We’ve already treated you to delicious spoilers about our beloved Mystic Falls residents and their respective storylines in The Vampire Diaries Season 6. Now how about a round of juicy details pertaining to the supernatural hotties and baddies of New Orleans? That’s right, loves. We come bearing secrets about The Originals Season 2 — and you don’t even have to compel us into coughing them up!

The stars of TVD’s spinoff series gathered at San Diego Comic-Con 2014 to discuss what fans can expect in the show’s highly anticipated sophomore season, as well as to warn them about all the chaos about to erupt in NOLA. And along with unveiling a preview trailer packed with menacing moments, they teased upcoming showdowns, steamy hook-ups, and gripping revelations. Ultimately, one thing became clear: viewers are in for one hell of a wicked time.

That said, dive into the bullet list below for a quick update on all the dark Mikaelson family mischief that’s been brewing in the French Quarter and to learn more on where the new year will find beloved characters such as Marcel Gerard, Camille O’Connell, Davina Claire, and Joshua Rosza.

  1. The Little Witch That Could: Watch out New Orleans, because Davina is her own woman now. The tiny spellcaster is done doing everyone’s bidding and is “playing by her own rules now.” Danielle Campbell explained. “She’s not being tossed around. She’s dishing it out.” And putting fools in their place is not the only activity Davina will be indulging in…apparently there’s a bit of romance on the horizon for her! Although she won’t be quick to trust him — especially considering how everyone just wants to use her powers — Davina develops a crush on the show’s newest witch, played by Daniel Sharman. “Davina meets Caleb and she’s a bit smitten,” the actress revealed ever so coyly. (Oh yea! Get your flirt on, girl!)
  2. Good Girl Gone Bad: Hayley, who was initiated into the exclusive “hybrid” club in episode 1×22, is going to feel a strange connection to Klaus. But don’t worry! Phoebe Tonkin teases that it’s not of the romantic variety — it’s more of a mentorship. “She’s just kind of a mess right now; she’s very lost and she doesn’t really know what her intention is right now. And she doesn’t really know what she’s fighting for or if anything is worth fighting for at all. She’s on a bit of like a kamikaze mission — she’s really got nothing to lose.” Executive producer Julie Plec adds “What do you do? You’re a mother without a child. You’re were a Mikaelson who can’t really accept where you fit in that family. And you were a prideful werewolf who now is a hybrid, which is the one they probably despite more than vampires. So, she doesn’t have a place and watching her try to find her own sense of strength and her own place in this universe is going to be a beautiful journey. As for Haylijah’s relationship? “I want to see them continue. I want to see what emerges and blossoms from there,” Daniel Gillies confessed.
  3. No More Mister Minion: Although Marcel is no longer king of New Orleans, he at least gets to remain in NOLA and has not been expelled or killed off by the supposedly extinct Guerrera werewolf family. According to Charles Michael Davis, Marcel is on Klaus’s good side (for now), and although there’s some romance in the works for him (perhaps with the lovely Cami), he’s going to focus his attention on rebuilding the local vampire community.
  4. The 411 on Klaroline: There’s potential for a crossover between TVD and The Originals — but it might not involve Caroline driving down to New Orleans to visit Klaus during fall break! According to Julie Plec, “there is a great pitch on the table right,” but fans shouldn’t get their hopes up just yet. “In order for Caroline to enter the New Orleans universe and engage with Klaus at any level, it’s got to be an organic fit, and that could take some time,” she explained.
  5. A Dark Place: What’s in store for the big bad hybrid? Well, he’s in a bit of a rut to say the least. After being forced to fake his daughter’s death and being weakened by the moonlight rings, a devastated Klaus locks himself away in the compound to brood in peace. “He’s like a caged animal waiting to make his move to seek revenge. He’s failing to control his emotions,” Joseph Morgan previewed. (Let’s just hope his alone time involves painting!) Daniel Gillies also pitched in his two cents about how Klaus and Elijah will struggle with the concept of “family” as they try to maintain a hold over their kingdom. “In fabricating this illusion of “we’ve lost a child,” they’ve been holed up in this place for 2-3 months — and goodness knows what this must have been like with the malevolence of Klaus and the restraint of Elijah wanting to exact his revenge somewhere to exact his revenge and Hayley somewhere in the middle of that.”
  6. Sidekick Lovin’: Wondering what’s going down for everyone’s favorite rave-seeking, hug-giving chap, Josh? According to executive producer Michael Narducci, Mister Josh will be embarking on a new journey aka stumbling upon a new love interest. Aww!
  7. Mommy and Daddy Dearest: Mikael and Esther are back and they mean business! As they set out to destroy their little abominations (aka their own flesh and blood), Elijah and Klaus join forces to take down their maniacal parents and figure out which one to kill first. Michael Narducci was on hand to assure fans that the return of Papa and Mama Mikaelson is going to be intense and contribute significantly to Season 2′s “warped fairytale” tone. “We talked a lot about the sins of the past coming back to haunt us in the present,” he responded. “Our heroes are dealing with the return of their monstrous parents and what it means to them.”
  8. The Bartender’s Journey: Just like Matt Donovan, Camille is one of the few humans on The Originals, and Season 2 will explore her dealing with that fact. Cami yearns to find her place in this city overflowing with powerful entities, and just wants to fit in. “I’m excited to see her be more comfortable in her environment or just more aware of her environment,” Leah Pipes responded.
  9. Baby Hope: While we won’t see too much of Klaus’s and Hayley’s miracle love child, Season 2 will definitely dedicate some time to exploring her arc — specifically, why she’s important the the supernatural world and whether the witches will find out the precious infant is indeed alive.

  1. Morgan Said:

    The Vampire Diaries isn’t doing so hot, so I imagine Julie Plec will use the 2nd half of this season to introduce some characters into The Originals season 3.
