Alaric Saltzman is making his way to New Orleans, and we could not be more excited.
The character who first appeared on The Vampire Diaries will make his debut on The Originals Season 4 Episode 8, which will find him arriving in town with a mysterious artifact.
Could it be linked to the bones The Hollow had in Mystic Falls? Most likely.
Either way, we're excited to find out if he mentions any of the characters from the dearly departed parent series.
The episode also marks the return of Davina, who looks intent on causing some drama.
Have a look at the official stills below.
Be with us as we review the full episode on May 12!
