The Originals Season 1 Episode 17 Recap: Choose Your Side


No Rebekah… no problem?

That was the question/challenge facing The Originals Season 1 Episode 17, as it aired just days after the shocking news that Claire Holt has left the series for good.

The CW drama jumped ahead a month to put this departure in the rear view mirror a bit, focusing on the tension in New Orleans instead of the missing blonde beauty by Klaus and Elijah’s side.

The episode was really all about sides. Who appeared to jump from one to another?

We’ll get to that first, but first a quick rundown of the teams:

TEAM ORIGINAL: Led by Elijah, with Klaus seeming to care more about painting (and banging Genevieve!) than being King.

Elijah spent the hour trying to broker a true between all factions in the city.

TEAM VAMPIRE: Led by Diego because Marcel has been exiled. He got into it on a couple of occasions with a newly human werewolf named Oliver.

TEAM MARCEL: Led by Marcel, naturally. He recruited his old friend Theirry to help him take back over the city… and he slept with Cami, who was grieving over a very sick Kieran. Hot stuff.

TEAM WITCH: Genevieve is in charge here. She seemed a bit upset when Klaus stopped paying close attention to her – and we all know what an upset Genevieve is capable of. Gulp.

TEAM HUMAN: Led by a new character named Francessa. She is very wealthy and known for her charitable endeavors, though she also runs the local, underground modafinil drug trade.

TEAM WEREWOLF: Jackson is The Man here, and here is also where it got interesting.

Klaus said werewolves were more about family than vampires and appeared to embrace this side of his hybrid self over his usual blood sucker side. He offered Jackson the ring that would make him never suffer the pain of turning again, which Jackson is excited to use to help is clan take over entirely.

And that’s where we left off, with no new episodes scheduled until April 15.

How will we deal until then?!? And which team are you on? Decide now and go watch The Originals online at TV Fanatic.

Desiree Hartsock Wedding Dress: First Look!

When former Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock walks down the aisle this summer, she will do so in a custom wedding dress that she personally designed!

Desiree’s keeping her wedding date under wraps, but did admit to Us that she’s currently co-designing not one but two dresses with label Maggie Sottero.

A “timeless, yet surprising” silhouette for the vows and a “1920s-inspired” reception frock will mark the day in which she marries Chris Siegfried …

“I can’t wait for Chris to see me in all the dresses!” the bridal stylist, who moved from her native Colorado to Seattle to be with Siegfried, says of her man.

The Bachelorette beauty, who creates gowns for her clients from her home, didn’t start designing her own masterpiece until much later, she says.

“It feels like it was 10 years ago!” she says of her run on The Bachelorette, which followed Sean Lowe rejecting her in favor of now-wife Catherine Giudici.

Safe to say that worked out for the best for everyone involved.

“It’s funny if people bring up things that happened on the show, because it feels like it was a decade ago because we’re just living life now,” she says.

“We’ll reminisce about Germany or what we did in Antigua,” Desiree Hartsock says, “but for the most part we’re just focusing on making new memories.”

That could include a somewhat surprising cutting of ties with reality TV.

While many Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants have televised their weddings on ABC, she remains undecided about the scale of her nuptials.

“I think I want it to be more low key than people expect – a small ceremony – and just the essentials,” she predicts. “I’m just excited to be designing my dress!”

As for Nikki Ferrell designing her dress for her wedding to Juan Pablo … we would bet a great deal of money against that scenario coming to fruition. Are you looking for business translation services? Contact Translation Services UK
