The Originals Season 3 Episode 9 Review: “Savior”

The Originals

I wish I could say this was a happy holiday-themed hour of The Originals, but it was far from it.  More scheming and too much bloodshed made for a rather heartbreaking midseason finale.

Rebekah was back!  Of course, there was a catch to it as nothing is ever cut and dry.  Elijah rescued her from her imprisonment by The Strix and expected she would be her old self.  That was partially true, until the curse put on her kicked in.  She turned nasty towards everyone, including Hayley.  That’s when even Rebekah realized there was something wrong, and the best thing she could do to protect her family was to dagger herself once more.  Only she asked dear noble Elijah to have the honors of daggering her this time.  Logical thinking here, and I hope it all works out for the best.  Once this year of the prophecy passes, her brothers and sister can wake her up, and hopefully, they can deal with whatever mess is thrown at them as a family once more.  

Freya had her hands full after being attacked and poisoned by The Strix, too.  She tried and failed to cure Rebekah of her curse.  I don’t know about you, but I was thinking this would’ve been a good time to have had Davina and the ancestral witches on the Mikaelsons side.  That bridge has long since been burned.  Oh well.

In happier news, there’s two couples to discuss.  Hayley and Jackson somewhat made up.  He came around to realize that Hayley does love him, but she’s always going to be tied to this other family as well.  The sooner he accepts that, the sooner they can move on as a couple.  Then, of course, I need to discuss Klaus and Cami, also known as Klamille.  Their chemistry finally paid off in a kiss.  They moved it to the bedroom pretty quickly, but they only fell asleep together.

If someone could explain to me how Cami’s throat slitting went undetected by Klaus in the night, I would love to hear it.  How deep of a sleep can a vampire actually get into that he doesn’t instantly wake up the millisecond he hears a trespasser in his bedroom?  Aurora is a tiny girl but she’s pure evil.  Cami looked pretty darn dead to me, as Klaus’ reaction seemed very real.  It’s unclear if she had any vampire blood in her system at the time of death, but even if that’s the case, I hate that this had to happen.  Cami was the only human truly in the know and truly on their side.  Such a shame, especially if she’s gone for good.  

What did you think of the winter finale of The Originals?
