THE GIRL IN BLACK
After a series of strange encounters, Rebekah (guest star Maisie Richardson-Sellers) becomes intrigued by a mysterious girl who has recently arrived to the insane asylum. At the bayou, Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) struggles with coming clean to Jackson (guest star Nathan Parsons) about the secrets she’s keeping and is surprised when he shares his own secret involving Hayley’s parents. Meanwhile, after learning the details of a particular marriage ritual that Hayley and Jackson must complete, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) heads to the bayou to put an end to it, but not before running into Jackson’s grandmother Mary (guest star Debra Mooney). Elsewhere, Vincent (guest star Yusuf Gatewood) remains determined to uncover the secret he knows Klaus is hiding and sets his eyes on Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) for answers. Lastly, when Davina (Danielle Campbell) discovers that Josh (guest star Steven Kruger) and Marcel are in danger, she enlists the help of Kaleb (guest star Daniel Sharman) and Aiden (guest star Colin Woodell) to rescue them.
When The Originals resumes Jan. 19th on the CW, expect for Finn’s revenge as the highlight of the second chapter of the season.
Here’s a preview from showrunners Julie Plec and Michael Narducci —
This run of episodes is Finn’s revenge and what the family is going to have to do. It’s Elijah taking stock of his mental condition in the aftermath of Ester tormenting him and trying to return to the Elijah we remember. It’s Klaus dealing with Kol who screwed over Rebekah. It’s Hayley determined to save her people and win an army of werewolves who can protect her child through this wedding. And it’s whatever Rebekah is going to unlock as a witch who’s trapped in this insane asylum and how she’s going to rejoin her family and what she’ll bring with her in this new body which will maybe change the family forever. All of those things will come to a head in the next five episodes.
Plus, we have the lingering mystery of Freya and Dahlia and is she coming? Of course if you talk about someone long enough eventually they’ll knock on their door so the devil will make an appearance by the end of the season.
Elijah will clash with a new enemy when The Originals returns Monday on the CW.
Here’s a tease from EP Julie Plec:
There’s going to be a little conflict between Elijah and Klaus. The brothers are at their best when they’re working together, and they’re also at their best when they’re on opposite sides of the fight. The beauty of their dynamic is that you enjoy them just as much when they’re bickering as you do when they’re side-by-side. There will be questions of what’s best for the family. For Klaus, it’s always going to be about Hope, but for Elijah, he has an obligation to the entire family. It’ll put them at odds over the course of the rest of the year.
