Legacies - There's a Mummy on Main Street

The latest episode of Legacies offers a road trip (featuring a montage of fun moments among the group packed into a minivan), the return of agents from the mysterious Triad Industries, Kaleb (Chris De'Sean Lee) being a team player, a mummy (which turns out to be one of the cooler monsters of the season so far), and a cathartic release between Hope Mikaelson (Danielle Rose Russell), Josie (Kaylee Bryant), and Lizzie (Jenny Boyd) as old secrets and resentments boil up to the surface. The last of these helps explain Lizzy's attitude to Hope as Josie is forced to come clean about a mistake from her past that while damaging to everyone involved is also kind of sweet when put into context.

As for the road trip, Alaric (Matthew Davis) leads a team to a small town down river to recover the urn which has summoned a mummy bringing plague on the local inhabitants. Forced to work with Triad, who has their own plan for the urn, Alaric nearly outsmarts the group only to be forced to turn it over to them before heading back to the school. The episode also features more of the awkwardness between Alaric and Emma (Karen David), and later a temper-tantrum by Dorian (Demetrius Bridges) who apparently is so mad that his friend kissed his girl (who no one knew he was dating) he storms out of the school in a jealous rage. Oh, and that helpful Triad Industries agent (Nick Fink), yeah... looks like he's got his own agenda.
