‘The Originals’ Season 3 Promo is Here!

The Originals season three promo is here and appears to be all about Klaus.

Klaus always says he doesn’t want to be alone, but he loves acting alone and he loves to be feared. He may or may not be feared in season three, but he sure wants people to fear him.

Everyone seems to be alone. The only one that seems to be talking to anyone is Cami. And as we know from Comic-Con, Cami is now Klaus’ therapist. How many years of therapy will it take Klaus to over come a 1,000 years of emotional scars?

We do get to see a little glimpse of Elijah and he’s feeling pretty indestructible, by saying they can’t be killed.

Hayley appears in two clips, I wonder how long till the cures will be lifted from her?

Freya is only seen at the very end of the promo, saying they’ll all fall. This really disappoints me. She’s supposed to be a series regular this season, so I’m expecting to see a lot more of her.

This promo doesn’t really tell us much of what’s going on. Just that there’s a lot of family drama going on, but when isn’t there with the Original family?

There is a brief mention of a war brewing between the sire lines, but we don’t really get to see too much of that. We do get to see a little clip of Hayley fighting and guns pointed at Elijah, but unless it’s a special kind of gun, it’s not going to do much to him.

What actually worries me is the blood coming from Davina’s eyes. Is she still trying to bring Kol back? We know she wasn’t going to give up. She’s got more power now being the Regent, but can she handle that power?

Even with the promo telling us very little, I’m still very excited for this season. We know a lot of what’s coming from Comic-Con, so the promo gives you a little visual for that.

My guess is that they don’t want to give too much away, or maybe that’s just my hope. We know there will be a lot of flashbacks and this promo doesn’t show any of that. So there’s a lot to look forward to and this promo is really just a tease.

The Originals will return Thursday, Oct. 8 at 9/8c pm on The CW.


‘The Originals’: Everyone Loves Freya

Freya tells Elijah and Klaus her story.

Freya is quickly becoming a favorite Mikaelson.

Riley Voelkel didn’t make it to San Diego Comic-Con, but she was a big discussion topic on The Originals panel.

Executive producer Julie Plec brought in Riley last season to play the long lost sister, Freya, and executive producer Michael Narducci said, “Riley owned it.”

“She felt to me like a Mikaelson right from the beginning. Very, strong, very intense and 25% bat s–t insane and a very, very great addition to the family,” Michael added.

Julie said whenever you bring in another Mikaelson or another person into the cast, you wonder how it’s going to work and if they are going to fit in.

“What’s beautiful about Riley is that she’s just one of these great personalities, a wonderful spirit. She just kind of dropped right in and made herself at home,” Julie said.

She said she wished Riley could have joined them at Comic-Com, but she was at home in Atlanta with her mother.

Joseph Morgan (Klaus Mikaelson) said Riley clicked right from the beginning.

“When we first did a scene with her she walked right between Klaus and Elijah in the grave yard and kind of threatened us both, put us both in our places,” Joseph said.

Daniel Gillies (Elijah Mikaelson) joked that he wanted her off the set.

Joseph continued the joke: “I feel extremely threatened by this actress, but despite his protests we kept her.”

Joseph said we got to see a little emotional side of Freya when she told the story of her childhood with Dahlia.

“She rocked that as well, so I think at that point everyone was like, hey can she stay?” Joseph added.

“I think we should only talk about Freya,” Julie said.

Riley may not have been at the panel in person, but her spirit was definitely felt.

Michael told fans that last season Klaus was very calculated in his plan after he found out the struggles of a first born Mikaelson witch. Klaus didn’t want Dahlia to raise his daughter, but Freya was also a first born. So he took his aunt down and then made peace with his sister and invited her into his home.

Freya has wanted a family for a 1,000 years and now she’s coming into the compound while the brothers are estranged. Daniel said Freya is Switzerland at the moment.

Michael said that Freya really wants their to be peace and they will have to find a way to deal with each other.

Will Freya be able to referee her brothers and bring peace to her home?

Tune in Thursday, October 8, 9/8c on The CW to find out!

