Ladies and gentlemen the annual Comic-Con is officially underway in San Diego. CA. Keeping true to tradition, the celebration of pop culture held an annual ‘Preview Night,’ where four pilots from the upcoming Fall season were unveiled. This year’s shows included an encore screening of The Originals with some never before seen footage. Collider was in attendance for all the pilots’ previews and has broken down the revised pilot of The Originals and let us in on the all the details. Here’s what Collider had to say about The Originals unseen footage aired at Comic-Con.
After Klaus agrees to let the baby and Hayley live, Elijah returns to pick up “the girl,” as he calls her, and take her with him. It’s obvious that he’s extremely invested in her and the baby’s safety. He even takes off his jacket and offers it to her to keep her warm. There’s a small hint of perhaps future romance for the two. He makes it clear that if anything happens to her, the witches will have to deal with him. In the following scene, Klaus, Marcel and his vampires are seen celebrating in the streets of New Orleans. They seem to be partaking in some sort of parade, while Klaus knows that it’s all part of a plan to take back what’s rightfully his. Sadly, for Klaus/Caroline fans, that sweet voice mail message that he left her in the backdoor pilot was replaced by this scene. The episode ends with a young witch named Davina, which just so happens to be Marcel’s secret weapon to keeping the witches in check. She’s able to sense when magic is being used and based on her actions, her own magic seems to be very powerful.
