Fun news during tonight’s new episode of The Originals: The CW is bringing us a new recap/interview digital series for the show called Secrets from the Quarter and it is hosted by none other than Steven Krueger, aka Josh, First of His Name, Bestest of Best Friends, He Who Shall Never Die.

Well, this isn’t really a producer’s preview now, after the fact, but this video of Michael Narducci and Julie Plec talking about last night’s episode of The Originals is well worth a watch for Julie’s story about how the show’s events reflect actual history in a cool way.
