CW’s “The Originals” returns for Season 3 with just as much family strife and vampire-witch feuding as fans would expect. And to make matters worse, now there’s a serial killer on the loose. As the series prepares to show more vampires descending upon New Orleans to protect their lineage (and possibly stomp out some old threats as well), executive producer and creator Julie Plec talks to Variety about the dangers that await our blood-thristy heroes.

So there’s a serial killer on the loose in New Orleans. Have the writers settled on who the killer is?

Yes. We have figured out [who that is] and I think it’s pretty safe to say that with the arrival of vicious, crazy people in town the odds of someone taking a knife across someone’s cheekbones are pretty strong.

We saw that at the end of the episode, but I didn’t know if that was a red herring.

It could well be. We shall have to see.

You also have a new detective this season, played by “Veronica Mars” alum Jason Dohring, who seems blissfully oblivious to all the supernatural activities in town.

Every now and then when our humans get too deeply in the know, we like to open up the world to humans who don’t know they are living in a supernatural crockpot. Detective Will Kinney is one of the people who is maybe rightfully suspicious and maybe confused in what he finds.

But it is New Orleans, after all. There’s a seedy side to the alleyways and around the corner, regardless, with the supernatural beings. Even when you go visit, there’s vampire tours and tarot card readers and alleged witches. For him, he’s trying to figure out what’s real and what’s not.

There’s no way he’s a pawn in all this and he’s just been compelled to forget what he knows?

We should ask ourselves what he’s been exposed to in the past and if anybody’s compelled his memories away. It’s just fun to see somebody who isn’t really in the loop yet and how they react to things.

Or he’s totally playing us like Alaric Saltzman (Matt Davis) did on “The Vampire Diaries.”

Can we talk about the character of Rebekah this season? We see her in the flashback in the season premiere in her original form, as played by actress Claire Holt, but fans know that’s not how Rebekah is living today.

At the end of last season, Rebekah left town in the body of Eva Sinclair (played by Maisie Richardson-Sellers) to go off and live up to the promise she made to her brother Kol (Nathaniel Buzolic) and find a spell that would bring him back to life. We get to see Claire Holt in the flashbacks at the beginning of the season. I can tease that we will be seeing Claire Holt as Rebekah before the fall is over.

Will Elijah (Daniel Gillies) ever get closure after all the anguish his brother Klaus (Joseph Morgan) has put upon him — particularly after last season’s death?

I think the good thing about Elijah and his resentment toward Klaus and his frustration with the family dynamic — and generally his fury attached to his current standing in life — will come in handy as these new enemies reveal themselves. The children have come back to town to punish their parents.

Klaus, at least, seems to be very selective about who he chooses to make his children.

We want to be very specific about who turns who and why. Over the course of the season, we’ll have nice flashback episodes that tell us more about some of these new — but old — vampires.

“He will eventually fight back [against Max Rager], but it takes him a while to get his bearings,” executive producer Rob Thomas tells THR.
[Warning: This post contains spoilers from the iZombie season two premiere.]

Major (Robert Buckley) is on a mission in iZombie season two… and he’s not happy about it.

At the end of the premiere, Liv’s (Rose McIver) ex-fiance found himself being blackmailed by the evil Max Rager head honcho Vaughn (Steven Weber) to hunt down and kill all the zombies in Seattle, or else Max would take out the one zombie they know of: Liv.

After spying on him, Vaughn found out that since Major was cured of being a zombie, he can now sense when another zombie is around, making him the perfect weapon to take care of the ever-growing zombie population in the city. The hour ended with Major’s first ordered kill, a father of two who hadn’t done anything wrong besides getting turned into a zombie.

iZombie executive producer Rob Thomas spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about Major’s mission this season, how it will affect his already-frosty relationship with Liv, and more.

Last season, Major spent a good chunk of time trying to hunt zombies down on his own. But now that he’s being blackmailed to do it by Vaughn, how is his journey going to look different this season?

The huge difference is that last year, he didn’t even end up killing any zombies until the finale. And they were murderous bad guys. They were killing the teenagers he worked with. At that point, he was just out to find out who was doing it and trying to make it stop. But this year it’s such a tougher position because, through Liv, he knows that these zombies are not zombies of their own free will. They have families and they’re good people. Of course, there are probably some bad zombies as well but the first zombie he takes out is a family man, and his kids are crying on the news after he disappears. It’s tearing Major up. It’s going to be a very different journey for him this year. Last year, it could almost feel like he was on the noble side of things. But this year, he’s struggling. It’s going to be juicy and fun. We have big plans for him this season.

