Tonight we kick off a brand new season of The Originals 2017 and with that comes a lot of questions that most of us are still looking for answers to. Will Hayley be able to cure the Mikaelson’s tonight on The Originals season 4? Keep reading my full The Originals 2017 recap for all the details! If you need a refresher on what happened at the end of last season, check out our The Originals recap right here to get caught up! Tonight’s premiere of The Originals season 4 started off with Vincent talking to the witches about all the tourists walking around for Mardi Gras. He then goes into how this day marks the fifth anniversary of Niklaus’ defeat and the start of peace. He also adds that the out of town vampires are going to cause trouble unless they stop them from doing so. We then get a look at Niklaus sitting in a dungeon looking cell somewhere.
We then see Marcel talking to a woman who has some information for Marcel about Niklaus’ allies coming to aid in his rescue and even teaming up with some of the witches. She also mentions that Alistair Ducati is looking for Hayley, mainly because the sired vampires of Elijah’s are still alive, which means so is Elijah. This leads him to believe that Hayley try to cure the Mikaelson’s and wake them up.
We then get a look at Hayley who is in the bayous somewhere hiding with Hope. Mary is coming to watch Hope for Hayley and she also has some information on where Hayley can find the seventh werewolf tribe she needs to be able to wake the Mikaelson’s but she is worried about her chasing this lead. She has been looking for five years and now all of a sudden Mary got this lead, she thinks that this is a trap.
Marcel goes to visit Vincent at the bar and it seems that the truce is in full effect, but Marcel asks him to make sure that the truce stays intact and tells him about the information that he was given. Marcel then heads to talk to Niklaus, calls it a civil conversation, but Niklaus doesn’t have anything to say to him.
Hayley is heading out to chase the lead on the seventh werewolf pack and saying goodbye to Hope, telling her that she needs to make sure she behaves for Mary. Later we see Marcel meeting with Alistair, who brought him a gift so Marcel offers him a drink of some top notch scotch. After he takes the drink, he tells Marcel that what he really wants is to watch Niklaus suffer for what he did to his family. He turned Alistair and then compelled him to kill his entire estate, including his wife and child. Alistair doesn’t want to just see Niklaus suffer, he wants to see him dead. Marcel tells him that he has Niklaus right where he wants him and he doesn’t take kindly to ultimatums.
Hayley finds the girl who is part of the werewolf pack that she needed to find, but she feels threatened and runs off. Hayley tells her that she isn’t there to fight her, she needs her because she is the last of her kind, but she tells Hayley she doesn’t care about her problems. Hayley tells her that she should because there are others out there that know she is the last of her kind and that she is special. She tells Hayley that she has a life, friends, a relationship and a career and if they want to take that from her, they are going to have to kill her. Hayley then hears Alistair’s people approaching and knocks her out and runs off with her.
Marcel goes to scold Niklaus for the bogus advice on how to deal with Alistair, but then it turns into Marcel telling him about Elijah’s sireline still being around which means that he is still alive. He tells Niklaus that he found out that his siblings lives are connected to his and if he kills Niklaus, they will all die, including Rebekah. Luckily for Niklaus, Marcel still loves Rebekah. Niklaus then mocks Marcel, but Marcel then adds that Alistair wants a drop of blood from Niklaus so he can track his family, including Hope and that’s when Niklaus tells Marcel that in order to beat Alistair, he will need Niklaus’ help.
Meanwhile, Hayley is able to get the werewolf venom from her new found friend and uses it and the venom from the other six packs to wake Freya. She asks Hayley for the ingredients she asked for and says that she has them and adds if she can’t make cures out of all of that stuff, Kol and Elijah will die. Rebekah needs Freya to siphon her hex, but the other two actually need cures for their bites in order to survive.
While Freya sets up to cure Kol and Elijah, Alistair’s men show up to crash the party, but Hayley plans on stalling as long as she can. Meanwhile, Marcel is putting on a show for Alistair, but Marcel had Vincent put a powerful barrier spell around Niklaus for this show. Marcel hands Alistair the sword that Alistair gave him earlier and it is laced with Marcel’s venom which will make Niklaus suffer and slow and agonizing death.
Alistair goes into the barrier circle and starts to beat the hell out of Niklaus and while doing so he threatens to find Hope and kill her so Niklaus attacks him and bites him. He then uses the knife on another spectator and bites a third before Marcel puts a stop to him and Marcel uses this as a learning tool. He tells them that Alistair has a nasty bite, but they have the cure for it in Niklaus’ blood and that’s why he keeps Niklaus alive, in case the wolves get out of hand.
Meanwhile, Hayley is fighting off Alistair’s henchmen while Freya comes up with a cure for Elijah and Kol’s bites. She thinks she has it and she applies it to their wounds and we go back to watching Hayley fighting Alistair’s guys again. She turned into a werewolf and attacked them all and when she changes back a couple of them look like they are going to keep fighting. She asks them if they want more and all of a sudden they are taken out and we see Eljah standing behind her.
We end the episode off with Vincent and Niklaus talking and he tells Vincent that one of these days he will get out of there and seek revenge. Vincent tells him that he had a friend, Cami, and she was convinced that there was still some good in Niklaus but he can’t understand why he is so hell bent on proving her wrong.
Hayley and Elijah are talking and catching up. She tells him about her promise to Hope that one day she would have her entire family back. She tells him now there is only one left to save and Elijah says “Well, lets go get him.” Marcel is now talking to Niklaus and Niklaus is telling him how much Marcel needs him because deep down Marcel is weak and that’s when Marcel puts the dagger back in Niklaus’ chest. Vincent is at the church and he gets a visit from one of the witches, Maxine, and she is freaking out because her son Adam never came home and she has looked everywhere for him.
We then see Adam walking around an old house and inside the house there is a symbol on the wall and a bright light behind him. He starts to scream and we get a look at Hope who just woke up from a nightmare screaming and she has papers all over her floor with the same symbol drawn on them! Could this be a clue to what her powers may be??? Come back next week to find out!
