Legacies - I Was Made to Love You

"I Was Made to Love You" confirms a couple of suspicions that the Landon (Aria Shahghasemi) who returned isn't the real one, and is in fact made of Malivore mud, and the mysterious shaman/hunter is actually Hope's (Danielle Rose Russell) boyfriend. While I didn't expect Cleo (Omono Okojie) to be responsible for the Landon golem, there were plenty of clues from this season about there being much more going on with the character than what we'd seen up until this point (and the callback to Hope's bust was a nice touch). Looks like next week will be reserved for answers concerning these revelations (and maybe, finally, the conclusion to the end of the Malivore storyline?), meaning other lingering threads needed to be taken care of here in the various B-stories which turn out mostly well.

While there are certainly plenty of questions to be answered in next week's episode concerning the motives of Cleo, the episode does close off a couple of other plot lines with Josie (Kaylee Bryant) discovering the truth about Finch (Courtney Bandeko) and restarting their relationship with all cards on the table. Alaric (Matthew Davis) and Lizzie also work through some issues involving the Necromancer, if they had to include him in one more episode the noble end of "Ted" turns out to be a nice swan song. And MG (Quincy Fouse) is forced to make a difficult decision concerning Ethan's (Leo Howard) vampire envy that nearly costs the former football star his life.
