As predicted, the peace in New Orleans didn’t last very long. In “The Big Uneasy” the witches threw a big party. As you all know, the bigger the party on this show, the larger the body count. Hayley takes charge of the werewolves, and ends up in the cross-fire at the party. Marcel makes a move against the Mikaelsons, which ends very badly for Thierry. Monique seems to have taken more of a leading position with the witches, demanding that Genevieve sacrifices herself so that the last Harvest girl can be resurrected. However, Genevieve has another plan and they seem to come to an agreement at the end of the episode, for however long that will last. Josh gets his daylight ring (finally) which will hopefully mean that he’ll be around more now. Elijah and Klaus keep bickering, while across town the vampires choose Marcel’s side in the war.
Best lovers’ spat: It was fun while it lasted but, as I knew it would, the relationship between Klaus and Genevieve ended very badly. He presented her with the cut off hands of someone who tried to steal Esther’s spell book for her. She refuses to help Cami’s uncle because of it. There was no way this relationship would last, I prefer them as enemies anyway.
Best character: I know a lot of people have been disliking Hayley lately, probably because she’s taken a stand against the main characters, Elijah and Klaus. But you have to see it from her perspective. She’s finally found her family, the one she’s been looking for her entire life. Of course she’s going to side with them. Klaus and Elijah are putting their needs and that of the vampires in New Orleans first, while the werewolves are still out in the bayou. Had Hayley not pursued Celeste a few weeks back, her family would still be cursed. When this show first started I thought it would be one threat after the other against her and the baby with the Mikaelsons protecting her. But I like that she can take care of herself. She’s completely justified distrusting Klaus, because we all know Klaus rarely does something that doesn’t benefit himself. I can’t wait to see her become the werewolf queen.
Most pitiful character: I just have to mention this, but I feel bad for the last harvest girl. She’s still dead in a coffin because Genevieve took her spot (which was completely random). At this point I have no doubt that Genevieve will not make it until the end of the season. I just hope that when she is resurrected, they don’t throw her aside like the other girl (who was re-casted btw, what’s the point if you’re not going to use her).
Boldest move: Marcel sure knows how to send a war declaration. But not exactly one of his smartest moves. He had to know there would be retribution. Poor Thierry paid the price for it. Definitely one of the bloodiest scenes on this show to date, after the Harvest that is. However, I have a feeling it’s just the beginning.
Most annoying character: Can we get rid of Monique yet? Her hatred of Davina is really starting to get on my nerves. Saying that Davina hasn’t lost anything, you mean besides her freedom, the guy she liked and the person who used to be her best friend? And now she thinks she can rule the witches. Like Genevieve, she won’t be around next season, mark my words.
Favorite scene: I’m probably alone in this but my favorite scene was the one between Klaus and Hayley. I think it’s sad that this is the first scene they’ve had together in months, especially considering that baby is coming very soon. Klaus seems to like Hayley’s new role with the werewolves. I really hope he doesn’t double cross her. (As you can probably tell by now, I kinda ship them)
Klaus: “Pity, I will miss the sex.”
Hayley: “The last month of pregnancy is all hormones and mood swings, so unless you want me to snap your arm like a twig, I suggest that you tell me what is going on.
If I seem a little off my game it’s because it’s been a while. Also I wasn’t really a fan of this episode, felt very chaotic to me. Anyway, check in again next week for the new review. Let me know in the comments what you thought of the episode.
