‘The Originals’ episode 13 preview: ‘Crescent City’; a choice for Daniel Gillies’ Elijah

The Vampire Diaries, Daniel GilliesThere are going to be some pretty difficult times ahead when it comes to the character of Elijah on “The Originals.” Why is that? Basically, he is going to be forced to choose between a woman that he has started to develop some pretty deep feelings for, and also his brother. Given that this said brother is Klaus, you would actually think that this choice would be pretty easy.

However, you do have to remember here that this is still Elijah. Daniel Gillies’ character has been tied to such things as honor and commitment to his family for centuries, so why turn around on that now? Even though Klaus has betrayed him and Rebekah time and time again, he hasn’t gone to that same level just yet … until possibly next wee’s episode “Crescent City.”

Of course, there is also a ton of other storytelling to come in this episode. The synopsis below is a long one, but it is worth checking out just for the sake of rooting through it:

“At the re-opening of St. Anne’s Church, Father Kieran (guest star Todd Stashwick) finds himself in a great deal of trouble after a run-in with a witch from his past. Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) and Rebekah (Claire Holt) grow concerned when the reemergence of someone they once knew threatens to expose secrets they’ve kept buried for nearly a century. Elsewhere, Sophie (Daniella Pineda) is shocked when a discovery is made at the cemetery, but she soon realizes things may not be as they seem. With the full moon looming, Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) lets Rebekah in on her plan to throw a party for her werewolf clan, but things take a dangerous turn when uninvited guests arrive. Meanwhile, Cami (Leah Pipes) is conflicted when she makes a difficult decision involving the safety of Father Kieran, and Elijah (Daniel Gillies) finds himself facing his own dilemma when he has to choose between Hayley and his siblings. Finally, when one of his plans fails, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) takes drastic measures in the Cauldron, resulting in dangerous repercussions that affect everyone involved.”
