The Mikaelson family is extremely complicated, and who better to untangle that drama than Julie Plec? The Originals showrunner will blog each week’s installment throughout the season exclusively for EW. From answering burning questions to giving behind-the-scenes stories and more, this is a place for fans to hear directly from Plec about the episode they just watched.
Thanks for watching “Savior,” written by Diane Ademu-John & Carina Adly Mackenzie and directed by The OG’s producer-director Matt Hastings.
We’re a big fan of ruining Christmas in the Mikaelson universe. The tradition began in TVD episode 409 when Klaus slaughtered a dozen hybrids to the tune of Cary Brothers covering “O, Holy Night” and ended the episode savagely drowning Mayor Carol Lockwood in the town fountain while “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” played. This episode was no exception, only this time it wasn’t Klaus doing the murdering. Although I have to imagine he’ll be doing plenty more murdering in the New Year now that he’s woken up with a dead girl in his bed. Tune in on Friday, Jan. 29 to see how Aurora’s latest evil move plays out. Ex-girlfriends are rough.
