The Originals Season 4: Episode 9, The Sacrifice of SPOILER, Our Critic
Last night, the American channel The CW broadcast episode 9 of season 4 of The Originals. Then discover our review of “Queen Death”, pay attention to the spoilers!
Are we really losing another member of the Original Family? Indeed, episode 9 of season 4 of The Originals ended with the sacrifice of Elijah which allowed the rebirth of the Hollow . It must be admitted that “Queen Death” is a rather confusing episode in which there is a lot of things happening without always understanding the ins and outs. Moreover, the fact that the characters change several times of plan of attack does not help in anything and everything that turns around the Hollow remains still vague. The episode begins while Elijah is dying at low fire, poisoned by Marcel’s venom. Sofya, still possessed by the Hollow, promises to return Elijah if her family gives her the last missing bone for her rebirth.
All the characters are then on the war foot. Vincent wants at all costs to prevent the Hollow from returning, even to sacrifice Elijah for the good of all. Marcel wants to save Sofya. And, of course, Hayley and the Mikaelson want to save Elijah. Negotiations are not easy, especially because we still feel resentment in Vincent’s words, after all, the Mikaelson had not hesitated to sacrifice Davina. After much reflection, they still manage to find a plan to try to save everyone, but this will involve Klaus’ sacrifice. The latter is ready to put his life in danger to protect his daughter and Freya must recover his soul to put it in the pendant that had been occupied once by the soul of Finn.
Vincent can not complete the ritual of Klaus’ sacrifice and the Hollow is too powerful to allow Freya and Hayley to save Elijah. As we witness the death of the latter, we can see the blue light of the Hollow becoming more and more intense, feeding on the strength of the Mikaelson. Their rescue operation did fail and it is unclear whether their last-minute idea of putting Elijah in the pendant worked. If Hope and Freya end up seeing and hearing Elijah, he is far away and they hear him scream. Does this mean that we must keep hope for Elijah? If the emotion is very strong after the death of Elijah, the lack of clarity on what is happening makes lose intensity to the scene and is a shame. The episode of The Originals ends with the rebirth of the Hollow – in a fairly disgusting scene, it must be confessed – that takes again human form, one thinks that the worst is yet to come for the Mikaelson, their allies and even all The people of New Orleans.
