‘The Originals’ Season 3 Promo is Here!

The Originals season three promo is here and appears to be all about Klaus.

Klaus always says he doesn’t want to be alone, but he loves acting alone and he loves to be feared. He may or may not be feared in season three, but he sure wants people to fear him.

Everyone seems to be alone. The only one that seems to be talking to anyone is Cami. And as we know from Comic-Con, Cami is now Klaus’ therapist. How many years of therapy will it take Klaus to over come a 1,000 years of emotional scars?

We do get to see a little glimpse of Elijah and he’s feeling pretty indestructible, by saying they can’t be killed.

Hayley appears in two clips, I wonder how long till the cures will be lifted from her?

Freya is only seen at the very end of the promo, saying they’ll all fall. This really disappoints me. She’s supposed to be a series regular this season, so I’m expecting to see a lot more of her.

This promo doesn’t really tell us much of what’s going on. Just that there’s a lot of family drama going on, but when isn’t there with the Original family?

There is a brief mention of a war brewing between the sire lines, but we don’t really get to see too much of that. We do get to see a little clip of Hayley fighting and guns pointed at Elijah, but unless it’s a special kind of gun, it’s not going to do much to him.

What actually worries me is the blood coming from Davina’s eyes. Is she still trying to bring Kol back? We know she wasn’t going to give up. She’s got more power now being the Regent, but can she handle that power?

Even with the promo telling us very little, I’m still very excited for this season. We know a lot of what’s coming from Comic-Con, so the promo gives you a little visual for that.

My guess is that they don’t want to give too much away, or maybe that’s just my hope. We know there will be a lot of flashbacks and this promo doesn’t show any of that. So there’s a lot to look forward to and this promo is really just a tease.

The Originals will return Thursday, Oct. 8 at 9/8c pm on The CW.

‘The Originals’ Comic-Con: Everything You Need to Know About Season 3

fdc762638e98a037b63ee3352422c210Executive producer Julie Plec was nice enough to give fans of The Originals at Comic-Con a little taste of what’s to come in season three. She brought a video that recapped the first two seasons and introduced three new villains at the end.

We were supposed to meet these villains at the end of season two, but Julie said when they saw the season finale they thought it was better to end on Klaus’s emotional moment. “Sort of just t-ing up there were new enemies to come.”

Executive producer Michael Narducci said they’ve discussed how the Mikaelsons have been around for thousands of years and have probably sired vampires along the way. We know that when an original vampire dies, their sire line dies with them. Season three will be about what those vampire’s perspectives are about the continued existence of the Mikaelson family.

When we left the Mikaelsons in season two, they had just gotten rid of their parents and aunt. “Now they get to experience what it’s like to be so called parents themselves of the first line of sired vampires. So the children are coming to town with an ax to grind,” Julie said.

Not only are there new enemies coming, Klaus and Elijah are very estranged at the moment, but they still have to work together to take care of little Hope.

Joseph Morgan (Klaus Mikaelson) thinks that when The Originals returns that Klaus will be a bad father.

“I think he kind of knows he’s messing it up, but he’s trying at least. You gotta give him that. Even if he’s warping the mind of his young daughter before she’s uttered even a syllable,” Joseph said.

While Klaus and Elijah will try to take care of Hope despite their differences, Freya will also be there to help take care of the powerful baby.

Riley Voelkel was a new addition to the cast this season and Michael said, “Riley owned it.”

“She felt to me like a Mikaelson right form the beginning. Very strong, very intense and 25% bat s–t insane and a very, very great addition to the family,” Michael added.

Julie said Riley just fit right into the cast and they really wished she could of come with them, but she was at home in Atlanta with her mom.

There has been a lot of new additions over the first two seasons, but not all of them have stuck around.

“A typical day we’re sitting there thinking about how much we love our actors and our cast is phenomenal. We’re just kind of chilling out and then the angel of death walks in and says, ‘I feel like killing off so and so’ and then we figure that out,” Michael said, as he looked at Julie.

“They have a big roulette wheel with all of our names on,” Joseph said.

“I do. I do,” Julie joked.

Julie said the best death scenes are the ones they don’t want to do. The ones that hurt.

