The Originals Season 4: Episode 5, Klaus Against Marcel, Our Critic
Last night, the American channel The CW broadcast episode 5 of season 4 of The Originals. Then discover our review of “I Hear You Knocking”.
Episode 5 of season 4 of The Originals begins while Klaus and Marcel realize that they have not emerged unscathed from their experience with the Hollow. This force plays with their spirits and very quickly one understands that the Hollow wants one thing: that one of them kills the other. Marcel then receives visits from a false Klaus and a fake Elijah, while Klaus sees Mikael, his adopted father whom he detests so much. All visions push Marcel and Klaus into their entrenchments and they have only one function: to mount them one against the other. Throughout the episode, they will then try to fight their hallucinations and try not to give in to the panic. But as you can imagine, Klaus loses his foot from the moment the Hollow begins to threaten his family. Notably by showing him that it is once again the threat. Asking Freya for advice, she urged her brother to put an end to Marcel, even supplying him with the weapon that would be able to neutralize her, which she had made with Keelin’s help.
Shortly after encouraging Klaus to eliminate Marcel to save his skin, Freya discovers with horror that if ever one of them dies the Hollow will absorb its strength and will become indestructible. Fortunately, Freya and Elijah arrive in time to prevent the massacre. And if Freya throws a potion to destroy the Hollow, something tells us that it will take more than that to get rid of this evil force. In any case, both characters seem to be released from the Hollow and it is now Marcel’s turn to be locked in the dungeon where he had kept Klaus for 5 years . Is this already the end of Marcel’s reign? In any case, Dominic and especially Sofya are not ready to let Marcel crouch in the dungeon and especially, Sofya wants to kill Klaus Mikaelson.
On the other hand, we also discovered in episode 5 of season 4 of The Originals , that the Hollow is closely related to the death of Hayley’s parents, since Mary’s husband had begun to draw the famous dragon that eats Tail before killing them. Is the Hollow linked to Hayley’s family and returned to “finish the job” ? In any case, Dominic, the new sorcerer and friend of Sofya, seems to know a lot about it and it does not inspire us in any confidence … Finally, can we still doubt that Keelin is the Mystery love interest of Freya that we were promised in this season of The Originals ? The complicity between these two is undeniable and their rapprochement is indisputable . Just see how they “leave” at the beginning of the episode. In any case, it’s nice to see that Freya has support and we are eager to follow the evolution of their relationship. In the end, “I Hear You Knocking” is not a very exciting episode, because it was known that neither Marcel nor Klaus would kill the other, fortunately the revelations of end of episode catch the whole thing.