‘The Originals’ Cast ‘Veronica Mars’ Star as Vampire Hunting Detective

Calling all Veronica Mars fans, Jason Dohring is heading to New Orleans to hunt vampires.

The Veronica Mars alum who played Logan Echolls on the UPN/The CW just signed on for a recurring role on The Originals, The Hollywood Reporter said.

Jason will be playing Detective Will Kinney that THR described “as smart and confident with a very clear sense of right and wrong, who is out to bring the forces of evil to justice.”

Will doesn’t know what’s going on in New Orleans, but he has his suspicions.

It doesn’t sound like Jason will be playing a bad boy like Logan, but it should be nice to see him in a new role and going up against the Mikaelsons. He’s going to have to be a pretty tough cop to go up against the original family. Or could he be teaming up with them?

Jason will make his debut in the season three premiere.

At the San Diego Comic-Con executive producers Julie Plec and Michael Narducci told fans that the vampires the Mikaelson’s first sired will be coming to town with “an ax to grind.”

So the Mikaelson family will have more than one enemy to worry about in season three.

Get ready to meet the new detective and the sired vampires when The Originals returns on Thursday, October 8, 9/8c on the CW.

‘The Originals’ Comic-Con: Everything You Need to Know About Season 3

fdc762638e98a037b63ee3352422c210Executive producer Julie Plec was nice enough to give fans of The Originals at Comic-Con a little taste of what’s to come in season three. She brought a video that recapped the first two seasons and introduced three new villains at the end.

We were supposed to meet these villains at the end of season two, but Julie said when they saw the season finale they thought it was better to end on Klaus’s emotional moment. “Sort of just t-ing up there were new enemies to come.”

Executive producer Michael Narducci said they’ve discussed how the Mikaelsons have been around for thousands of years and have probably sired vampires along the way. We know that when an original vampire dies, their sire line dies with them. Season three will be about what those vampire’s perspectives are about the continued existence of the Mikaelson family.

When we left the Mikaelsons in season two, they had just gotten rid of their parents and aunt. “Now they get to experience what it’s like to be so called parents themselves of the first line of sired vampires. So the children are coming to town with an ax to grind,” Julie said.

Not only are there new enemies coming, Klaus and Elijah are very estranged at the moment, but they still have to work together to take care of little Hope.

Joseph Morgan (Klaus Mikaelson) thinks that when The Originals returns that Klaus will be a bad father.

“I think he kind of knows he’s messing it up, but he’s trying at least. You gotta give him that. Even if he’s warping the mind of his young daughter before she’s uttered even a syllable,” Joseph said.

While Klaus and Elijah will try to take care of Hope despite their differences, Freya will also be there to help take care of the powerful baby.

Riley Voelkel was a new addition to the cast this season and Michael said, “Riley owned it.”

“She felt to me like a Mikaelson right form the beginning. Very strong, very intense and 25% bat s–t insane and a very, very great addition to the family,” Michael added.

Julie said Riley just fit right into the cast and they really wished she could of come with them, but she was at home in Atlanta with her mom.

There has been a lot of new additions over the first two seasons, but not all of them have stuck around.

“A typical day we’re sitting there thinking about how much we love our actors and our cast is phenomenal. We’re just kind of chilling out and then the angel of death walks in and says, ‘I feel like killing off so and so’ and then we figure that out,” Michael said, as he looked at Julie.

“They have a big roulette wheel with all of our names on,” Joseph said.

“I do. I do,” Julie joked.

Julie said the best death scenes are the ones they don’t want to do. The ones that hurt.

Julie was originally determined not to kill off Aunt Jenna from The Vampire Diaries, but then someone presented Jenna’s death in a way that was so terrible, she loved it.

There are other times when an actor wants to leave.

“Just from a logistical point of view, Daniel Sharman, who was so wonderful as Kol,” Julie started to say and the crowd screamed.

Daniel got a new job, so they had to write him off. Julie did say we will see Kol again next season, this time as Nathaniel Buzolic. We’ll even see him right away in flashbacks.

Davina isn’t going to stop trying to get her boyfriend back.

Danielle Campbell (Davina Claire) thinks Davina and Kol had a special connection, which is what made them able to do so much magic together. He’s the first person who’s understood her and is very important to her.

