Legacies Season 3 Spoilers: A Devastating Twist!

at .

We are just weeks away from our return visit to the Salvatore School, Legacies fanatics.

The last fresh episode aired way back in March, and we left the characters in a precarious situation.

Legacies Season 2 wrapped with both Hope and Landon out for the count, with none of the other characters able to wake them up.

A Wild Development - Legacies

It was a brutal cliffhanger, but given that it wasn't supposed to be the conclusion to the season, it worked fairly well to keep fans on tenterhooks for months leading up to the return.

After such a long wait, The CW has dropped plot details for Legacies Season 3 Episode 1 and Legacies Season 3 Episode 2, as well as some photos, which might help us understand what's on tap.

The season premiere, titled "We're Not Worthy," is slated to air January 21 on The CW.

Saving Hope - Legacies Season 3 Episode 1

"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," reads the official synopsis.

"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."

It sure sounds intriguing, but it doesn't give much away about the predicament we left Hope and Landon in at the close of Legacies Season 2 Episode 16, does it?

While it's hard to imagine the network spoiling any big developments in these blurbs about the episodes, the second episode back sounds way more interesting.

Alaric vs. The Necromancer - Legacies Season 3 Episode 1

Titled "Goodbyes Sure Do Suck," it finds the characters learning "devastating news" about one of their own.

"The Super Squad pulls out all the stops when they learn some devastating news involving one of their own," the logline begins.

"Alaric (Matthew Davis) turns to Sheriff Mac (guest star Bianca Kajlich) for help getting some timely affairs in order."

Given the way we left Hope and Landon, this is certainly intriguing. There's been a lot of debate about whether Hope could be activating her vampire side.

A Tense Moment - Legacies Season 3 Episode 1

As a tribrid, she has already activated her witch and werewolf side, meaning that all that remains is something that causes her death, only for her to rise like a phoenix with some new abilities.

Landon is a phoenix and has risen from the dead multiple times already, so I'm inclined to believe he will somehow manage to cheat death.

The synopsis does not confirm a death, but it seems plausible something huge is on the way for these characters, something they may not all be able to avoid.

Landon on the Run - Legacies Season 2 Episode 8

It's also nice to know that Sheriff Mac will be back. The character was failed by the execution of Legacies Season 2!

OK, Legacies Fanatics.

What are you taking from the synopsis? What do you think the "devastating news" might be?

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.
