Camille O'Connell: When I first got into town, you hand me one of those. I had taken a shift from another girl. If not for that, could've been someone else standing here right now instead of me.
Klaus Mikaelson: You know, I prefer to see it the other way. if it wasn't that night, this bar, that 100 dollar bill, it would have been Jackson Square staring at a painting, or Frenchman Street, listening to jazz. I would've found you. Thank you... for the drink.

The Originals never fail to impress!
17 May 2015 | by faiqaakmalSee all my reviews

The show itself is absolutely phenomenal and far better than The Vampire diaries. It started out with a great plot and has till now stuck with it. The originals family dramas never seem to end and with dahlia's entry in the show made it even more fierce and intense. I am completely amazed the way Klaus convinced everyone and carried out his plan but it sure does come with a price with his sibling yet again angered and disgusted by him. Hayley on the other side will now turn to human only once a month but how long this is going to continue ? Though I am still not sure whether Freya is trustworthy or not but time will surely tell. Over all they wrapped the show amazingly.
