Storyline

Damon, Alaric and Elena reach a hidden cage in the secret tunnel beneath the Lockwood mansion. Alaric studies the runes and primitive pictures, which indicate it was the home of an ancient Viking family, who interacted with the first werewolf, vampire and witch. They confront Rebekah, who is shocked to tie it up with her memories of their youth, when their father Mikael, now the only hunter they truly dread, bullied his sons, especially Niklaus, leading in interaction with the originally friendly werewolf neighbors to family drama and the origin of vampires. Adter taunting Stefano, Damon releases him from Lexie's 'aversion therapy' and take shim along to seek Mikael's help. Alaric and Elena work out that Rekebah's memories don't take account of a last, crucial cruel twist. Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

When Alaric is showing Elena the runic names in the cave under the Lockwood property, he points his flashlight at the names as he reads but when reading Elijah's name he is actually pointing at the name Mikael. So in the end they ended up showing Mikael's name twice. See more »

Quotes

Rebekah: He's a vampire. We're a predatory species. We don't have time to care about humans and their silly, little lives.

The Original Witch and the Truth about the Family's Curse
16 November 2013 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Alaric, Elena and Damon explore the tunnel under the Lockwood real estate and Alaric shows ancient carved hieroglyphs telling stories in runic of werewolves and the names of Niklaus, Elijah, Rebekah and Mikael. Alaric takes pictures and tries to decipher what is written. Elena seeks out Rebekah and asks about Mikael, who is in a cemetery in Charlotte. Rebekah invites Elena to meet her and tells the story of her family, the truth about the curse and the surprising identity of the Original Witch. Damon releases Stephan and they go to Mystic Grill to have fun; out of the blue, Mikael joins to them asking where Klaus is.

"Ordinary People" tells the story of the Original Family, the Original Witch and the truth about the curse and Mikael's hatred with Klaus. Nina Dobrev keeps the same inexpressive face, as usual, no matter she is happy, sad, in love, jealous, grieving or whatever. My vote is seven.
