A The Originals Community
Friday 9:00 PM on The CW (Returning 2018)

It's a truth universally acknowledged that The Originals spin-off was a long-time coming. Klaus, Rebekah, and Elijah weaseled their way into the hearts of Vampire Diaries fans the moment they entered Mystic Falls. There was simply no way they'd be confined to one series for long. So when it was finally announced there would be an entire series dedicated to the Mikaelson family, there wasn't much else to do but scream "It's about time!" and then throw a giant party.

Whether or not you like the idea of the characters relocating to New Orleans, or whether you'd have preferred a prequel series, there's one thing we can all agree on: this series is going to be awesome. But because we still have some time to kill before the series premiere on October 3, let's talk favorites...

Elijah seems to be the original that is most grounded. Klaus is petulant and impulsive, Rebekah appears cynical but is steadfastly loyal and forgiving eventually.

Okay, so I'm fairly sure that Mikael's surname isn't Mikaelson, since he can't be his own son, so it would be his father's name + son. Just saying.

You are 110% correct. Mikael's surname wasn't Mikaelson, unless his father was named Mikael too, which I hightly doubt.

Yeah. You'd think someone would have called him 'Junior' by now, were that the case. (Haha just kidding. That would be great though.) :)

Maybe it's just because of his suits (like a perpetual suit-wearing machine, really) . . .





Or his tattoo . . .



Or her prom dress and scheming face . . .





But whatever it is, I can't decide. (Though yeah, I voted for Elijah because BCF rocks this town.)

But if Jer were an Original . . .



Oh yeah.

I really love Rebekah. I think that her character is very well written. She is very sensitive and passionate but in the same time she can be ruthless and revengeful. But in my opinion she is too trusting and easily forgives her brother Klaus. Above all she is simply adorable.

Klaus is unparallel- The other originals are extremely good but nothing beats as klaus would put it his 'COMPLEXITY'

I cannot pick one! I voted Klaus, Elijah, and Kol (because I loved Kol), and Mikael because Sebastian Roché. Elijah is the one I get really excited to see onscreen but Klaus! He's nearly perfect and Joseph Morgan. Honestly. Trying to pick just one hurts.

1. Klaus 2. Elijah 3. Rebekah. Klause will always be my number one out of the originals but Rebekah keeps surprising me and I keep changing my mind about her and Elijah. The others like cole and the eldest I forget his name where not that great cole seeed abit spoiled and bratty for my taste.

"Finn? He's more interesting in a box." - Klaus (I think? Might have been someone else).

He was made into an original by the mother when she failed, then got elena and bonnie to feed her blood to him and thus alaric the original was born.

Um pretty sure Alaric doesn't count. His turning was a matter of twisted circumstance that resulted in some type of brainwashed super robo-vamp. The reason they are called the Originals isn't just because of their abilities and elevated immortality, but because they were the FIRST vampires (screw Silas and whatever the hell he is because I'm still confused on that one) and the ones who created OTHER vampires. Alaric didn't turn anybody and he wasn't around 1,000 years ago. Plus he doesn't have the same weaknesses that they do and he's tied to Elena. Alaric is in a league of his own just like Silas.

On another note, I love the 4 main siblings, but I think I like Klaus the most. I think he's a fascinating character. I don't just look at him and see a villian or anti-hero, I see a person who was mentally, verbally, and physically abused for most of their life that was suddenly burdened/gifted with an immortal life and powers. A person whose been haunted by that horrible past and pursued by his abuser for centuries. Abuse like that changes a person in one lifetime, it's intiguing to think about that change expanding MULTIPLE lifetimes. His experiences have twisted him into someone so dark that not even his siblings can recognize him and now he appears to slowly be finding his way back. I'm pretty sure 'The Originals' is going to ruin all that for me though. *sigh*

I'm surprised by that, too. I've only very recently started to like her, mostly because of her interactions with Matt.

My favorite has always been Elijah. I really like Klaus, too, though. I used to find Kol totally psychotic, but he started to grow on me, too. I kind of hope he can come back somehow.
