Who Will Be Dying in The Originals “An Unblinking Death” rerun?

The Originals press release for “An Unblinking Death” sounds ominous. The title indicates that this may be an expected death. If it’s not an expected death, maybe it’s somebody nobody cares about.

Father Kieran hasn’t been doing too well since he was hexed. Fortunately the witch who hexed him had her head ripped off. Talk about karma! Todd Stashwick, who plays Father Kieran, is great in this role and it’s sad knowing his episodes are numbered. In spite of Klaus trying to use his blood to save him, the poor Father is still going mad.

There have been many hints about Father Kieran‘s impending demise, including casting calls for clergy, mourners to attend a funeral, and musicians for an Irish band to play at a funeral. Father Kieran has also seemed to be preparing Cami to take over for him after he dies. He told her that O’Connells have been helping to keep peace in the Quarter for decades. Hint, hint, Cami, you’re next!

Producer Julie Plec was her usual cryptic self when she was asked about the future of Father Kieran.

It’s definitely not going to be an easy thing to overcome, you know, hexes and dark objects and all that witchy business – sometimes you wonder what’s reversible and what isn’t, so we’ll have to wait and see on that one.

The title may also be referring to the “horrific explosion” that will occur in the bayou. Explosions usuall mean death, and while Elijah, Hayley, and Jackson may be upset if some werewolves die, witches or vampires probably wouldn’t blink twice.

As the last few episodes of season 1 continues, the body count will continue going up, especially in the finale episode “From a Cradle to a Grave” which will re-air Thursday, September 25th, 2014!

THE BREAKING POINT – Desperate to help Kieran (guest star Todd Stashwick), Cami (Leah Pipes) insists on an unconventional treatment, but her good intentions lead Kieran to a violent episode. After Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Elijah (Daniel Gillies) disagree over the best way to handle the Crescent Wolves, Elijah makes a trip to the bayou, where he is witness to a horrific explosion that only adds to the hatred and mistrust among the communities. While Jackson (guest star Nathan Parsons) and Elijah work to save the wounded, Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) learns a surprising piece of her family history from Marcel (Charles Michael Davis).

Ashley Lyle and Bart Nickerson wrote this episode and Kellie Cyrus directed it.
