While we can’t get enough of Teen Wolf alum Daniel Sharman as the new version of mischevious Original brother Kol on The Originals, nothing will ever beat the original Original portrayer, Nathaniel Buzolic.
Back on The Vampire Diaries and a few times on the spinoff series, Buzolic shined as the gleefully devious and evil vampire before Sharman took over as Kol placed in the body of a witch this season. But in tonight’s epic midseason finale, fans will finally get to see Buzolic back as Kol!
The Originals executive producer Michael Narducci revealed some major scoop to E! News on the “jam packed” episode, including everything you could possibly want to know about Buzolic’s big return.
“One of the things that happens in this episode is there is a flashback storyline where we get to see Nathaniel Buzolic back as Kol,” Narducci said. “We get to see what he was up to 100 years ago in New Orleans and what led to his interactions with his siblings and why, when we met him on The Vampire Diaries, he was daggered and in a box.”
According to The Originals boss, Kol had a specific plan in the past that has major ramifications for the present.
“He had an agenda back in 1914 with the witches,” Narducci said. “That definitely informs Kol’s alliance with Davina (Danielle Campbell) now and his feelings towards his siblings. He’s walking a very fine line. He has no love for Esther (Sonja Sohn) and is being controlled and manipulated by her, and he’s always felt, to a certain extent, that he was left out of the ‘always and forever’ vow between Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Elijah (Daniel Gillies) and Rebekah (Claire Holt). So he has complex relationships with both sides of this struggle. He has a very interesting role to play in this episode.”
Kol may have shifted his allegiance to his brothers in the last episode, but will he stay loyal in the midseason finale?
“That is the million dollar question,” Narducci hedged.
One reunion that is sure to be tense as hell is the long-awaited reunion between Mikael (Sebastian Roche) and Esther, and it all goes down in tonight’s episode!
“Mikael is definitely going to have an attitude about some of the things that Esther has done, namely the fact that she brought back Finn (Yusuf Gatewood), Kol and Ansel (Lloyd Owen) in the flesh, but certainly didn’t care enough about Mikael to bring him back too,” Narducci teased. “He had to rely on Davina. So when he sees Esther, they have a lot of unfinished business and a lot to discuss.”
But that discussion could lead to a devastating result for Klaus and his siblings.
“Surprisingly, we realize that their drives are not mutually exclusive,” Narducci said. “Mikael has always hated Klaus, and Esther realizes Klaus is the one standing in the way of Elijah and Rebekah possibly accepting her deal, so it might be time for them to make an alliance to get rid of Klaus. It’s a pretty frightening alliance if it were to go forward!”
