Legacies - This Christmas Was Surprisingly Violent

By the end of the show's mid-season finale things will be pretty much back to normal. Before that, Lizzie (Jenny Boyd) will drag Landon (Aria Shahghasemi) back home, Rafael (Peyton 'Alex' Smith) will meet his biological father, and Christmas will come in October for the Salvatore School when Krampus comes knocking turning everyone except Hope (Danielle Rose Russell) into a group of merry fools. To save the day, Hope will have to rely on unexpected help from Clarke (Nick Fink) and Santa Claus (Jeff Pillars). It's a goofy end to a half-season that resets things (mostly) back to normal with both Hope and Alaric back in school, Hope and Landon together, and the pit closed.

The show's writers do will with closing the chapter of the love triangle as Landon steps up for his break-up with Josie (Kaylee Bryant) and finally admits to Hope to what his subconscious was shouting about. While Lizzie seems happy with Sebastian (Thomas Doherty), who apparently is also sticking around, I'm still waiting for the other shoe to drop where the manipulative vampire is concerned. The return of the Necromancer (Ben Geurens), revealed as the hooded figure who has been lurking around in previous weeks suggests there is still plenty of trouble ahead for the school when the show returns in February.
