XXPreviously on The Originals, Mikael ruined opera night in a pretty spectacular way, sibling problems were at an all-time high among the Mikaelsons and Hayley proved she can really rock a shotgun. Never a dull moment in New Orleans!


Just as one chapter seemed to come to an abrupt end, another began with a gasp. Le Grand Guignol was a breakneck hour filled with glittering and bloody flashbacks, cracking good dialogue, an abundance of excellent character flourishes, and a penultimate scene that was more unsettling than a sanatorium full of blood-coughing horrors. Finally we have the full picture of what went down the night the Original siblings fled New Orleans and, like the opera that frames Mikael’s destruction, it’s grand drama.

By Heather Vee, Vampire-Diaries.Net

As good as The Originals has been about spinning engaging yarns from an originally inert premise, this new Mikael storyline has not been very well delivered! The first problem was informing us up front that Rebekah and Marcel had summoned him. Why were we supposed to care? What was so bad about Mikael? Then we spent an entire episode where the tension was supposed to come from Klaus learning a fact we already knew. We should’ve learned who summoned Klaus right alongside Klaus. But even if we had, why would it have been shocking other than The Originals simply telling us it would be? The Originals should’ve first shown us Mikael’s reign of terror AND THEN revealed that Rebekah had been the one to send for him. Plus, we already know the ultimate punchline of this story: Mikael gets staked in Mystic Falls sometime in the 2010s like it’s no big deal. Our knowledge of this kiiiinda undercuts the tension a lot. See, this is why I don’t like prequels: We usually know how they end.

XXPreviously on The Vampire Diaries, beheadings! Canoodling! Ex drama! Very poor treatment of Stefan’s car! Just business as usual in Mystic Falls. Just a few more hours until Gone Girl (EP515), so here’s your last chance to revisit No Exit before the new episode airs.


Nothing like being forced to spend time in an enclosed space with someone to lead to canoodling! Whether orchestrated or enforced, No Exit saw the TVD gang in some delightfully tricky situations. And as with most trouble in the lives of the Salvatore brothers for the past 150 odd years, all roads led back to Katherine Pierce.
Vampire Diaries In Review: No Exit (EP514) – Be Cool
By Crissy Calhoun, Vampire-Diaries.Net

This week, both The Vampire Diaries and The Originals returned from their Olympics-imposed hiatuses with episodes that revolved around characters finding out a big secret the audience already knew. In both cases, this path to realization basically creates a filler episode, a way to move the story to the place it needs to be for the inevitable big confrontation in the future, but the difference was all in the execution.
The Vampire Diaries: “No Exit”
By Carrie Raisler, A.V. Club

This season of The Vampire Diaries has seemed, well, all over the place. I still cannot believe how much time the show wasted on such a truly terrible villain like Silas, nor how underdeveloped the Augustine stuff has been so far. But the biggest mistake this season has made was its attempt to be a throwback to Season 1 while also throwing all the old character dynamics in a blender. Those fundamental romances and friendships everyone’s always so worked up about? I think I miss them too.

XXPreviously on The Originals, the witches finally came up with a spell that met with universal audience approval. Mikaelson family drama reached an all time high and Rebekah demonstrated one of the nastiest ways to rid oneself of inconvenient people that this show has ever come up with…which, honestly, is pretty impressive. Here are your episode recaps and twitter reactions for Long Way Back From Hell (EP114), enjoy!


