Lots of questions get answered on this week's crazy episode of The Originals, and we're dissecting everything that happens with the help of The Vampire Diaries crew! This week, we head down to the bayou to find some savagely slaughtered witches and a lot of the season's mysterious puzzle pieces are put together. Mainly, the truth about last week's church murders is revealed and we find out why Davina is so tight with Marcel. There's not a ton of Klaus or Rebekah this week, but we learn a whole bunch about the witches of New Orleans and a bloody ceremony called The Harvest.
Last week's episode was so good that I'm not surprised this one doesn't quite measure up. I wish the writers had kept some of the mysteries going longer. I was willing to get invested! Instead, we've just got one big problem on our hands, and her name is Davina. Oh, and did I mention Elijah is back in full? I'll let Damon, Elena, and co. explain everything.
When Davina Brings Elijah Back to LifeLet's face it, one more episode with Elijah in his coffin and I may have given up on The Originals. This week, Davina frees him, and they get a little one-on-one time to chitchat about how Davina wound up locked away in a church attic. I'm not sure why she trusts Elijah with such important information, but I'll go with it.
When Davina Says She Has to DieWhen Davina first says this, I'm cool with it. She hasn't really done anything yet that makes me like her, besides wake Elijah from eternal rest. To my own dismay, I get a little more sympathetic toward the sad little witch by the end of the episode.
