‘The Originals’ season 2 spoilers: The story for Joseph Morgan, cast in ‘Rebirth’

Originals -Can you believe how close we are now to the season 2 premiere for “The Originals“? We are only a matter of just over two weeks away! The first episode back is entitled “Rebirth,” and The CW just unleashed their official synopsis today. Suffice it to say, there is quite a bit to look forward to in between Klaus leaving his temporary sanctuary, Hayley going completely insane after losing Baby Hope (at least in terms of a separation), and much more.

We don’t want to bury a lead here, so let’s go ahead and share that synopsis. It’s much more informative than anything else we could share right now:

“After months of being holed up inside his compound, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) enlists the help of Elijah (Daniel Gillies) and Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) in plotting his revenge against the Guerrera werewolves, and vows to take down anyone who poses a threat to baby Hope’s existence. Elijah watches helplessly as Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) spirals downward while mourning the loss of her daughter and struggling to adapt to her new hybrid status. Exiled by the Guerrera werewolves, who now control the French Quarter, Marcel is still reeling over the destruction of his vampire family, and attempts to rebuild his home with the help of Josh (guest star Steven Krueger). Elsewhere, Cami (Leah Pipes), who is attempting to regain some normalcy in her life, seeks comfort in a surprising place. Last, Davina (Danielle Campbell) continues her plan to use Mikael (guest star Sebastian Roche) against Klaus, but gets sidetracked when she meets the mysterious, yet charming Kaleb (guest star Daniel Sharman), who holds a few secrets of his own.”

By far, we expect there to be a great deal of anticipation for this episode, and hopefully it will live up to all of that. The one thing we can say is that this is going to be a lengthy battle for Klaus to escape his current fate. Not only is Mikael back, but it’s so much more given Esther’s role in all of this … and the potential that another dead member of his family could come back for another attempt at revenge.