Davina has changed a lot in only two seasons.

“I think as an actor, I love it. It’s what you really want. I’ve gotten to experience so many different arcs and I’ve really gotten to grow with the character,” Danielle said.

Cami has gone through a lot of changes since The Originals started too. She came back to New Orleans not know anything about the supernatural world and now she’s the last remaining legacy of her family. And she has a very complicated relationship with Klaus.

Leah Pipes (Camille O’Connell) said Cami saw her twin brother plunge into darkness and she sees that darkness in herself. She also may see some of that darkness in Klaus that she’s repressing.

“I think there is an untapped darkness in Cami that we potentially will be seeing some of,” Leah said.

“I think that at the same time Klaus sees that darkness in her and sees someone highly intelligent who’s vulnerable and human and fragile. And yet sees him with sympathetic eyes and looks at him not as a monster, but as a complex soul. That’s something that he doesn’t necessarily get all the time and doesn’t necessarily think he deserves completely. So there’s some attraction there,” Michael said. 

“She sees the good him,” Leah added.

“Yeah, perhaps,” Michael replied with a hint of a laugh.

“There’s silence in the audience. No one liked that,” Leah said and the panel laughed.

There’s a lot of powerful ladies on The Originals and we should hopefully see some great scenes with all of them together in the coming season.

“There’s a good faction of writers in our writers room who really believe that the female relationships and friendships are as strong and as important to the show as the supernatural stuff and as the bromance and the romance. They fight really hard to find ways to put characters together. We figure out ways to develop those bonds,” Julie said.

The big romance on the show is Hayley and Elijah of course.

“He’s going to be holding a lot more coats out in the wilderness for her,” Daniel Gillies (Elijah Mikaelson) said.

“The coats are going to become exponentially smaller and smaller. It’s just going to be a tiny jacked. Just going to be a thong. Not even. A false mustache. He’s kinky,” Daniel joked.

Daniel got serious and said that Elijah has “monumental patients and I think he’ll just wait it out,” he said.

He said Elijah will always be there for Hayley when she needs him.

Joseph interjected: “Though his patients with Klaus has run out.”

“Well that’s a thousand years of it. He’s only had like what, two years,” Daniel replied.

“I think he’s going to remain devoted to her through whatever. And to the child,” Daniel added.

When Charles Michael Davis (Marcel Gerard) was asked about his character’s failed relationships he replied: “Wait, we’re talking about my personal life now?”

He hopes that Rebekah will come back in any body.

“You say that now and then she shows up, ‘Hello Marcel. I’m finally back in my new body. 86 years old. Give us a kiss, you devil you,” Joseph said in a fake old lady voice.

Charles joked and said he liked were this was going and Joseph said he would be playing the part “in a sort of Monty Pythonesque” way.

All fans constantly want to know when the next crossover will be. Michael isn’t such a fan of crossovers. He said he’s a producer and writer on The Originals, so he has his own characters to focus on. Then he waits “for my fearless leader to tell me, actually Mike, I have The Vampire Dairies and The Originals and we’re going to do a crossover with both of them and we’re going to bring in the people from Containment too, because I am God,” Michael said.

“And there you have it,” Julie concluded.


The cast were able to make a wish for their characters:

Leah Pipes:

I’m a human, so I just want to stay alive.

Phoebe Tonkin

I think my wish for Hayley would be that Hope can live a normal happy existence. I think that’s what she would want the most.

Daniel Gillies

I think for Elijah I would want, other than his girlfriends not being incinerated. (“Oh, come on,” Joseph said.) I’m saying I’m not letting that go easily. I’m actually wishing for something dark. Sort of would wish for a great division between the brothers before conciliation. (“So that’s how it’s going to be?” Joseph said.)

Joseph Morgan

I wish everyone would just do what Klaus says because he’s always right. He knows what he’s doing. It’s for the greater good. Come on, get on board with his plans and everything will be alright in the end. Not everyone will be alright in the end, but everything will be alright in the end. (Crowd laughs.)

Julie Plec

I just destroy wishes.

