After last week’s episode of The Originals, there are reasons to celebrate, but there are probably more reasons to be nervous. Even though Mikael is still alive, he wasn’t able to kill Klaus! Marcel, Hayley, and even Kaleb/Kol and Davina were able to rally to stop Mikael from executing his plans. It’s likely that Mikael will strike again, but at least, for now, we can breathe a little bit.
Esther/Lenore, on the other hand, still has Elijah and is pretty much torturing him until he mentally and physically breaks. I keep hoping that Hayley will become suspicious and go looking for Elijah. And can we just briefly talk about that Haylijah moment…”I crave you…” so sexy, but alas, it was a dream.
In tonight’s episode, “Wheel Inside the Wheel”:
Klaus demands that Esther release Elijah, but she reveals a few dark secrets from Klaus’ past in an effort to make him an offer he can’t refuse. Meanwhile, Hayley reconnects with Jackson; Cami becomes suspicious of her faculty adviser; and a visitor from Klaus’ past arrives. (via TV Guide)
Like in previous weeks, Julie Plec and Michael Narducci take us behind the scenes to discuss how, tonight, we’ll be learning the story or young Esther and Mikael before they became the creators of the Original Family and vampires:
This is going to be really interesting. I wonder how we’ll be expanding on the show’s mythology.
In these two previews, we see that Esther/Lenore is still trying to break Elijah “for his own good”, while, elsewhere, Cami is being pressured by Vincent/Finn to betray Klaus:
