Originals, The (The CW 2013, Joseph Morgan, Daniel Gillies)

Published

on

Family is power. The Original Vampire family swore it to each other a thousand years ago. They pledged to remain together, always and forever. Now, centuries have passed and the bonds of family are broken. Time, tragedy and hunger for power have torn the Original Family apart. When Klaus Mikaelson, the original vampire-werewolf hybrid, receives a mysterious tip that a plot is brewing against him in the supernatural melting pot that is the French Quarter of New Orleans, he returns to the city his family helped build.

Klaus’ questions lead him to a reunion with his diabolical former protégé, Marcel, a charismatic vampire who has total control over the human and supernatural inhabitants of New Orleans. Determined to help his brother find redemption, Elijah follows Klaus and soon learns that the werewolf Hayley has also come to the French Quarter searching for clues to her family history, and has fallen into the hands of a powerful witch named Sophie. Tensions between the town’s supernatural factions are nearing a breaking point as Marcel commands his devoted followers and rules with absolute power. For Klaus, the thought of answering to his powerful protégé is unthinkable, and he vows to reclaim what was once his – the power, the city and his family. While they wait to see if their sister Rebekah will leave Mystic Falls and join them, Klaus and Elijah form an uneasy alliance with the witches to ensure that New Orleans will be ruled by THE ORIGINALS once again.

From The CW’s press release, May 2016… When the culmination of a dark prophecy threatens their immortal lives, the Mikaelson family must stand together and face their greatest challenge yet as season four of THE ORIGINALS begins. For more than a millennium, the Original vampire-werewolf hybrid Klaus Mikaelson (Joseph Morgan) and his brother Elijah (Daniel Gillies) have fought to preserve their family no matter the cost. But after centuries, their ruthless actions have spawned a legion of enemies – and in Season Three, they returned with a vengeance. While Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) remains at odds with Klaus over the custody of their child, she soon must choose to ally with the Mikaelsons when their long lost sister Freya (Riley Volkel) uncovers a prophecy foretelling the family’s ruin.

The Originals

With the arrival of the first vampires ever sired, the Mikaelsons begin to realize that their vampire progeny have joined together to eliminate their makers once and for all. As signs around them point to the fulfillment of this dire prophecy, Cami O’Connell (Leah Pipes) finds herself thrust into the center of the conflict, even as she continues to council Klaus to reject his paranoid and merciless ways. Ultimately, the influence of the returning sire lines will take a toll on trusted allies Marcel Gerard (Charles Michael Davis), Davina Claire, (Danielle Campbell), and Vincent Griffith (Yusuf Gatewood). With the Mikaelsons surrounded by enemies and prognostications of doom, they have no choice but to enact a brutal strategy that will turn everyone – friend, foe, and family – against them, thus fulfilling the prophecy itself and setting the course for season four.