Charles Michael Davis

I wish Marcel would crossover. (“Whoa,” Julie said.)

Danielle Campbell

Davina’s a witch and I think it would be really cool if she could fly. So whether it’s a broomstick or something else. I still think it would be really cool.

Yusaf Gatewood

Mine’s pretty selfish. I hate shaving, so I wish we could work something out so Vincent can grow a huge beard. (“No, we can’t” Julie answered.)

‘TVD’ Comic-Con: All About the Relationships

all-spell-breaks-loose-e1421017216792While Elena is in a deep sleep, there’s still a lot to look forward to in season seven of The Vampire Diaries.

We may have lost Delena, but Steroline is just starting to heat up.

So what can we look forward to for Steroline? “A lot of very unexpected twists and turns,” executive producer Julie Plec said.

“The fun of this couple is they’re just coming together. They’re just getting really cemented in the romantic status. As we left it off, sort of said, ‘I will be here when you’re ready.’ So she’s trying really, really hard not be ready, but…”

Then Paul Wesley (Stefan Salvatore) interrupted Julie and said: “She can’t resist.”

While we did get some great information about season seven, the cast was having a lot of fun at the San Diego Comic-Con panel on Sunday.

Candice Accola (Caroline Forbes) asked the audience if they wanted to see more shirtless scenes of Stefan. The crowd roared with approval and Candice said, “that was a formal request,” while looking at Julie.

Paul wasn’t too pleased. He replied: “That was season one when I was a youngster. Times have changed.”

Ian Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore) and Paul were also having a little debate over their couple’s shipping names. Ian wants the Steroline name to change.

“Delena, likes that’s any better,” Paul replied.

“At least it doesn’t sound like it’s in a hospital,” Ian said.

“Delena sounds like it could potentially be a disease. Steroline sounds like the cure for the disease,” Paul said.

Did you ever wonder what it’s like to film these Steroline scenes?

“I just love making Candice feel awkward on set. Candice is married. I’m friends with her husband. I love when we have to do make out scenes because it’s so uncomfortable and it’s so funny. But we love each other,” Paul said.

“Don’t we love each other?” Paul turned and asked Candice.

“Oh yeah, just so much,” Candice said laughing.

Candice had her own behind the scenes awkward story to tell: “If you want to ever try something really disturbing, put a lot of fake blood in your mouth and have to make out with someone. I’m glad it worked out on television, but that was definitely an awkward day at work.”

Candice did get serious to talk about her character. She confessed she loves a good slow burning relationship on TV that you can watch the relationship build. She’s very excited for Steroline in season seven and excited for the fans too. She won’t say anything more though because she’s afraid she’ll get in trouble for spoilers.

Paul was able to get serious for a second to talk about Steroline. He really likes their history. It obviously started out as a platonic relationship, but there were moments when you thought there could be something more going on there.

“Those moments when you sort of zoom in on the eyes–something going on. It could happen between anyone,” and with that said Paul went goofy again.

“I feel like Ian and I have had those moments,” Paul said.

The crowd screamed.

“Yeah, right that’s what I’m taking about,” Paul responded to the crowd.

“I am my brother’s keeper,” Ian replied.

“Why go across the street when you can go across the hall?” Paul said.

“I taught him that one by the way,” Ian said.

The crowd was laughing with Paul and Ian’s exchanges.

Ian and Paul were definitely having a good time during the panel, but lets talk about our beloved Delena for a minute.

“What’s nice about it is there’s still a really intense core romance almost like in a fairy tale way attached to it. Damon has put the love of his life away and now he’s gotta figure out…” Julie said.

“She’s just taking a little nap,” Ian interrupts.

Kat Graham (Bonnie Bennett) really likes how the writers ended Elena’s storyline. She likes that it keeps the door open for Nina Dobrev to come back, “but it also created an interesting dynamic going into season seven for Bonnie and Damon to have them deal with the fact that Bonnie’s alive and Elena’s not.”

For the fans that were totally in love with Bamon at the beginning of season six, they will be happy to hear that Ian’s favorite stuff that TVD has done was Bonnie and Damon trapped in 1994.

He asked the crowd if they agreed and they applauded quite a bit.

