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.
Michael Trevino makes his The Originals debut in tomorrow night’s all-new episode, Bloodletting (EP107), and he’s dropping teases about Tyler’s New Orleans agenda and who may or may not be in his vengeance-hungry hybrid crosshairs.
Also fueling Tyler’s desire for revenge? Not only has Klaus killed his mother, but also his crush on Caroline led to the eventual “Forwood” breakup. “Klaus has always wanted to be with Caroline and he’s made that very clear. And his infatuation with her still exists,” Trevino says. “It’s kind of tough. We can only do that love triangle between Klaus and Caroline and Tyler for so long. So I’m glad that with what’s happening now, we’ve kind of finally put an end to that. Whether that’s good or bad for Tyler remains to be seen. But we’re finally going to address that and leave it and hopefully never touch on it again.”
How is the relationship between Hayley and Tyler when they reunite?
Trevino: It’s not good. She backstabbed him, and so Tyler is really coming to New Orleans as a villain.
Ultimate revenge on Klaus could be killing Hayley and his baby. Do you think he has it in him to be that evil?
Trevino: I do. Tyler has always been surrounded by death, and Klaus killed his mother, and Hayley had something to do with that. So is it in him? Absolutely.
And be sure to check out Michael’s set video interview via TV Fanatic:
What can we expect from Tyler’s “second act of revenge” against his hybrid nemesis, as Trevino described to TV Fanatic yesterday on The Vampire Diaries set?
Might this actually be a suicide mission?!?
Phoebe Tonkin, Daniel Gillies, and Joseph Morgan discuss the hazards of falling for the mother of your brother’s unborn child with E!Online. As all things Original go, it’s indeed complicated:
“There’s the idea that Elijah is usurping his role as father. Having this family is what Elijah wants most; family above all. He’s taking on that role and that is addressed in the show,” [Joseph Morgan] explains. “We’re not beating around that bush. We’ll absolutely make reference to the fact that you might think that he’s the father with the way that he’s acting. That’s a lot of fun. I think that was a really fair decision from the writers to create that romantic tension between those two characters because that really messes with Klaus.”

Looking for a little taster of what’s to come in House of the Rising Son (EP102) at 8/7c tonight? Joseph Morgan talks about Klaus, family, New Orleans, and how alcohol is an excellent bargaining chip.
HAPPY SERIES PREMIERE DAY! The Originals: Always and Forever (EP101) airs TONIGHT at 9/8c after the Season 5 premiere of The Vampire Diaries. Lots of interviews and such hitting the web today, so quick hits:
“Klaus is an anti-hero. He’s an antagonist. He’s always going to have that edge. That idea that no matter how good he is, he can always just mess it up for himself.”
So he won’t be selling Girl Scout cookies?
“I mean, maybe poisonous Girl Scout cookies,” Morgan says with a sneaky smile. “To girl scouts.”
The Associated Press (via Huffington Post) – ‘The Originals’ Premiere: Joseph Morgan On Klaus’ Weakness And His Fanboy Side:
AP: Klaus was a big deal on “The Vampire Diaries.” He was talked about before he showed up on the show. Did you realize how important the role was to the story?
Morgan: I thought about like, ‘You know, maybe he should have a different name like they could call him like William or something.’ And then I looked up (the character) online and I was like, ‘Oh, no. This is already an established thing. We can’t go changing this.’
The Hollywood Reporter – ‘The Originals’ Preview: Charles Michael Davis on Marcel’s Kryptonite and Klaus’ Nightmare
How much more of Marcel’s background or journey can you reveal?
[Executive producer] Julie [Plec] laid it out in a way where all the regulars are connected in ways that we didn’t really imagine. She told us at our first table read, “All right, this is what’s going on with you and you …” We’re like, “That’s really detailed, that’s intricate, that’s deep.” Deep in the sense that you get a good feeling of it. Plus, in The Originals, being alive for a few thousand years, it’s a small world. All the characters have crossed paths. Given the fact that Marcel runs New Orleans, I’m sure he has relationships with everybody in that city.
As seen in the premiere, Sophie (Daniella Pineda) is the witch embroiled in the battle between Klaus and Marcel. And now that she’s gotten mixed up in Hayley’s baby drama, she probably wishes she’d never gotten involved. “She was never terribly invested in all of this and it’s all come down on her [since Marcel killed her sister],” Pineda says. “She’s under a terrible amount of pressure, but she’s being so careful and she’s so calculating that even though she’s terrified, she’s not going to show it. She’s also more powerful than people think.”
And here’s a super-fun piece from Entertainment Weekly: ‘The Originals’ star Joseph Morgan steals from EW offices.
In advance of the series premiere of The Originals tonight, star Phoebe Tonkin spoke with Access Hollywood about Hayley’s search for information about her past, her relationships with Klaus and Elijah, and how she feels about unexpectedly becoming a mother.
Access: How scared at this point is she about becoming a mother?
Phoebe: You know, that’s the thing which is kind of the sad part about Hayley is that she went there looking for a family and still hasn’t found her parents, but [is on the way to becoming] one herself. I don’t think Hayley is as scared of having this child as she is [of] the threat of being a pregnant werewolf in a place where werewolves have been banned. She, I think, is still a little scared of Klaus. She knows that Klaus can be a little relentless in terms of what he does and doesn’t do, even in terms of his own family, let alone someone he got pregnant.

Hayley created a big stir when she first turned up in Mystic Falls. In this interview with ETonline, Phoebe Tonkin talks about the fans’ reaction to the character and how we may find her to be more sympathetic on The Originals.
ETonline: The fans love you, the fans loved TSC’s Faye, but they didn’t so much love Hayley. Why do you think that is?
Phoebe Tonkin: I get very involved in TV shows too, so I understand how it feels when you have one character coming in between two characters people have grown really fond of, but I don’t think Hayley was ever really a threat to Caroline and Tyler or Caroline and Klaus. It just happens they were unsafe, so now they’re dealing with the consequences of something that wasn’t supposed to go beyond on night. In terms of the fans, Julie and I have discussed this and she really enjoys the challenge this presents because the fans have already decided how they feel about this character, and now it’s up to Julie and the writers and me to get the fans on Hayley’s side. That’s an exciting challenge. I believe the fans can empathize with Hayley.
TV Guide caught up with The Originals star Phoebe Tonkin on set recently, and asked about how Klaus and Hayley will be getting along now that they’re becoming parents together.
“Each episode is different. They go between resenting each other and protecting each other a little bit,” Tonkin says. “But they have some really beautiful moments. They’re both in this … and are in situations they didn’t ask for. … [They] realize they’re now the parents of something else and they can’t be as selfish.”
Well, things are looking . . . bloody. Just over a week before The Originals premieres, a Hollywood Reporter exclusive brings us eight new character posters, all veiled in blood. Click on Marcel below to see their whole gallery.
