9. The Originals Were Hardly The First Immortals
The Originals’ claim to fame as the first immortals is actually very questionable as it is eventually revealed during the course of TVD. They are the first vampire generation but are not the first immortals, technically speaking, and it’s weird that they keep using the reference even though they are well aware that it’s untrue.
Mikael, Finn, Elijah, Rebekah, Klaus, and Kol were only immortal unless stabbed with the White Oak Stake. Moreover, Silas had taken the immortality potion thousands of years before the Originals, making him the first immortal.
