The much anticipated "The Originals" backdoor pilot episode of The Vampire Diaries is only one week away and the CW has released an early video preview. Klaus leaves Mystic Falls, heads down to New Orleans and is reunited with his protege, Marcel. Elijah and Rebekah will join their brother in the Big Easy, while Hayley ends up there too.
Spoiler alert: This article contains The Vampire Diaries spoilers and clips.
Here's the official synopsis: Acting on a mysterious tip that a plot is brewing against him in New Orleans, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) makes a trip to the town he and his family helped build. Klaus' questions lead him to a reunion with his former protege, Marcel (guest star Charles Michael Davis), a charismatic vampire who has total control over the human and supernatural inhabitants of New Orleans. Determined to help his brother find redemption, Elijah (Daniel Gillies) follows Klaus and soon learns that Hayley (guest star Phoebe Tonkin) has also come to the French Quarter searching for clues to her family history, and has fallen into the hands of a powerful witch named Sophie (guest star Daniella Pineda). Meanwhile, in Mystic Falls, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Stefan (Paul Wesley) continue with their plan for Elena (Nina Dobrev), while Katherine (Nina Dobrev) reveals a surprising vulnerability to Rebekah (Claire Holt) and asks her to deliver a message.
Check out the preview.
Highlights from "The Originals" trailer:
- "Klaus is gone."
- "Welcome to the dark side of New Orleans. Where the living are easily lost and the dead stick around and play."
- Klaus has a fresh and confident swagger walking through the streets.
- Marcel greets Klaus, "My mentor, my savior, my sire."
- "Marcel has got everything I have ever wanted. Power. Loyalty. Family. I want what he has. I want it back." -- Klaus
- Hayley gets surprise in the woods.
- Lots of partying in New Orleans, as expected. A big difference from the small town of Mystic Falls.
- Elijah and Rebekah are there too.
- "I want to be king." -- Klaus
"The Originals" preview looks outstanding. I love this fierce Klaus that wants power and is willing to get it. Would you watch a series based on Klaus, his siblings, Marcel, Hayley and some witches?
The Vampire Diaries airs on Thursdays at 8 pm ET on the CW.
