The Originals - Episode 1.02 - House of the Rising Son - Review

“House of the Rising Son” brings Rebekah to New Orleans. She’s worried about Elijah because he’s not returning her calls. Although, no one seems to be happy to see her, since she left a trail of dead vampires behind. More of the Original family’s history is revealed, including how they met Marcel. Hayley and Klaus realize they’re willing to fight for their baby. I know most viewers wanted Elijah back this week, but unfortunately he remains in Marcel and Davina’s possession. However I have a feeling he’ll be back soon enough. This show is called “The Originals” after all.

Favorite character: Since this was a Rebekah-centric episode, I’ll of course go with her (plus she’s also my favorite Original). We got to see 2 Rebekah’s this week. One in 1820, as she once again loses the man she loves, thanks to Klaus. I actually liked her and Marcel up until the point where he chose becoming a vampire over her. However I do feel like there’s more to the story. Marcel seemed genuinely betrayed by Rebekah leaving New Orleans. The 2nd Rebekah is the one in the current timeline. She’s completely fed up with Klaus’ antics and yet is unable cut him out of her life. She eventually finds a way to make peace with her brother so that they can get Elijah back.
Biggest “Aaw” moment: As brief as the moment may have been, Marcel’s date with Cami was adorable. His feelings for her do seem to come somewhat out of the blue, so I do hope we’ll get a better explanation as to what drew him to her.

Favorite scene: I love all of the Rebekah and Hayley scenes, but my favorite is when Hayley gives Rebekah the remaining daggers. Finally someone is smart enough to get rid of those things (totally mentioned this in my previous review btw). I, and I’m sure Claire and Phoebe feel the same way, hope we get a lot more scenes with these two and that they develop a real friendship. They could both use a friend.
Biggest bitch moment: Davina’s encounter with Rebekah. She’s wondering why Rebekah’s mad at her, it may have something to do with the fact that she’s holding Rebekah’s brother hostage. Marcel certainly seems to have Davina wrapped around his finger. I wonder how she ended up there.

Favorite quotes: Rebekah: “Klaus, come out here and tell me what you’ve done with our brother, you narcissistic, backstabbing, wanker.”
Marcel: “Keep your sister in line.” Klaus: “I’d have greater chance of draining the Mississippi with a straw.”
Next week there seems to be a party, and we all know how those tend to end up bloody. With Marcel wanting to kill the Originals, he should really give the Gilberts a call, and Klaus and Rebekah wanting their brother and their home back, it seems like the war has officially started. Check in again next week for an all new review and sound off in the comments about what you thought of “House of the Rising Son”.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
