The Originals Sneak Peek: Season 1, Episode 18 — Genevieve Asks Elijah For a Favor (VIDEO)
What’s an Original vampire to do after successfully taking back over the French Quarter? Spruce the place up, of course! In case you need a refresher, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Elijah (Daniel Gillies) are sitting pretty atop the social food chain in New Orleans, and they’ve brokered a peace with the different factions, though that won’t stop Genevieve (Elyse Levesque) from asking for a favor for the witches in Season 1, Episode 18 (“The Big Uneasy”).
“Enough with all the racket!” Klaus yells amid the sound of jackhammering. Elijah orders the workers to stop and asks his little bro if there’s a problem. “I agreed to a general sprucing up, not a bloody three-ring circus.”
Elijah retorts by saying that Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) and his minions abused their family home for the better part of a century and he’s not willing to live in “squalor.” Bit dramatic much, dude?
“I agree with your brother,” Genevieve tells Klaus. “It’s a new era in the French Quarter. This place could use a makeover.”
Basically homegirl is ready to call HGTV for some renovations. Klaus jokes to Elijah that she’s only agreeing with him because she wants something — and it turns out he’s right!
“Actually, I do have a request,” Gen says to Elijah. “I’m told our coven hasn’t been able to celebrate Feast Days in the open since Marcel restricted the use of magic. Now, with the new peace, I’d like that to change.”
The ball’s in your court, Elijah…
Do you think Elijah will give in and let the witches have their celebration? What do you think about the dynamic between Klaus, Elijah, and Genevieve? Hit the comments and let us know!
The Originals airs Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
