All the treats for TVD and TO fans in Legacies
So, as most of you, Vampire enthusiasts know, The Vampire Diaries and its spin-offs are the most loved and followed Vampire franchise around. After the success of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals, there is a third one in town. Legacies, the series, is into its second season now. And the series is getting better every episode. Well, in spite of the over-dramatization of supernatural events that is. But again; that’s what makes these series what they are.
So we decided to look into the series and find out all the things you will love in the show.
Everything in Legacies similar to the original series.
1. The series is based around a girl who is of a unique descent.
In The Vampire Diaries, the Salvatore Brothers are seen pining over Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev). They soon discover that Elena is the Petrova Doppelganger. This means that she is someone so unique that a 1000-year-old vampire has been waiting for her for over 500 years.
In Legacies, Hope Mikaelson (Danielle Rose Russel) is the daughter of a hybrid of a witch descent. She is a tribrid – the only one possible of her kind. Especially since her father, Klaus Mikaelson (Joseph Morgan), is dead. Legacies the series revolves around Hope.
2. Both Legacies and The Vampire Diaries are based in the town of Mystic Falls.
Mystic Falls is a small town in Virginia. The place is where Damon Salvatore, Stephan Salvatore, Elena Gilbert, Caroline Forbes, and our other favorite characters were born. The town has had so much happen in it and it doesn’t seem like the atrocities are ending anytime soon.
3. The main girl is an orphan.
Well, in the first season of Vampire Diaries, Elena Gilbert is an orphan. She’s recently lost her parents. In The Originals, Hayley Marshal (Phoebe J. Tonkin) is an orphan who ends up pregnant with the child of Klaus Mikaelson. That’s how Hope is born. Now, by the end of the Originals, Hayley and Klaus both are dead. So making it so that when Legacies starts, Hope is an orphan.
4. The main girl is a brunette, with a blonde and dark-haired girl alongside her.
In the Vampire Diaries, Elena Gilbert had 2 best friends. Caroline Forbes (Candice King) and Bonnie Bennet (Kat Graham). Caroline is blonde, Bonnie is dark-haired and Elena is a brunette.
In the Originals season 1, Hayley Marshal, Camile O’Connor, and Davina Claire are seen to be the center of the storyline. Hayley is a brunette, Camile is a blonde and Davina is dark-haired.
The same goes for Legacies. Hope is a brunette. The two Gemini Twins; Lizzie and Josie are blonde and dark-haired.
5. The love triangle!
Vampire Diaries was infamous for the love triangle between the Salvatore brothers and Elena Gilbert. Also, Kathrine Pierce. Later some other twisted love triangles brewed involving Caroline, Tyler, Stephan, etc.
In the Originals, the same case with Marcel, Camile, and Klaus. Also, Klaus, Hayley, and Elijah. And so on. You get the drill…
In the Legacies, the most prominent love triangle yet is between Hope and the foster brothers; Landon and Rafael. Just as it was in The Vampire Diaries; the lingering threats with an indecisive girl include having the brothers be drifting apart.
Kai Parker is a demonic person. He destroyed the lives of our TVD gang in the short time that he was around. Maybe one of the things that the franchise could’ve toned down was the whole dying and coming back to life thing. We don’t know how many times people die and come back to life in these shows. It is hard to keep track you know.
Kai is coming back in season 2 of Legacies. His come back is much anticipated as the man was adamant about having the next generation of the Gemini Twins be dead.
7. Sibling Rivalries.
TVD (The Vampire Diaries) and TO (The Originals) both had a constant conflict between siblings. Be it Klaus and his siblings or Damon and Stephan, something was always up. Except that they always had each other’s back at the end of the day. And that’s what counts!
The Legacies also contain such sibling rivalry between Lizzie and Josie. The girls are always up and at it over one thing or another.
