First things first: Thomas Haden Church is the best part of the episode. His delivery, his tone and just the way he’s sarcastic without over doing it, is what makes him my favorite on the show.

Once at the party, Diane won’t stop complaining about her husband Nick, played by Tracy Letts, and pretty soon find each other fighting in their bedroom while the guests are outside. Things take a turn for the worse when she takes out a gun and points it at him.

originals

It’s “The Originals” recap time!

Forgot what happened last week in “”Live and Let Die”? No worries, recap episode 4 HERE. 

We start the episode with a bloody Elijah chasing…Elena?

He wakes up from being chained and Esther is right there with him telling him that she is not in his head, that he was dreaming. She asks who he was dreaming about and chasing? Elijah is very feisty and Esther tells him that she wants him to become a witch and take the body of a new being. He tells her to let him go and he gets vicious. She reminds him that he gets into his savage stage and rips up every little “butterfly” love that he has because he is a beast and she brings up him first love. We go back in time and we see a young Elijah and a doppleganger Elena who only had eyes for one person, Elijah. So now we see this doppleganger talking to Elijah and see that she is attracted to him and she says, “I choose you Elijah” and they share their first kiss.

Red Door

Well, well, well…Now back to present time and Esther tells him that he always rips his butterflies apart and he says it happened when Esther drained his first love of her blood.

“The Vampire Diaries” recap: “The World Has Turned and Left Me Here”

The Vampire Diaries

Welcome, welcome VD Lovers!

Let chit chat about “The Vampire Diares” episode 5 “The World Has Turned and Left Me Here.”

If you haven’t caught up from last week or don’t remember all that happened, recap last episode, “Black Hole Sun,” HERE.

From what we can shortly recap is that Ivy is now a vampire and Stefan wakes up because his phone is ringing and gets a call from the coach who says that he still has Enzo in his possession and is torturing him. Once he hangs up he hears Ivy in the kitchen and sees her with blood in her mouth and she starts to tell him that she killed his boss. She is a sassy little one and says that she can’t control her emotions and even references “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” 😉 She gets all rallied up and goes after Stefan but he snaps her neck.

We then arrive at Caroline’s dorm with Stefan and Ivy in a trunk. He is asking her to take care of Ivy in the meantime and of course Caroline gives in. Next we see Alarec is teaching and we find out that it is Homecoming, does this mean another party? But he goes on and tells a tale of Homecoming and that the morale of the story is to never fall in love with your brother’s girl and looks at Elena who is in his class and asks if he wants to have her compulsion removed and she says no. After class Elena asks Liam to the Corn Maze and it’s a date!

The Originals recap: “Live and Let Die”

originals

Today we’re recapping the 4th episode of “The Originals!”

To catch up on all the excitement, recap last week’s episode, HERE!

From last week we know that Esther is not in Lenore’s body and ready to destroy Klaus and Elijah.

We start off this week’s episode at Marcel’s place and his clan of vampires when all of a sudden they get intruders and a warning from the werewolves (under the control of witches) to leave town or else they will not hold back.

Welcome to the “City of Death,” as Camil names it.

We see her with Finn but I’m pretty sure that she has NO idea who he really is. From what we gather he’s her therapist and he is trying to get her to tell him everything she knows, especially about the guys that she has had in her life. So she starts talking about Klaus without actually mentioning him and Finn asks what happened and she says, “Not everyone wants to be saved.”

We see the real tension between Elijah and Hayley and it is definitely not the same between them. Camil is seen on the phone with Davina and D tells her that she is ok and hangs up with her. Cami then bumps into Klaus who has already figured out where Davina is just from overhearing the call with Camil.

Next we see Esther with Kol, they are trying to locate Davina and are unsuccessful. Finn comes in and Esther tells them that they need to find Davina and the white oak stake. We go back to Davina with Mikael who tells her that they should not hide and that her weakness will be her fear.

Marcel and his clan are worried about having to leave and getting killed by the werewolves. Then we see Elijah zoom in and snap a couple of the vamps necks as he says, “Lesson 1, always be on your guard.”

Live and Let Die

 

Finn, Oliver and a werewolf are in the cemetery and it seems like Finn has a plan to attack the vampires that involves a bunch of kids, killing and activating their curse. Back with Davina and Mikael, he is teaching her be strong, just what Davina wanted. He throws a stick at her and says, “Lesson 1, always be on your guard” just like Elijah had just said. They start to do some “training” but she twists her ankle and he tells her to get up. She is clearly hurt but again he tells her to get up and she does.

Camil and Klaus are at a bar, against Klaus’ wishes he wants to hurry over to Davins’s but Camil wanted to get a drink and not be rushed to the “killing” that she expects to happen between him and Mikael. We switch to Davina and see that her ankle is swollen and she is in pain. She calls Kol, even though she doesn’t know who he truly is, and tells him that she will send him the address where she is at and a list of things that she can maybe bring her…oh no!

The Vampire Diaries recap: “Welcome To Paradise”

The Vampire Diaries

Welcome to episode 3 of the new season of “The Vampire Diaries.”

Need to recap on episode prior to this, click HERE.

Now we start off with Stefan having anger issues, asking his boss for time off and telling him he’s leaving town while showing him his dead girlfriend, Ivy, in the back of his trunk. So honest, but then again he’s being compelled.

Elena is now Damon-free and with no thoughts of what happened between them, Jeremy is still struggling dealing with Bonnie’s death and it seems like there is a big party going down tonight and everyone is inviting everyone.

Stefan appears back at Elena’s school, she is happy to see him so they go and catch up. He tells her she seems different and happier and they talk about Ivy and the “dinner part from hell.”

We flash over to the other world where Bonnie and Damon are at the grocery store and then while they are there they hear the merry go round outside turn on, thus Bonnie say that it is a sign of hope. As they talk about hope and getting back to the real world all of a sudden they see cars, one of them being Damon’s. Things are starting to get strange  because all of a sudden someone swooshes by. That “someone” ends up being a tarp but then the merry go round starts playing again.

EveryMothersSonSneak2-feature

We go back in time to see little Elijah and Flynn and their mom asking where Klaus is. She goes to the woods and finds him all alone and his mom tells him to not be afraid, that she will be with him, always and forever. We go back to present time and Klaus is not happy to see his mother knowing that they will have to prepare for the worst. Elijah heads over to Marcel’s and tells him that the new vamp is not his burden, he turned the new vamp, Marcel should train her. All Elijah wants is to find a witch with which Marcel asks his new vamp to take Elijah to meet Lenore, the witch that can possibly help him.

Oliver meets up with another witch to get his ring back and “Cassie,” the witch, tells him that the ring comes with a price. Oliver informs Hayley about the new witch that is helping Esther, who then tells Klaus about it and he tells proceeds to tell Hayles the story of how his little brother died and how his mother went crazy.

Marcel-Elijah-and-Lenore-4

Back with Elijah, Marcel’s new vamp  proceeds to take Elijah to Lenore who tells the witch that he wants to find out how he can find out which body a certain witch will jump into next. But as he gets his deal and leaves, the witch that Oliver was with arrives to see Lenore, and oh no…we probably know what happens.

The Originals Recap: “Alive and Kicking”

originals

We’re back for episode 2 of “The Originals!”

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.

AliveKicking22a

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.
