The Originals - Review of Episode 1.07 - Bloodletting

This week’s episode shattered the closeness between the Original siblings. Last week they were a united front, now they’re completely divided. “Bloodletting” brought Tyler to New Orleans. Part of his revenge plan included kidnapping Hayley, which eventually led to an explosive confrontation between him and Klaus. Meanwhile Marcel manages to convince Rebekah to join his side. As much as I want to see the Originals as a united front, considering all the things Klaus has done to her over the years, I don’t blame her for wanting it to end. Maybe in the end this will finally be a wake-up call for Klaus, and he’ll realize that his family won’t keep forgiving him. Davina finds a friend in Josh, who is now uncompelled and on Team Marcel. A kidnapped Hayley finds herself in the bayou, where she not only finds out that her baby can sire hybrids, but she also find a clue to her birthparents. Klaus came off somewhat jealous of Elijah this week. As a result of once again being compared to ‘the noble Elijah’ and being accused of wanting to use the baby to create an army, he bites Elijah and leaves both him and Hayley in the bayou. Klaus’ reaction to the accusation proved to me that he didn’t know about the baby’s power, and I did feel bad for him but there were better ways to handle it.

Most badass moment: Before Marcel managed to talk her down, Rebekah kicked his ass. I love badass Rebekah. She’s been kind of underused lately when it comes to protecting Hayley, so I hope we get to see her in action very soon.
Most annoying character: What have the writers done to Tyler? First they barely showed him since last season’s winter break. And now that he’s finally back, they’ve turned him into a revenge obsessed, suicidal idiot. Here’s the thing, I get that he’s mad at Hayley for getting the hybrids killed and at Klaus for everything he’s done to him. However, I can’t believe that the same guy who broke all the bones in his body a hundred times, the guy who came back to Mystic Falls, knowing Klaus would kill him if he was spotted, just to give Caroline the prom night she dreamed off, would just leave her like that. He told her that he had to make Klaus pay, yet his plan seemed like a suicide mission to me. He wouldn’t have been able to kill him without the white oak stake (who knows where that thing is) and even if he did, he would die too because it was Klaus’ blood that sired him. Last year he wanted nothing more than a future with Caroline, even after his mother’s death As far as we know, nothing changed during the summer, yet the character seems to have done a complete one-eighty. I don’t blame Tyler, I blame the writers.

Best chemistry moment: I know that Josh is gay, but I absolutely adored his scenes with Davina. They may not have a lot in common, but I can see these becoming best friends in no time. They’ve both been thrown into these crazy situations and are trying to make the best of it. For a newbie vampire, Josh seems to be handling his new reality pretty well.
Favorite character: Every week I fall in more and more in love with Hayley. From the way she cursed out Tyler, to her actually managing to escape. Her maternal instincts seem to have really kicked in this week. I’d like to request a scene where she kicks Tyler’s ass, please.

Most underrated moment: Fight night! I wish we would get to see more of this side of New Orleans. Loved the fight scene. This was probably also the last united Klaus and Elijah moment we’ll be getting for a while. Marcel manages to handle himself well in front of the Original brothers, but I would love to see him actually take both of them on.

Favorite moment: Elijah makes it to Hayley before Tyler does. It was a small scene but still my favorite of the episode. The hug was really sweet. I have a feeling the sexual tension that has been floating around in the air will be discussed soon, especially when Elijah starts to hallucinate thanks to the werewolf bite.
Best ‘Oh Shit!’ moment: Tyler telling Marcel about the baby will definitely not be good. Like Hayley didn’t have enough to worry about with the witches, now she’ll have to deal with Marcel and his army. Like I said, not good!

Best quotes: Hayley: “You will not believe the crap day I’m having.”
Josh: “Oh no, you’re the super witch.”
Hayley: “Let me go, you backstabbing, half-breed, piece of sh..”

Bad news guys, The Originals won’t be back until November 26th. But let this cheer you up, it got a full season pick up. So check back in 2 weeks for an all new review. And share your opinions of “Bloodletting” in the comments.

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.
