Violent custody battle, wicked enemies, and more sibling rivalries when The Originals returns for season 3!

When The Originals returns for season 3 it will be a new chapter, exploring the three sire lines of the Mikaelson siblings, Klaus, Elijah, and Rebekah!

Nathaniel Buzolic will return for flashbacks, as well as Claire Holt, as the first 100 years after they became immortal will be explored. They said we may even see Finn again, especially since Freya keeps him in a pendant! And it looks like the new enemies in town are some of the original vampires the siblings sired during this 100 year period.

During the panel, Phoebe thinks Hayley’s wish for Hope is that she lives a normal, happy existence. She and Leah Pipes also discussed the fun they’ve had with the twins that play baby Hope!

Daniel’s wish is that Elijah’s girlfriends stop dying on him, and before reconciling with brother Klaus that they have a really good fight.

Freya will help raise Hope, so she’ll be an important part of season 3. Joseph teased that Klaus isn’t going to handle being a single parent very well, so he’ll probably be thankful Freya is around! Especially since Julie Plec revealed that “There will be a violent custody fight early in season 3” between Klaus and Hayley for baby Hope.

They were all sad about Aiden’s and Kol/Kaleb’s death. Danielle Campbell said she loves how her character of Davina has evolved “from a scared girl into this leader who is so strong.”

Leah revealed that her character Cami has an “untapped darkness” Klaus sees and is attracted to, while Cami sees the goodness that’s in Klaus. Kind of like a moth being attracted to a flame!

When the subject of crossovers came up, Michael Narducci said he’s happy in his own sandbox with his own cast of characters, so as far as crossovers are concerned it’s up to God Julie!

The sizzle reel revealed wicked new enemies are coming for the Mikaelsons. The 5-minute sizzle reel recapped the family’s journey so far, but toward the end two seemingly sinister people had a revealing conversation about the events of the upcoming season. Julie revealed that the scene was in the finale, but they removed it so it wouldn’t reveal too much about season 3.

A man, possibly the calculating vampire Lucien, has his back to a woman, who may be Aurora, a sexy vampire “capable of turning on a dime and unleashing her dark side.” He says to her, “When you asked to meet, I assumed you’d come to surrender.”

She hands him a document containing what looks like some Mikaelson love interests, and tells him, “What if I told you the Originals are very far from untouchable? After a millennium, we finally know their weakness.”

When he asks what her proposal is, she replies, “I say we stop fighting each other and go after the ones who made us.”
