Hey Amy Jo! I'm sorry about the Round Table. One of my brothers died this week and it's been pretty weird and awkward and rough.
I don't know if it would matter if Finn and Kol had sired vampires to pose as themselves. Since they're both dead, their sire lines are dead, too. That is, presumably, how Tristan and Lucien realized the needed to do something about the remaining three originals.
WAIT A MINUTE. Now it's coming back to me RE the baby in the basement of Murder House. (It's been a minute since I've seen it! Plus, also, 1:30 a.m.!) Okay, now it might be time for a re-watch!
You know? I made reference of that in the recap, but by the time I got to the review, it was, like 1:30 a.m. and I just forgot to mention it. I think a) she was only pregnant with 1 baby, but something about the immortal virus made the baby grow at an accelerated rate (think Renesmee ::shudder::) b) the reference to Murder House wasn't intended to tie her back into AHS S1. The bathtub has been a constant feature across all the seasons (and we've yet to see it in this one). We've seen Pepper be placed in the asylum, but that's the only other overlap where one character moved backward from one season to another (that I can remember). I think it just made a really cool way for Murphy to tie the seasons together, which he's fond of doing, and we won't know exactly what it all means until the final season of the series, whenever that may be.
Which makes this all incredibly more intriguing.
Mellie is just as culpable in letting Rowan free, but the fact that getting her father out of jail was Olivia's line of defense against having to marry Fitz and/or testify against him? That's...that's jacked up. And we can't really discuss Mellie's repercussions from this yet as the episode didn't focus on her. This week? Game on.
Yeah, so the thing about Round Tables is that they're not designed to be neutral and unbiased. We're actually all chipping in to have a discussion about our likes and dislikes from the previous episode. We would love it if you do the same here in the comments! We actually welcome the discussion!
I really, truly, seriously hope that this was the death of Francis Laurie M. foretold in her interviews. If they kill him again later, unless he dies some valiant death just as Mary's about to have her head chopped off or something, I'm going to be super irritated.
I think Narcisse really, really wants to be a good man for Lola. He WANTS to live up to her ideal. But I think his way of operating is too deeply engrained in who he is, so he's going to screw up. A lot.
Delphine made it clear the last time she saved someone for Bash that there is always a price. It's not possible to save one person without losing another. Since Marie de Guise dropped dead at the end of the episode, I'm assuming she was the price Mary had to pay for saving Francis.
