Has Klaus made his father proud in The Originals 2×07 episode “Chasing the Devil’s Tail”?

In The Originals promo video for the 2×07 “Chasing the Devil’s Tail” episode Klaus asks his father at the end if he’s proud of him. As the promo says, “With family like this, who needs enemies?”

Kol has been plotting Klaus‘ demise since the first time he was daggered. In the web series “The Awakening” we’re learning that he aligned himself with witches back in the 1800s with the help of Davina’s ancestor Mary-Alice Claire, played by Keri Lynn Pratt. With Davina’s help he plans to complete his agenda by finally sticking it to brother Klaus.

Esther is still after the White Oak Stake and tells Finn to get it no matter what it takes. While Esther and Finn scheme to get the Stake, Cami is scheming with Hayley, Marcel, and Josh to take Vincent (Finn) down with the help of werewolf Aiden. In the video Hayley kicks Vincent in the chest. Take that Finn! POW!

And where will Elijah figure into all of this, if he wakes up in this episode? According to executive producer Michael Narducci, he’ll have “no choice but to admit that what he is as a vampire is evil, awful and wrong and the source of his misery and not something he can continue to endure.” At least that’s what Esther wants him to believe. So he’ll have to decide what would happen to his family if he takes her offer.

He may also find that choice complicated by the notion of, “If I were to take Esther’s option, what would that do to my family? Would I betray them? Would I be leaving them vulnerable? If so, how can I think about myself when I need to do what’s right for my family?” What she has done to Elijah is definitely going to have a big impact on him for the rest of the season.

Now that Oliver is dead, Jackson is faced with the decision of whether he still wants to be the Alpha. If he decides he wants to, he’ll have a long journey back. There’s lots of history between the werewolves and the vampires and Hayley finds herself in a position to be a “positive bridge between those communities.” Since Klaus is the original hybrid, he may also want to act as this bridge, although he may have more selfish motives than Hayley has.

With everybody plotting Esther’s demise, is there any chance that the Original Esther can come back into her original body? According to Julie Plec, it’s possible, but not yet.

Alice Evans hasn’t returned as Esther for any present-day stories yet (though that doesn’t mean it’ll never happen). But we will see another actress, Hayley McCarthy, playing Young Esther in flashbacks to the Mikaelsons’ life before Klaus and Elijah were born.

As season 2 progresses, it will be interesting to see what new alliances form in order to defeat the larger threat, be it Esther and Finn or something else out there on the French Quarter horizon!
