School is officially in session at the Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted!
We know you're just dying to find out how much has really changed at the Salvatore Boarding House since it became a school on Legacies, which is why we decided to take the official tour from the Saltzman twins themselves! Josie (Kaylee Bryant) and Lizzie (Jenny Boyd) are the certified welcome wagon for the Salvatore School — and why shouldn't they be, they were its very first students! — and TV Guide was lucky enough to get an exclusive tour of our own from Bryant and Boyd when we visited the set of Legacies earlier this month.
The girls took us behind the scenes to point out all the secrets you never would have known to look for (who would have guessed the spell casting classroom also doubled as Alaric's office), plus a few well-hidden Easter eggs from The Vampire Diaries and The Originals!
The Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley) memorial library, for example, has a treasure trove of knick-knacks from The Vampire Diaries! Stefan's daylight ring and one of his journals rest comfortably in a memorial case along with Elena's (Nina Dobrev) vervain necklace. You also might want to take a closer look at the school gym, since the set was actually adapted from Marcel's (Charles Michael Davis) loft on The Originals.
The twins showed us other iconic sets ripped straight from The Vampire Diaries like the living room, which has been transformed into a Great Hall, where kids hang out and float books between classes. They've also recreated the kitchen set — you know, where Bonnie (Kat Graham) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) made vampire pancakes together — which is apparently the new make out spot for students. We hunted for Damon's giantic four-poster bed, but sadly, it looks like it might not have survived the transition from private home to private school. Let's all just pretend Damon and Elena took it with them when they moved out, OK?
Legacies airs Thursdays at 9/8c on The CW.
