The Originals Season 1 Episode 6 Recap: True to His Word

by at . Comments

That. Was. Awesome.

On the latest episode of The Originals, Elijah proved that he's a man of his word.

He's also a man with a fierce love of family and Agnes The Elder Witch learned that the hard way this week: after Elijah promised Sophie that he would not allow Klaus to kill her... the best-dressed supernatural on TV did the deed himself.

By snapping her neck. After he tore out the hearts of her witchy friends, that is.

Daniel Gillies has always portrayed Elijah as the calm, reasonable, rational member of the original family.

And what made this act all the better was how that didn't change.

Unlike his wild brother, Elijah didn't raise his voice once. His expression scarcely changed. He remained all business and always in control, whether explaining to Sophie that their deal was off, killing the last Elder in the French Quarter or talking Hayley through her near miscarriage.

Speaking of which, Elijah and Hayley, huh?!? All that's missing now is a nickname for these two. Hayah, perhaps? It's a tough one.

Elsewhere on a terrific installment:

  • Rebekah was fixing to leave New Orleans. But not before a hot sex scene with Marcel, the piece of fruit from the forbidden true that she simply could not resist. Did we mention it was hot? Like, really, really hot?
  • But it also ended with Rebekah again getting rejected... and purposely hinting at where her family resides, via the apple offering? Probably not, but the result was the same regardless:
  • Marcel knows where Klaus and company now take cover and he's starting to unravel their plans.
  • Cami and her uncle, meanwhile, both proved their mettle. They aren't scared of Klaus. They aren't backing down simply because of his reputation and/or powers. Klaus admires that in Father Kiernan, but it's not what he was expecting from Cami. This girl is no victim.
  • And neither is Hayley. Try that nonsense again, Sophie, and she'll kill you.
  • P.S. Where is Hayley?!?
