by at . Comments

Ready to take a trip to New Orleans?

On April 25, The Vampire Diaries will air "The Originals," an episode meant to serve as a backdoor pilot for, well... The Originals.

How will Julie Plec and company get the ball rolling for this potential spinoff? What will take Klaus to The Big Easy and why might he permanently make residence there?

Klaus, Relaxing

The CW has released the official synopsis for this exciting episode, which will also include Daniel Gillies as Elijah and Phoebe Tonkin as Hayley.

Read through it now and then sound off in our Vampire Diaries forum: Are you excited for The Originals?

Acting on a mysterious tip that a plot is brewing against him in New Orleans, Klaus makes a trip to the town he and his family helped build. Klaus’ questions lead him to a reunion with his former protégé, Marcel, a charismatic vampire who has total control over the human and supernatural inhabitants of New Orleans.

Determined to help his brother find redemption, Elijah follows Klaus and soon learns that Hayley has also come to the French Quarter searching for clues to her family history, and has fallen into the hands of a powerful witch named Sophie.

Meanwhile, in Mystic Falls, Damon and Stefan continue with their plan for Elena, while Katherine reveals a surprising vulnerability to Rebekah and asks her to deliver a message.

This must be the spinoff of the originals but I'm still wondering when the show will get better again. ;P

I can't wait!!! Hope to see The Originals as a series in the fall !!!!:):):):)


Yay! If that show doesn't get picked up... I'll quit television! Klaus is... No words! Love him..and his family!


hmmmm! this is not really a good hook for the spin off! I'm looking more forward to the Becca-Katarina interaction! They should really set up a good face off! So they can pick it up! It will be interesting to see what would happen if the Originals won't get picked up and Julie wrote them off! But I see the show getting picked up cause of the strong cast!
