It’s official, Originals fans! Mikael is coming to town.
We suspected we’d see the Original father at some point, but we’ve now confirmed that he will show up in the upcoming episode on Tuesday, March 4. Viewers will get a flashback to 1919 when Mikael arrived in New Orleans after being summoned by Rebekah and Marcel.
For those fans who didn’t see Mikael when he came to The Vampire Diaries, he’s the father of the Original family, though he isn’t Klaus’ biological father. Klaus’ mother, Esther, had an affair with a werewolf, hence Klaus’ hybrid capabilities and Mikael’s hatred of Klaus, even at a young age. And after Klaus killed his mother, that hatred only grew. Mikael spent the rest of his life trying to track down his half-son. And when the Vampire Diaries crew reunited them two seasons ago, the showdown was epic.
