Legacies - Someplace Far Away From All This Violence

The western theme of the episode comes from Lizzie (Jenny Boyd) taking a trip into the therapy box where she becomes the daughter of a schoolteacher to be hung at dawn for the violence caused by a murderous outlaw Hope (Danielle Rose Russell). Back the real world, Hope returns to the school not for comfort on confrontation but to acquire weapons to go after Triad. Her friends attempt to remind Hope of her humanity, and Josie (Kaylee Bryant) manages to finally get under her skin at one point, but in the end Hope leaves with what she came for. 

The Lizzie story allows her to work through her pain and arrive at the conclusion that she needs to hunt down Hope, meaning it's probably a good idea Cleo (Omono Okojie) decides not to tell anyone about the Hope-killing tree out back. It also allows a pair of roles for Matthew Davis) both of the imprisoned schoolteacher and his vampire hunting brother. It's the later that reminds Lizzie where she comes from and what, she thinks, needs to be done. The final thread involves Kaleb (Chris Lee) and Jed (Ben Levin) hunting the Argus in the woods.
