About TV show The Originals season 5
Centuries ago, the werewolf-vampire hybrid Klaus Mikaelson (Joseph Morgan) and his half-siblings Elijah (Daniel Gillies) and Rebekah (Claire Holt) helped build the city of New Orleans. But driven back by their own father from there, they are only now returning to the cradle of jazz - only to find that Klaus' dead protégé Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) has seized power. Under his strict rule, the werewolves were driven out of the village and the witches suppressed. The quick-tempered Klaus then plans to push Marcel from the throne and regain control of the city. Since she uses the werewolf-wife Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin), who is pregnant by Klaus, as a means of pressure, the great-grandfather for his project is doing together with the witches, who have ever lured him back to New Orleans.