Julie was originally determined not to kill off Aunt Jenna from The Vampire Diaries, but then someone presented Jenna’s death in a way that was so terrible, she loved it.

There are other times when an actor wants to leave.

“Just from a logistical point of view, Daniel Sharman, who was so wonderful as Kol,” Julie started to say and the crowd screamed.

Daniel got a new job, so they had to write him off. Julie did say we will see Kol again next season, this time as Nathaniel Buzolic. We’ll even see him right away in flashbacks.

Davina isn’t going to stop trying to get her boyfriend back.

Danielle Campbell (Davina Claire) thinks Davina and Kol had a special connection, which is what made them able to do so much magic together. He’s the first person who’s understood her and is very important to her.

Davina has changed a lot in only two seasons.

“I think as an actor, I love it. It’s what you really want. I’ve gotten to experience so many different arcs and I’ve really gotten to grow with the character,” Danielle said.

Cami has gone through a lot of changes since The Originals started too. She came back to New Orleans not know anything about the supernatural world and now she’s the last remaining legacy of her family. And she has a very complicated relationship with Klaus.

Leah Pipes (Camille O’Connell) said Cami saw her twin brother plunge into darkness and she sees that darkness in herself. She also may see some of that darkness in Klaus that she’s repressing.

“I think there is an untapped darkness in Cami that we potentially will be seeing some of,” Leah said.

“I think that at the same time Klaus sees that darkness in her and sees someone highly intelligent who’s vulnerable and human and fragile. And yet sees him with sympathetic eyes and looks at him not as a monster, but as a complex soul. That’s something that he doesn’t necessarily get all the time and doesn’t necessarily think he deserves completely. So there’s some attraction there,” Michael said. 

“She sees the good him,” Leah added.

“Yeah, perhaps,” Michael replied with a hint of a laugh.

“There’s silence in the audience. No one liked that,” Leah said and the panel laughed.

There’s a lot of powerful ladies on The Originals and we should hopefully see some great scenes with all of them together in the coming season.

“There’s a good faction of writers in our writers room who really believe that the female relationships and friendships are as strong and as important to the show as the supernatural stuff and as the bromance and the romance. They fight really hard to find ways to put characters together. We figure out ways to develop those bonds,” Julie said.

The big romance on the show is Hayley and Elijah of course.

“He’s going to be holding a lot more coats out in the wilderness for her,” Daniel Gillies (Elijah Mikaelson) said.

“The coats are going to become exponentially smaller and smaller. It’s just going to be a tiny jacked. Just going to be a thong. Not even. A false mustache. He’s kinky,” Daniel joked.

Daniel got serious and said that Elijah has “monumental patients and I think he’ll just wait it out,” he said.

He said Elijah will always be there for Hayley when she needs him.

Joseph interjected: “Though his patients with Klaus has run out.”

“Well that’s a thousand years of it. He’s only had like what, two years,” Daniel replied.

“I think he’s going to remain devoted to her through whatever. And to the child,” Daniel added.

When Charles Michael Davis (Marcel Gerard) was asked about his character’s failed relationships he replied: “Wait, we’re talking about my personal life now?”

He hopes that Rebekah will come back in any body.

“You say that now and then she shows up, ‘Hello Marcel. I’m finally back in my new body. 86 years old. Give us a kiss, you devil you,” Joseph said in a fake old lady voice.

Charles joked and said he liked were this was going and Joseph said he would be playing the part “in a sort of Monty Pythonesque” way.

All fans constantly want to know when the next crossover will be. Michael isn’t such a fan of crossovers. He said he’s a producer and writer on The Originals, so he has his own characters to focus on. Then he waits “for my fearless leader to tell me, actually Mike, I have The Vampire Dairies and The Originals and we’re going to do a crossover with both of them and we’re going to bring in the people from Containment too, because I am God,” Michael said.

“And there you have it,” Julie concluded.


 

The cast were able to make a wish for their characters:

Leah Pipes:

I’m a human, so I just want to stay alive.

Phoebe Tonkin

I think my wish for Hayley would be that Hope can live a normal happy existence. I think that’s what she would want the most.

Daniel Gillies

I think for Elijah I would want, other than his girlfriends not being incinerated. (“Oh, come on,” Joseph said.) I’m saying I’m not letting that go easily. I’m actually wishing for something dark. Sort of would wish for a great division between the brothers before conciliation. (“So that’s how it’s going to be?” Joseph said.)

Joseph Morgan

I wish everyone would just do what Klaus says because he’s always right. He knows what he’s doing. It’s for the greater good. Come on, get on board with his plans and everything will be alright in the end. Not everyone will be alright in the end, but everything will be alright in the end. (Crowd laughs.)

Julie Plec

I just destroy wishes.

Charles Michael Davis

I wish Marcel would crossover. (“Whoa,” Julie said.)

Danielle Campbell

Davina’s a witch and I think it would be really cool if she could fly. So whether it’s a broomstick or something else. I still think it would be really cool.

Yusaf Gatewood

Mine’s pretty selfish. I hate shaving, so I wish we could work something out so Vincent can grow a huge beard. (“No, we can’t” Julie answered.)

‘The Originals’ Review: Ashes to Ashes, the Battle is Won

The Mikaelson family.

The Mikaelson family.

It was a Mikaelson family reunion on the season finale. Ester came back to destroy her sister and Rebekah was back in her body again.

Klaus is a great villain because he has the best devious plans. He manipulated every piece of the puzzle for the victory. But this is also what leaves him all alone. It’s exciting to see his plans unfold though, and this was a very exciting plan with multiple parts. There will be a lot of consequences from this plan.

I love Davina, but this betrayal may put her on the path of evil. Vincent said she would have to be very careful or she would be more evil than them all. Maybe Vincent will be sticking around now that he’s seen his error in judgment. Cami called him out on leaving Davina without a teacher. This sets up an interesting storyline for season three.

Cami has also finally admitted she has feelings for Klaus. Whoever knew someone could actually love Klaus after all he’s done.

Elijah is done with Klaus. It was just one too many betrayals. But Hayley has asked that he be there for Hope. Elijah will have to put aside his feelings and be there for Hope.

I can’t believe that Hayley is cursed. Sometimes I really hate Klaus, especially when he just thinks of the mother of his child as collateral damage. Hope needs her mother.

Rebekah is on her own journey. Freya gave her the opportunity to take back the witch body and choose her own path. Rebekah can’t choose, but she will keep her promise to Kol.

The season finale was definitely a family affair. Dahlia was reunited with the sister that betrayed her. It all started with always and forever and it ended that way too.

‘The Originals’: Review: Klaus is Playing with Fire and Ice

Hayley wanted to teach her daughter, you don't leave anyone behind. So what exactly is Klaus teaching her?

Hayley wanted to teach her daughter, you don’t leave anyone behind. So what exactly is Klaus teaching her?

Klaus always has the best plans. This one included making his siblings think he was going against them. And even cursing Hayley’s pack to be wolves always. It was a very devious plan, but what is the final part? How will they kill Dahlia?

From the beginning it looked like Klaus was up to his old tricks. He compelled Marcel to find out their plan. He killed Elijah’s new love interest. He even looked like he killed Cami. Klaus was back to his monster self, but not so fast.

It took the whole episode, but in the end Cami let us in on a little secret, it was all part of his diabolical plan. Maybe daggering him was a bad idea. But can you blame his siblings? Half the time Klaus seems more of a danger to himself and everyone around him than useful.

This was definitely an epic episode. One that felt more like a season finale than a normal episode. They were so, so close to killing Dahlia, that is, if it was even going to work. Dahlia claim’s Freya’s blood would never have worked. And poor Freya, she’s gone to sleep early. But I like Freya. I want to see more of her. She’s just as diabolical as Klaus. She’s awesome. Mikael was the only thing that scared Klaus and Dahlia is the only thing that scares Freya. They are so much alike.

I guess you should never think things are as they appear when Klaus is behind the plan. The biggest question, other than how they kill Dahlia, is will Rebekah wake up in her own body or is she dead for good? How can they kill her off for good? She has to come back!

This was also a very good episode for Davina. She convinced the coven to make her their regent. Davina is going to have more power than ever. She’s sure to be powerful enough to bring Kol back, but will she take down Klaus in the process? Will the witches me an enemy yet again to Klaus? And where will this leave Marcel and Davina’s relationship? Or Josh and Davina’s relationship?

Once question that is answered in the promo: Claire Holt will be making an appearance! But Elijah can’t forgive Klaus and they still have to defeat Dahlia. Take a look at the promo for the season finale:

‘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.

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:

‘The Originals’: Dahlia Breaks the Levee

Klaus shouldn't have took credit for killing Aiden, it was his undoing.

Klaus shouldn’t have took credit for killing Aiden, it was his undoing.

Klaus spent the whole episode scheming and strategizing and now he won’t even be there to see his plan through. All because he wouldn’t trust a single person in helping him protect Hope. He took credit for a murder he didn’t even commit, thinking it would make the wolves fear him. Instead he’s more isolated than ever. He played right into Dahlia’s plan and Freya didn’t have to do much to tear her siblings part. Klaus did that for her.

Right from the start Klaus was creating a plan by himself. He hid the ashes from everyone and wouldn’t even let Elijah know where they were.

Josephine came with a message for them, or Dahlia using Josephine’s body did. She just wants what is her’s and she wanted it nightfall the next day. She said there’s “no reason we can’t be civil about this” and Klaus knocked off her head, that was only staying on because of a choker.

Hayley doesn’t want to stay put but she doesn’t want to leave either because Dahlia can track Hope. So what if they stopped her form using magic? Hayley ponders. Aiden jumps in, he has an idea and he wants to make it up to them for screwing up before. Jackson doesn’t know he screwed up yet.

Rebekah goes to see Freya and gives her her condolences. She tells her she didn’t know the man Freya loved. All Rebekah knew was a man with a terrible temper and awful cruelty. Freya gives Rebekah a choice, Klaus or her.

Elijah walks in on Klaus painting and knows he’s strategizing. Elijah tells him he can’t do this alone, but Klaus says Elijah’s judgement is not what it was since Ester got inside his head and he’s not what he was.

No! Not Aiden!

No! Not Aiden!

Aiden sneaks inside the Mikaelson house to steal the magic binding chains, but he’s caught by Klaus. Aiden tells him he’s there for Hope’s bunny and to tell him Hayley and Hope are safe. Klaus acts like he believes him at first, but gives him a warning.

Aiden and Josh ask if Davina can transfer the magic from the chains to something smaller, so Hayley, Jackson and Hope can get out of town.

While Davina is working on the spell, Dahlia has found Hope. She can’t get in, but she magically grows dahlia’s right outside the door. She wants to meet the child face to face. The problem with Freya was she took her too late, so she’s come for Hope sooner. She’ll have no memory of her family and will be better off.

Rebekah is still trying to decide what sibling to choose. Marcel knows Klaus will have a plan.

Elijah refuses to choose a side. He goes to see Freya to bring her Mikael’s old knife for the marker she is making. He urges her to stay and defeat Dahlia together. Freya agrees, but wants Elijah to make sure Klaus won’t be their undoing.

Aiden is ready to run away too. He wants Josh to go with him and he tells Josh he loves him. Josh agrees, but first Aiden must tell Jackson the truth.

Aiden give’s Jackson the magic binding bracelet and tells him he’s been spying for Klaus. Jackson punches Aiden, but ultimately forgives him. Jackson says goodbye, but that he’ll always be apart of the pack.

Aiden is off to meet with Josh. He buys him nice roses, but Dahlia is there to greet him. She calls Aiden a tipping point to put Mikaelson against Mikaelson. She rips out his heart and leaves him there in the alley.

Davina is so happy that Josh is getting away and getting his happily ever after. But then they find Aiden lying in the alley. Josh tries to give Aiden his blood, but it’s too late.

Jackson brings Aiden’s body into the safe house blaming Klaus for the murder. Klaus looks absolutely shocked, but takes the credit. Hayely is furious, Jackson is furious. Jackson attacks Klaus. Hayley jumps in and then Jackson again. Elijah breaks it up and protects his brother.

Davina goes to see Marcel distraught and brings the dagger with her. She wants Marcel to put Klaus down.

Meanwhile Hayley pleads with Elijah to help them leave town.

So why did Klaus admit to a murder he didn’t do? Cami confronts him about it and Klaus tells her the truth, that he didn’t kill Aiden. He just wanted them to fear him because he’s the only one that can protect Hope.

He tells Cami that a better man would protect her with that lie, but he’s leaving her with the burden of the truth that no one will believe.

Elijah goes to see Klaus and tell him Hayley and Jackson have taken Hope. Klaus is furious with him and attacks him. Elijah fights back and daggers him. Rebekah and Freya walk in as Klaus falls asleep.

Next week the fight against Dahlia continues and Freya wants to use Hope to lure Dahlia. Take a look at the promo:

‘The Originals’: Dahlia Has a Thousand Eyes

Dahlia is proving to be very powerful.

Dahlia is proving to be very powerful.

Dahlia has arrived and she’s the scariest villain we’ve seen yet. She observed them by taking control of the people in the town to spy on them. Jackson was even taken. All Jackson felt was darkness and after that, he didn’t trust the Mikaelsons to protect Hope and Hayley.

Elijah was also working on another plan. Marcel and him went to Josephine to cast a spell to a place that wouldn’t allow magic. Marcel would escort Hayley, Hope and Jackson that night.

Klaus was also working on a plan. He joined forces with Mikael. Klaus used his father’s love for Freya to get him to help.

They then took the soil of Scandinavia, Viking’s ashes and Freya’s blood binded it to a knife to use as a weapon.

Klaus used Davina to cast the spell. He also used her to find Mikael. Davina was getting Kol’s remains in return.

Everyone was trying to figure out a new way to protect themselves and destroy Dahlia.

Freya tried to use Jackson to track Dahlia’s magic, but Rebekah saw that Dahlia was drawing power from Freya, which we already knew. So I’m not sure why that was a surprise. Rebekah sent Freya away and Elijah was not happy about this. The one person that understood Dahlia’s magic.

Freya was wandering around the Quarter when her aunt found her. Dahlia called her selfish and ungrateful.

If you were wondering if Freya was telling the truth, the fear in her eyes told it all. She went straight to Elijah and Rebekah to warn them afterwards. Klaus and their father was her next target.

She would lure them into a place where mass murder happened. Where else would that be, but the church.

I didn't expect Mikael to be killed off again so soon.

I didn’t expect Mikael to be killed off again so soon.

Dahlia was prepared and used more people to fight them. Klaus and Mikael of course had no problem killing them, but Dahlia was more powerful and put Kluas and Mikael almost in the brink of sleep, like a dagger would do. Freya showed up and begged her aunt to stop. Elijah fed his brother his blood. Klaus was back to full speed and sped to Dahlia with the knife, but she was too quick.

She vanished and took the knife with her. She reappeared with the knife. All she wants is Hope, what she believes is rightfully her’s and will spare them if they give her Hope. She leaves them be to think on their fate.

Jackson had asked Aiden to help them run, but Aiden was also working for Klaus. He now had a hard choice to make, betray Klaus or Jackson. Klaus would kill him, but Jackson is a longtime friend. Josh knew Aiden spoke to Klaus that morning and asked what was going on and helped Aiden figure out how to handle it.

Marcel came to pick up Hayley, Hope and Jackson, but they were gone. Aiden was off in a car looking like he didn’t know what to do or mad at himself for betraying Jackson. He ended up telling Jackson there was traffic and he bought it.

Marcel found Hayley, Hope and Jackson and took them to safety.

Klaus, Mikael and Freya were all rattled by the failure. They needed to get all the ingredients again to form another weapon.

Klaus struck out at Mikael and Freya panicked. Elijah had to hold her back. You could see the hurt in Klaus’ eyes for all the pain his father has caused. He asks Mikael why he resented him and Mikael replied with, I just did. Mikael tells Freya he loves her before Klaus kills him.

They now have their Viking’s ashes.

Next week Klaus is losing it. Take a look at the promo:

‘The Originals’: To Save a Sister, Klaus had to Become Vulnerable

To save his sister, he weakened himself.

To save his sister, he weakened himself.

The Mikaelson family has always been complicated and Klaus has always had trust issues, but now those trust issues may cost him his siblings.

