Watch out, Klaus, because Elijah is back in a major way on this week's episode of The Originals. Now that he's out of the coffin, Elijah takes matters into his own hands with Hayley, as well as solving one of Klaus's biggest witch problems. Naturally, the brotherly bickering has already begun, but that's why we love the original vampires, right?
This week's episode also has a much-anticipated hookup and a lot of bloodshed. Oh, and in case you were wondering, Davina's still in the attic. As we patiently wait for the imminent crossover episode with The Vampire Diaries, let's break down how the old TVD gang would react to what their buddies in New Orleans got into this week.
When The Originals Are Back to Their Old SelvesWhat can I say, I love seeing Elijah and Klaus back to their weird, old-timey ways. In this case, we have "vampire book club," because reading edifies the mind. Obviously. And then of course, there's Rebekah dragging the dead body out of the room in her minidress. Classic Mikaelsons!
When Klaus's Inner Monologue Is Reading PoetrySpeaking of Klaus's old-timey ways, everything about this is campy and weird and amazing. Plus, who exactly is Klaus's metaphorical foe? Elijah? Marcel? Everyone? You're right, it's probably everyone.
When Hayley Is ComplainingHayley has always bugged me, but now she's downright whiny. It's particularly hard to have sympathy for her when she's complaining about living in a vampire house, especially since they're protecting her. You'd think she'd have learned her lesson about the repercussions of sleeping with vampires, but based on her meaningful glances with Elijah, maybe not.
