The Originals season 1 episode 7 “Bloodletting” aired tonight and Haley went missing, Klaus has a dangerous encounter and Davina makes a surprising connection. Check out our recap!

The Douchebag Returns
-The episode starts with a gathering at Marcel’s. It’s fight night!
-Apparently everyone there is a vampire.
-Whoever wins the fight will get a daylight ring. Josh clearly wants one. And he’s adorable. So he should get one by default.
-Klaus snaps the neck of the girl who was winning. DAYUM.
-Elijah appears, and they’re looking for Haley.
-Marcel claims that he doesn’t have Haley.
-We see Haley in the back seat of a car. ….where is this girl?!
-Marcel always shows respect to his elders. Bull.
-Marcel then hands Klaus Sabine, who he’s allowing to help them find Haley. …like they need her! Psh!
-Tyler apparently kidnapped Haley from her back yard. Hmmph.
-He’s been asking questions, and apparently Haley’s birthmark means she comes from a high class werewolf family, and Tyler has taken her to what’s left of their home.
-Random werewolf man takes Haley into the house
-Sabine’s locator spell sees that Haley is deep in the bayou.
-Now Marcel and Elijah think she left on her own. NO, DON’T BELIEVE IT GUYS.
-In a meeting with Josh, Marcel confronts him with knowledge that Josh was at Klaus’s mansion.
-Klaus explains to Elijah that he met Tyler in Mystic Falls and turned him into his first hybrid. Tyler ran, and so Klaus killed his mother. …they’re really not making Klaus likable.
-Klaus plans on killing Tyler. GOOD RIDDANCE.

-Marcel brings Josh over to Davina. He wants Davina to wipe him from compulsion, and reverse it so Josh is Marcel’s minion instead. Poor baby!
-Tyler is NOT the werewolf that has been watching Haley.
-Tyler is planning on killing the baby and sticks Haley with a needle to take away her blood. He then injects her blood into mysterious hot man’s neck.
-Rebekah is upset that Marcel used her. Marcel followed her to the plantation. WELL DUH, DARLING. Honey, you have to stop loving so easily.
-Rebekah wants Marcel to prove he’s not as manipulative as Klaus. He tells her to follow him.
-Apparently a witch that Tyler ran with had psychic visions that the baby’s blood will turn werewolves into Hybrids, and Klaus will build an army with them.
-Tyler doesn’t think Klaus wants the baby, he just wants an army.
-Douchebag then forces hot man to feed on Haley. Double douchebag.
-Hot man is now a hybrid. ….damnit.

He Just Wants to Meet Boys
-Davina needs Josh to think of something else.
-Aww Josh is only 20! AND HE’S GAY. Honey, darling, come to Kyle. He just wants to meet boys. KYLE’S RIGHT HERE, BBY.
-Davina is convinced that once she destroys the witches’ magic she’ll have her normal life back. …oh no, girl. That’s not gunna happen.
-Tyler was about to kill Haley, and SHE STABS HIM IN THE CROTCH.
-After a fight with new hot man hybrid, Tyler rips out hot guy’s heart (aww) and goes after Haley, who’s run away.
-Elijah meets Haley in the woods. Yay!
-And Klaus meets Tyler. DIE, DOUCHE, DIE.

Rebekah: Gullible Girl.
-Tyler runs away from Klaus, but he chases after him.
-Marcel brings Rebekah to The Garden, where he buries vampires who break his rules. Apparently a long time ago it was the foundation area of the house that Marcel designed for Rebekah. He was going to wait for Rebekah to return, so he now buries people who betrayed him there.
-Marcel gives Rebekah a choice: Between a brother who takes away her happiness, and the man who wants to give her everything she ever wanted.
-Rebekah looks like she’s falling for it. NO, DARLING. NOO.
-Haley thinks that Klaus’s intentions are impure, and explains to Elijah. But she realizes that maybe the hybrid was sired to her instead? Oooh that’d be so much better. Queen of New Orleans!

