Tv Season Info

Season 2 of the supernatural drama begins with Klaus (Joseph Morgan) plotting his revenge against the Guerrera werewolves and vowing to take down anyone who poses a threat to baby Hope's existence. Meanwhile, Elijah (Daniel Gillies) watches helplessly as Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) spirals downward while mourning the loss of her daughter and struggles to adapt to her new hybrid status. Exiled by the Guerrera werewolves, who now control the French Quarter, Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) reels over the destruction of his vampire family and attempts to rebuild his home with the help of Josh (Steven Krueger). Elsewhere, Vincent (Yusuf Gatewood) recruits unsuspecting teens into a werewolf army; and Klaus and Elijah turn to a new witch (Sonja Sohn) to help them outsmart their villainous mother (Alice Evans).

All in all, this was a great season premiere and well worth the long hiatus. It tidied up the last big threat from season one and stressed the importance of family and blood and fighting for what matters most.

The fact that this show is about a family definitely raises the stakes and makes the drama much more interesting.

As a season premiere, the episode was next-level; as an hour of television, it was perfect.

All in all, I'd have to give the premiere a thumbs up; even if the take-down of the Guerreras was perhaps a bit too neat for its own good- they probably could have milked that for a few more episodes, at least.

I found the first 10 minutes or so of tonight's episode difficult to follow as the writers tried to inform us as to the whereabouts of every single character we've come to know and love. It was too much and not enough all at the same time.

The Originals returns for its sophomore season and everything in New Orleans is about to be turned upside down.

Audience Reviews for The Originals: Season 2

In its second season The Originals delves deeper into the Mikaelson family and resurrects old feuds. After reclaiming control over New Orleans, Klaus discovers that his dead mother and brothers have crossed over from the Veil and are inhabiting the bodies of witches, and that it was his mother who put a death sentence on his child. At times the plot can get a bit confusing with all the body swapping, but it also allows for some interesting story arcs and adds an extra degree of mystery. Plus, it enables the show to bring in fresh new actors to play the Mikaelson characters; in particular Maisie Richardson-Sellers as Rebekah does an incredible job. Season 2 of The Originals has an ambitious vision that, while not completely pulled off, makes it extraordinarily exciting and compelling.
