Fun news during tonight’s new episode of The Originals: The CW is bringing us a new recap/interview digital series for the show called Secrets from the Quarter and it is hosted by none other than Steven Krueger, aka Josh, First of His Name, Bestest of Best Friends, He Who Shall Never Die. Executive producers Michael Narducci and Julie Plec sit in on this round to discuss The Big Uneasy. WARNING: Wait until you’ve watched tonight’s episode before watching this, as it super-spoils everything that happens. (And a LOT happens.)

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!

EPISODE RECAPS:

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.
The Originals In Review: Le Grand Guignol (EP115) – Rip My Heart Out
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, 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!

What’s one word to describe the scene where Klaus took out a legion of vampires before Rebekah and Marcel called an end to the bloodbath?
Epic. Epic is the word for that scene. We’re still reeling from how amazing it was.

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.

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?

XX Previously on The Vampire Diaries a new partnership was born, and it was glorious. Forget mani-pedis, if you want to bond with a new girlfriend, torture is the way to go. This episode had a lot of other stuff going on in addition to some of the best smirk exchanges in the history of ever, so here are your recaps and twitter reactions for Handle With Care.

EPISODE RECAPS:

Tis the season for doppelgängers! As Damon and Jeremy try to bring Bonnie back from the Other Side by teaming up with Silas, while Tessa tries to subvert the plan and bug Elena for good measure, Handle with Care finds its life in the other doppelgänger’s storyline. Long-in-the-tooth Katherine and mystery-solving Caroline are the dynamic duo needed to save the day from doldrums.

By Crissy Calhoun, Vampire-Diaries.Net

This episode was the Katherine and Caroline show all the way, I don’t care. Rest in peace all the rest of the plotlines because Katherine and Caroline TEAMED UP! How had this not happened before? Yeah, I realize they technically spent time together that one time when Katherine murdered Caroline, but it turns out they have a lot in common! In fact their scenes together were so good that I demand another spin-off. Get these ladies their own detective show stat! (‘Stat’ is terminology meaning ‘pronto’.) So good.

Last week, I lamented over the many, many things happening on The Vampire Diaries right now that, while intermittently entertaining, lack any clear purpose or focus. “Handle With Care” did absolutely nothing to alleviate my concerns, but it did feature some delightful new character combinations, a surprise stabbing, and the escalation of the show’s Dobrev level, so at least that’s something.

XXPreviously on The Originals, it was all poetry, hearts and swimming pools down in New Orleans. The show isn’t letting up on its pace for a second so there was a lot going on in this episode, but never fear! You’ve still got time to rewatch the episode, catch up on recaps and check out some twitter reactions before Bloodletting (EP107) starts at 8/7c tomorrow night

EPISODE RECAPS:

If last week’s Sinners and Saints was about how one event can have wide-ranging ramifications and link disparate elements in surprising and important ways, this week’s episode was about how deceptions inevitably rot and individual actions breed consequences. Klaus’s lies and behind-the-scenes machinations are beginning to crumble around him just as Elijah is building and knocking down alliances of his own. And Rebekah, who only came to New Orleans to make sure Elijah was safe, finds herself held at arm’s length as her brothers – at odds as they might be – plot, threaten, and kill in the name of power and family.

The best part about finally shaking off unrealistic expectations is that only then can you truly appreciate what you DO have in life. For instance, The Originals. We definitely have The Originals. I don’t know about you, but no matter what feelings I have about the series from week to week, I’m glad it exists in general.

XXPreviously on The Vampire Diaries, there were pretty costumes and big reveals and an awful lot of heartbreak. Nothing is ever easy in Mystic Falls, and since nothing is ever simple either, now is your chance to catch up on Monster’s Ball (EP505) before tomorrow night.

EPISODE RECAPS:

It’s strange to think about how far we’ve come from the end of season one when Katherine Pierce was the Big Bad in Mystic Falls, the most ruthless, the most hated, the baddie that our gang plotted to kill — and seemed justified in doing so. In Monster’s Ball, she’s a compelling contender for most human — and most vulnerable. On The Vampire Diaries, the diabolical ones are never limited to hero or villain classifications, and the final moments of this episode prove that the moral ground the “good guys” stand on is very very shaky.

By Crissy Calhoun, Vampire-Diaries.Net

This is all prelude to talking about Katherine. Katherine is my #1 favorite character on The Vampire Diaries currently, and a lot of that has to do with her journey from devious vampire to occasional deus ex machina to tragic outsider to, now, sympathetic human woman with a European daughter that loves three-ways. It is the BEST arc possible and it just makes me so happy.

XX Previously on The Vampire Diaries, the bells were ringing, fans were crying rivers over Bonnie and I think we can all agree that poor Jesse landed the worst TA assignment EVER. In this episode, Stefan had HAD IT with basically everything, Damon really stepped up to be the grownup and Tyler-come-lately finally made it back to Mystic Falls. Whew! Catch up on last week’s sobfest (those feathers! Ugh, our feelings.) before gearing up for tomorrow night’s Monster’s Ball (EP505).

EPISODE RECAPS:

Instead of blazing forward, this episode of TVD looked back; with the morbidly only-in-Mystic Falls Remembrance Day celebration as the backdrop, For Whom the Bells Tolls was all about remembering — the past, your lost loved ones, and what the point of being good is in the face of all this crazy-awful.
Vampire Diaries In Review: For Whom the Bell Tolls (EP504) – No Vamp is an Island
By Crissy Calhoun, Vampire-Diaries.Net

It was a pretty good episode! It was about physical fitness. There was another plotline that involved amnesia, and then a fairly big plotline about Bonnie being a– OH I guess this episode DOES kind of relate to what I was saying. Yeah, Bonnie came out of the ghost closet and now everyone knows she’s a ghost. There was also a funeral that was supposed to be sad I guess, but come on. The day a ghost makes me sad is the day I will walk directly off the side of my yacht and french kiss a tuna. Not gonna happen.

By Price Peterson, TV.com

This is one of those episodes that I don’t quite know what to do with. The tease of Amnesia Stefan last week was intriguing because it had the potential to be either the best or worst thing ever, but what I didn’t count on was it being both at the exact same time. Add to that a confounding memorial for Bonnie, the addition of Zach Roerig to the show’s gang of dual-character-playing wunderkinds, and an intriguing new direction for the college storyline, and what you’ve got is a mishmash of a lot of things that don’t quite come together to create any kind of coherent whole.

XXPreviously on The Originals, we began to get the notion that Davina is kind of a big deal, power-wise. We also learned a lot more about Cami, watched Hayley learn a valuable lesson about healthcare and had very mixed opinions about Klaus’ behavior. Relive the magic before Sinners and Saints (EP105), which airs tonight at 8/7c.

EPISODE RECAPS:

This. This is the show we all knew The Originals could be. While the bigger picture is still tantalizingly out of focus, Girl in New Orleans was the first episode to feel wholly confident juggling so many characters and plots and, in a vast improvement over last week’s Tangled Up in Blue, to ditch unnecessary exposition for unexpected and powerful character moments that gave the story exactly the momentum it needed. The supernatural world of the French Quarter is getting bigger and war is looming. But how many “sides” are there? And how do you identify and choose what is “good” and “evil”?

It’s fairly impressive how confident the writers are in how many different facets of the story there are—but we’ll see if they’re right to have that confidence in the next few weeks. The Originals still may be trying to push its plot ahead of everything else, but it has moments of greatness that suggest it can be more.
