Daniel Gillies & Joseph Morgan Preview Tonight's Elijah-Centric 'Originals' Episode

Daniel Gillies takes center stage on The Originals tonight, in an Elijah Mikaelson-centric episode.

“He’s a very different being,” the actor recently told TVGuide about how Elijah is without his memories.

Daniel adds that “he’s lost a millennium of information, but he has all of this kind of vampiric muscle memory, in terms of his abilities and what not. He’s discovering who he is.”

Joseph Morgan, who will pop up in certain spots as Klaus, also directed the episode.

“I was excited by the writing itself and then the fact that it wasn’t jumping around between storylines,” he also told TVGuide. “It was just one through line, so it was a chance to really, really invest in the story that we’re telling.

“I felt sort of like I was making a prequel movie about Elijah. So that’s kind of the way we tackled it.”

Joseph continues, “What I wanted to do, because we were on a journey, is travel with Elijah a lot, so there’s a lot of moving shots with him, following him. There’s also a lot of that kind of that gritty, grimy feel of New York that I wanted, as opposed to the beauty of Manosque and the piano bar.”

The Originals airs TONIGHT, May 2nd @ 9PM ET/PT on The CW.

    Hayley is my favorite character, she is also one of the main characters of The Originals , it’s super unprofessional to kill one of the amazing characters on The Originals. Hayley is Hopes mom, are they just gonna take her mom away from her ? Hayley has tried so hard to keep her daughter happy and safe and this is what she gets in return? Hayley deserves so much more happiness and she doesn’t deserve to die. The Originals is my favorite show but without Hayley I’m done with it.

    The Originals has a very bad habit of killing off it’s female characters.
    Male series regular has never suffered the same fate. Hayley is such a
    strong female character, all she wants is to protect her daughter, by taking her away from the show Julie Plec ruin the show. Julie Plec should stop killing off main females characters

  • Fernanda

    Hayley Marshall is an amazing character and a great mother. Hayley can’t die. She doesn’t deserve this. Hayley deserves the best ending with Hope. Plec really shouldn’t ruin the The Originals on it’s last season. If Plec kill off Hayley I will boycott this show and I won’t watch anything else Julie Plec has her hands on.

    Hayley Marshall is the first female lead in the TVD/TheOriginals universe who chose morals over love, didn’t crumple under pressure but thrived in it,and wasn’t used as a way to keep the male leads “good” like what was done with Elena/Damon, Caroline/Klaus, Cami/Klaus, Davina/Kol. Feminism is important to the world now and without Hayley it’s just another patriarchical show

    Julie Plec seems to have a problem with moms, she constantly kills them in her show. She killed off Katie in Containment, Jo in TVD, and now she want to do the same in The Originals. It’s really disgusting. It looks like that Julie Plec thinks the only mother who deserves to live is Caroline. It is disgusting that Julie Plec think it is ok to kill off a mother, to make a place for Caroline.

    Hayley Marshall is a big part of TO. She has grown into a much better person because of her daughter. Hayley didn’t get the chance to fully know her mother so Hope should be able to get that chance. Hope will only be 15 that is very young to lose her mother. Hayley fought for years for the safety of her child even before Hope was born. Hayley deserves every right and happiness with the child she gave life to

    Hayley Marshall is one of my favorite characters and my favorite female in the show, she’s badass and amazing! She’s Hopes mother it would be completely wrong to take her away after all that has happened to Hope.

  • paul

    Hayley’s character is the best , it shows how incredibly powerfull women can be, and it’s not fair that she’s being killed off, Hayley deserves better, she should be alive

  • disqus_s7UbhcpT5N

    Hayley Marshall is the female lead on TO. Hayley is a fighter, a legend, she deserves better than what Plec have planned for her. Julie Plec want to kill her off, take away a mother from Hope ,and replaced her by Caroline. It is really disgusting, I didn’t think that Julie Plec would fall so low

  • Kevin Ryan

    Hayley Marshall is the greatest character of TO, her development is breathtaking, her strength, the way she fiercely stands up for those she love, she better have a happy life after all or these five long seasons will mean nothing to me and to many others.

  • Christelle Perez

    Hayley is the best character in TO and she has a such beautiful, singular and genuine heart and spent all those years helping to build every little piece of the show with her narrative, she’s so important! So it would be very unfair to be ruthlessly pulled of the show and she’s has gone through many horrors, pain, cruelties, atrocities, and always in search of love, happiness and family for years and years and deserves with all strength a happy ending with Hope, a worthy outcome.
