Me too.
It was EASY to hate him.

Now he is, like you said, very "entertaining."
He is turning out to be much more complex than originally thought and there is a touch of morality/humanity still left in him.

This show has become awesome. It's surely my favourite of the season now, and Amnesia Girl might actually be poised to become useful now, too. biggrin.gif Let's hope Davina also has some vervain with her to prevent future mental tampering.

I definitely predicted that the reborn witch would be evil now, although I didn't think she'd kill Sophie. What isn't clear is whether being evil is a side effect of the rebirthing process, or whether she just got a new world view by chatting it up with her ancestors on the Other Side while she was dead. This confirms that Davina will be coming back at some point, but it's not clear whether she will convert to the Dark Side or stay loyal to Marcel when she does.

I'm waiting for the introduction of the magic growth formula element. All miracle baby plotlines employ some sort of device to age the baby to at least teenagerdom immediately after birth, because nobody wants to watch a show where the action sequences involve diaper changing.

Interesting episode.
I'm not sure why Klaus didn't just rip the witch's head off the moment he was freed.

Which reminds me....how the he!! has these witches managed to become the most powerful of all in N.O.?
Vampires, even The Originals, hardly seem like a threat now.

You'd think someone as manipulative as Klaus wouldn't be so easy to manipulate, either. He's spent all this time reclaiming New Orleans for himself, and now the witches have him off on some pointless revenge quest so they can take over again while he isn't paying attention. Honestly I wish the crazy sacrificing guy had been the Big Bad, instead of Celeste. Maybe we'll find out her biggest weakness is frozen pizza. As for how they became so powerful, they're using the Harvest magic combined with the energy Captain Cobra sucked out of all the vampires he killed.

We haven't been given any explanation for how she went from Elijah's beloved to a crazy body snatcher, and if body snatching was so easy, you'd think every witch would be doing it. (Of course, everyone seems to have completely forgotten at this point that body snatching was how Klaus revealed himself in the first place, when he possessed Alaric. These writers seem to use it as their go-to plot device, and TVD is still using it as we speak.)

I REALLY hope this series has learned from TVD mistakes.
I am within an eyelash of cutting TVD loose after all these years....rolleyes.gif

I'm torn on TVD: on the one hand, I'm quite tired of body snatching plots, but on the other hand, it's finally led Damon to stop being a sissy for the first time in a season or two.

I'm feeling kind of bad for Haley at this point. She just has to sit at home being preggers while all the vampires and witches are out on the town having all the fun. tongue.gif

The lack of imagination is killing this series.
TVD jumped the shark a long, long time ago.frown.gif

A strong return episode by one of the CW's best series.

New Orleans is in an uproar, with battle-lines drawn between the 3 groups of supernatural naughties.
Hayley and Klaus's hybrid baby and all that it means is at the core of the turmoil.


The Mikaelson's latest family feud revolves around the child.
The parents (Mikael and Esther) of the Mikaelson siblings can't keep from sticking their noses (like all parents, eh?) into their kids' enclave in the French Quarter and creating havoc at every turn.

Klaus has slowly evolved from a ruthless a$$hole on The Vampire Diaries to a caring protector of the family (albeit still ruthless).

Poor, tormented Elijah...he can't win at anything these days.
Impossible love and regrets haunt him (thanx to Mum).

I fear we may have lost Claire Holt as Rebekah again.
One of my favorite performers and characters.

It is remarkable the actress now playing the character has Holt's voice and accent down to a tee.
I don't know how casting managed to pull that off.

Swine are good people too.

This is a show I consistently enjoy. Good characters and basically no rules so very little predictability. It just goes everywhere and is a fun ride.

The moment Claire Holt returned with the introduction of another body-swapping angle, I knew they were going to use it as an excuse to add "Rebekah" back into the story without actually having Claire Holt around. Sometimes I hate being right. I wonder why they did that, though. She's not tied to another show right now, so maybe she just doesn't like being Rebekah anymore. She always seemed the most reticent of the bunch, I guess.

The new Rebekah is indeed managing to carry it off, so the transition isn't as unpleasant as I had thought it might be.

I do think it's a bit too convenient that the family's long-lost sister just happens to be in that house. How did she get there? Why hasn't anybody noticed her before? If witches can't get out of the house, then does that mean whoever brought her coffin into the room is one of the current residents? She must have gotten there between when Klaus trapped the first two witches in the house and now, since presumably Kohle would have noticed a coffin upstairs back when he was searching for the gem that Klaus stole from him.

Gripes aside, this is probably the CW show that I most enjoy these days, although TVD has improved somewhat this year from the drag that was season 5.
