The cast of Legacies recently shared some of their favorite monsters featured in Season 2.
“Yeah, I got a favorite monster. Cupid,” Chris Lee, who plays Kaleb Hawkins, revealed in an interview posted on The CW’s YouTube channel. Ben Levin, who portrays Jed on the show, also voted for Cupid — and Santa Clause — explaining, “Those are two beings that we don’t ever see depicted in the way that our show depicts them.”
In Season 2, Episode 11, “What Cupid Problem?”, chaos erupted when various characters at the Salvatore Boarding School for the Young and Gifted were struck by the monster Pothos’ arrow. Among other things, witch Emma Tig and school librarian Dorian Williams got married while under the influence of the arrow. Jed was also shot by an arrow and crashed the wedding to reveal his feelings for Emma.
Santa Claus took center stage in Season 2, Episode 8, “This Christmas Was Surprisingly Violent,” when the Krampus monster appeared at the Salvatore School and attacked Ryan Clarke.
Later in the interview, Jenny Boyd (Lizzie Saltzman) revealed that her favorite monster in Season 2 was “definitely the Minotaur,” which appeared in the ’80s-themed fifth episode of the season. “There was a moment when he burst through the wall,” the actor recalled. “It was such an incredible moment.”
The clip ended with Danielle Rose Russell (Hope Mikaelson) sharing that her favorite monster in Season 2 the Sphinx. “He made all the other characters think, you know?” She added. “So I really liked that. It challenged them a bit more in a different way than when [they are] just, like fighting, I guess.”
While it’s unclear which monsters will pop up in Season 3, a trailer released in early December confirmed that Season 3 of Legacies will pick up where Season 2 closed. In the Season 2 finale, “Facing Darkness Is Kinda My Thing,” Hope had fallen into a cursed sleep and Landon was fighting for his life after being shot by a golden arrow.
