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.

In Season 1, Episode 10, Josie reveals that Damon and Elena now have children. “Damon Salvatore has been as generous as he can be,” Josie says. “But he and Elena have kids of their own that they need to take care of.” The name of their daughter is also made known: Stefanie Salvatore, in honor of Stefan.

By Michelle Darrisaw

Playing a student-athlete on The CW’s All American isn’t a stretch for Geffri Maya—it’s her destiny. Before landing the recurring role as Simone Hicks in Season 2 of the sports drama, the 21-year-old grew up dancing and training under famed choreographer Debbie Allen.

The muscle and movement memory she developed at Allen’s dance academy came in handy when performing the celebrated dance sequence in the Season 3 episode “All American: Homecoming,” which launched the new spinoff series of the same name. “Luckily, my relation to Simone and the dichotomy [of the character] is not that far,” says Maya. “I didn’t grow up in Beverly Hills like Simone, but I was exposed to different walks of life in South Central L.A. that play a huge part in who I am today.”

Now the ball is in Maya’s court, as she takes the lead in All American: Homecoming. In the spinoff, Maya’s character embarks on a new journey as a college student/tennis champ at a fictional HBCU in Atlanta named Bringston University.

All American: Homecoming airs Mondays at 9p.m.ET/PT on The CW and streams on CWTV.com.

To accurately bring Simone and her tennis pursuits to life, Maya did not have to look far for inspiration. She pulled from her real-life experience attending Clark Atlanta University, a historically Black college and university. “Being able to translate the HBCU experience in Homecoming feels like my purpose,” she adds.

The health-conscious, self-proclaimed “breakfast enthusiast” says she’s focused on longevity and having a legacy in Hollywood akin to Cicely Tyson’s. Her game plan? Embracing beauty from within while acing her sculpting and wellness goals.

Finding her perfect match

I’ve been dancing since I was 7, but learning how to play tennis was a challenge. I had never picked up a racket in my life.

The second we found out a pilot was possible, I got an amazing Black female trainer named Troy Titus. To work with someone who looks like me and cares about physical, emotional, and mental health is inspirational. It took a lot of hard work, consistency, and diligence and pushed me in ways that were necessary.

Setting boundaries

Eating brings me joy. I try not to diet because it can have a negative connotation that can be harmful depending on how you view yourself. What I have are boundaries.

I can’t eat and drink the same things I did when I was 14, so I fuel my body with food that will allow me to perform my best when working 15-hour days. I take care of my body and skin because what you put in is what you get out.

Minding her assets

Honestly, I focus on the booty! I do squats, donkey kicks, fire hydrants, and deadlifts. I incorporate full-body, arms, and crunches, but who doesn’t want a lifted and shifted butt? I have an athletic frame that I used to have a hard time accepting.

Now I think it’s important to take care of the body you’re blessed with. Never do something because of someone else’s beauty standards.

Serving looks

I love wearing workout gear that is comfortable and cozy and makes me feel beautiful, such as Fabletics and Aritzia. One of my best friends, Taylor Polidore, has a clothing brand called Good Body Athletica.

She started this company to let everyone know that no matter the goals or struggles, your body is good because it’s yours. Like me, she truly cares about being confident within herself as a Black woman.

Practicing self-love

Photo: Ser Baffo/The CW -- (C) 2021 The CW Network, LLC. All Rights Reserved.

My favorite thing to do is my nighttime routine. If I could have a spa in the house, I would. I wash, exfoliate, and put my oils on. How I go to bed plays a huge part in how I wake up. In terms of feeling good and starting my day, I must cleanse my body, wash my face, brush my teeth, and prepare my vessel. All that leads to how I feel about myself, and it plays a part, physically, in how I adapt and exhaust that energy. Self-love is the key to everything, because if we wake up every day and
don’t like what we see, it has a domino effect on how we carry ourselves in the world.

Perfecting her form

The beautiful thing about getting the opportunity to portray a young tennis hopeful is knowing these people existed. I studied the courage and diligence of Althea Gibson.

When it comes to Coco Gauff, Venus and Serena Williams, Sloane Stephens, and Naomi Osaka on the court, all these women exude confidence and love for their sport. But I had to think beyond surface-level and physicality to channel what it means to be a Black female athlete.

It’s more than what they accomplished sports-wise; it’s about who they are and what we can all take from that.

Fueling her day

BREAKFAST:
If it’s brunch, I’ll have shrimp and grits or catfish. But I love scrambled eggs or a frittata with diced potatoes and chicken apple sausage, or perfectly cooked French toast.

LUNCH:
I can eat Thai food at any time. I don’t like super-heavy lunches—just something to get me through the day. I always enjoy a nice salmon with arugula salad or rice on the side. Pasta is good at lunchtime, too.

DINNER:
I like for dinner to be a surprise: I recently had steak frites, and it was so good!

SPLURGE:
Whenever I’m celebrating something with my friends, we always have crab legs and wine. I love a good seafood boil!

A bite from the Protoclown poisons and forces its victim to confront the worst thing they have ever done. The Super Squad lures the clown to a bonfire so it can bite Hope (Danielle Rose Russell) and force her to remember killing Landon (Aria Shahghasemi). The memory rekindles old emotions and brings Hope closer to turning her humanity switch back on.

Necromancer

Once an all-powerful monster, his reputation was reversed by Malivore (Douglas Tait). The Necromancer briefly finds peace after returning a supernatural knife to Malivore yet reclaims necromancy to reinstate his magic powers. The current season finds him trapped in limbo with Landon.

