The Originals

The Originals- Girl in New Orleans (1×04)



Big revelations took place on this weeks Originals as Cammie opened up about her past, which is possibly the reason Marcel is interested in her in the first place. Also, Davina spent a night out on the town causing teenage mayhem, Klaus showed his more emotional side, Rebekah continued to try and pick up Marcel and Elijah returned from the dead. In other words, all is well in New Orleans.

Cammie: Rebekah was determined as hell this week to find Davina’s attic and save her brother. So determined that she found the only place in town with shutters just by googling. Pretty superb skills she’s got there.  In order to find out where the attic was, Rebekah compelled the priest, who we later found out was Marcel’s ally and on so much vervain, not even an original could compel him.  This was also the spot were a gruesome and terribly disturbing church massacre occurred not too long ago. A  student studying to be a pastor killed several of his classmates, before slicing his own head off. Cammi was in New Orleans trying to find out why her twin brother could have done such a thing without any previous traces of mental illness. What could have compelled him to do such a thing?



Klaus: Alas, after Cammi reveals her past to Klaus, does she get a hint that mabye her brother had been fighting some ‘demons.’  This hits close to home for Cammi, who just found out that Klaus was a vampire and figures that someone must have compelled her brother to commit such a horrible act. Meanwhile, Klaus is continuing his diabolical plans to become the king of New Orleans, but gets a little sidetracked dealing with his emotions for Cammi. Realizing that Marcel is taking his time bringing Elijah back to him, he figures Davina has done some convincing. He pursues Cammi, one of the secret weapons he has against Marcel, to do his dirty work for him. He tells her everything and keeps her from talking by compelling her to only remember exactly what he told her, when she is in his prescense. When she isn’t, she forgets all of his secrets. He compells her to agree to Marcel’s proposal and watch over Davina during the town’s music festival. Marcel is convinced she’s doing him a favor, but she’s secretly working for the enemy. She leads  Davina into the church, where Davina wants to speak to her school crush, Tim; obviously a set up for what Klaus has in store for the young witch.


Davina: Davina is a powerful witch, as we’ve all witnessed. She’s Marcels secret weapon and the one thing the witches want to get ahold of. It seems that Marcel’s goal is to keep Davina safe by making her a prisoner in the attack. That doesn’t seem to float her boat though and she threatens to do some harm to him if he doesn’t let her have a night on the town. Really, all Davina wanted to do was admire the boy playing the violin. He was crush back at school before she had to leave because her powers got too strong. Klaus used Tim as a victim by putting Davina in such a position that she would ultimately have to save the boy she loves. Davina had a choice. Either she stayed loyal to Marcel and Tim died, or she became loyal to Klaus and Tim lived. This obviously enraged the teen witch, who doesn’t like being told what to do. Maybe her powers work on normal vampires, but Klaus is a strong mofo, who has too many cards up his sleeve to be manipulated by a youngin, no matter how strong a witch she is. Ultimately, Tim took a plunge to his death, and Davina succumbed to Klaus’s plan begging him to save Tim. But tit for tat. Now Davina owes Klaus a huge favor, and it seems like his persuasion of how evil Marcel is to her, rubbed off a little as she got a little snappy with Marcel.


Hayley: Meanwhile, wolfy girl is enjoying all the finer things about pregnancy. And refusing to see doctors. But Angela (the witch) has set up a meeting for Hayley to get her first checkup. But Hayley realizes sooner than later that this isn’t just an ordinary checkup–its a setup.  Angela called in some warlock men to ‘get it over with’ and the doctor was trying to inject Hayley with some drugs to knock her out. Thankfully, Hayley’s got some mad ninja reflexes and managed to escape, killing all the men in the forest before Rebekah came to her aid. Unfortunately, Rebekah got stabbed in the heart and blacked out and when she awoke, she was greeted by Klaus who was a little pist off about the whole situation given that the witches were suppose to protect his pregnant werewolf, not try to kill her and the baby.  But it seems like Hayley has a wolf ally on her side, and a little baby who helped heal all her wounds, saving her from death. Aww, baby saving momma before its even born. It was also super cute to see Klaus actually worried about his baby momma and unborn child. He even carried Hayley back home and called her love in that sexy British accent. Swoon.


