Can anyone be trusted on The Originals? We’re starting to realize that each supernatural in the French Quarter has his or her own agenda, but will two surprising forces form an unlikely alliance in Season 1, Episode 7 (“Bloodletting”)?

When Tyler comes to town looking for revenge, he might need some backup. Sure, he might have learned a few tricks up in the Appalachian mountains, but can he really take down the Original hybrid by force alone? So we think the best plan of attack for Tyler would be to team up with Marcel, Klaus’s frenemy in the Big Easy.

Charles Michael Davis recently hinted that “Marcel might be one” who Tyler forms an alliance with, and while we’re not entirely sure if this dream pairing will come to fruition, we sure hope it does. Not only does it give Tyler more to do — can you imagine the hybrid going toe-to-toe with charismatic Marcel — it also spices things up for Klaus, who is in desperate need of a plot device to make us care about him again.

Not to mention Tyler and Marcel both know Klaus quite well and could use their intel to help strategize a game plan. (However, Davina’s connection with Elijah will undoubtedly make things more complicated.) And given that Tyler most likely has Hayley (she never invited Marcel in, remember?), the pregnant little wolf could be the bargaining chip they need to make Klaus crack.

Plus, Marcel could really use a male confidante after he locked Thierry up in the “The Garden.” Could Tyler fill that position? Could he really become Marcel’s right-hand man? Now that would be a surprising twist! Tyler may not be able to play the trumpet, but he is a hybrid.

What do you think, Originals fans? Should Tyler and Marcel team up? Sound off in the comments below!
