'The Originals': Sebastian Roche talks season 2 secrets and Mikael's softer side

There is only one name that strikes genuine fear into the heart of Klaus Mikaelson: Mikael.

When Mikael first entered the third season of The Vampire Diaries, he was known as the vampire who hunted vampires. It was then pieced together that he was much more than that. He was the father of the Original family.

And with that discovery came baggage. Years before, when Mikael discovered that his wife had cheated on him with a werewolf and that Klaus was not his biological son, Mikael had cast Klaus aside, labeling him “an abomination.” And when Mikael helped Esther turn their family into vampires, the parents tried to keep Klaus’ wolf side at bay. But more than a thousand years later, Klaus is a hybrid, and Mikael is still determined to kill him.

And despite being killed on The Vampire Diaries, the Original father has found his way back to the land of the living on The Originals, and with season 2, Mikael has his biggest role yet. We spoke with the man behind Mikael, Sebastian Roché, about the character, what comes next, and more.

Julia confronts Joel on 'Parenthood': 'You destroyed us'

Last season, Parenthood fans watched as Joel and Julia’s marriage fell apart. Julia kissed Ed, Joel moved out, and suddenly, the happily married couple had stopped communicating. But in last week’s season 6 premiere, fans saw a glimmer of hope when Joel comforted a distraught Julia with a kiss.

However, after months of separation and emotional turmoil, one kiss isn’t going to fix their marriage. In fact, we’ve got an exclusive sneak peek at tomorrow night’s episode, in which Joel and Julia find themselves at Sydney’s school for a meeting with their daughter’s teacher, after which the exes have a tearful heart-to-heart.

'Vampire Diaries': Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev talk Damon and Elena

Elena Gilbert has lost a lot of loved ones in the past five seasons. Not only did The Vampire Diaries start with the death of her adoptive parents, but from there, she lost friends, an aunt, birth parents, a caregiver, and her brother. But in the season 5 finale, she experienced a new sort of loss when Damon, the man she loved, died.

However, as fans of the show now know, Damon might have died, but he is by no means gone. (And the same goes for Bonnie.) So where we will we find Damon and Elena when we pick back up for season 6? Physically, they’re in two very different places. And emotionally? Well, the same rules apply.

For Elena, college life is full of the grief that comes from believing you’ve lost your boyfriend, your best friend, and your hometown forever. That being said, it might not be the type of grief you expect. “We do fast forward four months, so the initial shock grieving, we’ve already surpassed,” Nina Dobrev said. “Now we’re seeing the second phase of it, which is eerily deceiving and odd. It’s not a very conventional way of dealing with grief.”

Which new fall show will be canceled first?

First-Canceled-Show1.jpg

No network or producer wants their show to be the first voted off the broadcast prime-time island. Sure most new series attempts fail, but being the very first to get booted in the fall season is a special kind of shame; it usually means that critic and viewer rejection was swift and overwhelming.

Figuring out which will get axed first can be tricky. It’s not just about which has the lowest ratings, or is the least liked by critics or viewers, but other factors: How many episodes have aired? How strong is the competition? How did that time slot perform for the network last season? Does the network have another show that will perform better that’s ready to fill the space?

My thoughts: ABC’s Selfie has received the bulk of the social-media rage. (It must drive the producers bonkers that their comedy is slammed by people who loathe social media addicts—when the show is trying to mock social-media addicts. While Tuesday’s premiere rating was lousy, Selfie‘s lead-out, Manhattan Love Story, did even worse). Fox’s Red Band Society has almost no pulse, but it seems unlikely the network would let a Steven Spielberg-produced drama get axed first. Plus, Fox’s sick kids are doing better than Utopia—which is my bet for first canceled show (or, at minimum, first demoted show). Fox announced Utopia as a year-long social experiment. But it’s killing its two time slots on the schedule, plus providing a poor lead-in for the network’s Tuesday comedy block. At the very least, I bet this show is going to move off Tuesdays (update: called it!). We could also have ripe prime candidates for first axed show later this week when NBC rolls out Bad Judge and A to Z into the Thursday Night Football/Shondaland buzzmill.
