Nicholas Sparks has more than a fair share of romantic weepy films for love story addicts to choose from, the latest being The Best of Me starring James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan in a predictable tissue grabbing movie. Set in Louisiana it features the age old cliche of star crossed young lovers where the boy is from the wrong side of the tracks and the girl comes from a monied background. Her father offers to buy off the teenage boy she loves, but as things turn out, that futile and infuriating gesture was not really necessary.
The Originals season two premiere began with Rebekah telling baby Hope a fairy tale version of the Mikaelson family, specifically about Elijah and Klaus along with mother Hayley.

After the tale ends, Elijah goes out to preserve buildings in the quarter and he discovers the last of the stone rings that needs to be captured.

The time period of the doppelganger episode is in “viking times” and according to Nina herself, Tatia is the very first doppelganger, the most pure and most “unaffected.”