Freya seeing into Klaus’ mind didn’t show exactly what Klaus was afraid of. It showed Freya that he will never trust her, so in turn she will turn everyone against him. Her glimpse into his mind also showed her how to do it.

Ester was right about something, that he shouldn’t have let her in, but he was sacrificing himself for Rebekah.

I don’t know if Freya can tear them apart. After all that Klaus has done, Elijah and Rebekah are still by his side. It will take a lot to break that bond. Hayley on the other hand, would probably be easy.

Ester won’t be around to see the possible destruction of her son, Freya killed her. I can see why Klaus put magic resistant chains on her.  She has a lot of anger towards Ester and she has good reason. Klaus and Freya have been deeply hurt and have the emotional scars to show for it.

Rebekah finally has control of Eva’s body, but it wasn’t easy. Eva had taken complete control and snapped Marcel’s neck after waking up and attempted to take Hope. Eva was able to hold off Hayley and Klaus, but wasn’t able to capture Hope, but Eva did get away.

Klaus put Marcel on finding her and Elijah and Hayley to renegotiating another deal with Josephine. The only problem was that all the witches would be looking for Eva too.

Hayley was wondering what Klaus would be doing while they were doing the “dirty work”.

What Eva didn't realize was that she was the one being played.

What Eva didn’t realize was that she was the one being played.

He was finding a way to get Rebekah back in her body. He went to Freya, but it was too late. The situation was much more complicated now that Rebekah was lost in Eva’s mind.

She didn’t have a spell for getting her out. There was one person in their family that would know the spell, Ester.

Of course now that she’s a vampire, Klaus was able to compel the spell from her.

It wasn’t a nice reunion for mother and daughter though. Freya hates Ester for putting her into slavery when she was five years old. Ester was shocked to see her first born was still alive.

Ester gave them the spell, but it wasn’t a spell Freya could do without an anchor, so she came up with the idea of using Klaus. He didn’t want her to see all of his secrets to give to Dahlia, but Elijah volunteered to be the anchor to save his sister. His negotiations didn’t work well with Josephine. She didn’t mind sacrificing Rebekah to stop Eva.

Marcel did a little bit better. He went to Vincent for help. They tracked down Eva and then it appeared that Vincent had traded sides, but he was just gaining Eva’s trust to find out where the children were. She had also tricked him, well so she thought. She told Vincent that the kids didn’t have to die, even know they did have to die for the spell.

She was sacrificing nine witches from the nine covens to form a new more powerful coven to take over the city.

Vincent knocked Eva out, but that’s when he discovered all the kids were linked to her and if she died, they died.

Marcel and Vincent were going into Eva’s mind to find Rebekah, but Freya told Marcel that he couldn’t kill Eva until he found Rebekah and he would be vulnerable to death too.

Marcel found Rebekah first, but Eva wasn’t far behind. He told Rebekah to run and Eva tried to kill him. Vincent found them, but she also tried to kill him. It ended up being Rebekah who killed Eva.

Things were going badly till Klaus came and offered himself up as a second anchor.

They all made it out alive, well except for Eva. Klaus wanted to get Rebekah back into her body, but the kids were still linked to Eva’s body and Rebekah didn’t want the kids to die and she didn’t want Davina to die. She also still wants to bring Kol back.

Rebekah isn’t worried about what Freya saw in his mind and gave Klaus a rare thank you.

Rebekah is safe now, but none of them are really safe. Josephine saw Dahlia coming when she looked into Hayley’s future. The witch didn’t know it was Dahlia, but all she saw was darkness and said Hayley should be afraid.

There’s no more time to wait, Dahlia will arrive next week. Take a look at the promo:

‘The Originals’ Are Preparing for Dahlia

Freya tells Elijah and Klaus her story.

Freya tells Elijah and Klaus her story.

Can Freya be trusted? Elijah and Rebekah seem to think so, but Klaus doesn’t trust anyone.

Freya has lived a very hard life. Dahlia pulled her away from her family when she was so young and then did a spell to draw magic from her.

I was wondering how Freya could possibly be alive after so long, it was yet another spell. Her and Dahlia are pretty close to immortal. They can’t be killed, but they have to sleep for a century, only to be awake for one year. Sounds like her life was pretty much like her siblings.