Elijah: Elijah is one lucky man and should be thankful he has such a determined and loving sister. After tracking down the attic, Rebekah found Elijah and was swooped into the past, where Elijah was able to tell her about his plan in the future. I don’t know its confusing. We entered a psychic vision dream for a little and it was weird!!!!! But we found out that he was actually alive after Davina had undaggered him trying to find a way to kill an original vampire. Yeah, this rule is news to me too. But apparently, the symptoms wear off if one is undaggered and they come back to life, keeping their deadly appearance. Elijah used that to trick Davina into thinking he was still dead and than cornering her with the worst sentence a girl can ever hear, ‘We need to talk.’ Uh-oh!!


But of course, the most crucial moment was towards the end, where in some twisted way, shape and form, Klaus found a way to be honest with Cammi without scaring her away. See, I think he really likes Cammi alot and it refreshing for him to be able to open up to someone that isn’t 500-years-old or a vampire. But just a human. In the plainest, simplest, and most innocent way. Cammi fell apart pleading that he didn’t compel her to forget all that she had learned about the night her brother died. She wanted to find out why he did it, who the demon or vampire was that compelled him and what actually went on in the church. But Klaus, did what he always does and ignored her and for a second I was upset. But than I realized that he was doing this for her. He wanted her not to be in pain, not to worry, not to have bad dreams, but just put it all behind her. He would find out for her. And when he did, he would let her know. This I think let us build an even better relationship with Klaus. Not the Klaus who twists people’s heads off, but the Klaus that paints horses for Caroline. Also, I think this is the one weapon Klaus needed against Marcel because who run this town, Marcel. So who compelled the twin brother? Marcel. Why is he getting so close to Cammi? Well maybe because he knows she’s here to avenge her brother’s death in the most humanly of ways.

Joseph Morgan Reveals If He’d Ever Reprise His Character Klaus Mikealson for ‘Legacies’



If you’ve been waiting for the day where Klaus Mikealson strolls back into Mystic Falls to pay his daughter, Hope Mikealson, and the Salvatore School — which he helped fund — a visit, well, don’t get your hopes up. 

The first two seasons of Legacies have given us some grade-A guest stars from The Vampire Diaries and The Originals including Aunt Freya (Riley Voekel), Kai Parker (Chris Wood), and Matt Donovan (Zach Roerig).  We even briefly saw Lizzie and Josie Saltzman’s birth mother Josette (Jodi Lyn O’Keefe). 

But as for baddie Klaus Mikealson, the man who brought him to life, Joseph Morgan, doesn’t think he’ll ever reprise his role again.

And turns out, he has a really good reason!

TV Guide caught up with the actor to talk about his Peacock show, Brave New World, and when asked about guest starring on The CW teen drama, he bluntly and rapidly shut down the possibility.

“No never, never. You’re never going to see it.” Morgan said. “You can hold your breath as long as you want. You know why? I have The Originals box set on my shelf, and it’s a beautiful thing because it’s five DVD sets that are a complete story from beginning to end of this guy, Klaus Mikaelson — well, starting back in The Vampire Diaries Season 2. So I just feel like to come back as a ghost or a flashback or something, for me, that journey, that story has ended. That’s the complete story, and it just doesn’t feel right to me to do that.”

As much as we’d like to see Klaus in the flesh again, you have to admit that’s a satisfactory answer. It shows that Morgan cares enough about the character not to reprise him without a purpose or taint his legacy. 

Klaus Mikealson’s story came to a fitting end in the series finale of The Originals when he redeemed himself for the greater good and sacrificed himself alongside his brother Elijah to save his daughter. Since then, Hope has carried on his legacy; his memory lives on as she mentions him pretty often and channels what he taught her to protect her friends and fight off a plethora of demons and monsters. 

Morgan added that he felt like series creator Julie Plec understood where he was coming from. 

