Spoilers below for the most recent episodes of Legacies, so be sure to catch up before reading on.
Hold on to your butts, Legacies fans. Next week's Season 1, Episode 7, "Death Keeps Knocking On My Door," is the midseason finale, aka the last episode of 2018. Actress Kaylee Bryant (Josie Saltzman) told CinemaBlend it's going to be a doozy:
Speaking of people wanting more, Kaylee Bryant said the December 13 episode will provide more insight into what Landon is up to, after heading to New Orleans to meet a Mikaelson "family friend."
In her mind? Why can't we go to New Orleans and see it? There are supposed to be location nods to The Originals ahead, and I was hoping that meant a trip to New Orleans. Guess those nods will come from other locations.
After Episode 7, Legacies is taking a short break, but fans will get more in 2019 when the rest of the 16-episode season continues. Kaylee Bryant told me there's a lot for fans to look forward to:
Kaylee Bryant also previewed connections ahead between the monsters of the week and the overall Big Bad:
At this point, Episode 6 just aired. It was hugely emotional for the Saltzmans, but especially Josie, and also included a clue to the Caroline mystery -- which is connected to The Merge. Episode 7 is meant to be set on Remembrance Day, an annual tradition in Mystic Falls that Vampire Diaries fans may, well, remember.
According to The CW's synopsis, in Episode 7, Hope (Danielle Rose Russell) hits the books to learn more about the latest creature to arrive to the school, and things take a dark and twisted turn, leaving her to confront one of her darkest fears. Meanwhile, Alaric (Matthew Davis) attempts to help Rafael (Peyton Alex Smith) cope after his past comes back to haunt him.
So we should be learning more about Raf's past, and watching Hope confront one of her darkest fears. What would that be? And how is the latest creature to arrive at the Salvatore school -- apparently The Necromancer -- related to Landon's knife mystery and the overall Big Bad?
Legacies viewers will find out what we find out, and be left on some kind of cliffhanger, next Thursday, December 13 at 9 p.m. on The CW. The show will then return in early 2019, along with many other midseason shows.
