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: “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 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 Vampire Diaries Recap: “Monster’s Ball”

Thevampirediaries

And we’re back! Last week’s The Vampire Diaries left us crying and gasping as friends reunited for Bonnie’s funeral and hottie Jesse is now becoming a vampire!

For the full recap of last week’s episode click HERE.

Halloween editions are always my favorite, though TVD is always spooky themed for me. This week The Monster’s Ball is upon college life and it’s dress up time for the crew.

We start off with Dr. Maxfield observing new vamp Jesse. Elena writes her sorrows as she deals with Bonnie’s death, Tyler and Caroline are back together and very much in love, or so we think.

Curious Elena knows there is more behind Dr. M and the death of her former roomie Megan. When she meets a random student at Megan’s memorial post she knows he is up to something.

thevamps

It’s kind of cute how Bonnie is still around and hanging with Jeremy. While they are with Damon they scheme for a plan to work with Silas. Bonnie tells Jeremy that this is not a good idea but since no one else can hear her Jeremy says it’s a go! Poor Bonnie is scared about the consequences of abusing magic. So here’s the thing, Silas wants to die, if he takes the cure, which is Katherine, he becomes a witch. If he dies as a witch he stays alive on the other side so he’s not truly dead. That’s where the problem arrives.

A mystical anchor that Silas wants to break down so that he can actually die is what is stopping him but Qetsiyah wants to keep it up and protect it so he won’t be able to die. Damon chitchatting with Silas is on the verge of setting a game plan until Silas wants Stefan dead to pursue his interest.

At the Ball, everyone is all dressed up and having a semi-grand time as Elena is on the hunt for finding out who Megan’s friend is who is interested in her death.  Damon offers up Stefan to Silas, Qetsiyah arrives and is interested in Stefan but Damon swoops him away. Once in the other room Damon snaps Stefan’s neck so that Silas temporarily has his mind reading powers so that he can fool Qetsiyah into giving him answers about the anchor.

Dr. Maxfield arrives to the Ball, Elena asks for a dance and asks why he lied on the death certificate. We find out that Doctor himself knows that a vampire ripped her throat out and then warms Elena to leave her school and never come back. Sketchy professor right? But one thing we know is that he cares for Aaron, who happens to be the guy that was questioning Megan’s death. Dr. Maxfield is Aaron’s legal guardian.

As we go back to Silas pretending to be Stefan, the real Stefan wakes up and snaps Damon’s neck, runs over to Qetsiyah and tells her that Silas is the one that she’s been talking to. Qetsiyah not one to easily forgive, literally crushes Silas’s heart so he can rot from the inside out.

Meanwhile we discover that Katherine has a daughter and it’s none other than Nadia, the traveler. While Nadie has been keeping her for her own reason’s we find out the story of how Nadie was left behind.

Sad news comes as Tyler says goodbye once more to Caroline. Tyler who’s on a quest to seek revenge against Klaus tells Caroline that he can’t be with her while he wants to hurt Klaus as much as he hurt him and his family. Caroline angered by his attitude gives him an ultimatum, going after Klaus and never being with her again, or staying and being happily together. As Tyler takes a step, we know it’s over.

We end this marvelous episode at the Salvatore estate where Damon and Elena have dried up Silas. Katherine joins the gang and gets thrilled as she thinks that she has more time to spare now that Silas can’t get her. Wrong move K, Damon takes her and feeds her to Silas as she screams that she doesn’t want to die. Draining her of her blood, Katherine is left for dead on the floor…or so we think!

Next week Silas is up and running and ready to die!
