Here it is — the one scene from last night's episode of The Originals that you absolutely need to watch. In which Josh the vampire meets up with the guy of his dreams... and there's a complication.

And meanwhile, Klaus goes up against his father and wins — but spares Mikael's life, largely due to Camille's piss-poor psychology. Oh, and Kol double crosses Davina, who still thinks Kol is just a sweet witch boy from Blighty.