Dahlia is an extremely powerful witch. She was a very powerful witch a thousand years ago when she could wipe out a village with a wave of a hand. I’m nervous about meeting her for the first time.

Elijah and Rebekah believed every word, but Klaus did not. Klaus wanted to know what was in it for her. I think that was pretty clear, she wants to kill Dahlia.

There was more to the story. She had told them she vowed not to love or have children, but she broke that vow. She fell in love in the 1400s and got pregnant. She tried to kill herself so her and her baby wouldn’t be slaves to Dahlia. That is when Freya learned she couldn’t be killed. She awoke after drinking the potion. She was alive, but her baby was not. Dahlia also killed her love.

Dahlia does a spell to draw Freya's power.

Dahlia does a spell to draw Freya’s power.

Klaus still doesn’t believe that she’s being sincere. He sees anger and fear in her eyes and believes she’ll do anything to survive.

For most of the episode I was getting really frustrated with Klaus. I feel like they should trust Freya, I want to trust Freya. Klaus doesn’t trust her at all. It was just Klaus being Klaus. Then Marcel said Klaus was the smartest person he knew. That made me rethink the whole episode.

Klaus is so calculating and he rarely lets anyone in. Hardly anyone has been able to out smart him. He spent a thousand years running from his father and kept evading him. He really is smart. And he’s also right about Elijah and Rebekah, when it comes to family, they are easily trusting. That’s why they’ve been able to forgive Klaus again and again. Klaus is very protective over them and his daughter. He would do anything to protect every single one of them.

At the moment Rebekah is the one in trouble. Eva is taking back control of her body and killing children. This is causing a lot of problems and Elijah is running out of time. He told the witches that Rebekah didn’t do the crimes, which isn’t exactly a lie, but he has one day to figure out who is doing them. Or in the real case, make sure Rebekah can take control of the body.

Rebekah might have been back in control if Klaus would have just let Freya help them. Instead they don’t know when Eva will return and Davina is one of  those children that Eva took. I’m assuming she’s still alive and just asleep. I can only hope at least.

Dahlia is coming.

Dahlia is coming.

While Elijah, Rebekah and Klaus were learning about Dahlia, Marcel was trying to find out about Eva.

He tried to talk to Vince, but he wasn’t willing to talk to him, so Marcel brought in Cami. She seems to be very good at getting information out of people.

She wasn’t looking forward to talking to Vince, seeing as while Finn was in Vince’s body, he tried to kill her.

Cami is very, very good. She made a deal to tell him about what Finn did, to get information. Vince doesn’t really know how to handle all of this information. Apparently he walked away from witch craft before his body was stolen. He believes that was why he was so vulnerable. He was willing to to tell Marcel what he knew. And it turns out Vince and Eva were married.

Hayley was off with her pack. They were sparing to test out their knew abilities. Jackson is really stressed out. He’s worried about Klaus and Aiden didn’t help. Aiden tells him he has to stay stronger than everyone else to stay the Alpha.

Hayley told Jackson that she can handle Klaus, but that’s not actually true. It doesn’t actually have anything to do with her. I think he’s so scared about Dahlia coming for his daughter and of course his trusting issues, he’s closing ranks to protect his daughter at all costs.

We’ll have to wait a little to see when Dahlia will come. ‘The Originals’ will return April 6. When the show returns Eva will have taken complete control of her body. Take a look at the promo:

‘The Originals’: A Family Affair

Father and daughter are reunited.

Everything was done in the name of protecting family this week, Hope, Finn and Rebekah.

Rebekah was spotted and cornered by witches. They said she would die for what she’s done. Before they got a chance to killer her, Marcel swooped in and saved her. He said they should get out of there because there were more witches.

Rebekah was stunned that he knew who she was. She wanted to know how, but they didn’t exactly have time to discuss that.

Who exactly did Kol put Rebekah in? Marcel knew how to find out. There’s a witch Josephine that would know and he also had someone else to contact. Elijah said he would go see the witch, but she doesn’t like vampires and Elijah’s charm wouldn’t be enough.

