Plus, Hayley gets a disturbing message about her and Klaus’ baby! Is something wrong?
If you’re not a Mikaelson, or carrying a Mikaelson baby, or inconveniently linked to the werewolf carrying a Mikaelson baby, you’re pretty much inconsequential in Klaus’ (Joseph Morgan) eyes. That’s the lesson we re-learned on the Oct. 15 episode of The Originals, as Klaus & Co. effortlessly sacrificed the lives of two star-crossed, supernatural lovers — all in the name of winning back Elijah (Daniel Gillies).
But maybe “effortlessly” isn’t the best word to use here. After all, the Mikaelsons’ plan required getting Thierry (Callard Harris) to kill a vampire, thus turning Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) against him, and getting Thierry’s witch girlfriend Katie (Alexandra Metz) to use her magic to save him, thus cloaking Davina’s (Danielle Campbell) magical sensor, allowing Sophie (Daniella Pineda) to track down Elijah.
Almost everything went according to plan, until Klaus intervened and killed Katie. Rebekah (Claire Holt) was understandably furious with her brother, though he insisted it was all for the best. Davina may still hate “the old ones,” but saving Marcel earned Klaus his trust. To be honest, I’m not totally sure whether Elijah is coming back or not — Klaus said he is, but Davina told Marcel not to fork over the body — so I’ll just remain excited for the next time we get to see Mr. Gillies standing upright again.
Whenever that is.
Ladies Love Marcel
Speaking of things that confuse me, what the heck is going on with Marcel’s love life? He had Cami (Leah Pipes) eating out of the palm of his hand during this week’s masquerade ball, but when she saw him go bananas, she decided he wasn’t the guy for him. As she told Klaus, if Marcel “can turn on a dime like that,” he’s not the
vampire guy for her. (I forgot she still has no idea he’s a vampire.)
Then Klaus compelled Cami to remember the evening a bit differently, with Marcel playing the part of ‘perfect gentleman,’ reinforcing Cami’s token-human status.
But at the end of the episode, Marcel bumped into his old flame Rebekah, and sparks definitely flew again. The look on her face was a combination of “You’re scaring me” and “Do me right here in this dark alley,” both of which I would have to second.
Would Marcel just pick a girl and stick with her already? Who does he think he is, Elena Gilbert?!
But the final twist of the episode was definitely the most interesting — and the most terrifying.
Following Hayley’s (Phoebe Tonkin) weird mid-party encounter with a wayward wolf, she had one of Sophie’s witch friends take a peek at the baby growing inside her. The witch said she thinks it’s a girl, then proceeded to seize and speak in the craziest tongues I’ve ever heard in my damn life.
“Nos omnia perdetu el eam,” she kept repeating, though neither Hayley nor Google Translate could figure out what the heck it meant, or even what language it came from.
Any guesses? Seriously, I have no clue.
