As part of our Fall Preview we are sharing what we hope to see on our favorite returning shows this fall. In May a number of series ended their seasons with character deaths, cliffhangers and shocking twists. Before they all come back in September and October, we are chiming in on what we hope to see during the upcoming season. Our writers will cover several shows. Today we’re heading to New Orleans with our wishlist for The Originals’ third season.
Season 2 of The Originals was a success overall. Personally when the entire family showed up I was worried about having Esther make a move against her child AGAIN. Add in the surprising return of Freya and the evil Dahlia, it could have been overwhelming. Instead we got tense family reunions and shocking betrayal, which is something the Mikaelson family does exceptionally well. The finale left off with new battle lines being drawn and one character, I’m looking at you Davina, in a powerful new position. All in all Season 3 has the makings of a great season! Here’s what I’d like to see:
1. Elijah Gets Serious Love Interest
Hayley is married, so Elijah should have someone in his life too. No offense to Gia, but she was never positioned as a serious love interest. She was a cool girl who helped Elijah deal with Hayley walking down the aisle. Honestly neither of them made it seem like their relationship was serious. With the brothers’ strained relationship, Hayley cursed and only Marcel to talk to, Elijah is going to need other people to share scenes with. Most importantly, he deserves to have a real prospect to balance Hayley’s current marital status.
Ready for Round 3 in New Orleans? What do you want to see when The Originals return?