He Should’ve Died
-During the fight with Klaus, he almost kills Tyler but because Tyler WANTS to die, Klaus doesn’t want to. NO. IDIOT. KILL HIM.
-Rebekah explains to Marcel that if you kill an Original every vampire that they’ve ever turned will also die forever.
-So Marcel wants to bury Klaus in the Garden.
-Rebekah is falling for Marcel. Stop it, Rebekah!
-Oh apparently hot hybrid’s name was Dwaine. I like hot hybrid better.
-Elijah explains that Tyler thinks Klaus already knew about the baby’s powers.
-Klaus is hurt that they always assume the worst. Elijah points out that Klaus never showed concern for Haley.
-Klaus explains that everything thinks he’s a liar and a bastard, and he’s pissed. So he decides to play the part of the man they think he is, he bites Elijah with his werewolf fangs so Elijah will start going crazy.

Haley’s Actual Name Isn’t Haley
-Davina has finally taken all of Klaus’s compulsions out of Josh.
-Marcel wants Davina to make Josh forget about her, but Josh doesn’t want her to. He likes talking to her, and he owes her his life.
-Neither of them are normal! Aww! They can be best friends! YES! They pinky swore on it. ADORBZ. Now, Josh, come to Kyle.
-Elijah stays with Haley in the area where her family was supposedly living.
-Haley doesn’t think Elijah should compare himself to Klaus. Correct! Don’t do it!
-As Haley steps out for air, she finds a book on the porch that was randomly left there.It’s a bible, with a family tree that goes back generations.
-Haley thinks she’s the last entry, Andrea Labonair, born June 6 1991. That’s her birthday!
-Rebekah goes back to Klaus, he’s drunk and explains what happened.
-Now that Elijah has abandoned Klaus, he needs Rebekah’s help for his plan against Marcel. Who better to spy on Marcel than the girl he clearly loves?
-Klaus is onto her and her run ins! He wants to know if Marcel is plotting against him, which he is.
-However, Rebekah doesn’t tell him anything. In fact, she lies and says he’s not plotting. BITCH, HE’S YOUR BROTHER.
-In the last scene, Tyler is meeting with Marcel. He tells Marcel about how Haley is carrying Klaus’s child. Now Marcel knows the secret!

What did you think of ‘The Originals’ season 1, episode 7 ‘Bloodletting’?

Check out the preview for next week’s episode of The Originals, “The River in Reverse” and let us know what you thought about the episode in the comments below!

  • lorepottter

    I want to kill Tyler too

  • Christina

    Just a side note: We found out Josh was gay in the first episode we saw him in. Marcel was deciding whether to kill Josh or his female friend and referred to him as gay.

      Yes but that was when he was a throw away character and I didn’t remember. BUT I SO HAPPY

  • http://www.twitter.com/BlueHuMac BlueHuMac

    I loved the scenes between Josh and Davina. Can they be BFFs already?! And NOBODY touches Josh! Davina won’t let anything bad happen to him!

    Hahahahaha love the comments Kyle

    Kyle always has the best reactions! I want Tyler dead now. No question to it. I liked him during his werewolf stint on TVD, then once he was a hybrid, not so much. He was just there but not there and I didn’t care for him. Then he dumped Caroline last week and that made me mad, but she can always do way better.. Now he shows up and does this on The Originals? Oh hell no. I want him gone.

  • Rav

    ok you guys need to stop hating on Tyler and appreciate what his character brings to this show. Tyler has a great deal of motivation to take Klaus down and its hard to not root for him seeing all that Klaus did to cause him such pain. If anyone is a douche here its Klaus. That being said, i’m not stupid and i realize that Klaus will inevitable kill Tyler now that he has sided with Marcel, but the upcoming conflicts between him and Tyler would be quite entertaining and i hope that you guys aren’t so stupidly blinded by unreasonable hatred toward his character to even realize this.

