Mikael is the reasons why Klaus left New Orleans yess and he is the reasons why they ended up in Chicago as well yess. Something happenned with Elijah and Klaus, witch made them enemies.
yeah he said in the last episode forever still means something to me he loves his family.
I think Elijah will start off with Silas calm, trying to work out a way that pleases both of them.
I think TVD writers made a mistake killing off Kol, they could have brought the idea that the mark grows faster when two or more hunters work together.Since they were all magically linked by a pact anyway. That said I think "originals' is named so for Klaus,Elijah and Rebecca but Hayley is probably an original werewolf(there are some hints to that even in TVD) so it's not going to delve on only vampire originals.I think it will look at the mythology of werwolves,vampires maybe even the ancient lineage of witches.
Hopefully if Silas succeeds in destroying the Other Side some of all of the deceased Originals return resurrected or as ghost for the spin-off. Kol was very amusing.
What do you think?
