My Review of The Originals 3.18- The Devil Comes Here and Sighs

Lucien and Aurora go after the Originals with a vengeance while Freya tries to come up with some protection, the Ancestors have a nasty surprise for Vincent, and Davina tries to help out Kol...

I need to start with the Ancestors, who are a nasty group.  I've been rewatching the first season of The Originals, and the way the Ancestors are acting right now reminds me a lot of the way they were using Monique against the Originals then.  Actually, their attitude towards the Originals reminds me a lot of how Esther treated her children whenever she was on The Originals or The Vampire Diaries.  Which would make Lucien a lot like Alaric when Esther turned him into an Original back in season 3 of TVD.  Like I said last week, any supernatural creation like this has to have a weakness.  Alaric's is that his life was tied to Elena's, so killing her killed him as well.  So far, we haven't seen anything similar about Lucien, but I assume there has to be something.  I think it would be interesting if somehow his life was tied to the Ancestors.  After all, he is their champion and they are the ones who used Vincent to cast the spell which created the potion Lucien used to turn himself into the Super Original.  Maybe if the Ancestors power can somehow be cut off from the world, then Lucien would lose his power too.  The problem with that is the fact that the New Orleans witches require the Ancestors power to fuel their own, so cutting off the Ancestors would destroy the witches' power in New Orleans.  The only exceptions to this might be Davina and Vincent since Davina was shunned and (from what she said to Vincent) he no longer has access to their power either.  Of course, Freya would still have her power because her magic isn't bound to the Ancestors.

The other advantage to cutting the Ancestors off from the world is that they would no longer be able to influence Kol the way they have been.  We saw tonight that Kol is fine when he is away from their influence, so that is a good sign for him.

Another idea I had tonight is that the prophecy we have been worried about all season only mentions that three of the Originals will be brought down.  "One by friend, one by foe, and one by family" if memory serves.  Well, so far we have had Rebekah brought down by Elijah (family) and Finn killed by Lucien (foe).  What is the third is Kol, who is brought down by Davina because of what the Ancestors have done to him?  That would make her the friend, which would mean that we would still have Elijah, Klaus, and Freya up and about.  Remember, prophecies open themselves up to a variety of interpretations, so it is entirely possible.  Just food for thought.

Cami is in some serious trouble.  She has been attacked and bitten by Lucien, which means that she can't have a lot of time left.  If, as the first hybrid, Klaus' blood can cure a werewolf or hybrid bite, could Lucien's blood hold the key to curing the bite of a Super Original?  It would make sense, but I am not sure how the Originals will get their hands on any.  I guess they could see if they turn Aurora completely and then use her blood to try and cure Cami, but I don't know how successful that would be.  I would definitely hate to lose her, but it looks like we might be headed in that general direction.

It was sort of fun watching Klaus try and get into Aurora's head.  It didn't work, but it was a decent effort.  The problem is that she knows him too well, so his tricks don't really work on her.  He did manage to get Lucien all riled up when he got Aurora to confess that he was a means to an end.  That had to hurt.

Until next week!
