Klaus, Hayley, Hope and Marcel had a full day of familial bonding that leads to the penultimate moment when Hope freed her older brother from bondage. During this time, Freya and Keelin made it past the awkward flirting stage when Freya finally opened up about her feelings, while Vincent and Elijah had an eventful day murdering young girls and gaining new allies.
The Originals Season 4 Episode 7, “High Water and a Devil’s Daughter,” is the best gem Season 4 has produced. Similar to “Keepers of the House,” this episode does momentous work on all ends of the spectrum: character development, expanding and building relationships, plot progression, and even a bit of action. It seems this show has found their heart this season through the Marcel, Hayley, Klaus, and Hope dynamic, and it’s doing amazing work for their story-telling. I loved every moment.
