  • Another brilliant episode

    9.0
    Another brilliant episode, let down because Klaus, being very angry, would have killed the witch as soon as he was released without a second thought,
  • A Devastating Truth

    Wow this was another knockout episode, I loved seeing more flashbacks and how much meaning they had for the characters in the present!



    Dang just when I thought I knew how truly bad the Original Clan was we get this episode and that damning revelation about Rebekah! It was so awesome!



    I feel pretty bad for everyone especially Rebekah, I mean at the end of the day she just wants to be happy but Klaus doesn't seem to want her to be, really tragic!



    I loved Elijah's deductive work in this episode that was pretty great too!



    I cannot wait to see next week's episode it looks pretty amazing, the aftermath of this secret being revealed and it's repercussions seem like we will be seeing them for a long time!



    Bring on next week!moreless

    What an explosive episode, Rebekah what did you do, although Marcel was also involved, but this was absolute betrayal against Klaus. Not to mention using Genevieve to cast the spell to bring Mikael their father to New Orleans only to destroy Klaus and you Marcel also being involved is just as worse. As much as i love Rebekah, i really felt bad for Genevieve and Clara and how Rebekah wanted Genevieve to undo the spell, which you can't, so Rebekah kills Genevieve and Clara was just collateral damage. So with Genevieve releasing Klaus (with only one thing on his mind) getting even with Rebekah, as for what Celeste said to Rebekah didn't actually turn out that way, Elijah saves Rebekah and tells Marcel and Rebekah to run and plunges the dagger into Klaus. The only thing i didn't understand is why didn't Celeste realize that Hayley was sneaking up behind her and since when did Hayley become so tough. Apart from that i was left wanting more. Fantastic Episode. Thumbs Up.moreless
  • YEEEE-HAAAWW!

    Only about 16 hours till the next ep screens by my reckoning - and what a truly awesome show it has so rapidly become! In fact most of the time The Originals is even better than TVD these days - and it just gets more exciting pretty much every week! Without question one of the highlights of my week, and I find it quite exasperating when I have to wait weeks btwn episodes!



    And to complement the inspired plots and cunning arcs, we are privileged to have such a laudable array of superb characters too: The stoic & noble Elijah; the defiant & fearless Cami; tough but touching Hayley; the sweet, courageous club-kid Josh; and even our depraved & psychopathic antihero Klaus can still *sometimes* do what's right and make us smile - and of course, who doesn't just adore Rebekah - truly the Heart of this show?!



    Bra-VO! says this cowboy! Bring on the next slice of this gritty, grown-up drama's storm of Neo-vampire exploits, served as always with a side of magick, and a dollop of dark humour for dippin'! <)8-'Dmoreless
