The Originals Premiere will it be a new pilot or will it be the same with only more scenes that was cut do to Stefan, Damon and Elena being in the episode.?
I think it will be new scenes, it would be a waste to keep the already made in the backdoor pilot. However, I think I've read this show will be for already established TVD viewers but also to bring in new people so it's likely the first few episodes will be very introductionary, sort of like the first episodes in season 1 of TVD.
The new pilot will be completely new it won't even have anything the same in. It might add the Davina scenes it might not.
I highly doubt they would show the exact same pilot... that'd be completely dumb and there'd be no use to do so.....Hence the episode was a backdoor episode to see if the series would be a potential series to pick up. Also The backdoor episode is number 1 00 meaning it's not apart of the season..... just a backdoor episode...
but the scenes of Davina and the scenes of Elijah, Sophie and Hayley aren't thoose scenes they were suposed to be shown in the bakdoor pilot. or will they be shown in the new pilot ?
They probably had to cut some they were goint to show, Davina wasn't even introduced which is fine, that wasn't the intention of the Backdoor Pilot. Basically all that was necessary was to show Marcel and that Klaus and his siblings actually had history there (according to Marcel Klaus came to New Orleans in the 300 years ago, must have been during the time USA had reached their independence from Britain and then helped build the city until the 1900s when Mikael came in and drove them away).
When the show is done I really want a good time line of the history behind the originals due to their vast age, it would be cool to feature them all over the world but sadly due to budget it's likely that won't happen.
They will show those parts on the unaired pilot episode. It won't be shown in the actual show. They might edit the Davina scenes onto the first episode but everything else or they might show the other version on the DVD box sets but none of those scenes will be added into the pilot. They will not be revisiting the preganacy scene or the scene where Elijah and Klaus have their lttle talk unless they do a sort of flashback. But no the episode should be brand new, with new footage and everything.
What do you think?
