Question: I'm sure you have tons of letters in your mailbag about the "twist" on The Good Wife. For once, this was not over-hyped at all. I've always stood by the idea that the creators of shows are artists who have the right to do whatever they want with their characters, and we should be more angry with gratuitous plot twists or inconsistent character development than things that just make us sad. It is a "melodrama," after all, and entertainment does not mean that you will be made happy all the time.
Fans were shocked earlier this month when The Originals star Claire Holt suddenly exited the show before the end of Season 1. Though some speculated that Rebekah Mikaelson's story line had run dry, Holt set the record straight at Saturday's PaleyFest event.
The Originals shocker: Which series regular has left the show?
"I wasn't pushed out," she said. "I didn't quit midseason. This was something we discussed form the start. I made a life choice, not a career choice. I made a choice to come home for a while. I realized I hadn't seen people that I loved and cared about for a while. It was so tough for me."
In a surprising move, series regular Claire Holt has exited The Originals before the end of the first season, TVGuide.com has confirmed.
Tuesday's episode concluded with Klaus (Joseph Morgan) finally setting Rebekah (Holt) free from her familial obligations, so she left New Orleans. However...
The Originals' Rebekah and Klaus are about to go through living Hell.
At the end of the last episode, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Rebekah (Claire Holt) had been taken by the new band of witches, dead set on exacting their revenge. From the first minute of Tuesday's episode (8/7c, The CW), the two are in dire circumstances, separated, and being tortured. What unravels is not for the faint of heart.

Another Originals character bites the dust.
After a season of defying many of New Orleans' power players, Sophie Deveraux (Daniella Pineda) succumbed to the forces of the show's newest antagonist, Sophie's own niece, Monique (Yasmin Al Bustami). And Sophie wasn't her only target. By the end of the hour, Monique and her new band of crazy witches took Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Rebekah (Claire Holt) and left them trapped outside of the French Quarter.
