All of our seasonal plots are percolating along full-speed now. Our main cast has several problems, not least of which is Kol’s premature (2nd) death at the hands of Finn/Vincent. While are Mikaelson clan are still riled up about that, we learn that Rebekah’s host body has a load of enemies (and maybe deserved her fate in the witch jail); Klaus thinks his werewolf honor guard will do his bidding without question; and Elijah is seeking new routes to recovering from Hayley’s marriage. But all of that pales in the icy blue light shining from the eyes of new cast member extraordinaire, Meg Foster! If you want to lend gravitas to your CW horror show full of an overload of super-pretty youths, what better way than to reach out to a bonafide scream queen, who can bring all the drama and frisson required with a sublimely alien glance? Elijah brings Gia to his meeting with elder witch Josephine. Gia was a musical prodigy when she was alive, like Josephine herself when she was young. Josephine, however, finds vampires far too crafty and resists his requests, at first, until Gia lets her true musical tastes be known. Then she rewards her “candor.” Candor, not something practiced by most characters on this show. Though Freya seems sincere when she revives her father Mikael, wanting to reunite with the man who has grieved her for 1000 years. Finn she absorbs into her necklace, allowing Vincent’s body to be returned to the witches. Her meeting with Elijah and Klaus is somewhat frosty, but Elijah is at least willing to talk, while Klaus (as usual) refuses to accept reality, even after evidentiary psychic flashbacks are presented. He’s too busy setting Aiden against Jackson in the werewolf camp. Well, there are few friends there, but his advice does save werewolf lives when Jackson gives faulty orders, and Hayley makes it clear that there is only so much wolf manipulation up with which she will put. Klaus and Elijah both play long games, but which is more perceptive, after all? Meanwhile, a witch tries to kill Marcel and Rebekah (seems her body was a child-killer), but neophyte witch or not, Rebekah has recalled enough of her mother’s lessons to defend herself. Smart girl.
