I liked the episode mainly cause of it's Christmas theme. lol

Glad Raf is getting to meet one of his parents, thanks to Landon.

Poor Josie This is exactly why I didn't want that pairing cause of this exact outcome

Landon/Hope back together.

I like the Lizzie/Sebastian scenes. not feeling them as a couple, tho.

Wow it was the Necromancer this whole time!

I thought this would be a Christmas episode one that wouldn't do anything for the plot but it was Huge for plot.

Malivore closed now? Handon is back and big reveal

Episode: That said I wasn't too emotionally invested in it. I was kinda looking for MG. I saw a con panel that the writers wanted to do a Christmas episode and have MG horrified that his friends were talking about killing Santa.

I am also disappointed with Handon. Don't get me wrong I am a Handon fan and want Hope to be Happy but Landon didn't even leave it was barely a roadtrip.

Lizzie: I don't know why but I like Lizzie driving. Disliked her travelbuddy though.

Lizzie has been awesome this season but I don't like her and Sebastian. While they were together with Sebastian's seduction.

I was like: No Lizzie you are too good for this. You won't fall for this. Have some standards woman...Okay why doesn't the car burst in flames as Landon resurrects.

Lizzie was awesome in every episode up to that point oh well.

I suspected it was the Necromancer based on powers but the personality was too sneaky I thought if he ever came back he would announce it around town.

Haven't seen it yet but i read about it and it seems like it'll be a good episode. Ill post more detailed thoughts after I watch tomorrow.

The Necromancer under the hood is a shock and imo strange. I just dont feel like it fits at all, but I guess we'll find out how it ties together.

Glad that Rafael is seemingly getting his own storyline.

Landon back already is super duper lame to me, they could have waited at least 3 episodes before putting Handon back together. Don't get me wrong, I dont like Landon/Josie at all and I am glad he broke it off, and if I had to pick between the two Id rather have Handon but like... they are SO rushed. They are just like Stelena use to be, I'm sorry, but no. Its boring AF. I want more angst. I was actually enjoying them when they that had. But hey, maybe that means they will break up at the end of this season or early next. I can dream.

Lizzie/Landon friendship is everything.

Personally i love Sebastian. He gives me Damon vibes and Im here for it. I love him and Lizzie together, however, again, i dont like rushed stuff. Yes they kissed already but I was hoping they would have taken a bit more time with those two. Regardless, I like them. Sebastian can be toned down a tad though, sometimes he just comes off like hes trying to be seductive TOO much.

Again, what is the point of the siblings? lol

Its because we were tricked. Team Hope was treating him like comedy relief when he is actually one of the most powerful Supernatural creatures I've seen and smart too.

When I think of him I think of the time Alaric hit him with a shovel or his petulant rants but he is smart and sneaky and deadly.

He knows to do recon and emotional manipulation sending Jo in. He raised an undead force to attack Hope. He knew to decoy everybody while he secured the Malivore key, The supernaturals he raises and control have access to their powers. He was smart enough to interrogate a ghost to learn about Malivore.

As the cloak he hangs out in a cemetery. raised a zombie, used a zombie eye to spy on the school.

All in All he is he was just proud of his work and he has shown enough to show he has skill.

Also realized two things.
1. That was why the Sphynx killed itself the Necromancer could just bring him back.

2. He is planning to bring Clarke back.

He has the Clarke's body.
While he dropped Clarke's head to close Malivore rift but remember that was the SimuLandon body Clarke's consciousness was in the artifact in the chest. The Artifact that was used to create the body in the first place.

I just found him to be so cheesey and ridiculous and his episode was my least favorite so I'm not that thrilled to see him back or have more of him around.

I watched the episode finally. Decent episode but not my favorite. I sort of enjoyed the Christmas theme but considering for them its October I found it a bit odd.

Rafael’s parents are alive? Glad to get more of his backstory but it was sort of boring and I hope its not a one episode thing like they did with MG. They need to really build a storyline there to get me to care.

Its annoying how the show is trying to make us feel bad for Clarke but I do kinda like them working together and being in scenes. They have a decent chemistry.

Upbeat josie was funny and same with Alaric and Dorian. Glad to see Alaric back as headmaster! Crampus was a bit lame to me.

Cannot believe Landon is already back at the school. LAMEEEEEEE. Not happy with him and Hope back together but I'm hoping it means they will break up this season. With that said I am mighty glad that Landon and Josie are done and I really hope they never revisit that again lol.

Lizzie/Sebastian were fun to watch but I'm not really sure where those two can go and how the writers can keep it interesting.

Lizzie/Landon sharing scenes is my favoriteeee.

This episode was fun for the Christmas cheer but there were slower bits. I didn't love all the separation from the characters. I think this was one of the weaker episodes of the season. But still really enjoyable and so much of the plot was moving forward which I liked.

It was great to see Pedro! Sad we don't get to see more of him.

I enjoyed the Clarke and Hope interactions a lot. I want to hate Clarke but a part of me likes him. It was so dumb of her to let him out of his cage though! So dumb! I loved the phonecall at the end. I think he could potentially be redeemable.

The Raf/Landon storyline was boring. I am glad to get more of Raf, but IDK, randomly throwing in this father storyline is a bit weird to me. It was cute when they hugged though and I am glad Raf wanted to stay with him for a while but it sucks he wont be in the episodes.

Sebastian and Lizzie were really fun to watch, he does remind me of Damon. Their sex scene was way too fast imo, but I guess the tension was building.

Lizzie going to get Landon was so cute <3. I love their interactions.

The santa vs krampus fight was so weird lol.

Kaleb getting his car was cute!

Landon is back already? And he and Hope got back together??? That was SO FAST. I would have been so much better if he just said he was taking a trip with Raf and would be back soon and that he would decide then or something.
