The Originals review: Elijah and Hayley heat things up

Nov 6, 2013 at 5:12 a.m. ET

This episode of The Originals was full of so many twists and turns it was definitely the craziest yet. The show is ramping up the sexual tension right along with the dramatics.

Marcel gets the upper hand in The Originals

Now that the vampires know the witches' real purpose, things on The Originals are getting real. Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) goes from being the witches' pawn to Marcel's. The girl just can't catch a break! We're thinking it will be Elijah to the rescue after the chemistry-fueled scenes between the two tonight.

Things don't go well for the witches

  • Agnes uses Sophie's link to Hayley to attempt to cause Hayley to miscarry.
  • Elijah tricks Davina into doing a spell that breaks the bond between Sophie and Hayley.
  • Elijah and Hayley continue to grow closer.
  • Rebekah and Marcel hook up, though it ends badly.
  • Marcel kidnaps Hayley.

Klaus (Joseph Morgan) goes after Agnes after the witch tries to cause a miscarriage by heating Hayley's body temperature through Sophie.

Thankfully, this leads to a hot pool scene with Hayley and Elijah (Who knew eye contact could be so lusty!) along with Agnes' timely demise. She got what was coming to her. Don't mess with the originals, especially when Elijah's around. Sure, Elijah vows to Sophie that he won't let Klaus kill Agnes, but makes no promise about his own actions. He doesn't hesitate to snap her neck.

Plus, the link between Sophie and Hayley is broken thanks to Elijah, who played a little trick on Davina to get her to do the spell.

Now that Hayley is free from the witches, their leverage is gone. That doesn't mean Hayley's in the clear. More on that below.

Rebekah and Marcel sure know how to say goodbye

Poor Rebekah (Claire Holt) just wants a life of love.

Since Elijah has returned, and Hayley's bond to Sophie is broken, Rebekah makes plans to leave New Orleans.

But not before saying goodbye to Marcel, of course. And boy do they say goodbye. It's a long process requiring the removal of clothes and kissing repeatedly.

It's not enough to convince Rebekah to stay. Instead, she expects Marcel to leave with her. He refuses, and they part on bad terms as per usual.

I think these two are the unexpected breakout couple on The CW. I haven't seen sexual tension like this since the first season of The Vampire Diaries. It's chemistry, chemistry and more chemistry. We never would have pegged this couple, but that just makes us love them together even more.

Though neither of them have admitted to any suppressed feelings, all that ogling cannot be mistaken.

Klaus keeps his word, but he's far from the hero

Klaus tells Cami her brother was hexed and not crazy. Too bad Cami doesn't care. She goes a little postal, as she should. Klaus is manipulating her to the max and then expects her to fall for him? Does he really not get it?

No, he really doesn't.

After Marcel's romp with Hayley, he gives Klaus permission to go for Cami. Will Klaus be able to make up for compelling her?

Marcel finally gets the upper hand back

And it's kind of annoying. Just when Elijah and Hayley are reunited, Marcel discovers where Klaus and family are hiding out and kidnaps Hayley. I'm a little confused how he was able to get inside the house. Just because Marcel lived there as a slave doesn't mean he still has rights to the property does it? Hayley would still have to invite him inside.

Whatever methods Marcel uses, he still manages to snatch the girl right out from Klaus and Elijah's noses. Looks like Rebekah won't be saying goodbye after all. Let's just hope the originals can find her before Marcel decides a little mini-Klaus isn't worth the trouble.
