As the sire war heats up Aurora arrives to torment Klaus in The Originals 3×05 “The Axeman’s Letter” episode!
In The Originals 3×05 “The Axeman’s Letter” episode Elijah confronts Tristan as Aurora arrives to torment Klaus as the sire war heats up.
The Axeman of New Orleans was a real serial killer from May 1918 to October 1919. He was also featured on American Horror Story. His victims were attacked with an axe, often belonging to the victim. A possible theory to his murders was that he was attempting to promote jazz music, since his letter indicated he would spare a victim if they were playing jazz in their homes. He, or perhaps she, was never caught, and the murders ended as mysteriously as they began. The letter he wrote on March 13, 1919, indicated he was from hell, and immortal.
Hell, March 13, 1919
They have never caught me and they never will. They have never seen me, for I am invisible, even as the ether that surrounds your earth. I am not a human being, but a spirit and a demon from the hottest hell. I am what you Orleanians and your foolish police call the Axeman.
When I see fit, I shall come and claim other victims. I alone know whom they shall be. I shall leave no clue except my bloody axe, besmeared with blood and brains of he whom I have sent below to keep me company.
If you wish you may tell the police to be careful not to rile me. Of course, I am a reasonable spirit. I take no offense at the way they have conducted their investigations in the past. In fact, they have been so utterly stupid as to not only amuse me, but His Satanic Majesty, Francis Josef, etc. But tell them to beware. Let them not try to discover what I am, for it were better that they were never born than to incur the wrath of the Axeman. I don‘t think there is any need of such a warning, for I feel sure the police will always dodge me, as they have in the past. They are wise and know how to keep away from all harm.
Undoubtedly, you Orleanians think of me as a most horrible murderer, which I am, but I could be much worse if I wanted to. If I wished, I could pay a visit to your city every night. At will I could slay thousands of your best citizens, for I am in close relationship with the Angel of Death.
Now, to be exact, at 12:15 (earthly time) on next Tuesday night, I am going to pass over New Orleans. In my infinite mercy, I am going to make a little proposition to you people. Here it is:
I am very fond of jazz music, and I swear by all the devils in the nether regions that every person shall be spared in whose home a jazz band is in full swing at the time I have just mentioned. If everyone has a jazz band going, well, then, so much the better for you people. One thing is certain and that is that some of your people who do not jazz it on Tuesday night (if there be any) will get the axe.
Well, as I am cold and crave the warmth of my native Tartarus, and it is about time I leave your earthly home, I will cease my discourse. Hoping that thou wilt publish this, that it may go well with thee, I have been, am and will be the worst spirit that ever existed either in fact or realm of fancy.
Has the ethereal axeman come back to haunt the inhabitants of New Orleans again? Or is it a vampire sired by Klaus, Elijah, or Rebekah?
