The Originals is about to put the "fun" in family dysfunction.
The CW series, which returns for its second season Monday, is setting the stage for a crazy reunion when Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Elijah (Daniel Gillies) realize that their mother and father — and brother — have been resurrected back into their lives. For the brothers, confronting the years of pain and destruction the Original parents left in their wake comes at a time when the two, as well as Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin), have already hit despair, having lost the people — and their city — that mean most to them.
The Originals' Klaus is about to become a baby daddy, but will that change anything in the villainous vampire?
"I hope so," Joseph Morgan tells TVGuide.com. "There is certainly potential for it. If Klaus sees the baby or gets to hold the baby, I don't know if it'll make him go more in that [nurturing] direction or send him the other way. I can see him not being able to handle it. With him becoming a father it's interesting to see how that affects his bloodlust."
The war is about to reach fever pitch on The Originals, but Klaus (Joseph Morgan) has an even bigger threat on his mind: his father.
As crazy things started happening on the other side, Klaus' dead evil stepfather Mikael (Sebastian Roche) managed to appear not only in Klaus' dreams, but also in the dreams of those connected to Klaus. In the final minutes of last week's episode, Mikael approached witch Davina (Danielle Campbell) with a way to take down Klaus once and for all.
The Originals' Cami is about to take desperate measures to save the only family she has left in New Orleans.
After her uncle Kieran (Todd Stashwick) was hit with a deadly curse, Cami (Leah Pipes) — one of the only humans on the show — believed she got a witch to reverse the spell. But after Klaus (Joseph Morgan) went and screwed that up, Cami will be forced to do anything she can to keep Kieran from dying.
The Originals' Rebekah and Klaus are about to go through living Hell.
At the end of the last episode, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Rebekah (Claire Holt) had been taken by the new band of witches, dead set on exacting their revenge. From the first minute of Tuesday's episode (8/7c, The CW), the two are in dire circumstances, separated, and being tortured. What unravels is not for the faint of heart.
