When we left New Orleans, things were not looking good for the Original family. Not only was Hope gone, but Mikael back was, along with Esther and a mystery son. Plus, Francesca seemed to think she was “running things.” But if season 1 taught us anything, it’s that Klaus isn’t one to lose a fight and not kill somebody because of it.
In the first photos from the season 2 premiere, we get a glimpse at Ester and Finn(?) roaming the town, as well as a look at new hybrid Hayley, who’s hopefully getting a little guidance from the Original Hybrid. As for Elijah, he appears to be ridding a werewolf of his moonlight ring, but only after ridding him of his pulse. And as the season 2 trailer showed us, Marcel is keeping busy by building a new vampire army, which apparently means fighting in the rain.
The Originals returns Monday, Oct. 6 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
