No, it wasn't. But that is something he conveniently always seems to want to forget whenever he decides he really, REALLY hates Mellie instead of just hates her a little bit.
I think Klaus and Freya had some of my favorite moments last night.
You're right about killing the three sires and eliminating the threat, provided, that is, that the threat is a hidden weapon. If it's a person or creature, killing Lucien, Tristan, and Aurora won't stop it from coming.
I think the thing we're supposed to take away from last night is that Elijah didn't intend to create a group of bullies. He wanted to make a special society, but he started it with Tristan, who was already a bully and saw himself as elite and above the rest. The group Elijah created got out of hand and he walked away from it.
Ugh. I don't even want to think about that. I cannot lose both Glenn AND Daryl this season. But the producers haven't exactly DONE anything with Daryl except let him ride his motorcycle in a giant circle, so...
They weren't just regular old witches. They were siphoners, like Kai, which meant that when they died with vampire blood in their systems, they had an endless supply of magic to draw from since magic was used to create vampires. Normal witches, like Bonnie or Jo, couldn't have done that.
It does feel a little like a marathon, I suppose, if you're watching one right after the other. I have a bit of a break in between while I write the TVD review. We know Elena won't be back in episode 5, but yes, I'm ready to move on from that and stop mentioning her every 10 minutes.
I think they CAN be killed (we've seen it) it's just difficult to do. That's what's intriguing about the Phoenix stone. I believe it holds the key to getting rid of the Heretics.
I'm not discarding Elizabeth completely, just in the premiere as we're trying to figure out where everyone is after the hiatus, you know? Too much of the premiere jumped us straight into Elizabeth's court when we barely know Elizabeth. I would've preferred a slower build.
And I do agree with you that Mellie cannot admit that she's a vicious monster who is mostly only out for herself. However, I DO think that even up until the point that she found out about his affair with Olivia, Mellie loved Fitz and didn't just love what Fitz provided for her, which was the opportunity to be FLOTUS. She might have been cold and distant, and she had a hand in Defiance, but I really think that was the beginning of her...descent. When she realized her husband had fallen in love with someone else, she decided to take what she could while she could. It's cold and manipulative, but it's not out of the realm of ordinary except that we're dealing with the leader of the free world and his wife.
