On Friday, July 25th, it was The CW’s upstart “The Originals'” turn to hold court in Ballroom 20 at Comic-Con, and along with revealing the Season 2 trailer (which of course you can see here), the powers-that-be provided a few tidbits of what’s ahead in the upcoming season.
The premiere is titled “Rebirth,” and while most the characters will be trying to start over, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) only wants one thing: “violent, bloody, merciless revenge.” Meanwhile, Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) will struggle with being a hybrid.
But they may be able to hold their daughter again… We will see Rebekah (Claire Holt) at least one time in Season 2, and it’ll be within the first three episodes. However, the writers are still working out a plan for reuniting baby Hope and her parents.
Look for this season to have, as writer Michael Narducci put it, “a dark, warped fairy tale component.” Davina (Danielle Campbell) will develop feelings for a powerful witch played by newcomer Daniel Sharman, but he may not be trustworthy.
Things really turn explosive when Mikael and Esther return, forcing our heroes to deal with their “monstrous parents” and what that means to them.
As for the inevitable questions about an “Originals”/”Vampire Diaries” crossover and the never-ending Klaus-Caroline shipping, exec producer Julie Plec gave her stock answer of waiting for “an organic opportunity to bring [them] together,” acknowledging there still may be “unfinished business” between the two characters. Personally, I say leave them apart.
In any event, here’s the trailer. Look for lots more soon as we approach the show’s Monday, October 6th, Season 2 premiere.
