Three weeks from tonight, The CW will air the series premiere of The Originals on a special night and time before it moves to its regular night on Tuesday, Oct. 8. Today, the network released the official episode guide for “Always and Forever.”
Like the backdoor pilot that aired in April, the episode focuses on Klaus (Joseph Morgan), the Original hybrid, as he journeys to New Orleans. His brother Elijah (Daniel Gillies) also makes the trip to the French Quarter while their sister Rebekah (Claire Holt) opts to stay in Mystic Falls for the time being.

“KLAUS MIKAELSON, THE ORIGINAL VAMPIRE/WEREWOLF HYBRID, RETURNS TO NEW ORLEANS IN THIS SPIN-OFF OF THE VAMPIRE DIARIES — Klaus Mikaelson (Joseph Morgan), the original vampire-werewolf hybrid, has returned to the supernatural melting pot that is the French Quarter of New Orleans – the city his family helped build 300 years ago. Determined to help his brother, Elijah (Daniel Gillies) leaves their sister Rebekah (Claire Holt) behind and follows Klaus.
Elijah learns that the beautiful and rebellious werewolf Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) – Klaus’ onetime flame – has fallen into the hands of a powerful witch named Sophie Deveraux (Daniella Pineda). When Sophie reveals some life-changing news, Elijah realizes that the Original family may have been given a second chance at humanity and redemption.
Klaus, however, is more intrigued by his recent unexpected reunion with his former protégé, Marcel (Charles Michael Davis), a charismatic but diabolical vampire who now has total control over the supernatural inhabitants of New Orleans. Klaus vows to reclaim what was once his – the power, the city and his family.
The series also stars Leah Pipes as Cami and Danielle Campbell as Davina. Chris Grismer directed the episode written by executive producer Julie Plec and co-executive producer Michael Narducci.”
The Originals premieres Thursday, Oct. 3 at 9/8c on The CW.
