Legacies: The Salvatore School Is Under Attack In Intense Season Finale Trailer

Spoilers ahead for the penultimate episode of Legacies Season 1, called "I'll Tell You a Story."

Only one episode is left in the first season of Legacies. The third show in the Vampire Diaries franchise did more than just pick up where the previous series left off, and it's been a wild ride so far. Hope Mikaelson, the Saltzman twins, and their various friends, enemies, and love interests have gotten in no shortage of trouble throughout the first season, and the trailer for the finale proves that they're going to be in their most dangerous situation yet. The Salvatore School is under attack! Take a look:

"I'll Tell You a Story" was an intense episode that revealed the truth about Malivore, saw the Saltzman twins come to magical blows, and set Hope on a path to try and rescue Landon, who had been kidnapped by his brother on the mission to release Malivore and save Landon's friends. The episode ended with a band of baddies breaking through the gates of the Salvatore School, armed to the teeth. Notably, some had crossbows set to fire a wooden stake. Bad news for the vamps!

The trailer reveals the bad guys storming the gates at the end of the penultimate episode wasn't a misdirect, and it looks like Hope, Josie, and Lizzie start out avoiding the invaders. At some point, however, the girls will be trapped in a room at gunpoint, with the armed man playing a twisted game of "Eeny, meeny, miny, moe." The screen goes black when the gunshot rings out, so we'll have to wait for the episode to air before we find out if one of the girls was shot.

It's worth pointing out that the three girls all have magical powers under normal circumstances, and they could in theory defeat the guy with the gun if those powers are somehow restored. Still, could one of them be shot?

If one of those three does get shot, my money is 100% on Hope, and not just because of the possibility that she'll become a vampire in the not-too-distant future. Legacies has been building up The Merge all season as the event that will pit the Saltzman twins against each other. If one of them is going to die, would it really be at the hands of an outsider?

We'll have to wait and see. According to the official synopsis of the finale, Hope will lead the charge to keep her friends safe from the invaders, and that won't be all that happens. MG discovers a secret about his mom, and Josie will find herself in a particularly dangerous situation. Is that on top of being held at gunpoint? Does this bring Hope and Lizzie closer together? Poor Josie.

The Season 1 finale of Legacies will air on Thursday, March 28 at 9 p.m. ET on The CW. That will be it for Legacies in the midseason lineup, but fans can take heart knowing that Legacies has already been renewed for a second season. If the finale ends on a cliffhanger, Legacies will have another season to resolve it!
