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 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!

Welcome back to “The Originals” third episode!

If you don’t remember what happened last week, recap it HERE!

This week we start off knowing that dearest Momma and Poppa are back in town and ready to kill Klaus and Elijah. We see Esther cooking up something and then Hayley finding the food prepared in their courtyard with an invitation from their mom.

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.

The Originals Recap: “Rebirth”

originals

 

“The Originals” is back and ready for season 2!

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.

The Originals Recap: “Crescent City”

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.

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 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.
