Warning: This article contains spoilers for Legacies Season 4.
Legacies’ biggest WTF moment came at the end of Season 1’s finale, and three seasons later, we’re still picking our jaws up off the floor. Hope Mikaelson (Danielle Rose Russell), the main character, sacrificed herself for the sake of the world’s fate in order to prevent the demon Malivore from rising and returning to Earth. Many fans wondered if Hope had been killed off of Legacies after she threw herself into the Malivore pit (Buffy the Vampire Slayer vibes anyone?). But she wasn’t gone long before she returned to Mystic Falls. Hope faced Malivore for the third time in Season 3, but she lacked the supernatural strength to defeat him. Hope discovered that in order to save her boyfriend’s life, she must face death. So, in Legacies, does Hope really die?
