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!

It. Is. Here. The long-awaited first trailer for Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast starring Dan Stevens and Emma Watson is available to watch now!

Disney invites us to be their guest in this first tantalizing teaser for Beauty and the Beast, one of the most highly anticipated live-action remakes on their slate:

Anticipation has been high for Disney’s live-action retelling of their animated classic, and by all accounts the trailer suggests that the new Beauty and the Beast, hitting theaters in 2017, won’t disappoint.

The trailer does a lot to up the excitement factor, playing on our existing knowledge of the classic story, and teasing the arrival of Emma Watson’s Belle (damn you Disney, you know what we want!).

It opens with the castle (very Hogwarts-looking, no?), as we see iconic imagery from the Disney movie. We hear the voices of Ian McKellen and Ewan McGregor (Cogsworth and Lumiere), see the portrait of the prince, and finally, the rose — and Belle, barely visible, watching it in nervous anticipation. It looks like it still has all its petals, so we’d guess that this might be the first time she sees it.

We imagine the full reveal of Belle in the dress will be huge — we’ll keep you posted, as we’re sure that bombshell is dropping soon.

Beauty and the Beast opens March 2017 and stars Emma Watson as Belle, Dan Stevens as the Beast, Luke Evans as Gaston, Josh Gad as LeFou, Emma Thompson as Mrs Potts, Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette, Kevin Kline as Maurice, Audra McDonald as the Wardrobe, Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, and Sir Ian McKellen as Cogsworth.

What did you think about our first look at the Beauty and the Beast live-action movie? Did it live up to your expectations?! Or was there just not enough Belle? Share your thoughts in the comments!

‘Adventures of Supergirl’ #9: The Facet mystery deepens

And Kara hates mysteries.

2:00 pm EDT, May 22, 2016

Adventures of Supergirl #9 gives us our first look at Facet but inspires more questions than gives answers.

Adventures of Supergirl #9 keeps its creative team and picks up where the previous issue left off, with Kara and Alex underground and facing off against bots from Fort Rozz. While the sisters fight off attacks, Kara muses about hating mysteries. She reflects that Clark likes them because they taught him to reveal the hidden truths about others while Kara doesn’t like them because she wants things — and people — to be straightforward.

The mystery is, of course, who is behind everything that has led Kara to this moment. The mastermind? Facet. While Kara and Alex are fighting, Alex is grabbed to serve as bait, bringing Kara face to face with Facet. Though Facet speaks a language Kara doesn’t understand, she does recognize Facet’s uniform as belonging to a guard on Fort Rozz.

Adventures of Supergirl #9 page 1

Kara attacks Facet but breaks her hand. Uh oh. She tries to use her heat vision, but Facet deflects it. Kara is overwhelmed by Facet’s counterattacks, and Facet has the bots grab Kara. When Facet removes her mask, she reveals a reflective silver face and says she wants to begin Kara’s training to make her Krypton’s finest, like Facet herself. Facet tells Kara to ask her mother about her, but the conversation is interrupted when Alex sets off an explosion.

In the chaos, Kara grabs Alex and flees. They reach the surface, mostly still in tact, and Kara says they should go speak to Alura, so I assume she’s going to speak to the Alura AI at the DEO. The mystery that Kara hates has come around to not only encompass Facet but also her mother, which frustrates Kara to no end.

A good portion of this issue is action, as Kara and Alex fight the Fort Rozz robots and Kara faces off against Facet. Both Kara and Alex are left the worse for wear after the encounter. While we know there won’t be anything too serious happening to our main characters since the comic ties into the television series, the action sequences were still quite engaging, particularly in terms of the art.

Adventures of Supergirl #9 page 2

As with the previous issue, we see a fair amount of Kryptonian as the Fort Rozz robots and Facet speak. However, Facet also speaks a language that Kara didn’t recognize that was represented by squiggly lines. This only enhances Kara’s frustration with the mystery that underlies the entire issue — and the comic as a whole, as we learn that everything ties together after all.

With four issues left, I assume Kara will get some answers from the Alura AI about Facet. This new villain tying into the life of Alura makes a lot of sense considering the television series spent quite a lot of time exploring the consequences of Alura’s actions on Krypton. As her daughter, Kara has had to face many who held grudges against Alura for sentencing them to Fort Rozz so thematically, this issue of Adventures of Supergirl ties in nicely with the series in that way.

Reading Adventures of Supergirl every other week is like catching up with a good friend you only see every now and then — especially now that Supergirl is on break for the summer. I look forward to seeing where the story goes from here and finding out just who Facet is and why she’s taken such an interest in Kara.

Adventures of Supergirl #10 will be released on Monday, May 30.

Fred Armisen hosted the season 41 finale of SNL with musical guest Courtney Barnett. He also brought along a couple of familiar friends as well.

SNL kicked off its season finale with a bang using Kate McKinnon and Larry David as Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. In what was maybe the best cold open of the season, Hillary and Bernie bickered back and forth about Hillary’s insurmountable delegate lead in the Democratic primary race. The sketch was particularly enjoyable as the two of them danced through the halls of Studio 8H before throwing to the credits with the entire cast.

Fred Armisen’s opening monologue was also one of the best opening monologues of the season. Fred performed a part of his fictional one-man show, and exaggerated just about every single thing you could imagine. The monologue was not only hilarious but one of the most unique monologues ever given on SNL.

The first sketch of the night featured a couple of breaks of character as Cecily Strong, Fred Armisen and Kyle Mooney played Native American explorers who take things a little bit too far.

To the delight of the audience, SNL brought back a Digital Sketch with none other than Andy Samberg himself. Samberg is set to star in the new movie Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping.

Maya Rudolph, who has an upcoming variety show with Martin Short, stopped by Weekend Update to play the recent ousted President of Brazil. Maya can do no wrong, and this sketch was yet another example of her many hilarious accents.

The funniest sketch of the night had to go to Fred Armisen’s character Regine. Regine and her boyfriend played by SNL alum Jason Sudeikis are outlandish, rude and inconsiderate: the perfect recipe for tons of character breaks. This is a must-see sketch!

SNL will return for its 42nd season this fall. There is no word yet as of which cast members may be leaving the show. Details around casting usually happens throughout the summer months as the show gears up for its fall premiere.
