We Finally Know Why Caroline Forbes-Salvatore Has Been MIA on 'Legacies'

By Anna Quintana

You don't need to watch The Originals or Vampire Diaries to enjoy the CW spinoff, Legacies, but it definitely doesn't hurt. Fans learned this the hard way on last week's episode when Jo Laughlin (Alaric Saltzman's first love) confronted Alaric about the twins' upcoming birthday. 

To briefly recap, sisters Josie and Lizzie were visibly upset when they discovered that their mom Caroline would not be attending their Sweet Sixteen. Before returning to the Afterlife, Jo, who happens to be the twins' biological mom, asked Alaric a very important question — one OG Vampire Diaries and The Originals fans definitely know the answer to. 

"Do they know what happens when they turn 22?" Jo asked, to which Alaric responded, "No, not yet. And we don't want them to know until we've exhausted all our options." It was soon revealed that Caroline was skipping their birthday to follow a lead to prevent the twins from ever needing to know the answer.