Obviously he’s going to be dealing with the emotional ramifications of this for a while, but is he going to start to fight back against Vaughn and Max Rager at all?

Yeah, he will eventually fight back, but it takes him a while to get his bearings. There’s a good deal of paranoia that comes with it, too. He can already tell that Max Rager is following him, and listening in to his conversations. He needs to find out what they know, how they’re watching him, what are their weak spots, and once he figures all that out, he’ll start to put together a plan.

Major still has feelings for Liv, seeing as how he’s doing all this to save her life. How is his secret mission going to affect their relationship moving forward?

This will send Major spiraling into a utopium addiction, and that runs hand-in-hand with his difficult relationship with Liv who isn’t as aware as Ravi will be to what Major is going through. Ravi doesn’t even know about Major killing zombies but Ravi will at least see the addiction problems firsthand that Liv doesn’t. Major will eventually hit rock bottom and, at a certain point, he’ll have to throw out a lifeline. The question is whether Major and Liv are too far past the point of repairing their relationship for Liv to be there for him when that happens. We have to take him all the way down, but I wouldn’t be a fan if we did that for half of a season. I’d get tired of that pretty quick.

So he will eventually turn to someone for help?

Well, it’s interesting. It’s a hard story to write because there’s really no one he can tell about all this. The network keeps asking, “Well, what’s going on in his head? Why is he doing this? What is he thinking?” Do we make Major start keeping a video journal? (Laughs.) There’s no one he can confide in about this. But eventually, he goes to take out a zombie and it doesn’t go exactly as planned and he gets to have a conversation about it with a zombie who he is abducting, and we finally get to hear a bit about what’s in Major’s head. But it takes a few episodes to get there. It’s written but not shot yet and it’s going to be great.

Where did the inspiration come from for the cure’s first side effect, with Blaine (David Anders) and Major being able to sense other zombies?

There was a lot of conversation about how we depict Major sensing a zombie. For so long, we were trying to figure it out. We can’t have him smell zombies. If we make Robert Buckley play having to sniff a zombie, I mean. (Laughs.) We can’t. It would also indicate that Liv smells, or smells like death. We didn’t want the audience thinking that, or how dumb it would look. (Laughs.) The discussion to get to “hair standing on end” was just days of talking about that and only that.

Are we going to see other side effects start to present themselves?

The cure is not … well, let’s just say that Ravi needs to keep working on the cure. The cure is not perfect in its current form. There will be other stories generated by certain things that the cure lacks that will throw them into the fire more.

Now that Vaughn’s assistant Gilda (Leanne Lapp) is posing as Liv’s roommate, what are we going to see from that dynamic going forward?

You’ll get to learn a lot more about Gilda and who she is and what she wants. Liv certainly doesn’t have the same relationship with Gilda, or even something close, to what she had with Peyton. Gilda’s a wildcard for Liv and she can’t really peg her. Try as she might, Gilda can’t convincingly play “friend” to Liv. There’s also something a little off about her. I’m not sure if Liv will ever take her completely in, but Gilda will still have this mission of being a step ahead of Liv and Major. It will all come to a head at some point, but not for a very long time.

IF YOU HAVE NOT WATCHED THE FIRST EPISODE OF THE SEASON DO NOT READ ON UNLESS YOU WANT SPOILERS!!! THIS IS YOUR WARNING!!!

TVLine spoke with executive producer Julie Plec about how the premiere’s twists will shape the rest of the season

But first, a quick recap: Damon, Bonnie and Alaric returned from their European bender — where Damon nearly let Bonnie die in order to get Elena back — to find that their home is now under the control of Lily and her “family” of Heretics. Damon chose a direct approach to the problem, ripping out beloved Heretic Malcolm’s heart, while Alaric chose to celebrate his return by visiting Jo… at the morgue.

Meanwhile, Caroline and Stefan’s attempt to eliminate the Heretics (did somebody order a bomb?) totally backfired, as Lily’s “children” not only survived the blast, but also ate most of Matt’s fellow police academy graduates. And although Caroline came clean to Stefan about how “happy” he makes her, that happiness was tragically short-lived; Enzo chose to side with Lily, kidnapping Ms. Forbes in the process.

