The Originals Recap: “Dance Back From The Grave”

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!

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: “Bloodletting”

Originals

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.

20131113-135411.jpg

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.

20131113-135415.jpg

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!

theorig

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?

The Originals Recap: “Fruit of The Poisoned Tree”

Originals

Elijah is back!

Who could forget last week’s episode full of Davina, Elijah and crazy witches going after Hayley! To freshen up on the previous episode click HERE.

theoriginals

Now the siblings are back together and the little growing family is doing well. Hayley and Elijah are just to die for and their chemistry is off the charts.

Craziness arises when Sophie gets bewitched by strange intruders. But of course it’s none other than Agnes who injects Sophie with some strange substance and thus the side effects of The Needle of Sorrows will kill the unborn child.

Now that Elijah is in charge, his first move is to remove the link between Sophie and Hayley. He goes to Davina, who he had offered to help teach her how to control her powers, with a unchaining spell and the knot that was linking the two women. Her challenge, to undo the knot and then Elijah will be back with another spell of her choosing.

theorig

Cami is back in this episode and she goes visit her uncle, Father Kieran. Cami is feeling lost and uneasy, she is worried about how she now has no feelings for her dead brother’s actions and the words Murderer on his grave. Father Kieran says maybe this is for the best.

Marcel, confused and wondering if there is anyone in this old town that he can trust, goes and sets his only confidant Thierry free who was stoned up to rot for breaking his number one rule. As conversation starts to flow between the two, it turns out that Thierry might have a better grasp of what Klaus is trying to do and states that he might have some vamps compelled for his use.

Klaus on the hunt for Agnes, goes to Father Kieran to find out where she is. To give him a boost to help him out, Klaus tells Father Kieran that Agnes was the witch that cursed his nephew Sean to go mad. Of course this adds fuel to the Father’s fire and lo and behold we have Agnes in the hands of Klaus.

As Hayley starts feeling the side effects of the Needle, Sophie, Rebekah and Elijah do their best to try and slow down the symptoms with a remedy Sophie conjured. As things start to get worse for Hayley, Davina successfully undoes the rope that was linking Sophie and Hayley and the baby is safe and sound. Sophie, aware that now she has no hold on The Originals pleads to Elijah to not have Klaus kills Agnes. Elijah gives her his word and we know that Elijah’s word is worth gold.

Rebekah wanting to be free from all the troubles that her brothers always run into tells Elijah that she is leaving. An emotional stop as Elijah tells her to stay but reminds her she is already free. As she embarks on her goodbyes she makes a stop at Marcel’s to give her farewell. Funny how farewells turn into hot vampire sex and some hope of happiness for Rebekah. Wrong move though for Rebekah, as she hands Marcel an apple from the plantation they are staying at, she asks him to leave with her. Reluctant to leave his empire, the two get in a tiff. As she walks away Marcel puts two and two together and realizes what he’s been wanting to find out. Where The Originals are staying.

Can you say, Elijah is a bad ass! Showing us that there is still some evil in his blood he does keep his word of not having Klaus kill Agnes, but he never said anything about him doing the deed. With a snap of a neck, Agnes is dead by the hands of Elijah as he coolly walks away saying, “No one hurts my family, no one. ”

Things turn ugly when Marcel spots vampire Josh at The Originals’ home and knocks on the door to find Hayley. As Klaus goes to Cami to tell her the truth about her brother she takes it the wrong way and pretty much tells Klaus that he will pay for messing with her. As he heads out he runs into Marcel who tells him that he tried and stop by his home and not the Palace Royale.

Fruit of the Poisoned Tree

As Elijah returns back home, Hayley is no where to be found, he gives Rebekah a call to see if she is with her. Just then Klaus walks in and informs Elijah that Marcel has been there.

Goodness gracious where does it end!? Now that Hayley is in Marcel’s possession things will definitely get intense next week!

How did you survive this week’s episode? Can’t get enough Originals?

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.

originalsdavina

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!
