Critic Reviews for The Originals Season 4

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

"Gather Up the Killers" started out slow. Not because of the exposition, but due to the lack of Original family members.

The Originals Season 4 Episode 1 was, without a doubt the best episode in a few years.

This wasn't a bad run of episodes, even if the show fell back on some of the old tropes of the genre.

With its mother show The Vampire Diaries over, it sure feels good to be back in New Orleans for more of the vampire/witch/werewolf/hybrid drama-fest the is The Originals.

At this point, part of me wonders if The CW didn't make us wait so long for The Originals so that we'd be in a similar mindset as the characters, who've waited five years to be reunited.

Audience Reviews for The Originals: Season 4


Cut back to 13 episodes, Season 4 marks the beginning of the end for The Originals. The Mikaelson family rallies once again to save Klaus from Marcel, but when an ancient evil called the Hollow raises and forms a mystical link with Klaus' daughter the Mikaelsons team up with Marcel and the leader of the New Orleans witches to defeat it. While the season arc is pretty strong it’s marred by a lesbian love story involving Freya; which plays more like Stockholm syndrome, as Freya abducts and chains up her future lover, holding her hostage and treating her as such for half the season. Also, the show's getting a little repetitive and formulaic. Yet the writers continue to do a great job at creating tension and suspense, and the fight scenes are exciting and action-packed. Season 4 of The Originals has some problems, but it's still entertaining and full of thrills.
