The wait for Season 3 of "The Originals" is over. The premiere episode will be aired by The CW on the new air day Thursday, 8 October (it used to be aired on Monday) . From what we saw in Season 2, we had high expectations from the coming episodes in terms of gore, magic and romance.
Season 2 of "The Originals" had ended with the Mikaelsons at each other's throats yet again, with Klaus (Joseph Morgan) having crossed all lines with his siblings in the face of adversity. While Klaus believes that what he did was necessary to protect Hope, Elijah (Daniel Gillies) thinks the measures he took were too extreme and unforgivable.
Klaus damned his baby's mother Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) to living as a werewolf and killed his brother's latest love interest. While his family may never forgive him, his fans can forgive him for all that. However, there is one thing that fans cannot forgive him for, and that is not kissing Cami (Leah Pipes).
In the last interaction between Klaus and Cami, he told her some intensely romantic things. Instead of kissing her then, he pulled away at the last moment – which not only left us dissatisfied, but also left Cami embarrassed.
In an interview with Clevver News, Lea Pipes revealed that in that moment, thick with raw emotions, she had expected her screen partner to at least sneakily kiss her. However, it did not happen, and her embarrassment was captured by the cameras, she says.
Pipes added that this rejection would cause Cami to draw clear lines with Klaus in their relationship in the coming season. This is definitely bad news for "Klami" shippers, but if distance is what will bring Klaus closer to Cami, then we are all for it.
Meanwhile, fans can expect to see the return of the original Mikaelson siblings Finn (Casper Zafer), Rebekkah (Claire Holt) and Kol (Nathanial Buzolic) in flashback scenes not too long into the premiere.
"We've always understood that the Mikaelson family, the brothers and sister, had to flee in the wake of Esther's death by Klaus' hands… So wouldn't it be cool to see the family not long after that? What was their state of mind? What were their relationships like? How did they relate to one another knowing Mikael was out there somewhere, and they're relatively new vampires so what was their existence like?" writer Michael Narducci explains to TV Guide.
Watch out for the Season 3 premiere of "The Originals" at 9.00 pm (EST) on The CW on Thursday, 8 October. You can also live stream "For the Next Millennium" via CWTV.
