There's something I need to tell you. I just don't know how. So, to make you understand, maybe I should start from the end. [...] On second thought, I'll just start at the beginning. [...] And that's it. Which brings me to my question. What do we do next?

Maybe I Should Start From The End is the eighth episode of the first season of Legacies and the eighth episode of the series overall.
