Episode Summary

EDIT
The Battle of New Orleans
AIRED:

While the alliance between the witch faction and a forgotten and incognito clan is being revealed, the Originals are too preoccupied with Marcel's rebellion, which is to give to the witches the distraction they need to capture and prepare the sacrifice their ancestors demand. In the meantime, Klaus will regret the donation he made to Genevieve in the most horrific way and Davina will cross the desperate line to save Josh's life.

    Action packed episode that had all the excitement of a finale! I've no idea how they're going to top this for the real finale.

    The situation in the French quarter at the moment seems a lot like a gang warfare to me. Rival gangs who fight for leadership, kill a lot of people in the process and shift allegiances all the time.

    I didn't expect to feel sorry for Klaus, but his helplessness when he was drained of his power at a time when Haley needs him most, was quite heartbreaking.

    He isn't as good a strategist as he thinks he is, as all of his plans just fell apart and bit him in the ass.

    And why do they always have to rip pages out of the grimoire, wouldn't the spell work if they just copy it or make a photo of the page?

    I am still not convinced about the bayou werewolves. I just don't have a feeling that I know them at all. The few minutes with the surprising new werewolves were much better than all the scenes with the bayou werewolves before.

    I hope they are setting Cami up for a bigger role in the next season with her discovery of her uncle's secret room. She seemed quite peripheral in this season and didn't quite fulfill her potential.

    It seems that the scenes with Davina and Michael are more of a set up for the next season ( of course Davina will be misguided enough to bring him back from the dead). It would help the show if all the vampire infighting would stop and we would get an external enemy like Michael, because the show sometimes feels like a yo yo with people going back and forth with their allies all the time.moreless

  • Klaus will rise

    this was by far an epic episode, thank goodness it wasn't the finale. New Orleans has really gotten beyond interesting, can't wait for Michael to return though.
