The threat of The Hollow keeps getting bigger.
With Marcel Gerald still in captivity, Klaus decided to throw a party with Elijah to lure servants of the Hollow. Easily predictable is the fact that The Originals ended up being played. We’ll find out how soon.
Remember Josh? The gay vampire guy who was Davina’s BFF. Yes, that guy. He returned in this episode. For one thing, I do like as he’s not being strung along for the sake of having him on the show. Most of his scenes used to be ones that tied with Davina’s, and with Davina dead, Josh has been missing almost all season. Well, Josh was invited to the party thrown by the Mickelson’s for masquerading that all was well between them and clan Marcel. Marcel’s lover (I really need to stop forgetting her name) needed Josh to attend as his plus one in order to find out where the Mickelson’s were holding the most powerful vampire hostage.
Hope is missing from the episode, and I’ll say it’s a disappointment: I’m still waiting for the awesome Witch, Vampire, Werewolf hybridized power promised with this abberation. Keeping her away from our screens week after week isn’t helping with the anticipation one bit. Hayley on the other hand was on a mission to know more about her parents. Naturally, she sought out Freya’s help. This led to one major revelation about the Hollow and its plans to return to the land of the living. More on this later.
The last faction of the episode is the one where Vincent is still collaborating with Klaus and Elijah to save the city from the ancient evil that is the Hollow. Vincent discovered the high priest of the Hollow. The high priest gave Elijah a choice – turn over Vincent and Marcel and the Hollow will spare the Mikelsons. Elijah (who’s acting more like Klaus now) responds by killing the high priest publicly for all of their guests to see. They do learn in time that the talk with the high priest was all a ruse for the other (many) servants of the Hollow to steal Papa Tunde’s blade. Now, Papa Tunde’s blade is revealed to be one of four bones required by the Hollow’s disciples to raise their master. Things are turning out to be more interesting, though as I said before, at a slow rate.
