Legacies - You Have to Pick One This Time / You Have to Pick One This Time

Both of the first two episodes of the Fourth Season of Legacies focus on plans to free Cleo (Omono Okojie) and Landon (Aria Shahghasemi) from Malivore. Since neither is successful, we can guess this will becoming a running theme. In the first plan, the super squad invade Malivore's mind in an attempt to rescue the muse, who they believe holds the key to defeating the monster once and for all, only to almost be trapped with Malivore themselves. Malivore continues to do its best using both a stick and carrot to push Cleo to find the answer to its Tribrid problem. The second plan involves a risky spell to syphon Malivore from the Landon body and trap it into Ryan (Nick Fink), but that only creates a new monster and an eventual second hospital stay for Malivore's least-favorite son.

The opener continues to nurture the unexpected friendship between Alaric (Matthew Davis) and Kaleb (Chris Lee) who discovers some uncomfortable truths while inside Malivore. We do see some character growth for Hope (Danielle Rose Russell) who is forced to put her trust in her friends over her desire to free Landon and let others take the lead.  Josie (Kaylee Bryant) and Finch (Courtney Bandeko) hit the first major roadblock in their relationship as Finch discovers what it means to be a Gemini witch. And MG (Quincy Fouse) reverts to some of his old stalkerish jealousy when Lizzie (Jenny Boyd) gets closer with Ethan (Leo Howard).