After four episodes of non-stop witch offense, Long Way Back from Hell was an hour full of decayed, Silent Hill-esque visuals, beautifully lit flashbacks, a whole lot of witchsplaining, and an unfortunate lack of tension. With Rebekah and Marcel’s secret revealed to the audience two episodes ago, Hell‘s driving storyline suffered from tipping that hand and not allowing us to discover the bombshell, its intricacies, and the collateral damage alongside Klaus. As a result, the episode meandered until its last five minutes, and even then the final “shocker” didn’t quite land in the “finally, but ohgodNO” way it could have.
The Originals In Review: Long Way Back from Hell (EP114) – A Wholly Ineffective Endeavor
By Heather Vee, Vampire-Diaries.Net

The Originals‘ taking a few weeks off was a prime example of absence making the heart grow fonder, because this week’s episode was nowhere near as good as the three insta-classics that preceded it yet I did NOT care. I still had a heart bursting with love for these characters and their terrible problems and I just felt so happy to be watching it again. You know? Needed it.
The Originals “Long Way Back from Hell” Review: Nursing Grudges
By Price Peterson,

Relying on flashback episodes can be a tricky thing. Obviously it’s worked fairly well for The Vampire Diaries, but The Originals, at least so far, doesn’t have a good track record with them. Flashbacks incorporated into regular episodes, great, but full episodes dedicated to revelations from the past feel irrelevant so far. That’s especially true in tonight’s “Long Way Back From Hell,” an episode that does little but build to a revelation that’s no longer revelatory.

Previously On The Vampire Diaries: Total Eclipse Of The Heart (EP513)Previously on The Vampire Diaries… Good god, it’s been forever, hasn’t it? A total eclipse of our hearts for three weeks. But it’s okay, lovely viewers: TVD is back, finally, and before we move on to new shenanigans, let us reflect on the weird, snarky, bloody glory of Total Eclipse of the Heart (EP513).


Both Caroline and Damon want to make a clean, no-looking-back, burn-the-bridges breaks from their past relationships. Caroline’s method — shredding photos and a fan-favorite horse drawing — is a little less dark than Damon’s, which involves murder, more murder, and attempted murder on a little brother who’s seen way more than his fair share of being murdered.
Vampire Diaries In Review: Total Eclipse of the Heart (EP513) – Never Be Wrong Together
By Crissy Calhoun, Vampire-Diaries.Net

Guys, “Total Eclipse of the Heart” was a very existential episode! In a general sense it was also very retro: Tons of Season 1 feels all over the place, from the diary intro (again with the diary intro!), but especially to the very Season 1-seeming Damon. The only thing that was missing was the white pancake makeup, but other than that, this was old-school Damon for sure. (Still patiently waiting for another Depeche Mode underwear dance party scene.)

By Price Peterson,

This is why you always kill the bad guy. The last few episodes have been blissfully Dr. Maxfield-free. But it was never a question of if he would come back, but when; the last vision of Elena and Stefan leaving him knocked out on the floor, but not finishing the job, ensuring his return to cause more problems. It’s just The Vampire Diaries’ way.

XXThe Originals is back tonight and everyone wants to talk to Joseph Morgan. The actor told E!News that the show will be entering new territory soon.

“The next three episodes are all kind of part of the same story and trying to resolve the issue of this secret that was kept by Marcel and Rebekah from me, from Klaus,” Morgan previews. “I felt like they’re the best episodes we’ve done. We’re just really finding our tone now and it’s becoming a little more of a frightening show I think, which is good, because these are frightening creatures.”


The Hollywood Reporter also spoke with Joseph and he offered some insight into the Original siblings complicated relationship.

“They’re three adults in a world of children,” he says of Klaus, Rebekah and Elijah’s outlook. “They are absolutely desperately in love with each other and utterly bored of each other. They hate each other but love each other at the same time. Nobody will be able to understand them as much as they understand each other, so I think it’s an incredibly conflicted relationship that’s very needy and dysfunctional.”

XX Previously on The Originals…well, actually, you all probably know exactly what went down previously on The Originals because it’s been ten thousand years since we’ve had a new episode. Whether you’ve been watching and rewatching or just hiding under a blanket waiting for the hiatus to end, you’ve almost made it. Hang on just a little longer, guys! Things are getting pretty wild down in New Orleans, so pass the time before tomorrow night’s new episode by giving Crescent City (EP113) one more hug.

