The Originals - Review of Episode 1.21 - The Battle of New Orleans

This week’s episode was full of action. The war is on. Last week I said I thought Francesca was too confidant for a human. I was right, turns out she and her family are werewolves. Guerra werewolves no less. Now I’m not sure if they are different kinds of werewolves or not but I hope we delve into that a little more before the Originals kill them all. Genevieve double crosses Klaus, linking him to the werewolves and thus weakening him. This prevents him from saving Josh, who he bit earlier in the episode. Davina is tempted to bring back Mikael, who promises to help her. At the end of the episode, the witches kidnap Hayley and try to take her baby. 

Smartest character: Cami actually figured the whole Guerra werewolf thing out before anyone else did. Unfortunately people don’t seem to answer their phones during a war, something I think they’ll reconsider now. I wish the other characters on the show would appreciate her more, they seem to think she can’t handle any of it because she’s human. While in fact, she’s probably the smartest person on this show. 

“Oh no, you did not just do that” moment: You all probably know how protective I am about Josh (and how mad I get when he’s not in the episode). Klaus crossed the line here. Poor Josh is always in the crosshairs. Davina better find a way to save him, because we all know how much the writers love to kill off characters. 
Worst move: I believe I’ve said this before: I don’t get Marcel. He know full well that going up against the Original siblings won’t end will for his people. Had it not been for the werewolf intervention, they would have all been dead, including Marcel. 

Most hateful character: Ah Francesca, I already disliked her before this episode. Those feeling doubled this week. Not only did I totally not see the werewolf reveal coming, she attacked my favorites. And turns out she’s also responsible for the bayou bombing. Because one reason to hate her just wasn’t enough, right? 

Best musical moment: As a youtube vidder, I’ve had my eye on the “We Want War” song since the beginning of the season. I jumped up with both excitement and disappointment when I heard it on the show. Excitement because the song really is perfect, disappointment because now everyone will be using it in their videos. 

Favorite scene: I loved the parallel between Hayley’s screams and Klaus’. Like he knew exactly what was happening. But seriously, where is that werewolf strength when you need it. If someone was trying to take my baby, I’d kick and punch a lot more. On a side-note. This would be the perfect moment for Rebekah to walk in and save the day, just saying. 
Prediction for the finale: So since there’s only one episode left this season, I thought I’d make some predictions. I think Genevieve will switch sides. In the last scene, I could see how she did not want to go through with it. I think she’s going to save the baby, but end up getting killed anyway. Monique and Oliver will die, no doubt about it. I think Francesca might make it through the finale, mainly because I think we haven’t heard enough about the Guerra werewolves. The baby will live, she better. And in true “Vampire Diaries” fashion, there will be a cliffhanger. 

Favorite quotes
Elijah: “Gentlemen, shall we?” 
Hayley: “You will not take my baby. I will kill all of you.” 

I noticed my review wasn’t as big as usual, probably because I’m writing this in a hurry. I want to do a big one for the finale so the next one may not be up until mid-next week. My exams are coming up so I’ll write when I can. Are you guys ready for the finale? I sure am.

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.
