We’re all slogging (or shivering, or burning, depending on where you live) our way through the winter hiatus, but E!Online is lending us a helping hand today. These new promo pics from The Originals are pretty terrific, and we’re not just saying that because of the waistcoat. Honest.

Hurry up, January 14th!

XXPreviously on The Vampire Diaries, Whitmore College just got a whole lot creepier. Right? There’s only one more episode to go until the dreaded winter hiatus, so here are some recaps and reactions to cuddle as we consider the long, empty Thursdays to come.

EPISODE RECAPS:

Note: Crissy Calhoun’s review will be forthcoming soon, at which point we’ll add it in to this post. Sorry for the delay!

The biggest problem with reviewing television on an episodic basis, especially in a twisty, plot-heavy show like The Vampire Diaries, is that it’s very likely everything I’m about to complain about will be completely resolved in the next episode. If these issues are resolved, that won’t make “The Cell” a better episode of television—this one is a dud, no matter what happens in the midseason finale next week—but it will make most of the maddening, incomprehensible character moments in “The Cell” much less horrifying.
By Carrie Raisler, The A.V. Club

This week’s episode “The Cell” was very terrific so long as you could accept at least three ludicrous things as no big deal.

XXRemember back in season four, when Nina Dobrev only had to play two characters at a time? From our lofty season 5 vantage point, filming an Elena vs. Katherine fight scene might not seem like as big a deal, but it’s still pretty complicated filming. Entertainment Weekly did separate interviews with Nina and John Copeman (stunt coordinator) to get their individual takes on the fight scene.

JOHN COPEMAN: The first thing I did was read the script and really block the fight, try to make some character beats. You don’t want to make it all big punches, big throws. At least if there’s a good line, accent that with a throw or a punch so it feels more character driven than just, “Hey let’s do a neat stunt.” And then I thought about what Nina can do, because Nina is stupidly flexible. So knowing that she could kick really high, we thought we would have Katherine, who’s wearing like spike boots, throw a side kick into her throat after she throws Elena against the lockers, pin her there, and then she’s delivering a line. And then Elena delivers a line back and kind of trips her, runs over and rips the locker off. So we were thinking about, “What can Nina do?”

NINA DOBREV: I like to push the envelope. They don’t like to let me do much at all. If it was up to them, they wouldn’t let me do any of it. If I was a stunt performer on our show, I would probably be a little frustrated because their whole job is to come to set and get to do the big cool crazy fun stuff, and I’ll usually ask John if I can do something. If they say no, I’ll kind of do it anyway, and then apologize later and be like, “Oops I forgot that I wasn’t supposed to do that!” [Laughs] It’s always easier to ask for forgiveness than for permission. They didn’t let me hit the glass, I know that for sure. But I definitely hit the locker. I try to do as much as I can if they let me.

XXPreviously on The Vampire Diaries, Bonnie was suffering some ghostly interference to her love life while Damon showed us that torture can be an awful lot of fun if you approach it with the right attitude. Elsewhere on campus, there were a lot of bad decisions being made, so basically it was business as usual for college freshmen. Except for the biting and murder, anyway. Tonight we tune in for The Cell, (EP509), so now is your chance to brush up on Dead Man on Campus (EP508).

EPISODE RECAPS:

Was that awesome? Or was that awesome? Besides the fact that registering for classes never looked so fun, Dead Man on Campus shifted up the season’s focus by highlighting the friendships that get this gang through the worst traumas they suffer and the most morally shaky decisions they make. I know everyone would rather be getting drunk on bourbon — or at least the Salvatore brothers would — but let’s revisit that most excellent episode instead.
Vampire Diaries In Review: Dead Man on Campus (EP508) – Never Surrender
By Crissy Calhoun, Vampire-Diaries.Net

I really and deeply enjoyed MOST THINGS about “Dead Man on Campus.” It was one of my favorite episodes of the season! But it wasn’t perfect, for at least one very frustrating reason. Still though, a very good hour of television. Let’s talk about it!

By Price Peterson, TV.com

Damon had a spotlight episode tonight, showcasing the exasperated snark and morally slippery world view that defines his character. Elena tasking Damon to torture Wes to figure out why he turned Jesse into a vampire shouldn’t be this entertaining, but it is—and that’s all because of what this show and Somerhalder have built Damon to be. I should probably be thrilled that this episode ended with Damon suddenly realizing he was similar to Jesse many years ago, a test subject sacrificed at the altar of the yet-unseen Augustine vampire. I can’t be thrilled, however, because the introduction of this information is just so horribly, awkwardly done that it’s almost comic.

XXPreviously on The Originals, Klaus gave us all an object lesson in why the whole world is afraid of him. It was a rough night on everyone, physically and emotionally, as The Originals made it clear once again that this show will not be pulling any punches, ever. Only one more episode before the winter hiatus, so here’s your chance to wring every last drop of awesome out of The River in Reverse (EP108) before moving on to Reigning Pain in New Orleans (EP109) tonight.

EPISODE RECAPS:

Kings rise, kings fall, and new kings rise in their place. In eight episodes, The Originals’ dynamics have transformed so completely that it has rendered every aspect of the story unpredictable. But here’s what remains the same: The war is not over and the battlefield is as gray as it ever was. When the Originals returned to New Orleans, Klaus had one goal: Take what he believed to be rightfully his. In The River in Reverse, he does just that, but holding on to it will be another war entirely.

By Heather Vee, Vampire-Diaries.Net

Guess what? “The River in Reverse” was a very good episode in which Klaus fought off a hundred vampires like it was NBD (not bad, dude). That part, and nine other things were the ten best things about this episode. Let’s talk about them!

XXPreviously on The Originals, absolutely everyone was having a really, really bad day. Except for the audience. We had a fantastic time, especially when Elijah busted out his Klaus impression. We’ve all had plenty of time to watch and rewatch Bloodletting, but here are the reviews and twitter reactions for anyone who wants a refresher before tonight’s new episode.

EPISODE RECAPS:

If you thought Klaus had gone all ponies, prom dresses, and postmodern snowflakes, Bloodletting featured the hybrid hornet nest getting poked from all directions. We’ve become accustomed to Klaus at a low simmer, with the occasional red-hot temper flare, but this episode was a reminder that he is relentless and downright vicious when he’s feeling persecuted and paranoid. Klaus does not like rejection, nor does he take kindly to being confronted with his own failures, and who better illustrates both than Tyler Lockwood?
The Originals In Review: Bloodletting (EP107) – Klaus Mikaelson Can Suck It
By Heather Vee, Vampire-Diaries.Net

The Originals is not some Bourbon Street power tussle, it’s not some bafflingly low-stakes, small-beans conflict between ancient ego-trippers and a rag-tag group of warring witches. What it IS is a borderline disturbing domestic violence saga. No, really. I’ve been harboring a creeping realization these past few weeks, but this week it finally came to the fore: The Originals is not about family loyalty, it’s about family destruction. It’s about how families fall apart; it’s about how siblings and lovers betray one another; it’s about utter self-immolation. Basically, The Originals is about suicide bombings of the heart.

XX Nina Dobrev and Paul Wesley were working overtime in this episode, and poor Ian Somerhalder must be breaking out in a sweat every time he gets a script for fear that he might be next on the double-duty roster. Death and the Maiden deserves a second (and third, and fourth) look just to appreciate our hardworking TVD cast.

EPISODE RECAPS:

For an episode with some heavy storylines and a high death count, Death and the Maiden was a heck of a lot of fun, thanks to bonus Ninas and Pauls, more Katherine and Caroline moments, and the triumphant last moments of two bitter-to-the-end badasses.
Vampire Diaries In Review: Death and the Maiden (EP507) – We Still Hate Each Other, OK?
By Crissy Calhoun, Vampire-Diaries.Net

Look, you need to know something: “Death and the Maiden” was one of the best episodes of the season so far. It was, it really was. First of all, MULTIPLE doppelgangers got stabbed to death. But also it was exciting and heartfelt and the dialogue was noticeably wonderful.

I’m not sure exactly what the show wanted to say about their central love triangle with the Qetsiyah/Silas/Amara story, but I have a sneaking suspicion it was much closer to the latter question above. Everything about this episode feels like the show declaring that it believes in true love. The tricky part is that the show obviously isn’t ready to declare exactly what that means for Elena. Is her true loved fated, with doppelganger Stefan? Or does Elena have the free will to choose another?
