Who is Elijah Mikaelson without his unrelenting devotion to his brother’s redemption, without any sense of familial loyalty, without the promise of “always and forever?” Those are the questions at the heart of this week’s episode of The Originals, which explores what life has been like for Elijah in the seven years since he had Marcel erase his family (and their lifelong vow) from his memory.
