If you’re anything like us, you can’t get enough of The Originals – so it’s a good thing we have the new Kol-focused web series, The Awakening, to feed our addiction.


JJJ caught up with writer Carina Mackenzie to get the scoop on how the series came to fruition and what we can expect.

“The first episode I wrote of The Originals back in season one was originally going to tell this flashback story about how Kol’s time in New Orleans had set in motion all these little things that were having an influence on our characters in the present,” Carina said. “We ended up having to do something different with that episode — for a lot of reasons, one of which was that it was airing the same night that Nathaniel Buzolic‘s episode of Supernatural was airing, and there was some concern from the network about that — but I had already written this flashback story. I kind of thought oh well, it’s just gonna be this thing on the cutting room floor. But when the opportunity came up to do this web series with Target, we knew we wanted to do a flashback story, so I repurposed that old story.”

As for how his story connects to what’s currently going on in the French Quarter, Carina said, “It ties together very strongly with what’s happening right now. In present day, Daniel Sharman‘s version of Kol has been flirting with Davina (Danielle Campbell) but we haven’t really heard his plans, his agenda. In the flashbacks, we’ll finally tell the story of what Kol wants for himself, and why he needs Davina, specifically, to get it. We’re also going to introduce a couple of locations in the web series — Kol’s secret clubhouse, and then later another place I can’t tell you about for fear of the spoiler gods striking me down — that are going to become very important on the show.”

Read on to find out what else Carina had to tell them about the web series:

JJJ: What was Nate’s reaction to the idea when you first approached him about it?

CM: I actually don’t know! I wasn’t really involved in those initial conversations. Nate is always great whenever we ask him to come back and play with us — he’s super enthusiastic on set and really committed to the character. I’d met him but never worked with him before this, so I was excited to get to collaborate with him.

JJJ: Nate and Kol both have veryyyy strong fan bases. Is it fun writing to such a beloved character, or do you find it brings added pressure?

CM: I mean, I always feel that pressure — I think all of our characters are beloved. They’re beloved by me, anyway. Basically what I’m saying is that writing for this show is terrifying and I am in a constant state of total panic! But yes, Kol fans are particularly vocal. I think it’s one of those things where you want to give the people what they want, but you also want to make sure you’re telling an organic and interesting story, so we’re never just going to do something because it trends on Twitter a lot. It’s funny — Kol is a total fan favorite but we never knew much about his personal backstory or personal drives on The Vampire Diaries, so I always was kind of surprised by the fervor around the character. I know why people love Nate, obviously, but the Kol obsession surprised me. This season, though, I get it. I’ve totally fallen in love with the character. He’s so, so fun to write. And yes, anxiety-inducing too.

JJJ: How do you approach writing the web series differently than a full episode? What are some of the biggest challenges?

CM: I actually approached it exactly like writing a full episode, it was just… easier. When you write a full episode, you talk about it in terms of the different stories and drives in the episode — the A story, the B story, and the C story. The webisode is the size and length of a typical C story, so I just approached it that way. It was helpful that I also co-wrote episode 207, which is one which ties in pretty heavily with the webisodes, so I could make sure that everything was integrating smoothly, and I worked closely with Julie [Plec] and Marguerite MacIntyre, who wrote episode 209. The biggest challenges were actually production challenges, because we were filming this while concurrently filming episode 208 AND 209! We wanted to make sure that the webisodes have the same production values as our show, obviously, so they were directed by Matt Hastings, who has directed some of our most visually stunning episodes.

JJJ: Nate has said that Kol is the most misunderstood of the family. Do you think Awakening has the potential to change our opinions on him completely?

CM: I don’t know if it’ll change your opinions on him completely, he’s still the same old rascal we know! This week’s episode — of the show, not the web series — will give you some insight into why Kol is the way that he is, though. There’s a specific reason that Kol, as a vampire, was more reckless and madcap and bloodthirsty than his siblings. He had an itch he couldn’t scratch, and we’ll see Daniel Sharman’s Kol talking about that this week. Meanwhile, web series-wise, we’ll learn about his plan to keep Klaus (Joseph Morgan) from daggering him. Spoiler alert, the plan does not go awesomely.

JJJ: In the first installment, we see Kol is trying to get the witches on his side to take down Klaus. And we know he’s built a relationship with Davina in the present, seemingly for the same reason.

CM: At this point, is his agenda clear? Is Davina safe trusting him or is it possible he has something else up his sleeve?
Kol always, always puts himself first. On the show, he seems to be constantly switching sides — first he seems aligned with his mom, then he helps Mikael, but he’s obviously still intent on forging this connection with Davina… there have been a lot of fans asking “Who’s side is he on, anyway?” and the answer is that he’s on his own side. In the webisodes, we’ll find out why he needs Davina specifically… not sure if you picked up on it, but the witch he’s hooking up with in the webisodes is named Mary-Alice Claire. She’s an ancestor of Davina’s. Davina definitely might not be safe with him — but she’s a smart girl, so she doesn’t really trust him, and when she finds out about what happened in 1914, it makes her wary. He’s gonna have to work for it.

JJJ: Right now, it’s a 4-part series. Is there potential for more?

