“Thoughts & prayers to all those who have been affected by the #SydneySiege today. Sad to see this sort of terror …” Nate wrote on Twitter, sending good thoughts and prayers to everyone affected by the situation.
He added later on, “Saddened by the loss of life in Sydney this morning. There are no words. Prayers to the families & friends who have been forever changed x.”

If you’re anything like us, you can’t get enough of The Originals – so it’s a good thing we have the new Kol-focused web series, The Awakening, to feed our addiction.
JJJ caught up with writer Carina Mackenzie to get the scoop on how the series came to fruition and what we can expect.
“The first episode I wrote of The Originals back in season one was originally going to tell this flashback story about how Kol’s time in New Orleans had set in motion all these little things that were having an influence on our characters in the present,” Carina said. “We ended up having to do something different with that episode — for a lot of reasons, one of which was that it was airing the same night that Nathaniel Buzolic‘s episode of Supernatural was airing, and there was some concern from the network about that — but I had already written this flashback story. I kind of thought oh well, it’s just gonna be this thing on the cutting room floor. But when the opportunity came up to do this web series with Target, we knew we wanted to do a flashback story, so I repurposed that old story.”
As for how his story connects to what’s currently going on in the French Quarter, Carina said, “It ties together very strongly with what’s happening right now. In present day, Daniel Sharman‘s version of Kol has been flirting with Davina (Danielle Campbell) but we haven’t really heard his plans, his agenda. In the flashbacks, we’ll finally tell the story of what Kol wants for himself, and why he needs Davina, specifically, to get it. We’re also going to introduce a couple of locations in the web series — Kol’s secret clubhouse, and then later another place I can’t tell you about for fear of the spoiler gods striking me down — that are going to become very important on the show.”
The second segment of The Awakening will be live on CWTV.com @ 8PM ET, just in time for a new episode of The Originals on The CW!
