If you missed the season premiere read the recap here.
We start off this week’s episode, “Alive and Kicking,” with a flashback of Klaus and Elijah back in the old days with a house full of dead people and their brother Kol who ends up being put to sleep with the stake by Klaus.
We go back to current day and see Elijah at the house with a bloody corpse in the front yard. Looks like Hayley has been a crazed new hybrid. She seems to have an appetite for witches and growing more savage as the days go by, thanks to Klaus who edges her on. Thus Elijah goes to Klaus to stop making her a wild animal but he tells her that she is embracing her new self.
Elijah is feeling nostalgic about the way that Hayley is acting thinking about the days in the past when Klaus was a terror, nothing new though. Elijah goes to Marcel to make a deal with him to find the white stake, but why does he want it? He tells Marcel to make Davina look for it and then we see her with Klaus’ dad. But it looks like someone who is working with the witch mom is stalking Davina. — I don’t like this witch as she is making new moonlight rings for the wolves and is for sure going to try and destroy the vampires.
Hayley and Klaus are in the woods trying to find some part of her pack, they are both clearly distressed over their daughter. He makes her concentrate to find some clue as to where her family could be.
The best new show of last season is gearing up to takeover Monday night on The CW and we are ecstatic about the return.
So let’s start the recap of “Rebirth!”
In the beginning we see Rebekah with Klaus and Hayley’s baby telling her the current story of their lives in New Orleans.
Elijah is trying to buy a building and Klaus is going mad while Hayley is grieving her baby that she had to give away so that it wouldn’t be harmed. Then we see Marcel and Camille together in bed so lovey-dovey but then we hear her say, “No strings, no plans.”
Davina is a free witch and living a regular life, well as much as she can. Then when she goes into the record store a werewolf comes in and tries to kill the owner since he is a vampire.
There is a new witch in town and she is quite mysterious, from what I have captured in previews and clips is that she could be the Originals’ witch mother.
Opening scene a girl in a tomb screaming for help, Celeste is giving a guided tour to tourists in the cemetery and hello girl blasts out of the brick wall. Lo and behold it’s none other than Monique, Sophie’s niece!
Recap last week’s episode HERE, to refresh your memory on what’s happening on The Originals.
The church is up and running and Father Kieran welcomes the new people into the church. While he says goodbye to all the church people one witch grabs his hand, curses him and marks an x on his hand. Death is on the horizon for him. Now Marcel knows about the resurrected witch and thinks this is how they will get Davina back. Hayley thinks it’s the work of Celeste who Davina was warning them with with the picture she drew. Now Elijah who was Celeste’s lover is worried that Hayley might be in danger and begs Rebekah to take her to the plantation house. Bekah questions if this is to get her out of the way so she doesn’t plot against Klaus or because he truly wants Hayley to be safe.
Klaus knows that the witches are plotting against them and that they are raging war on them since the body of Papa Tunde is put in his home with the witches symbols. Father Kieran goes to the bar Cami works at and tells her that his time is limited, she gets scared and then a red headed witch tells her that she can save her uncle if she takes the knife that Papa Tunde had and stab it through Klaus’ heart.
Celeste is back and ready to ignite her powers on New Orleans. Forgot how she got back and what happened with Davina? Refresh your memory HERE!
We start off with witches in the graveyard and a flashback memory of a gathering long ago in 1919, where the witches gathered to discuss the new evils that have arrived in New Orleans. A man in a white crisp suit, warns the citizens and tells them all that he will keep them safe if they accept his family into their coven and him as their leader since he holds new darker powers.
Elijah and Klaus looking dapper in their 20’s outfits show us their dealings with the humans of the city of New Orleans and how they got the chance to rule it. Then the new wizard, the man in the crisp white suit, Papa Tunde, shows up and bargains the witches safety while the Originals try and take over. He leaves them with a parting gift which is the mayor’s head.
Back to current time, Marcel is still torn from Davina’s death and Klaus sets Theirry free. Klaus’ next plan is to rouse up the witches but Marcel is still sulking. Rebekah and Elijah walk the city and she tells him about how she is sick of being controlled by Klaus and his tricks. Elijah believes that Klaus is approaching some sense of peace and if she doesn’t support him to please not provoke him.
Marcel and Klaus duke it out but get interrupted by Diego showing them two dead vampires with witch marks all over them. Marcel warns the other vamps that that is some messed up mojo and to stay away from it. Rebekah and Thierry stumble upon witches work in an abandoned warehouse, Bekah questions why it would be there but thinks it was left out in the open on purpose. Then all of a sudden the man in the crisp white suit from the earlier flashbacks appears, Rebekah says that it is impossible. He tells her it is magic that brought him back and then reaches out to get, says some spells while choking her and then has a very sharp knife and stabs it through her forehead!
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.
