"The Originals" season 2 synopsis has been released and it looks like the second season is going to be just as good, if not better than the first. On Tuesday, International Business Time posted the details and fans have a lot of exciting things to look forward to. So what can viewers expect when "The Vampire Diaries" spinoff returns to the CW network?
On the season finale, Klaus and Hayley had to pretend their daughter, baby Hope, was dead. They ended up giving her to Rebekah for safekeeping. Not only did Mikael show up in the first season, but the season finale revealed that Esther had also returned. Of course, who can forget what happened between the vampires and the werewolves.
"The Originals" season 2 synopsis summarizes what to expect by stating that the heroes will adjust to a "new status quo." They will have to do this despite the werewolves controlling the city. Also expect a lot of unknown threats lurking about.
Baby Hope is with Rebekah and although she is safe, her parents want her home with them. When the second season airs, fans will see Hayley dealing with postpartum depression as well as trying to cope with not being able to be with her baby girl. Hayley and Klaus are determined to make the city safer so they can have their daughter back. But will they succeed? It has already been revealed that actress Claire Holt, who plays Rebekah on "The Originals" will be appearing at least once in the first three episodes of the new season. However, more recently it was announced that Holt will appear in five episodes of the new season. IBT revealed that she is also supposed to return on the season finale although other reports just say "likely the end" of season 2.
However, making the city safer for their daughter won't be easy. Klaus and Hayley will be dealing with their own demons. Hayley is now a hybrid, which is a huge adjustment for her. She will be feeling rage as well as depression in the new season. The synopsis teases that Klaus will be weakened due to the werewolves using the moonlight rings forged in his blood.
As for Elijah, he will find himself in a tough spot when he tries to destroy Francesca and her werewolves without his family. If this isn't enough, both Elijah and Klaus will be in for a not-so-pleasant surprise. Mikael (Sebastian Roche) and Esther have returned and they are determined to get vengeance. However, Mikael and Esther won't know about each other's existence right away.
Although it is true that Mikael is being controlled by Davina's magic, he is determined to kill Klaus, even if he has to go through the witch to do it. "The Originals" season 2 spoilers stated recently that Davina is growing tired of him. As for Esther, the summary reads,
"Elsewhere, their mother, Esther (guest star Alice Evans), inhabiting the body of a teenager witch, is fueled by a consuming and twisted love for her children as she devises a disturbing plan to reunite her fractured family – a plan that involves untold torment not only for the Original siblings, but for any and all of their loved ones."