“It’s funny because they hate each other, they love each other, they resent each other, but they’re stuck together. It’s sort of an amazing recipe for a lot of cool drama,” Ian said, with a lot of emphasis on ‘drama’.

Kat’s favorite episode of season six was the one that Ian was directing. She’d never filmed a scene before where the director was the actor too.

“You’re directing again in season seven, right?” Kat asked Ian.

“Yeah, well hopefully,” Ian replied and turned to look at Julie.

The EP was put on the spot and just shrugged her shoulders.

“Yeah, absolutely,” Ian answered for her.

So how will Damon be without Elena?

Julie said that Damon will be trying to figure out who is without Elena and how he can make the right decisions without her by his side.

“You’ll get to see a lot of naughty Damon,” Julie said.

“It’s the old f—ing Damon. The Damon that we really fell in love with,” Ian said and the crowd cheered.

“And that’s the goal. Lets bring back that energy, that sexy, volatile, fun, scary, dangerous. All that s–t that made you guys love him to begin with. We’re bringing it back,” Ian added and the crowd roared.

Executive producer Caroline Dries said it’s fun for writers to dig deeper into a character and see what makes them tick. She told fans that they will get to see a lot of bromance between Stefan and Damon next season. It will be a new dynamic with their mother living in Mystic Falls.

Michael Malarkey (Enzo) sat their quietly during the panel just waiting for his turn and when it was finally his turn, his answer was great. He was asked what excited him about his character helping move the Lily story forward in the last season.

“More screen time,” was his reply.

Michael told fans that Enzo will have to choose sides in season seven and he will really struggle with it.

Also when the relationship of Lily and Enzo was brought up, Ian asked, “Are you going to bone our mother? Lets just get it out on the table.”

Michael got in on the joking and replied: “She’d be Enzo’s first.”

Clearly not feeling confident in his joke, he followed it up with stating it was a joke.

Caroline confessed that each season they try to out do the villain from the last. They feel like Kai was their best villain ever and the crowd seemed to agree with her as they cheered for the late Kai.

The characters will go up against the heretics next season, but they have no idea how to defeat this new enemy.

“It’s going to be really exciting, gruesome and violent when we start, but really the mystery will be how did Mystic Falls gets to be the way we saw it at the end of season six,” Caroline said.

Get ready for the dark season seven of TVD premiering Thursday, October 8, 8/7c on the CW.

Candice Accola had something special to say about Caroline turning her emotions off:

It was really fun. It was such a tragic storyline and I kind of knew and was clued in that Sheriff Forbes was going to pass this season and how it was going to happen. I thought it was such a human obstacle that these characters hadn’t really faced and there was no supernatural spell that could break the fact that she had cancer and I thought that was really powerful. So from all that grief and all the sadness to just go from you know, heartless bad ass Caroline was really, really fun and a really cool change for the character.

‘The Originals’ Review: Ashes to Ashes, the Battle is Won

The Mikaelson family.

The Mikaelson family.

It was a Mikaelson family reunion on the season finale. Ester came back to destroy her sister and Rebekah was back in her body again.

Klaus is a great villain because he has the best devious plans. He manipulated every piece of the puzzle for the victory. But this is also what leaves him all alone. It’s exciting to see his plans unfold though, and this was a very exciting plan with multiple parts. There will be a lot of consequences from this plan.

I love Davina, but this betrayal may put her on the path of evil. Vincent said she would have to be very careful or she would be more evil than them all. Maybe Vincent will be sticking around now that he’s seen his error in judgment. Cami called him out on leaving Davina without a teacher. This sets up an interesting storyline for season three.

Cami has also finally admitted she has feelings for Klaus. Whoever knew someone could actually love Klaus after all he’s done.

Elijah is done with Klaus. It was just one too many betrayals. But Hayley has asked that he be there for Hope. Elijah will have to put aside his feelings and be there for Hope.

I can’t believe that Hayley is cursed. Sometimes I really hate Klaus, especially when he just thinks of the mother of his child as collateral damage. Hope needs her mother.

