'The Originals' Is Back Tonight! 7 Predictions for The Return Episode "Big Uneasy"
Have you been wondering when your favorite new show would return — because we have and the night is finally here. After a long and painful month-long hiatus The Originals will return to The CW Tuesday, April 15 with a huge episode. "The Big Uneasy" will set the stage for the remaining five episodes of the vampire drama's debut season. And will bring all of the craziness and backstabbing we've come to expect from the Mikaelsons during their stay in New Orleans. So what's in store for tonight's big return?
Well, for one, the witches are at it again with another one of their rituals. This time it's a feast day — or specifically, The Feast of the Blessings — where members of the community offer gifts to the witches in return for blessings. And Genevieve is looking for permission to host this witchy celebration — which, considering the witches' track record regarding their rituals, everyone should probably say HELL NO. But they won't because what's New Orleans without a little chaos and a whole lot of drama. Am I right? Meanwhile, Klaus and Marcel are still competing for who's going to be the shadiest vampire in the French Quarter — and Elijah is still blissfully unaware of the fact that he's really not in charge of everything. Oh, and Hayley's stressed because carrying the world's first hybrid baby and being Queen of the Werewolves is tough.
None of us are under the impression that this feast is going to go as planned, right? With everyone preoccupied and no one watching Klaus, shit can really hit the fan — and judging by the synopsis for "The Big Uneasy", it's going to do just that:
THE FEAST OF THE BLESSINGS — Genevieve (guest star Elyse Levesque) asks Elijah to allow her coven to publicly celebrate a traditional feast day, where members of the community offer the witches gifts in return for blessings. Monique (guest star Yasmine Al Bustami)) and Genevieve disagree over what the ancestors want from them, and Genevieve reveals her plan to build the witches power. When Elijah focuses his attention on restoring their home to its former glory, Klaus accuses him of doing it only to impress Hayley. Next, Klaus sets a new plan in motion by finding Cary (guest star Jesse Boyd), a werewolf from his own line, and sending him off to find a missing piece of family history. Marcel lets Thierry (guest star Callard Harris) in on his new plan to rebuild his power, but Diego (guest star Eka Darville) has his own ideas about the future. At the Feast of the Blessings, Monique and Genevieve try to use the ceremony to teach Davina a lesson, but Klaus intervenes and gives Davina a surprisingly important gift. While Hayley struggles to decide where her loyalties should lie, the ceremony explodes into violence.
There's a lot we can deduce from this extensive synopsis. So here goes seven of our predictions for The Originals' final five episodes based on "The Big Uneasy":
Monique Will Die
And I'm not just saying that because she's the worst and I'd be happy to see her go — I'm saying this because she's just causing way too much trouble. She's just unruly and bitchy and I don't see Genevieve putting up with Monique questioning her authority. Monique seems to think she's the big witch on campus and that's going to come back to bite her big time.
Elijah Will Beg Hayley To Come Home
It's no secret that Elijah wants Hayley home and Klaus is probably right that he's only restoring the house just for her. I mean, it would be the safest place for her rather than being surrounded by a bunch of werewolves she hardly knows. I'd be willing to bet that Elijah will confront Hayley — and because he's not too proud — will ask her to come back mostly because he loves her but also because he wants what's best for her and that baby.
Diego Will Die
How effing annoying is Diego? He listens to no one, he's more or less completely useless, and all he does is complain about everything. So we're not surprised that he's got his own ill-fated plans on top of Marcel's ill-fated plans to regain power. Unfortunately for Diego, he's less necessary than Marcel and because he's a hothead, he's guaranteed to slip up and alert Elijah and Klaus that he's doing something shady. And then he'll die — because nobody has time for his nonsense.
Klaus Will Find His Werewolf Dad
Either alive or dead — Klaus will be reunited with his birth father in some shape or form. Because that's his missing link and if we've learned anything about Klaus thus far, it's that history is his priority. He also obviously wants to take rightful claim over the werewolves — which he could do, armed with history and the promise to make turning optional for them. God, the werewolves are so predictable.
Davina Will Be The Boss Witch
She always manages to find a way to show people what's really up — starting with her impressive flower arrangements during the last episode that were the biggest eff you to Monique for being such a bitch. And if Monique and Genevieve are looking to "teach her a lesson" they'd better be prepared for her to stir shit up and teach them who's boss. Because she really is the most powerful witch in New Orleans and no one's going to hold her down or survive trying. Also, Genevieve's rituals and rules are so antiquated that she really needs to go back to where she came from — the grave.
Marcel Will Get Imprisoned In His Own Garden
When will you learn not to bite the hand that feeds you, Marcel? Obviously either Klaus, Hayley, or Elijah are going to find out about your silly little play for power and you're gonna be done for. And in a twist that Marcel won't see coming, but will make Klaus extremely pleased — he'll get imprisoned in his very own Garden of Eden. (That once held his comrade Thierry.) Because they obviously won't kill him off the show, but he'll suffer for his treason.
Hayley Will Tell Jackson To Shove It
Hayley's well on her way to realizing that her arranged marriage is bullshit. She's also going to realize that Jackson is totally just using her to help the werewolves social climb the supernatural ladder. And Hayley's too independent and tough to put up with any of that — especially since she's going to be a mom. We also can't imagine she'll be happy when she finds out that Jackson's taken up with Klaus in a plan to stab Elijah in the back — so thankfully, she'll be throwing up the peace sign while she walks off into the sunset and away from the Bayou for good.
