The CW has released the synopsis for Episode 2.03 titled “Every Mother’s Son”. Spoiler Alert!!!

ALICE EVANS (“THE VAMPIRE DIARIES”) GUEST STARS IN FLASHBACKS TO THE MIKAELSONS’ CHILDHOOD AND SONJA SOHN (“THE WIRE”) GUEST STARS AS NEW WITCH LENORE — When Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Elijah (Daniel Gillies) receive a cryptic invitation to dinner from their mother Esther, who continues to inhabit the body of Harvest girl Cassie (guest star Natalie Dreyfuss), they find themselves preparing for the worst.  With the help of a new witch named Lenore (guest star Sonja Sohn), Klaus, Elijah and Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) attempt to stay one step ahead of Esther, but things quickly take an unexpected turn.  While Elijah finds himself reluctantly teaming up with Gia (guest star Nishi Munshi), a newly-turned vampire, Hayley is faced with an enticing proposition about her new status as a Hybrid after a startling encounter with Esther.  Finally, Esther reveals a shocking secret about Klaus’ childhood and unveils her ultimate plan for her children.  Charles Michael Davis also stars.  Dermott Downs directed the episode written by Christopher Hollier (#203).  Original airdate 10/20/2014.

the-originals-season-2-cast-portraits-7EW caught up with Papa Original himself, Sebastian Roche to talk The Originals and what Mikael has been up to.

I know there’s a four-month time jump at the start of season 2, so what has Mikael been up to this whole time? Has he just been stuck in the attic?

At the beginning of the season, he’s still stuck in the attic with Davina, but he’s trying to find ways, of course, to basically force her to free him, but you know of course she won’t do that. He really is trying to free himself from these chains because Mikael wants to roam the world and get to his revenge as soon as possible. It does start there and you’ll see what happens. It’s going to be quite wonderful what happens in the rest of the series. I have a feeling that the way the season 2 is going, it’s going to be a mixture of the sort of Gothic tale and Shakespearean tragedy, which I love, personally.

TV Fanatic was one of a lucky few to get to see the season premiere of The Originals yesterday and has some teases for us. Check out a sneak peek, and then read the rest over at TV Fanatic.

It’s A Family Affair: With Mikael and Esther back with big plans of their own, watch for the second season to be very heavy on family dynamics that, of course, lean towards the dramatic and dysfunctional.

“I think our hope was that this would be the season about the return of mother and father,” Narducci explained. “There’s a lot of family stuff that we need to get out. I think that’s the big theme of this season is the past returning to haunt you and enemies who are even more dangerous because they know you intimately.” Should make for an interesting Thanksgiving later this fall, right?

Rebekah Is Anything But Gone: Don’t count the lovely blonde out this season, even though she left with Baby Hope in the finale. And since reports have come out of Claire Holt being seen on set, Narducci wasn’t about to play dumb.

“I’m not going to try to hide anything,” he said. “We’re going to see Rebekah, we’re going to see Baby Hope and that’s going to be an important thing. As to what Esther’s plan for that baby is…Esther thinks that the baby died. Esther doesn’t know where Rebekah is.”

EW caught up with our favorite Original Hybrid, Joseph Morgan for a chat on what’s to come for Klaus and the rest of the crew in The Originals Season 2. Check out this scoop about an upcoming flashback and which brother will be returning.

Are we going to get more flashbacks that delve into Klaus’ relationship with Esther?

Yes. We’ve filmed some already. His relationship with his parents in general and the truth behind all of those stories and all of that stuff. You know, when we first featured young Klaus and young Elijah back in episode 16 of season one—that mammoth episode where Rebekah, Elijah, and Klaus were all trapped in the graveyard—and we started with young Klaus and young Rebekah and he gave her the chess piece, which Klaus then gave to his child later on, those kids were so good. Aiden [Flowers] is the kid who played young Klaus, and he was so good, I thought, “This is a relief, because he can share a little of the burden.” I knew he’d be back. He was too good for them not to bring him back, so we’re hoping to see more of them as children and really where the roots of the problem started.

And in addition to his parents, Klaus has another brother in town. Will we find out relatively quickly which brother it is?

Yes.

Regardless of whether it’s Kol or Finn, it’s not a good thing for Klaus.

No. I mean, I would say potentially Finn would be a worse thing, but—well, no, he wasn’t on great terms with Kol when Kol died. But I know he mourned Kol. He didn’t mourn Finn.

He also put Finn in a box for 900 years.

Yeah, Finn potentially would be more pissed, I think, but Kol is probably capable of causing more trouble and has the inclination to do so. He’s certainly more vindictive. But the guy who plays said brother Yusuf Gatewood is a bloody fantastic actor, so you’re going to really enjoy watching this guy. He’s really, really good.

Check out the latest Originals Season 2 scoop from TV Guide and MEGA Spoilers from TVLine.

Via TV Guide’s Mega Buzz:

Any more scoop on Originals-Vampire Diaries crossover? — Lisa

After we heard that Nina Dobrev will be making an appearance as Tatia, we pressed Originals star Joseph Morgan for details. And it sounds like a very juicy flashback involving Tatia, Esther and her two sons. “You’re going to get insight into Klaus and Esther’s relationship, but also Elijah and Esther’s relationship and what happened back then,” Morgan said. “We’re grateful for Nina coming over… so we could tell that story because I think it needed to be told and it definitely informed who the brothers are today.”

Via TVLine’s Ask Ausiello:

Question: Any intel on Nina Dobrev’s crossover to The Originals?  —Jacob

Ausiello: How’s this intel for you, Jacob? When asked if Tatia’s scenes with Elijah and Klaus would be “steamy,” or if they’d be all talk, Nina Dobrev answered, “A little bit of both, in different capacities. … I’m always going to be in a love triangle. I can’t escape it, so I might as well just accept it.”

Question: Will we learn in the upcoming Originals flashbacks with Kol about why he used to hang around the witches? —Tom

Ausiello: The flashback stories will kick in as early as Episodes 2 and 3, but it remains to be seen if that particular mystery will be answered. As for what will be explored, “You’re going to get see a little bit more of how the Originals wound up leaving Europe and coming to America,” executive producer Michael Narducci previews. “There’s definitely a reference to some things that we mentioned onVampire Diaries, especially in the teaser of [Episode 2].” The EP also hints that we’ll learn how Kol came to be daggered.

Question: Hey, Ausiello. We’ve heard a lot of spoilers about Hayley, Klaus and Elijah on The Originals, but do you have any spoilers about Camille, her love interests and her role this season? —Mel

Ausiello: Despite trying to distance herself from the supernatural, Cami will get pulled back in thanks to her friendships with Marcel, Josh and Davina. Plus, she’s feeling a bit guilty over baby Hope’s death “because she didn’t act fast enough, she didn’t embrace the inheritance that Kieran left for her,” Narducci explains. “She feels a certain amount of responsibility. Now she’s thinking, ‘If I don’t get involved, maybe Davina’s going to wind up in trouble. If I don’t get involved, maybe Klaus is going to spiral out of control.’”
