It's the reunion The Originals has been building to all season long.
On Monday's midseason finale, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) will finally get to see the child they gave up to protect in the show's first season finale. And that's not the only big reunion of the night. The episode will also feature Original parents Esther (Sonja Sohn) and Mikael (Sebastian Roche) coming face-to-face for the first time in 1,000 years. But while the first of the two meetings will be filled with joy, it's also fraught with the terror that looms if and when Esther learns the Mikaelson firstborn is alive and well.
The Originals' resident human has figured out how to get to Vincent, and she's wasting no time in manipulating him with her feminine wiles.
The Originals: Who's returning from Klaus' past as part of Esther's "diabolical plan"?
Just as Cami (Leah Pipes) was going to stab her "adviser" Vincent (Yusuf Gatewood), aka Finn, last week, she realized there was an even better way to uncover the Original brother's plan of attack: flirting with him! In the exclusive clip from Monday's episode below, the two meet for another session, during which Cami hints that she has feelings for him. How does Vincent react? Will he see through her?
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. But on Monday's episode (8/7c, CW) it's Esther's turn to reveal all when viewers finally learn much more of her back story that led to her strong convictions today.
