Did French "Casket Girls" smuggle vampires into New Orleans?
Davina is busy scrubbing the compulsion from Cami’s brain. It is agonizingly painful, but she sucks it up - and is shocked when she remembers the whole truth about Klaus, Marcel, and her brother. Davina admits that Kieran knows all about Marcel - they are even kind of friends - which rocks Cami’s world.
There is an embarrassment of horror riches on TV these days. In some ways, that makes it easier to choose ten best episodes, because you have a ton of options to choose from. In other ways, it makes it more difficult because there are so many options to choose from, and you have to sift through the bad to get to the good.
Klaus holds a dinner party for Marcel and his inner circle, a sort of introduction to their new leader. He introduces them to Hayley, and since she is carrying his child, she is to be given “the appropriate respect.” In other words, “don’t kill my baby mama.”
Marcel introduces Tyler to his inner circle. Tyler explains about the hybrids, their strengths and weaknesses, how Klaus slaughtered them all, and how his unborn child will be Klaus’s way of creating an army. Rebekah interrupts the proceedings, but she is not there to rip out Tyler’s heart; she is there to help.
Marcel hosts a fight club in which the winner will be one step closer to joining his inner circle and gaining a daylight ring. A victor is crowned, but Klaus interrupts the match by breaking her neck.
Klaus and Elijah are having a very “dignified” afternoon, reading and listening to classical music. Of course there is a dead body between them, a peace offering from Klaus, which Elijah refuses. And of course, Rebekah is the one who must clean it up.
The most important thing we learn tonight is how Davina came into Marcel’s care. Ready?
Davina removes Elijah’s stake in a curious-puppy way. She tells Marcel that she doesn’t want to give up Elijah - he told her to find a way to kill an Original, and dammit, she is going to figure it out! She also wants to go to the music festival. Marcel refuses, and Davina explains how she can make someone’s blood boil - then demonstrates on Marcel.
How do Klaus and Rebekah get Elijah back? Klaus thought he would start by simply asking Marcel for his brother back. And if that doesn’t work, there is always plan B. I love plan B. Plan B is always something vicious, and in this case, according to Klaus, it is war.
