After two humorous and drama-filled episodes with love triangles, road trips, slugs, and a unicorn, “Legacies” unveiled a shocking twist in Landon's story. The season as a whole has remained fairly lighthearted with plenty of humorous moments, supernatural teenage struggles, and relationship drama. As with its two predecessors, "Legacies" knows how to hit upon the emotional heartbreak with Jo returning from the dead to meet her twins for the first time, Rafael found closure with the death of his girlfriend, and Landon's mom choosing to return to Malivore.

So it comes as no surprise the series took a heartbreaking route with Thursday's episode which saw a distressed and angry MG attack Landon. What did come as a surprise was "Legacies" answering a major question about Landon while also opening up a bunch more questions. Alaric, Hope, MG, Kaleb, and Rafael discovered Landon has phoenix-like abilities when his body burst into flames and he broke free of an ash shell completely alive again.

As it was with “The Vampire Diaries” and “The Originals” Landon's origins will most likely take a twist as things lead up to the season finale. While Landon pokes into the truth of his origins and the aftermath of MG's attack weighs upon the group, "Legacies" has found time for some old-fashioned Mystic Falls traditions.
