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.
The Originals executive producers Julie Plec and Michael Narducci preview next week’s ALL-NEW episode, Long Way Back from Hell (EP114), airing Tuesday, February 25th. Check out what’s next after Crescent City (EP113), which Narducci says the writers called “our Empire Strikes Back episode.” Just a guess, but we think Elijah means business.
The CW has released the official synopsis of The Originals: Farewell to Storyville (EP116), airing Tuesday, March 11th, at 8/7c. Highlight for spoilers:
TRAPPED IN THE CITY OF THE DEAD — Despite Klaus’ (Joseph Morgan) rage, Elijah (Daniel Gillies) is determined to protect Rebekah (Claire Holt) while the three of them are trapped in the City of the Dead cemetery by a witch’s boundary spell.
