Did You Know?


Klaus Mikaelson: Seems rather uncivilized to laugh and dance around the body of a loved one.
Elijah Mikaelson: [disdainfully] Yes, far better to practice your process of grief, Niklaus. Denial, rage, and hoarding coffins in basements.

Great "thread-tying" episode (SPOILERS!)
30 April 2014 | by (Colorado,USA) – See all my reviews

I never really like episodes of any series that introduce new story-lines and I've not especially liked the last couple of episodes here. This is the best episode since Storyville (episode 16) and ties together newly introduced story-lines. We were shown sides of characters we had not previously seen which added depth to everyone. I'm very glad to see that the writers appear to have stepped back from a love-triangle story line. And... Michael is possibly coming back! He had a few scenes which were great. There was an excellent flashback of Klaus and Marcel which gave the audience both insight into their complex relationship and a glimpse of conflict yet ahead. All the factions, including the fledgling witches, are causing trouble for The Original siblings and their inner circle.
