The Originals has only just begun to uncover the first family's wealth of secrets.
On last week's episode, Esther (Sonja Sohn) took her son Elijah (Daniel Gillies) captive and forced him to remember the horrifying acts he had done as a vampire — namely killing his love Tatia (Nina Dobrev) — in order to further persuade him to undo his vampirism.

The case of the week is based on the (eventually dismissed) 2004 sexual harassment lawsuit brought against several of the NBC comedy's writers by a former writer's assistant. "Lockhart/Gardner gets in trouble," co-creator Robert King says. "One of their paralegals sues the firm for sexually harassing her and the firm unfortunately can't represent itself. So, over David Lee's objections, they go to Elsbeth Tascioni [recent Emmy winner Carrie Preston] to try to defend them." Will she be there for them?
James Remar as Alex's dad on Grey's Anatomy is great casting! Do you have any details? — Barbara
We suspected he was out there somewhere. After all, dead supervillains usually are. But who knew General Hospital's Jerry Jacks — played by Sebastian Roché — was behind the staged death and disappearance of Dr. Robin Scorpio? That head-scratching news, delivered in Friday's episode of the ABC soap, is just the start of a major revenge plan orchestrated by the Aussie badass.
