The CW has released a description for the May 6th episode of The Originals.
The episode is called "The Battle of New Orleans" and here is how they describe it:
BLOOD IS IN THE AIR — Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Elijah (Daniel Gillies) enact a plan to collect the sacred stones needed by Genevieve (guest star Elyse Levesque) in order to forever change the fates of Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) and the werewolf community. Realizing that Klaus’ plan will lead to the extermination of all French Quarter vampires, Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) rallies an army determined to take down the Mikaelsons and regain control of the city. Davina (Danielle Campbell) warns Josh (guest star Steven Krueger) to leave town as she is forced to make a fateful decision that will turn the tide of war. Meanwhile, Francesca (guest star Peta Sargent) threatens Cami (Leah Pipes), who attempts to decipher a code that results in a surprising revelation among the city’s factions.
Jeffrey Hunt directed the episode written by Charlie Charbonneau & Michael Narducci

I love reading other people's reviews. This one was hilarious! I agree with most of what she's saying! This is Shannon from spoilertv.com
Well.....that was intense. And the episode was good and all, but i'm disappointed. Why?? B/c everyone i wanted dead is SOMEHOW still alive!! And the ones i wanted alive are suffering horribly. This was a war with NO actual casualties!! (I mean actually killed off in the episode) I mean WTF?? Ok first off GENEVIEVE IS AN EVIL b***! I can't stress that enough. Get this big headed ginger OFF MY SCREEN! Ok, got that out the way. Now for other stuff that matters.
Loved Davina and Josh as always. The scene with them sitting on the bench in broad daylight, was adorable. Josh had me laughing. Checking out the guy jogging, talking about going away. Haha I love him. And i loved how he saif "Seriousness is your default, that's why i'm here to lighten you up." Haha it's so true. I don't like that he's dying either. Bad writers! Bad writers! I hope he survives all this crap.
Marcel....the ONLY thing i liked about him tonight is when he called Oliver "Nirvava" LOL That was hilarious. I LOL'D with that one. Nice touch writers. lol, Other than that when he was talking and giving the speech to everyone, i just kept thinking, "MY GOD I AM TIRED OF YOUR VOICE, KLAUS PLEASE KILL HIM SLOW" Then Marcel and Klaus had their fight, and when Klaus bit him i threw my arms up in the air like i was calling a football penalty, and screamed "YES! HE WILL DIE SLOW AND PAINFUL!" And btw did anyone else laugh when the spell was starting to work and Klaus felt the effects and he turned around and growled at Marcel?? HAHAHAHAHAHA I am sorry but that was HILARIOUS!!! He just turned around with his "GRRRRRR" It made me think of when Damon mocked Stefan for his vamp growl. LOL Except Klaus looked like Simba!!! LMFAO!!! Omg, i'm cracking up thinking about it. Hahahahaha Aw man i gotta take a breath..........
Woo! Ok. Francesca, also knew i didn't like her and wanted her dead for a reason....HELLO REASON!! And she's in league with Oliver. Sigh...i don't even want to look at him as eye candy anymore. I'm over him. But i liked what Jackson said "I love you as a brother, but if you don't back off Hayley, you and me are gonna have problems." Hahaha, that was cool.
Jackson. I still have mixed feelings about him. Idk whether i want him to live or die. I guess if he lived it wouldn't be the worst thing. I wouldn't mind him seeing him in season 2, just to see more of his story arc. It would be interesting. I'm also glad Hayley told Elijah about their arranged marriage.
Haylijah!! My god they will be the death of me!! My heart can't take it. I'm getting (excuse me, we're getting, by we i mean Haylijah shippers) so spoiled and i love it. Personally i think of it as MY early bday present. I'm not complaining. lol I loved how Hayley told Elijah to "bring down the wall" and just let loose. And he just goes and Kisses her. SWOON! I'm getting shivers just thinking about it.
Elijah and Klaus. I loved when they went to talk to Jackson and they had that little moment. Phone rings, it's Hayley..."Where's Jackson?" Elijah: He's a little tied up right now, can i call you back?" Klaus laughs. LOL That was cool, also liked the bomb going off and Elijah grabbing Jackson. But Elijah taking on ALL those vamps!! Dudes! I totally lost it! Once he said " Gentlemen. Shall We?" I was all...@#&%$#%#$@$%#@%^#!!!! That was great. And yet he still kicks ass with class. LOL Idk how he does it.
Despite ALL this. My MVP of the night goes to Cami. I love her. She figured out Francesca all on her own. She TRIED to warn Hayley, she calmed down Elijah. Don't really care that she tried to save Marcel's life, but that's neither here of there this time. I'm just glad she was on her "treasure hunt" and out of harm's way. And Btw i'm kinda over this Mikael thing. Like just bring him back already. B/c i'm annoying with the dragging out.
Don't have much to say about Klaus. Except for what i already said. (Hmm must be having a good night)...... Overall it started off a little slow. But i was entertained. And that last scene made me close my legs. Like ouch! Makes me rethink having children every....single....time.
Favorite line of the night...Jackson returns Hayley runs to hug him: "I'm glad you're okay." Klaus: "I'm okay too, thanks for asking." Hayley: "What about the stones?" LOL There's no love there. That cracked me up. Hayley: "Go Elijah...and don't hold back!"

One word only needed to describe the episode: EPIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If this was the penultimate episode I dread to think of what will happen next week in the season finale.
I just finished watching and am nerve wrecked.
And I have a feeling Klaus will kill the baby and burn the body so that it cannot be consecrated in sacred earth or whatever witch bit*** call it.
Splendid acting, splendid SL, awesomeness at it's height!!!
Best quote: "Nirvana" hahaha LMFAO...
and I always knew Oli and Fracesca were a devious and dangerous piece of sh***, but kudos to the actress!!! She played her part so well, that I wanted to plunge into the screen and the action and tear off her head.
All is lying in debris, Klaus betrayed and weakened, Marcels vampires dead or rabid, esp my heart goes out for Diego. Elijah and Marcel wounded, Hayley kidnapped, Josh lying on his death bed, and MIKAEL waiting to be let into this part of the side by little Davina to cause more destruction and havoc. I hope it is next week ASAP!!!
I hate franksheska with a passion and now that she is a werewolf I hate her even more. Everywhere you go, everyone is scheming against each other. Genevieve keep messing my man and I want her to be good but its not working.
Davina needed to stay sided with Klaus and Elijah, she keeps messing things up. Poor Josh I hope he doesn't die and Klaus might need her afterall to help her.
Elijah, how can I say this correctly....BAD ASS I SWEAR he handled all those vamps without a sweat but then frankcheska's dumbass needed to mess things up.
I can't wait to see a showdown between haley and franksheska. Oliver needs to die!
Elijah and Haley kissing...too cute "you will always have a choice" yes Elijah you always remain with class.
Cami I'm starting to like you...Yes I said it. lol She might serve purpose especially with the human fraction.
Now the witches have haley and she about to give birth. The way they ended the episode left me like NOOOOOOO screaming with Klaus and haley ! lol
