The Originals 3.16- “Alone with Everybody”

There’s a reason the saying “keep your friends close and your enemies closer” exists. This very old strategy just got the Mikaelson family in a lot of trouble. Their biggest enemy was lurking among them all along.

**** Spoilers Below ****

We thought there was a new enemy in town that was auctioning off the last bit of white oak to the highest bidder, but that wasn’t the plan at all. That was all just a distraction, but for what? What’s the bigger plan? That distraction proved to pay off with dividends, because the real enemy now has the white oak.

OR316b_0362bLucien always seemed untrustworthy from the beginning, but he was Klaus’ sire, so it wasn’t too much of a surprise. The student has become the master. Lucien fooled everyone. Now he has the white oak and he has Freya. But why not just take the white oak? Why did Freya have to be part of the equation?

I don’t know what is scarier, Freya being taken and not knowing who took her or knowing that Lucien has her. I just don’t like that Freya’s life hangs in the balance. She may not be one of the two main originals, but she’s one of my favorite characters on the show. I don’t want to see the writers kill her off.

OR316a_0456bIf it couldn’t get any worse, the ancestors want Vincent to help Lucien. Is this in an effort to kill all the vampires? But I don’t know why Lucien would want to die. I get Finn, he hates what he is, but Lucien loves what he is. There’s a bigger plan here and we don’t yet know what it is.

Whatever this plan is, it has something to do with Hayley’s old pack being picked off. It seems nothing is random in this show. Even when Hayley goes back there to lay low, trouble finds them.

OR316a_0241bWhile all of this madness was happening, the writers were giving Josh a lot to work with. Who knew he was such a cyber genius. He even got his very first fight scene. It was incredible. Why doesn’t Josh do more? He’s becoming more and more of an integral part of the team. Lets keep him around and give him more episodes like this.

Davina can never be underestimated, not that I’ve really ever underestimated her, but so many around her have. It’s good to be underestimated. No one sees you coming. Davina gave Kol his best revenge on Finn; Finn is trapped in his vampire body for eternity. Why didn’t Finn just stab himself with the white oak and let it be done already? Why keep it around and keep his family in peril. If he hadn’t done that, the white oak may have been destroyed.

He had to go and say, would you want to live an eternity. That got Elijah thinking and now he’s not even so sure he wants to live forever, though two minutes before that, it wasn’t an issue.

On the one hand, a way out after thousands of years is nice, but now they could be killed at anytime. Elijah’s pause and Finn putting the thought in his head has lead to Freya’s capture and I’m definitely blaming this one on Finn.

Are you worried about Freya? Do you think Elijah should have destroyed the white oak when he had the chance? Let me know in the comments below.
