Now that The Originals has completed the first half of its freshman season, we’re stoked for what should be an epic second half. We’ve been going a bit crazy since the drama-filled December 3 midseason finale, and this winter hiatus has really been getting us down. The one thing we’re clinging to the fact that our favorite new series is just gone for a few weeks and will make its return on January 14, 2014.
On that exciting night, we'll get to see Season 1, Episode 10 — "The Casket Girls." And while there’s still no official synopsis for the midseason premiere, you can still feast your eyes on the epic promo. In the video, we finally get to see Sophie Deveraux (Daniella Pineda) again, though she’s bearing bad news. "Everything is going to change," Sophie mutters into a cell phone. Those haunting words can only mean that things are alive and cooking in the witch population once more, and we can just imagine the scorned mystics are going to be seeking retribution against the Mikaelson family for killing the last living elder. We knew Klaus Mikaelson's (Joseph Morgan) respite atop his kingdom wouldn't last long, but we weren’t expecting things to go downhill this fast.
This does mean, however, that The Vampire Diaries is going to be one episode ahead of its spin-off, with it returning with Season 5, Episode 11 (aka the 100th episode) while The Originals returns with Episode 10. All we know is that we are loving both of our favorite supernatural shows this season!
Is it January 14 yet?Are you ready for this winter hiatus to be over? Hit the comments and let us know!
