Lizzie: A freaking field day? As in an entire day spent in an actual field? That’s your plan to get everyone to stop looking at Jo like she’s an axe murderer?
Alaric: You got a better one?
Lizzie: I’m so glad that you asked. Based on my own personal growth, I have created a 17 step approach.
Alaric: Elizabeth, I have got time for exactly one step and that involves you looking out for your sister while I deal with Landon, among many other things.
Lizzie: Dad, it’s not possible. I’ll have to deploy the nuclear option, which is me backsliding to using my mean girl bully tactics to persuade everyone to forgive and forget all the awful things that Jo did, and I’m just not that person anymore.
Oh, careful witches. Don’t let her catch you laughing or she might snap … your necks.Alyssa
It is I, your powerful necromancer. If only I hadn’t treated you so badly.Follower
On second thought, let the games begin.Lizzie
Alyssa: Sorry, just for clarification. Does our community include your daughter who murdered me and held the entire school hostage to stage a grotesque display of black magic power?
Alaric: Josie is back to normal and safe.
Alyssa: Thanks to Hope, who I’m noticing isn’t here at the asscrack of dawn like the rest of us. So much for unity, I guess.
Alaric: Hope, I’m sure you all can understand, was hit hard by what happened to Landon and she’s just taking some time for herself.
Wade: Speaking of, how is my boy Landon?
Alaric: Getting Landon back is my top priority and I won’t stop until I do, and that would go for any one of you.
Kaleb: Okay, so what are we all supposed to do now, and why are we wearing gym clothes?
Alaric: Something you haven’t had the chance to do in far too long. Be kids. I want you to remember what it’s like to not have to worry about something you shouldn’t have to, and grow closer together in the process. Now, before you ask me how.
M.G.: As president of the Student Activities Committee, I would like to welcome you all to the first-ever Salvatore School field day. The buses are waiting for you outside. Don’t forget to bring your smile.
Since my friend M.G. is immortal, he may never get a eulogy, but I am now convinced that everyone should hear their own eulogy, so here goes. The story of M.G. He was the son of a preacher and a shady government operative. He kept what was good from each and let go of the bad. He had his own demons, but even when they chased him into the dark, he never stayed there. Instead, he danced like a sparkler, and smiled like the sun. He wrote a new story every day, and reminded me to always find the light.Lizzie
I can’t have someone else get hurt because of me.Josie
I know this is a fairytale and all, but a nonconsensual kiss is never the answer.Hope
I was afraid of being strong. I thought being strong meant hurting Lizzie. I told myself that being powerful meant being evil, but it doesn’t. Hope is strong, and she’s good. You made a story — I made a story — where I was powerless. But that’s not true!Josie
Hope always has an awesome plan… and somehow also has time for relationship stuff, too.Chad
Just to be clear, that was for you, not me. Just in case I lose.Lizzie
Did you really think you’d be the one to bring out my good side? I don’t even think she really likes youJosie