As much as we love our Original family and their myriad of dysfunctions, we are long past due for seeing tangible consequences for a millenium’s worth of dominance and scheming. In the immediate picture, we have the fall-out from the Originals’ initial arrival in and rule of New Orleans; in the bigger, long-term picture, this is the family from which all vampires on earth originated. The Originals have been a force unchecked, disciplined only by a dagger and a brother’s whims, and as much as we root for them, the anvil crashing down right now feels earned, though it remains to be seen whether the severity will be justified.

By Heather Vee, Vampire-Diaries.Net

Ladies and gentlemen, this is what we in the business call A HOT STREAK. (What is a hot streak?) Three absolutely fantastic episodes in a row, all of them with huge stakes and risky storytelling and the undeniable feeling that we’re in the hands of experts.

The Originals introduced an entirely new line of characters during “Crescent City” as Hayley finally got to meet her family. And her betrothed werewolf-protector, Jackson. Elsewhere, the risen witches of New Orleans made life difficult for Elijah and his siblings.

XXCaroline and Tyler’s relationship is the talk of the town lately, as is her “moment in the woods” with Klaus (ten thousand bonus points to anyone who gets that showtune reference).

Fans have a lot of questions about Caroline’s love life in general, and TV Guide asks a lot of them for us. Candice answers questions about Klaus, Stefan and whether or not she thinks Tyler and Caroline’s relationship can be salvaged. Is even a friendship possible? Candice replies:

What about just as friends?
Caroline needs this idea of perfection and for no one to be mad at her and for everyone to be happy at all times, so we’ll see a lot of great scenes coming up between Caroline and Tyler with her struggling to find a friendship, but also release some of the guilt she’s been holding onto because she knows she made a mistake. The one thing to remember is that they’re 19 and 20. If Caroline was my age it’s like, you know better. At 19 and 20 and it’s your first boyfriend and you’re high on hormones and haven’t fallen down a lot in relationships, it’s an opportunity to learn a lesson, just the really hard way. That’s how I looked at Caroline’s choice of being with Klaus and that’s why I don’t necessarily see her and Tyler reconciling their relationship, but I think there’s possibility for them to be friends.

XXPreviously on The Vampire Diaries, the show snatched our hearts yet again with doppelganger hijinks, a welcome home party, and the good old “body in the road” trick. Refresh your memory of everything that went down in The Devil Inside (EP512) before tonight’s new episode!


In the immortal words of INXS, Every single one of us, the devil inside. And nowhere is that more true than in Mystic Falls. The Devil Inside was another top-notch episode, in my opinion, with the Katherine-bodyjacking-Elena plotline taking its next logical, and for some disastrous, steps.
Vampire Diaries In Review: The Devil Inside (EP512) – It’s Done
By Crissy Calhoun, Vampire-Diaries.Net

They say that phone numbers are seven digits because studies showed that the human brain can only remember seven things at a time. That is definitely true for me, but usually anywhere between 4 to 5 of the things I remember are candy-related. I occasionally remember items from the menu at Popeye’s. But that only leaves one to two things that I can fit in my brain at any given time, so that means I forget A LOT of things. I especially have a goldfish memory when it comes to The Vampire Diaries, which I think we can all agree has ten episodes too many in each season. 22 episodes just seems like A LOT of episodes! It is crazy that ANY shows try to tell a 22-hour story anymore, let alone one like this, a complicated serial that borders on cable-level quality.

By Price Peterson,

This. This is The Vampire Diaries firing on all cylinders.

Last week’s 100th episode was a lot of fun, but it showed obvious strain in an attempt to properly commemorate the momentous occasion while still telling a compelling TVD story. “The Devil Inside,” free from these shackles, practically explodes onto the screen with unfettered glee and doesn’t let up until the very end. It’s a good time, but more importantly it’s a good story told well, and that’s something that has been sorely missing for a lot of this season.
