That. Was. AWESOME!
On The Originals Season 2 Episode 6, viewers were taken way back in time; back to the days where Esther was a weak witch who could not conceive a child and who asked her sister Dalia for help.
Dalia agreed, but told Esther at the time that it may come with a price.
We were then taken to present day, where Esther continued to torture Elijah in an attempt to get him to see the error of his vampire ways and yearn to be placed in a mortal body.
But Elijah held strong and Esther ended up cutting open his neck and chanting some weird stuff while he blood spilled out.
Eventually, Esther allowed Klaus to take Elijah home, although he remains unconscious and it’s unclear what she did to him.
Plenty took place between Esther and Klaus before this act, however, with the former doing all she could to convince the latter that he belongs with the werewolves.
But Klaus wasn’t hearing it. He responded to all of Esther’s words with pure hatred, as her infidelity from 1,000 years ago was brought back up, along with the fact that he kept him from his real father.
Why was that? We learned that Mikael killed Klaus’ dad… while Hayley also met a werewolf named Ansel who had recently started hanging out with Jackson in the bayou. Why was this important?
Because Klaus eventually heard some fighting and happened upon Ansel fending off some werewolves after agreeing to help Hayley rescue Jackson.
When the two locked eyes, Klaus knew instantly: DAD?!?!?!?! Yes, Angel assured him.
Later on, Esther said she brought Ansel back from The Other Side in order to help convince Klaus, to get him to want to be a werewolf and to reconnect with his real father in the process.
Still, Klaus responded with venom. He knocked Esther down and took Elijah home and this is where the major twist took place:
When Vincent/Finn came to check on his mother, we flashed back again. This time, Esther had some kids, including her older, a girl we had never before known existed. Dalia came and took her from her sister, saying that was the deal: Dalia was entitled to EVERY first born in Esther’s bloodline.
Hence, Esther and Finn talked about how they needed to kill Hope, lest Dalia re-appear.
Viewers, of course, know that Hope remains alive. So the countdown is on: When will we meet Dalia?!?
- Cami now knows Vincent’s true identity. She’s all about helping to bring him down.
- The witches cursed Oliver to die at midnight. He passed away in Jackson’s arms.
What a great episode. What a terrible twist at the end!
