  • The Originals is a spin-off series originating from The Vampire Diaries. A thousand years ago the Original Vampire family swore to each other that family is power and they pledged to remain together forever. Centuries have passed and the family bonds are broken. Klaus Mikaelson heads to the French Quarter of New Orleans, a city his family helped build. His former protégé, Marcel, is now in control. Elijah follows Klaus to New Orleans where they discover werewolf Haley and a powerful witch named Sophie. Klaus has no intention of answering to his now powerful protégé and is determined to reclaim the city and the power along with reuniting his family. While waiting for Rebekah to join them, Klaus, Elijah and the witches form an uneasy alliance to make sure THE ORIGINALS once again rule New Orleans.moreless

  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (13)

    • Elijah: (voiceover) Over the course of my long life, I have come to believe that we are bound forever to those with whom we share blood. And while we may not choose our family, that bond can be our greatest strength...or our deepest regret. This unfortunate truth has haunted me for as long as I can recall.

    • Marcel: Why didn't you tell me your sister's back in town?
      Klaus: I thought it'd be more amusing for you to find out for yourself.
      Marcel: Is there anything else that I need to know?
      Klaus: Only that she's grown considerably more insane in the last century.
      Marcel: Or maybe that it was her who killed my guys.
      Klaus: Doubtful. Unless that biker bar is frequented by small-town high school quarterbacks, I can't imagine she'd be interested.

    • Klaus: (voiceover) My siblings and I are the first vampires in all of history. The Original Family. Three centuries ago, we helped build a town called New Orleans. Now a plot by witches has lured me back, hoping that I will defeat a tyrant, a vampire I created. My brother hopes I will find redemption through the power of family, a miracle child, part werewolf, part vampire, a hybrid. My sister is doubtful; she thinks I am beyond redemption. Despite my brother's best efforts, I have a plan of my own. I will take back my home and reclaim what was mine. I will be king.

    • Sophie: interrupting the Harvest preliminary ritual What are you doing?
      Bastianna: I am saving the community you renounced.

    • Rebekah: My brothers and I are the first vampires in history, the Originals. Three hundred years ago, we called New Orleans home. Now, we've returned, drawn by a witch who seeks to use my brother Klaus' unborn child as leverage in a brewing war. But his quest for power has turned brother against brother, leaving our family more divided than ever. Now that Elijah has returned, can our family unite to face this new threat?

    • Joshua: Klaus wants me to steal some dagger from you. He knows I’m working for you, I’m sure of it.
      Rebekah: That bastard wants to dagger us again, he deserves everything he’s gonna get.
      Marcel: Relax, if he knew, he would have ripped your spine out through your nose by now.
      Joshua: Oh, great. Now I feel totally at ease.

    • Cami: Would a laptop kill you?
      Klaus: The typewriter was good enough for Hemingway.
      Cami: I can see the resemblance: Booze and random acts of violence.

    • Hayley: Why are you trying to put together your family when it's so clear that one part of it is broken?
      Elijah:: The definition of the word broken suggests that something can be fixed.