Marcel was right. Elijah alone didn’t get them very far, just through the door. It was Gia’s honesty that got them to seal the deal. She hates Beethoven and prefers jazz and apparently Josephine fell in love with a jazz player once. Gia also told Josephine she could trust Elijah, which is true. He may be calculating, as the witch said, but he’s also loyal.

The deal was pretty reasonable. Elijah takes custody of Rebekah’s body and all he has to do is return Vincent Griffith, the body that Finn inhabits.

This seemed all pretty easy, until they found out who Rebekah was inhabiting.

Marcel’s seer friend came, but he didn’t do what he came to do. He knew who Rebekah was as soon as he came through the door, at least you can assume by what he did next. He gave Rebekah and Marcel tea to see who she was. Marcel wasn’t forthcoming either though. He didn’t tell him that an original was occupying the body, only that she had no memory of who she is.

Rebekah was in Eve Sinclair, a witch who had been killing children to channel her power. No wonder those other witches wanted her dead.

The tea was laced with jimson weed, a poison that has been killing people since medieval times. Lucky for Rebekah, she knew the anecdote.

After Marcel came to, there was a lot of flirting going on. Rebekah told Marcel that she didn’t want to tell him she was back while she was in that body. She also said she didn’t want to kiss him in her current body, but says she doesn’t want to kiss him anyways. Marcel doesn’t believe that she doesn’t want to kiss him.

It was nice to see them together, but it was short lived. After Rebekah took a nap she woke up as Eva and went out to kill children. What happened to Rebekah? Did the anecdote let Eva take back over? Now that Elijah has custody of the witch, he’ll have to figure out how to control her.

‘The Originals’ have always been a family affair and there was a lot of family drama going on. Freya wanted to be reunited with her father, even though Michael has become a monster. Finn couldn’t talk Freya out of talking to Michael.

It was a very emotional and touching reunion that may make you look at Michael in a whole knew light. It always seemed like he never loved his children, but he does. He was so happy to see his long lost daughter again.

Freya was also reunited with her brothers, Elijah and Klaus, but not before Klaus almost killed Finn.

It was a nice battle of Finn vs. Klaus, both are very powerful, but Klaus took the upper hand and just about killed Finn. Elijah showed up before Klaus could finish the job.

Elijah had made that deal with Josephine for the witch Vince, not that Klaus likes making deals.

Klaus is trying to gain back control of the wolves.

Freya intervened and saved Finn yet again, but Finn was no longer in Vince’s body. I think he’s in her necklace now. She said he’s safe and that his hatred could no longer interfere with their cause.

Freya was never trying to kill Hope and said their mother had ruined Finn. She wants to kill Dahlia and has sent Michael for the items to do the job.

Klaus is furious that Michael is loose again and won’t accept his father or sister’s help in protecting his daughter.

Elijah on the other hand see’s a common goal, but doesn’t trust her. Freya is willing to earn Elijah’s trust.

Klaus is determined to use the wolves to protect Hope. He sent the pack out to search for Finn and Freya. His advice to Aiden actually saved the majority of the pack, there was only one causality.

I knew there was a reason Klaus was giving Aiden a tip, but I wasn’t sure what it was. They were seen later sitting together and Klaus telling Aiden that he should be the Alpha. That was his plan, taking control of the pack.

Klaus wanted to send the pack out after Michael, but Hayley didn’t want to sacrifice anymore wolves or to help him settle old scores. She was not happy with him trying to manipulate her and said if he tries it again, he won’t see her or their daughter again.

As I said, there was a lot of family drama this week, but there was some good too.

Jackson was keeping his distance and the awkward conversation of sex came up. Hayley was ready to dive in and then Hope woke up.

Hayley was having difficulty with Hope, but Jackson swooped in and helped. She initially didn’t want to take his help, she wanted every moment with her daughter.

Eventually they naturally had sex. This marriage is starting to be more real then what it started out to be.

While Hayley is moving forward with her marriage, Elijah is trying to move on too. While gaining alliances, he found something in Gia. I’m not sure if they slept together because they were trying to distract themselves from their unfruitful love lives or because there is something really there. Though I do have to say I did not see this coming. I usually see pairings before they happen, but this one was a surprise.

Next week Dahlia is coming and Rebekah is trying to deal with the angry witch inside her. Take a look at the promo:
