Elijah and Finn travel to Mystic Falls to find kidnapped Freya in The Originals 3×17 “Behind the Black Horizon”!
In The Originals 3×17 “Behind the Black Horizon” Elijah and Finn go to Mystic Falls to find Freya who has been kidnapped in this episode directed by Joseph Morgan!
When Elijah and Finn go to Mystic Falls they find Matt Donovan, played by Zach Roerig. According to executive producer Michael Narducci, “[I] know the fans — they love the shared universe and they love to see that these characters still interact in the same big wide world and if Matt is interacting with Elijah — that’s a reminder that these characters still function in the same place. For me, as a creator, what’s really exciting is that Matt was the one who killed Finn in Season 3 with a white oak stake and so now it’s Finn, who has recently been brought back through magic to rejoin his family, [who] is coming face-to-face with the guy who killed him. And I think that that’s interesting and it’s also interesting as a reminder that even though he’s just a human being, Matt Donovan’s a tough guy who, when push comes to shove, given the right weapons, can even take down an Original, so I thought that was pretty cool.”
Michael Narducci goes on the say that Freya discovers she’s in a position where she’s at the same site Mama Esther used to originally create their vampire family.
As for Joseph Morgan’s directing, he says, “That was also part of the fun, was to give Joseph an opportunity to work with actors he was very familiar with and a location he would remember fondly and probably has his own ideas about how to shoot. And I have to say, I really cannot say enough about how amazing Joseph did with this opportunity. He is an incredible director and everyone I talked to, from our actors to our crew, was truly impressed by how prepared he was and his strong point of view and his visual stylings and he just had a really impressive take on our world and it’s a great episode.”
According to Michael Narducci, the Mikaelson family isn’t the only part in jeopardy. According to Michael, “Everything the Mikaelsons are responsible for is coming home to roost. Not just Tristen, Aurora and Lucien – the first vampires they ever turned – but we’re also seeing what’s happening to the city that they’ve been exploiting over the past three seasons. How is the city going to react when the Mikaelsons become vulnerable? When you’ve dominated someone, then suddenly you have a vulnerability, the people are going to rise up.”
Season Finale will be 5/20/2016.
