One of the best penultimate episodes!!
10 May 2014 | by (Rawalpindi, Pakistan) – See all my reviews

Without doubt, this HAS to be one of the best penultimate episodes of a season in recent past. I mean, right from the start where Marcel takes hold of the two wolves, till the end where Hayley, in a miserable state, gets surrounded by witches, this episode drops bomb after bomb (well, literally too, courtesy Merceleus). The acting was top notch here, as it most often is in this series. But hats off to Francesca, I mean, she delivers just the right amount of rage and threat (and later on, the big bad twist) to make us understand that she can't be taken lightly.. At all costs.

I was never fond of the way Klaus treated Genevieve, toying with her and playing with her feelings, so it was nice to see her getting a satisfying revenge.

And boy, Francesca turning out to be a surviving Guerrero werewolf? Wow, just wow. She was leading the human faction without ever being a human! Talk about deceiving your counterparts!

Marcel's attack on the house was always going to be a treat to watch, considering Elijah were to take the spotlight. But it would have been predictable nonetheless. So what do the writers do? They throw in an unexpected, awesome-ly horrifying wolf attack in the middle, thanks to a little hidden pact between Genevieve and Francesca.

Let's not forget that, between all this, Mikael is getting closer and closer to returning in actuality. I just wish he gets a longer period to say.

And what about that last scene where Klaus is limping and screaming helplessly? It was an agonizing yet thought provoking situation. Power and Authority are two different things, perhaps this was the best portrayal?

With the baby about to come, three of the cast members bitten, and the threat of Mikael looming, the wait for the finale is outstandingly torturous.

All in all, a job well done, writers!!
