Professor Vardemus and his less-than-altruistic agenda begin to surface in new official stills from Legacies Season 2.
The CW has released photos from the season's seventh episode, ominously titled "It Will All Be Painfully Clear Soon Enough," that show Landon and his girlfriend Josie confronting the Salvatore Boarding School for the Young & Gifted's new headmaster. Meanwhile, Josie and her fraternal twin sister Lizzie commiserate with Hope as she contemplates leaving town.
It Will All Be Painfully Clear Soon Enough (Ep# 207)THE RACE TO CLOSE THE MALIVORE PORTAL -- After deciding that leaving town would be for the best, Hope (Danielle Rose Russell) gets pulled back in after Josie (Kaylee Bryant) comes up with a risky plan to close the Malivore portal. Elsewhere, Alaric (Matthew Davis) and Dorian (guest star Demetrius Bridges) make an alarming discovery about Professor Vardemus (guest star Alexis Denisof), while Rafael (Peyton Alex Smith) learns some upsetting news about Landon's (Aria Shahghasemi) future. Jenny Boyd also stars. Lauren Petzke directed the episode written by Jimmy Mosqueda & Cynthia Adarkwa (#207). Original airdate 12/5/2019.
The Malivore Portal was a gateway into a hellish dimension introduced in The Vampire Diaries. With one opening near the town of Mystic Falls, supernatural mayhem is sure to follow.
Vardemus arrived to helm the Salvatore School after its previous headmaster, Alaric Saltzman, was voted out. However, while Vardemus has attempted to grow closer to Josie after witnessing her power, Alaric has since become the Principal of Mystic Falls High School.
