Legacies Season Premiere Preview: Saving Hope

at .

It's been a long time coming, but we are just one day away from the debut of Legacies Season 3 Episode 1.

The hit drama returns after almost a year off the air, and there are some pressing matters to be dealt with when the episode picks up.

If you watch Legacies online, you know Hope and Landon were in sleep-like states at the close of Legacies Season 2.

Unimpressed Sisters - Legacies Season 3 Episode 1

Even though it wasn't supposed to be the cliffhanger to end the season, it worked well to give us some time to ponder the possibilities.

The CW has not shed light on what actually happened to the couple, but they did offer up some photos and a logline.

Here is what to expect, according to the network:

Saving Hope - Legacies Season 3 Episode 1

LET THE GAMES BEGIN -- In order to get a handle on some urgencies at the school, Alaric (Matthew Davis) sends the students off-campus for their first-ever field day.

But when a medieval monster arrives with a challenge, the students are left scrambling to guess which one of them may be a worthy opponent.

Danielle Rose Russell, Aria Shahghasemi, Kaylee Bryant, Jenny Boyd, Quincy Fouse, Peyton Alex Smith, Chris Lee and Ben Levin also star. Jeffrey Hunt directed the episode written by Penny Cox & Cynthia Adarkwa (#301). Original airdate 1/21/2021.

Unfortunately, for those of us that want spoilers about Hope and Landon, there isn't much out there. The network is staying tight-lipped, so that fans will need to tune in to find out whether they both survive.

It's hard to imagine either of them being killed off, especially when you consider that Hope is the lead character and Landon is her boyfriend.

Many Handon fans are out there, and it's doubtful they would be pleased about the show offing one of their favorite characters.

That said, it does sound like there will be plenty of drama on the campus, especially if Alaric is sending the students away.

The Necromancer Returnsq - Legacies Season 3 Episode 1

Unfortunately, it seems like Alaric will have to go up against the Necromancer, who has somehow managed to be in all three seasons of the series.

Does anyone else feel like the Necromancer is a bit of a one-trick pony? He was fun in his original episode, but he lost his edge when he returned.

Legacies Season 3 Episode 1 Quotes

Lizzie: A freaking field day? As in an entire day spent in an actual field? That’s your plan to get everyone to stop looking at Jo like she’s an axe murderer?
Alaric: You got a better one?
Lizzie: I’m so glad that you asked. Based on my own personal growth, I have created a 17 step approach.
Alaric: Elizabeth, I have got time for exactly one step and that involves you looking out for your sister while I deal with Landon, among many other things.
Lizzie: Dad, it’s not possible. I’ll have to deploy the nuclear option, which is me backsliding to using my mean girl bully tactics to persuade everyone to forgive and forget all the awful things that Jo did, and I’m just not that person anymore.

Alyssa: Sorry, just for clarification. Does our community include your daughter who murdered me and held the entire school hostage to stage a grotesque display of black magic power?
Alaric: Josie is back to normal and safe.
Alyssa: Thanks to Hope, who I’m noticing isn’t here at the asscrack of dawn like the rest of us. So much for unity, I guess.
Alaric: Hope, I’m sure you all can understand, was hit hard by what happened to Landon and she’s just taking some time for herself.
Wade: Speaking of, how is my boy Landon?
Alaric: Getting Landon back is my top priority and I won’t stop until I do, and that would go for any one of you.
Kaleb: Okay, so what are we all supposed to do now, and why are we wearing gym clothes?
Alaric: Something you haven’t had the chance to do in far too long. Be kids. I want you to remember what it’s like to not have to worry about something you shouldn’t have to, and grow closer together in the process. Now, before you ask me how.
M.G.: As president of the Student Activities Committee, I would like to welcome you all to the first-ever Salvatore School field day. The buses are waiting for you outside. Don’t forget to bring your smile.
