Opening flashback to 1953 with Damon looking like a greaser and being betrayed by a member of his own family for money, to one of Augustine’s creepy Doctors.
Katherine attempting to write in a journal - LOL. And calling in Caroline for backup to help her with Stefan! I like seeing these two share screen time.
"Don’t worry I sanitized it." Somehow I don’t think that is what Stefan’s biggest worry is when it comes to the safe.
Elena and Aaron = blah. And as for the continued sob story of the little orphan boy, I’m over it. It’s just a regurgitation of a plot that we’ve already seen. One that that also holds no interest or excitement, much like Aaron’s character.
Considering you’re the one that killed Jesse, Elena - I don’t think that you should be pushing poor little orphan boy to be opening his eyes to the truth.
Daddy Gilbert = former Augustine Doctor. And Aaron being revealed as a Whitmore himself is still does not make him interesting.
Caroline taking therapy to the extreme!
Even in a cell it appears that Damon can make friends - hello Enzo! And as for the creepy and sadistic Dr. Whitmore, well I foresee pain and death in his future.
Killing his dog and mailing it to him - nice subtle way to begin your revenge, Enzo!
Still living in denail there Elena. Just accept it. Daddy Gilbert wasn’t just the kind and loving father that you want to remember him as.
Caroline and Katherine team work - love it!
Enzo voluntarily taking Damon’s place on the creepy Doctor’s table - talk about friendship.
Really Elena, you’re surprised that after being tortured and kept in a cell for five years, that Damon decided to keep the horrifying experience to himself.
Vampire buffet - not creepy at all.
Enzo coming up with a plan to escape, but with as predictable as this show has become I can already see that Damon will save himself at the expense of leaving Enzo behind.
Sob story learning the truth about his parents deaths - still boring. Although I liked him punching Wes.
Katherine putting herself at risk in the safe to help Stefan. And people said she doesn’t care.
A toast of vampire blood at a party held for a vampire hating, elitist society - does this seem a bit hypocritical to anyone else?
Damon flipping his switch so that he could leave his friend behind in a burning prison. And am assuming that it remained off until Lexi caught up with him in the 70’s.
Caroline the cockblocker, interrupting Stefan and Katherine’s moment.
Damon’s revelation about being the one to kill poor little orphan boy’s parents - again no surprise. Just like it wouldn’t surprise me to learn that Damon was also behind the crash that killed Elena’s parents. Knowing that he was in Mystic Falls that night. Also Damon’s plan for continued revenge against the Whitmore’s - love it!
And here returns little miss judgemental and disappointed. Elena being horrified to hear about what Damon had done to Aaron’s parents, especially because he killed them while dating her. No doubt she believed that because they were now together that Damon would “change”. Rolls eyes. And no doubt this will be the beginning of the end of Damon and Elena’s relationship. Really hoping that she then doesn’t go crawling back to Stefan and if she does that he doesn’t take her back after dumping him for his brother.
As much as I prefer Katherine to Elena, I also prefer Elijah to Stefan.
Bit slow on the uptake there Elena. And seeing Enzo alive and disturbingly humming…. next week should be worth watching, simply for the fact that Elena will be the one being tortured.
I think that promise will come back to hurt you, Bekah!
Does Hayley have no etiquette or manners at all. Not to mention should the pregnant woman be drinking - answer no. So shove your father of the year comment little wolf, because you won’t be winning any mother of the year awards either.
Am I the only one who likes the sound of Klaus’ wolf hunt - particularly because it upsets little miss Hayley?
Still typing the memoirs and still a useless character, with no relevance. Can Klaus just dispose of her already.
"Do we look like a bloody vampire, rescue squad?" My girl Rebekah.
I’m sorry, but I’m tired of hearing about Hayley’s whining to know about her family and using it as an excuse and a reason for everything. And seriously, your people - how long until you betray and stab ‘your people’ in the back. Not to mention how long before she betrays Elijah and Rebekah?
Still leaving yourself messages I see, Cami. Too bad no one really cares!
I’m sharing in Klaus’ laughter, these humans really are delusional if they think they are the ones calling the shots and that Klaus will answer to them. They are certainly in for a rude awakening - or death!
Just from Eve’s bitchy and overconfident attitude, it’s clear that she and Hayley are definitely related - must be why her character annoys me already.
Bad move faction - you didn’t teach Klaus a lesson, all you did was piss off an immortal hybrid that can’t be killed and delights in vengeance. There’s also nothing like a bloody massacre to unite old friends.
Davina walking around like she owns the place and Hayley falling back into old tricks. Let’s see if Davina is at least smart enough to believe or foolishly trust the backstabbing, knocked-up werewolf.
Pompous Ass will be definitely be the first to die. Nicely done, Marcel!
I like seeing Klaus and Marcel on the same side. Even if only for the moment.
"You can go now." Love threatening and dominant, Elijah!
Klaus true in his intentions to rule with Marcel, or is he simply playing the game better than Marcel?
You had no trouble betraying and sacrificing werewolves/hybrids that were your friends, but now that it’s your ‘family’ that abandoned you and you’ve never met, you’re suddenly all bent out of shape and angry about them being hunted down. I’m sorry but it’s this bullshit of Hayley’s that makes me loathe her character.
I’m hoping that once the baby is born Klaus kills her, or simply that the birth itself kills her - anyone else?
"I’m smart enough to know…" I wouldn’t go that far Hayley and Davina I’m sorry, Hayley may be telling you the truth right now, but she is also manipulating you.
