The Originals Season Premiere Pics: Back to The Big Easy

at .

Ready to head back to New Orleans, CW viewers?

What about back in time?

The network has given us our very first look at the upcoming series premiere of The Originals, an episode that was an unusual challenge for Julie Plec and company to write, considering they already introduced viewers to Marcel and company in April's backdoor pilot, via an episode of The Vampire Diaries.

But this October 3rd opener will tell the same story from Elijah's perspective, as he deals with pesky brother Klaus... comforts a pregnant Hayley... and also flashes back to much earlier days with his brother and his father.

Click through photos from "Always and Forever" now and then check out our exclusive interview with Claire Holt, who gives us an idea of what we can expect this fall from Rebekah:

The Originals Season 1 Episode 1 Quotes

Over the course of my long life, I have come to believe that we are bound forever to those with whom we share blood. And while we may not choose our family, that bond can be our greatest strength, or our deepest regret. This unfortunate truth has haunted me for as long as I can recall.


I may be old, Elijah, but I'm hardly senile.
