Cami’s fate remains in question when The Originals returns Friday (The CW, 9/8c), and she isn’t the only Mikaelson associate fans need to worry about.
“There’s been a serious casualty; before long, there will be more casualties,” executive producer Michael Narducci says. “There will be a game-changing shift in who our enemies are.”
Narducci sees the second half of Season 3 as an opportunity for the Mikaelsons to re-strengthen their family bond.
“Our family, who started the season very much at odds, is now backed into a corner together against this new threat,” he explains. “Some of the people we thought were our allies and friends might not necessarily be thus.”
Speaking of mending fences, Narducci also offers hope for fans of Klaus and Hayley’s relationship, which has been a little tense ever since he helped curse her entire pack.
“We’re going to see [Klaus] have to make bridges with some people he’s fallen out with, and I think the big one on that list is Hayley,” he says. “In order for this family to heal, Klaus has to heal his wounds with Elijah … and Hayley.”
But first, vengeance! (Come on, Aurora did just slash his girlfriend’s throat.)
“[Klaus is] about as angry as we’ve ever seen him,” Narducci says. “He’s the one who kills people’s loved ones, who destroys his enemies and tears them apart. Now, someone has done that to him, and in a sense, it’s his fault. Cami was targeted because she was close to Klaus. There’s an element of rage and an element of guilt he must feel, and I think that’s when Klaus is at his most dangerous — when he wants revenge and he wants to take people down for what they’ve done to him. We’ll see Klaus off-balance, unsure of who he can trust.”
