The Originals Promo: Season 1, Episode 21 — “The Battle of New Orleans” (VIDEO)

Now that we’ve finally laid Father Kieran to rest, it’s time for a knock-down, drag-out fight for the control of the French Quarter on The Originals. Season 1, Episode 21 (“The Battle of New Orleans”) will be the ultimate showdown between Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) — but which alpha will rise to the top?

“If we don’t take a stand, our lives aren’t worth a damn anyway,” Marcel shouts to his army of vamps in the promo for next week’s episode, psyching them up for the big fight.

Marcel’s speech must have accomplished what he wanted, because we then see everyone gathered at the La Casa Mikaelson. “You’ll surrender this time,” Marcel teases to Klaus. Yikes! But, as we all know, Klaus isn’t going to back down that easily.

It isn’t just Marcel that Klaus has to worry about next week, though. Davina (Danielle Campbell) seems to have taken a stand against the hybrid, seemingly joining forces with his dad at the end of this week’s episode.

“Klaus isn’t the only thing we need to be afraid of,” she warns. Would she really revive Mikael? That would probably be the most tragic of outcomes — which is why we think it might just come true.

What do you think about next week’s episode? Whose side are you on: Klaus or Marcel? Hit the comments and let us know!

The Originals airs Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
