The Rise – The Originals Novel
Interesting look at one of what is probably many untold stories about the Mikaelson’s through the years.
The Loss – The Originals Novel
Frankly, they just needed Freya alive in this one. This would have solved all the problems.
Wordslut – Amanda Montell
I really loved this book and the way it looks at language. It follows the traits of language that are more commonly ascribed to women, including uptalk and valley girl talking. I also like the way it investigates words that are often used to denigrate women and it is interesting to see that many of them started out as meaning quite different things.

2×3 – Love the new character of Jim Barney. He’s great at interviews. And Olivia’s going on a date!
2×5 – Not 100% sure about Kaye… I hope she’s not going to hurt Wendy.
2×15 They All Asked For You – Freya! And Rebekah is apparently going nuts…
2×16 Save My Soul – Still love Freya. Still dislike Jackson
2×17 Exquisite Corpse – Go Freya!
2×18 Night has a Thousand Eyes – Dahlia is terrifying, but Claudia Black is so fabulous at this role. I felt sorry for Freya at the end of the episode. Her last connection with someone who knew her before Dahlia took her is gone.
2×19 When the Levee Breaks
2×20 City Beneath the Sea
2×21 Fire With Fire – Not sure Elijah will ever forgive Klaus for what he’s done to Gia and Hayley
2×22 Ashes to Ashes – Loved this episode. Still love Freya, and glad that Klaus trusts her now. That scene of Freya saving her siblings was great.
3×01 For the Next Millennium – Love Freya. I can already tell I’m going to hate Lucien
3×02 You Hung the Moon – Hayley! Let’s not hit Freya. She’s trying to help. Loved the moment with Elijah’s confession. His devotion to Hayley is beautiful. I also surprisingly enjoyed Elijah and Jackson working together against Lucien.
3×03 I’ll See You In Hell or New Orleans – And Tristan is just as bad as Lucien
3×04 A Walk on the Wild Side – Loved seeing Elijah and Hayley dancing together.
3×05 The Axeman’s Letter – Well, Aurora is completely nuts
3×06 Beautiful Mistake – Love Freya just astral projecting in and snapping the necks of the Strix. As you do.
1×11 Escape to Death
Huaka’i Kula: I love Melanie. Seriously, she’s fantastic.
Lucy – Well, that movie was a trip. Brought up a lot of interesting questions – particularly about what would happen about using 100% of our brain capacity, and would we really want to? I do wonder about the fact that you would be aware of the subconscious things your brain does – such as filtering out the sound of your eyeballs moving, and things like that.
