Welcome to Humor Nation. Many people were disappointed how the Original vampires who are supposed to be one of the most powerful beings in the Universe were outmaneuvered by Elena and the gang. Especially Kol and Finn who died as an indirect result of Elena Gilbert. It was lazy writing at best, but in Originals, these characters got justice. We got to learn about Kol’s past, why he is known as the wildest Mikaelson. Kol returned as a witch in the body of Kaleb and formed a relationship with Davina which proved to be his redemption. Kol Mikaelson always stood out as the black sheep and when he found someone who loves him truly, he didn’t let her down. We are glad Kolvina got a much deserved happy ending after numerous separations over the course of five seasons.
Marcel was a new addition to the Vampire Diaries Universe. Even though we were introduced to him in the Originals backdoor pilot on TVD. But Marcel really came onto in his own in the Originals. His strained and dysfunctional relationship with the Mikaelson family especially Klaus really came into play. He always tried to live outside the shadow of Klaus Mikaelson and he did manage to do that. Marcel ruled a city much better than Klaus ever did. He formed meaningful and long lasting relationships with family, he has friends, something which Mikaelsons lack a lot. Finally, he ended up with Rebekah Mikaelson.
Another new addition was Freya, the long lost sister who returned to save her family. She quickly became one of the baddest female characters in the TVD Universe. Despite looking all sweet and beautiful. she can be very ruthless and can go to extreme lengths for her family. The moment when she chose to sacrifice an innocent Davina shocked the viewers as it was brutal, but necessary. Luckily, it wasn’t the final end for Davina as she was brought back to life in Season 4 by Hollow. One of the best characters on the show was Cami who met a tragic fate as a result of being entangled with Klaus Mikaelson. She was the voice of reason and conscience for Klaus, she saw him for truly who he was, and called him out when he was in the wrong without any fear.