“I think Julie [Plec] feels the same. It just feels like it would be strange, like a little forced,” Morgan continued. “Like I’m coming back just so we can see something else of him, but when we see it we go, ‘Ugh, that was it?’ And I don’t want his legacy to be, ‘Ugh.’ I don’t know what the scene could be that it would be exciting enough and epic enough after the journey that he’s had.” 

Morgan may get a pass, but Candace Accola surely doesn’t.  We’d love to see her reprise her role of Caroline Forbes considering she’s raising two daughters with Alaric but has yet to pay them a visit or help out with the school! Don’t let us down, Caroline! 

The fact that she is still alive in the supernatural world and has such close ties to Mystic Falls but yet never comes to visit doesn’t paint her in a great light!

The Originals’ Claire Holt Welcomes First Child With Husband Andrew



Claire Holt Gives Birth

Welcome, James Holt Joblon!

Claire Holt and husband Andrew Joblon welcomed their first child together.

The Originals actress shared a picture of her little man on Instagram writing, “Everything they say is true. There is no love like it.”

In the photo, James is wrapped in a hospital blanket and peacefully sleeping in his momma’s arms.

Pregnancy has been a difficult journey for Holt who suffered a miscarriage and underwent a consequent dilation and curettage procedure just seven months before she became pregnant with James.

As I inch closer to my due date, I often find myself reflecting on the incredible capacity of the female body. I cannot believe that I’ve created, nourished and housed a little human! It hasn’t been an easy process – I’ve cried many tears and cursed my aching body countless times. However, I have never loved or respected myself more than I do now. This #internationalwomensday is a particularly meaningful one for me. I am truly in awe of all those who have taken the journey of motherhood before me, and I feel so excited to be joining their ranks. I’m also reminded of the incredible strength that women possess, which extends far beyond having children. Every day I see examples of kind women, passionate women, intelligent women, driven women. I am endlessly inspired by ladies I know and love as well as by those I’ve never even met. Thank you to all the women in my life – and to women everywhere – for never ceasing to amaze me.

In October, she announced her pregnancy writing:

“My heart is bursting. I’m so happy to share with you that we are having a baby! It still doesn’t feel real. These past few months have been filled with excitement, anxiety, tears, joy, uncertainty but most of all gratitude,” she wrote alongside the pregnancy announcement.

My heart is bursting. I’m so happy to share with you that we are having a baby! It still doesn’t feel real. These past few months have been filled with excitement, anxiety, tears, joy, uncertainty but most of all gratitude. You never forget the deep pain of loss. It dims with time but it informs many of your experiences. Our loss earlier this year was the darkest moment of my life. Yet, it made me infinitely more thankful for the precious baby growing inside me today. I want to take a moment to acknowledge all those struggling with miscarriage, infertility or any of the difficulties that come with bringing new life into the world. I know that these announcements can hurt. I’ve felt it all. My heart is with you and I pray that our story gives you hope. Thank you all so much for your love and support – I can’t wait to share this journey with you.

She also reflected on the miscarriage writing, “You never forget the deep pain of loss. It dims with time but it informs many of your experiences.”

We’re so happy for Claire and Andrew!

Sending congrats and love to the family!

Legacies – Mombie Dearest (1×06)



Legacies Mombie Dearest

Alaric has faced dragons, gargoyles and dryads, but the most threatening and terrifying monster was his late bride.

No, not because Jo herself was scary but because whatever resurrected her was hoping to use human emotion to pry the knife from Ric.

Of course, Ric is a vampire hunter with years of experience under his belt so, despite the jarring visual of his late fiancee standing in front of him in her still-bloody wedding dress, he didn’t fall for it immediately.

I’m proud to say he initially pointed a crossbow at “that thing” before slowly warming up to the idea that maybe it was really Jo.

However, at no point did Ric let his guard down because he knew that eventually, the true monster would come to light.

And boy, the zombie did.

The zombie knew that there was no way it could fool Ric so it latched onto Josie, the twin most interested in connecting with her birth mother on her 16th birthday.

Josie, who is named after Jo, was drawn to her birth mother because as she mentioned, she’s never found much of herself in Caroline.

That isn’t to say that she doesn’t love her mom, but Lizzie has always been more like Caroline, which us OG TVD fans can attest to.

