Kol comes to 'The Originals' in season 2 trailer

As The Originals Comic-Con panel is currently taking place in San Diego, the season 2 trailer has already hit the internet—and it is full of blood, revenge, and really questionable parenting.

In the trailer, fans get a glimpse at a very hungry hybrid Hayley, Marcel’s new “vampire community,” Elijah with facial hair, and of course, the Original parents. Mikael and Elijah come face-to-face with their unfinished business, while mommy dearest Esther has the most exciting scene of all: She has Kol’s body.

As fans of The Vampire Diaries know, Kol is another of the Original siblings, played by Nathaniel Buzolic. He has yet to make an appearance on The Originals, mostly because he was killed by Jeremy Gilbert. Then again, Mikael was dead just last season, and he’s back, so we wouldn’t put anything past these witches. Perhaps Julie Plec is planning that big family reunion she discussed with us after the season 1 finale.

The trailer also gives a first look at Teen Wolf‘s Daniel Sharman as Kaleb, a new witch in town.

The Originals returns Monday, Oct. 6 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.

'The Originals' finale postmortem: Julie Plec talks revenge, baby names, and a full Mikaelson family reunion

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched the season finale of The Originals, stop reading now!

Last night, The Originals first season came to an end in a way no one could’ve expected: Hayley was a hybrid, just about all the town’s vamps were dead, Mikael was back, Rebekah was on the run with the baby, and what appeared to be Esther and Finn showed up in other people’s bodies. But don’t worry, if you haven’t finished digesting what all of that could mean for season 2, we chatted with Executive Producer Julie Plec about what exactly those twists will affect, how they decided to name the baby Hope, and everything about Elijah’s breakdown.

Check out our conversation below:

'The Originals' finale: Daniel Gillies on the show's 'Darth Vader', and 'the beginning of the end for Elijah'

From the moment The Originals was pitched as a Vampire Diaries spin-off, it was talked about as the story of Klaus Mikaelson’s redemption, among other things, and what that would mean for this literally ancient family of vampires. And now, one season later, we’re only hours away from Klaus’ baby being born and what could be the start of a whole new Klaus. Then again, we could be hours away from Klaus going down his darkest road yet.

But one thing seems certain: Thanks to a romantic entanglement with Hayley, Klaus’ older brother Elijah will be just as affected by any outcome. And Daniel Gillies, the man behind Elijah, has spoken before about how this series is as much about Klaus’ redemption as it is about the undoing of Elijah. “What’s exciting about a character like Elijah is I think that I feel like he has an enormous threshold for this punishment,” Gillies said. “It’s partly to do with how I believe his psychological architecture is constructed. I think that he’s someone who carries an enormous amount of guilt and regret about his brother’s condition. He feels that he’s failed his brother, so subsequently, he’s this creature who follows his malevolent brother to all the corners of the earth in pursuit of this ideal that’s really as mercurial as sand between your fingers.” READ FULL STORY

'The Originals': Joseph Morgan on Klaus' greatest threat; plus, a fatherhood edition of 'What Would Klaus Do?'

With every episode of The Originals, Klaus’ list of enemies seems to grow longer. And at this point, he’s got a number of people to worry about (as much as an all-powerful hybrid needs to worry.) There are the witches, who want to kill his unborn child, his father, who’s trying to come back from the dead to kill him, Marcel, who’s readying for battle, and whatever’s going on with that key the humans have … to name a few. But heading into the penultimate episode, Joseph Morgan is most worried about two specific members of the Originals universe.

On the one hand, there’s Mikael, who Morgan identified as “the most terrifying threat,” for Klaus. But in terms of Klaus’ potential for redemption, Morgan is more focused on Klaus’ unborn child. “The emotional investment that Klaus has finally made in his child and the potential for the child to save him, to redeem Klaus is huge, so the witches, Genevieve, particularly, being a threat to his child is pretty worrying as well,” Morgan said.

So basically, Klaus needs to keep his eye on the unborn and the potentially undead. “For Klaus’ person, for his physical form, if Mikael gets his way and is able to get a body and come back somehow, I think Mikael is the biggest threat, but for Klaus’ redemption, for his sanity, for everything that’s good in him, I think that Genevieve at the moment along with Monique is the biggest threat because they take his child and he’ll be going down a pretty dark path, I would imagine.”

And speaking of Klaus’ children, he and Marcel had a great moment last week, in which both affirmed their father-son relationship, and yet, also prepared for a bloody battle. So does Morgan think Klaus will let his feelings get in the way on the battlefield? “[That] is going to be answered on Tuesday,” he said with a chuckle. “He has before let his feelings get in the way at the last minute, [but] he’s also charged at his sister with the white oak stake and only because he was stopped by Elijah did it not happen. I think he tried to stab her a couple of times and was ready to kill her, was ready to end her and then was stopped. I think he’s capable of doing very rash things, which he will deeply regret later, but the potential is there. We’ve seen how much of a monster he can be. He does care for Marcel deeply, Marcel is his adopted son, he raised him and he sired him. There’s a huge love there between those characters, but in the moment, could Klaus do something terrible? Absolutely.”

While we’re talking family, what ever happened to that one member of Klaus’ wolf bloodline that we met? Well, Morgan doesn’t know, but Klaus’ wolf family is a story he’s dying to delve into next season. “That’s a huge untapped resource we have, and I would hope moving into season 2, that we’ll see more of his background, his wolf side. We saw one of his bloodline, and we found this ring that his mother made for his true biological father, so I think the idea of exploring that, certainly for me, is very interesting, because the Klaus we met was very much a vampire. We’ve seen more of the beast in him certainly over the last season, but definitely, we could explore more of that. Wouldn’t it be amazing if we discovered a pack that was descended from his bloodline, so there’s another family of which Klaus is a member, and then you have these two families, and he’s a member of both? I should be pitching this to Julie [Plec]. Season 2, I think we just figured it out!”

