    Fabulous, Klaus again an insane badass, Elijah and others trying to protect their family and vows. The faceoff between mikael and mikaelsons was great to see the fear, thrill and an great threat coming back again, every character characterization is done well which makes its interesting as show proceeds.

    the supporting cast does it's best but Klaus Mikaelson will never be an interesting character no matter how hard they push him.
  • Jun 28, 2020
    Season 2 was way better than season one. It had twists and turns and so many layers to the plot. It was amazing.

    I think The Originals is better than The Vampire Diaries in some aspects, or maybe I am bit tired of the second one. Great cast and perfomances.

    In its second season The Originals delves deeper into the Mikaelson family and resurrects old feuds. After reclaiming control over New Orleans, Klaus discovers that his dead mother and brothers have crossed over from the Veil and are inhabiting the bodies of witches, and that it was his mother who put a death sentence on his child. At times the plot can get a bit confusing with all the body swapping, but it also allows for some interesting story arcs and adds an extra degree of mystery. Plus, it enables the show to bring in fresh new actors to play the Mikaelson characters; in particular Maisie Richardson-Sellers as Rebekah does an incredible job. Season 2 of The Originals has an ambitious vision that, while not completely pulled off, makes it extraordinarily exciting and compelling.

    picking up several months after Season 1 it seems that all is well; the witches sacrifice is thwarted but the ancestors from beyond the grave still demand baby Hope's blood the one who is calling all the shots this time is their mother Esther the first new wave of enemies consist of every other member of the Mikaelson tree from Cole to Finn to Freya but all of them inhabit other bodies their mission is to bring down Klause, Elijah, and Rebekah things even get more messy when Davina is conjuring more powerful magic thereby bringing the dreaded Mikael back to life in order to finish off Klause once and for all Rebekah also goes through a startling transformation while combating Esther and the rest of their vengeful siblings Cammy isn't around as much as she was but still serves as a beacon of hope whenever Klause has doubts about himself, his siblings, and his loyalties toward others Elijah is also given some more background into his troubled past and is reminded of guilt by killing the love of his life, Tatia (played by a familiar face we all know) another doppleganger Hayley also takes on an immense responsibility being in charge of the Wolf Pack and sharing her power through marriage the other threat in the form of a witch, Eva Sinclair is only in there for a short while but still tests Rebekah's measure of control over herself like I said too one of the newer siblings, Freya whom was believed to be deceased also comes back to try to put an end to a life she's been wanting to be free from but it also means trying to tear down Klause by pitting everyone against him I gotta say that the first half of this season drags out the bitterness of all the Mikaelsons pitting themselves against one another, it goes back and forth and back and forth to the point where it seems like it will never end ugggh.... there is a lot of blood feud between these people but the show at this point seems to be stuck where it should be moving forward but once the 2nd half finally took shape it got interesting again I think it's because they introduce an enemy that is not all that family-related but still has deep cuts from over 1000 years ago Dahlia, whom turns out is the sister of Esther has come back from a long nap to take away baby Hope's power and become even more powerful it's also a hell of a finale as the Mikaelson's band together in one final attempt to keep baby Hope safe forever we do lose a few more supporting characters this time around as well which does heighten the emotion a bit, they're not big losses but still leave an impact considering they've been around for a while Klause becomes even more conflicted as ever forcing others to choose sides, testing their commitments, making the hardest of choices, and protecting his child at any cost again the first half of this second season was struggling a bit but by the end it picked up again to where it needed to be this time it's all about protecting your loved ones, siding with whomever is the strongest, doing the unthinkable, sticking to your own community, and never giving up on the ones who follow you through thick and thin an okay second season overall, just not as gripping or menacing as the first
