Let us start this Originals recap with an unpopular opinion: we are on team Marcel. However, we canNot deny that Marcel’s decision basically confirmed his inescapable death, but we predict that Marcel kills every single Original before the final fade to black next week.
The Originals season 3 must end on Marcel winning the battle, and surviving on until next season. However, with Freya remaining alive, that leaves the door open for her finding a way to resurrect them all (hopefully including Kol) next season. When they return, three years and three months later, Marcel will own New Orleans. At least until either The Originals season 4 midseason finale, or season finale.
Warning: The Originals season 3 spoilers ahead. Please do not continue if you do not want to know what happened on The Originals season 3 episode 21, “Give ‘Em Hell Kid.”
Two separate heartbreaking funerals take place. The first one involves Klaus, Hayley, and Elijah mourning Cami. The second one involves Kol, Vincent, Josh, and Marcel mourning Davina.
After the funeral, Kol heads home to scorn Freya. He then starts to pack to move far away, but Davina’s angry spirit attacks him. Meanwhile, Vincent fills Kinney (remember him?) in on everything paranormal.
Kinney helps Vincent find a place to cross over to the other side. Vincent wants to finally stop the Ancestors for good. He has just the weapon to do it. Kol shows up demanding to cross-over as well.
Josh acts as their link to the human realm. Once they cross over, they instantly find Davina, who says a proper goodbye to Kol. She also helps them take down the Ancestors. She breaks their ties to the human world, which means the Ancestor crypt explodes. Kinney then shows up to thank Vincent for telling him the truth. Could this mean more Kinney in season 4? Will he replace Cami as the only human among the monsters?
Marcel informs Josh that he wants to take the serum and destroy the Mikaelsons. Josh doesn’t think it is a good idea, so Marcel doesn’t take it. Later, Klaus shows up to try to make amends. He reassures Marcel that they’re family. They then take a trip down memory lane. Klaus’s plans to emotionally reach Marcel doesn’t seem to work.
Freya uses the last of her Ancestor power surge to see the full prophecy. She shows Elijah it as well. It reveals that Marcel is the real threat. She then figures out that Vincent must have given him the serum.
Elijah interrupts Marcel and Klaus’s bonding moment to tell Marcel to give them the serum or else. Klaus continues to try to get through to him. However, Elijah doesn’t want to take chances. He rips out Marcel’s heart.
Later, Hayley tells Klaus to forgive Elijah, but at the moment, he is too devastated to do it. Hayley then goes to tell Elijah to forgive himself. They share a kiss.
Josh and Vincent (super randomly) head to the Mikaelsons home. Klaus informs them that Marcel is dead. Vincent seems unaffected but Josh looks like he is about to break. He then tells Vincent that Marcel never took the serum. Vincent says that actually he did. He pretended not to, so that the Mikaelsons wouldn’t see it coming.
Marcel wakes up in an ocean.
