Speculation

It is a well known fact in their Universe that nothing short of the white oak( doesn't exist anymore), an extremely powerful witch, or a bite from Marcel ( the beast) can kill them so far. Guys like Damon have tried every trick they could with one of their bodies( Elijah) and they couldn't destroy him.

The same Damon was smart enough to try his tricks on another supposed immortal hunter and it confirmed the realness/credibility of immortality in the VD/TO universe after he killed Rayna.

She easily comes back to life. Proving the concept of immortality truly exists in their universe.

Nice, though what are limits to Originals regeneration, like if they are place in a furnace wouldn't they die?

@the_kidd: it is immortality. We even see someone try and use that approach with blowtorch level fire and heat, but zero damage. And they ended up giving into the fact they can't kill them by such means. They, as not just vampires, but originals are spelled by magic to not die at all, so I imagine it is like the Thanos spell on Deadpool when I think of it.

Also, not even the pressure of the ocean bottom can kill them, we have seen when jettisoned below.

Klaus was suicidal for 53 years and tried every means to kill himself but failed. Rebekah hinted that even ripping their hearts out would not kill them. If there is some limit to their regeneration, it hasn't been established yet.

And let's be real, this is one of the coolest feats in not only the show, but perhaps live action TV:

I can probably make you a higher res gif if you want of it though. It was like, oh, you are hiding in their conspiring? Let me get your attention by a pocket full my normal coins thrown at you.

@theonewhopullsthestrings: that scene is one of my favorites in the entire VD series. Casually flicks a quarter and destroys reinforced glass!

@macleen: I have gone through half of the thread and it looks really good. I think, for sense feat, Klaus' feat of overhearing a river in background is best any original has shown to date.

I can't remember the episode number either. IIRC, someone was on phone and Klaus was standing a few feet away from them. Not only was he able to hear the conversation perfectly, he was also able to pick up the sound of a river in background that the person on the phone could not hear. I don't know if I'm explaining this well enough.

Yeah, was it Josh? I remeber an episode when Davina escaped and they were looking for her. Either that or it was the wolves
