Although The Originals Season 4 won’t kick off until midseason on The CW, the cast and producers of the vampire drama were still able to tease a lot about what is planned for the upcoming season of the show at San Diego Comic-Con. One of the cast members that we were able to speak with was none other than Klaus Mikaelson himself, Joseph Morgan, who took some time during our interview to not only reflect on the journey that Klaus has gone on throughout the past three seasons but also preview what we can expect from him once Season 4 begins.

The Originals cast knows their finale ended on a heck of a note—so they understand why the wait until new episodes in 2017 is going to be so excruciating. "We don't know who is going to get killed with a baseball bat, we're all kneeling down in front of the camper," star Joseph Morgan revealed to E! News at Comic-Con. Hey, wait—isn't that The Walking Dead? Ok, fine, it's not actually their cliffhanger, Morgan confessed. (For the record, he doesn't know who dies on Twd and also thought that Jon Snow would be dead on Game of Thrones, so he might not be the best person to weigh in on plot twists.) While we were all talking about spoilers, we had the Originals »
The Headless Horseman is making tracks for New Orleans. Sort of.

Ok, Teen Choice Awards, now we’re talking.
Fox on Thursday released the second wave of 2016 TCA nominations, and it’s full of our favorites — including Klaus and Cami’s final kiss on The Originals (Choice Liplock), and Sam and Castiel’s certain je ne sais quoi on Supernatural (Choice Chemistry).

30 years ago today, Navy fighter pilot hotshots Maverick, Iceman, and Goose first flew across big screens around the world. It was on May 16, 1986 that Top Gun opened in theaters. Already well on his way to becoming a household name thanks to 1983’s Risky Business, Tom Cruise became a certified movie star with the release of Top Gun. It was also the first hit for director Tony Scott, who went on to direct other action flicks and thrillers like Crimson Tide, Man on Fire, and Déjà Vu (which reunited him with Top Gun star Val Kilmer) before his death in 2012. Top Gun, a slick, upbeat, Reagan-era ode to masculinity, boasted a memorable soundtrack (with Berlin’s “Take My Breath Away” and Kenny Loggins’ “Danger Zone”), impressive dogfights, an endlessly quotable though often goofy script, and, upon its release, immediate box office success. It became the highest grossing movie of 1986. Also on this day, »

Klaus Mikaelson (Joseph Morgan) is not someone who handles life well when things don't go his way, as we've learned over the past three seasons of The Originals (and on The Vampire Diaries before that). So naturally, he's not handling the death of his love, Cami (Leah Pipes) in the best way. E! News has an exclusive sneak peek at Friday's episode, in which Klaus is in the "anger" stage of his grief over Cami's murder. Well, Tbh, he's kind of always in a perma-anger stage but it's especially bad this week. He basically skips over the mourning and goes straight to the "avenging her death" portion of his grieving process, but Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) wants to do something a little »
The Performer | Leah Pipes
The Show | The Originals
The Episode | “No More Heartbreaks” (April 29, 2016)
The Performance | From the moment Camille O’Connell first appeared in Season 4 of The Vampire Diaries to the moment she bid farewell on Friday’s The Originals, she never stopped looking for her purpose — and, ideally, herself in the process. In fact, during her three-season transformation from bartender to psychologist to vampire, the only constant was Pipes’ commitment to the under-appreciated role.
But she never played into her character’s insecurities. In spite of her dark surroundings, Pipes always infused Cami with a sense of optimism »
How is it that I’m more worried about Cami after Friday’s episode of The Originals than I was when she was literally dead in Klaus’ bed?
This week’s hectic hour found Team Mikaelson attempting to defeat Lucien 2.0 and Aurora 1.5 — she hasn’t made the full transformation yet, but she’s already there mentally — with somewhat mixed results. TVLine spoke with executive producer Michael Narducci about three of this week’s biggest twists, but first, a quick recap:

Friday’s episode of The Vampire Diaries pummeled us with two major breakups, and I’m honestly not sure which split was more depressing.

The first breakup — the more obviously heartbreaking one, shall we say — was between Valerie and Stefan, freshly reunited with his own body after spending nearly two full episodes waltzing about as that Joseph Morgan look-alike. Returning Stefan’s soul nearly cost Valerie her life, and during a post-spell chat set to Ruelle’s devastating “I Get to Love You,” she acknowledged that her brooding boyfriend was more »
How much gas does The Vampire Diaries still have in its tank? Well, it depends on who you ask.
Ian Somerhalder on Sunday shocked fans at WalkerStalkerCon when he said, “We have decided to do one last season to really do the story justice.” And just a few days earlier, Kat Graham disclosed that regardless of how long the series continues, she’s pulling the plug on Bonnie Bennett — figuratively speaking, or not — after Season 8.

It turns out The Originals are a lot like the Aristocats — everybody wants to be one. And on Friday’s episode, two evil wannabes finally made their dream a reality.
That’s right, fellow humans — Lucien and Aurora officially made the leap from regular ol’ vampires to original vampires. On crack. Or steroids. Or both. Either way, as Lucien explained, they’re an “upgrade” from the traditional model. (We didn’t technically see Aurora this week, but like Klaus, I think it’s »
I can’t say I’ve ever seen The Revenant, but after watching Friday’s Vampire Diaries — directed by executive producer Julie Plec — I can confidently say I feel like I’ve seen it.
Trapped in the shell of an alcoholic fugitive, Stefan weathered the elements, angry locals and his host body’s debilitating addiction in order to reunite with his brother — all while his real body was being ridden dirty by a sadistic vampire from the 19th century. (When Mary Louise destroyed the Phoenix Stone, she »
In this episode of The Originals season 3, "Behind the Black Horizon," Elijah and Finn travel to Mystic Falls because that is where Lucien has taken a kidnapped Freya. It is also there that the brothers run into an old "friend," The Vampire Diaries' Matt Donovan (guest star Zach Roerig,) Since Matt killed Finn the last time they met, their reunion is not a happy one.
Meanwhile, Lucien wants Vincent to perform a ritual that will make him stronger than the Originals, Klaus and Hayley work together to investigate Lucien's company, and Davina worries about Kol in light of his recent behavior. Joseph Morgan directed this action-packed episode which sees the death of one of the Originals siblings.
Joseph Morgan gets by with a lot of help from his wife, Persia White. This week's episode of The Originals marks Morgan's television directorial debut. He's directed a few short films on the past, but never something on this scale, and he was surprised by how "huge" the episode ended up being in terms of sequences, stunts, and visual effects. Thankfully, his wife was by his side to support him through it all. "My wife was just incredible during the whole process. She was just so utterly supportive," Morgan, 34, tells People. "I couldn't have done it without her." During the eight days of filming, »

For a guy who claims to be unlovable, The Originals‘ Klaus Mikaelson sure does have a lot of special ladies in his life.

Friday’s episode (The CW, 9/8c) marks star Joseph Morgan‘s first turn as director — he knows actors usually have to wait until at least Season 5 to direct an episode, but as he says, “This is my season five” as Klaus — and while we had him on the horn, we used the opportunity to sort out his character’s many complicated relationships, which »