So now that we figured that out, we asked Morgan to play a game called What Would Klaus Do: The Fatherhood Edition. It’s pretty much exactly what you think it is. Read his answers below: READ FULL STORY

'The Originals': Charles Michael Davis on Mikael's return, that key, and Marcel getting his 'swagger back'

The Originals‘ Klaus Mikaelson might be the biggest, baddest hybrid around, but it’s a known fact that he has some leftover daddy issues that did not die off with his father. And thanks to some witchy magic, Klaus will get a visit from Mikael this week, as will Hayley and her unborn child. But what exactly are these visions? And how will they affect Klaus’ relationship with Marcel?

We talked with Charles Michael Davis about Mikael’s return, Cami and Marcel, and the return of evil Marcel:

'The Originals': Leah Pipes talks Cami's (sort of) love triangle, more fire stunts, and 'our darkest episode yet'

Being a human in New Orleans isn’t something most people would see as a problem. But in the world of The Originals, it’s a major disadvantage, especially if your uncle has a hex that’s literally driving him mad and you’ve got some sort of weird almost love triangle happening with a vampire and a hybrid. Welcome to Cami’s world.

Last week, we watched Cami beg for Genevieve to help Kieran only to have Klaus ruin it all. And let’s not forget that bit where Klaus found out about Cami and Marcel’s night together. So where do we go from here? Is this thing with Marcel and Klaus a real love triangle? Is there hope for Kieran?

We caught up with Leah Pipes to talk about all of those things, as well as a few O’Connell family secrets, her favorite scene that never aired, and more. Here’s what we learned:

Claire Holt no longer a series regular on 'The Originals'

And then there were two.

EW has confirmed that Tuesday night was Claire Holt’s last episode as a series regular on The Originals, meaning the Original sister has officially left the building, at least in some capacity.

Holt no longer being a regular leaves the door open for her to guest star in future recurring arcs, even as early as sometime later this season, we’re told. However, as of right now, nothing is certain in terms of her potential return.

Both Holt and executive producer Julie Plec are set to attend the PaleyFest panel on March 22.

'The Originals': Mikael's coming to New Orleans -- PHOTO

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.

'Originals' post-mortem: Claire Holt previews Rebekah 'on the run'

The Mikaelson family is possibly in the most fractured state it’s ever been in following Tuesday night’s episode of The Originals.

As chronicled in our recap, the secret is out about Rebekah and Marcel summoning Mikael, and Klaus is not happy about it. In fact, he and his sister had it out and it was pretty clear that one of them was going to die if someone didn’t intervene. Thankfully, that’s when Elijah showed up, stabbed Klaus, and told his sister to get the heck out of town. And according to Claire Holt, so much is easier said than done. “They’re on the run, and they have to decide what the future holds,” she tells EW of Marcel and Rebekah in the next few episodes. “They have to decide if they’re going to leave everything behind or if they’re going to come back and fight.”

The debate, she says, is more complicated than one may assume. “I think Rebekah knows that if they don’t leave, it may be the end of her. Klaus will find a way to put her in a box or ruin her life. She’s very scared. She also knows Marcel’s history with the city and how strongly he feels about it and how easy it won’t be for him to just go,” she says. “So it’s going to be very interesting.”

While Holt declined to spill the details of the pair’s ultimate decision, she teases, “We do have a scene in a car.”

Meanwhile, says Holt, the family will have to contend with being more fractured than ever as threats to their existence mount. And while Holt says the latest episode “won’t be the last time she sees Elijah,” the same can’t be said for Klaus. She doesn’t see Rebekah’s relationship with Klaus healing anytime soon. “I don’t think there’s a way they could ever [come back from this],” she says. “I mean, he’s done some pretty nasty things and she’s forgiven him, so maybe. But I can’t imagine, so… The next few episodes are definitely about [Klaus] dealing with the betrayal and how he feels about it and what he’s going to do.”

In EW’s Google+ Hangout with Holt on Tuesday, she opened up a bit more about filming the latest episode. Skip ahead to the 27-minute mark to hear some behind-the-scenes scoop about her wardrobe troubles during the flashbacks to 1919. READ FULL STORY

'The Originals' First Look: Rebekah and Genevieve nurse patients back to health in 1919 -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS

Last we left New Orleans, there was a new team of witches in town, and they were out for blood. Then again, that could have to do with the fact that the witches weren’t very new at all, but rather very, very old. Thanks to Celeste’s resurrection magic, she now has Bastiana and Genevieve by her side. But the question remains: Why are they looking for vengeance? What is their past with the town?

When The Originals returns on February 25, we’ll get a glimpse into Genevieve’s (Elyse Levesque) history with Rebekah when our favorite Original sister finds herself locked in the same sanatorium where she and Genevieve once worked in 1919. As Rebekah realizes that Genevieve is out for revenge and could reveal a secret that would destroy her, Rebekah immediately flashes back to a the early days of their relationship. READ FULL STORY

'The Originals': Charles Michael Davis previews Marcel's secret, Tyler's whereabouts, and the importance of girl power

When The Originals left us in 2013, Klaus had just offered Marcel the opportunity to reign New Orleans as partners, an offer Marcel accepted before breaking things off with Rebekah. Elsewhere, Elijah and Hayley shared an almost-kiss, and Davina found out that Marcel had been keeping her hidden away for no reason. As a result, the now-angry witch went straight to erase Klaus’ compulsion from Cami’s memory. So what’s next for the supernatural folk of the French Quarter?

We caught up with the man behind co-king Marcel, Charles Michael Davis, to talk about Rebekah, Marcel’s secret, and all things girl power:
