The Originals Season 1

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...



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.

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.

Yes!

I didn't catch, why did the witchy poo make his brother (twin of the blonde chick whose name I can't remember) go crazy? I know she gave him the drug, and that's why he killed all those people, but why did she do it?

I honestly don't know. That's a very good question! If they said why I missed it. Maybe it's one of the things we'll learn at a future time?

OK, not just me zoning out then! Sometimes I just miss things.

So it was Tyler who took Hailey. I did not see that coming.

Ugh, Klaus is such a baby. At least his bite won't kill Elijah.

Please, please, please, don't turn Rebekah back in to a needy whiner. She's so much better being bitchy.

Needy whiner? Maybe not, but I did like her with Matt. Something about an uber-vampire trying to find a bit of happiness, without ripping the entrails out of mere mortals, that appeals to me.

Are we not talking about this show? It's great!! I think it's already surpassed TVD for me. I love almost all the characters and even Klaus isn't as annoying here. Marcel is simply awesome and you know my feelings on Elijah!

Not invested in the relationship stuff but everything else is gold. I can't believe there's not more activity in this thread.

I can't stand Klaus' sing-songy way of speaking. I can't stand Klaus' childish vindictiveness. I can't stand Klaus. Everything else about this show is ok.

I'm trying to not let him make me hate the show. And he really is far more tolerable on this than he was on TVD. At least this past week we finally got to see a version of Klaus that might be worthy of Katherine running from for 500 years. Maybe.

But I would gladly boot him off the show and make it all about Marcel and Elijah against the witches.

Plus, Klaus gives off a really creepy sexual vibe towards Rebekah. That and his overuse of the word "siblings". I swear he must say it five times per episode.

I've been on vacation for the last 3 weeks and am behind on watching. Otherwise I'd be discussing it more here. Off to finish SoA first and then will move to The Originals....be back soon!
