Much like last episode, I would be hesitant to call this episode, and series finale, a trainwreck. Because trainwrecks are actually exciting.
If I had to distill The Originals series finale down to one word (and this is the Internet, baby. Distilling complex ideas into clickbaity, list format is the name of the game), it would be “meh.”
And “meh” is not how I want to feel about the finale of what once was the best vampire soap opera on the CW.
Even the TVD finale wasn’t meh (it wasn’t good, either. But you know).
It makes me wonder how much of a garbage dump the Legacies finale will be. And by “finale,” I mean at the end of the first season. Do you really think that it’ll be renewed?
The Originals continues its theft of things from Once Upon a Time, it seems.
Not only did they pillage Jaime Murray, but now they’ve followed OUaT Season 7’s plan of hurriedly dumping all the new stuff you introduced in your final season in the ramp up to the series finale.
I mean, I’ll allow it. But why emulate OUaT?
