Check out this new interview with Sebastian Roche from E!Online. Will Mikael and Esther come face to face?

“He doesn’t know Esther returned too,” Roche said. “I can’t wait until they meet and find out they’ve both returned. It will be quite interesting when Mikael finds out that he’s surrounded by his entire family again. The emotional ramifications of that encounter will be fascinating. We don’t know if she’s going to come back as who he knew 1,000 years ago, but she’s still the embodiment of his wife. She was someone that he loved deeply and she was torn away from him. Then he took the blame for her death, so of course it’s going to be very emotional.”

Check out the synopsis for The Originals Season 2 Premiere titled “Rebirth”. The episode airs on their new night Monday, October 6th! SPOILER ALERT!

REBUILDING HOMES AND RECRUITING NEW FAMILY – After months of being holed up inside his compound, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) enlists the help of Elijah (Daniel Gillies) and Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) in plotting his revenge against the Guerrera werewolves, and vows to take down anyone who poses a threat to baby Hope’s existence. Elijah watches helplessly as Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) spirals downward while mourning the loss of her daughter and struggling to adapt to her new hybrid status. Exiled by the Guerrera werewolves, who now control the French Quarter, Marcel is still reeling over the destruction of his vampire family, and attempts to rebuild his home with the help of Josh (guest star Steven Krueger). Elsewhere, Cami (Leah Pipes), who is attempting to regain some normalcy in her life, seeks comfort in a surprising place. Last, Davina (Danielle Campbell) continues her plan to use Mikael (guest star Sebastian Roche) against Klaus, but gets sidetracked when she meets the mysterious, yet charming Kaleb (guest star Daniel Sharman), who holds a few secrets of his own. Lance Anderson directed the episode written by Marguerite MacIntyre & Julie Plec (#201). Original airdate 10/6/2014.

the-originals-dvd-bluray-cover-artThanks to Warner Bros. I have had the opportunity to review a copy of The Originals: Complete First Season on Bluray. The set is now available at your local retailers and you can also order your very own copy on Amazon. Click HERE to purchase!

Here are the bonus features this amazing set has to offer:

Pilot Commentary with Creator, Julie Plec and Director, Chris Grismer

This is an awesome way to relive the first episode of The Originals Season One. The episode is a remixing (with added scenes) of the original pilot that aired on The Vampire Diaries in Season 4. It is told through Elijah’s point of view.

Julie and Chris do a great job taking you behind the scenes and explaining how the “magic” was made in the pilot episode.

Deleted Scenes:

This set included more than enough deleted scenes. It’s unfortunate the moments that have to often be cut from episodes due to time constraints. Moments included: Scenes with Josh and Davina, and extended Klaus and Marcel vampires fight scene, and Elijah and Hayley and more. But my favorites were two scenes that were cut from the season finale with Jackson and Oliver. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed.

The Originals: Origins

Julie Plec and the cast take us on a journey on how The Originals characters came to be on The Vampire Diaries and how they ended up with their own show.

The Originals Vampires: A Bite-sized Backstory

Talks a little more about the story of The Originals. It’s basically a montage of scenes of The Originals, including scenes from The Vampire Diaries, giving us a little more history as to where The Originals came from.

The Originals: Re-mixing History

In this featurette, the writers of The Originals do a fantastic job explaining how episodes are created by blending fact with fiction. A cool insight into how these amazing writers do their job…ie. creating one of the best shows on Television.

Other Bonus Features: 2013 San Diego Comic Con Panel, The Originals Panel at PaleyFest 2014

In Summary:

The only thing that I was disappointed in, was the fact that a Blooper/Gag reel was not included in the bonus features. The fans always look forward to those!

But other than that, I have really enjoyed this set. Can’t wait to dive in and watch all of the episodes over again. And for those of you that have never watched The Vampire Diaries or The Originals and are considering it, you won’t be disappointed! I think the producers and writers do a wonderful job making this show it’s on entity, and being a fan of The Vampire Diaries won’t be necessary to enjoy and become in love with this show.

So what are you waiting for? Head out and get your copy today!

 

Check out the latest trailer released by The CW for the upcoming Originals Season 2 Premiere. The season starts, Monday, October 6th on The CW, 8/7c.

Rebirth

Thanks to ETOnline, we’ve got some fresh scoop for The Originals Season 2. Check it out!

We can’t get enough of the Original Family so you can imagine our delight when ET learned that Klaus (Joseph Morgan) will be discovering a secret about his mother that could change everything. Our original hybrid has always kept the horror of his painful childhood close to his chest, but this new revelation could change his entire perspective on his past.

And if there’s one thing we love about this Big Easy-set drama, it’s all of the enlightening flashbacks and epiphany-inducing reveals. For example, did you know that Elijah (Daniel Gilles) and Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) were once extremely close?! Not as tight as Klaus and Marcel, of course, but their friendship will definitely be a delightful surprise for fans to explore in this sophomore season. So what caused their centuries of estrangement? We can’t tell you! But we can tease that your jaws will definitely hit the floor…

Thanks to TV Guide, we have more episode stills from The Originals Season 2 Premiere. Check out the preview below and view the rest overt at TV Guide.

A Closer Walk with Thee

Check out the latest from E!Online‘s Spoiler Chat. See what Papa Original will be up to.

Tommy Klaus Warlow: The Originals-Will we learn in the upcoming flashback with Kol about why he used to hang around the witches?

While we don’t have any news on the Kol front, we did chat with the vengeful Papa Original, Sebastian Roche, about his official return to the show now that Mikael’s been brought back from the dead. “When you have Originals in the title and you’re Papa Original, I knew that I was going to pop my head in eventually,” Roche says with a laugh. “It’s very exciting especially because the first five episodes are pretty intense. It’s going to be quite epic. It’s going to be an epic season, there’s no question about it. We’re in for quite a treat. It’s going to be antagonistic, crazy, gothic, and we’re in store for some amazing confrontations between Mikael and his sons.”

Check out this first look photo from The Originals Season 2 courtesy of TVLine. And see what will be happening with our vamps, werewolves, witches and hybrids when the show returns, on its new night, Monday, October 6th 8/7c on The CW! Spoilers ahead!!

When Season 2 picks up – on a full moon – the Guerrera werewolves “have taken control of the French Quarter,” executive producer Michael Narducci reveals. A grieving Klaus will put all his focus into destroying the threat “to quite catastrophic effect.” Meanwhile, Cami won’t be keeping her distance from the self-destructive Original despite his orders. “They certainly start off in a place where Cami is seeing someone else. Yet, she feels a responsibility [to help Klaus] because she knows she has a connection to this guy – when she speaks, he listens.” As for baby Hope’s mama, newbie hybrid Hayley will get “defensive” and “angry” as she wonders “if [Elijah's] ability to look down on vampires translates to her,” Narducci previews. “Hayley’s new status will force them to have some interesting conversations about what this means for their future.” And as Hayley adapts to her new life, Elijah’s “decision on what to do to help her is going to be a bit surprising.”

BONUS SPOILER | The Originals could be headed back to Mystic Falls. “There’s an interesting possibility for some flashback stuff,” Narducci teases. “Remember, that’s where the Original family was – in ancient Mystic Falls.”
