Back in July at Comic Con I had the honor to sit down with each of the attending cast members and producers and have some nice chats about the show in season one and what’s to come in season two.  They were all excited about the possibilties that season one left them, and it sounded like there were some big plans for season two.

First up was Executive Producer/Creator Julie Plec, who wasn’t too shy with some spoilers.  SPOILER ALERT – she confirmed that Nathaniel Buzolic, aka Kol, the original brother killed off in The Vampire Diaries, but last seen on the other side, has already shot some scenes for season two!  We know that it’s part of a flashback episode, but she also hinted there could be more than that.  Also, Esther and Michael are definitely going to be causing a lot of trouble this season. 

Danielle Campbell was particularly excited about the big upcoming storyline for Davina.  She and original vampire father Michael and going to be spending quite a bit of time together.  She talked a bit about what it’s like working with the very outrageous Sebastian Roche.  Davina also will meet some mysterious stranger that captures her attention, but how will taht tie into all that power she has?  She’s only hinting. 

Joseph Morgan talked a bit about Klaus’ situation, particularly him dealing with the werewolves taking power and killing all those vampires.  It seems that Klaus isn’t going to just surrender! 

One big tidbit that Phoebe Tonkin shared is that the romance between Hayley and Elijah will cool off considerably, and she’ll be spending a lot more time with Klaus, the only other existing hybrid.  Also, Hayley will definitely have some adjustment issues dealing with the werewolves, especially since she’s got that vampire blood running through her now. 

Leah Pipes is such a sweetie!  She’s so bright and cheery and loves that she’s part of this show in season two.  Cami will have an important story line and the females will be a force to be reckoned with this season.   She also talks about working with Todd Stashwick and how upset she was over Kiernan being killed off. 

As for Marcel, Charles Michael Davis said that his character also will be dealing with the fallout of the Guerrera werewolves taking over New Orleans. He’s gone into hiding, hurting over the loss of the vampires under his watch.  

Executive Producer Michael Narducci shares several teasers as well.  I love his enthusiasm as much as Julie’s! He says this is the season that will mark the return of some “very angry family members.”  

Here’s the synopsis for episode 2.01, “Rebirth,” courtesy of The CW:

After months of being holed up inside his compound, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) enlists the help of Elijah (Daniel Gillies) and Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) in plotting his revenge against the Guerrera werewolves and vows to take down anyone who poses a threat to baby Hope’s existence. Elijah watches helplessly as Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) spirals downward while mourning the loss of her daughter and struggling to adapt to her new hybrid status.

Exiled by the Guerrera werewolves, who now control the French Quarter, Marcel is still reeling over the destruction of his vampire family and attempts to rebuild his home with the help of Josh (guest star Steven Krueger). Elsewhere, Cami (Leah Pipes), who is attempting to regain some normalcy in her life, seeks comfort in a surprising place.

Lastly, Davina (Danielle Campbell) continues her plan to use Mikael (guest star Sebastian Roche) against Klaus but gets sidetracked when she meets the mysterious, yet charming Kaleb (guest star Daniel Sharman), who holds a few secrets of his own. Lance Anderson directed the episode written by Marguerite MacIntyre and Julie Plec.

Finally, here’s the promo photos for “Rebirth.”  Can I say how excited I am to see Josh in there?
