We love a good throwdown around here, and last night’s episode of The Originals delivered. Bloodletting (EP107) featured a straight up beat down between Klaus and Tyler, with Joseph Morgan and Michael Trevino going all out for the scene. TV Guide has some exclusive behind the scenes photos of the fight, check out the action at TV Guide!
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.”
If you watched The Vampire Diaries last night, you saw this epic teaser for the next episode of The Originals, Bloodletting (EP107). It’s a rumble in the bayou, y’all.
Crossover alert! There’s been a lot of speculation about whether or not there will be any traffic between Mystic Falls and New Orleans, and as Entertainment Weekly exclusively confirmed last week, Michael Trevino will be the first to make the trip. Tyler Lockwood will be heading South to The Originals, and everybody has questions about it.
“The crossover is happening very soon,” Plec teased. “I’m fairly certain we will see our first glimpse of Tyler before November is over. It will answer a couple of questions, one of which is at least answering the first piece of the mystery of the protective wolf.”

It’s been widely rumored, and now the news is confirmed by Michael Trevino himself: According to Entertainment Weekly, his character Tyler Lockwood will be appearing on The Originals.
”A lot of fans are upset that Tyler has made the decision to leave as soon as he shows up. I’m getting a little bit of flack for it on the Twitterverse here,” Trevino says. “I just want to say everything will be explained, and I think Tyler will make it good once he shows up to The Originals…. I think everybody will be happy with Tyler’s reasoning when they see what he’s been up to and what he has planned.”
No word yet on exactly when he’ll be showing up or for how many episodes.

In the latest TV Guide on-set video interview, Candice Accola discusses the relationship between Caroline and Tyler and how it might evolve in season five.
“They definitely care for each other, but we’ll see that things have changed,” Accola says. “It does parallel what young relationships go through when they move to college and are in two separate places. You’re trying to figure out yourself and your life and your path and trying to meet other people. It’s a lot for a relationship to withstand. So, we’ll see how long she’s able to do that.”
The CW has uploaded a brief video with Michael Trevino. While the actor doesn’t reveal much about season 5, he does talk about the moments he enjoyed most in season 4.
TV Guide has more from their post-mortem interview with Julie Plec. Warning: If you haven’t watched through Stand By Me (EP415), best avoid some major spoilers. And, in case you missed it yesterday, check out our EP415 post-mortem round-up.
The second half the season will be more grounded in high school. What can we expect?
Plec: We just started shooting the prom episode, which is episode 19 and graduation is going to be the finale. We’ll get to end the season with all of those great questions of who’s going to be where, who’s going to be with who, who’s going to do what.
