Daniel Gillies on The Originals, Elijah: He's Ready for War

by at . Comments

When we last saw Elijah on The Originals Season 1, he was getting treaty signatures from a witch, a vampire, a werewolf and a human.

So... all will be fine, dandy and peaceful in the French Quarter moving forward, right?

Wrong, Daniel Gillies told me at PaleyFest last weekend.

In an exclusive chat on the red carpet, the beloved actor said Elijah is not operating under any illusions: he doesn't expect the various factions in New Orleans to actually abide by their new agreement and that this Mikaelson brother is "ready for war."

He's also ready to butt heads again and again with Klaus. Check out the interview now and start the countdown for The Originals Season 1 Episode 18

It airs on April 15.

The Originals Quotes

They say the passage of time will heal all wounds, but the greater the loss, the deeper the cut and the more difficult the process to become whole again. The pain may fade, but scars serve as a reminder of our suffering and make the bearer all the more resolved never to be wounded again. So as time moves along we get lost in distractions, act out in frustration, react with aggression, give in to anger, and all the while we plot and plan as we wait to grow stronger, and before we know it, the time passes. We are healed. Ready to begin anew.

Klaus

We were innocent once, Elijah. This bloodlust was forced upon us by our parents, turning us from prey to predator. We are the demons lurking in shadow. We are the savage villains in fairy tales told to children. But not for my child. Not for Hope. In her story, we are the knights in shining armor. Without you by my side, I don't think I can survive my own love for my daughter. I need you. I need you, brother. The monster in me can only be checked by the monster in you. Only together can we defeat our demons and save our family.

Klaus
