I don't know why Elijah keeps on coming back to Klaus. Isn't he tired of getting daggered and put in the box by Klaus?
I think it`s never been made clear but I believe Elijah spent the least amount daggered of all the original sibs. In fact, I could even believe in Season 2 was the first time it happened. He could have been off on his own when Klaus ran with Rebekah in the 20s. Kol was off on his own during one medieval flashback so it seems to have been a thing they occasionally did. This would give him a different perspective than Rebekah has.
There has got to be something redeemable in Klaus in order to sell me the idea that Klaus can make a good protagonist in his own show. Right now I see practically nothing in Klaus that is good.
I don`t either and I don`t think they went for a redemption route here. Which is somewhat surprising. The former baddie turning good for the spin-off has happened before but here it`s pretty much villain vs. villain. I guess you were supposed to root against
Marcel. Which gives Klaus kind of a default protagonist status.
And I have to say while I liked Marcel as a character, I was
rooting for Klaus to put him down in that one scene where Marcel tried to put him in his place. Even though, I understand Marcel`s position, he worked to build himself up to be king of the city and along comes Klaus and pouts about that like a five year old.
However, I`m just so tired of a world where freaking original vampires, creatures who are supposed to be mega-powerful, can be killed by newbie vamps in their kitchen. Argh.
It should yield consequences to threaten one just like this and all those Marcel-groupie vamps luckily don`t have the contractual immunity the Mystic Falls gang has. So I greatly enjoyed Elijah throwing down and mentioning he would swat Marcel like a fly if that was what needed to be done and I equally enjoyed Klaus biting that one guy and smugly pointing out to Marcel that he had just broken one of Marcel`s rules and neener neener about that.
Would have loved it even more if he had ripped out a few hearts or ripped off a few limbs and calmly told Marcel "you were saying?"
One thing I hope to get from "The Originals", if it is picked up, is indeed powerful, badass Originals who are living up to their own myth. And noob vamps who don`t know what that myth is to find out. Big time.
Wonder if Marcel even knows about the bloodline thing, that Klaus is taboo for him anyway or poof? Or, since Kol lived in New Orleans, too, way back when, presumably he made offspring then? And they sired vamps, too? Has their been unexplained sudden vampire deaths a few months ago? Something like this should have been mentioned.