Thankfully, we also know that Caroline grew out of the insecure, mean-girl shenanigans so there’s hope for Lizzie. More on that later.

Sadly, Jo’s bonding time with her mother ended with her getting buried alive. Not ideal by any means, but at least her friends Penelope, Hope and M.J all came to the rescue.

They fought through what looked like an episode of The Walking Dead before M.J could hear Josie’s screams and dig her up.

Thankfully, she was wearing Hope’s necklace, one that makes quiet things loud.

It’s poetic actually to see how many people want to help Josie free herself from Lizzie’s shadow.

Despite Penelope’s toxic attitude, she really does have Josie’s best interests at heart and seeing how she almost lost her, the two reconnected romantically.

What does that mean for Rafael?

As for Lizzie, she needs a major attitude adjustment.

Yes, seeing your birth mother in the flesh may come as a surprise but her hostility was not necessary.

Admittedly, she was being protective in order not to get hurt, but there’s nothing to blame or hate your “bio mom” for. It’s not like she wanted to die and never be a part of your life!

Secondly, everyone is right — she’s a terrible sister.

Lizzie takes Josie for granted which was more noticeable on this episode than ever before.

Her only priority is herself; she wanted to get the guy, she wanted to be happy, and Josie was only deserving of the “consolation prize.”

She didn’t even notice Josie was missing from the party until Rafael hurt her by telling her that he wasn’t interested in a relationship with her despite their hook-up from the previous night.

And only after she felt hurt did she even notice her sister never showed up to the party!

With the Gemini Curse creeping up on them on their 22 birthday, these two really have to find some common ground otherwise Josie doesn’t stand a chance next to the dominant twin.

I know Penelope wanted to prove to MJ that Lizzie was a terrible person but until Rafael showed up, it seems like she was really going to give MJ a chance.

Unfortunately, it’s because of girls like her that the good guys never win. MJ was so smitten with her, he knew everything about her down to her favorite song yet she still chose the “good looks” over the guy who went above and beyond to treat her like a princess.

Now that Rafael was honest with her, she’ll likely pursue MJ, but I sincerely hope he treats her the same way she’s been treating him.

Thank u, next!

I’m glad Rafael had a heart-to-heart with Hope and admitted that he wasn’t completely over his girlfriend’s death.

It was a bit concerning that he just fell for Josie instead of mourning his girlfriend. However, his hook-up with Lizzie and his desire to “be there” for her now makes more sense.

He’s trying to ease his guilt.

Their friendship is surprising but when Landon’s personal life comes into play, specifically his connection to the knife, Rafael will be a good contact for Hope.

You could probably tell from my reviews that I haven’t really been too keen on Legacies. I just couldn’t get into it because it was lacking the magic that both The Vampire Diaries and The Originals had.

They say it usually takes about four full episodes to really fall in love with a show. Mombie Dearest was the one that changed things for me.

It’s the most fun I’ve had watching an episode which I think mainly stems from the fact that it evoked so many of the emotions I’ve felt while watching the Vampire Diaries.

I was crying the same way I used to back in season one.

It could be because there were so many references to the sister shows — Jo, Caroline, the curse, Stefan Salvatore, the debutant ball, Hope’s aunt — but this episode just had the Mystic Falls vibe. The friendships are falling into place, the characters are being fleshed out and the main story-arc is promising.

I knew it was impossible for Jo to stay especially because she’s a witch who believes in the natural order of things, but I so hoped they’d find a way to keep her around.

It would have added so much to the show.

It was also hard to say goodbye to her again. I can’t imagine having to do that shortly after meeting your biological mom, but at least Josie and Lizzie got the opportunity.

As for Ric, it was definitely heartbreaking to see him lose Jo again, but the moment provided the closure he never had. After sixteen years, he was able to let her go knowing she was in a better place.

And I’m obviously still holding out for Caroline’s return. She’s bound to make a few visits considering, as we predicted, she’s traveling the world in hopes of finding the cure to break the Gemini Curse.

I wonder when they’ll tell the twins about that.

And if the knife possibly has something to do with it!

What are your thought on “Mombie Dearest?” Are you Team Josie or Team Lizzie?
