[The Originals 4x11] It made me so upset to see Kol like this, begging for mercy once again. He just wanted to save Davina before they killed the Hollow. I'm not angry with Kol because he chose Davina over them. Elijah and Freya have betrayed him and send Davina away in the last season, yet, he forgave them and stood by his family. I think they can forgive him. He was doing it for love. Klaus is actually the last one to blame him since he has betrayed his family or put love first many times. Almost every Mikaelson has done this at one point. Besides that, Kol has always been an outsider and wasn't treated very well. And unlike the others, he could never find love. But Davina changed everything for him and was the first person, who put him first. Of course she's the most important person to him and he needs her. He finally deserves happiness and he can find it with Davina. I feel like some people are so influenced by their hate for Davina that they don't even see, how much Kol and her deserve a happy ending. Anyway, sorry for this long ass rant, I just felt like saying this. Also, I love how much influence Cami still has on Klaus :') β € Q: Do you like Kol? β € My edit give credit [ kolvina klamille kolmikaelson klausmikaelson camilleoconnell theoriginals|173.2k]: For a thousand years, I've never experienced love or peace.

WARNING: BIG SPOILER! Don't read this if you still want to watch the movie and don't wanna know the plot. - - - Movie: Orphan - Tag someone to get noticed. - - - - horror creepy orphan horrormovie movie moviescene dead scary creepyenemies didyouknow fact: @creepy.enemies The big twist at the end of the movie Orphan, when you find out Esther is actually a 33-year-old woman with proportional hyperpituitary dwarfism who killed seven people is one of the best flip-reversal horror movies ever, but did you know that what the writers had planned for Esther was so, so much worse? The original plot was that Esther had been molested by her father for years, starting when she was an infant, which sexualized her at a very young age and destroyed any future chance of her having her own children. Her father later took another lover, telling Esther that, because of her condition, she could never be a real woman. She murdered them both and was ultimately sent to Saarne, a mental institution, but escaped and started working as a prostitute. When she was arrested for this, she kept up the pretense of being a child to stay out of jail and was sent to an orphanage. Esther sees herself as trapped inside the body of a child, and it disgusts her. She wants to "grow up" and be a wife, a mother, and a lover (what her father considered a 'real woman'), and tries to find 'love' where she thought she'd had it as a child, with her new father.
