What do you do after you spend an entire day fighting with your siblings in a New Orleans cemetery? You throw a party — the best the city has ever seen! At least that’s what Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Elijah (Daniel Gillies) decide to do in The Originals Season 1 Episode 17: “Moon over Bourbon Street.”
After the most intense session of family therapy ever — and after bidding farewell to their beloved “baby” sister Reekah (Claire Holt) — the Mikaelson lads redirect their attention back onto their political ambitions. Unfortunately for them, their once-firm control over the French Quarter is crumbling and slipping out of their grasp. Chaos has erupted!
“It is Bedlam out there,” Elijah angrily observes. “Witches attacking vampires. Vampires devouring locals.” Yikes — sounds like a mess. So in an attempt to bring the warring factions of the city together and unify the various supernatural groups that have inhabited the area, the Mikaelsons throw an extravagant soiree. Nothing like free drinks and good music to settle old scores, eh?
“Here’s to a spectacularly boring evening,” Klaus says with a glint of malice in his eye, as he clinks champagne flutes with Elijah. In other words, we’re in for one hell of a crazy time! And judging by the fact that we see Elijah and Hayley slow-dancing and some scary-powerful witches who look like they just got off a spaceship, we know this is one event that will churn up plenty of surprises.
