New Orleans is not a safe place to be and Marcel is not a safe person to fall in love with. Especially, when Klaus and Rebekah are behind the mischief happening and boy, are they evil!
Since Marcel won’t give Elijah back to Klaus, he obviously needs to go to his devious plan B.. He also needs to get back on Marcel’s good and trustworthy side, which means competing with Marcel’s new bff Thierry, who seems to have a vendetta against him since Klaus bit him the minute he got back into town. Thierry has been pretty skeptical linking the recent nightwalker deaths with the originals coming back. So how to get rid of him in order to get closer to Marcel?? Cue in our dear sister. Rebekah makes her way down to Sophie to let her know that Hayley was almost killed by some vampires after someone made the call that a werewolf was in town. Concluding that Hayley stopped by at Katie’s shop, Rebekah threatened her for a confession, in which she also found out that Thierry is madly in love with Katie.
You see, thats where the problem lies. Witches and vampires are sworn enemies! This is like the Romeo and Juliet of New Orleans. When Klaus finds all of this out, he see’s an opportunity but unfortunately Marcel already knows that Thierry likes Katie and he isn’t too worried about Thierry betraying him. Plus he likes the intel he gets from their relationship. But Klaus does not take no for an answer and places the little seed of doubt in Marcel’s brain.
Marcel decides to have Thierry prove himself and orders him and some fellow nightwalkers go on a rampage and destroy things in the witches hood. Of course, Klaus knows that Thierry will do everything keep his love safe and he compels his newly acquired night walker to go and bite her, fully knowing Thierry will kill him in a fit of rage. That is the biggest mistake and worst thing a vampire could do, is to kill one of their own. Like Klaus had envisioned it, thats how the plan goes. Thierry stabs his fellow vampire and Katie is scared for her love who goes to confess and face the wrath of Marcel.
Sophie prays on Katie’s fear and tells her they need to perform magic to save the witches and Thierry. This is where things get real!!!! Klaus slyly has his nightwalker give Marcel an envelope with the recipe to make daylight rings, stating it was found at Katie’s place. His rage gets the best of him and he sentences his friend to 100 years in the garden, which we later learn is getting locked behind a stone wall rotting in your own body. Anyways, Katie’s powerful magic wakes Davina, who senses that something is wrong and that magic is being used in town. She’s linked or sired to Marcel in a way so she tries to help him regain strength while frantically drawing the faces she see’s in her mind on the easel. Katie bursts through the streets of the square disrupting Marcel’s masquerade party and is about to kill him, when hero of the day Klaus runs and snaps her neck, saving his buddy old pal. Well played Klaus. Well played.
Obviously, Klaus has no care for anyone who stands in his way and he uses people like pawns to get what he wants. While Katie was using powerful magic, Rebekah was aiding Sophie in her locator spell in an attempt to find Elijah’s body and steal it. Amidst the strong magic, Davina wouldn’t even sense that Sophie was doing anything. Unfortunately, Klaus killed Katie too soon and Sophie could not continue with the spell. While, Rebekah thought they failed the mission, Klaus soon learned that ‘helping’ out and old friend and being in cahoots could get you what you really wanted. Marcel agreed to return Elijah to him, but when Davina learned of the plan refused. What is this girls deal? She doesn’t even know the original vampires, she’s sired to Marcel and believes everything he say’s, but now she won’t give the body back because she wants to find a way to kill the originals once and for all?
Rebekah can sit there and say how much she hates Klaus and all the bad things he’s done by manipulating people and so on, but the truth is, she is just as diabolical as he is. Knowing that they have such a big plan to pull off, she decides to invite Cami to the party that Marcel is throwing in order to keep him distracted. I’m sure the beautiful angelic outfit was also part of Rebekah’s ploy because Cami look to die for and both Marcel and Klaus noticed. Yet, Cami wasn’t good enough to distract Marcel from the vampire problem. While Cami watched as her knight in shining armor pushed around and yelled at some guy, she was quite disappointed that Marcel wasn’t the guy she thought he was. Surprisingly, I don’t think she cared to much as she realized that she actually really liked Klaus. Who wouldn’t fall for the innocent British accent? And Klaus busted his Damon moves out admitting that he also felt something for her, before compelling her to forget everything and give Marcel another chance. While I do think Marcel really cares for the blondie, he’s still got a thing for Rebekah and toying with her feelings at the end, he knows he can get her if he really wants to. This will definitely come into play when Klaus makes a move on Cami, which trust me he will eventually. Ummm, remember Klaus you have a pregnant werewolf at home!
Speaking of the pregnant werewolf. She spent some time with a witch who decided to play a little game of ‘whats your baby’s gender’ with some old voo-doo tricks used by her grandmother. She was able to tell her that the baby will be a girl and than kept repeating the phrase, ‘Nos omna perdetu el eam’ which led her to convulsions. Hayley later tried to translate the phrase in Google Translate, but no luck. What could Sabine have been saying that left her so worried? Well, I did some digging of my own and found out that piecing those words together from Latin means, “We all lose it” or something along those lines. But, after further digging I was led to believe I should look into eliam, and found out that the phrase is a warning against evil and danger. Does this mean the baby will be an even more evil spawn of the hybrid and the werewolf? More evil than Klaus and Silas combined? Should Hayley have aborted the baby? Is this baby not as ‘special’ as they all made the baby out to be?? This should be super interesting!
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

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)
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?
