2. MARCEL GERARD & KOL MIKAELSON
Legacies Season 4 Finale Episode is titled ‘Everything That Can Be Lost May Also Be Found’. This episode is the ultimate reunion episode for the Originals characters. An episode that the fans of the Originals have been waiting for so long. This episode hasn’t aired yet, the Season 4 finale episode will air on April 14, 2022. Both the actors Nathaniel Buzolic and Charles Michael Davis will reprise their respective roles of Kol Mikaelson and Marcel Gerard on Legacies. It would be the first time these actors will be seen reprising the roles since Originals finale ‘When The Saints Go Marching In’. The Originals finale which saw Kol Mikaelson returning to be together with his family as his elder brother marches towards his death. The Mikaelsons feast together and celebrate one last time together. Whereas Marcel can be seen instructing the vampires to leave the city of New Orleans, giving it back to the humans, and he accepts Rebekah’s proposal.
This episode will see Hope Mikaelson struggling in confusion and tries fighting her humanity, during which she sees the people who mean the world to her. The episode will feature the characters of Rebekah and Freya as well. Even though Legacies is a spin-off of the Originals, but the main focus has always been Hope Mikaelson who becomes the first tribrid. Apart from a few cameos, mentions, and references, we haven’t seen much of the Originals on the show. It is likely that Marcel and Kol would appear in a form of hallucination/dream like sequence, but still a reunion would mean a lot.