CM: I don’t know if there are conversations about continuing it, but we had a lot of fun making it. I think if Target wanted more and Nate was available we’d definitely talk about it! Personally I have a whole pitch for a web series that’s just Josh (Steven Krueger) shopping at Target, going in for a tube of toothpaste and then coming out with $500 worth of stuff he doesn’t need. I think it’d be great. Nobody listens to me.

We’ve got some bad news for Cami: Last night, she betrayed Finn Mikaelson—and now, it seems the eldest Original brother is going to be sticking around for a while.

Yusuf Gatewood, the man behind The Originals‘ “Finncent,” has been promoted to a series regular, EW has learned exclusively.
“We’re thrilled to annouce that Yusuf Gatewood has been promoted to series regular as of this winter,” executive producer Julie Plec said. “In addition to his incredible talent, he has been a joy to work with—committed, passionate, professional, kind and inspiring. We’re honored to have him as part of the family.”

Paul Wesley Paul Wesley

The Vampire Diaries’ Paul Wesley is jumping from the supernatural to the scientific with Convergence, a sci-fi action film that he’ll star in and produce.

Plot details are being kept under wraps, but Convergence is described as a college-age ensemble piece in the vein of Flatliners, The Matrix, and Fight Club based on real life “science fact”. It follows a group of underground biotech engineers, including an MIT student wunderkind, exploring a new technology far beyond their expectations and beyond the limits of human control.

The actor, director, and producer currently stars as Stefan Salvatore on The CW’s hit show The Vampire Diaries. The series is in its sixth season and will return from its midseason hiatus with a January episode that Wesley directed, his second after making his directorial debut on the show last season.

Who knew that Joanna’s season-finale mantra “this ends now” would translate into a series cancellation for Witches of East End? According to Aunt Wendy’s loving fans and countless supernatural die-hards, hardly anyone expected the show to be axed.

Disappointed fans have launched a campaign to save the show, complete with hashtag (#RenewWitchesOfEastEnd) and online petition, which Channing Tatum has even reportedly signed. Even Witches of East End book series author Melissa de la Cruz is talking with show producers to see if she can incorporate the season 2 storylines into her next spinoff series. This gives fans a bit of hope for closure, especially since we were left with so many cliffhangers. Here is a roundup of all the season/series finale questions that demand answers.

Power Play
Ingrid learns that the Beauchamp women have extra special powers and dear old grandpa is itching to steal them. Freya is the traveler, Ingrid is the key, Joanna is the dagger, and Wendy is the bridge. Do these unique gifts have something to do with Asgard? Perhaps Ingrid is the key to the Asgardian door, Freya is the transportation, Joanna is the brute force in case they run into trouble (likely), and Wendy is the bridge to get back home. More importantly, will they bring Thor back with them? Everyone knows he loves humans.

Cuff Him
Detective Raven is onto Dash. She presumably stole Archibald Browning’s dark and twisty journals that Ingrid reconstituted from ashes. Raven knows that Archie was dabbling in some pretty sick stuff, and she wonders how Dash could be so comfortable living in the middle of all the weirdness. Does Raven know that Dash has powers? Does this make her naughty freak flag fly? Is she a member of the supernatural world or just a groupie? Your guess is as good as mine.
What to Expect
In other cliffhanger news, INGRID IS PREGNANT! It could be Dash’s baby. It could be the ‘Mandragoras. Should we make up a word for the half-human and distant cousin of the blue people in Avatar? Are we going to have to wait for the birth to see if it has rage issues or a tail? Inquiring minds want to know.

Stock Up on Vervain
A season finale wouldn’t be complete without the possible death of a main character. Poor Freddie drew that short stick. A dagger in the gut is a hard way to go, but it’s even more creepy when the murderer leaves a lovely message written in blood next to the body: “Death to witches.” Earlier Freddie healed himself from a stab wound affectionately delivered by his deranged grandfather. Could Freddie heal himself again? That’s a mighty big pool of blood around his listless body. Is he really dead? And who is the witch hater? Perhaps a vampire clan? Will they have hot bodies and glisten in the sun? I could get behind that.

Say You, Say Me
We also learned that one of Freya’s gifts is to recognize Killian’s soul when it’s in another incarnation. This should come in handy since Dash used the evil magic he memorized from the dark and twisty journals to SWITCH BODIES WITH KILLIAN. Setting Killian up for a murder Dash committed is definitely not a lesson in brotherhood, but to then suck face with his soul mate who quite literally just woke him up from the dead using true love’s kiss? That’s just uncool. How long will it take for Freya to figure out that Killian is really Dash? We may never know.

Nine Lives
The Beauchamp women throw down with Daddy Dearest and he vanishes, leaving Tommy’s shell of a body dead on the ground. Full of guilt and in a moment of completely selflessness, Aunt Wendy transfers her last life into Tommy’s body. Her necklace turns black. Aunt Wendy fans everywhere scream in protest. Moments later, she wakes up in a sea of fire. A figure emerges from the shadows to deliver a single line: “Good to see you again, sister.” Spoiler alert: The sister is not Joanna. Second spoiler: We may never know anything about the secret Beauchamp who lives in the underworld.

What are your theories behind the season 2 cliffhangers? Do you think Witches of East End has a shot of coming back for season 3? Would you like to see the Beauchamps travel to Asgard? Are you pumped Hot Tommy is alive again?
