7 'Vampire Diaries' & 'Originals' Characters We Want to See on 'Legacies' (PHOTOS)
Caroline (Candice King)
Caroline's absence was easily explained — she's trying to find a way to prevent her daughters from having to go through the Merge — but it's about time we see her onscreen, especially since the twins know about the curse.
Bonnie (Kat Graham)
She helped Alaric and Dorian off-screen during Season 1, but if ever there was a time to bring a powerful witch onscreen
, it's now. Hope is gone, and they need to figure out how to get her back (once someone remembers her, that is). Plus, the twins are learning about the Merge, and the goal is to try to stop it from happening.
Damon (Ian Somerhalder)
Alaric (Matt Davis) could really use a friend right now, considering his fate at the school is up to the Honor Council (though that will be a bit tricky, considering Hope's gone and Rafael is a wolf). Who better for him to talk to over a drink than Damon?
Elena (Nina Dobrev)
She's the one that started it all in the Vampire Diaries
universe, and maybe she could offer these supernatural teenagers a bit of advice for dealing with growing up and
all the extra stuff that comes with what they are.
Freya (Riley Voelkel)
Who better to step in and do something to get Hope back than Freya, her aunt and
a witch? Voelkel did recur in Season 1 of Roswell, New Mexico
, but her character left town, so a return to this universe may be possible.
Rebekah (Claire Holt)
Considering Klaus (Joseph Morgan) had Rebekah watch over Hope as a baby, wouldn't it be fitting to see her return to help save her brother's child as a teenager?
Vincent (Yusuf Gatewood)
In Season 1, Hope sent Landon to New Orleans to a friend, and as Plec told TVLine
, that friend was Vincent. Why not have him show up — in Mystic Falls or during a trip to New Orleans — whether it's to help with what's going on with Hope or another supernatural problem?
Legacies did a good job of establishing itself as its own show with its first season, but for its second, we'd like to see it remember its roots.
And that means looking back at not only The Originals, from which it spun off, but also The Vampire Diaries, which kickstarted this entire universe on The CW. And with the way the Season 1 finale ended, it wouldn't be too hard to bring back some fan-favorite characters into the mix to help everyone move forward.
Four returning series and one new one are being held for the midseason.
At the end of "There's Always a Loophole," Hope (Danielle Rose Russell) erased herself when she dove into Malivore. (She also had Alaric burn every record she knew there was on her.) Could one of her relatives be key to getting her back (or at the very least someone remembering her)? It's possible, based on showrunner Julie Plec's comments to TV Guide.
"The way that Hope's storyline is shaping up, there's definitely a link to the family that got left behind ... that we will have to address at a certain point," she said.
Also, Lizzie (Jenny Boyd) and Josie (Kaylee Bryant) also now not only know about the Merge but have the Ascendant. Could someone from The Vampire Diaries — not necessarily the character you might be thinking of — be able to step in and help?
It was hard to narrow down the list!
We've already seen characters such as Matt (Zach Roerig) and Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen), but we're hoping to see some other Vampire Diaries and Originals characters in Season 2. Click through the gallery above to see our picks.