This wolf bitch needs a good slapping.
So the ring ties back to Klaus birth father - I wondered if we would ever learn anything about that side of his parentage.
And despite Klaus’ words it seems he is taking steps to protect those apparently related to him.
Cami, tenacious - more like repetitive, annoying and again completely pointless. With every interaction between her and Klaus just being a poorly mirrored copy of his interactions with Caroline. And as excited as I am to see Klaus compelling Cami to leave, I just know that it is too good to be true.
And this Rebekah is your words coming back to haunt you. But just what is this secret that you know about Marcel, that will have Klaus hating him forever - is it perhaps that Marcel was in some way responsible for brining Mikael to New Orleans all those years ago???
Hayley and Elijah = me barfing. I’m sorry but I really hate this pairing and am beyond glad that they didn’t kiss.
And here begins the Mikaelson siblings slow, very slow rebuilding of their family, with an olive branch between brothers.
Davina why, why did you have to restore Cami’s memories - I knew it was too good to be true.
Rebekah confessing her sins to father Kieran - a sign of her wavering loyalty to her and Marcel’s plan, or her guilt perhaps?
"There is something fundamentally wrong with you." After a thousand years of being hunted, of being betrayed, I would say so. Although the sibling brekky was nice, despite Rebekah’s impending betrayal.
Poor Elijah, suffering the pain of after preaching to his brother to care, to so quickly believe that his good intentions were a lie. And from Tyler and Hayley of all people. Also Hayley’s plan to stay and nurse Elijah back to good health - complete stupidity. And just another reason why over the course of two episodes, my patience with her character has run out. Elijah is a thousand year old vampire who is about to become delirious and ravenously thirsty, and Hayley in all her infinite wisdom wants to stick around.
Marcel’s foolish minions are signing up for death, not battle. Battle implies that both sides have a chance at winning. And why for the love of everything are they listening to Tyler and giving his character more importance than he deserves. Please writers, can we just be done with him already!
Thank you, Rebekah! I might not like you conspiring against Klaus, but disposing of Tyler is a plus. Too bad you didn’t dispose of him for good though.
Klaus having Cami type his memoirs - just another useless plot, to keep this utterly pointless character still in the show. Still relevant. When in truth she is neither and I eagerly wait for the day that her character is gone for good. And hoping that the writers don’t do something stupid like make Cami a vampire, somewhere down the road, as she would make a truly, terrible vampire.
"You are the architect of your own unhappiness." And seriously with the shrinking - god can we please kill her already.
So they’ve sent Tyler to the garden - fabulous. That should keep him occupied for a while. Although they’re really naive and overconfident, if they think can subdue Klaus enough to lock him up down there. Especially without Davina’s help.
Poor jealous Hayley, doesn’t like hearing about Elijah’s past lovers.
Poor Joshy - he’s dead and doesn’t even know it.
A priest having a drink and Klaus describing his like for Cami - for the same exact reasons and traits that he likes in Caroline. Again, Cami is nothing more than a poorer, human, version of Caroline. And as overjoyed as I would be to see her character gone, I know I’m not that lucky.
And we’re back to Elijah’s hallucinations of Celeste, his former witchy lover. Would have been better to see Elijah agonizing over his love for Katherine or even Tatia, as it would have made more sense, had more relevance - especially to his relationship with Klaus, than this little witch did.
And so it begins, Battle Royale - vampire style!
Klaus the marksman.
And this is why you shouldn’t have stayed with a thousand year old, hallucinating and delirious vampire, Hayley. And if it wasn’t for the mystery woman you’d be dead. Something that I wouldn’t be too upset about.
Now this is what we call angering the wolf my naive lackeys and as the Hulk once coined, you won’t like him when he’s angry.
Absolutely love the growl and the flashing of his eyes! Not to mention Rebekah’s look of ‘Oh shit’, realizing what is about to happen and dropping the dagger. Girl knows she’s messed up.
This fight, hands down - best part of the episode, and even better than Klaus’ bloody hybrid massacre. He just makes mince meat of everyone standing in his way and it’s a pity that he didn’t get the chance to kill more, including Diego. Before Marcel, listening to Rebekah’s pleas, picked up the coin and pledged his allegiance to Klaus, relinquishing his throne.
Random Plot Twist - instead of accepting Marcel’s surrender, Klaus takes his heart, killing him. Would have been extremely interesting. And again, loved Klaus’ bloody grin.
And again with Cami and her still useless story.
Mystery woman = Eve. Part of Hayley’s family pack. A pack that was cursed by Marcel to reverse their curse, making them human only on the night of the full moon - this is intriguing and answers the question about the wolf following and protecting Hayley. Although I have to wonder if for as long as they are wolves, if they are aware, or surviving purely on instinct?
That’s quite a few bodies, Marcel should be grateful there wasn’t more.
Marcel preaching to Klaus about loyalty and how it’s earned - sadly a hard truth that Klaus needed to hear. But not one that he hasn’t heard before.
The child that Hayley wants you to play ‘daddy’ to, Elijah.
More truths that both Elijah and Rebekah needed to hear. And Klaus leaving them with tears dripping down his face is - I believe, the moment that will, although break, begin to heal these three lost siblings. Klaus never having been the one to leave his sibling’s before.
So Cami started leaving herself messages and finding a photo of Klaus and Marcel from the 1919 - I knew the hope of her leaving was too good to be true.
