‘The Originals’ Review: A Great Battle is Approaching

Aiden would have been happy that his best friend and boyfriend pushed him off to the afterlife.

So is Dahlia not the evil witch that Freya painted her to be and how she’s been perceived so far? She wants to protect Hope and help her hone her craft, but without Hayley. It seems Klaus has taken after his aunt. He’ll easily sacrifice Hayley for his daughter.

Maybe if she approached them with the truth to begin with and didn’t want to tear Hope away from her mother, they could have worked all of this out, but now a big battle appears to be on the horizon.

Hayley tried to get away from the Mikaelsons. She said goodbye to Elijah and Rebekah agreed that was the right thing to do, but she’ll be needing Rebekah and Elijah on her side very soon.

This was a twist I didn’t see coming and I like it. Dahlia is more interesting and devious than we thought. Before she was just a powerful villain. Ester broke her heart when she chose Mikael over her, one of the very men that pillaged their village. Ester also turned her back on magic, that is until she needed her sister to help her have kids.

Is there no way that Hope could hone her skills without Dahlia? She is in a city with a lot of powerful witches. So maybe I’m a little biased because I don’t want Hayley to be killed. She’s become such a strong character and she’s becoming a great Queen to her pack.

Her advice came in one of the unlikeliest of places, Marcel. She hasn’t always been on the friendliest terms with Marcel. He told her that she can’t be their Queen and a friend. If she’s willing to let her pack die for her, she has to live with it. Hayley’s been on her own for so long, she’s never had to lead and make those hard decisions.

Her first major decision may not have been perceived well at first by the pack. She invited Josh to Aiden’s funeral. It was great that Josh was able to be there and I was hoping from the beginning of the episode that he would be there. It was very fitting that Jackson and and Josh pushed him off into the water. It was a perfect funeral for Aiden.

Things may be getting very interesting for Davina. Vincent suggests she become the leader of the coven. If she does she’ll have access to the power she’ll need to bring Kol back.

I’m not sure how Davina would be as a leader. Her people are Josh and Marcel and she’s close with Rebekah. Not exactly the people the coven would like her to be close to. I think she’s a great young witch and has a lot of potential, but maybe not ready to take over the coven.

Next week Klaus goes after Hayley. Take a look at the promo:
