“I intend to put up with nothing that I can put down.”
– Edgar Allan Poe

The climax of this week’s episode of The Originals centers around Le Théâtre du Grand-Guigno (“The Theater of the Big Puppet”), known as the Grand Guignol. It was a theater in the Pigalle area of Paris from 1897-1962, that specialized in naturalistic horror shows. Its name is often used as a general term for graphic, amoral horror entertainment (Source: Wikipedia). Klaus reveals to Cami what really happened the night the Mikaelsons ran for their lives from New Orleans. Celeste’s final act backfires on her. Elijah makes a deal with a surprising ally. Rebekah and Marcel return to New Orleans to get help, but face certain death.

As the episode opens, we’re in a New Orleans jazz club in 1919. Elijah (Daniel Gillies) and Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Lana (Morgan Alexandria), the queen of the Crescent werewolves, are toasting to “a new era collaboration in the face of Prohibition” (werewolves, vampires and corrupt cops). The woman toasts to their docks, their alcohol and her theaters for hiding it under. Elijah looks out over the club and tells Klaus it was his vision, it was all him. Back to the present day, a bare chested Klaus is lying in bed with the blade still inside him, obviously in pain. Elijah looks at him and says, “this was all you.” (A full circle moment?)

Consider the consequences, of betrayal; for there is no greater a driving force for revenge, than the betrayal of another’s trust. – Wes Fessler

In this week’s episode of The Originals, revenge for betrayal is the central theme. The witches Genevieve and Celeste put their torturous plan into action as Elijah and Marcel race to rescue Rebekah and Klaus. The secret of 1919 is revealed, resulting in deadly consequences for Marcel and Rebekah.

The episode opens with a wounded and bloody Rebekah (Claire Holt) awakens in a busy old-fashioned hospital. She sits up in a panic and what she sees dissolves into a run-down, abandoned hospital but no for long. Suddenly, she sees patients on hospital beds, coughing up blood and dead patients with blood all over themselves. Then the hallucinations abruptly end, a frightened Rebeka hears laughter. She asks who is there but gets no reply so she hightails it out of the room and finds the exit. The building looms large behind her as she runs away, passing a leaf covered, weathered stone marker that says ‘Fleur-De-Lis’ Sanatorium. As she stands at the top of the stairs leading down from the sanatorium, a large knife is stuck into her back. She collapses and sees her attacker is no other than Genevieve (Elyse Levesque) (Ta-da!). She tells Rebekah she thought that they might reminisce. Rebekah passes out and Genevieve looks up at one of the windows, and smiles at Celeste who is watching. Celeste (Shannon Kane) makes her way over to Klaus (Joseph Morgan), who is regaining consciousness, strapped down to a wooden gurney. His naked chest (oh yeah) reveals a pattern of red spidery lines down the middle.

When we are no longer able to change a situation – we are challenged to change ourselves.
– Viktor E. Frankl

In this episode of The Originals, everyone will be making life changing choices. Klaus’ rule of New Orleans will take a wicked detour when Celeste unleashes her devious plan to destroy the Mickaelsons and take control of the city.

At St. Anne’s Church, Father Kieran (Todd Stashwick) is conducting a service to celebrate the opening of the newly constructed church. Cami (Leah Pipes) steals a look across the aisle of parishioners at Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Marcel (Charles Michael Davis). When Klaus meets her gaze, she turns away in disgust. Marcel meanwhile has spotted a red headed woman that he recognizes, sitting across the way. When Klaus looks at Marcel and asks if there is a problem, to which he replies no. As the service concludes, Bastianna (Shannon Eurbanks) enters and waits at the back of the church.

“The only completely consistent people are the dead.” – Aldous Huxley

This episode of The Originals unveils the secrets of the year 1919. Celeste unleashes a powerful warlock on the French Quarter. Rebekah is sacrificed and Haley’s baby holds the key to her rescue. Cami comes to Marcel’s aid in a most unexpected way.

As the episode opens, Celeste (Shannon Kane) leads her summoned warlock Papa Tunde
(Owiso Odera) and witches Genevieve (Elyse Levesque) and Bastianna (Shannon Eubanks) through the witches’ cemetery. Genevieve remarks how she remembers this place and Celeste admits she has returned to this cemetery many times over the past century, but “wearing one face or another” (Is she a body snatcher?). Celeste stops at a wall of grave markers. They all have the Chopin last name and begin with Edna born in 1847- died 1919, then Simon 1852-1937; Flora 1899-1963; Charles 1902-1974; Lucy 1930-1986 and ending with Grace 1937-2007. Celeste lights a incense stick and when she blows them out, the names disappear from the bottom up as Celeste remembers each person (Maybe not her because they overlap in births. Her original family maybe?). The only plaque remaining is Edna Chopin.
