Thanks to a super-spoilery synopsis for Season 1, Episode 8: “The River in Reverse,” it sounds like Tyler will be arriving in NOLA just in time for the end of November, just as creator Julie Plec promised. Even Joseph Morgan (Klaus Mikaelson) tried to give us a fair warning last month, tweeting, “What an intense week! Episode 8 is going to be the best we've done, I feel it. Oh, you're in for a treat ;) #TheOriginals.” Of course, at that point, a crossover was nothing but a dream, so we’re not kicking ourselves over it.
Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) remains by [Elijah’s] side but is soon drawn away by a mysterious figure who sheds some light on her past. We already know that Tyler is going to be helping out his werewolf friend when he arrives down South, but what he’ll reveal about her past, we can only speculate.
