Download The Originals Season 5, Episode 10. First, a recap…
fact, let’s just break this episode down death by death:
IVY | I was pretty sure we’d seen the last of Vincent’s lady love last week, so imagine my excitement when Ivy appeared fully conscious at the top of the hour… followed by my sense of dread when I realized  that she and her fellow witches must have died with vampire blood in their systems, and  Ivy’s the type who would rather die a witch than “live” as a bloodsucker. Sure enough, that’s exactly what she told Vincent, staving off his impending grief by assuring him that the ancestral well is a beautiful place to spend eternity. (Frankly, “honeysuckle” isn’t the scented candle I’d choose from Bath & Body Works, but to each their own.) Unfortunately, Ivy’s faith was a little misguided; as Vincent explained, the witches of New Orleans have been drawing so much magic from the well that its inhabitants are… well… remember those soulless goobers Ursula kept trapped in her cave in The Little Mermaid? Those are basically what the ancestors have become. In the end, Vincent convinced his fellow spell casters to relinquish their claim to the well, freeing the ancestors and allowing Ivy to truly cross over in peace
JOSH | This one hurt a lot more than I expected, even if I started mentally preparing myself when a handsome stranger hit on Josh at work, only to be turned down because he reminded him too much of Aiden. (Anytime someone starts talking about a dead ex they haven’t mentioned in a while, it means one of two things: Either that character is about to join their loved one in the afterlife, or the ex is about to return from the dead — and the way this season is going, my money was on the former.) Sure enough, Josh was stabbed with a needle full of Marcel’s fatal venom during a rescue mission. Saving Marcel cost Josh his life, and you’d better believe I teared up at his and Marcel’s respective goodbyes. Of course, I should have saved the waterworks for Josh’s very last scene, which reunited him with Aiden (best cameo!) in the great beyond..
