We hope you had a wonderful weekend, because your mood about to dip lower than you can even imagine, and it's all thanks to The Originals.

You are not ready for tonight's all-new episode, "When the Levee Breaks," for multiple reasons. But the biggest one? Aunt Dahlia (Claudia Black) is about to claim her first victims (that's right, plural victims) in her battle for baby Hope and her power.

We got the chance to watch the heartbreaking episode early along with a small group of reporters, and we had tears running down our cheeks during multiple parts of the hour. Yeah, this one's going to be tough, guys.


Now, we can't tell you who doesn't make it out of the episode alive (trust us, there's nothing we could say to properly prepare you for this loss), but we can say that more than one major player in New Orleans are going to find themselves out of commission by episode's end. One death comes by Dahlia's hand (and the twist involved makes it hurt even more), but the other takedown is one of the biggest betrayals we've ever seen on this show. You won't see it coming. Neither will the victim.

And for all you patient "Klamille" fans, there is one extended scene between Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Cami (Leah Pipes) in the episode you do not want to miss. Even executive producer Michael Narducci was "blown away" by how emotional and intense the scene turned out. And if one scene isn't enough for you, just know that this scene holds promise for many, many more emotional interactions between these two for the future.


As for Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) and Jackson's (Nathan Parsons) aborted plans to run away to the bayou, just because they didn't make it out last episode, doesn't mean they're content to live under Klaus' protections. And let's just say they're right to worry about their so-called "safe house."

Just because there's a whole lot of dark heading our way on The Originals, Narducci and co. still found some time for a little comedy. The episode begins with the Original siblings arguing over Klaus' rash decision to kill their father Mikael (Sebastian Roche), and let's just say it's one of the funniest scenes we'll be getting on this show for a while. Enjoy it while you can!

The Originals airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on the CW. Be sure to check back here after the episode ends for scoop on the heartbreaking death and what's coming up before the season finale!
