Get up to vampire speed with our Originals overview from episode number two.
Rebekah arrives in Louisiana, and she & Hayley become BFFs.
Rebekah told Hayley she should skip town because Klaus will probably kill her after the baby is born. But, werewolf girl, a.k.a. Hayley, can’t just up & leave on account of that whole witch hex, and the fact that she and Sophie are linked.
Unaware of the rules, Rebekah demands that Sophie do a locator spell to find Elijah, but she can’t or she’ll end up dead like her sis for practicing magic against Marcel’s orders. Ever the curious one, Rebekah asks Sophie why she doesn’t leave New Orleans and be done with Marcel. Alas, no can do, ‘cause her coven of witches practice ancestral magic, so without access to their ancestors (i.e., the cemetery), they would be powerless.
It turns out Klaus and Marcel weren’t just old buddies. Klaus saved Marcel when he was a kid, and raised him like a son. He even gave him his name: Marcellus, which means little warrior.
Meanwhile, Marcel is totally crushing on this blonde psych major/bartender who goes by the name of Cami. Their date is rudely interrupted by Rebekah who was Marcel’s former flame, BTW. Yup, the two go way back, but Klaus forbade it after catching Rebekah kissing Marcel (who had an unfortunate afro at the time). Klaus daggered Rebekah, and gave Marcel an ultimatum—undagger Rebekah and live out the rest of his days with her, or leave her in the box and have his wish of being a vampire fulfilled. (Well, we know what his decision was.)
In baby news, Hayley snuck off to a market and bought wolfbane (wolf kryptonite) to kill her unborn baby. Marcel eventually got word of the wee wolf in his town, and sent his guys after Hayley, but Rebekah came to her rescue.
Klaus confessed he gave Elijah’s daggered body to Marcel to gain his trust — it’s all part of his plan. Rebekah sought out Marcel and said she’ll kill Cami if he doesn’t take her to see Elijah. So, he does, and we meet that little b*tch Davina again. After Rebekah fails to undagger Elijah, Davina sends Rebekah packing.
Creeper Klaus went into Hayley’s room as she was “sleeping”. She professed she didn’t drink the poison because she realized she wanted to protect her hybrid fetus.
Hayley asks what we’re all dying to know: what happened between Klaus and Marcel? After the Mikaelsons fled the city long ago, they thought Marcel was dead. Turns out he wasn’t, and he didn’t care to let the Mikaelsons know otherwise. Instead, he took everything Klaus’ family built and made it his own. But it won’t be for for long now if Klaus has anything to do with it!
Rebekah rushed to tell big bro Klaus about Davina’s incredible powers & claimed she is stronger than the Originals. Rebekah and Klaus agreed to work together and get Elijah back, just as Marcel told Davina she needs to find out how to kill an Original (permanently). We take it the ol’ dagger in a box is too impermanent for Marcel.
