01x02 - Some People Just Want To Watch The World Burn

Previously on Legacies...

LIZZIE: Welcome to the Salvatore School.

- I'm Josie.
- I'm Lizzie. Sisters.

We are a school for the supernatural.

Which covers a lot of territory.

HOPE: I'm a hybrid of three different creatures.


I knew Hope went to some fancy boarding school.

People in town said it was for troubled rich kids.

This is a safe place for people like Rafael.

- ALARIC: I'm sorry, Langdon.

- But you don't belong here.
- Then where do I belong?

I'm still nursing a wounded soul.

Penelope Park.

I am an equal opportunity

- evil temptress.




I'm not gonna remember any of this.

Probably not.

LANDON: Well, in that case.

- What's wrong?
- The alarm didn't trigger.

- ALARIC: What was it?
- DORIAN: Knife.

Supernatural origins unknown.

HOPE: How do you know it was him?

It's not possible, okay?

I'm not that stupid. I know how to track him, but it involves using dark magic.

Inveniet hostium et tenebrae. Inveniet hostium...

DONOVAN: Local PD thinks it was a chemical spill.

ALARIC: What's the actual story?

DONOVAN: I'll leave that to you to figure out.



♪ ♪


HOPE: "No legacy is so rich as honesty."

When Shakespeare wrote that, he obviously didn't knowwhat I know about teenage boys.

I mean, I know there are guys with integrity,who lead with truth.

I've just never met any of them.

EMMA: I see you've decided to double downon your nihilism this morning.

I'm trying to be rich with honesty.

Start from the beginning.

Of my short-lived but horrific romances with liars?

Of your decision to perform black magic on school grounds last night.

Maybe we could table this until I catch the guy I was trying to find by using black magic.

Because the longer that Landon Kirby is out there, the greater the chance he tells people about this school and the kind of people we have hidden behind the gates.

You know there's a beacon that alerts me when someone's using.

You knew you would be caught.

After I found Landon, but we lost the trail and now I'm being interrogated.

But go ahead, take your time.

Nothing at stake here.

Did anyone help you with the spell?

No. Can I go now?

Hope. You're a student.

- This isn't your fight.
- It's absolutely my fight, Emma.

Landon was inside the walls of this school because of me.

He had access to the knife he stole because of me.

We're at risk of exposure because of me.

And you can tell me that I'm sublimating a lifetime of survivor's remorse, or whatever it says in my file here, but I'm gonna help Dr. Saltzman find him.

And what happens when you do?

HOPE: It should be said that Shakespearewasn't completely clueless.

- He had plenty of adviceabout how to handle betrayal.

My personal favorite: "Think, therefore,on revenge and cease to weep."

Let's hit the dining hall and carb load.

It's game day.

I'm not hungry.

- What?
- Well, uh, funny thing actually, Josette.

This morning, as I was desperately trying to make this trash bag of a jersey look cute, I suddenly had the urge to purge.

So I fled to the bowl, and lo and behold, I heaved up a gallon of black goo.

So, seeing as I haven't been dabbling in any illicit black magic recently,

I can only imagine it was a twin sympathy hurl.

And here you are, denying the day's most important meal.

So fess up. What did you do?

PENELOPE: Maybe you're pregnant, Lizzie.

Oh, or maybe it's just how that jersey fits.

Go away, evil one.

Already gone. Hot tip: next time you burn your ex's hair off, make sure she can't rock a lob.


Morning! Big game today...

Bounce, MG.

If you hurry, you can catch up with the Blair Bitch and tongue-chum her again.

Did she who shall not be named just fat-shame me?

- Hey, girls, listen.
- Don't do it.

Don't say whatever it is you're about to say because you have Dad face, and wherever Dad face goes, daughter disappointment always follows.

I'm sorry; I can't make the game today.

But, Dad, you're the coach.

And I'm QB this year.

I hate it as much as you do, but I have to find Landon Kirby.

Okay, so, let's cancel.

I mean, it's a joke anyways.

We can't use our powers, so we suck.

Exactly. Which is a normal school for troubled rich kids thing to do.

This annual event lets the locals see you for what they think you are.

And keeps them from asking too many questions.

