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.
