The Originals‘ Klaus Mikaelson is used to people being angry with him. But when Marcel walked away from the family after Davina’s death, it hit Klaus harder than usual. This time around, he can’t afford to lose anyone else.
EW spoke with Joseph Morgan about what comes next for the father-son duo and a season 4 … inspired by The Bachelor?
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Last week, we saw Klaus and Elijah try to console Marcel, but within the family, is Klaus at all angry at Elijah and Freya for making that decision?
JOSEPH MORGAN: Yeah, I think there’s a frustration certainly. I mean, look, he didn’t really care about Davina, we know that. [Laughs] It’s no secret. But I think he’s learned to be strategic over the years and I don’t know if he would’ve made the same call because Kol is family and they were trying to take out the ancestors and the ancestors had a hold over Kol. It’s easy to say, “You shouldn’t have done that,” but he wasn’t in the position where he was the one having to make that tough call. That plays out. The problem is that while he’s trying to deal with them, things escalate and the prophecy is coming to a head. It’s the last two episodes of our season, so it really moves 100 miles an hour. There’s not much time for a whiskey by the fireplace and a chat about it. [Laughs]
