Vincent/Finn and Freya are getting a new ally in the battle against their siblings! Preview tonight’s The Originals, “The All Asked for You,” airing at 8:00pm ET|PT on The CW.
The Originals returns tonight after a brief hiatus, and judging from the sneak peeks we have for you below, our favorite vampires need to start bracing themselves for some serious family conflict.
After Elijah (Daniel Gillies) killed Vincent/Finn (Yusuf Gatewood) in the house explosion, he, Cami (Leah Pipes), and baby Hope decided it was time to go home. They arrived just in time for Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) and Jackson’s (Nathan Parsons) wedding day. The vampire/werewolf crew were preparing for the festivities—the sooner the wedding took place, the wolves could break their tie to the witches and consolidate their power. Rebekah (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) kindly provided Hayley with a wedding dress (obviously she couldn’t get married in jeans and combat boots) and reminded Hayley that she would always be a Mikaelson…
With Elijah back in NOLA, you could cut the tension with a knife. He understood that Hayley had to take any steps to protect Hope and help the wolves, but Elijah loved her. Could he put his feelings aside? Well, Elijah went to Hayley (who was in her wedding dress) to declare his love, but she quickly shut him down. She needed someone who would always be open with themselves, someone who could make her happy, and Hayley believed Jackson was that man. So, a now teary Elijah nodded his head in understanding and walked away *TEARS*TEARS*TEARS*
Before the ceremony, Jackson gave Hayley a beautiful necklace with her birthstone (of sorts), and together, they proceeded to their wedding. Jackson’s grandmother officiated, the vows were exchanged, and the deed was done! Immediately the wolf pack felt the changes, as they could now control their transformation. Also immediately, Klaus made it clear that he had every intention of killing Jackson, who was not fit to lead a werewolf army. But was Klaus jealous of Jackson? Jackson was a son to Ansel and now would be a father to Hope…Elijah had to wonder. In any event, Elijah vowed that he would not allow Klaus to hurt Jackson, if only for the sake of Hayley and Hope’s happiness.
During the wedding reception, Hayley and Jackson danced together, Aiden (Colin Woodell) and Josh (Steven Krueger) made their relationship public, and Klaus revealed to everyone that baby Hope was alive. He called upon them to help protect her and also invited Jackson to move into the Mikaelson compound where they would live as one happy family. With this in mind, Elijah told Hayley that he would be moving to join Marcel’s new vampire community.
Elsewhere, Freya (Riley Voelkel) gathered Vincent/Finn’s remains and using some powerful magic, was able to resuscitate him. The pendant she gave him was able to preserve his life, despite Elijah’s attempts to murder him. However, it seemed that Freya bringing Vincent/Finn back was toed to Kaleb/Kol’s (Daniel Sharman) mortality. The moment Vincent/Finn gasped for air, Kaleb/Kol’s nose started bleeding…he needed a lot of help, and turned to Rebekah. Unfortunately, Kaleb/Kol was dying and there was no time to stop it or help him jump into another body. Klaus, Elijah, Rebekah, and Davina (Danielle Campbell) all said their goodbyes, but promised to do whatever it took to bring Kol back.
UNLIKELY ALLIANCES—When a dangerous run-in with a coven of vengeful witches forces Rebekah to align with Marcel, they quickly discover that the body Rebekah is currently inhabiting has a checkered past. Upon learning that Rebekah is in danger, Elijah seeks out a respected elder witch, Josephine, in the hopes she might offer her assistance. Meanwhile, tensions build when Klaus clashes with Hayley and Jackson over how best to protect baby Hope from Finn. Elsewhere, Freya, convinces Finn to bring her to Mikael, the father she hasn’t seen in over a thousand years. Lastly, a confrontation with Freya leaves Elijah and Klaus questioning whether they can trust their long-lost sister. (via The CW)
Executive Producers Julie Plec and Michael Narducci tell us more about what we can expect in tonight’s show (the first video). Apparently Rebekah’s new body belonged to someone who’s in a lot of trouble. So with Marcel’s (Charles Michael Davis) help an investigation begins to find out more about who she was/is. Elijah, in search of new allies against the impending war with Vincent/Finn and Freya, reaches out to a very powerful witch. Plus, we will witness a reunion between Freya and her father:
WOW! This is going to be so good on so many levels! Take a look at this clip from “They All Asked for You,” which features Hayley and Jackson settling into married life:
Marvin Gaye, candles, and instant sexy times—or not! How awkward! I like Jackson, I really do, but…the only person I want Hayley having sexy times with is Elijah. Thoughts?
