The Originals Season 5 Episode 8 – TV Review

The Originals The Kindness of Strangers Elijah hot

Should we make Kameron an honorary Mikaelson? Her last name’s almost there as it is.

Wait, so you’re telling me an episode that features meaningful conflict and stakes between established main characters is better than wading through suddenly-prophecies and nobody vampire Nazis?

The Originals God's Gonna Trouble the Waters Antoinette

Forget her, Elijah. She’s just vampire Nazi trash.

I’d like to first start this post by correcting an error I made last episode: there was Hollow-quake action at the house when Elijah and Klaus were fighting. Remember that random hail? Yeah, I didn’t last week, either.

But if a Hollow-quake happens in the woods, but it doesn’t affect the scene in any way and only pretends to be important when it’s brought up by a C-list character in the next episode in a suddenly-prophecy, does it make a story-impactful sound?

Really, The Originals?

The Originals Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea Klaus Josh

Whatever happened to Danny from Teen Wolf?

Nah, just kidding. Klaus doesn’t hook up with Josh.

But what he does do is arbitrarily kill some barely-named, nothing minor characters.

This is the kind of quality content we’ve been looking for in our final season, right?

The Originals Season 5 Episode 3 – TV Review

The Originals Ne Me Quitte Pas Elijah Hotness Parade

It was well worth the wait.

You know, a pitch for a bottle episode in only the third outing of the season, and featuring a main character with explosive amnesia and one of the major disappointments of OUaT’s final (real) season, wouldn’t have gotten a yes from me.

And I would have been wrong.

The Originals Wrong Turn on Bourbon Keelin Freya kiss

We’ve come a long way. #itgetsbetter

Sure, it gets better for the gays. But what about picked-on nerdy werewolf-now-hybrid high school geeks?

Buh bye, Henry.
