Always and Forever is the first episode of Season One of The Originals.


KLAUS MIKAELSON, THE ORIGINAL VAMPIRE-WEREWOLF HYBRID, RETURNS TO NEW ORLEANS IN THIS SPIN-OFF OF “THE VAMPIRE DIARIES” — Klaus Mikaelson, the original vampire-werewolf hybrid, has returned to the supernatural melting pot that is the french quarter of New Orleans – the city his family helped to build 300 years ago. Determined to help his brother, Elijah leaves their sister Rebekah behind and follows Klaus. Elijah learns that a beautiful and rebellious werewolf Hayley – Klaus’ onetime flame – has fallen into the hands of a powerful witch named Sophie Devereaux. When Sophie reveals some life-changing news, Elijah realizes that the Original family may have been given a second chance at humanity and redemption. Klaus, however, is more intrigued by his recent unexpected reunion with his former protégé Marcel, a charismatic but diabolical vampire who now has total control over the supernatural inhabitants of New Orleans. Klaus vows to reclaim what was once his – the power, the city and his family. The series also stars Leah Pipes as Cami and Danielle Campbell as Davina.


Elijah plays detective. He goes to New Orleans and find out that Hayley - a werewolf girl, Klaus slept with - is pregnant. The father of the child Hayley is carrying is no one else than Elijah's brother Niklaus Mikaelson. The witches want the Originals to help them. In fact, they blackmail Elijah to support their try of toppling Marcel. Elijah tries to convince Klaus helping the witches because he sees new chances with the hybrid baby.

Guest CastEdit



Elijah: (as narrator) "Over the course of my long life, I have come to believe that we are bound forever to those with whom we share blood. And while we may not choose our family, that bond can be our greatest strength...or our deepest regret. This unfortunate truth has haunted me for as long as I can recall."

Elijah: (to Marcel) : "It's time we had a little chat."
Rebekah: (to Elijah about an Unnamed Man) "Hello...hmm...lovely to see such a handsome face after a long journey...can I eat him brother?"
Klaus (to Rebekah) : "Are we saving the best for last?"
Elijah (to Klaus) : "Niklaus, your manners are as always without equal."

Sabine: "Are you gonna continue following me, Elijah, or do you wanna talk?"
Elijah: "You know who I am."
Sabine: "Original Vampire, always wears a suit. You and your family are famous amongst the Witches. Especially with back in town."

Marcel: "I gotta tell you, Soph, this street corner has not proven the luckiest spot for your family tonight. Not half an hour ago, we had to teach your sister a little lesson."
Sophie: "We're putting her to rest, Marcel. Leave us alone."
Marcel: "I never said you could move the body. Matter of fact, I left here here for a reason. Send a message. If anybody is thinking of joining some kind of rebellion, my rules state that witches can't practice magic in the Quarter. And yet, a little birdy informed me that Jane-Anne was cooking up something magically delicious. Oh, yeah. While I have you, quick Q and A. My old friend, the hybrid, Klaus, he just happened to show up out of the blue, asking for, of all people, Jane-Anne. Any idea why?"
Sophie: "I don't know. Witches don't get involved in Vampire business."

Elijah: "What did your sister want with Niklaus?"
Sophie: "Isn't it obvious? We have a vampire problem and we need help. Marcel has an army backing him. The witches have been trying to fight back; we haven't had much luck. Until my sister, Jane-Anne, met a girl, a werewolf passing through the Quarter from a small town in Virginia. She had a special...conncetion to your brother."
Elijah: "What kind of connection?"
Sophie: "Apparently, they spent some...time together. One thing led to another, and now, this special werewolf girl, she's pregnant and the father of the child she's carrying is your brother Klaus."
Elijah: "That's impossible."
Sophie: "Nothing's impossible, especially when it comes to your brother."

Hayley: (to Elijah) "Who the hell are you?"

Klaus (to Mikael as he was turning Hybrid) : "Father! It hurts!"
Hayley (to Elijah about Klaus) : "Your brother is a notorious psycho...who I slept with...classic me."
Klaus (to Hayley) : "You've been with someone else, admit it!!"
Hayley (to Klaus) : "Hey! I have spent days, held captive, in a friggin allegator bayou because they think that I'm carrying some magical miracle baby. Don't you think I would have fessed-up if it wasn't yours!?"
Klaus (to Sophie) : "Kill her...and the baby! What do I care!?"
Klaus (to Elijah) : "I will not be manipulated!"
Agnes (to Sophie) : "What makes you think that you can control the Hybrid!?"
Sophie (to Elijah about Hayley) : "Anything that happens to me, happens to her, which means her life is in my hands!"
Marcel (to Klaus) : "What's mine is yours, but it is mine! My home, my family, my rules!"
Marcel (to Klaus) : "I'm not the Prince of the quarter, friend, I'm the KING!"
Rebekah (to Elijah over the phone about Klaus) : "Leave him to his temper tantrum and come home."
Klaus (to Marcel) : "Your friend will be dead by weekend, which means I have broken one of your rules...and yet I cannot be killed...I am immortal...who has the power now, friend?"

Marcel: "I assume it's all quiet out there."
Davina: "The Witches know better than to use magic. They know that I can sense it when they do. What about the Old Ones? They're dangerous and I don't want them to hurt you."
Marcel: "The Originals? Davina, as powerful as you are, they don't stand a chance."

Klaus (to Elijah about Rebekah) : "One too many times daggered and shoved in a box, I gather."

Cami: "So what brings you to the Big Easy?"
Elijah: "I used to live here."
Cami: "Really? When?"
Elijah: "Oh, feels like a hundred years ago."
Cami: "I just moved here myself. What brought you back?"
Elijah: "Well, my brother's here somewhere. I'm afraid he might've gotten himself into a bit of a bind."
Cami: "You say that like it's a common occurrence."
Elijah: "Well, he's complicated. Defiant, ill-mannered, and a little temperamental."

Elijah: "Right now, you're the most important person in this family. You need a good home. So, I'm curious. In all this time, has anyone asked you how you feel?"
Hayley: "About having a miracle baby with a psychotic one-night stand?"
Elijah: "About being a mother."
Hayley: "I...I was abandoned when I was born and my adoptive parents kicked me out the second that I turned into a wolf. So...I don't really know how I feel about being a mother because I, I never really had a good one."
Elijah: "I will always protect you. You have my word on that."
Klaus: "And noble Elijah always keeps his word."

Hayley: (to Elijah) "Your dad was a dick."
