Just in time to validate its full-season pickup, The Originals is officially GOOD now.
Katherine & Caroline teamed up! Other stuff happened too, which was fine. But also Katherine & Caroline teamed up!
This show is 100 percent perfect.
It's time to forget what we expected this show to be and simply embrace what it actually IS. In that spirit, here are the ten best things that happened this week!
Hearts, necks, homes, and brains: ALL were broken this week!
It was only a matter of time before zombies made an official appearance on American Horror Story! But even without them "Fearful Pranks Ensue" would've been terrific.
This week's episode saw a return to the exposition-heavy campfire tale format. But it mostly worked this time! Mostly.
Stefan forgot everything! Bonnie came out of the closet! Jeremy did push-ups! "For Whom the Bell Tolls" was also a good episode for anybody nostalgic for 2009.
Incest! Bestiality! Fish-eye lenses! This was one of the most deranged episodes of American Horror Story to date.
Primordial witches! Ancient Greece! Doppelganger madness! "Original Sin" was very informative.
"Boy Parts" was an hour of straight-up JOY.
Whoops, The Originals is starting to make me mad.
Shocking news: Elena attended a class! Also Silas harmed at least THREE hunks and Katherine caught a cold! Plus: A sexy teacher finally.
Ryan Murphy's most brilliant nightmare machine revved up again this week and it was even more gloriously insane than we'd hoped.