Rebekah is on her own journey. Freya gave her the opportunity to take back the witch body and choose her own path. Rebekah can’t choose, but she will keep her promise to Kol.

The season finale was definitely a family affair. Dahlia was reunited with the sister that betrayed her. It all started with always and forever and it ended that way too.

‘The Originals’: Review: Klaus is Playing with Fire and Ice

Hayley wanted to teach her daughter, you don't leave anyone behind. So what exactly is Klaus teaching her?

Hayley wanted to teach her daughter, you don’t leave anyone behind. So what exactly is Klaus teaching her?

Klaus always has the best plans. This one included making his siblings think he was going against them. And even cursing Hayley’s pack to be wolves always. It was a very devious plan, but what is the final part? How will they kill Dahlia?

From the beginning it looked like Klaus was up to his old tricks. He compelled Marcel to find out their plan. He killed Elijah’s new love interest. He even looked like he killed Cami. Klaus was back to his monster self, but not so fast.

It took the whole episode, but in the end Cami let us in on a little secret, it was all part of his diabolical plan. Maybe daggering him was a bad idea. But can you blame his siblings? Half the time Klaus seems more of a danger to himself and everyone around him than useful.

This was definitely an epic episode. One that felt more like a season finale than a normal episode. They were so, so close to killing Dahlia, that is, if it was even going to work. Dahlia claim’s Freya’s blood would never have worked. And poor Freya, she’s gone to sleep early. But I like Freya. I want to see more of her. She’s just as diabolical as Klaus. She’s awesome. Mikael was the only thing that scared Klaus and Dahlia is the only thing that scares Freya. They are so much alike.

I guess you should never think things are as they appear when Klaus is behind the plan. The biggest question, other than how they kill Dahlia, is will Rebekah wake up in her own body or is she dead for good? How can they kill her off for good? She has to come back!

This was also a very good episode for Davina. She convinced the coven to make her their regent. Davina is going to have more power than ever. She’s sure to be powerful enough to bring Kol back, but will she take down Klaus in the process? Will the witches me an enemy yet again to Klaus? And where will this leave Marcel and Davina’s relationship? Or Josh and Davina’s relationship?

Once question that is answered in the promo: Claire Holt will be making an appearance! But Elijah can’t forgive Klaus and they still have to defeat Dahlia. Take a look at the promo for the season finale:

‘The Originals’ Review: A Great Battle is Approaching

Aiden would have been happy that his best friend and boyfriend pushed him off to the afterlife.

Aiden would have been happy that his best friend and boyfriend pushed him off to the afterlife.

So is Dahlia not the evil witch that Freya painted her to be and how she’s been perceived so far? She wants to protect Hope and help her hone her craft, but without Hayley. It seems Klaus has taken after his aunt. He’ll easily sacrifice Hayley for his daughter.

Maybe if she approached them with the truth to begin with and didn’t want to tear Hope away from her mother, they could have worked all of this out, but now a big battle appears to be on the horizon.

Hayley tried to get away from the Mikaelsons. She said goodbye to Elijah and Rebekah agreed that was the right thing to do, but she’ll be needing Rebekah and Elijah on her side very soon.

This was a twist I didn’t see coming and I like it. Dahlia is more interesting and devious than we thought. Before she was just a powerful villain. Ester broke her heart when she chose Mikael over her, one of the very men that pillaged their village. Ester also turned her back on magic, that is until she needed her sister to help her have kids.

Is there no way that Hope could hone her skills without Dahlia? She is in a city with a lot of powerful witches. So maybe I’m a little biased because I don’t want Hayley to be killed. She’s become such a strong character and she’s becoming a great Queen to her pack.

Her advice came in one of the unlikeliest of places, Marcel. She hasn’t always been on the friendliest terms with Marcel. He told her that she can’t be their Queen and a friend. If she’s willing to let her pack die for her, she has to live with it. Hayley’s been on her own for so long, she’s never had to lead and make those hard decisions.

Her first major decision may not have been perceived well at first by the pack. She invited Josh to Aiden’s funeral. It was great that Josh was able to be there and I was hoping from the beginning of the episode that he would be there. It was very fitting that Jackson and and Josh pushed him off into the water. It was a perfect funeral for Aiden.

