'The Originals': Best season 1 moments (so far)

There are just five more episodes left until the season 1 finale of The Originals. The show is currently on hiatus, but returns to The CW on April 15. The last episode ended with the formation of a new supernatural council, Klaus painting a cryptic and foreboding version of the city, and Davina practicing magic again. Before the show returns, let’s take a look back at some of the best moments that have gotten us to this point. Ready to get down to the dirty deets? Let’s do this!

Klaus hulks out on all the vampires who tried to capture him: Marcel got Klaus into a trap and thought for a second he had him defeated. Too bad chains can’t hold Klaus, and neither can 50 vampires. Plus, he pulled this whole “Harvey Dent/Two-Face” coin thing. It was just epic. They must not have gotten the memo about him killing 12 hybrids in one fell swoop back in Mystic Falls.



Elijah introduces himself with a heart transplant: Elijah really showed viewers what kind of show this was going to be when he ripped a heart out of a vampire’s chest without so much as flinching — in a perfectly pressed Tom Ford suit, no less.


That other time Elijah rips out a heart … twice … in a church: He may be the classiest dude in The Quarter, but he’s still ruthless if you cross his family. He was starting to come off as too soft, but all that went out the stained-glass window when he ripped a witch’s heart out at St. Anne’s church for her shady behavior. We’d like to add that his hair never moved an inch during any of these heart removals. #micdrop


Family bonding session in the graveyard: After Klaus found out Rebekah called their father to New Orleans many years ago and conspired to kill him, things got dicey. Luckily, Klaus, Rebekah and Elijah got magically trapped in the cemetery, where they were forced to work through their problems. Several death threats later, they called a truce, and Klaus released Rebekah to go run and be free like she has always wanted.


Marcel tries to hide and protect Davina from being sacrificed: It was up in the air how much Marcel truly cared for Davina, since he was pretty much using her for her supreme teenage witch powers to further his own political agenda. When it came time to sacrifice Davina, though, he hid her and did everything in his power to keep her from getting her throat slit in a creepy sacrificial ritual. Marcel let his fatherly love for Davina be known, and shed a few tears in the process. What a man.


When Klaus carries Hayley: We’re 100 percent Team Haylijah, but you have to admit that watching Klaus carry Hayley home was adorable. It was also one of the first times that we saw him be kind to his baby mama or act like he cared about her and the baby. The cherry on top was him saying, “I’ve got you, love. I’ve got you,” as he was carrying her. Way to go, Klaus! You may have a heart after all.


Elijah and Hayley pool scene: Besides the fact that she’s like six months pregnant with the world’s first hybrid baby, this scene was sexual. The tension between these two is tighter than a tightrope at Cirque du Soleil. Even though she has an arranged marriage waiting for her with her wolfpack, we hope these two get a chance together.


Klaus and Marcel’s first pissing match: One of our all-time favorite moments on the show happened in the first episode, between Klaus and his long-lost protégé, Marcel. Look up “frenemies” in the dictionary, and you’ll see a picture of these two drinking bourbon together with stakes hidden behind their backs. Klaus shows back up to New Orleans after years of being gone and thinks he can just dethrone Marcel. That doesn’t go as smoothly as he planned.


When Cami takes the night off: Cami’s been through a lot. She found out that her brother was hexed by a witch to kill a bunch of people, then himself. Then she found out her brain was being scrambled like eggs at Denny’s by Klaus. THEN she found out her only living family member, Father Kieran, was also hexed by a witch and couldn’t be cured. So she took the night off and had a little something-something with Marcel. Work it, girl. Do you.


Any/all flashbacks: #obvi. How cool was it when we found out The Original Family made it to New Orleans a bagillion years ago by boat? If those aren’t the classiest pirates you’ve ever seen, we don’t know who is.


What were your favorite moments so far from The Originals? Leave your thoughts below! Until next time … #FangsOut.
