TVOM: "The Originals writers are really doing an excellent job this season picking up speed with the fast-paced storylines we first grew to expect on The Vampire Diaries. No sooner did we meet Klaus’ biological father before (SPOILER!) he met his untimely death. It seems like there’s so much more of Kol’s backstory that they’ve even created a supplemental web series called The Originals: The Awakening which debuted last week. All this and more made for another exciting episode last night with lots to discuss, so let’s jump right in."
