The Originals 1×03: Tangled Up in Blue
There wasn’t much progress in the third episode, but it was still entertaining. The only big reveal was that Hayley is expecting a baby girl, or at least she thinks so. It are tough times for her. Elijah is still missing, so she decided to read some of his old journals to get to know her in-laws a little better. What’s up with these vampires keeping diaries? Although it was a nice touch if you think about it. It was kind of endearing to watch Hayley trying to translate the weird thing the witch said during her check-up. It’s obvious it was something Latin related.
The show also worked on the love triangle a little bit. Although I’m not sure which one: Marcel-Rebekah-Cami or Klaus-Cami-Marcel. In my opinion Klaus and Cami have the most chemistry. Poor Klaus, finally finds a girl who actually wants to date him (or at least make-out), but he can’t because it would interfere with his plans. Okay, maybe not poor Klaus. But the guy isn’t very lucky in the love department, besides a girl who carries his child and has a crush on his brother (probably). The other interesting couple is Marcel and Rebekah. I think there is much more history between them than we have seen so far.
The party wasn’t really a big thing this episode, although their dresses and suits were stunning, but the fight with a scorned lover/witch was. The scene in the street looked kind of spectacular. Plus Davina is sending power to Marcel from a distance, what the hell?! Most creepy part was “the garden”. Yikes, you don’t want to be stuck there. Klaus may have established a better position when it comes to Marcel’s trust issues, but he still hasn’t got Elijah back. Maybe next time?
The Originals 1×03 quotes
Elijah voice-over: “August 1359. I have noticed a difference in my siblings. Our bond strains beneath the pressure of our life as vampires. Each day removes them further om the humanity they once possessed. My sweet sister Rebekah has grown quite indifferent to brutality. However, the true problem remains by brother Niklaus. He continues to hide his loneliness with cruelty. Still, I cling to the hope that I, as their eldest brother, can lead them down the correct path, a path charged with the power of a family united. For if I fail, our family’s legacy will end in darkness.”
Rebekah: “I am so moved by your newfound sense of fatherly duty towards the werewolf carrying your hybrid bun in her oven.”
Hayley: “The werewolf would like to know what the plan is.”
Klaus: “Well, that depends what plan you mean, love. My plan for global domination or Rebekah’s plan to find love in a cruel, cruel world.”
Hayley: “The plan to rescue Elijah, you know, the good brother, the one who is now in the possession of your mortal enemy after you stabbed him in the back.”
Klaus: “In the front, if we’re being specific.”
Rebekah: “Oh, please. Klaus may be a miserable excuse for a sibling, but there is none more diabolical.”
Cami: “I’m beginning to think your sister is a bit of a bitch.”
Klaus: “Ha ha! It’s as though she invented the term.”
Rebekah: “I like you, Cami. Most girls have the unfortunate tendency of being whiny, little twits.”
Cami: “Is he the infamous on-again/off-again?”
Klaus: “He’s the brother, actually, and my sister is right. You do look stunning.”
Cami: “You clean up pretty well yourself.”
Klaus: “Well, don’t be fooled, love. I’m the devil in disguise.”
Cami: “Wow. I totally misread that.”
Klaus: “No. You read it quite well, but we all have our roles to play.”
