Legacies - One Day You Will Understand

"One Day You Will Understand" offers a glimpse into the past of Cleo (Omono Okojie) to help explain her recent actions while Landon (Aria Shahghasemi) clues Hope (Danielle Rose Russell) into what he's been up to since his death and return from Malivore and the prison world, and Josie (Kaylee Bryant) offers Finch (Courtney Bandeko) a tour of the school. The result of the three stories will add a new student to the Salvatore Boarding School for the Young & Gifted while two other characters will make their leave searching for ways to destroy Malivore.

The episode teases the idea Finch may not fit into the new surroundings, but there was little doubt that the werewolf would end up in school once the character's wolf nature was introduced. As for Cleo, her history with Malivore helps explain her obsession with destroying the creature although many of her and Landon's recent actions remain questionable. The reveal that Hope can only defeat Malivore by dying and enabling her vampire skills foreshadows we may see Legacies explore this idea of Hope as a full Tribrid further. It makes sense for Landon, who feels very much out of place, to leave the school at the end of the episode. His pairing with Cleo is unexpected, although both have good reason to want Malivore destroyed, possibly creating a new subplot for the pairing (or simply writing them off until a later return).
