The Originals - Review of Episode 1.09 - Reigning Pain in New Orleans

Well, that’s it for the first half of the season. The war between Klaus and Marcel seemed to have cooled down, as they find a new common enemy: the humans. But before that he sends his new army out wolf hunting, something that does not sit well with Hayley. Elijah and Rebekah stop the vampires and finds the descendants of Klaus’ biological father. Cami proves she’s one smart cookie, finding loopholes in Klaus’ compulsion, which is later unfortunately reversed when Klaus re-compels her. Davina finds out Marcel has been lying to her and it seems she may (or may not, can’t really tell) have made a new friend in Hayley. The episode ended with The Original family somewhat reconciled, Marcel and Klaus back as a best buds, Hayley and Klaus at odds and Cami getting her head scrambled (again), this time by Davina.

Best witch moment: Since there was only one witch in this episode, (seriously, did Sophie die or something?), Davina un-compelling Cami was my favorite witch moment. I wonder how Davina plans to use Cami, why she was even at her apartment in the first place. I felt kinda bad for Cami, that looked like it hurt. At this rate Cami will end up in the nuthouse before the end of the season.
Best badass moment: Klaus just can’t help but piss off the women on this show. I loved the scene where Hayley threatens him. Him going after her family was a low blow, may even have had something to do with her choosing to believe Elijah over him a few episodes ago. What did surprise me was Klaus’ inability to answer Hayley’s question when she asked what will happen to her after the baby’s born. I can’t believe he’d actually kill her. But I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

Best fight scene: Still not sure if it qualifies as a fight scene as there was little fighting back, but Klaus and Marcel killing the human faction was just glorious to watch. I’m surprised the humans actually thought they’d get away with it, especially after they saw how quickly Klaus gets offended. Father Kieran seems to be the only one who had some sense left, which earned him his freedom. Doesn’t hurt that he’s Cami’s uncle. Boy, that guy is in way over his head.

Best “Aaw” moment: My heart skipped a beat when Josh gave Davina the violin. Not sure if she’s told him the story but he obviously knew it was important to her. These two are so underrated and deserve way more scenes. With all the animosity on this show, it’s important to also showcase the friendships.

Best chemistry moment: Aah, Elijah and Hayley again of course. I’m not planning to start a ship war here, as I ship her with both Original brothers. But that doesn’t take away from the fact that I love the balcony scene. From the backdrop to the actual sparks I saw flying out of my computer screen.  I’m glad there was no kiss yet, would in my opinion have been too soon. I think the main two reason for Elijah holding back that Hayley is carrying his brother’s child (that would be awkward in any situation) and that, as we saw last week, the people he cares for have a way  of ending up dead or hurt. On Hayley side it’s probably the fact that he’s one of her few allies and she doesn’t want to jeopardize that. And of course also the “carrying his brother’s baby” factor. But I think now that they both know there’s something there on both ends, they can start to work through those issues. I mean, even Rebekah saw it.
Biggest “Oh no you didn’t” moment: Marcel chooses Klaus over Rebekah AGAIN. I get how much Klaus meant to him, but after everything that’s been going on these past weeks I can’t see how he’d choose him over the woman he claims to love. Rebekah once again gets screwed over. I doubt he’ll get a third chance. I am curious what the big secret between the two is though.

Best entrance: It was a small moment, but Rebekah’s entrance when she and Elijah came to get Hayley is exactly the reason why I love her so much. The perfect combination between badass and sass.

Favorite moment: Again, a fairly non-important scene, but for the one-liners alone, I went with the scene of Hayley, Davina and Josh what I presumed was a garage. They are all getting screwed over by Klaus and Marcel and I hope they can become allies. From what I can see in the promo, my wish might come true.

“I wish this would have happened” moment: Rebekah vs. Diego. He just kept getting in her way, and not for the first time this season. I would’ve loved to see her kick his ass. Or as Rebekah put it “rearrange that pretty face of his.”
Best quotes: Klaus: “However, I understand that some of you are concerned by this vicious rumor that I intend to use the blood of our child to create hybrids. I assure you, I do not.” Hayley: “Father of the year.”
Davina: “Are you ok?” Josh: “Yeah. Yeah. … No not really. I mean, I totally led Klaus into a trap that was like the most epic failure of all time. So yeah, I’m kind of crapping my pants right now, figuratively… so far.
Elijah: “I’m not trying to impress the girl.” Rebekah: “I should bloody hope you are. Why else are we out here?”
Davina: “You’re Hayley. Klaus’ wife.” Hayley: “Ew, no. Never.”
Rebekah: “May do wonders for the stick that’s lodged up your enduringly stoic ass if you did.”
Hayley: “And let’s not forget Josh. Newbie vampire, way out of his element. Voted most likely to die next.” Josh: “Oh, fantastic.”

The Originals is back January 14th. Until then I wish you all happy holidays. See you next year.

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.
