What was your favorite quote or scene from The Originals Season 2 Episode 8?

Leigh: I liked Josh alluding to his Romeo and Romeo scenario. They are a cute couple and he was right about how handsome Aiden was when showing the pics to Davina. Too bad she used their first meeting as a rouse to escape!

Heather: I can't stop laughing over Klaus's "such hubris" line when Davina stormed the compound. Pot, meet kettle.

Miranda: I L-O-V-E-D Klaus and Koleb talking at the end. Of all the familial interactions happening right now, those two win everything for me. Maybe it's the accents, maybe it's the dashing good looks, maybe it's Daniel Sharman. Whatever it is, it's totally working.

How will the family help Elijah?

Leigh: They need witch power. Probably Koleb and Davina working in his little tomb lab. Maybe making out. Just sayin...

Heather: Agreed. And I am all for Kol and Davina "making magic" together. 

Miranda: While I'm definitely down for Kol and Davina getting their magic on, I would love it equally as much if Koleb and Finncent put aside their family hate and came together to save their brother.

Do you want Rebekah to return permanently in someone else's body?

Leigh: Absolutely not. Rebekah is Claire Holt and Claire Holt only.

Heather: GOD, NO. But what a twist that was - disturbing on so many levels. Poor Cami. And how messed up for Finn to have feelings for Cami, only to know Esther has plans to put his sister in his crush's body? ESTHER IS THE WORST.

Miranda: Esther IS the worst, Heather! That little reveal was just...ugh. That woman. But I'll go against the grain here and say that given the success of Koleb and Finncent, it could work to have Rebekah back but in someone else's body. It would be totally weird, but it's quite an ingenious way to recast a character when an actor wants or needs to leave a series.

What did you think about Davina's scheming tonight?

Leigh: Davina is really growing into herself. She's coming a long way since being the girl in the attic. I'm proud of her. I just hope she learns that sometimes things need to come before revenge.  

Heather: Diabolical!Davina is my favorite Davina, and I love that at least one of our "heroes" is decidedly anti-Klaus.  

Miranda: Oooh, I love her. So very much. I do love that she seems to realize that sometimes putting aside grudges is necessary for the greater good, but I really, really love her guts with Klaus.

React to Hayley and Jackson's plan to unite the wolves.

Leigh: Well intentioned, poorly planned. Jackson is a fine (looking) man and will probably make a good husband, but she isn't in love with him. I'm still impressed with her initiative though. I don't get why Elijah is ignoring her this season. What am I missing?

Heather: I'm just so UGH on the whole marriage aspect. I do love Hayley stepping up and being a leader, though. I just wish it wasn't tied into marrying Jackson.

Miranda: It's sort of bizarre and out of the blue to me, and convenient to create (more) drama between Hayley and Elijah. I like the idea of it and I do find it sort of romantic, as Julie Plec called it, but I doubt we'll see it come to fruition. I've been wrong before though.

The Originals Season 2 Episode 8 Quotes

[to Kol and Finn] I'd prefer you both to join me against our mother, but I'll happily settle for one or the other. Either way, if you continue to defy me, your lives will be reduced to an unending sequence of agonizing torture. So, which is it to be?
