After tonight’s epic showdown between Klaus Mikaelson (Joseph Morgan) and Marcel Gerard (Charles Michael Davis), things are definitely heating up down in New Orleans on The Originals. Tensions were high between Klaus and his siblings — Elijah (Daniel Gillies) and Rebekah (Claire Holt) — but he finally won back the city of New Orleans from his former protégé.

In the final moments, Klaus gathered up Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) to take his “little wolf” to his new digs in the French Quarter and leaving his siblings “to rot” out at the plantation. That little line from Henry IV Part 2 (“Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown”) is ringing true more than ever.

According to the promo, Klaus’s first action as King of New Orleans is to set his sights on tackling the werewolf problem out in the bayou. While Hayley is locked up in Klaus’s palace, she’s turning to Elijah and Rebekah to help her save her crescent moon-encrusted family.

Oh yeah, and Klaus is setting someone on fire. Natch.

Check out the promo below and let us know if you’re excited for the next episode!

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