Holy cow, the penultimate episode of The Originals’ first season did not disappoint.
A wise man once sang, “War! It ain’t nothing but a heartbreaker,” and Tuesday night’s The Originals did nothing to alleviate the emotional and physical strain on our characters as we head into next week’s Season 1 finale. The Battle of New Orleans lived up to its name, presenting a battle royale with one huge twist and one hell of a gut-wrenching ending. Once again, late in the fourth quarter, this show has dramatically altered the supernatural landscape of New Orleans as we know it, and the only thing certain is that the final outcome may very well be apocalyptic.
