Is The Originals new tonight on The CW? Before we say anything else within this article, let’s go ahead and get that out of the way.
While it would be rather nice to continue to have new installments airing on The CW tonight, especially since there isn’t exactly a whole lot else airing, we come bearing some rather-unfortunate news: The show is off the air for a week. It will return on April 28 to continue its arc of spring episodes. For the sake of this article, though, we’re going to be looking a bit further ahead to the upcoming May 5 episode, which carries with it the title of “High Water and a Devil’s Daughter.” That’s also important here is that this marks the directorial debut for one Charles Michael Davis, who plays Marcel on the show. His co-star Joseph Morgan already directed an episode this season; now, he’s getting a chance to do the same.
As for what’s coming in his episode story-wise, the synopsis below indicates that The Hollow is going to be continuing to plague some characters in various ways:
“When it’s discovered that The Hollow’s latest servant is on the loose, Freya (Riley Voelkel) places a protection spell on the compound, forcing Klaus (Joseph), Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) and Hope (guest star Summer Fontana) to remain inside. Meanwhile, Elijah (Daniel Gillies) takes matters into his own hands when Vincent (Yusuf Gatewood) is reluctant to perform a dangerous ritual needed to strengthen their defense against The Hollow. Finally, while Freya enacts a risky plan that brings her face to face with their latest threat, an unexpected twist leaves her life hanging in the balance.”
One of the things that we’re the most interested in seeing in this episode beyond of course seeing Davis’ skill behind the camera is learning a little bit of what happens when Freya puts it all out there. We’ve learned a lot about her since her debut on the show, but this could be her putting herself out there in a pretty dangerous way that we haven’t seen before. Sound interesting? It is at least to us.
