It's Vampire book club on the latest episode of The Originals and something is telling me that Klaus has some repressed feelings. As Klaus reads A Poison Tree by William Blake, we get flashes to the main players in this war between the supernatural beings. “I was angry with my friend: I told my wrath, my wrath did end. I was angry with my foe: I told it not, my wrath did grow. And I watered it in fears, Night and morning with my tears; And I sunned it with smiles, And with soft deceitful wiles. And it grew both day and night, Till it bore an apple bright. And my foe beheld it shine. And he knew that it was mine, And into my garden stole When the night had veiled the pole; In the morning glad I see My foe outstretched beneath the tree. “ As he finishes the poem, there’s this look on his face that screams uncertainty as he watches Elijah smitten over Hayley and thinks about his enemies. But this is only the beginning of the episode; we’ll see how much more his anger grows. While Rebekah has been deemed super nanny, cleaning up after the boys and watching over Hayley, Elijah plans to unlink Sophie and Hayley. After finding out the truth about why the witches brought his family back to New Orleans, he doesn’t trust the witch any more. Their deal with Sophie Deveraux is null and void. Elijah’s got a deal going on with another witch, Davina – she just isn’t quite aware of it. Camille pays a visit to her uncle, Father Kieran. She confesses that she no longer feels pain over her twin brother and that it bothers her. Although Kieran knows what really happened, he tries to console his niece. But the words he utters – “The only person responsible for Sean’s behavior is Sean” – doesn’t seem to sit well with Cami. The Original family isn’t the only people disappointed in Sophie Deveraux. Agnes, the last living elder of their coven, has a little problem. She kidnapped Sophie and she’s determined to destroy the baby that will destroy them all. She ends up injecting Sophie with a cursed relic filled with some type of poison that will aid in killing the baby. Marcel, who is questioning the actions of Klaus, turns to an old friend, one he trusts the most – Thierry. Thierry recalls the night he broke Marcel’s number one rule and Marcel’s suspicions on Klaus are raised once again. Rebekah reveals to Hayley that it’s time for her to leave her brothers behind. Hayley’s seem to have grown to like Rebekah and something’s telling me she doesn’t want to be left alone with the elder Original brothers. Klaus uses a little bit of information via Sophie Deveraux to get some leverage on the human faction of New Orleans. He and Father Kieran have quite the showdown when Klaus demands that they find out the whereabouts of Agnes. Klaus isn’t taking any of her funny business and Father Kieran wants a piece of Agnes as well, especially after what she did to his nephew and another deal is made. Anges reiterates that what’s done is done and nothing will stop the miscarriage. But Elijah’s plan works. He somehow manages to get Sophie to agree to help Hayley and unlink them. His faith in Davina proves to be of great importance. Earlier, he convinced Davina to use her magic to untie a knot. Once she completes the spell, Elijah promised another spell from his mother’s book. After a few failed attempts, Davina succeeds and it turns out, the spell not only untied the knot but also unlinked Hayley and Sophie. Sophie begs to Elijah to make sure Klaus doesn’t kill Agnes. She’s the last elder and the source of their power, the only one who can perform special spell and rituals, including the Harvest. Elijah promises and we all know how he keeps his promises. But keep in mind how he words his promise. “I won’t let my brother kill Agnes.” He definitely kept his promise. He stopped Klaus from killing Agnes. He kept that privilege for himself. Family over everything – Elijah never lets us forget. After Rebekah runs away from home, she runs into Marcel’s arms. Things never change. Even after living hundreds of years, the young Mikaelson girl still wants a family and life of her own, but Marcel just wants power. Things to note: She gives him an apple. Klaus’ little minion on the inside of Marcel’s army made a very big mistake, one that will probably cost him his life. Marcel followed Josh’s trail. We find Marcel under the apple tree and I’m thinking he more or less followed Rebekah’s apple trail. Marcel has come face to face with the big secret Klaus has been hiding. While Klaus is off making another enemy in Cami – she’s pissed that Klaus made her be at peace with her brother’s death – Marcel gains the upper hand in this war. Looks like Marcel came into Klaus’ garden and stole what belonged to him, but to Klaus’ dismay it’s still a long while till he will see his foe “outstretched beneath the tree.” And now Klaus is even angrier.
