Legacies - This Feels a Little Cult-y

Josie (Kaylee Bryant) tricks Hope (Danielle Rose Russell) into joining her to check-in on Lizzie (Jenny Boyd) at a witch's retreat. Josie's idea is to help Hope get over the loss of Landon (Aria Shahghasemi). However, the cultish nature of the retreat soon suggests that there may actually be danger to save themselves from. Sibylla Deen guest-stars as Andi, the witch in charge of the retreat who is revealed to have ties to Triad Industries and is gathering enough witches to complete a summoning ritual. It's fun seeing the three young women together again, as they have been separated by many of the recent storylines, and there's plenty in the witches getting drugged (including, at one point, believing they were all being turned into pandas).

The other two episodes involve Finch (Courtney Bandeko) carving out a niche for herself among the wolves and Alaric (Matthew Davis) and Dorian (Demetrius Bridges) searching for the missing MG (Quincy Fouse) who Dorian mistakenly believes is responsible for bodies in the woods. Both subplots work to bring two characters more closely into the fold with Finch finding some common ground with Jed (Ben Levin) and MG agreeing to return. It also teases a new monster and gives us an appearance of a Wendigo (which is actually responsible for the bodies Dorian had discovered).
