Since The Vampire Diaries ended in 2017, fans have been “dying” to know what happened to their favorite characters. Luckily, the characters linger—the original vampires did promise “always and forever” after all.

The spin-off show Legacies follows a new generation of supernatural teens, including Hope Mikaelsson (Danielle Rose Russell), daughter of original vampire Klaus. In addition to second-generation Vampire Diaries stars—Josie (Kaylee Bryant) and Lizzie (Jenny Boyd) are the twin daughters of Alaric Saltzman and Caroline Forbes—Legacies features several connections to its sister show.

Although Damon and Stefan do not appear on the spin-off, fans who pay close attention will find subtle nods to the brooding brothers. We gathered references to The Vampire Diaries you may have missed while sinking your fangs into the new episodes.
