The Originals Season 1 Review “Bloodletting”

On the latest episode of “The Originals,” it was transitional episode time, in the aptly-titled“Bloodletting.” Turns out I wasn’t far from wrong when I predicted it had been Tyler on the show that had saved Hayley’s hide a few episodes back. Only he ended up cropping up in the flesh on “The Vampire Diaries” first, if only to reunite with his beloved Caroline, then after a considerable amount of taking advantage (not that I blame him there), to promptly dump her to go after Klaus.

On this episode, we discovered it was actually him who wolf-napped Hayley, not Marcel as assumed, in part to lure Klaus out to him, but also to alert her to the fact that Klaus had nefarious plans for her child, namely to use the child to reboot the whole hybrid thing again. While he wasn’t wrong, there was a bit of a wrinkle in Klaus’ plans- it seems that the hybrids in question were beholden to their mama, as in Hayley, which she discovered after Tyler somewhat viciously used her to successfully create a hybrid himself, only to see it end up obeying mama instead of him.
