Judging from the episode "The Originals," it appears Klaus and his siblings' new storyline is going to be more about supernatural politics than actual battles. Klaus's main adversary is his own apprentice, Marcel, who has taken control of New Orleans. Now he and the witches that live under Marcel's control want to take over Marcel's power. But Marcel's people are fiercely loyal, and many. So for Klaus and the Originals to take Marcel's throne, they can't just muscle their way there, they'd have to win the hearts and minds of the vampires in Marcel's territory, in another word, it's going to be battle of politics. Which makes sense, given the Originals are the most powerful vampires, if the storyline only involve them in phyical fighting, there wouldn't be much to see.
So how well can Klaus do in this kind of battlefield after seeing his tactics against most problems being threats for nearly 3 season?