Things may be getting very interesting for Davina. Vincent suggests she become the leader of the coven. If she does she’ll have access to the power she’ll need to bring Kol back.

I’m not sure how Davina would be as a leader. Her people are Josh and Marcel and she’s close with Rebekah. Not exactly the people the coven would like her to be close to. I think she’s a great young witch and has a lot of potential, but maybe not ready to take over the coven.

Next week Klaus goes after Hayley. Take a look at the promo:

‘The Originals’: Dahlia Breaks the Levee

Klaus shouldn't have took credit for killing Aiden, it was his undoing.

Klaus shouldn’t have took credit for killing Aiden, it was his undoing.

Klaus spent the whole episode scheming and strategizing and now he won’t even be there to see his plan through. All because he wouldn’t trust a single person in helping him protect Hope. He took credit for a murder he didn’t even commit, thinking it would make the wolves fear him. Instead he’s more isolated than ever. He played right into Dahlia’s plan and Freya didn’t have to do much to tear her siblings part. Klaus did that for her.

Right from the start Klaus was creating a plan by himself. He hid the ashes from everyone and wouldn’t even let Elijah know where they were.

Josephine came with a message for them, or Dahlia using Josephine’s body did. She just wants what is her’s and she wanted it nightfall the next day. She said there’s “no reason we can’t be civil about this” and Klaus knocked off her head, that was only staying on because of a choker.

Hayley doesn’t want to stay put but she doesn’t want to leave either because Dahlia can track Hope. So what if they stopped her form using magic? Hayley ponders. Aiden jumps in, he has an idea and he wants to make it up to them for screwing up before. Jackson doesn’t know he screwed up yet.

Rebekah goes to see Freya and gives her her condolences. She tells her she didn’t know the man Freya loved. All Rebekah knew was a man with a terrible temper and awful cruelty. Freya gives Rebekah a choice, Klaus or her.

Elijah walks in on Klaus painting and knows he’s strategizing. Elijah tells him he can’t do this alone, but Klaus says Elijah’s judgement is not what it was since Ester got inside his head and he’s not what he was.

No! Not Aiden!

No! Not Aiden!

Aiden sneaks inside the Mikaelson house to steal the magic binding chains, but he’s caught by Klaus. Aiden tells him he’s there for Hope’s bunny and to tell him Hayley and Hope are safe. Klaus acts like he believes him at first, but gives him a warning.

Aiden and Josh ask if Davina can transfer the magic from the chains to something smaller, so Hayley, Jackson and Hope can get out of town.

While Davina is working on the spell, Dahlia has found Hope. She can’t get in, but she magically grows dahlia’s right outside the door. She wants to meet the child face to face. The problem with Freya was she took her too late, so she’s come for Hope sooner. She’ll have no memory of her family and will be better off.

Rebekah is still trying to decide what sibling to choose. Marcel knows Klaus will have a plan.

Elijah refuses to choose a side. He goes to see Freya to bring her Mikael’s old knife for the marker she is making. He urges her to stay and defeat Dahlia together. Freya agrees, but wants Elijah to make sure Klaus won’t be their undoing.

Aiden is ready to run away too. He wants Josh to go with him and he tells Josh he loves him. Josh agrees, but first Aiden must tell Jackson the truth.

Aiden give’s Jackson the magic binding bracelet and tells him he’s been spying for Klaus. Jackson punches Aiden, but ultimately forgives him. Jackson says goodbye, but that he’ll always be apart of the pack.

Aiden is off to meet with Josh. He buys him nice roses, but Dahlia is there to greet him. She calls Aiden a tipping point to put Mikaelson against Mikaelson. She rips out his heart and leaves him there in the alley.

Davina is so happy that Josh is getting away and getting his happily ever after. But then they find Aiden lying in the alley. Josh tries to give Aiden his blood, but it’s too late.

Jackson brings Aiden’s body into the safe house blaming Klaus for the murder. Klaus looks absolutely shocked, but takes the credit. Hayely is furious, Jackson is furious. Jackson attacks Klaus. Hayley jumps in and then Jackson again. Elijah breaks it up and protects his brother.

