The Originals - Episode 1.04 - Girl in New Orleans - Review

“Girl in New Orleans” marked Elijah’s much anticipated return. But that’s not all that happened this week. The episode  seemed to focus more on Davina and Cami. We learn that Cami had a twin brother who, probably under compulsion, killed 9 people plus himself. Davina, on the other hand, is craving more freedom. Klaus tries to get her to switch sides but has to resort to blackmail when she refuses. In the meantime the witches double-cross Hayley and try to kill her and her baby. Clearly they forgot that if they kill her, they also kill Sophie. (Or maybe they do remember, but just don’t care.) Rebekah finally finds Elijah, only for him to tell her to leave him there and that he has a plan. Let’s hope his plan works.

Favorite moment: Hayley fights off the witches. Totally forgot about the werewolf super-strength. The scene reminded me of when Klaus slaughtered the hybrids. I’d love to find out more about her background, preferably in flashbacks. I like that Rebekah’s becoming more protective of Hayley, not just the baby. I hope we find out the wolf’s identity soon. My money is on a relative of Hayley. (I previously thought it may have been Tyler, but I doubt it now that he’s back on “The Vampire Diaries”.)
Most tragic moment: Klaus erases Cami’s memory of what she found out about her brother. It was pretty awful how he kept playing with her mind throughout the episode, but this was the worst. However, the more Cami gets compelled, the more convinced I am that she’ll become a vampire soon.

Biggest bitch moment: Agnes double-crosses Hayley. Big mistake. She might as well start shopping for a  tombstone, there’s no way the Mikaelsons are going to let this slide.

Most surprising character: They did it. They made me like Davina. She had been getting on my nerves these past episodes, but this week I actually felt for her. I loved her scenes with Tim. It showed that even though she’s a very powerful witch, she’s also still a teenager. She wants the same things normal teenagers do: love and freedom. It broke my heart that she had to give up Tim, I hope we haven’t seen the last of them together.
Most surprising moment: Hayley’s baby healed her. I thought the baby would only have the werewolf traits, although it seems now the baby will also be part vampire. I wonder what this means for her aging process.

Most badass moment: Davina takes on Klaus. It takes a lot of guts to do that. She managed to hold her own for a while. I’m glad she didn’t back down even when he had Tim. However I hate that Klaus made her think she did that to Tim, while he was the one who threw him off the balcony.

Best friendship moment: As much as their relationship confuses me, I love the bond between Marcel and Davina. I can’t decide whether I see their relationship as father/daughter or big brother/little sister. I love how protective he gets over her, and not just because she’s his weapon against the witches. I think he genuinely cares for her and I hope to see more scenes between the two.
Best quotes: Hayley: “Can we go home now? I’d really like to sleep for a few days.”
Father Kieran: “You’re standing on blood.” Rebekah: “I’m not squeamish.”
Rebekah: “If I had a dollar for every mess my family’s gotten me into.”

Even though the pace was a little slower, “Girl in New Orleans” was still a great episode. Next week it seems we’ll be getting more into Davina’s past, and of course more Elijah. Check in again next week for my review and tell me what you thought of the episode.

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.
