The Originals Burning Question: Who Will End Up in The Garden Next?
The Originals has some spooky settings, but none so chilling as The Garden, aka the basement prison into which enemy vamps get bricked to desiccate until they’ve served their sometimes century-long sentence. So far, we’ve seen Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) stick those who have betrayed him into its dark corners. Who might The Garden’s next victim be? We speculate below.
Rebekah (Claire Holt) and Marcel already tried to throw power-hungry Klaus (Joseph Morgan) into The Garden once to no avail, but that doesn’t mean the task is impossible. Rebekah seems determined to free herself from her brother’s controlling ways. Does she have another potential plan up her sleeve? Perhaps involving teaming up with Davina (Danielle Campbell) and Cami (Leah Pipes) now that Marcel has officially turned Team Klaus? It’s hard to tell with this one, but if anyone knows how to take out Klaus, it may be Rebekah – who has spent centuries playing witness to his weaknesses.
There would be something kind of ironic about Marcel ending up in the very prison he has exiled so many of his friends and enemies to. And, let’s be honest, how long can this alliance between Marcel and Klaus really last? Klaus doesn’t seem like the type to share power easily. And we think he would like the idea of being able to visit Marcel for a chat from time to time. We’re still not sure if Klaus knows about Marcel’s prison basement. It is technically on his property, but given that Marcel and Rebekah were using it for clandestine meetings after Klaus’s coup, he may not have wandered down there yet. But be assured: once he finds it, no one in New Orleans is safe from its musty mortar.
Rebekah is being quite rebellious these days – and we love it. But we doubt Klaus will if the deceit continues. Though Bekah’s first bid to overthrow Klaus was unsuccessfully and she lost her ally, Marcel, to Klaus’ puppy-eyed persuasions, that doesn’t mean the Original vamp has given up. She has seemed to finally come to a revelation concerning Klaus’ centuries-long emotional abuses. We doubt she’ll be able to forget it so easily. And, if she makes another unsuccessful bid for power, we’re not sure if Klaus will let it go as easily. Conversely, is Marcel dedicated enough to his new bromance to sell Rebekah and her schemes out to Klaus? Perhaps.
Right now, Elijah (Daniel Gillies) and Klaus are on good terms. However, so are Elijah and Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin), aka the mother of Klaus’ unborn child. Klaus is uber paranoid that with Elijah and Hayley’s growing affection for one another, he will be replaced as father in the upbringing of his child. Sure, Klaus has the option of daggering his sibling, but he only has one of those pesky daggers laying about. If he has to take both Elijah and Rebekah down, then he is going to have to get creative about his methods: One with the dagger, one with The Garden. What? That’s how we’d do it.
