While we may not know whether or not Mikael is going to remain a part of “The Originals” at the end of season 2, we at least know that there are at least enough plans to keep Sebastian Roche around for a little while. After all, we’re going to see a little more from him than just him causing a little bit of trouble in the present; we’re also going to learn a little bit more about his past.
Speaking on this subject in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, show executive producer Michael Narducci was fairly clear in saying that there are some things when it comes to Mikael, with one of the most significant ones being how in the world the character made the decision to leave America for Europe in the first place:
“What’s their story? Where do they come from? In episode 16 last season, Klaus says, ‘Something made my father the way he was.’ We want to tell that story. Why does he go around hunting his children and calling himself the destroyer and hating what he is?”
While we are waiting for that story to happen, we will have to see Mikael deal with a variety of other problems, which include him being trapped by Davina in the early going while the plan is properly formulated. Eventually, we are going to see him go after Klaus, but he will not be entirely capable of controlling his actions right away.
