Though there are already two versions of the first episode of The CW’s newest series, “The Originals,” — the backdoor pilot that aired in April as an episode of “The Vampire Diaries” and the extended cut released online — get ready to see the story of the pilot re-told all over again. “The Vampire Diaries” spinoff’s first installment is being re-shot from the point of view of Elijah (Daniel Gillies), and we’ve got your first look right here.
In the just-released promo video for the reshot premiere episode, we can already see that by shifting the point of view to Elijah, the story takes on a much more grand and sophisticated feel. Elijah certainly does love his suits — almost as much as he loves his family. While all Klaus (Joseph Morgan) wants is power, Elijah just wants to bring his siblings back together again as a true family.
Watch the new, Elijah-centric preview below:
“The Originals” premieres Thursday, Oct. 3, at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
