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

The Originals 401 Recap “Gather Up the Killers” #TheOriginals #FreeTheMikaelsons

The Originals 401 Recap “Gather Up the Killers” #TheOriginals #FreeTheMikaelsons

The Originals is back for S4, and it’s off to a good start. I kind of hate most of the Mikaelsons at least some of the time, and some of the Mikaelsons most of the time…but their world is still fascinating, and they’re sure surrounded by compelling and appealing characters, like Marcel, Vincent, Hayley, and Josh.

Episode grade: 8.