Cupid

Cupid’s arrow reveals feelings of love in whoever it targets. It brings Alyssa and MG together, and even ignites a love triangle between Dorian (Demetrius Bridges), Jed (Ben Levin), and Emma (Karen David). Things take a gruesome turn when the winged creature is found eating someone’s heart. The “Super-Squad” later discovers that they were not dealing with Cupid after all: The creature was actually Pothos, an erote that tried to eat the hearts of both Hope and Landon.

Leprechaun

While the Salvatore School faces financial troubles, the creature attracts customers to a fundraiser. However, their luck is reversed when the leprechaun eats all of the money, as well as some supernatural objects. When the leprechaun later attempts to strangle Alaric, Cleo (Omono Okojie) must take matters into her own hands.

Seemingly a bartender, the man is actually a henchman working for Triad, an organization on a mission to kill all supernatural beings. Hope throws darts at him to discover his motive: Triad wants to destroy the tribrid. Before he can reveal the names of his employers, his Triad brand bursts into flames and kills him.

Mummy

Among the many other spine-chilling supernatural creatures the Super Squad has faced are:

Krampus: In a violent Christmas at the Salvatore School, the characters must fight a monster who chooses antagonism over holiday cheer. In defeating the creature, they save Santa, who it had trapped.

The Headless Horseman: The monster takes Landon hostage and brings him to Triad. It also steals a supernatural object from Landon to give Malivore, but fortunately Hope is able to stop it and save her boyfriend just in time.

A Unicorn: The characters soon discover that the beautiful animal is not as innocent as it seems: It harbors a parasite that controls minds. When students are infected during a school-wide talent show, Hope, Landon, Alaric, and Dorian must undo the damage.

Plot twists are a part of Riverdale’s DNA. Nearly every episode has a “question mark” to be addressed during the next episode. From secret identities to surprise romances, unexpected turns repeatedly leave viewers on edge. Remember when the Black Hood was revealed toward the end of Season 2? Or when Betty’s mom and sister joined a cult? How about when Jughead’s sister, Jellybean, was on a rebellious streak?

Riverdale’s subplots have been strange and unexpected to say the least. We gathered 10 of the series’ biggest jaw-droppers to date. (Warning: Spoilers ahead!)

The ruthless neighborhood murderer turned out to be ... Betty’s dad? Unbeknownst to Betty (Lili Reinhart), Hal Cooper (Lochlyn Munro) was on a killing streak, determined to eradicate sinners. He murdered seven people in total, including Ms. Grundy, Midge, and The Sugarman.

When Jellybean Made Mock-Murder Tapes

Jughead's sister Jellybean (Trinity Likins) rallied her friends to become the new neighborhood stalkers—all to draw attention from her brother, who was about to leave for college. The group wore masks of Jughead (Cole Sprouse) and his friends and created graphic murder movies. VHS tapes were planted on characters' doorsteps to spark conversation and spook the town.

Betty's Sibling Imposter

Talk about a Cooper family reunion gone wrong. Chic (Hart Denton) pretended to be Charles, his roommate and Betty’s older half-brother, after supposedly murdering him. When Chic started to display strange behaviors (staring at Betty while she slept!), it didn’t take long for his true identity to be revealed.

Charles and Chic's Love Story

The former roommates were actually lovers—a fact that came to light when Charles visited Chic in jail. The duo wound up in prison together, yet escaped thanks to Hiram. Then they headed straight to Juniper and Dagwood's party, eager to have Alice Cooper (Madchen Amick) officiate their wedding.

When Everyone Abandoned Their Lives to Join a Cult

Alice and Polly Cooper, Kevin Keller (Casey Cott), Cheryl Blossom (Madelaine Petsch), and others were loyal to The Farm, a local cult led by Edgar Evernever (Chad Michael Murray). And not just any cult—an organ-harvesting community selling human hearts for profit.

Jughead's Fake Death

The main character’s death was arguably the most tragic turn of events in the series. It almost seemed too brutal to be true—and it was. All along, Jughead was hiding in Dilton’s underground bunker, finding a way to prove Bret and Donna guilty of trying to murder him. Betty, Veronica (Camila Mendes), and Archie (KJ Apa) were in on his plan while other students, and at-home viewers, were tricked.

Betty and Archie kissed, even though Archie was dating Veronica at the time. He even expressed his emotions with a romantic serenade. In a surprising twist, “Barchie” only stayed together to sway others into thinking Jughead had died.

Archie's Illegal Affair

Archie abandoned high-school romance to pursue an older woman: Ms. Grundy, the music teacher at Riverdale High. However, Ms. Grundy (Sarah Habel) wasn’t who she claimed to be. Her real name was Jennifer Gibson. She had changed her identity after running away from an abusive ex-husband.

After forcing himself on Veronica and Cheryl, Nick St. Clair (Graham Phillips) was chased out of town by Hiram Lodge (Jaime Luna) and injured in a car crash as punishment. However, Nick returned months later and kidnapped Archie, insisting that Veronica sleep with him before he would agree to free Archie. The tables turned when Archie and Veronica used drugs to hold Nick captive instead.

When Cheryl Joined the Southside Serpents

Ashamed of her daughter’s true identity, Penelope Blossom (Nathalie Boltt) sent Cheryl to conversion therapy. She was imprisoned at the Sisters of Quiet Mercy and tortured by Sister Woodhouse. When Cheryl finally escaped, she joined the Serpents, where she could embrace her sexuality with girlfriend Toni Topaz (Vanessa Morgan).
