Legacies continue to grow the tension with “You Will Remember Me.” Plenty is happening with Hope, Josie, and Lizzie throughout the episode as each of them works toward their goal.
For Hope, it is tracking down the members of Triad that have threatened her life. She handles the witch and the werewolf quickly, but the vampire ends up being the most important of all. Aurora de Martel, a villain from The Originals, made her way to Legacies as the vampire wishing to ruin Hope as revenge against Klaus.
Hope and Aurora’s interactions include easter eggs to The Originals, referencing Aurora’s past with Klaus and Papa Tunde’s blade. But, the final moments of their interaction become the big plot twist. Aurora switches bodies with Hope, leaving many possibilities for what may come next, especially given where things stand with Josie and Lizzie.
Josie spends “You Will Remember Me” trapped in the therapy box, just as Lizzie had the previous episode. Except, while Lizzie’s session was a western alternate reality that examined Hope and the Mikaelsons as dangerous villains, Josie’s session is a take-off on Grey’s Anatomy, framing Hope and the Mikaelsons as doctors and helpers.
Josie’s therapy session prioritizes understanding how Hope fainted during surgery above everything else. Just like in the real world, finding a way to help Hope becomes Josie’s number one focus.
Lizzie’s therapy session ended with Lizzie believing that vengeance was the way to deal with her Hope problem and killing the Tribrid would be the answer. Josie’s, however, suggests that her next step may have her going alone. As Josie prepares to leave the therapy box, she claims to now understand how to help the real Hope.
If Josie does go after Hope alone, it will be a massive change from working with the Super Squad. However, to get to Hope, Josie may still have to deal with Lizzie, who continues her plot for revenge.
Cleo’s knowledge of a weapon that can kill Hope causes her to question if revealing the truth to Lizzie would be a good idea, given the possibility of Lizzie’s hostile intentions. Still, while MG agrees with Cleo’s decision to burn the tree, preventing the chance for Hope to be killed, Lizzie pulls pieces of the wood out anyway, preparing to make a stake to kill Hope.
Lizzie’s single-minded determination has her force Ethan’s loyalty to stand with her against Hope, which means lying to their friends or forgetting their conversation, allowing Lizzie to give Ethan fake memories.
Both Lizzie and Josie are prepared to go after Hope alone for the opposite reasons. However, given Aurora’s recent body-switching scheme, it may be uncertain what either of the twins will do when they find Hope or who they may believe to be Hope if they run across Aurora in Hope’s body instead.
“You Will Remember Me” has a lot going for it in terms of preparation. Whatever comes next has been relied upon by this episode and how it grows the character’s choices, desires, and feelings.
