My Review of The Originals 3.06- Beautiful Mistake

We find out what Tristan and Lucian have been working together, Rebekah returns, and Cami reveals the supernatural world to Detective Kinney.

The current situation is brought to you courtesy of a decision the Mikaelson siblings made and Elijah carried out.  In the 1100s, in order to get a respite from Mikael, Elijah compelled Tristan, Lucien, and Aurora to think that they were Klaus, Elijah, and Rebekah.  The compulsion lasted for 100 years until Elijah was daggered, which broke the compulsion.  As a result of this betrayal, the three first sired swore vengeance against the Mikaelson’s.  I now have to wonder if the sire war is an actual thing or if it was made up as an excuse for Lucien and Tristan to come to New Orleans in order to get their revenge.

And the revenge is going to be a doozy.  Using a dark magical artifact, Tristan and Lucien are planning on trapping Klaus, Elijah, and Rebekah behind an unbreakable magical barrier, thereby getting their revenge and making sure that none of the remaining lines can be extinguished in one blow.  The thing is, I am not entirely sure that the Mikaelson’s can be killed at this point short of having an uberpowerful witch cast some sort of spell to kill them.  The problem with that is that, if I am remembering properly, any such spell will kill the witch who casts it and I am not sure that any witches would get a second chance to strike at the Mikaelson’s.  You also have the fact that the Mikaelson’s now have Freya in their corner and she is a powerful witch in her own right, unless (like tonight) she gets stuck in an area where her magic is nullified.

Her rescues of Rebekah was quite cool.  Rebekah was handling herself nicely, but I think that eventually the Strix would have overpowered her through sheer numbers.  Freya’s nifty neck snapping spell was cool.  I'm not entirely sure how she could use magic when she was astral projecting (if that is what it was), but it was fun to see.

I love Elijah and Klaus’ method of calmly sorting out their issues.  They managed to almost completely destroy the furniture in the courtyard, but they definitely got things worked out, so that is good.  And Freya took the whole thing in like the older sister she is, resigned to her younger siblings quirks.  Hey, if it works…..

Marcel and Hayley are so lucky to be alive.  Elijah warned Marcel to get rid of the Strix member as soon as he could, but instead Marcel and Hayley tortured him and ended up with his fist in their chests for their troubles.  If it hadn’t been for Elijah showing up when he did, they’d be dead.  So say thank you and listen to teacher when he tells you to do something.

Cami’s plan to try and escape from Lucien was not a bad one.  I don’t remember seeing that particular artifact before, so I am not sure what exactly it did, but (unfortunately for her) Lucien listened to her heart and realized that she was trying to trick him.  At least Detective Kinney now knows that the supernatural exists and that things are a whole lot more complicated than he thought before.  Rough way to learn though.  Problem is that I don’t think he’ll remember anymore since Lucien compelled him.

Aurora having Rebekah’s body could be a very bad thing.  She now has something that Tristan and Lucien desperately want, but it is possible that they could decide to just trap Elijah and Klaus.  But now that the siblings know what the plan is, I don’t know if they’ll be so easily caught.

Until next week, when the Mikaelson’s host a Thanksgiving feast!
