Matt: I’ll take anything you’ve got on The Originals!
While season one has yet to wrap, we’ve managed to get our hands on some season two scoop: a new character coming to stir up trouble in the French Quarter! Fans will meet Kaleb, a paranormal psychologist, who (surprise, surprise!) is not a fan of the Mikaelson family.
Stelena. The Vampire Diaries. Anything? — Kate
Stefan-Elena fans will love this week’s episode, which features a ton of what-if scenes between the duo. The downside is that the scenes are all dreams related to the doppelganger prophecy, which will finally be fully explained! Elsewhere, look for a familiar face to pop up —but the character’s return won’t bring good news.
The Originals‘ Nathan Parsons talks to Just Jared Jr about Jackson’s deal with Klaus and the future with Hayley;
JustJaredJr.com: Jackson has aligned himself with Klaus, at least for the time being, to serve both their interests. How far is Jackson willing to take this?
Nathan Parsons: Jackson will only do something if it’s right for his pact. He’s not afraid of dying, and to become a werewolf you have to kill someone, so they’ve all done that. There’s a line and a boundary, and that moves a little further in their situation because of everything they’ve been through and Marcel has done to them over the years. The line has been really pulled back there, so what Jackson is going to do is really whatever it takes. At this point, they’re out in the Bayou. It’s not healthy, it’s not safe, there are kids out there being raised in shacks and in tents in the swamp. These are kids are nephews of Jackson. This is his family and his life, so to have the opportunity to move all of that to New Orleans where he feels they belong, who knows how far he’s willing to go. I think he’ll do pretty much anything.
JJJ: Does he really trust that Klaus will hold up his side of the bargain? Jackson knows he has his own agenda, for sure.
NP: I think Klaus is only always going to have his own motive. You can never trust him. You can never trust a vampire in general. On the one hand, the pack could protect his child. But is this just another ploy for Klaus to get more power? Does he want to create a werewolf army now? I don’t think Jackson would be willing to let his people get turned into machines. But he is offering something pretty powerful and maybe we’ll play along for a little bit, but if he wants to use us that way, to become some half-crazed army, then no. I think that’s going to be a big pot of contention if that is the case.
