The Originals season 2 premiere of “Rebirth” is only weeks away. The season 1 finale was all about the birth of Hope. Season 2 will be about the rebirth of Hayley and the Mikaelsons!

Everybody seems to be dealing with their own unique crisis as the season begins. According to executive producer Julie Plec, “Rebirth” is not only the title of the premiere episode, it is also the season 2 theme and the theme of Klaus‘ new life as a father.

According to executive producer Michael Narducci, Klaus is planning to make everybody pay for having to send Hope away, starting with the Guerraras who have taken over control of the city. And who better to help him in his quest for revenge is somebody who knows the city, it’s layout, and it’s politics. Somebody who got rid of the werewolves the first time. In other words, his former protégé Marcel! In the meantime, “Klaus has decided that he will only imagine a day when he’ll be reunited with [Hope] while he destroys everyone keeping that child away from him.”

Although Klaus has been secretive about the horror of his childhood, he’ll find out some secrets relating to his mother that will change everything, including everything he thought about his past.

Speaking of Esther, exec producer Julie Plec hints that this crafty mother of the Originals may have been able to bring other people over with her from the Other Side before it disintegrated. Could she be referring to Kol, played by Nathaniel Buzolic? Or maybe Victor is Kol, although Julie has hinted that fans were correct in thinking he’s Finn.

Season 2 will also bring some revelations into the relationship between Elijah and Marcel. Flashbacks will reveal that Marcel was extremely close with big brother Elijah, although not as close as he was with Klaus. We’ll find out what happened that caused the break between them. According to a teaser, “your jaws will definitely hit the floor!”

Michael Narducci has hinted that we might have some flashbacks to when the Originals lived in Mystic Falls long ago, when they first arrived in America and were looking for a place to settle.

Klaus won’t be the only one lashing out in season 2. Hayley, now a hybrid, will be joining him in his revenge. She lost her connection to the new werewolf pack and ancestors she had looked for, lost her baby, lost her werewolf identity, and is consumed by her new vampire hunger. Her new life situation will force her and Elijah to “have some interesting conversations about what this means for their future,” according to Michael Narducci. The decision he makes to try and help Hayley adapt will be “a bit surprising”! Does this mean he’ll let her use him for midnight snacks?

After Klaus told Cami they couldn’t be friends right now, she’s kept her distance, but it seems like she was choosing Klaus over Marcel for any future involvement. However, when the new season begins, it looks like she’ll be seeing somebody else. According to Michael Narducci, “They certainly start off in a place where Cami is seeing someone else. Yet, she feels a responsibility [to help Klaus] because she knows she has a connection to this guy – when she speaks, he listens.”

A new character for season 2 is Ingrid, who will “stop at nothing to be with-child,” which includes lying to her husband. Will she be coming to NOLA to seek the help of the witches? Or has she heard about Klaus’ ability to procreate and she wants a “special” baby? It should be interesting to see how Ingrid fits in with everything and everybody.

Are you excited for the new season of The Originals, fangsters? Meanwhile enjoy the rest of the summer rerun season!
