OMG! What a great start of season 4 of the Originals a week after the end of the Vampire diaries. Almost a year since the last season the Mikealsons’s are back. Let me give you quick summaries of the previous seasons for those who have never seen this show (shame on you!;) or for those who’ve forgotten.
The Vampire diaries
Klaus Mikealson first appeared in the Vampire diaries season 2 “Rose” and is the first original vampire to appear in the show created by Julie Plec. Klaus Mikealson is a Hybrid vampire/werewolf. He was born as a werewolf (but didn’t know) and created to be a vampire by his mother Esther. He created the sun and the moon curse to find the moonstone and the Petrova döppelganger (Elena Gilbert) to get rid of his werewolf side. I won’t tell you how that went, you’ll just have to watch;)
Later in season 3 and 4 of the Vampire diaries you’ll get introduced to the rest of the Mikealsons including Rebecca, Elija, Kol, Finn and their parents Mikeal Mikealson and Esther. The backdoor pilot was aired April 25th 2013 and the first episode of the Originals’ own show, also created by Julie Plec, aired in October that same year.
Okay let’s start with short summaries of the previous seasons. (Don’t read if you don’t want to know just yet!)
Originals season 1
In the backdoor pilot on the Vampire diaries we learnt that the werewolf Hayley is pregnant with Klaus’ child. Klaus and his family move back to New Orleans where they left in 1919. They originally have built the city but they’ve been forced to leave the city and their vengeful father Mikael. In the time the original vampires had left the city Klaus’ adopted son Marcel took over the city. Now they have to fight to get their city back and stop the war between vampires, werewolves and witches.
Originals season 2
Season 2 of the Originals aired February 2014 and baby Hope has been born. Hayley is now a hybrid and Klaus has to face new threats and together they have to make New Orleans a save home for the new Mikealson
Originals season 3
In season three of this amazing show they reunited with their lost sister Freya who Esther gave away to her sister Dalia in order to protect the rest of her children. New vampires and witches come to town including Klaus’ first love. In this season the Mikealson’s have to face a prophesy that speaks of their fall.

And there we are (finally) season 4. The season begins with the 5th year anniversary of the fall of the Mikealsons. Marcel created peace in the French Quarter but has to face the vampires who are seeking their revenge on Klaus. Meanwhile Haley has raised Hope by herself and is looking for the final ingredient that Freya needs to wake her siblings.
I loved the start of this season, I think it’s the strongest one so far. Marcel finally has what he always wanted, New Orleans AND Klaus captured to torture for everything he had down to him, Marcel especially being angry on what his family had done to Davina who he saw as his daughter.
Hope is now a 5? Year old toddler and it seems like she’s aware of her family missing but was to you to actually miss them. I’m really curious as were her story will go. Will she eventually rule New Orleans? Will she be caring like her mother or as vengeful as her father? Or maybe a little bit of both?
Either way I can’t wait for the next episodes and see where this season will take us.
Lots of love Roxana
Ps: What did you think of this new season and its first episode?
