The extended promo for The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 20, “The Originals” is 46 seconds of non-stop action. We’ll take you through the promo second by second so you can get acquainted with the sights and sounds of New Orleans — and TVD’s potential new spin-off.
0:01 Elena’s (Nina Dobrev) made a jail break!
Just kidding. Pretty sure it’s Katherine.
0:02 And she has good news!
That the Salvatores can’t seem to comprehend.
0:03 Klaus (Joseph Morgan) is gone.
0:04 – 0:05 “The Original Vampire Returns Home”
0:08 Oh, Klaus.
Right. We got it now.
0:09 – 0:10 “The dead stick around to play”
Well, my. Who’s this long-haired narrator? And why is he wearing an ID card and a lanyard?
0:13 Hello, handsome stranger.
Any friend of Klaus’s is a friend of ours. Probably.
0:14 – 0:16 “My mentor, my savior, my sire.”
Aka, the wind beneath my wings.
0:18 Street party
New Orleans already has more people at this one gathering than the entire population of Mystic Falls.
0:19 – 0:21 Klaus is pouty
Every party has a pooper.
0:22 – 0:25 All the things Marcel has.
Power, loyalty, family. No wonder Klaus is a jelly bean.
0:27 – 0:28 Klaus covets.
To be fair, Marcel does look like the best event planner in New Orleans.
0:29 – 0:30 Klaus wants it back.
Ooh, hopefully there will be flashbacks to Klaus’s heyday.
0:31 Strike a match.
But don’t throw them at people, à la Rebekah (Claire Holt).
0:32 Hey, Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin)
Think it’ll be awkward between her and Klaus after their s-e-x?
0:33 Klaus chokes someone.
Clearly this stranger hasn’t been introduced to the hybrid’s highly sensitive nature.
0:34 Candles and such.
0:35 Marcel’s lady friend?
Just a drinking buddy — or a drinking buddy with benefits?
This is what happens when you play with matches and candles.
0:37 Rebekah takes a drink.
Now the real question is, did she follow her brother to New Orleans?
0:38 Elijah (Daniel Gillies) is there.
Good to know he doesn’t get stop wearing suits just because he’s on vacation.
0:39 Klaus and Elijah stroll through the gates.
Very Reservoir Dogs. We like it.
0:40 – 0:41 Some lady stares at some dude.
Sorry, don’t know who either of you are, can’t care about you yet.
0:42 Marcel looks at Klaus
This is a much more relevant showdown to us.
Marcel just knocked out some lady!
0:45 – 0:46 “I want to be king.”
King Klaus does have a nice ring to it.
