Welcome back to Humor Nation. The Vampire Diaries ran successfully for eight years in which it aired eight seasons. It was the success and popularity of the show and its characters that led to the birth of its spin-offs titled ‘The Originals’ where the focus of the show was the Mikaelsons and their quest for power and searching redemption for their family. Then came Legacies which centers around the next generation, Hope Mikaelson and her friends as they groom their magical potential. Unlike Originals, Legacies is teenage centric and shares plenty of similarities with the Vampire Diaries. So it is not a surprise that the characters of both the shows share plenty of similar traits.
One of the biggest and most obvious similarity is the main heroine of the show. Elena is the lead heroine of TVD and Hope is the lead of Legacies. Both have experienced the loss of their parents and are orphaned. While Elena’s parents died in a car crash and she survived, but the survivor’s guilt has changed her. Whereas in Hope’s case, her family members died to protect her. They sacrificed themselves to keep her safe. Similar to Elena, she also experiences the guilty of somewhat playing a role in their death.
Hope shares a close bond with Alaric Saltzman who serves as a father figure to Hope. Even though he and Klaus shared an antagonistic relationship for the most part, but he never differentiated between Hope and his own children. He mentored her from time to time, advised her to step out of her comfort zone, he taught her how to fight. While TVD featured numerous love triangles, the most famous one being between Elena and the Salvatores, then there was Caroline/Tyler/Klaus and many others. While Legacies also featured a few love triangles, the most prominent one being Landon, Hope, and Rafael. Similar to the Salvatores, Rafael and Landon are also brothers, even though they are foster ones.
Hope and London first met when she visited the Mystic Falls with her uncle Elijah, they stopped at the Mystic Grill where Landon served them milkshakes. There was a spark between the two, London even asked Hope if she was like to go out with him that night. however she turned him down because she didn’t want to get attached to anyone.
