Browse our gallery of new pics from ‘The Originals’ premiere & weigh in with your thoughts!
I hope you like awesome hair, because these new shots from the series premiere of The Originals are full of it! Along with present-day hair moments — Elijah’s (Daniel Gillies) mane remains flawless, as always — the Oct. 3 episode, titled “Always And Forever,” also takes us back to the early days of the Mikaelson family; and you know what that means: flashback wigs!
This week’s ‘Vampire Diaries’ set the stage for some hard times in the Big Easy. If The CW doesn’t pick up this spin-off, it would be a crime against television.
I don’t think we’re in Mystic Falls anymore, Toto! The April 25 episode of The Vampire Diaries — aka the back-door pilot for The Originals, which I’m crossing my fingers for harder than ever — introduced us to the “dark side” of New Orleans, where Klaus’ (Joseph Morgan) former protege Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) rules the roost. You know, when he’s not rocking the karaoke mic. But Klaus and Marcel’s buddy-buddy routine fell to pieces as Klaus became resentful of his former BFF, and vowed to steal back his kingdom.
Plus, Elena’s bloodlust is out of control! Is she headed down Ripper Road?
I’m just going to come out and say it: This was a really weird episode of The Vampire Diaries, like, in every sense of the word. Elena (Nina Dobrev) became a cheerleader, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) had sex — more on that later — and to top it all off, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) didn’t call anyone a dick. Things are not what they should be in Mystic Falls. No, not at all.
The series would potentially star Joseph Morgan & Phoebe Tonkin in their original ‘Vampire Diaries’ roles.
If one hour of The Vampire Diaries every week isn’t enough to quench your thirst, I’ve got some good news: a spin-off series is in the works, according to HollywoodLife.com‘s sister site Deadline, and it’ll feature a pair of very familiar faces. The Originals would chronicle the adventures of the Mikaelson family — including Joseph Morgan‘s Klaus.
Plus, which brother — or should I say brother(s) — did Elena find herself in bed with?
Our girl Elena (Nina Dobrev) is going through some changes, and I’m not talking about the birds and the bees — unless those birds and bees happen to come installed with off-the-wall emotions and an unquenchable thirst for blood. The Oct. 25 episode of The Vampire Diaries found Elena struggling to control her urges, while simultaneously deciding whether Stefan (Paul Wesley) or Damon (Ian Somerhalder) is the key to her salvation. And isn’t that what it always comes down to?
The search for the remaining crystals intensifies, as the Circle zeroes in on the traitor in their midst. You’ll never believe who it is! Seriously, I’m still scratching my head.
Following Jane’s death, Cassie (Britt Robertson) was trying to keep from falling apart on the April 26 episode of The Secret Circle. But in a moment of weakness, she couldn’t help kissing Adam (Thomas Dekker), who — judging by the look on his face — didn’t seem to mind all that much. That was my first clue that our young Mr. Conant remembers more about his feelings for Cassie than he was letting on.
But is the big change permanent? Because I’m kind of terrified to find out how heartbreak will affect Cassie’s already dark powers.
I hope Cassie (Britt Robertson) and Adam (Thomas Dekker) enjoyed their first — and potentially final — night together, because it’s pretty much all downhill from here. John (Joe Lando) showed up on Cassie’s doorstep on the March 22 episode of The Secret Circle to clue them into the whole your-love-is-a-curse thing. Cassie tried to play dumb, but John was basically like, “Look, I know you guys had sex last night. Your lawn is covered in dead birds!”
I’m thinking this week’s episode title, ‘Lucky,’ was all leading up to Adam & Cassie’s epic last scene.
Everyone’s first time is awkward, but can you imagine how much more awkward it would be if a gaggle of pervy birds were watching you do it from above your house? That’s how it was for Cassie (Britt Robertson) and Adam (Thomas Dekker) on the March 15 episode of The Secret Circle when they finally decided to do the dirty — but there’s really much more to the story.
The family reunion we’ve all been waiting for finally came this week!
I’ve got to say, John Blackwell (Joe Lando) looks pretty good for a guy who’s been presumed dead for more than a decade. Cassie’s (Britt Robertson) old man finally showed his face on the Feb. 16 episode of The Secret Circle, and it took less than an hour for her to try to kill him. (Is it just me, or does every girl on The CW have crippling daddy issues?)
Plus, Diana and Faye slut it up big time — while Melissa convulses on the floor.
Cassie’s (Britt Robertson) game of emotional ping-pong continued on the Feb. 9 episode of The Secret Circle — and Adam (Thomas Dekker) was, once again, this week’s winner. His prize? A mouth party with Chance Harbor’s darkest little witch! If kissing were a big deal, I might have to call Cassie a slut.
Plus, Cassie learns more about her not-so-dead father.
If Faye (Phoebe Tonkin) was a real person, I would kick her in the shins for what she did on the Feb. 2 episode of The Secret Circle. Her increasingly troubling addiction to Devil’s Spirit aside, she committed a major no-no when she [Spoiler alert!] totally made out with Jake (Chris Zylka)! Doesn’t she know it isn’t smart to piss off Cassie (Britt Robertson) now that she’s all hopped up on crazy dark magic?
Do you think Cassie made the right choice? (Spoiler alert: I DO NOT!)
The Jan. 12 episode of The Secret Circle confirmed two things we already knew: Faye (Phoebe Tonkin) is out of her mind, and Chance Harbor High School should probably have more than one chaperone at its next dance. Beyond that, it also gave viewers something they’ve been waiting a long time for. Cassie (Britt Robertson) finally gave in and locked lips with…
Plus, Britt Robertson explains that even though Cassie ‘needs’ Jake now, Adam is still very much ‘a possibility.’
As Cassie (Britt Robertson) continues to embrace her Balcoin heritage, her dark powers will start to take their toll on the people in her life — beginning with Faye (Phoebe Tonkin)! “This week, you’ll really get to see them go toe-to-toe,” Britt tells HollywoodLife.com about The Secret Circle‘s Jan. 12 episode. “Cassie’s not digging Faye. … The level of the aggression she ends up going at Faye with is probably her darker self within.”
Crazy powers, hot grandmas, and — oh yes — Chris Zylka. What more could we ask for from the ‘Secret Circle’ midseason premiere?
2012 is going to be a dark year for Ms. Cassie Blake (Britt Robertson). Not only did she learn about her Balcoin heritage on the Jan. 5 episode of The Secret Circle, but she also summoned some serious dark magic for her most epic spell yet — and I’m not talking about the choking spell that almost killed Adam (Thomas Dekker.) That one was a no-no.
‘The Secret Circle’ returns Jan. 5 and I’ve got a few hints about what’s going down in Chance Harbor…
Grab your crystals and slip on your v-necks, kids, because The Secret Circle is finally returning to our lives! I’ve already seen the Jan. 5 winter premiere — so many times I’ve lost count, actually — and at the risk of using my corniest line ever, it’s pretty magical. From sexy grandmas to brooding voodoo witches, I narrowed down the five things I think you’ll be most excited to see on the new episode.
