    Wow, I hated "Always and Forever" but am so glad I stuck around for "House of the Rising Son" because I loved it!

    I loved seeing shirtless Marcel multiple times. I loved seeing Rebekah kicking ass rather than whining. I loved seeing Davina being all in control. I loved seeing Hailey and Rebekah working together. Only thing I didn't love was Elijah still being daggered.

    So Marcel has banned witchcraft, but yet he has Davina, isn't she a witch?

    Anyway, I'm hope I'm not the only one who stuck around and is enjoying the show!

    The second episode was really good. I still hate Klaus though.

    Rebekah is one [Prince]sexy mf'er[/Prince].

    Isn't she, though? Wow. And I have to say that Divinia (Danielle Campbell) is very appealing, too.

    And Haley---Whoa! Man, is there some sort of genetic predisposition or mutation that makes supernatural beings so f**king gorgeous?

    Actually, I will make it my ambition to work with the casting folks at both The Vampire Diaries and The Originals. They must see a parade of lovely people.

    Minimize the appearances of Klaus. Maximize those of Haley and Rebeka, and this will be must-see an hour later for me. And I want Elijah back.

    I agree, I still hate Klaus. But if they keep up like the second ep, I'll keep watching in spite of him.

    So Davina wants to keep Elijah so she can figure out how to kill an Original. Ugh, I want Elijah back, not just him as a narrator.

    We need less Klaus and more shirtless Marcel...why do I always want to call him Marcus?

    No, no, no...

    Less Klaus, okay. Shirtless Marcel...? Eh.

    Shirtless Rebekah, OTOH... ;) Or pehaps (fingers crossed) shirtless Haley...

    :D

    Sorry... maybe I'm a trifle too enamored.

    I just want less Klaus but I assume that this CW show's targeted demographic wants a lot more Klaus.

    Yay, Elijah is back. I enjoyed getting the backstory on Davina.

    Still hating Klaus, but I guess he is a necessary evil for the show.

    Rebekah cracks me up. I always liked her character on TVD, but enjoy her so much more when she's being tough and funny than when she's whining. Keep bitchy Rebekah, please!

    Snarky Rebekah is great. Whoever was in charge of her previous story lines that had her be a whiny 1000 year old, immortal vampire who just wanted to join the cheerleading team and go to the prom should be kicked in the butt.

    Snarky/bitchy Rebekah and vengeful Elijah are awesome. Elijah is so much better at the big bad than Klaus has ever been! And sweet Elijah is just so damn hot, wow wee!!

    So Marcel took Hailey? Elijah is not going to like that. I can't figure out if Elijah 'likes' Hailey or if he's just protecting her because of the baby?

    Wonder what spell Davina will want from Mom's book?

    I can see the Klaus-Hailey-Elijah triangle coming from a mile away.

    For the life of me, I don't understand why the unkillable Originals just don't kill the very killable Marcel and take over.

    Um, because if they kill Marcel there wouldn't be a show? Plus, he's to pretty to kill.

    I haven't seen a single episode of TVD. Would I need to watch it to enjoy this show?

    Not really, except that it might take you a bit to understand the rules of this vampire universe, and to grasp the relationships. However, to be honest, the latter point is less important, because the allegiances seem to shift rapidly as more "gotchas" and surprises unfold.

    It seems as if the Originals backstory is recapped here in the spinoff, so a viewer wouldn't have to seen TVD.

    Yay another show I'm finally current on besides SPN!

    ELIJAH!!!
    It's all I ever wanted from TVD. I'll suffer through endless Klaus for this badass nobody messes with my family killing machine original Elijah. THIS is how he started on TVD and they totally screwed it up. I'm not letting my guard down here that they won't do the same.

    And I think the two of them like each other but don't want to admit it yet for whatever reason. I'm not sure why it would matter. She and Klaus was just a one night stand and neither seem to care about the other.

    This is what I kept thinking too. But yeah if they do that where's the show? And Marcel is damn charming, I can't help it, I find myself liking him. And I was happy to see Thierry again. I don't know why but I really like that actor. I hope Marcel grants him a pardon and we see him back again.

    Welcome back to the Elijah fan club PSG!

    I'm sure Klaus doesn't want Hailey, now, but you gotta figure that as soon as Elijah falls for her that Klaus will change his mind. I'm glad Elijah called Rebekah so she can get her bitchy ass back to help find Hailey.

    Thank you thank you, it's good to be back!!
    And yes, I'm sure Klaus will want her when he see Elijah does. He's a punk like that. Also enjoying Rebekah a ton too so she can definitely stay.

    Oh and did I mention my excitement over Todd Stashwick showing up!?! Because I really love him in everything he does. (I might have mentioned that before too in the Justified threads). I hope he sticks around. He's been on so many shows but not since The Riches has he been a central character.

    :( Me too!

    So hopefully they'll let him stick around. He's the man in charge where the humans go so he's important right? Say yes say yes. :)
