Welcome back to my favorite recap of the week! Previously on The Originals, Davina performed a spell to untie Sophie and Hayley, Rebekah was going to leave New Orleans then did it with Marcel and then Marcel discovered where The Originals are staying and took Hayley! Full recap can be read HERE.
Well well well look who’s back in town and taken Hayley for hostage! As Klaus and Elijah interrupt Marcel’s festivities to track down baby mama, we discover that she is not in his possession. It seems like none other than Tyler has gotten hold of dear Hayles and taken her to a distant place where Tyler tells her that her birthmark is a sign of werewolf royalty.
Testing his way through hybrid experimentation, Tyler uses Hayley’s blood to turn a lone wolf into a hybrid. To our surprise and his, it works! Tyler has his hands full as he wants to destroy the baby so that Klaus can’t produce more hybrids and take over. As Tyler’s new hybrid wakes up, Hayley instructs him to keep Tyler away from her and he does, making us think that perhaps the new hybrid will listen to it’s maker, the baby.
Hayley escapes Tyler and runs into Elijah! While Tyler encounters Klaus. The two angry hybrids have at it while Hayley tells Elijah that she can take care of herself. As Tyler stands up to Klaus by calling him a failure, hand in heart, Klaus realizes that all Tyler wants is death and to rest in peace. He lets Tyler go and tells him he doesn’t deserve peace and to go on living as nothing.
Rebekah on the other hand goes to Marcel thinking he took Hayley, he explains that he didn’t and the two have a talk about Rebekah leaving Klaus and standing up to him. Talks of killing Klaus come up but Rebekah stands away from it. Klaus can’t be killed and trying so will result in death.
Elijah now on team Hayley stands up to Klaus about how Klaus is wanting to have this baby to rule and make an army. Angry at the thought that no one in his family trusts him he does what Klaus usually does, throws a fit.
Then it’s like, “oh no he didn’t”! Frustrated and hurt Klaus attacks Elijah and bites him. Knowing that a bite from a hybrid will be deadly, though being that Elijah is an original he won’t die, but still how rude!
Davina had her share of happiness when Marcel takes Josh, the vampire compelled to listen to Klaus, to have his memory wiped. After interacting with Davina, Josh and her have a nice talk and they grow to be friends. But Marcel has instructed Davina to make him forget about her. Josh tells her that he will keep her a secret and that it was nice to talk to someone normal, as in a normal superhuman witch with a gay,club going vampire. The sure make good besties though!
And I never thought I’d dislike Tyler as much as I do now! The episode ends with Tyler in front of Marcel telling him all about Hayley, the baby and how Klaus can start his own army of hybrids and the potential end of the vampire species. Goodness gracious where does it all end! Leave the baby alone!
Every week they just leave us hanging and wanting more! Can’t wait for what’s to come for Tyler and will Caroline be coming back to kick T’s booty?
