The waiting is far too long between episodes, but finally, our favorite show THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, is back with a new episode tonight. Tonight’s show is called, “The Originals,” and on tonight’s show we get a taste of the potential spinoff in a backdoor pilot. Joseph Morgan who plays Klaus had this to say about the potential show, “‘The Originals’ would be much more about vampires who like being vampires, there’s no sweet misguided teens who need saving here.” Did you watch last week’s episode? We did, and you can get up to date before tonight’s show, here!
On the last episode after making a decision that infuriated Klaus, Elijah proposed a life-changing challenge for Rebekah. Caroline found that her carefully laid plans for the perfect Senior Prom night were disrupted by Elena, so she turned to an amused Klaus for a solution. Determined to get through to Elena, Damon and Stefan both attended the prom, but the evening began to spiral out of control despite their efforts.
On tonight’s show – KLAUS RETURNS TO HIS PAST IN NEW ORLEANS — Acting on a mysterious tip that a plot is brewing against him in New Orleans, Klaus makes a trip to the town he and his family helped build. Klaus’ questions lead him to a reunion with his former protégé, Marcel (guest star Charles Michael Davis), a charismatic vampire who has total control over the human and supernatural inhabitants of New Orleans. Determined to help his brother find redemption, Elijah follows Klaus and soon learns that Hayley (guest star Phoebe Tonkin) has also come to the French Quarter searching for clues to her family history, and has fallen into the hands of a powerful witch named Sophie (guest star Daniella Pineda).
Meanwhile, in Mystic Falls, Damon and Stefan continue with their plan for Elena, while Katherine reveals a surprising vulnerability to Rebekah and asks her to deliver a message. Chris Grismer directed the episode written by Julie Plec.
