A Friendly Reminder to Refresh Your Memory for Season Two
With each passing day, we’re closer to the season two premiere of The Originals. So much supernatural magic, mystery, mayhem and more happened last season in the French Quarter. In the season finale, we finally met Klaus and Hayley’s miracle baby. Unfortunately, she had to be ripped from her mother’s womb, whose throat slit. Unable to help, Klaus watched the awful act and Elijah recovered from a werewolf bite. The Mikaelson brothers were determined to track down the ruthless bitches, oops witches and had help from two unlikely sources, Hayley, whose life was spared thanks to her baby’s blood and Marcel. They decided for her safety, Hope, must leave town and they let everyone believe she’d been sacrificed as the witches planned. However, unbeknownst to them, during the epic battle with the witches Davina resurrected Papa Original and Esther managed to weasel herself back to life again. Take a peek below to see where your favorite supernaturals stand and who’s joining the Originals Family when the series returns this Fall. Here’s your The Originals Recap for season 1!