But they mock us.

Because they're insecure, small-town kids with small minds.

So just let it be. Look, girls, with Landon running around, knowing all of our secrets, we have to protect our profile now more than ever.

Can I count on you guys to do that?

All right. I love you both.

We'll be back as soon as we can.


Who's "we"?

- Hello?

[SIGHS] Hey.

What are you doing?

Adjusting the sway bar.

- Was it broken?


[SIGHS] It is now.

You're going after Landon.

If you want this car to work, I'm going with you.

You should stay out of it.
He's a liar and a thief.

He took a stupid knife.

Nothing in this school is a stupid anything.

Look. He's my best friend.

And you? You seem vengeful.

Let me show you something.

Close your eyes.


♪ ♪


What the hell was that?

Your best friend did that to a bus full of people on Route last night, and I am the only one who knows how to find him, so give me the engine thingy.


I have actual magic powers.

And I have a long history of anger issues.

He can come.


He knows Landon; he'll be an asset.

And we need all the help we can get, so fix the car and hop in.

And put a shirt on.


Dad loves Hope more than us.

You're being melodramatic, okay?

He's missing one game.

First a game and then our weddings.

This game is an opportunity.

We can show him how seriously we are taking this by making sure that our secret stays protected out there on the field.

Today, we will lose even more epically than we normally do.

Win by losing. That's the spirit.

There's someone we need to recruit to our Island of Misfit Toys.

- Tall, hot and handsome.
- Rafael?

I am totally thinking tight end.

PENELOPE: I just saw him.

Yeah, sorry, Raf's not gonna be at the game.

He hopped the Hope train out of town.

Just like your dad.

I don't know why he's still out here.

He has a whole day's lead on us. He could be anywhere.

Maybe 'cause he doesn't have a reason to run.

[SCOFFS] Logic that would be perfectly believable

if he hadn't, you know, ran.

- Wait... Shh!

You hear that?


Someone's here.

I-It's okay. I-I'm not gonna hurt you.

Were you on the bus?

Can you tell us what happened?

Is she a survivor?

Uh, smells like it. She reeks of smoke.

I think she's in shock.

Look, I need to get her to the police so she she can get some medical attention.

Uh, why don't you two go ahead? Don't engage.

We don't know how dangerous Landon is.

- He's not dangerous...
- I said don't engage.

Come on.

I need to get you some help.

If you want to follow me.


All right, guys.

Let's have a good, clean, entirely uneventful game.

Like we do every year when we beat your asses down.

Not exactly the spirit, Kyle.

- Oh.
- All right, call in the air.

Tails never fails.

Guess not. Your ball.

Shake hands and let's do this.

MAN: Go. Huddle, huddle.

Kaleb. Come on, suck it up.

We have to go through this every year, okay?

I was being recruited by D schools before I got here, all right? I don't lose.

Hey. You do today. Okay?

Good luck out there.

Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.

I'm pretty sure I've seen that on a poster at the dentist's.

Oh, my dad's a dentist, but he still made time to be here.

I guess I'm lucky that way, huh?



What exactly happened on that bus?

No one knows.

It's like something incinerated it from the inside.

Look, whatever he did, I know there's a good explanation.

He's the most loyal friend that I've ever had.

He was there for me on the worst day of my life.

After my girlfriend died, he's the only thing that kept me going.

So let me get that knife back for you and then we both can hear him out, okay?

Appreciate the passion, but maybe you should exert some of it making new friends.

So I can be as popular and well-liked as you?


I've been at the school for two days and I've already heard all about Hope Mikaelson and her sunny disposition.

I'll get you the stupid, not-stupid knife and the answers you want.

I promise.

And why should I believe you?

Because I don't lie.


Everybody lies.

He's in the root cellar.

You have three minutes to do this your way.

Wait, the headmaster said don't engage.

Two minutes, . Two minutes, .

Raf? Holy hell.

How did you find me?

There's, um, a-a lot of crazy witchy people looking for you.

There's a bus full of burned-up people...

- That wasn't me.
- HOPE: Then who was it?

You said three minutes.

Like I said, people lie.

Corporis impetu.


Where's the knife?

I don't have it. I must've lost it when I ran.

- After you burned the bus?
- That wasn't me, I swear.

I barely got out alive.

- Hope, come on.
- Last chance.

Who the hell was it?

There was this girl...



Do you need to make a phone call?

Wait, wait, that's mine.

Can I have that...


That-that-that's my watch.

Hey, Miss, wait, wait, Miss, I...


Remember the game plan, Kaleb.

Girl, I used to eat townie scrubs like this for lunch.

That's before I was a vampire.



DANA: Connor!

I know I'm supposed to do this in the end zone, but...


That went well, all things considered.

One word.

One word and I could burn her perky little boobs to ash.

Hey, but we're not gonna do that today.

Today of all days, right?

For the record, the nerdling approach never got any dude anywhere.

Okay, you're lucky that I'm still talking to you after that stunt you pulled last night, kissing me like that.

I was giving you what you wanted.

No, you were taking a shot at Josie, and when someone other than Lizzie takes a shot at Josie, they tend to wake up with scabies.

You ever have scabies before?

They're nasty.

So Lizzie's mad at you?

Meaning she sees you for a change?

So you did that on purpose?

I do everything on purpose.

Look, if Lizzie Saltzman is what you want, I can help you get her.

But you're gonna have to do exactly what I say.

What's in it for you?

Does a girl have to have a motive to do charity work?

Next play, impress me.

All right, way to go, Stallions.

Let's keep it up, let's keep it up.


DORIAN [OVER PHONE]: A pyromancer?

A woman who smelled like she'd been dipped in an ashtray and breathed fire instead of words.

What else could she be?

There are only a couple dozen left, most are in East Asia.

Well, now there's one wandering around the woods off Route .

All right, I'm on it.

I'll call you back when I figure out how you can restrain her without getting barbecued.

She stole my phone. I'll have to get back to you.

How are the girls doing?

Oh, they're-they're killing it. [CHUCKLES]

By not killing it.

Great. I will be in touch.

Thank you so much. You're a lifesaver.


All right, I just want to take a minute to let you know how proud I am.

You're all doing a great job.

We're getting our asses kicked.

Which means we're doing a great job.

What's the play?

Same one as always. Run around, make it look like you know what you're doing, then fail. On three.

HOPE: I don't believe anything you say.

LANDON: You have every right to be mad at me, but I am telling you the truth.

Come on man, help me.

I believe him.

You believe that a fire-breathing woman burned the bus alive?


And Landon happened to be spared?

He told you that he ran.

And conveniently lost the knife on the way.

- Yes.
- She kept coming at me like she was gonna take it from me.

She was burning everything in her path.

You want to explain to me what you were doing stealing the knife in the first place?

I don't remember stealing it.

Of course not. How about pretending to be compelled?

That was to avoid being thrown back in the werewolf dungeon.

- Transitional cellar.
- Small spaces.

Hope, you have to understand, Dr. Saltzman had already told me the school wasn't gonna let me stay.

If he thought I'd talk, he'd lock me back up.

There wasn't a good ending for me.

I didn't want to steal from you and I don't want a fire-breather chasing me. I'm sorry for all of it.

He's not lying. I know him.

Now, if he says that there's a fire-breathing woman running through the woods, then there is a...

There's a fire-breathing woman running through the woods.

Did I or did I not say "don't engage"?

He's only dangerous if crappy apologies can kill.

Looks can be deceiving.

Now our bus refugee, turns out she's a pyromancer.

Wait, wh-what's a pyromancer?

- A fire-breathing witch.

Ric, she wants the knife.

Okay, well, where is it?

I-I lost it in the woods.

I was running around in circles all night trying to find a place to hide.

Okay, okay. Well, let's, uh, find it before she does, huh?


We don't want any trouble.

- What does she want?
- I don't know.


Maybe she wants the knife

you said you don't have.

Back in the cellar, go. Go, go, go, go.

Where the hell is it?

I'm sorry. I panicked.

What the hell, Lan?

[GRUNTS] Hope, the doors.

Got it. Adiuuatur.

Okay, it's a quick fix. It won't last long.

All right, great, I need a cell phone.

Take your pick.

What is all this?

