The CW reveals The Originals Season 3 trailer, and we see that more conflict is on the horizon, both between the Mikaelson siblings and when the Mikaelson sires come to town.
Truth be told, The Originals is one of the best shows on television. The writing is incredible—intense drama, sexy romance, mystery, and so many OMG moments. But I think what sucks me in and keeps me tuning in every week (and suffering jittery withdrawals during the summer break) are the phenomenal characters. The Mikaelson Family, as well as their inner circle and bitter enemies, are fabulously compelling.
Klaus is the hottest mess ever! I despise that hybrid so much…but then again, there’s something about how, even in his most ruthless moments, he still has vulnerability. I don’t want to love Klaus, but I just can’t write him off either. I expect this is how the other Mikaelson siblings feel, especially Elijah. I adore Elijah and the protective loyalty he has for his family. Watching him sacrifice his own personal happiness over and over again (mostly for Klaus’ sake) just breaks my heart. It’s no secret that I’m 100% HERE for HAYLIJAH, even though that ship may/may not be sailing any time soon…
…I could go on and on about my Mikaelson feels, but there’s more exciting things to talk about! The CW has finally shared the trailer for The Originals’ third season and we can already tell that the bad blood will be flowing.
The last time we were in the French Quarter, Klaus had wreaked havoc on his family, all in the quest of keeping Baby Hope safe. With Esther’s help, the Mikaelson siblings were finally able to kill Auntie Dahlia. However, Hayley and her pack were once again under the Crescent Curse, and now unable to be remain with Hope.
In the trailer, we see that Klaus’ siblings are still upset with him, and unsurprisingly, he’s lashing out with more rage. We also learn more about the Mikaelson sires—the first vampires that Klaus, Elijah, and Rebekah ever made—and their plans to kill the Originals:
“We will all fall…” YIKES, this sire line war is already shaping up to be dangerous.
In the photo stills from the Season 3 premiere episode “For the Next Millenium”, we meet Lucien (Andrew Lees), the first vampire in Klaus’ sire line. Check them out below:
Interestingly, at Comic-Con this summer, Julie Plec teased that Season 3 begins with a violent custody battle for Hope, which makes the still of Hayley, Elijah, and Baby Hope sweet, but ominous.
The Originals premieres Thursday, October 8 at 9pm ET|PT on The CW (NEW DAY and TIME!) and we’re looking forward to bringing you sneak peek posts and live tweeting. In the mean time, make sure to tell us what you’re most looking forward to in Season 3!
