The Originals Recap: “Apres Moi, Le Deluge”

Witches are reigning in New Orleans. Need a recap of the previous episode? Click HERE!

Celeste was a powerful witch, just like Davina but had an unfortunate death and now has been coming back to New Orleans in the form of Davina’s drawings. But what is the meaning of her drawings? As Elijah, Klaus and Hayley are talking about the “all powerful”, Davina is enraged with Marcel throwing a fit, but as she continues to throw things at him she pauses and starts throwing up dirt and stones. The house shakes as well as the whole town.

Rebekah goes to check on her and tells her that she told her to go easy on causing havoc. But Davina insists that it is beyond her control. Elijah knowing that this is a witch’s problem decides to go to them, not until Hayley informs Elijah of what she has done to protect her family. So apparently as we know from last episode, Hayley went through Elijah’s journal to find out where Celeste’s remains were to tell Sophie. Elijah hurt by what Hayley has done tells her that Celeste asked him to hide her remains where no one could find her and never disturb her. Now Elijah’s promise to Celeste is broken and we know that Elijah’s promises are everything.

Sophie, who only cares about her niece, thinks that she must gather more power and must complete the Harvest. With Davina holding all the power, terrible things will happen. Wind, water and fire among other disastrous Earth shattering events will proceed and then it could be goodbye New Orleans. Sophie’s warnings are not taken lightly but Davina and her power are strong and convincing them gets a little easier. Davina’s death is said to complete the Harvest, where the other sacrificed witches will be resurrected, all the witches will regain their power and thus the Originals will lose their power over them. Not wanting to lose the empire they built, Klaus and Elijah go out to talk to certain people on their list.

Rebekah, still on her plan to win over New Orleans goes to Sophie to enlist her on her team. When it comes to it, witches will have their power and Rebekah will have her witch to take control. But could this happen? Davina must be sacrificed but Marcel is too invested in her to let that happen. While he has flashbacks of the day he saved Davina he says that he is done listening to Klaus, kills some vamps and takes Davina with him.

Elijah goes to the graveyard while Sophie tries to resurrect Celeste. Turns out that Celeste was Elijah’s one true love who we had found out about when he was delusional from Klaus’ bite. The night gets intense as time is running out. Davina is nowhere to be found, the Earth is shattering, but she is safe in Marcel’s arms who tells her that no one will hurt her. Father Kieran has no idea where they could be either, to Hayley’s surprise she finds a clan of ware wolves at the church where Klaus takes her. Surprised that Klaus would help out wolves, she discovers that they are part of Klaus’ clan. They share the same blood and so does the baby that is in her. As he leaves he gives her some advice, to just apologize to Elijah, he is a master of forgiveness. Wow, nice one Klaus, looks like there’s heart in there.

On the witches side it seems that they can’t bring Celeste back and they are losing time. As they tell Elijah that there is no other way he stops and tells him that there is one other witch who could provide the power. His mother. Elijah goes to Rebekah and Klaus to tell them the plan and then it’s time to say hello to dearest momma. Clever Rebekah knows the right person to go to to find out where Marcel could have taken Davina. Thierry knows exactly the correct spot and Rebekah seeks them out. Phase one, rain, starts to pour and the beginning of Davina’s terrible disaster begins. The Originals and Hayley along with Father Kieran unite to bring back their mother and finish the Harvest. Rebekah tells them that Marcel will bring her to them.

Davina on the other hand knows that her time has come. She takes herself to be sacrificed. As her throat gets slit, the rains stops. The girls are all laid down and the reaping begins. Sophie does the ritual but for a moment nothing happens. And nothing ever happens. The girls are not resurrected and it’s the end. Davina is dead and Marcel is torn. He has lost his friend, his family and the one person he cared about. Hayley and Elijah walk the streets of the town and she apologizes to him. Though it is hard for him to forgive her she tells him that she lives in the now. As she walks away Elijah grabs her and for an intense moment we all pray that he will grab her and give her the best kiss ever…but he doesn’t. He just gets close enough to want it, but backs away. So now Klaus and Rebekah ponder the loss of the tween witches but wonder one specific thing.

Where did all the power go? Rebekah starts to think, since four girls died, where and who has it now?

Something must be up though, a strange man appears out of the graveyard, the witch is making some strange concoction and other witches are entering New Orleans. As they all gather around, they ask what this is all for, the witch says first of all call me by my real name, “Celeste”! OMG!!

The Originals Recap: “The Casket Girls”

Welcome back to my favorite weekly recap, The Originals was all new and my-oh-my was this a great way to start things up again. Need a refresher before we dig into the new episode? Recap “Reigning Pain in New Orleans” HERE!

It seems like we’ve gone back in time and someone has been killing or should I say Rebekah has been feeding. The opening scene is about Rebekah saving and letting the girls go free and be their own women. Now in real time New Orleans is celebrating the Casket Girls in celebration of women’s liberation.

Davina has her hands full with Cami as she tries to give her memory back to her and this is a very painful experience. There is no denying the chemistry between Elijah and Hayley, as she gets ready for the festivities, Elijah helps her into her dress and suggests that they go together. With the strain between Klaus and his brother she decides that maybe it’s not a good idea and asks him again to help her with undress. Serious tingles between them!

Klaus finds himself in a predicament as he discovers that Davina is missing. He calls Marcel and now they look to find her. Davina on the other hand has successfully brought back Cami’s memories which Klaus had compelled her to forget. Rebekah asks Hayley if anything she said might have driven the little witch away, perhaps it was the discovery that Marcel might in fact had been using Davina.

Guess who’s back now, Sophie and the witch clans. Now that they know that New Orleans is running under Klaus’ control they think that they can get away with some magic and maybe even find Davina. But not too fast, Davina can still sense it and tells Cami and Josh who decide it’s time to run. The sad realization hits Cami when she finds out that her uncle Father Kieran knows everything about witches, vampires and is close friends with Marcel.

Sophie is up to her old trickster way and now has threatened Hayley to help her or else they’ll lose her magic and Hayley’s family will be in danger. Someone by the name of Celeste Dubua seems to strike a chord with little wolf mama. As the town’s festivities take place, Klaus, Marcel, Elijah and Rebekah are on the look out for Davina. Klaus gets a hold of Timothy, Davina’s crush, and calls Josh to threaten to kill Tim if she doesn’t show up.

It’s bad news when Davina and Cami get to the church. After the call from Josh she wants to go save Tim but is stopped by powerful witches who try and bring her down. Davina infuriated summons her power on them, as they rise she kills them instantly with maybe one too many victims, Cami lays on the floor unconscious. As she leaves the church she runs into Josh who warns her about Klaus and everyone else. He then tells her that if she is going to kill, she better kill them all. Rebekah shows up and tells Josh that killing Klaus is bad news and only Davina and Josh will end up dead.

Angered and infuriated Davina goes to meet Klaus, Elijah and Marcel and man-oh-man is she not happy! Her first victim is Klaus, torturing and tormenting him she turns him into his hybrid self and knocks him unconscious, second is Elijah, NOO NOT HIM! Claiming to be the noble one, Davina doesn’t take it and makes him choke on his own blood, two down. Next Marcel, he tells her that he cares for her and is there to protect her but she won’t have it. Three down. Rebekah shows up as Marcel falls and tells her, “us girls need to stick together” her mantra for this episode. Bekah’s words of wisdom about how killing is such a boyish thing to do and that is not her brother, saves Tim and tells Davina that she can trust her but she has to show her one more thing. They head down to where Marcel kept his “trusted friends” and Rebekah explains to her about how even after Klaus was in control he still kept them there. When it’s time for a drink, Tim gives Davina some water but next thing we know Tim is telling Davina that Klaus made him do it and now is dying of poisoning.

Sophie and Hayley escape to the woods and it seems as if Hayles has betrayed Elijah by taking his spell book. Hayley tells Sophie everything that she knows and begins her spell. Back at the church Father Kieran finds Cami and ask if she’s ok, Cami lashes out and tells her uncle that she knows everything.

As Davina and Tim slowly die, Rebekah calls Klaus to ask him how to cure her. He laughs and says there is no cure and she is slowly dying. Funny thing though, Marcel and Elijah have been behind his back and Marcel had recruited a witch to save Davina in case Klaus tried something funny, like he just did. So Marcel tells him that she will be ok but unfortunately Tim won’t, Klaus angered and betrayed starts to ramble but is stopped by Elijah who reminds him that Davina is Marcel’s family, and we know nobody messes with family. Poor Davina is tired and heartbroken and taken back to her room. Lord knows how angry she will be when she wakes up.

“It is said that this is a mans world and sometimes it is. For every casket girl that was saved, countless others were not. But women are more resilient than given credit for.” This is what Rebekah recites as she is feeling more and more powerful. We find out that she has plans of her own. As she strengthens Tierry up, Marcel’s old best bud, she tells him that she wants to take down Klaus and Marcel. Then there’s Elijah and Marcel who talk about how will Davina forgive them after what has happened.

