Legacies Just Wasted Its Best Possible Series Finale Ending

Landons powers as the new Ferryman had the potential to create the perfect Legacies series finale. Unfortunately they were used too soon & wasted.

With Landon coming to the rescue Legacies penultimate episode just wasted its best possible ending for the series finale. Legacies season 4 and the show as a whole is soon to come to a close. With it Hope Danielle Rose Russell and the rest of the Super Squad will face their toughest challenge yet taking on the father of the gods Ken Luke Mitchell who is hellbent on the destruction of Tribrid Hope in Legacies and then ruling humans.

Despite their bestlaid plans Ken with the help of Aurora Rebecca Breeds easily upended the Squads plans and either directly or indirectly killed a number of main characters before Hope and Ken even squared off. MG Quincy Fouse Jed Ben Levin and Kaleb Chris Lee were all killed right before the critical moment. With their deaths failure seemed imminent for everyone else not to mention more death. But Landon Aria Shahghasemi who is Legacies new Ferryman became a convenient deus ex machina and revived all three characters as Hope and Ken fought. While it was a fun moment it unfortunately ruined the best possible series ending for Legacies.

Landons recentlyacquired powers of resurrection as the new Ferryman have a lot of potential. Audiences had speculated that they would play a big role in the shows final episode setting up an opportunity for a perfect Legacies series finale that sees Landon resurrect a number of characters from The Vampire Diaries and The Originals to bring the TV universe to a close. Thats now been spoiled by the same twist already being used in Legacies season 4 episode 19 This Can Only End In Blood. With Landon already bringing back three of the main characters it would be completely underwhelming if Legacies were to pull the same exact trick in the very next episode. It will no longer be a surprise and its potential to generate an unexpected moment in the finale has been seriously diminished.

Worse not only did Legacies use Landons Limbo trick one episode too soon but it largely wasted the storys potential as well. MG Kaleb and Jed have been with the show from the start and have grown to be some of the series most beloved characters. Their deaths should have been devastating and meaningful. Instead they were reduced to a gimmick rendering their sacrifices devoid of real emotion and lasting impact.

What might have been an incredibly emotional moment of the three returning after enough time that both characters and the audience thought they were truly gone was barely a blip in a single episode. Later Ethans Leo Howard death was barely an afterthought and even though he hasnt had as big a role in Legacies the episode already hinted that hell be resurrected as well. It was Rebeccas death as the conflicted antagonist that received the most time and actually showed growth and change not just for the character herself but also for Hope.

Despite the best intentions the episode was just indicative of the problems that have plagued Legacies from the start. Interesting storylines are dropped without being properly explored and other storylines that audiences have far less interest in are inexplicably extended. Supporting Legacies characters that deserve full development are sidelined in order to give attention to secondary characters that arent nearly as compelling. With the penultimate episode of Legacies jumping the gun on what would have been the biggest finale twist it seems the show will end exactly as it began never quite living up to its full potentia
