My Review of The Originals 2.11- Sanctuary

Hayley persuades Klaus to let her share a secret with Jackson, Rebekah meets someone who is more than a little frightening, Finn continues his quest to uncover the secret Klaus is keeping, and Kol gets more than he bargained for when he helps Davina.

Rebekah is free of the prison Kol put her in thanks to her sister Freya, who is seriously powerful and wants a family reunion.  I have the feeling that this reunion is going to turn unpleasant very quickly.  Freya seems to have a thing against people who mistreat their friends considering how quickly she took apart Cassie and the other witches in the house.  Add to that the fact that she was then able to get out of the house so quickly and it adds up to someone who is not to be trifled with.  She so wants to meet her younger siblings and I shudder to think what will happen when she meets them.  This family is unstable under the best of conditions, and the current condition are far from the best,  Unless I am reading Freya completely wrong, she is more than slightly insane and that is not good.

As bad, if not worse, is the fact that Finn has figured out that Hope is still alive.  Using some slightly impressive deductive skills, he was able to figure out that the only thing that Klaus and Elijah would go so far to protect is Hope.  I just wonder if he’ll be able to find her or if he will be foiled somehow.  My biggest worry is that he will somehow team up with Freya.  Then again, I have to wonder if she would side with him against their siblings or not.

Hayley has persuaded Klaus to trust Jackson with the secret about Hope, for now.  I don’t know how long this will last given what Klaus was saying to Elijah.  Klaus seems to see Jackson as a means to an end.  He plans to use Jackson to make the wolves powerful enough to protect Hope and then I think he plans to get rid of Jackson.  I don’t think he’s doing this out of any sense of love for Hayley, but because he will go to extraordinary lengths to protect Hope.  He’d better hope that the wolves are strong enough to hold Finn off, because if Finn manages to get his hands on Hope, it will not be pretty.

Poor Kol.  He does something good and gets a serious curse in the process.  I so hope they don’t kill him off because he really is one of my favorite of the Originals, for much the same reason I love Kai.  Elijah is honorable and awesome for that reason, but Kol has an unpredictability that makes him so much fun to watch.  He is most definitely not the smartest of the Originals, but he is lots and lots of fun.  Now Finn has cursed him to remain in the body of Kaleb with only a few days to live.  It is possible that someone more powerful might be able to lift the curse, but I am not sure that anyone other than possibly Freya or Davina is more powerful, and I don’t think that Davina is more powerful since Finn is channeling the power of both Mikael and Esther.  Maybe if Freya and Davina pooled their power?

Until next week!
