Before we say anything else in this new story regarding “The Originals,” let’s start things off by giving a little round of applause to the writers for this oh-so clever title (see above), which reminds us of the old lyrics of “in 1814 I took a little trip.” It has been 200 years since that Battle of New Orleans, and this is a clever little way to bring it back around.
Of course, the difference between that battle and this one are that A) there will be no Andrew Jackson playing a part in this one, and that B) things will still be crazy. Marcel and the Mikaelson brothers are at war, the witches have a key role that is still to be revealed, and of course there are also questions about Hayley and Cami thrown in here for good measure. This may be the show’s version of “Blackwater” from “Game of Thrones,” at least if we’re lucky.
Take a look at the full synopsis (just released by The CW) below if you want to find out more:
“Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Elijah (Daniel Gillies) enact a plan to collect the sacred stones needed by Genevieve (guest star Elyse Levesque) in order to forever change the fates of Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) and the werewolf community. Realizing that Klaus’ plan will lead to the extermination of all French Quarter vampires, Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) rallies an army determined to take down the Mikaelsons and regain control of the city. Davina (Danielle Campbell) warns Josh (guest star Steven Krueger) to leave town as she is forced to make a fateful decision that will Turn the tide of war. Meanwhile, Francesca (guest star Peta Sargent) threatens Cami (Leah Pipes), who attempts to decipher a code that results in a surprising revelation among the city’s factions.”
