Legacies - Just Don't Be a Stranger, Okay?

After four seasons, Legacies comes to a close. The season had some ups and downs but finally delivered on Hope's (Danielle Rose Russell) big tribrid turn and returned several familiar faces from The Originals in "Everything That Can Be Lost May Also Be Found." There was just one more thing fans were hoping to see. In the aftermath of the latest attack on the school, and the funeral for Ethan (Leo Howard), Alaric (Matthew Davis) considers closing the school much to the dismay of the Super Squad. Finding a familiar face in Limbo allows Ethan to move on to peace, Landon (Aria Shahghasemi) to get one more moment with Hope, and for the show to bring in Klaus Michaelson (Joseph Morgan) for a single appearance in the farewell episode.

In the end, the Salvatore School remains open with a new headmaster (or headmistress, to be accurate), Hope finds the closure she's been searching for, and several of the supporting characters get small moments suggesting what their futures might look like including Cleo (Omono Okojie)  and Kaleb (Chris Lee) staying together and Jed (Ben Levin) deciding to leave the pack in the capable hands of Finch (Courtney Bandeko) after choosing to leave the school with Ben (Zane Phillips). We don't get a final appearance by Josie, which would have been a nice touch to wrap up all of the core characters, but otherwise "Just Don't Be a Stranger, Okay?" hits the necessary notes to send off the characters off the air and into the inevitable realm of fan fiction.
