The Originals (2013) series was a spin-off of the Vampire Diaries (2009-2014) series. the Original family consisted of the Mikaelson siblings - Klaus, Elijah, and Rebekah. they were the first generation of vampires created. the story started with Hayley, a werewolf who got pregnant with Klaus child on their one night stand. despite his reluctant front, Klaus looked forward to meeting his first child. at the same time, he had to take back his kingdom, New Orleans, from his protege, Marcel.
surprisingly, The Originals (2013) series was so much more easier to watch than the Vampire Diaries (2009-2014) series. the pace was absolutely fast, from Hayley's pregnancy to the fights against Marcel, and not forgetting the seemingly inevitable and delicious conflicts between the Mikaelson siblings. it was so interesting to see a different light and knowing the true story behind the siblings, especially the misunderstood Klaus, always so blunt and so inconceivable, yet he was so full of emotions and longings he became one of the most lovable characters in no time.
