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's Disappearance Was All Because of [SPOILER] on 'The Originals' & We're Still in Shock!

SPOILERS AHEAD – DO NOT READ IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW!

Anyone want to talk about the massive amounts of daddy issues that Hope has on The Originals?

She has so many that she was behind mom Hayley’s supernatural kidnapping all so Klaus would return to help find her – and while Hayley was supposed to pop up a-ok in the end – she actually really went missing!

“What we really wanted was for there to be a consequence for Hope’s behavior,” executive producer Julie Plec told TVLine. “Something that seemed like an impetuous teenage move turned into something with more dangerous consequences.”

“I think fans will be surprised…I don’t think a lot of them will be very happy seeing Hope is a little rebellious. But, I understand that she’s desperate to reunite with her father. You’ll see the consequences throughout the course of the season,” Danielle Rose Russell adds. “It definitely takes a toll on her.”

Be sure to watch Hope and Klaus’s scenes below!

Joseph Morgan & Danielle Rose Russell Talks Hope & Klaus' Reunion on 'The Originals' Tonight

Hope and Klaus are reunited tonight on The Originals – and it’s going to be an awkward reunion.

Both stars – Joseph Morgan and Danielle Rose Russell – opened up about the father/daughter dynamic between the two after having not seen each other for seven long years.

“There’s still some resentment there and a lot of sort of anger and upset there,” Joseph shared with TV Guide of the tense feelings. “She still feels certainly abandoned by her dad, and he feels this tremendous sense of guilt.”

He adds that Klaus “sort of covers for that by telling himself the lie that, ‘She’s better off without me.’ But it becomes quickly apparent that she is not, and she’s going down a path where he needs to step in and help and be a parent… It’s turbulent to say the least, their relationship.”

Danielle spoke with EW about the same situation, telling the glossy that the reunion is “a little emotional.”

“They really begin to navigate their new relationship for the first time in a very long time, and it’s really emotional to do that,” she adds. “If you hadn’t spoken to your father in seven or eight years, or since you were a young child and now you’re a teenager, you’ve changed a lot.”

“I think Hope really has come to terms with who Klaus is, so it’s a really interesting dynamic that this season will begin to explore.”

The Originals airs TONIGHT @ 9PM ET/PT on The CW.

'The Originals' Showrunner Talks More About Hope-Centered Spinoff

'The Originals' Showrunner Talks More About Hope-Centered Spinoff

Julie Plec is giving fans a little more insight about the possible Originals spinoff, which would center on Hope Mikaelson.

We know that Danielle Rose Russell would return as Hope, as well as Matt Davis as Alaric.

Now, speaking with Variety, Julie teased that it was always their intention to continue any kind of story with Hope.

“Outside of Hope herself we really didn’t think about the spinoff, in terms of how we were going to end the series,” she shared. “The spinoff has always just been a nugget of hope that lives in the recesses of my mind, but I didn’t want to make any real decisions based on a maybe for the future

For Hope, she’d be the “Angel to whoever the Buffy is.”

Julie adds, “She’s lived a lot, she’s experienced a lot, she’s faced death, and I think the important thing to remember as we head into this season is that death is always a threat — and often successful!”

“I like the idea that at 17 she’s seen more, done more, felt more and loved more than most people at that age.”

In the season five premiere of The Originals, Marcel Gerard got down on one knee and proposed to Rebekah Mikaelson and it was beautiful – but the potential engagement didn’t happen.

“It was sad, I felt so bad for him!” Claire Holt told TVLine. “He went to so much effort for this beautiful proposal, and she just couldn’t get herself together. I would have said yes, and then just dealt with it later, right?”

Charles Michael Davis admitted that that “all my characters get rejected,” but he isn’t giving up on Marcel and Rebekah just yet.

“They’re immortal, so there’s always a chance,” Charles said.
