Come Monday night, “The Originals” will be back to continue telling the story of the first family of vampires, and as you may know already, this family is going to be expanding with the return of so many from the dead.
While you’ve probably heard quite a bit now about the return of Mikael (Sebastian Roche) and him being a puppet of Davina, Esther has been somewhat left out. So what lies ahead for Klaus’ mother? It appears that the upcoming October 20 episode of the show “Every Mother’s Son” is going to be a real showcase for this. You can get some basic details in terms of what to expect right now via the official synopsis:
“When Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Elijah (Daniel Gillies) receive a cryptic invitation to dinner from their mother Esther, who continues to inhabit the body of Harvest girl Cassie (guest star Natalie Dreyfuss), they find themselves preparing for the worst. With the help of a new witch named Lenore (guest star Sonja Sohn), Klaus, Elijah and Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) attempt to stay one step ahead of Esther, but things quickly take an unexpected turn. While Elijah finds himself reluctantly teaming up with Gia (guest star Nishi Munshi), a newly-turned vampire, Hayley is faced with an enticing proposition about her new status as a Hybrid after a startling encounter with Esther. Finally, Esther reveals a shocking secret about Klaus’ childhood and unveils her ultimate plan for her children.”
The good news about what we are hearing right now is that the show is not seemingly making us wait very long to find out more about Esther’s endgame, which we attribute to be very much a good thing. The more we figure out about what she’s up to early, the more we are going to be happy about the results in the end.
