The Originals 1x03 Tangled Up in Blue
Okay, you know this show is nice and all, but I still haven't come to feel passionately about it. And I may never, but for now I do enjoy watching it, and while I've been annoyed at/over the character of Marcel since this show started, but this weeks episode... I don't know, I guess it finally gave him some depth of character or something, because for once I was actually almost interested in the character. Of course, with the surprise twist at the end with Marcel's witch saying no to him... Well, Marcel doesn't seem like the type who's going to take that well.
And while I love Bekka, I must admit that I am somewhat enjoying Klaus's long term power-play here, though I totally understand why she hates it. But seriously, at this point why does Klaus's family keep trusting him? I mean really at any moment he's gonna turn on you, and in Klaus's defense he's honest about this, and yet his family just keeps trusting him... And I mean I get he's family and all, but since this is gone on for more than one human life you'd think his family would just stop at some point.
(Elijah does attempt to address this in a voice-over, but still DAYMN!)
Again though I must admit this episode really had something, because it wasn't just Marcel's character that made an attempt to grow on me, but also Hayley's. I've always been pretty indifferent to her, but this episode like with Marcel did something with her that apparently toned down the traits that annoy me and amped up the previously unknown traits that I could've liked.
(Though, to be fair, over on The Vampire Diaries
, I liked her at first, but then felt mostly that the character grew tedious.)
Or maybe she just got to me, because she was smart enough to keep the creepy part of her pregnancy results a secret while working on trying to translate the language used. Yes, Klaus or even Bekka would probably know, but I just lov...--Cut-- Click here for more --Cut--
