The Originals Mid-Season Finale Recap: “Reigning Pain in New Orleans”

Originals

While it might have been a couple weeks since The Originals mid season finale, I just barely had time to catch up and watch it on CWTV.com. Up until now this new hit show has been my #1 go to and it keeps me wanting more.

If you’ve been like me and haven’t been caught up on all the great stories, dramas and fights going on recap the previous episode, “The River in Reverse”  HERE!

To make it short and sweet Klaus had left his brother and sister and had taken over Marcel’s territory claiming it as his own. He’s feeling betrayed by Elijah and Rebekah and took Hayley with him so as to not have anyone take his unborn child.

Now that Klaus reigns over New Orleans he is ready to let the blood flow. As he hosts a dinner and gives a speech about the vamp community and that his next step as leader is to kill all the werewolves. We flashback to Marcel and Rebekah discussing loyalty and staying alive. Then Elijah and Rebekah decide to rescue Hayley but she says no, she is fine but her family and people are in danger. Klaus on the other hand is still using Cami as his right hand scribe and now Marcel knows all about it. Little does he know that Cami has been leaving notes all around her apartment to remember why she keeps forgetting things after Klaus compels her.

 

Klaus as the new commander has a meeting with the “humans” about the rules and regulations in the town, not one to follow the rules he tells them his personal terms and to better watch it with the rudeness. While the vamps are scavenging for werewolves Elijah and Rebekah decide to let them know that they should leave. As the vamps leave the campgrounds Elijah senses a wolf, Eve is her name and she tells them that the wolves know how to protect themselves and they can’t be found unless they want to be found. The only problem is that the newbie wolves don’t know the best hiding spots, that’s where Elijah and Rebekah’s help come in hand. As they go to another campground they let the vampires know that they are serious, do NOT harm the werewolves…or else.

The Originals Recap: “Girl in New Orleans”

Originals

Need some dirt on your newest obsession?

With only four episodes in, The CW’s The Originals is already making fans fall off their seats with anticipation of what is to come.

Last week’s episode was a whirlwind of emotions. Klaus and Rebeka began plans to take down Marcel, or win back his trust. So much action and drama emerged with Marcel and his best confidant Thierry who happened to be in love with a witch named Katie, yes the same one that had been tipping off witch and ware wolf activity. Theirry ended up breaking the number one rule Marcel had of killing another vampire and is sentenced to imprisonment only to be interrupted by Katie who tries to kill Marcel for punishing Thierry. With a great scene of spells and witchcraft Katie’s fate falls to death by Klaus.

Things got spicy with Marcel and his new love interest Cami as she realized what temper he had, and my heart skipped a beat when a spark emerged between Klaus and Cami. Klaus even closer to getting what he wants, got Marcel to give back Elijah as a thank you for saving his life.

*Spoilers ahead

Now in last night’s episode Klaus begins his own agenda of getting Davina and rescuing Elijah. Snooping and secret plotting begins as the Dauphine Street Music Festival festivities begin and Davina is itching to be out and about.

Klaus compels Cami to watch over Davina while she gets the green light from Marcel to join the party. As the story continues we discover that Davina has a little secret of her own as she is fascinated with an old crush, Tim,  who she meets up with. But what little Davina doesn’t know is that Klaus will use Tim to his advantage and make a deal with Davina. Things get heated up when Klaus plays mind games with her about why Marcel would have her all locked up, while if she went with Klaus, he could offer her freedom.

Dearest Rebekah on the other hand, finds her way  to the secret hiding spot that holds Elijah and quarters Davina, by way of a priest, though to our surprise even the priest in this town keep a secret of his own. Not one to be compelled because of vervain, he goes forth to tell Marcel of Rebekah’s discovery. On the bright side she does find dear Elijah who informs her, hallucinatory version of him I may add, that he is safe and has his own plot on bringing Davina to the Originals side.

Let’s not forget about momma-to-be,  while Hayley is getting a check up, witch Agnes has a plan of her own to terminate baby wolfpire -yeah my own name I came up with. With many out to get Hayles, Rebekah comes to her aid only to be shot with an arrow and when she awakes Hayley is nowhere to be found. Scared to think that she lost her and the baby, she calls Klaus for help. In the end Hayley finds her way back safely but with many injuries that heal quickly due to her hybrid baby.

The plot drives forward as we discover that Cami’s twin brother committed murder and suicide at the church where he was an alter server. Cami distressed with her new found information has thoughts of it being an accident and a possible compulsion from a vampire. After Klaus compels her to forget about it, we start to wonder if he had anything to do with it?

Just as things start to get real good, I’m on the edge of my seat, Elijah has resurrected from his sleep!

This plot driven show is incredible! Every minute of watching it makes you never want it to end. Next week brings us a great story involving Davina and Elijah as well as Klaus getting more info from Marcel.

Until next time!
