The Originals 404 Recap “Keepers of the House” #TheOriginals

The best episode so far this season gives a suitably ominous name to the big bad: the Hollow. Best of all, though, it gives us a Vincent/Elijah team-up. I could watch these two dashing gentlemen together all day.

Episode grade: 10

Episode grade: 8.
