Well, so much for that treaty. It lasted a solid day or two.

On The Originals Season 1 Episode 18, the peace that Elijah had arranged between humans, vampires, werewolves and witches went out in a blaze of smoke.

Sorry, correction: it went out in a bloodbath, as Marcel compelled some humans to slit their own wrists at a party in honor of the new witches, the vampires there couldn't control themselves and dead bodies were left in a chaotic wake.

No wonder this installment was titled "The Big Uneasy."

In response to Marcel intervening in the city's calm, Elijah killed Thierry. He tore the guy's heart out of his chest right in front of his best friend.

Claire Holt may be out of The Originals.

But she has permanently earned a spot in our hearts. And perhaps in other body parts as well.

Having shocked viewers by exiting The CW drama a couple weeks ago, the blonde beauty is now stunning readers of Glamoholic, posing for a spread in that magazine and talking about her upcoming career plans.

"I would love to continue to challenge myself by trying different things," she says. Action, drama, comedy... I would be grateful to do any and all of it if someone is kind enough to hire me!

"I have such a wonderful time on The Originals though, because I get to play Rebekah in so many different periods. I’m a little spoiled."

No Rebekah... no problem?

That was the question/challenge facing The Originals Season 1 Episode 17, as it aired just days after the shocking news that Claire Holt has left the series for good.

The CW drama jumped ahead a month to put this departure in the rear view mirror a bit, focusing on the tension in New Orleans instead of the missing blonde beauty by Klaus and Elijah's side.

The episode was really all about sides. Who appeared to jump from one to another?

No, she never turned that car around.

At the conclusion of The Originals Season 1 Episode 16, Claire Holt's Rebekah said her goodbyes - after being granted freedom by her dastardly brother - got into her car and drove away from New Orleans.

And she won't be coming back.

Multiple sources confirm that Holt has left the series. She is no longer a regular cast member and there are no formal plans at the moment to bring her back at all.

Two things burned brightly on The Originals Season 1 Episode 15:

  1. The New Orleans opera house in 1919.
  2. The anger of Klaus Mikaelson.

Indeed, the latest strong installment of this CW drama featured Klaus recovering from his stab wound and vowing revenge against Elijah, Marcel and Rebekah.

He told Cami all about his father and how he was "the monster other monsters were afraid of."

Seriously, Klaus may be a bad dude, but he promised Cami that he wouldn't drag out his stalking of Rebekah. He wouldn't kill hundreds of innocents just to get his vengeance. He wouldn't be in any way like his dad.

Viewers had to wait many weeks for The Originals Season 1 Episode 14 to air, due to an Olympics-inspired hiatus.

But we're guessing Rebekah Mikaelson would have been happy if the installment never aired at all... because her darkest secret finally came out and it looks like it will change the course of her life forever.

Rebekah in 1919

Back in 1919, in order to be free from Klaus' rule and free to love one another completely, Rebekah and Marcel conspired with Genevieve to bring back Mikael and do away with Klaus for good.

Only Genevieve wasn't aware of the depths of their plan and when Rebekah feared she would tell Klaus, she killed the witchy friend she had used for her spell.

Throughout The Originals Season 1, the focus of this new CW hit had been on its core characters.

Week after week, viewers witnessed one friend turning on another, new alliances being formed, chess pieces moving around the board in The Big Easy.

But that all changed with The Originals Season 1 Episode 13.

It's safe to say the Celese-led witches made their presence felt during the hour. How so?

Last night on The Originals Season 1 Episode 11, Sophie came up with a drastic plan to save Davina, whose sudden illness is impacting the entire French Quarter.

Will it work? And what will the fallout be if it does not? That was the question.

The Originals offered their support for the surprising plan, while Rebekah continued her own plan - to gain control of the city - only to face a setback of sorts.

Elsewhere on The CW's hit Vampire Diaries spinoff, Hayley apologized to Elijah for her recent betrayal of his privacy, and Klaus reveals his clan to Hayley.

What else went down in the latest episode, "Apres Moi, le Deluge"?

The Originals Season 1 Episode 9 closed out the show's 2013 run in strong fashion, as the CW freshman drama continues to outshine its parent show.

The Vampire Diaries is still watchable and formidable, no doubt, but it's the spinoff that's raising the stakes with new twists, bombshells, and alliances.

On The Originals Season 1 Episode 9, Klaus opened up to Marcel about his time in New Orleans, and they ended up joining forces against the human faction.

Elsewhere, Hayley sent Rebekah and Elijah to protect the wolves Klaus planned to wipe out, and in doing so, they learned some new secrets of their own.

Meanwhile, Cami struggled to remember everything she forgot because of Klaus' compulsion, and thanks to Davina, it looks like she's about to. Painfully.

Watch the final installment of 2013 from start to finish now!
