a little more experienced at it.

Landon and Hope are learning

They both need to trust each other. Hope needs to trust that Landon can take care of himself at least a little. And Landon needs to trust that Hope is going to do what is right, even if that means he may not fair as well.

One thing that stood out to me by the end of this episode is that Hope is definitely more selfless than either of the Salvatore School’s namesakes. Both Stefan and Damon did awful things in the name of protecting Elena, and it’s honestly nice to see that Hope is better than both Salvatores combined. She put the Saltzmans’ well being over Landon’s in Legacies season 2, episode 13, and that should not be forgotten.

Bye bye, Kai.

Alaric got the ultimate revenge, and dispatched Kai from the Earth. Now, we do have a Necromancer running around, so is it possible that the Almighty Necromancer might find a future use for Kai Parker and want to raise him from the dead? As long as the Necromancer lives, I will never believe that anyone is truly dead.

But my guess is this is the last we will see of Chris Wood as Kai Parker for a very long time. At least until we get closer to the twins turning 22 and the Merge talk gets really serious.

So, wait, is the prophecy done?

Somehow, I don’t think so. We definitely saw some prisoners, and Alaric’s sins were visited upon the daughters in the prison world, aka “not here.” And we saw someone get felled by the golden arrow, but it was a temporary felling, and I’m not sure that Dorian really rose as a hero? Unless him overcoming the compulsion was enough to make him a hero. And, yes, time fractured and darkness overwhelmed, but have we met the wolf with many faces? And how about the “greatest destroyer of all is love” line? Was that supposed to be about Sebastian?

So, SO, many questions. And now we have to wait until March 12 to learn any of the answers. Hopefully we will get a whole bunch of new episode titles and descriptions to keep us guessing in the down time.

What did you think of ‘Legacies’ season 2, episode 13?
