You presume to know me? Then know this: I will gladly end you for what you did to Camille. But first, I'm gonna make you suffer in ways your spoiled, little mind cannot possibly imagine. And when it's over, when your sweet recollections have been rendered obsolete, you will associate my name with fear and pain, and perhaps the dull realization that you...are nothing to me.
Klaus to Aurora

Main Cast

Recurring Cast


  • Graham Wolfe as Fighter #1



  • Antagonists: Aurora de Martel, Aya, and Tristan de Martel.
  • This is the fifth episode of The Originals to refer to New Orleans in the title; Girl in New Orleans being the first, Reigning Pain in New Orleans being the second, The Battle of New Orleans being the third and I'll See You in Hell or New Orleans being the fourth.
  • Driven by jealousy, Aurora brings Cami to the St. Anne's Church to purge out her darkest secrets, where several people are waiting to be transformed into vampires.
    • This episode also marks Cami's first vampire kill.
  • Klaus vows to make Aurora suffer for hurting Camille.
  • Tristan mentions of how Finn Mikaelson, is the noble one of all The Originals. He also teased of their possible friendship, like Finn knowing without doubting that Tristan is a man of his word.
  • This episode marks Lucien's last appearance for five episodes. He is last seen talking to Aurora about Klaus and how he is a fool for rejecting her over Camille.
  • In this episode, Marcel acted as a double agent. While seemingly doing his part of the proposal made by Aya (on behalf of The Strix) to betray the Mikaelsons, he saved Hayley from her attackers and fed Freya his blood to heal her from the fatal stab wound.
    • This act signifies that Marcel, given his experience as a soldier, can also be a skilled tactician and/or strategist.
    • However, the Strix are suspicious of his actions as they suspect him to be the brainchild of Davina's dethronement as a Regent, making her useless for the organization, mentioned by Aya in their conversation.
  • Hibiscus and Mugwort can be used to counteract vervain in a person's system.



Body Count

  • 5 humans; killed by Aurora
  • Few members of The Strix; heart extraction, decapitation; killed by Elijah
  • 2 members of The Strix; heart extraction; killed by Marcel
  • 1 vampire in transition; staked; killed by Cami
  • 1 vampire in transition; broken neck; killed by Klaus

Behind the Scenes

  • The title "The Other Girl in New Orleans" is a callback to a season 1 episode that focused on Cami's character ("The Girl In New Orleans"). With Aurora determined to dismiss Cami as a viable romantic interest in Klaus' life, it felt liked a nice callback.
  • The read-through got a big laugh from many of the guys in the room, who pointed out that they have dated girls exactly as intense and blindly arrogant as Aurora is in this episode, particularly when she says, "You're in danger of losing your true love… ME." 
  • Narducci (aka "Papa Nardooch") and Charles Michael Davis (aka "CMD") have started an unofficial book club, exchanging books about achievement and spirituality, everyone from Annie Lamott to Michael Jordan. Narducci carries a private journal that he uses to jot down quotes that inspire him and will share them with us to carry us through the hard times. The writing staff calls him Coach Taylor. Shippers on Twitter call him That Asshole Who Won't Give Us Klaroline. I call him brilliant.
