This week's episode of The Originals comes out swinging, and quite a bit comes to light. The title "Girl in New Orleans" refers to Davina, that crazy cooped-up witch Marcel's been keeping trapped in an attic. He lets her out for a while this week to survey one of New Orleans' many musical events, where she runs into a boy she used to have a crush on — you know, back when she was a normal girl who went to school and such. Meanwhile, Hayley goes to the special clinic where you go to get your werewolf-vampire baby checked out and gets more than she bargained for.
This episode is also a biggie because we get let in on one of the season's most intriguing mysteries. Apparently, there was a big massacre at the local church, but what would compel a young priest-in-training to kill all his seminary peers, and what does it have to do with the vampire scene? Let's talk about this, with a little help from our friends from The Vampire Diaries.
When Cami Suggests Klaus See a Therapist
Klaus asks Cami if she thinks he's evil, and she responds by saying what we're all thinking: "I think you have unstable personal relationships, stress-related paranoia, chronic fear of abandonment." Harsh but true. Still, would we want Klaus any other way? Of course not! It's his deeply rooted psychotic issues that make him the lovable vampire he is.
When Davina Makes Marcel's Blood Boil
The idea that she can make someone's blood boil is revolting, but wouldn't that mean instant death? And do vampires even feel that sort of stuff? I'm not so sure about this power.
When Hayley Heads in to See the "Doctor"
This is the part in the horror movie where I scream at the screen, "TURN AROUND, WOMAN!" The unfortunate truth is that Hayley can't trust anyone. Elijah is the only Original with a real pure heart, and he's locked up with a stake through his heart. She can count on Rebekah to protect her for now, but if I were her, I wouldn't leave the house.