It's from the people on the bus.

I didn't bring it here. I...

If he says "I swear" one more time, I'm gonna melt him.





It's green, it's green.


Your sister sucks at football.

You should've absorbed her in the womb.

You know what?

We've been playing this game for years, and for years you have been digging at me.

Is it because I'm prettier than you?

Honestly, I just get a thrill from tormenting all the crazies.

Speaking of, it's been a while since you paid a visit to my mom's pharmacy.

Maybe you're feeling a little delusional because you're off your meds.

She steals treasure, breathes fire, hides the loot in her lair.

She's-she's not a pyromancer, she's a...

Dragons don't exist, or look like normal people.

There was a time we would have said that about vampires.

I'm calling an audible of my own.

- Seriously?
- I'm dead serious.

And you should be, too.

Dad told us to lose today for a reason.

Well, he ain't here. So screw that.

JOSIE: Yeah, no one would be here if it weren't for him.

My dad built this school for supernaturals like us, so if we win by flaunting all the things that make us different, we're gonna lose a lot more than a stupid game.

We'll lose everything.

You really want Dad to stop loving us? Keep it up.

And if you don't...

MG: She's right, Lizzie.
We got to lose the game.

I didn't ask for your opinion.

Or... door number three.

Okay, we definitely didn't ask for your opinion.

And how on earth do you always do that?

It's like she appears out of smoke.

Hold up, hold up.
What's door number three?

You win, without any of your supernatural special sauce.

Fair and square.

Yeah, but we're legitimately terrible.

No, we used to be terrible, but Kaleb's new this year.

So am I. I can help us win, too.

Yo, I caught that pass earlier.

JOSIE: Yeah, but you cheated.

- You used your powers.
- No, I didn't.

I'm... I'm just, I'm scrappy like that.

Good idea, Satan.

But to be clear, you can't have my immortal soul.

Fair and square.

Let's do this.




Promise kept.

You both all right?

Let's give her a proper burial.

See if you can find a shovel.



Found it.

The soft spot, that's how you kill it.

Uh, knife in the heart did the trick.

Huh. Okay. So much for research.

What are you reading, Game of Thrones?

"Puff, the Magic Dragon."

Look, this just doesn't make any sense.

I-It has got to be something else.


Nope. It's a dragon, all right.

- I've got to call you back.
- Ric.

Oh, my God.

- Was that a...?

What is this?

This isn't earth magic, Hope.

This wasn't an earth magic problem.

We don't allow black magic.

It gets inside your heart and it poisons your mind.

Now, I looked the other way this morning 'cause I knew you were upset, but this is a death spell.

A spell you couldn't have known you need to use on a dragon, which... which means you had other plans for it.

Landon did something stupid, maybe evil.

We won't know until we learn more, but... he's still just a kid, Hope... and so are you.

This hatred... this vengeance...

This is your father.

It can't be you.

I won't allow it.

Now, you bury her.

Oh, whoa, towel on. Please.

'Cause vampire or not, the last thing I want to see is your lost boy.

Damn, Peez, you gotta stop lurking.

It's time for a strategy sesh.

Nah, I listened to you all day, and the only thing your little tricks did was make the wrong girl look my way.

I'm out.

This is a long con, Milton. Trust me.

Lizzie's nemesis Dana liking you, oh, that's the puzzle piece you need to crack Lizzie's candy shell and get to her gooey center.

Today was a total win for you.

You hate Lizzie. Why do you care?

Some people just want to watch the world burn.

You mad at me?


I'm mad at the world, and you just happen to be in it.

Well, you're about to be.

I did a little spell at the game.

I made Kaleb drop the ball.

And I totally did black magic with Hope.

Well, let's just call this what it is.

You betrayed me.

I was worried about disappointing Dad.

So I disappointed you instead.

I'll forgive you if you promise not to keep secrets about doing black magic with Hope.

You're my sister, my best friend, and she spent the last ten years making us feel like we don't matter.

And I don't like feeling that way.

Not from Hope, and not from girls like Dana, not from Dad and not from you.

I promise.

Okay? I'm sorry.

It's okay.

I mean, betrayal and all aside, you had my back today.

And you had mine.
