The Originals episode “The River in Reverse” will give us another glimpse of Celeste [Raney Branch]. It seems we will be seeing more of this beauty from the looks of episode 1×10 “The Casket Girls.” The history that we know so far about Celeste.
Celeste made her first appearance in House of the Rising Son was involved with Elijah in the 1800′s. She attended parties thrown for Elijah and his siblings in the governor’s mansion and was fully aware of the fact that the Mikaelsons where vampires.
In The River in Reverse in 1820, Elijah was shown visitng Celeste who is seen taking a bath and is looking at Elijah, he likes the view of hers as he’s seeing it’s perfection. Celeste then mentions that his brother is again up to no good. He’s challenging the gentry to duels as though they have any chance of a fair fight .
Elijah then responds and says. “I do grow weary of sacrificing my joy to temper my brother’s mischief. Surely, you can cast a spell to put him in his place.” But Celeste mentions it would take about a 100 Witches to put him in his place. Elijah then mentions that his brother certainly needs a little discipline. and jokes that maybe a Spanking of some kind is in order. And tells her that he thinks he shall need some rehearsal. They then both Kiss before he leaves to meet his brother.
Elijah then is about to meet with his brother who is seen challenging a man in a duel in which Klaus is left standing and the other man is shot to the head. Elijah then becomes a little worried, and says. “Brother! Please, this is high folly.” He then asks Klaus if it is not enough, that he have slaughtered dozens in just these past several weeks? and explains a Word of a city littered with bodies will surely travel the oceans. And asks his brother if he wants to bring their father upon them? Klaus tells Elijah to Relax. And tells him he have sent rumor that the bodies are result of the witches seeking blood sacrifice for their rituals. Elijah then is a little shocked and says. “You did what?” He asks Klaus if he have forgotten, that Celeste is one of those that he recklessly point his finger at? Klaus then asks, who Celeste is?
Elijah then gives Klaus a meaningful look. Klaus then remembers the witch Elijah has been knocking around with. Klaus then tells Elijah. “Well, fear not. Harlots are like rats in the quarter. You trip over one every step you take.” Elijah then takes a revolver and shoots at Klaus, who groans with pain. Klaus sees that Elijah cares about Celeste and warns that they’re rounding up the towns witches as they speak. Elijah then began to look for Celeste and found her lying in the bathtub, dead. Elijah touches her, lays his forehead on hers. He screams and blames himself for her death.
- Celeste was romantically involved with Elijah in the 1820′s.
- Klaus was responsible for Celeste’s death in the 1820′s
- It was revealed in The Casket Girls that Celeste will be resurrected.
- Sophie Deveraux plans to absorb Celeste’s essence.
- Elijah buried Celeste in a secret location as per her request between two oak saplings, where Sophie later dug her up.
- According to Sophie, Celeste was a very powerful witch.
I’m very excited for the return of Celeste. Maybe this will get Elijah refocused on more than just his brother’s redemption.
