In November it was confirmed that there would be a few alumni returns in season 2 of Legacies, one of those returns being Kai Parker. Kai has been locked inside of the prison world since Bonnie Bennett helped Josie and Lizzie create a new ascendant after the previous two were destroyed creating a new prison world and locking Kai inside in season 8 episode 14 of The Vampire Diaries. Now, Entertainment Weekly has revealed the first look at Kai’s return to the The Vampire Diaries universe. In the article, Julie Plec spoke briefly about Kai’s return:
“The prison world is inescapable up until now, so it’s not so much how he comes back into our fold as how we enter his,”
In this weeks episode of Legacies, Ric and the twins get locked inside of said prison world. This will undoubtedly lead to a shaky family reunion because, after all, in season 6 of The Vampire Diaries Kai attempts to kill the twins in utero so they can’t ascend as leaders of the gemini coven and again in season 8 to no avail as Alaric and Caroline save them. Not to mention he’s the reason their biological mom, Jo, died on her wedding day.