Davina goes to see Marcel distraught and brings the dagger with her. She wants Marcel to put Klaus down.

Meanwhile Hayley pleads with Elijah to help them leave town.

So why did Klaus admit to a murder he didn’t do? Cami confronts him about it and Klaus tells her the truth, that he didn’t kill Aiden. He just wanted them to fear him because he’s the only one that can protect Hope.

He tells Cami that a better man would protect her with that lie, but he’s leaving her with the burden of the truth that no one will believe.

Elijah goes to see Klaus and tell him Hayley and Jackson have taken Hope. Klaus is furious with him and attacks him. Elijah fights back and daggers him. Rebekah and Freya walk in as Klaus falls asleep.

Next week the fight against Dahlia continues and Freya wants to use Hope to lure Dahlia. Take a look at the promo:

‘The Originals’: Dahlia Has a Thousand Eyes

Dahlia is proving to be very powerful.

Dahlia is proving to be very powerful.

Dahlia has arrived and she’s the scariest villain we’ve seen yet. She observed them by taking control of the people in the town to spy on them. Jackson was even taken. All Jackson felt was darkness and after that, he didn’t trust the Mikaelsons to protect Hope and Hayley.

Elijah was also working on another plan. Marcel and him went to Josephine to cast a spell to a place that wouldn’t allow magic. Marcel would escort Hayley, Hope and Jackson that night.

Klaus was also working on a plan. He joined forces with Mikael. Klaus used his father’s love for Freya to get him to help.

They then took the soil of Scandinavia, Viking’s ashes and Freya’s blood binded it to a knife to use as a weapon.

Klaus used Davina to cast the spell. He also used her to find Mikael. Davina was getting Kol’s remains in return.

Everyone was trying to figure out a new way to protect themselves and destroy Dahlia.

Freya tried to use Jackson to track Dahlia’s magic, but Rebekah saw that Dahlia was drawing power from Freya, which we already knew. So I’m not sure why that was a surprise. Rebekah sent Freya away and Elijah was not happy about this. The one person that understood Dahlia’s magic.

Freya was wandering around the Quarter when her aunt found her. Dahlia called her selfish and ungrateful.

If you were wondering if Freya was telling the truth, the fear in her eyes told it all. She went straight to Elijah and Rebekah to warn them afterwards. Klaus and their father was her next target.

She would lure them into a place where mass murder happened. Where else would that be, but the church.

I didn't expect Mikael to be killed off again so soon.

I didn’t expect Mikael to be killed off again so soon.

Dahlia was prepared and used more people to fight them. Klaus and Mikael of course had no problem killing them, but Dahlia was more powerful and put Kluas and Mikael almost in the brink of sleep, like a dagger would do. Freya showed up and begged her aunt to stop. Elijah fed his brother his blood. Klaus was back to full speed and sped to Dahlia with the knife, but she was too quick.

She vanished and took the knife with her. She reappeared with the knife. All she wants is Hope, what she believes is rightfully her’s and will spare them if they give her Hope. She leaves them be to think on their fate.

Jackson had asked Aiden to help them run, but Aiden was also working for Klaus. He now had a hard choice to make, betray Klaus or Jackson. Klaus would kill him, but Jackson is a longtime friend. Josh knew Aiden spoke to Klaus that morning and asked what was going on and helped Aiden figure out how to handle it.

Marcel came to pick up Hayley, Hope and Jackson, but they were gone. Aiden was off in a car looking like he didn’t know what to do or mad at himself for betraying Jackson. He ended up telling Jackson there was traffic and he bought it.

Marcel found Hayley, Hope and Jackson and took them to safety.

Klaus, Mikael and Freya were all rattled by the failure. They needed to get all the ingredients again to form another weapon.

Klaus struck out at Mikael and Freya panicked. Elijah had to hold her back. You could see the hurt in Klaus’ eyes for all the pain his father has caused. He asks Mikael why he resented him and Mikael replied with, I just did. Mikael tells Freya he loves her before Klaus kills him.

They now have their Viking’s ashes.

Next week Klaus is losing it. Take a look at the promo:
