‘Legacies’ Premiere Recap: Hope Seeks Revenge Years After Klaus’ Death

Hope Mikaelson returned with a vengeance in the Thursday, October 25, series premiere of Legacies, a spinoff of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals.

Like Father, Like Daughter

Hope (Danielle Rose Russell) seemed pretty well adjusted for a teenager whose parents, Klaus Mikaelson and Hayley Marshall, both died before she graduated high school, much like Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev). Confident in her powers, Hope teamed up with Alaric (Matt Davis) to save a young werewolf named Rafael (Peyton Alex Smith) from an attempted exorcism. There, she ran into Landon (Aria Shahghasemi), the former Mystic Falls resident she had a crush on before he moved away.

Hope, headmaster Alaric, Landon and Rafael traveled to Salvatore Boarding School in Mystic Falls after the rescue. Hope and Alaric filled Landon in on the magical goings-on at the school with the intention of getting information about Rafael, his foster brother, and then compelling him to forget. When compulsion didn’t work, Alaric locked Landon in the cellar until what he assumed was vervain passed through his system. In the meantime, Rafael broke him out, and Landon bonded with Hope over her losses and her unwillingness to make friends or get close to anyone because of her past. The two even kissed.

The next morning, Landon asked Alaric if he could stay at the school since he had no home, but the headmaster denied his request. So Landon pretended the compulsion worked (Alaric noted that since it didn’t, Landon must be a supernatural being), stole a magical knife and left.

Alaric, thinking Landon was going to tell the world about the school, alerted Hope, but she was in denial. As she tracked Landon using dark magic, the knife began glowing. Alaric and Hope — with some help from Sheriff Matt Donovan (Zach Roerig) — later discovered the bus Landon was traveling on and everyone else on it was incinerated, while Hope vowed to be the villain of Landon’s story since he turned out to not be the hero of hers.

Where in the World Is Caroline Forbes?

Caroline (Candice King), who ran Salvatore Boarding School alongside Alaric on The Originals, was not seen or mentioned during the premiere. However, the pair’s daughters, Josie (Kaylee Bryant) and Lizzie (Jenny Boyd), were front and center and both somewhat disturbed.

Josie was nursing a broken heart over her ex Penelope (Lulu Antariksa). She lashed out after she caught Penelope kissing her friend MG (Quincy Fouse). Josie later seemed to set her sights on Rafael.

Meanwhile, Lizzie, who believed herself to be broken, also took an interest in Rafael and destroyed the school kitchen with magical fury when he rejected her. She also complained about all the time her father spent training Hope one-on-one.

Legacies airs on The CW Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET.

The Birth, Death & Rebirth of Irish Single Pot Still Whiskey

The War of the Spanish Succession. The War of the Quadruple Alliance. The War of Jenkins’ Ear. The War of the Austrian Succession. The Jacobite Rebellion. The Seven Years’ War (A.K.A. the French and Indian War). The American War of Independence. The French Revolutionary Wars.

The King of England fought a hell of a lot of wars in the 1700s, from the beginning of the century right up to the very end. In the process, Britain gained various islands in the Caribbean, saved its North American colonies, lost its North American colonies, and engineered a permanent split between Scotch and Irish whiskies—in the process giving us that uniquely delightful spirit known, since 2012, as “Irish single pot still whiskey.” (Before that, it was “pure pot still,” and before that—way before that—it was “old still,” which we’ll get to later.)

Just to be clear, the whiskey in question is the uniquely Irish style that is double- or (usually) triple-distilled in copper pot stills from a mix of malted and unmalted barley (neither can drop below 30-percent of the total mix of grains) and up to 5-percent other grains, if desired, and barrel-aged for at least three years. The large whack of unmalted barley gives the whiskey a subtle funk, often described as “musky” or “mossy,” that sets it apart it from a 100-percent malt whiskey and makes it interesting, much like a tiny hit of peat-smoke does to a Speyside Scotch malt whiskey.

Jason Van Dyke Found Guilty Of Murder In Shooting Death Of LaQuan McDonald

US-CRIME-CHICAGO-POLICE-TRIAL-court

Somewhat surprisingly, former Chicago police officer Jason Van Dyke was found guilty for the death  LaQuan McDonald. The fact many people are shocked a cop was taken to task is a testament to the state of the justice system. 

Van Dyke, who is white, was found guilty of second-degree murder in the shooting death of the Black 17-year-old in 2014.

Reports CNN:

Chicago police Officer Jason Van Dyke was found guilty Friday of second-degree murder in the 2014 fatal shooting of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald.

Van Dyke, who was also found guilty of 16 counts of aggravated battery, sat impassively in a dark suit — his shoulders slumped — as the verdicts were read in the high-profile case. At one point, he sipped water from a bottle. He was found not guilty of official misconduct.
The officer’s wife sat stoically, arms folded, as the long verdict was delivered. His father lowered his head while some members of the McDonald family held hands.
Van Dyke’s bond was revoked and sentencing was scheduled for October 31. He was led out of the courtroom in handcuffs.

Van Dyke is reportedly the first Chicago police officer to be even charged with first-degree murder since 1980. Think about that.

The convicted murderer faces a minimum of 6 years in prison when he is sentenced.

Good riddance.

Black Women Face High Risk, Dangers And Death Rates With Breast Cancer

Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October presents another opportunity to spread information about the disease and how it affects Black women. The disease is responsible for a high death rate in women of color, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Black women are 40 percent more likely to die from breast cancer despite doctors diagnosing the disease in African-American and white women at about the same rate, the CDC reported. Also, Black women are more often found to have triple-negative breast cancer, an aggressive type that frequently returns after treatment.

Age is also a big factor: breast cancer incidence rates were higher among African-American women younger than 60 years old but lower among those who are 60 or older.

One reason for this statistic could be that medical professionals tend to find this cancer at an earlier stage in white women.  Also, Black women may have inadequate medical care, including limited access to cancer screening technology.

Doctors encourage women, especially those at high risk due to a family history or having BRCA1 or BRCA2 genes, to get out ahead of the disease. Early detection measures such as mammograms and screenings are strongly recommended. Women can visit local hospitals that offer low-cost mammograms or call their local American Cancer Society chapter for help with screenings or doctor referrals.

In addition, researchers continue to look into why some women are more susceptible to triple-negative breast cancer, in order to find better treatment options.

Women can also choose a healthier lifestyle for a better chance of lowering risks for the disease. BreastCancer.org recommends exercise, a nutritious diet and avoiding smoking and alcohol as important in the battle against breast cancer — one that many women can win regardless of race.

Many women are speaking out to spread awareness about breast cancer and helping women to fight it. Serena Williams posted a powerful message about the disease recently.
