Welcome back to Humor Nation. The Originals is connected to the Vampire Diaries, set in the Universe, and it features the notorious Mikaelson Family who first appeared in the Vampire Diaries. At one point characters such as Klaus and Elijah became more popular than the Salvatores, this inspired the show creators to launch a spin-off solely focusing on the Originals AKA Mikaelsons. The show takes place in the city of New Orleans, the story starts when Klaus comes to know that the werewolf Hayley is carrying his child. He must now decide between trying to be a king and a father. As the show is set in the Vampire Diaries Universe, it follows the same rules of the lore related to different Supernatural species. There’s also a continuity as the show Originals follows the events of the Vampire Diaries. Its first season aired when TVD was airing its 5th season.
So Take A Look At Some Things That Don’t Make Sense About The Originals
If you know Elijah then you know this is a character who values family over everything else. He believes that family is the ultimate power. Elijah Mikaelson has lived majority of his life protecting his brother Nikklaus and trying to keep the family together. In Originals Season 1, Elijah gives Sophie that Agnes won’t be harmed at the hands of Klaus, but we are surprised when we see Elijah himself dispose off Agnes for going against his family. In Season 3, he instinctively ends up eliminating Marcel due to the looming prophecy which threatened his family’s existence. So it’s quite clear that it doesn’t matter who you are, if you go against the Mikaelson Family, Elijah Mikaelson is sure to exact revenge on you.
But here’s something that raises lots of eyebrows, why didn’t Elijah go after Elena and Jeremy who were responsible for the demise of his brother Kol Mikaelson. And that’s not the sad part, Elijah actually displayed sympathy to Elena Gilbert after learning the passing of Jeremy. He scolded Katherine who was responsible for Jeremy’s demise instead of thanking her. It just doesn’t make sense that Elijah didn’t avenge the demise of two of his brothers and he sympathized with the woman who played a role in their demises. Of course, the only explanation that makes sense is that Elena is the main heroine of the Vampire Diaries. It was the plot armor which ascertained her survival, but it definitely was contrary to the character of the Noble Original.
It wasn’t just Elijah. The Mystic Falls Gang has caused troubles for Klaus, messed up his plans, but he too spared them. Damon managed to got the better of Kol Mikaelson which doesn’t make any sense. Like any Original could have completely destroyed the Mystic Falls Gang without breaking a sweat.