Lastly, a three-year flash-forward revealed that Damon — who apparently decides to hibernate in Brooklyn until Elena wakes up — and Stefan are being hunted by a mysterious crossbow-wielding lunatic. Must be Thursday!
Below, Plec explains the premiere’s biggest twists (WTF, Enzo?!) and teases what the rest of Season 7 holds:

TVLINE | Is the plan to catch up to the three-year jump by the end of the season?
Yes, that’s the plan — probably about three-quarters of the way through the season, actually.

TVLINE | So you must have everything pretty well mapped out.
Oh, yes. The thing about flash-forwards is that you do your best to map everything out at the beginning, because if you screw up, you’re stuck with it forever. We laid out the broad strokes of what we wanted to do and what little surprises we wanted to drop along the way. But we’ve also made some new discoveries in doing that; characters who perhaps weren’t going to live to see three years from now are now alive in their own flash-forwards. [Laughs] It’s good for our actors to know they might survive the time jump.

TVLINE | Let’s talk about that woman coming after Damon and Stefan with the crossbow. Is she someone we know? Someone we’re going to meet?
That’s Stephen Amell in drag. [Laughs] I can’t say, but a lot of people have told me their theories and there have been a couple doozies. I think it’s more fun to keep people guessing.

TVLINE | I loved hearing Caroline tell Stefan that he makes her happy. How close are we to getting a label on that relationship?
This year’s going to be a very peculiar year for their relationship. They’re definitely committed to trying to make it work, and if any two people can achieve what they set out to do, I think it’s them. But there are going to be a lot of curveballs thrown their way over the first part of the season that they’re going to have to wrap their heads around and circumvent in order to remain committed and happy.

TVLINE | So it’s mostly external forces getting in the way for them?
Yeah, some pretty bananas external forces, truth be told. Next week, we get the first glimpse of one of them.

TVLINE | Speaking of Caroline, Enzo kidnapping her seems to imply he’s made his choice. Is he officially a bad guy?
I don’t know if he’s officially a bad guy; he’s someone who’s always been on the fringe, looking for a tribe. He’s chosen Lily and her tribe because she’s the one person who’s been consistently warm and caring towards him. As the person who sired him, he feels this loyalty to her that he’s having a hard time shaking.

TVLINE | So we might see him playing both sides for a bit?
He’s definitely made his allegiance clear, but ultimately, he’s going to have to ask himself, “Is my allegiance to this crazy group of people, or is it to Lily? And if it is to Lily, why?” He’ll be faced with some interesting questions about why he cares so much.

TVLINE | The Heretics are clearly pissed about Malcolm. Who should we be most concerned about in terms of them seeking revenge?
I think you need to be a little bit worried about everyone. The question is: Now that Damon has acted out, what will Lily do to punish him? Will she punish him directly? As we’ve seen, Enzo made a move on her behalf to punish Caroline, so I think everybody’s going to have to watch their back as we head into next week.

TVLINE | Elena’s presence was definitely felt in the premiere. As the season goes on, will that let up, or will she always be there in spirit?
She’s always going to be present, emotionally and spiritually, but we won’t spend every episode going down that path about how much Damon misses her, or how different the world is without her. But she will be very much a part of the narrative, the existence of her, specifically as it relates to Damon’s journey and what he has to do to survive the next 22,000 days.

TVLINE | That scene with Alaric at the morgue was chilling. Is he headed to a dark place?
It’s headed to a place that’s equal parts dark and weird and sad and beautiful and hopeful and tragic. [Laughs] Really, any good Vampire Diaries adjective you can throw into the mix applies here.

TVLINE | Lastly, when Candice King first announced her pregnancy, a lot of fans jumped to the conclusion of a Stefan/Caroline baby. Was that ever a thought for you?
We had so many thoughts that were kind of hilarious, the first being: How are we going to create good story if Caroline never comes out from behind her enormous handbag? Or, can we get her an Olivia Pope coat? But I think the decision that we made about how to address and/or not address the pregnancy is very interesting. The fans will be intrigued to see how we either disguise it or embrace it, and that’s really all I can say.