While Klaus is out on the town he runs into Cami, asking him if he’s shocked to see her, she tells him that she remembers all. Not one to be afraid anymore she makes sure to tell Klaus to not hurt Davina or Josh or she will expose him and everything he has. Back at the house Elijah tries to look for clues in Davina’s drawings. After Marcel tells him that some of the drawings are when Davina has sensed some powerful evil coming. When Elijah puts the pieces together we find out that it is none other than Celeste. The episode concludes with Hayley leaving the room where Elijah has the drawings and calling Sophie, who is digging up something, which ends up having Celeste’s face on it.

What are your thoughts on this episode? Come back next Wednesday for a recap of The Originals.

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: “Sinners and Saints”

Originals

Last week’s The Originals episode was to die for! Literally, I thought someone was going to die because witches were going after Hayley, Davina’s lover boy had a great fall, Cami was going to explode, figuratively but still, from all her new info she had learned. Need a refresher? Click last week’s recap HERE!

The honorable Elijah is awake and in the presence of Davina. Which can be a good thing for The Originals.

Klaus, Rebekah and witch Sophie gather at their estate to discuss the madness and almost killing of Hayley. Sworn to protect Hayley and the baby, Rebekah stands by her word to Elijah even when Sophie tries to go out into the bayou to retrieve the remains of slayed witches. I’m getting ahead of myself though.Sinners and Saints

We find out some great news about this little thing called The Harvest which included a ritual where strength, good health and power were said to be given to the chosen witches. In reality it was just a quest to drain them of their power to have the other witches take as their own.

Cover your eyes kiddos as it seems that Marcel and Sophie had a sexual history long ago that helped Marcel learn about The Harvest. This is just a flashback so no need to get all worked up. It does give us an insight on how Marcel got Davina.

Meanwhile Elijah and Davina keep chit chatting away and we learn more about The Harvest and how Davina has to stay alive in order to prevent the ritual from completing. If Davina stays alive past the determined date, the witches will be punished and lose all their power. Davina, yearning to be a normal girl again, does not realize what this could mean.theorig

Davina tells Elijah the tale about the so-called Harvest about how no one fought or questioned the activities except Sophie. Treated like princess, Davina was enlightened and proud to be a chosen one until she realized that they were going to be killed. As the slaying began Davina was saved by the vampires, Marcel to be exact. Marcel only knew about the ritual because of Father Kieran who was informed by Sophie, more on that below!

Heartbroken that not even her own mother was fighting for her, Davina found comfort in Marcel. That night all the girls died and everyone’s power was transferred into Davina, the only survivor. Scared to die, she willingly went with Marcel, who saved her life.

New discovery! Sophie long ago went to Father Kieran to inform him about The Harvest that the witches were planning. Angered that Sophie went to him to rat them out, one of the witches put a spell on the priest’s nephew who was an alter server. The young boy, driven mad by unknown circumstances goes crazy and performs a massacre at the temple. Sound familiar? Yes, this is the exact boy who happened to have a twin sister, who happens to be back in New Orleans to find out more about her brother’s death – Cami! Whoa baby!

originals-ep-5

Well knowing that this magic is too much for Davina, Elijah offers her a deal. Safety, careful studying and learning of how to control her craft from Elijah’s mother’s spell books in exchange for him to be let go and his protection over her. Gosh darn it, doesn’t he just make you swoon?

Meanwhile, Klaus and Rebekah were fooled by Marcel when they were trying to one-up him by distracting him from going to the bayou. Marcel slips out and goes back to get Davina and move her to a new location because he’s afraid Klaus will take her. Upon departure, Davina goes into a somewhat trance and tells Marcel there is something dangerous out there and to take her back into the room she was in before fainting. Marcel does not know that Davina has let Elijah free at this time. As she is returned back to the attic we see that an established truce has been made between Davina and Elijah. He reminds her that he honors his family above all and their protection, as she reminds him that revenge against the witches is all she wants.

Hey side-note: did you know dear Cami is Father Kieran’s niece? Neither did Marcel, and now he’s forbidden to go after her. Funny how things are all connected to each other right?

Sinners and Saints

Towards the night’s end, Klaus and Marcel have a little go at it as talks of taking Davina come up, only to be interrupted by Elijah. Rebekah and Hayley have a touching moment as Bekah reminds Hayles that she is part of her family now. And bust out your handkerchief because tears of joy came out as Elijah walks in the door! Rebekah’s love for her brother is truly expressed at this moment and the sparks between Elijah and Hayley are just making me giggle. Those two are gonna be in love I just know it!

All’s come back to a great ending until, flashback into Sophie’s past where she discusses The Harvest and how to save the killed chosen witches. We find out that Davina does have to die in order for them to come back and be reborn…well isn’t this going to spice things up?

Can’t wait for what’s to come next week!

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!
