The Originals Round Table: "The Big Uneasy"

at .

New York might be called the city that never sleeps, but with all the wars being waged on so many different fronts in New Orleans, that title might as well be given to the Big Easy as well. The supernaturals there never get a break.

The Originals Season 1 Episode 18 saw vampires attacking vampires by making them attack humans and ended with the witches targeting the werewolves. Hayley and the baby, specifically.

Join our TV Fanatic Round Table, consisting of Matt Richenthal and Miranda Wicker from right here at TV Fanatic and Heather Vee from, as we dish on that and more, then join us in the comments below.

What was your favorite scene or quote from the episode?

Heather: Elijah confronting Klaus about his pact with the wolves, without question. Quiet, righteously pissed off Elijah is my very favorite Elijah of them all, and to see him finally tell Klaus "no more" was as thrilling as a heart-snatch. Just epic.

Matt: The obvious answer is Elijah going all bad ass on Klaus, but I’ll go with Elijah going all sweet (ass?) on Hayley instead. It was the epitome of selfless love to see him being happy simply because Hayley was happy. The episode really belonged to Elijah.

Miranda: I really loved Klaus standing up to Genevieve at the party by offering a gift to Davina, even if he does have a motive for doing it. I don't think he wants to hurt her, but does understand the genius of having a powerful witch in his pocket. Davina's the only witch on this show I like, so I'm inclined to side with those who side with her.

Monique: Love her or hate her?

Heather: I love her in the sense that she creeps me the eff out, but I hate her a lot. I'm basically anti- anything or anyone that wants to bring harm to Davina, psychologically or otherwise.

Matt: She’s totes annoying! You’ve been alive again for like 12 minutes, girlie. Calm yourself.

Miranda: See my previous answer: Nope. 

Do you think Klaus would really be able to kill Marcel?

Heather: No. 

Matt: No. There’s nothing worse in Klaus’ mind than betrayal, but saw it with Rebekah’s cemetery speech in The Originals Season 1 Episode 16. The guy is a sucker for those he truly loves.

Miranda: I think (hope) the writers wouldn't be able to kill Marcel because Charles Michael Davis is just too damn hot. And Klaus wouldn't be able to kill him either. He has a super hard exterior and a warm gooey center when it comes to those closest to him.

If you're Marcel, what's your next move?

Heather: Guerilla warfare, without question. Straight-up.

Matt: Call Cami. Work out my aggression in a more… umm… productive manner. If you know what I mean!

Miranda: Get Davina out of the Quarter. Or make my own pact with the werewolves.

Elijah or Jackson: Whom should Hayley choose and why?

Heather: I'm not sure Hayley should choose either at this point. But I know for sure it shouldn't be Jackson.

Matt: Elijah. In related news, the beach is fun, puppies are cute and Orphan Black is awesome.

Miranda: Elijah. Because the Jackson-Hayley betrothal bit is...odd. And Elijah looks better in a suit. And a v-neck. And shirtless.
