Things are not looking very good for our favorite Mikaelson brothers! By the end of last week’s The Originals episode, Elijah has been captured by Lenore/Esther who is determined to “purify” him. And then Klaus thinks Mikael is in the car trunk and sufficiently knocked out, but NO! Mikael is awake and has removed the stake buried in his chest. Goodness, these guys just can’t catch a break, and in tonight’s episode, “Red Door,” it doesn’t get any better:
Esther forces Elijah to relive a time long ago when he loved a young woman named Tatia (Nina Dobrev). Meanwhile, Mikael takes Cami hostage in an effort to lure Klaus to himself; and Davina makes a troubling discovery about Kaleb’s true identity. (via TV Guide)
WOW! Well, I’m very glad that we’ll be getting Nina Dobrev’s cameo as Tatia, the original doppelgänger. But, with that said, Mama and Papa Mikaelson are really going to heighten the obstacles that Klaus and Elijah have to overcome.
Producers Julie Plec and Michael Narducci take us behind the scenes of “Red Door” to tell us more about Mikael abducting Cami and Elijah being held captive by Lenore/Esther:
I’m *really* liking these weekly BTS insights from Julie and Michael!
And in the first of two clips from tonight’s show, we see Klaus and Kaleb/Kol go at it, with Cami in the middle trying to appeal to Klaus’ humanity. And in the second video, Hayley and Marcel start to get suspicious about Elijah’s absence:
