The Originals - Phantomesque - Review

This week, Freya and Hayley went into the pendant in order to restore Elijah’s mind so that he can be resurrected. They succeed but it has some consequences for Hayley’s relationship with Elijah. Rebekah and Klaus argued with Marcel over a weapon that could both save Sofya and kill the Originals. Rebekah lets Marcel keep it. Kol tries to make a deal with the witches but they refuse. The Hollow resurrects Davina in order to control Kol. 

Favorite character: I’ve missed Rebekah. Who would’ve thought that when we met the Original family on Vampire Diaries, that Rebekah would turn out to be the sensible one. She spent the entire episode trying to keep the peace. Without her, Marcel and Klaus’ peace would have ended this week. We never saw her response to Freya’s suggestion of sacrificing Marcel. I don’t doubt that when it comes to that, she’ll try to find another way. As long as it doesn’t include sacrificing herself. I have to admit that Claire suddenly being back again has me a bit worried that it’s only to say goodbye to the character. 

A little underwhelming: Am I the only one who was a bit disappointed by what was behind the red door? We’ve already seen the Original family kill people more times than we can count, this wasn’t all that much different. I actually expected Hayley to come upon the memory of Elijah killing Tatia. Now that would’ve been more shocking, to see him kill someone he was close to. But the actual slaughter wasn’t that different from what we’ve seen before. I guess perhaps it was more about his mindset during this flashback than the act. 

Awkward: Which brings me to my next point. Seeing Elijah like this clearly affected Hayley. Her first instinct was to protectively strengthen her grip on Hope. Elijah has been going darker and darker for a while but Hayley has always supported him. But everyone has their limits. This is either going to be the turning point for Elijah or it’ll just push him deeper into the darkness. 

Called it! I knew we’d see Davina again before the end of the season. There was no point in involving Davina in the Hollow storyline for only one episode. I have to admit, this is a pretty genius move from the Hollow. After the events that lead to Davina’s death, Kol is not about to let her slip through his fingers again. He still carries the guilt of being the one that killed her. He’ll do whatever it takes to keep her alive. The question is, when he’s faced with the choice between his family and Davina, who will he choose? 

Innocence has left the building: Remember how I said I wanted Hope’s innocence to stay intact for as long as possible? I think that ship has officially sailed. She saw her mother’s life in danger, heard her screams and then saw her uncle covered in blood. Her reaction to Elijah broke my heart. Poor kid is going to have nightmares for weeks. Also, what was with Freya putting Hope in the locket? Hayley and Klaus would’ve been furious. I’m guessing the events of this week will heavily impact the decision to send Hope away to Alaric’s school. 
Needs his own storyline: I’m sick of only seeing Josh as Marcel’s sidekick. What happened to his boyfriend who we only saw in this season’s second episode. He’s been on the show as long as anyone else has, yet hasn’t had a single storyline of his own. He’s capable of being more than just a sidekick with awesome one-liners. 

Best quotes: Kol: “Lethal thorns, resurrected witches… what could possibly go wrong?” 
Rebekah: “That’s a peculiar place for a nap.” 
Rebekah: “Children, please use your words.” 

That’s it for this week. Check in again next week for an all-new review and let me know in the comments what you thought of this week’s episode. 

Please be respectful in the comments, any unnecessary rudeness isn't welcome.

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.
