After last week's epic episode, we know so much about what’s going on down in New Orleans on The Originals. Sure, Episode 5 (“Sinners and Saints”) didn’t have a ton of action, but the amount of backstory that was revealed is quite astounding. Just as Elijah Mikaelson (Daniel Gillies) predicted, it’s all about family — not necessarily a battle to control the French Quarter.
The preview for Episode 6 (“Fruit of the Poisoned Tree”), we see Sophie Deveraux (Daniella Pineda) attacked by one of her fellow witches, getting some sort of tranquil injected into her neck. At first we were worried about Sophie, but then it showed that the effects were being felt by Hayley Marshall (Phoebe Tonkin) — Klaus Mikaelson’s (Joseph Morgan) baby mama.
It seems like the witches are really opposed to the hybrid baby being born and will stop at nothing to see that it’s destroyed, leading to an intense scene with Elijah holding Hayley in a pool — hello, we’re already shipping these two — and the older witch telling Klaus, “[Sophie’s] linked to your devil child. It’s just a matter of time.”
Just a matter of time? Is the baby in danger? Check out the promo for yourselves and hit the comments to let us know what you think is up!
