[Rant] Haunter of Ruins – The Originals 4×03

Warnings: spoilers, inappropriate jokes (it’s ranting; what do you expect?), careless language, messing up the order of the events

  • ‘Tis a peaceful day of the Mikaelsons…
  • The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, no squirrels are eaten and it’s a lovely day in… I’m sorry, where are the Mikaelsons?!
  • In the middle of nowhere, right. Even Klaus says it out loud.

20

  • Nice manor tho.
  • The Mikaelsons sure are early risers… or they just don’t have the need to sleep after sleeping for 5 years.
  • Nate just nailed Bratty Kol *thumbs up*.

19

  • The way Elijah’s hands are frozen in the holding position for some seconds after Kol snatches the newspaper
  • It may have happened a lot in the dream world.
  • Klaus took the time to shower and groom himself properly. Gotta look dashing for his little girl.

4

  • … but he forgets to groom his temper obviously. Perfect timing, bro (y).
  • Hope’s looking intimidated and confused. I wonder if Hayley had ever taken her to the attic to ‘meet’ her aunts and uncles or just told Hope about them. But Hayley must have shown her pictures, no?

23

  • Anw, first impression isn’t so good.
  • Klaus’s looking so hurt he doesn’t dare follow his little her into the garden. Aw.
  • Ooh, flashback and even better, it’s flashback of Vincent and Eva.
  • Maisie’s beautiful af.

5

  • Eva seems so nice and sweet I can hardly reconcile this Eva with the evil witch in the second season.
  • So Sophie Deveraux had a gift of telling that a woman’s pregnant. That’s how she was able to tell Hayley was pregnant in the first season. Makes sense.
  • Vincent’s gonna be a father. Considering we haven’t heard even one mention of his kid today we can safely assume it was either stillborn or got taken away. Anw, bad things happened.
  • Oh, Will… How I miss thee. Thought he was offed by some rascal vampires in the last season finale. His status has been officially promoted to the show’s human token. Is it too much to ask the scriptwriters to please not kill him off?

7

  • Seeing Eva and Will does give me hope that perhaps we can get to meet a few old faces (but not Caroline please), namely a certain crazy redhead and her equally crazy but devoting brother. Their fates were cliffhanging in the last episode and I’d prefer the writers tight up the loose ends. In other words, if they have to get rid of Tristan and Aurora then just kill them off and be done with it.
  • Back to the Mikaelsons.
  • Klaus’s bonding with Hope seems to go rather well, except that Hope’s drawing that creepy blue circle and later seeing it.

  • Hope’s doing magic!!! Without Freya’s teaching her any spells yet!!
  • The magic she uses to heal the butterfly is pretty much the same as Freya’s when she reunited with Finn in season 2.

1718

  • Kind of feel sorry for Keelin until she accuses Hayley of betraying her kind for a bunch of vampires. What has Hayley done that can be considered betraying her own kind, girl?
  • But Freya sure is brutal when it comes to protecting her family. And she’s bit cranky as well. Very much like a pre-Hope Klaus.
  • And Keeling nonchalantly reveals that she’s queer.
  • I’m not the only one sensing Freya x Keelin vibes, right?
  • And why Freya’s unhurt after she’s hit by Keelin’s car?? Weird.
  • Meanwhile Kol and Rebekah are musing their life matters over a fresh corpse. Who’s gonna clean up after, I wonder.

8

  • Pretty a foreshadowing of their leaving, which happens near the end of the episode. But it’s alright, they’ll come back soon enough, especially when trouble is brewing at home.
  • I find it extremely refreshing that the enemy this time doesn’t seem to be the Mikaelsons’ result of centuries of mistreating others, or does it?
  • Vincent’s recollection of how the book landed in his possession is creepy enough. So, was he possessed and unknowingly wrote it or it just copied the handwriting of its ‘owner’ for the sake of messing their mind?
  • Why the serpents though? Is it some sort of ancient creatures/monsters?
  • Whatever it is, let’s hope when it’s brought into the light, it won’t be a gargantuan disappointment like Cade aka the (lame) Devil.
  • Aw, look at Klaus’s reaction when Hope surprises him with a gesture of affection. 1000-year-old Original hybrid, Big Bad Wolf, everyone’s nightmare, totally baffled. You’d better get used to them, man, ‘cuz you’ll be getting a lot of them from now.
  • The blue light again.
  • Nice to see the old Strix mansion. Less nice to see it become a sacrificial ground for some creepy-ass dude that may or may not make it through the episode.
  • Creepy-ass dude whose name we may never know knocks down Marcel. Creepy-ass dude: 1, Marcel: 0

12_zpsu9enk76x

  • Actually, make it 2 since Marcel’s a super vampire now.
  • Creepy-ass dude may be creepy af but he’s one strong witch.
  • Shouldn’t we be surprised that Hope’s among the kids targeted? No, we shouldn’t.
  • Which leads us right back to the Mikaelsons’ mansion, and Hope’s nose-bleeding. Never a not-worrying sign for a witch.
  • Can we just have a few seconds appreciating Hayley’s running out to her daughter in her underwear and Elijah’s shirt.
  • The vampire-hybrid sex earlier is hot af, and I’m not even a Haylijah Not to mention the “I love you” confessions from both of them. Hard to get a screenshot of the bedroom scene tho as they keep vamp-speeding like that.
  • Are they fighting for domination in bed?

16

  • “She needs me. I need both of you. We’re a family.” Kudos for Hayley.
  • So the family’s back to New Orleans. Freya’s probably staying home.
  • The exorcism of Eva looks creepy enough.

  • And then there’s Will, clearly possessed, slitting an officer’s throat and driving the children to God-know-where.
  • Last but not least, Kol and Rebekah’s on their road trip (after taking a nice car from some random victim). Hope to see them again soon; they still have some bonding with their little niece to do.

Looking forward to the next episode.

    1. Có Việt sub đó bạn, tuy chất lượng dịch thì mình không bảo đảm. Mình xem thử thì thấy còn nhiều lỗi nhưng chưa đến mức không hiểu gì cả. Bạn search tên phim tiếng Anh The Originals hoặc tên tiếng Việt Gia đình nguyên thủy/Gia đình thuỷ tổ gì đó là ra liền.
