Marcel Gerard (Charles Michael Davis) may have pacified things with Klaus Mikaelson (Joseph Morgan) at the end of Season 1. However, when The Originals picks up with Season 2 this fall, the conniving vamp will be adding a very surprising face to his team.


“Marcel is going to have his own agenda with what to do now that his community has been decimated,” executive producer Michael Narducci told TV Guide. “He finds very quickly a connection to Josh.”

It sounds like Marcel is still hungry for power and plotting something, though we’d like to think that all the vampires in the French Quarter will be banding together to keep the werewolves and witches in their place this season. Also, let’s not forget that Mikael and Esther Mikaelson are both very much alive and ready to cause trouble.

But what’s shocking us more than knowing Marcel is up to his old tricks? The fact that he’s growing closer to Josh Rosza (Steven Krueger)! Davina Claire’s (Danielle Campbell) BFF has had his life threatened quite a few times already on the show, so perhaps this is an effort to stay alive — which is a very good thing considering the Other Side collapsed thanks to the Mystic Falls crew on The Vampire Diaries.

Davina has had her fair share of ups and downs with Marcel, so his teaming up with Josh might cause waves between the teenage besties. We can’t wait to see how she feels about this dynamic duo!

Are you surprised that Marcel and Josh are teaming up next season? Hit the comments and sound off!
