If the insanity teased in the first Originals promo for next week’s episode had you on the edge of your seat, just wait until you sink your teeth into the extended one. Season 1, Episode 3: “Tangled Up in Blue” promises takedowns and an all-out war — but first, the vamps are partying.
“A vampire hosting a fitzy charity party?” Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) questions to Klaus Mikaelson (Joseph Morgan), but we don’t see his response. Instead, we flash to screams, dances, and an interesting exchange between former almost-lovers Rebekah (Claire Holt) and Marcel.
“I can tell you fancy her pure heart,” she says, the shot panning to when Marcel was dating with bartender Cami, who was actually wearing an angel costume. “Perhaps I’ll feed it to you.” What a perfect Rebekah threat.
While the rest of the promo doesn’t have new footage — with Klaus explaining to baby mama Hayley that their “plan” is war and fights and explosions breaking out around New Orleans — we could watch these clips over and over again. Klaus and Rebekah teaming up to take down Marcel, whom they both love in one way or another? Davina exclaiming that “something’s coming”? Marcel furiously questioning the bad things someone did? We’re ready to get “Tangled Up in Blue.”
Since Elijah isn’t present in any of the footage, all signs point to him being locked in his coffin, daggered and even more hurt than before — Marcel does want Davina to learn to kill an Original, after all.What are you most excited for and scared about for Episode 3?
