Yes, The Originals is taking a break next week, but KSiteTV has episode stills from The River in Reverse (EP108) to tide your over until Tuesday, November 26th. Check out the image below and then see the rest at KSiteTV.
Entertainment Weekly has our first look at The River in Reverse (EP108), the November 26th episode of The Originals – and it’s an 1820s flashback featuring Klaus and Elijah. Click on the thumbnail to see the full image as well as a second still featuring Elijah.
“Traveling back in time nearly 200 years, the episode will find Klaus and Elijah in 1820, where Klaus is in a dual [sic] with another fellow. From the looks of the photos, either that other fellow is Elijah, or the brothers are merely practicing their shooting skills (which is hilarious/unfair considering a bullet will not kill them).”
The flashbacks are coming, the flashbacks are coming! Entertainment Weekly has an exclusive new still from the second episode of The Originals, titled House Of The Rising Son (EP102).
This time we’re going back to the 1800s, and from the looks of things Klaus wasn’t any mellower back then. The accompanying article also has some hints about the episode. Is it October yet?!
The episode, titled “House of the Rising Son,” finds Rebekah (Claire Holt) arriving in New Orleans at the insistence of good brother Elijah (Daniel Gillies) and worrying that bad brother Klaus is up to no good. Klaus, of course, is scheming against his former-protégé-turned-rival Marcel for control of the French Quarter in the present day, and Marcel has his own dangerous plan afoot.
E!Online has our first look at the October 3rd premiere of The Originals. Looks like we can expect flashbacks and the return of a gone-too-soon guest star.
With flashbacks playing such a major role on The Vampire Diaries, fans can expect to see even more on The Originals given the fact that Klaus, Elijah and Rebekah have clocked some thousand years. “I’ve read the first two scripts and I am just so excited. They both feature elements of flashback,” Morgan recently told us. “They’re both really on a larger scale. This is a war we’re building toward.”
First up, Alloy Entertainment interviewed Charles Michael Davis, who plays Marcel on The Originals. We love Marcel, so we’re excited at the prospect of learning more about him once the season starts.
Alloy Entertainment: Will we get glimpses into Marcel’s past at all?
Charles Michael Davis: You’ll definitely learn more about how he got to this point in his life. He was a street rat, kind of came from nothing, and he’s crafty. And so I think we’re going to discover firsthand what that experience was like for Marcel — of growing up on the streets of New Orleans and making that turn; of becoming confident and transitioning from an Aladdin life into a leadership role.
Zap2it caught up with The Originals‘ Phoebe Tonkin, who had some things to say about her character’s plotline (spoiler alert for The Originals, EP420) and also wanted to say something about a popular pairing:
“Can I go, first, on the record, and say Team Klaroline,” she says. “Please. I’m on the team. I’m on the team!”
Hollywood Crush interviewed Joseph Morgan and Daniel Gillies on the topic of possible flashbacks on the new series.
On this week’s Vampire Diaries Bite at TV Guide, Ian Somerhalder talks about Damon in the 1970s and his relationship with Lexi, as well as his feelings toward Elena at the moment: “Damon gets another side of Elena that really solidifies that he’s not a fan of her current state.”
ETOnline interviewed Ian Somerhalder this morning about the recent happenings in Mystic Falls and, just in case you thought everything might be puppies and rainbows… Oh, who are we kidding? No one who watches this show ever thinks that. And Ian more or less confirms that the road is still rocky.
ETonline: It’s also got to be exciting as an actor that TVD allows you to play your character at various points in their life. We’ve seen Damon throughout the decades, and next week shows him circa 1970.
Somerhalder: Yeah, you hit the nail on the head. Our artisans and production design team went in and not only re-built CBGB’s but recreated the feeling of the ’70s [in Because the Night, airing March 21]. It’s so cool because you get to experience so many times in [Damon's] life. Now mind you, because there were so many decades, I think he evolved slower than most. I also love that because we get to go back and romanticize the social happenings of that time, we’re really reminded of The United States’ deep history and what Damon lived through is just a drop in the bucket compared to the other characters, who can go back thousands of years.
