After the Elijah Mikaelson (Daniel Gillies) lovefest that was the backdoor pilot of The Originals, we're ready for the dark, sexy ride that this season is sure to be. Now that we know this series is going to focus on Klaus Mikaelson (Joseph Morgan) and Hayley Marshall’s (Phoebe Tonkin) unborn hybrid baby (or whatever is rumbling around in that tummy), we’re excited to see how the little bundle of joy stirs up trouble.
Episode 2, titled “House of the Rising Sun” is going to see Rebekah’s (Claire Holt) arrival in New Orleans. She’s going to hear some unexpected news from Hayley (read: Auntie Rebekah) and realize that Klaus is causing trouble, leading her to turn to Sophie (Daniella Pineda) for help.
We know that family is going to be huge this season, but what is next for the OG family, especially now that Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) has shown us his secret weapon, Davina (Danielle Campbell).
In the promo, we see that Marcel and Rebekah have a romantic past (in an awesome flashback to the 1800s), see Rebekah in an adorable angel outfit, and see just how crazy the battle between Klaus and Marcel is going to be.
What really strikes us about the promo is that Marcel and Rebekah seem to be getting hot and heavy, but that Klaus shows up to ruin their little party by throwing Marcel (and his ripped body) against the wall and aiming a rapier at his chest. It looks like their relationship has always been a little rocky, even when Klaus was on top. This dynamic is going to be incredible to unfold this season.
