The extended promo for The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 20, “The Originals” is 46 seconds of non-stop action. We’ll take you through the promo second by second so you can get acquainted with the sights and sounds of New Orleans — and TVD’s potential new spin-off.



0:01 Elena’s (Nina Dobrev) made a jail break!

Just kidding. Pretty sure it’s Katherine.


0:02 And she has good news!

That the Salvatores can’t seem to comprehend.


0:03 Klaus (Joseph Morgan) is gone.

But where?


0:04 – 0:05 “The Original Vampire Returns Home”



0:08 Oh, Klaus.

Right. We got it now.


0:09 – 0:10 “The dead stick around to play”

Well, my. Who’s this long-haired narrator? And why is he wearing an ID card and a lanyard?


0:13 Hello, handsome stranger.

Any friend of Klaus’s is a friend of ours. Probably.


0:14 – 0:16 “My mentor, my savior, my sire.”

Aka, the wind beneath my wings.


0:18 Street party

New Orleans already has more people at this one gathering than the entire population of Mystic Falls.


0:19 – 0:21 Klaus is pouty

Every party has a pooper.


0:22 – 0:25 All the things Marcel has.

Power, loyalty, family. No wonder Klaus is a jelly bean.


0:27 – 0:28 Klaus covets.

To be fair, Marcel does look like the best event planner in New Orleans.


0:29 – 0:30 Klaus wants it back.

Ooh, hopefully there will be flashbacks to Klaus’s heyday.


0:31 Strike a match.

But don’t throw them at people, à la Rebekah (Claire Holt).


0:32 Hey, Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin)

Think it’ll be awkward between her and Klaus after their s-e-x?


0:33 Klaus chokes someone.

Clearly this stranger hasn’t been introduced to the hybrid’s highly sensitive nature.


0:34 Candles and such.

General witchery.


0:35 Marcel’s lady friend?

Just a drinking buddy — or a drinking buddy with benefits?


0:36 Fire!

This is what happens when you play with matches and candles.


0:37 Rebekah takes a drink.

Now the real question is, did she follow her brother to New Orleans?


0:38 Elijah (Daniel Gillies) is there.

Good to know he doesn’t get stop wearing suits just because he’s on vacation.


0:39 Klaus and Elijah stroll through the gates.

Very Reservoir Dogs. We like it.


0:40 – 0:41 Some lady stares at some dude.

Sorry, don’t know who either of you are, can’t care about you yet.


0:42 Marcel looks at Klaus

This is a much more relevant showdown to us.


0:43 Gasp!

Marcel just knocked out some lady!


0:45 – 0:46 “I want to be king.”

King Klaus does have a nice ring to it.
