The Originals | S4E10 | “Phantomesque” Review [podcast]


Hey there, everyone!

How did you all enjoy the directorial debut of our beloved Daniel Gillies?? I have to say, I love that The Vampire Diaries and The Originals have allowed some of the cast members to test their talents at directing. We’ve seen episodes directed by Ian Somerhalder, Paul Wesley, Joseph Morgan, Charles Michael Davis and now Daniel Gillies. Can’t wait to see what some of the women can do!!

In any case, I couldn’t make it on Skype today, but I sent Mike my thoughts on the episode and he held down the fort!

Check out the podcast below and let us know what you thought!

SYNOPSIS: After the devastating events of the previous episode, Klaus requests that his estranged siblings Rebekah and Kol return home to stand by their family against The Hollow. Meanwhile, Freya recruits Hayley for a dangerous journey that will put both their lives at risk — but may be the sole means of saving someone they love. Elsewhere, tensions rise when Marcel leads a hunt for The Hollow — putting him on a collision course with the person he was least prepared to face. Finally, as Kol continues to mourn the loss of Davina, he is forced to consider the lengths he’d go to see her again.

One thought on “The Originals | S4E10 | “Phantomesque” Review [podcast]

  1. 1. Marcel is a dummy for thinking he could just take the Hollow’s blood. Really? Did he think it would be that easy? Stupid. 2. Klaus talking to Elijah in his coffin. So sad but heartwarming. 3. Glad Kol and Beks are back but pretty tragic to find out your brother died that way. Nice Klaus/Beks hug moment though. 4. Hope is powerful and they all have to just accept it. Obviously don’t put her in a dangerous situation but they need her. 5. Beks/Marcel. Poor Beks. She is still in love with him and I have no idea why but she was a grown up about it. 6. Kol/Davina. Geez. I don’t know what to think about Kol sometimes. He’s certainly funny but he never felt that true Always and Forever like Beks/Klaus/Elijah. He always felt left out and do I think he would go against his siblings for Davina? I am 90% sure he would, TBH. 7. Ugh, I was dreading getting to this. Hayley/Elijah. My beloved couple. I just don’t think Hayley did enough to get through to him. She should have used her love for him but she was too afraid. I don’t blame her because he was scary but she should have talked to him more. Epic fail on Hayley’s part or I should say the writer’s part. When Hope finally pulled him out of it, the devastation on his face was too much. (insert tears here) And when Elijah took a step forward and Hayley took a step back, then said Please forgive me. OMG. (insert more tears here) The only good that came out of that whole Red Door situation was the Klaus/Hayley conversation. It was touching and true. (again insert tears) All I gotta say is Hayley/Elijah need to talk it out when he wakes up but she must understand and forgive. He probably would not have retreated to that part of himself if his mind was not shattered by the pendant breaking. And they are truly monsters inside and Elijah hates himself for it. He battles it every day. But he does show compassion and remorse and regret for things he’s done. He has evolved so she needs to recognize that. The Viking Elijah she encountered was when he first turned and he is not that raging monster anymore.
