Did Legacies Really Kill Off All Those Characters?

Legacies The CW

Warning! The following contains spoilers for the Legacies episode "Life Was So Much Easier When I Only Cared About Myself." Read at your own risk.

Legacies threw a lot at fans in "Life Was So Much Easier When I Only Cared About Myself," and potentially killed three characters all in the course of one episode. It wasn't quite that simple of course, considering magic and all that, which has me wondering: which of these deaths are really legit?

To get to the bottom of this, let's break down the three key deaths. Here's what happened in each case, and some light speculation on which Legacies character is "dead" and which may be "really dead."

Alexa Chang Legacies The CW


Dark Josie really earned her nickname early into the episode by killing Ayssa without a second thought. It wasn't that long ago Josie was being tormented by her classmate, but Dark Josie went and flipped the script and showed her sister Lizzie this transformation isn't a game.

Later in Legacies' episode, however, Alyssa was seen hanging out in Dark Josie's corner alongside The Necromancer. It appears he brought her back, though only time will tell if there's some limitation on her resurrection and what this new partnership will bring. Remember, Olivia Liang may be leaving Legacies for another CW series, so the show may lose her soon anyway.

Raf Legacies The CW


Raf went on a journey with Landon to figure out what the massive pool of blood he found was about, and who it belonged to. The Legacies character finally got his answer, and was obviously distraught when he found out it was his own.

It turns out The Necromancer ambushed Raf and killed him, all in the name of making him an undead slave. Raf is technically dead, but he's also alive for the moment, so his Legacies fate remains to be seen going forward.

Hope Landon Legacies The CW


Perhaps the most devastating death of Legacies' latest episode, Landon met his end via a golden arrow. It turns out Raf was turned into a zombie by The Necromancer all to bring Landon to an end, and now it appears the immortal is gone for good.

For those that don't remember, the golden arrow was the only thing that could kill Landon for good. Now Hope's hanging out in Dark Josie's mind, and will possibly emerge only to find out Landon is dead. Again, Legacies made two characters in this episode undead already, so it's hard not to speculate the same will happen with Landon. Perhaps the only way The Necromancer could gain control of Landon was by killing him for real?

Are They All Really Dead?

The Necromancer brought Kai Parker back to life, so I'm going to go out on a limb and say no. Any Legacies fans that were devastated by this episode can take solace in the fact that all three of these characters can come back, and the skeptic in me thinks at least 2 of 3 will be okay by the end of Season 2. Of course, it may take a while to find out considering Season 2 of Legacies has halted production. Don't worry, Season 3 is guaranteed so it's only a matter of time before the show returns!

For now Legacies airs on The CW Thursdays at 9:00 p.m. ET. Continue to stick with CinemaBlend for more on the series, and for the latest news happening in television and movies.
