Mar 23rd: Claire Holt Sets The Record Straight About Her Exit From “The Originals”

Jen | Categories: Claire Holt, Interviews, Season 1, The Originals | Comments Off on Claire Holt Sets The Record Straight About Her Exit From “The Originals”

On March 11, BuzzFeed reported that Claire Holt had chosen to leave The Vampire Diaries spin-off, The Originals, after her 16-episode contract was up. At the time, Holt and creator Julie Plec chose not to comment, but now, both the actress and executive producer are breaking their silence, speaking exclusively to BuzzFeed, in order to squash inaccurate reports.

“It’s ludicrous,” Holt stated of reports that the writers had run out of ideas for her character and forced her out of the show. “I want to be very clear that they didn’t run out of material, I wasn’t pushed out, I wasn’t fed up with Rebekah, I didn’t quit mid-season, there was no drama, there was no rift between cast members; it really came down to the fact that I completed my initial commitment and made a life choice, not a career choice.”

Holt’s decision to leave, which she said solely stemmed from a desire to be back in Los Angeles with her loved ones, did not come easily. “This show has been so amazing for my career, and I’ve had such unbelievable material, it was just never my intention to be away from home this long,” she said of the atypical route that brought her to The Originals, which began as a three-episode guest role on Season 3 of The Vampire Diaries, but quickly evolved into so much more.

“The family – that dear octopus from whose tentacles we never quite escape, nor, in our inmost hearts, ever quite wish to.” – Dodie Smith

This week’s episode of The Originals focuses on the Mikaelson siblings coming to grips with their troubled family history and relationships. Elijah tries to save Rebekah from Klaus as they find themselves trapped in the Lafayette Cemetery by Celeste’s boundary spell. Marcel makes a deal with a surprising ally.

As the episode opens with a flashback, Rebekah (Callie McClincy) is a little girl in her bed, frightened of a lightening storm outside. Next to her straw bed, Klaus (Aidan Flowers) as little boy, and another brother are sleeping in another straw bed. Klaus wakes up and goes over to Rebekah. He tells her not to be afraid, that it’s only a storm and he won’t let it hurt her. He then retrieves a carved wooden toy that is a knight on a horse. He gives the large chess piece to Rebekah. He says it’s a brave knight and that now she will be brave too. She asks him to stay with her until the storm ends. Klaus takes her hand and says he will be with her to the end, no matter what. (So sweet!).

Mar 11th: The Originals: ‘Le Grand Guignol’ – Recap/Review

Linda | Categories: Charles Michael Davis, Claire Holt, Daniel Gillies, Danielle Campbell, Joseph Morgan, Leah Pipes, Phoebe Tonkin, Season 1, Spoilers, The Originals, TV Series | Comments Off on The Originals: ‘Le Grand Guignol’ – Recap/Review

WARNING! THIS POST CONTAINS SPOILERS!

“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?)

Mar 4th: The Originals: ‘Long Way Back from Hell’ – Recap/Review

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.
