The Originals has been telling a lot of stories within stories as well as showing us scenes from everyone’s past as of late. This week’s episode is no different. We see Esther and Michael’s life before things went all supernatural.
Meanwhile, Esther still has Elijah hanging from chains in a cave somewhere and Klaus is determined to get him back. She decides to release a few dark secrets in his past that might make him side with his mother in the end. Also, Cami realizes that something isn’t right with this faculty advisor of hers and turns to Marcel for help. Thank god! I was wondering when she would figure that out.
Check out the official synopsis below:
A FAMILY BUILT ON SECRETS AND LIES — Fed up with her antics, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) becomes agitated and demands that Esther (guest star Sonja Sohn) release Elijah (Daniel Gillies), whom she has captured. However, Esther reveals a few dark secrets from Klaus’ past in an attempt to make him an offer he can’t refuse. Meanwhile, Oliver (guest star Chase Coleman) ends up in a dangerous situation, prompting Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) to reconnect with Jackson (guest star Nathan Parsons), who has been living a new life out in the bayou. Elsewhere, Cami (Leah Pipes), who still believes baby Hope’s death was her fault, teams up with Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) and Gia (guest star Nishi Munshi) after she becomes suspicious of her faculty advisor Vincent (guest star Yusuf Gatewood). Lastly, in a surprising turn of events, Klaus comes face-to-face with a visitor from his past.
The Originals airs Mondays 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