  • Shadowstare

    A. I hate Tyler’s plan of kidnapping Haley and killing the baby to prevent Klaus from creating a hybrid army idea. Would Klaus do it…yes, but don’t put Haley in harms way to do it.
    B. There is only one way to stop an original, or any other flavor of immortal being: DISSOCIATION. It stopped Mikel for centuries. It stopped Klaus for a while. It stopped Silas and everybody else who drunk the immortality potion that Qetsiyah cooked up. That’s it. If Tyler wanted to kill at Klaus, that’s the way to do it. I just need him to figure that out. But I suspect the writers won’t play that card for a while.

    • Rav

      if you mean the dessication spell then yea thats true, but i don’t think Tyler wants to kill Klaus or dessicate him, he wants to make Klaus suffer a great loss and experience that pain just like Tyler did when he lost his hybrid friends and his mom. Going after Hayley was the only way to do that, other than maybe killing one of his original siblings…either way maybe Tyler wanted some payback against Hayley for her betrayal which caused the death of his 12 hybrid friends, so i guess he figured 2 birds 1 stone? haha

  • Gabry

    Hey, I understand that the writers of TO articles are Klaus fans, but Hypable is a news site, and I was kind of shocked to see Tyler referred to as “douchebag” and not even by his name a couple of times in this recap. I get that it was probably written in high excitement, but that’s no reason for that much hatred — that’s the kind of thing I would expect to see in the comments. I’m kind of embarrassed for you.

  • Antara Chowdhury

    I certainly don’t like Tyler, especially after what he’s done to Hayley, but I find it appalling that Tyler is called a douchebag and Rebekah is called a bitch, yet Klaus’ abhorrent actions aren’t called out. I get that Klaus is a great, entertaining villain, but I hate when people love him yet dislike characters for going against him. Klaus KILLED Tyler’s mother and his friends. While Tyler is going about his vengeance completely wrong, his motivations are understandable. As for Rebekah, Klaus daggered her and left her in a coffin for a century. Klaus is terrible to his siblings – in this episode alone, he bit Elijah, and commanded Rebekah to help him bring down Marcel. “BITCH, HE’S YOUR BROTHER.” – yes, but clearly Klaus has no regard for his family, so I don’t see why Rebekah shouldn’t plot against her brother.

    • http://tyrionical.tumblr.com/ Kyle

      I meant bitch in an endearing way. Like how I tell my best friend “Bitch, get in the car.” when we go shopping.

      Also you’re right: Klaus is also clearly a douchebag.

  • Fifi._insane

    The character Tyler is always getting critism like your ‘boring’ on tvd ,but i feel like he’s actually brought a lot of drama with him on Originals & for once i’m actually enjoying his presence & i still really cant see why he’s getting so much hate .although i aggree with you Kyle that he’ a complete utter douche and so is Klaus, but i feel the difference is klaus more likeable to you people who think why klaus bad sins are not pointed out .
    And also agree that Rebekah is making wrong decision,but dont you think it understandable because her bro a total douche to her that she’ll consider making such a sickly decision,and i reaally blood dissapointed by that the ‘noble’and the ‘unexpected’ good/bad guy Elijah that he assumes Klaus only care about the baby for power just because he act like douche almost 247,its understandable why a person might think that,I just would’ve like Elijah to see the good in him so hopefully one day he may magically start to redeem himself a tiny bit tho coz i likey a bad boy :’P

    • fifi_insane

      I wanna point out the differences klaus&Caroline share,Caroline will do whats not expected of her and klaus will play the role hes been give,sorry for this irrelevant commennt:)

  • Rebecca Chan

    Even though I’m a bit tired of Tyler’s character, I want him to at least have a fighting chance against Klaus. That scene where Klaus refuses to kill Tyler made him seem very sad and pathetic; it was a letdown because Klaus had such an upperhand on him.

    This was probably the most horribly written and biased recap I have ever read on the internet. I expected a lot better from Hypable and it is disappointing this recap was even posted.
