Legacies season 4, episode 13, "Was This The Monster You Saw?" revealed Jed's werewolf origins and tragic backstory, and it finally explained his character arc and why he's such a different person now than he was at the start of the show. It's been long-established in The Vampire Diaries lore that in order to trigger their werewolf curse and turn for the first time, a dormant werewolf has to kill someone, whether intentionally or accidentally. As it turns out, Jed killed his own father. His father had been an abusive bully and commanded a young Jed to fight his childhood best friend to the death to trigger his werewolf curse. Rather than kill his friend, however, Jed revealed that he turned on his father and killed him, instead. With the full story of who and how his father had been, Legacies finally provided context for why Jed's personality arc has seemed so weird and dramatic.

Later, Mary is furious, demanding to know why the other students are getting rewarded while she is not. Zatanna explains that it is not a reward, and that Mary is just not ready for it, is too much like "him". That she is too attracted to power, without caring where the power comes from. The argument draws the attention of Fate, who demands to know what is being discussed. Reluctantly, Zatanna describes her plan to have Fate alternate hosts between herself, her father, Khalid and Traci, with each acting as host for one week out of four. This would give Fate a continually fresh host, and allow the hosts a life of their own. Fate notes that Mary is powerful, but Zatanna says she is not ready. She offers to work with her more, but Mary is incensed and demands to be sent home to Fawcett City, which Fate does. Fate agrees to Zatanna's proposal, but there is one more that must be convinced; Fate removes his helmet, and Zatara instantly declines, saying he took the helmet to save his daughter from the curse. Zatanna tells him he did it to protect her as child, but he is missing her whole life, and his own. She is ready to share the burden. Zatara relents. Khalid then takes Zatanna aside. He tells her that he is on board, that his uncle Kent was his hero and that like her he has a family obligation to take on the Helmet of Fate. But he also questions why Zatanna allowed Mary to do what she did only to penalize her after, whether Traci really understood what she was getting into and whether she would be able to put aside her altruism in favor of protecting the balance. He also asks if Zatanna had planned this all along, taking on protégés with the explicit intention of using them to free her father. Zatanna does not answer him, instead going to Traci to tell her that she is not obligated to do this, but that she is 18 and can make her own choices. Traci is in. Khalid volunteers to take on the helmet first, giving Zatanna and Zatara time together and Traci a chance to discuss the matter with her father. He dons the helmet, becoming Doctor Fate. 041b061a72
